KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 — UMNO General Assembly this weekend will be the best platform for the party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to explain all rumours and speculations on UMNO-PKR cooperation, according to former Barisan Nasional secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
He said the UMNO president will have the best opportunity to do so in his policy speech at the assembly.
“There have been speculations, questions and contradicting news reports (on the cooperation).
“Some say that the president has discussed it with PKR, some say there was a letter with signatures supporting (PKR president Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim.
“Anwar was also reported as saying that there were discussions, but not cooperation. PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail said they were just normal meetings.”
Annuar, who is also Federal Territories Minister, said this to reporters after attending the handing over ceremony of housekeys to owners of Residensi Razakmas2 apartments graced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin here today.
UMNO General Assembly will be held in a hybrid manner this weekend after being postponed for a year due to COVID-19.
