KUALA LUMPUR: Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says MPs from Umno who quit the party must give up their seats and be ready to face a by-election in their constituencies.

He added that MPs who contested on the Barisan Nasional (BN) ticket in the 14th general election had not won in their own capacity.

“The MPs must not get carried away with personal issues and throw the problems to Umno, as if they have no faith in Umno,” he said after chairing the Umno Supreme Council meeting at Menara Dato Onn yesterday.

On the appointment of an opposition leader in Parliament, Zahid said the matter would be discussed with other opposition parties.
