Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says his party does not intend to "revisit" cooperation relations with scheming parties or leaders.
Zahid, who is also the deputy prime minister, said cooperation should come from sincerity and not people with manipulative and crafty moves who are not welcome as they are full of tricks.
"Any leader and party that is very manipulative, I don't think we (Umno) should revisit that relationship," he said when asked to comment on a report that PAS is still open to continuing the unification agenda with Umno in Putrajaya last night.
It was reported that PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man had said PAS still took an attitude of reconcilation among the ummah, especially the Malays who still need unifying.
Tuan Ibrahim was commenting on the statement of former Umno Supreme Council member Tajuddin Abdul Rahman, who expressed a need for the spirit of Muafakat Nasional to be revived, especially involving the two parties.
