KUALA LUMPUR, May 11 — Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi took a swipe at former ally PAS today, saying that the latter will eventually abandon its current partners in Perikatan Nasional (PN).

In his speech during the celebration of Umno’s 77th anniversary, Ahmad Zahid said that the Islamist party has a tendency to abandon partners every time it joins any political coalition, just like it did in Muafakat Nasional, which united Umno and PAS.

“We tried with the intention of wanting to bring about the unification of the ‘ummah’, we have tried in the name of the charter and national consensus, but the party will be kicked out, including us.

“I am sure that the coalition of parties that the party is participating in now even now when the chaos starts to happen, I think that the coalition will soon break and the political partners will also be kicked out as they kicked us out,” he addressed the attendees of the event.
