Umno Reaffirms Backing For Anwar To Complete Term As Pm
Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan said his party remains committed to supporting the leadership of Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim until the completion of his term for the sake of the country’s political stability.
He said this was in line with the resolution achieved at the party’s annual general assembly last month.
“So, when we support this government, it means Anwar is the prime minister we have (until the end of his term)… so that the country will be stable,” he told reporters after the launch of the Drone Sports Incubator Programme at Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia in Bangi today.
Ahmad (above), who is also deputy finance minister, said this following the decree of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah that His Majesty wished to see Anwar be the last leader to be appointed as Malaysia’s prime minister during his reign as king in his Royal Address at the opening ceremony of the First Meeting of the Second Session of the 15th Parliament today

Ahmad said the country’s political arena was now stable with the formation of the government, which obtained the backing of 148 MPs that constitutes more than two-thirds majority.
“Since the general election (in) 2004, only now we have this much majority,” he said.
During his Royal Address in Parliament today, Sultan Abdullah welcomed the consensus reached by the government, which is in line with His Majesty’s desire to form a stable and strong government.
His Majesty also congratulated Anwar for being appointed as the 10th prime minister and the cabinet members on their appointment, in addition to urging all parties to open their hearts and accept and respect the results of the 15th general election.
