JOHOR BARU: The Pulai Umno division will push for a motion to call for the party to withdraw its support for the Perikatan Nasional-led government, says its chief Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed.
He said that there were cracks appearing within the Perikatan government and it would be wise for Umno to “pack its bags and leave”.
"There is no trust between Umno and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, where a small party dictates a bigger party.
"We can see that the present government has minority support in Parliament with majority of their support coming from the more than 30 Umno MPs," he added.
He said this after launching the division's Wanita wing meeting here on Friday (Jan 1).
Nur Jazlan, who is also Johor Umno deputy chief, added that the Umno supreme council was expected to make a decision by March if the party would continue supporting Perikatan.
He believed other Umno divisions throughout the country would also come up with similar motions.
"When the present government does any good, Umno will not gain anything – but if their actions backfire, Umno gets the brunt of it," he said.
The former Pulai MP said if Umno withdrew its support for the Perikatan government, then a snap general election would be held and urged the division members to carry out necessary preparations.
He added that the division would not let go any of its traditional seats such as the Pulai parliamentary and Kempas state seats to Bersatu. - Star
