Hishammuddin Refutes Claims He Decides On Muhyiddin’s Suspension
KUALA SELANGOR, Feb 27 – UMNO vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein has refuted claims that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s suspension from the deputy president’s post was decided by him. However, he said the decision was made unanimously by all the Supreme Council members based on the party’s principle.
“During the UMNO Supreme Council meeting yesterday, coincidentally the president and first vice-president had excused themselves (from the meeting)…I was the most senior member to chair the meeting. I want to verify here that the decision was made after detailed discussions and unanimously by all members of the UMNO Supreme Council, including from Johor,” he said.
He was commenting on the statement by Pagoh UMNO Division deputy chief Ismail Mohamed who blasted him and several other leaders for supporting the decision to suspend Muhyiddin. Hishammuddin said yesterday’s decision cannot please everyone, apart from assisting the party, the deputy president’s duty and responsibility are to assist the president…when president is unable to assist, they had to suspend and the decision was fair.
At the UMNO Supreme Council meeting yesterday, UMNO secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor announced Muhyiddin’s suspension as deputy president with immediate effect and the duties would be performed by vice-president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
