JO­HOR BARU: The de­par­ture of sev­eral se­nior party lead­ers to form splin­ter par­ties is best de­scribed as “his­tory re­peat­ing it­self”, said Umno supreme coun­cil mem­ber Datuk Ah­mad Maslan. Ex­press­ing his con­fi­dence Umno will bounce back from such set­backs, Ah­mad said dur­ing the ten­ure of for­mer pres­i­dent Tun Dr Ma­hathir Mo­hamad, Se­man­gat 46 was formed fol­low­ing the party cri­sis in 1987 but was dis­solved in 1996 when its mem­bers chose to re­join the Barisan Na­sional. “Umno has staved off its chal­lenge and now with our for­mer deputy pres­i­dent do­ing the same, I am con­fi­dent we will pre­vail again,” he said at Jo­hor Umno con­ven­tion yes­ter­day.
