PEKAN, April 18 (Bernama) — The Umno Supreme Council (MT) and Barisan Nasional (BN) Supreme Council will hold meetings at the end of the month to decide whether to participate in the by-election for the Penanti state constituency in Penang.
He said here today the BN must first consider whether the by-election would benefit the people or otherwise.
“Don’t know yet (whether we opt out or not). We will look first, but I don’t rule out any possibility,” he told reporters after attending the celebration at the Pekan Parliamentary level in conjunction with his appointment as Prime Minister.
In this context, Najib said he would hold a meeting with the Umno Supreme Council (MT) and meet with the presidents of the BN component parties to discuss the matter.
“I will raise the matter at the next Umno MT meeting. If I don’t have the time, I will bring it up to the Political Bureau, and discuss with the BN component party presidents,” he said.
