Calls for Ahmad Zahid to resign as Umno President gets louder

More and more Umno local leaders and members are advocating for Umno President Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to resign from the top position.

When Pontian Youth chief Helmi Buang, Seremban Youth chief Zool Amali Hussin and few other members urged Ahmad Zahid to retire with dignity, the Paya Besar division chief Datuk Ahmad Tajuddin Sulaiman joins the chorus.

According to NST’s reports, several banners urging Ahmad Zahid to relinquish his presidency was erected at several places including Seremban, Tanjung Malim, Kuala Kangsar and Bandar Tun Razak.

What they’re saying: “The directionless actions of the Supreme Council members and MPs are threatening Malay support for Umno, which we need to face the 15th general election,” states Datuk Ahmad Tajuddin.

“The many court cases involving Umno leaders, including Ahmad Zahid himself, who is facing a total of 87 charges for corruption and abuse of power, among others is causing a strain on Umno, as the party is now forced to carry the burden of leaders who are currently facing criminal charges.”

The Deputy President Dato’ Seri Utama Mohamad Hasan tweeted in Malay that means, “Follow with wisdom, object with a civilised mindset.”
