KUALA LUMPUR: Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said Datuk Seri Mustapha Mohamed and Datuk Seri Anifah Aman’s decision to leave the party was regrettable and disappointing.

Describing them as well-respected and competent leaders, he said they had proven their capabilities in leadership and service to the people.

“Their service and contribution to Umno and the country is undeniable, which we are truly thankful and appreciative of.

“However, they have now chosen different directions and have decided to leave Umno and its course. I am certain that this is not an easy decision for everyone,” he said.

He added that the Umno leadership, especially the party Supreme Council, was “very concerned” with the development.

“I acknowledge that over the past four months, the process of forming a clear direction for Umno and reforming the party post GE14 (14th general election) has not been as fast, progressive and radical as desired by all parties.

“This situation creates a sense of uneasiness and uncertainty which affects all parties.

“Hence, I would like to emphasize that this issue will be given serious attention and emphasis in order to ensure that Umno does not appear to be a party without direction or a party which has deviated from the foundation of its course,” he said in a statement.

Mohamad said there was an urgent need for the reform agenda and the formation of a clear direction of the party to be conveyed to everyone urgently.

“This will be my responsibility, together with the Supreme Council and the party president to execute as soon as possible.

“I hope that all Umno members, supporters and leaders continue to give their full support to the party, especially during this challenging period.

“Hopefully our efforts to restore Umno and its credibility will progress smoothly and the party will gain the confidence of the people once again,” he said.
