GE15: BN asked for DPM post, sources say on BN-PN meet
14 days ago
KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional (BN) did not demand for Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob to be made prime minister in its meeting with Perikatan Nasional (PN) today.
Sources said BN, however, had asked for one of their own to be made deputy prime minister (DPM) if both coalitions succeeded in forming the federal government post-15th General Election (GE15).
"They did not request for Ismail Sabri to be made PM. They asked for the DPM post, but no names were mentioned.
"The PM post definitely belongs to PN. BN only won 30 seats in GE15 and asking for a DPM post when they had lost many constituencies is already too much.
