Ahmad Zahid who is also the UMNO President said based on the results of the 2023 UMNO Election which ended yesterday, it was evident that every level of the National leadership and the grassroots, were clearly in support of Unity Government led by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
"This Manifestation is very clear because even though we know that there are efforts to disrupt the current government, it was rejected by the UMNO delegates,” he said after attending the Unity Government secretariat meeting, here tonight.
The meeting today, which lasted for about two hours, was chaired by Anwar who is also the Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman and attended by party leaders of the Unity Government.
Apart from support from UMNO and other BN component parties, Ahmad Zahid expressed confidence that every party, including from Sabah and Sarawak under the Unity Government will continue to support the government.
"Therefore, the combination of 20 parties in the Unity Government will be strengthened by the new leadership of UMNO and Insya-Allah (God Willing) the Unity Government will become stronger,” he said.
