Umno Youth has poured cold water on the Tebrau party chief’s suggestion that it is better for president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to remain on leave rather than to return to lead the party.

Umno Youth chief Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki said Tebrau chief Maulizan Bujang’s statement does not reflect the party's stand.

He added that Umno Youth has never discussed the status of the party president.

"It’s only his personal opinion, not reflective of Umno's grassroots voice.

"For us it’s better to focus on more important issues at the moment,” he told reporters in Kepala Batas today.

Earlier today, Maulizan said attempts to bring back Zahid to lead Umno were not good for the party, as it seemed to be recovering under the leadership of acting president Mohamad Hassan.

He claimed there were moves by Zahid’s supporters to bring him back from leave and resume his duties as Umno president.
