KUALA LUMPUR, March 18 — UMNO has reiterated its stance of continuing to support the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob in rebuilding the country.
Addressing some 2,680 delegates at the UMNO general assembly here today, UMNO president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi also asked Ismail Sabri, who is party vice-president, to manage the government well.
“Datuk Seri Ismail, take good care of the government; we give our support to our right honourable Prime Minister. Insya-Allah tok mat (deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan) and I as well as others (leaders) will take care of the party.
“We will strengthen the party, (while) tok mail (Ismail Sabri) strengthens the government … the government and the party should be on the same wavelength,” he said when opening the assembly at World Trade Centre (WTC) Kuala Lumpur.
Ahmad Zahid said he and all the UMNO delegates would also like to express their appreciation to Ismail Sabri for his announcement that the government is allowing Employees Provident Fund (EPF) contributors to make a special withdrawal of up to RM10,000 from their accounts.
