PUTRAJAYA: The call for Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to quit as the Prime Minister and Umno president is merely a â€œnaughty prankâ€ in politics, said Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
The Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister said that the support for Najib’s leadership remained intact, whether it was from Umno or the people.
Speaking at a media conference after launching the Plant Biosecurity Symposium here on Tuesday, the Umno supreme council member said the threat to Najib’s leadership came only from a “very small group”.
According to Ismail Sabri, most of the accusations were made without any basis or evidence.
“It is (expressed) only by a small group of individuals.
“It is not the desire of party members as a whole,” he said, adding that the meeting between the Prime Minister and Umno divisional chiefs at Mondayâ€™s luncheon went smoothly. – Bernama
