PUTRAJAYA: UMNO Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin believes no senior party leader will be sacked at the Supreme Council meeting tomorrow.
“I am 100 per cent certain that there will be no sacking of senior UMNO leaders tomorrow,” he told reporters here today when asked about rumours that deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and vice president Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal would be sacked from the party at the meeting.
Asked about the agenda of the meeting, the Youth and Sports Minister said the council was due to discuss dates for the next general assembly and administrative matters.
“Considering that the Supreme Council had not met for three months, there are several administrative matters to be resolved. Certainly, there will be discussions on current political issues,” he said.
On the UMNO Political Bureau meeting at Perdana Putra yesterday, Khairy said the meeting was conducted in a very conducive environment.
“Of course we all had to speak to each other,” Khairy said when asked if there was good interaction at the meeting.
Muhyiddin and Mohd Shafie, who were dropped from the Cabinet in the reshuffle on July 28, were among those who attended the meeting.–BERNAMA
