Umno veteran Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah urged the Umno Supreme Working Council (MKT) to instruct all members to cut ties with PPBM.
He said the insistence was in line with the wishes of 147 Umno Divisions to cooperate with Muhyiddin Yassin’s party.
“The Supreme Working Council must be implemented whenever necessary for all its members must be done with PPBM according to the spirit and wishes of the 147 Umno Division delegates and must vote to lead Muhyiddin’s leadership as prime minister and head of the National Alliance government.
“… And ask MPs from all components of Barisan Nasional to also vote for Muhyiddin’s leadership as prime minister of the federal government before Parliament chooses to sit in March,” the Umno advisory council chairman said in a statement.
Tengku Razaleigh, who is also the Member of Parliament for Gua Musang, was one of the individuals who announced his resignation to Muhyiddin as prime minister.
Umno had previously applied to determine the fate of its relationship with PPBM at the rally and see it.
The development follows the Umno Division which urged the party to no longer cooperate with its splinter party in GE15, based on the dispute over the seats that both parties want to contest.
