Calls for Najib to quit threaten entire BN, says Zahid

The onslaught of calls for Datuk Seri Najib Razak's resignation not only threatens the prime minister but the entire Barisan Nasional (BN), Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says. All BN parties as well as groups aligned with the ruling coalition needed to be cautious about this, he said today, after the signing of the Citizens' Declaration urging Najib's removal from office, led by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Umno stalwarts, opposition politicians and civil society leaders. "The opposition is excited to go against the highest leadership in BN and Umno, which forms the government, not only (against) an individual. "If this is threatened, the entire BN and Umno at all levels are threatened," he told reporters after launching Perak Umno's annual general meeting in Ipoh today. The Umno vice-president, who has taken on added responsibilities as deputy president after Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin was suspended from the post last month, also said BN parties and friendly groups should stay united with Umno to face the 14th general election due in 2018. – March 6, 2016.
