PETALING JAYA: Barisan Nasional (BN) component party MCA has called on Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to resign as coalition chairman following BN’s loss in the general election (GE15).
The call by MCA secretary-general Chong Sin Woon comes in the wake of calls by several Umno leaders for their party president to resign.
Saying MCA had lost confidence in Zahid’s leadership as coalition chairman, Chong said in a statement: “He must respectfully resign so that a new leadership can take over and show the way forward.”
He also expressed disappointment with Zahid’s decision to postpone the BN Supreme Council meeting that was scheduled for tonight.
“At a time when the country’s political situation is still unstable and an uncertain post-GE15, there is an urgent need to hold a BN Supreme Council meeting to discuss recent developments and make decisions as a bloc,” he said.
Chong urged for such a meeting to be held immediately, adding that no person should have the right to enter into negotiations with other parties to form a new government without the council’s mandate.
Earlier, Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan announced the postponement of an emergency Umno Supreme Council meeting that was slated for 3pm today.
Meanwhile, BN’s Padang Serai candidate C Sivarraajh today said the GE15 results sent a clear message that Zahid needed to make way for other leaders to steer the coalition.
“Do what’s best for the coalition, Datuk Seri,” he said in a statement.
Earlier, Johor menteri besar Onn Hafiz Ghazi, former Umno information chief Shahril Hamdan, as well as Umno Supreme Council member Noh Omar had called on Zahid to step down as party president following BN’s poor showing in GE15.
