Bersatu VP urges Zahid and Anwar to come clean on audio clip


Bersatu has called on Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and PKR head Anwar Ibrahim to come clean over their ties after an alleged audio recording involving the two emerged.

In a statement today, Bersatu vice-president Rafiq Naizamohideen (above) said there was mounting evidence that Zahid and Anwar were consorting.

"Evidence includes the Umno president's letter, which was also signed by (former prime minister) Najib Abdul Razak, to support Anwar as prime minister that was handed to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, which has been verified as true by former Umno secretary-general Annuar Musa.

"(Another example is) the cooperation between Perak Umno and Pakatan Harapan to oust the Perak menteri besar, who is a Bersatu member, last year.

"The latest is the (alleged) audio clip of a phone conversation between the Umno president and the Harapan chairperson," Rafiq said.

The two of them owe the public some "honesty", he said, adding that they should come clean on their efforts to consort.

"It is no longer a secret that Umno, under Zahid's leadership, will forge Umno-Harapan ties either before or after the next general election, should no party be able to form the federal government.

"The public now knows that the 'No DAP, No Anwar' slogan during the (Umno general assembly on March 28) by the Umno president is just an act to cover up the 'new alignment' which cannot be accepted by party supporters, members and grassroots of both Umno and Harapan," he said.

Both Zahid and Anwar have denied taking part in the conversation which resulted in a four-minute audio clip that has now been widely shared.

The audio clip contained a voice similar to that of Anwar's "congratulating" the person who sounded like Zahid over the latter's handling of the Umno general assembly.

During the assembly, party delegates had voted to cut ties with Bersatu and gave Zahid the final say on when that should take place.

In denying his involvement, Anwar accused Bersatu of engineering the audio clip in order to cause conflict within Umno.

To this, Rafiq urged Anwar not to point fingers and divert attention from the audio clip. - Mkini
