Tajuddin: Give Umno the DPM post and more ‘strategic’ ministries

Published on 16 Oct 2020 3:38:42 PM

Umno should be given a deputy prime minister post and more strategic minister positions in the Perikatan Nasional government as it is the biggest contributor of seats in Parliament, says Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.

The Umno supreme council member said that on Friday (Oct 16), adding that Umno had not been given the due recognition it deserved despite contributing equally to the formation of the governing coalition.

Asked to comment on his previous comment that Umno was considering throwing its support behind PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Tajuddin said this was a possibility if Umno's demands were not met by its Perikatan partners.

However, he insisted that the party was adamant it would not work with DAP.

Tajuddin also rejected claims that the politicians were more preoccupied with politicking than the rakyat.
