KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 23 — The Umno supreme council will be meeting tonight at its party headquarters at the Putra World Trade Centre here as Malaysia continues to wait for news of its 10th prime minister.

The meeting is scheduled to begin at 8pm and will be chaired by embattled president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

“We invite all the relevant parties to attend this special meeting at the behest of the Umno president,” party secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said in a statement this afternoon.

This morning, Ahmad Zahid led a three-man team from Barisan Nasional (BN) to Istana Negara for an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong as Malaysia’s post-election political impasse continues.

Ahmad is also BN chairman. The other two delegation members were all from Umno too with none of the leaders of the component parties present.
