KUALA LUMPUR - Umno has questioned the offer by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to engage with the Barisan Nasional Government on national issues.
The matter was one of several issues discussed at the Umno supreme council meeting yesterday.
Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said the supreme council had made a collective decision on the offer but refused to give details.
"We will wait for the party president to announce the decision later," he said after the meeting yesterday.
The meeting was chaired by Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak who did not meet the press as he had to immediately rush for the national-level Hari Raya open house in Malacca.
Anwar, in his Merdeka message, has urged Najib to convene a roundtable discussion between Barisan and Pakatan Rakyat to solve various issues and come out with an unanimous solution.
The Opposition Leader said despite their earlier rejection of the 13th general election, Pakatan was ready to set aside differences with Barisan for the sake of the future and well-being of the country.
He, however, stressed that he was not proposing a unity government.
