KUALA LUMPUR: Umno Youth today has rejected the idea to form a unity government with any party within Pakatan Harapan.

Its chief Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki said the party should not trade its dignity for the sake of forming a government, which will eventually get rejected by the people.

“Right now, we should focus on strengthening the party. We should not rush to find or beg for sympathy from anyone to form a government using back door.

“For us, we do not want the people to reject us forever because they cannot see any changes in us.

“We should not trade our dignity to establish power using the back door,” he told press conference after addressing the Umno Youth delegates.

Asyraf was asked to comment on Umno Youth stand on the idea to form a unity government.

On Sept 27, Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi in an exclusive interview with NSTP said that the party hopes to form a unity government with any party within Pakatan Harapan as soon as possible.

Zahid had said that although Umno had not set a time frame on the matter, the party hopes it would be achieved by mutual agreement.

He had also said that Umno was open to establish a unity government; before or after Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim becomes prime minister.

Earlier when addressing Umno Youth delegates, Asyraf reminded certain leaders not to practice party hopping or using back door to come into power again.

“We have dignity, we should not trade the trust given by the people.”
