KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 29, 2016:
Umno Supreme Council members who have not been invited to attend today’s meeting have been asked stay away, says embattled Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir.
Mukhriz, who had earlier arrived at the party’s headquarters to attend the meeting, said that the directive was issued by Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor in a direct reference to him.
“Those (Umno Supreme Council members) who were not invited have been asked to leave.
“It was a reference to me following the sec-gen’s directive,” he said before leaving Menara Datuk Onn at 4pm.
He had arrived at 3.05pm to attend the meeting purportedly being held to determine his future as Kedah Menteri Besar.
