PETALING JAYA: Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi says he will soon explain the party’s actions in sacking and suspending some of its leaders yesterday.
Zahid said he will provide an explanation at an event later.
“Wait, I will explain. I will do it at an event later,” Berita Harian quoted him as saying on the sidelines of an event at Dataran Merdeka today.
However, he did not give any details on when exactly he plans to do it.
Former Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin and former Selangor Umno chief Noh Omar were sacked last night for breaching party discipline during the 15th general election.
The party also suspended its former vice-president and Sembrong MP Hishammuddin Hussein, former information chief Shahril Hamdan, Tebrau Umno division leader Maulizan Bujang and former Jempol MP Salim Sharif for six years.
Five Umno members from Pasir Gudang, nine from Putrajaya, two from Tanjong Karang and 26 from Pahang were also sacked.
