SHAH ALAM - Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak today stated that attempts by a former leader to drive a wedge between him and Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi would not work as he had full confidence in his deputy.

They had been through both the good and bad times since 1986, said Najib, referring to the time he was Culture, Youth and Sports Minister before Ahmad Zahid joined him as his political secretary.

Besides that, Najib, who is also UMNO president , said he had once helped Ahmad Zahid defend his UMNO Youth head post for the Bagan Datoh UMNO division (now Bagan Datuk).

"That is why I want to say to you that the UMNO leadership is strong, trust me. I have full confidence in my deputy (Ahmad Zahid). No need to dwell on this (whether he has confidence in Ahmad Zahid).There are more important things to do," he said when opening the Shah Alam UMNO division's delegates conference here today.

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who is now chairman of opposition party Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM), earlier this week had stated that about two years ago Ahmad Zahid had come to see him about toppling Najib.

PUTRAJAYA - The Pakatan Harapan leadership will never allow Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to become prime minister should they win the 14th General Election as they are just using him to attack UMNO, said UMNO Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

MARAN - UMNO has remained the country's ruling party over the past 60 years because it has clear political philosophy, direction and substance, says Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
