KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 22, 2016:
Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak is present at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) here, today to meet with the party’s Kedah leadership.
Najib arrived at about 4.45pm and entered the Dewan Tun Hussein Onn to listen to what the party’s leaders from the northern state had to say following their declaration that they had lost confidence in the leadership of Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir.
It is understood that some 230 people were present to express their thoughts on the state’s political crisis.
The meeting with Najib, who is also Prime Minister, was led by Kedah Umno deputy liaison chairman Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah.
Previously, Ahmad Bashah led a Press conference to announce that the state’s Umno leaders had revoked their support for Mukhriz as Menteri Besar.
Among other leaders present today were Kubang Pasu Umno division chief Datuk Wira Mohd Johari Baharum, Jerai division chief Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, Padang Terap division chief Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, Baling division chief Datuk Seri Azeez Rahim and Langkawi division chief Datuk Nawawi Ahmad.
During the Press conference last Wednesday, Ahmad Bashah had urged for the Prime Minister to step in and resolve the matter.
