PETALING JAYA: Political analysts have dismissed a PPBM leader’s remark that Umno is no longer a major force in politics.

Universiti Malaya socio-political analyst Awang Azman Awang Pawi said though there might be divisions within Umno’s leadership, the party was far from weak as it had the backing of the grassroots.

He was commenting on PPBM Youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal’s remark that the era when Umno was dominant was over and that the current political scenario demanded that all parties work together.

Awang Azman said despite facing many challenges after the fall of the Barisan Nasional-led government in 2018, Umno had not crumbled. It had even grown stronger, he said.
