PETALING JAYA: Analysts say they expect more Umno leaders at the state and division levels to push for party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to step down from the post.

This comes after former Umno deputy president Musa Hitam hit out at party leaders facing charges in court, saying they should step away from leading the party until proven innocent.

Universiti Utara Malaysia’s (UUM) Kamarul Zaman Yusoff said he was surprised by Musa’s strong rebuke against the leaders, adding that it would serve as a catalyst for others to speak out against top men like Zahid.

“I expect more from Umno to be emboldened to speak out after this. It is also caused by the coverage of Zahid’s court case, which indirectly gives Umno a bad image,” he told FMT.
