‘Uphill battle for Umno, DAP leaders convincing grassroots to accept unity govt’

JOHOR BARU – Umno and DAP leaders have a lot of work to do convincing their grassroots as the two political parties, with a long tradition of going against one another, are now part of the unity government, said retired politician Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar.

The former foreign minister said while the decision to join hands had been mainly received well by the party leaders, it remains to be seen whether ordinary Umno and DAP members can accept both parties working in tandem in the government due to an arduous, stormy history between them.

Syed Hamid said that failure to convince the party grassroots of the benefits of forging a relationship with its former enemies would spell trouble, especially for Umno leaders, as the party will be holding its internal party election sometime next year.
