Annuar explains 'Muhyiddin for GE15' comment amid internal pushback

Modified 7 Jul 2020, 1:41 pm

Umno supreme council member Annuar Musa today clarified that his statement about supporting Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin as prime minister is for the present, but he could not say if the general election were to be held several years down the road.

Annuar maintained that there was no contradiction amid pushback from several senior Umno leaders who insisted that an Umno leader should become the prime ministerial candidate if the party could win the most seats in the next general election.
