Mohamad Hasan is reportedly pushing for the purported amendment to the UMNO constitution, which would see party leaders facing court action dropped from their posts.
Mohamad is pressing for this, along with his ally and vice-president Mohamed Khaled Nordin, who has been tasked with overseeing the changes to the party constitution.
Earlier this month, UMNO is seeking to amend Clause 9.9 of its constitution in an extraordinary general meeting in November.
If successful, the move
will see Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and his predecessor Najib Abdul
Razak automatically dropped from their posts.
Najib now heads the Pekan division of the party.
However, the move will not be easy as constitutional amendments need to be agreed to by two-thirds of delegates at the EGM.
Several party leaders have confirmed the proposed change to the amendment.
