MACHANG: Kelantan UMNO will continue to support Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s administration despite the various attempts made by certain quarters to topple him.
Kelantan UMNO Liaison Committee deputy chairman Datuk Ahmad Jazlan Yaakub, who is also Machang UMNO chief, said the cabinet reshuffle made by Najib was indeed an apt decision.
“If we were in his shoes, can we work with our assistant (who has different opinion). An assistant or a deputy should be the one who we can trust.
“This is not about feelings, (but) this is a national matter. How to govern a country if the deputy (and the prime minister) cannot see eye to eye? For me the prime minister has been very patient (in handling this issue),” he told reporters after hosting Machang UMNO Hari Raya Open House at his residence in Bukit Tiu here Thursday.
Jazlan, who was appointed as Deputy Rural and Regional Development Minister during the cabinet reshuffle, also gave assurance that the Kelantan UMNO would stay solidly behind Najib’s administration team to ensure that the national development agenda could continue to be implemented.
