Barisan secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said Mohamad's statement was his personal opinion.
"I would like to stress that Barisan upholds the Federal Constitution and the supremacy of the law. The case involving the Bersih 3.0 rally is still being investigated by the authorities," he said in a statement Wednesday.
On Tuesday, while debating the Supplementary Supply Bill, Mohamad said Ambiga should be hanged for the "treasonous act" of organising the April 28 Bersih 3.0 demonstration.
He compared her to the militant Al-Ma'unah group, whose leader were sentenced to death for treason for leading a raid on two army camps, and stealing ammunition and weapons, in 2000.
