PETALING JAYA: There is growing dissatisfaction within Umno towards its president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim, says Shahril Hamdan and Khairy Jamaluddin.

The two former Umno leaders said this followed the Federal Court’s decision to dismiss former prime minister Najib Razak’s bid to review his conviction and sentence in the SRC International corruption case.

In an episode of the “Keluar Sekejap” podcast with Khairy, Shahril said there would be political implications for Zahid and the Anwar-led unity government following the apex court’s decision.

“Neither side (Pakatan Harapan or Umno) will admit this, but one of the things that made Umno ready to work with PH was the hope that Najib would be freed.

PETALING JAYA: Analysts have dismissed claims that top Umno leaders are becoming increasingly dissatisfied with party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi following the Federal Court’s dismissal of Najib Razak’s corruption case review.

Azmi Hassan of Akademi Nusantara said about 80% of Umno’s current leadership lineup comprised “Zahid’s men”.

“Zahid is in control. And a majority of his rivals such as Khairy Jamaluddin, Annuar Musa and Shahril Hamdan have been removed. This means the internal bickering has been reduced,” he told FMT.

Khairy and Annuar were sacked from the party in February, while Shahril was suspended for six years.
