KUALA LUMPUR: One of the two deputy prime minister posts set under the unity government's upcoming cabinet should be held by the Umno president, an expert said.
National Professors' Council fellow Dr Muhammad Asri Mohd Ali said this was to prevent dissension within a party that helped form the cabinet.
Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is currently BN chairman and Umno president.
"The person who will be the next deputy prime minister is important to me because if none of the top leaders (of the party he is from) is appointed to the position, it will create problems (starting) in the component party.
