UMNO now has reason to sack Nazri to prove the party isn’t with Anwar

Nazri is one of the 120 MPs who pledged support for Anwar as Prime Minister but isn’t among the 55 that signed “retraction SDs” or the 40 (estimate to date) that signed “self-protection SDs.” Source (pic): Yahoo! News Malaysia

In UMNO’s books, to pledge support for a politician who is against the party or is on the other side of the political isle is reason enough to earn one the sack. 

As a matter of fact, one of the many reasons cited by the Majlis Tertinggi UMNO (MKT) when sacking Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was the fact that he shared a stage with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Lim Kit Siang when openly criticising the party leadership.

Given that Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim is the so-called Prime Minister ‘in waiting’ and given his open aversion towards UMNO, pledging support for him is reason enough for the MKT to sack Nazri.

That having been said, Nazri is one of the 120 MPs who pledged support for Anwar as Prime Minister but isn’t among the 55 that signed “retraction SDs” or the 40 (estimate to date) that signed “self-protection SDs.”


PETALING JAYA: Dato’ Seri Nazri Aziz pledged support to PKR president Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim today but insisted he was not planning to abandon Umno.

“I only support Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, as in me personally. Can’t those in Umno support him? He was my Youth chief,” says Nazri, in reference to Anwar’s position in Umno back in the early 1980s.

Note, this isn’t the first time Nazri has pledged support for Anwar.


On the 31st of October 2018, TTF wrote:

Nazri went so far as to declare support for Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim and openly backed the PKR de facto chief’s Port Dickson by-election campaign despite it being a launching pad for the latter’s premiership bid.

The fact that the MKT did not initiate action against Nazri goes a long way to show that its members are backing Anwar (and two senior UMNO leaders) towards the establishment of a “PAS-PKR-UMNO unity government” through the backdoor.

TTF has repeatedly maintained that that the unity-government concept is a no-go considering that the PAS Syura Council wants nothing to do with Zahid (or Anwar) insofar as the formation of a unity coalition is concerned.

Firstly, in UMNO’s books, to pledge support for a politician who is against the party or is on the other side of the political isle is reason enough to earn one the sack.
