KUALA TERENGGANU: The state Umno Youth hopes that the political turmoil in Terengganu will be resolved soon.
In a statement Thursday, its chief Mohd Johari Abu Bakar said he hoped that the issue would not burden the people.
“The Prime Minister (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak) also said that he is monitoring the situation and does not want the issue to affect the people.
“The matter involves the state government and is not a game. It’s a mandate given to us and it is right for Umno Youth to protect it,” he said.
On Wednesday, all nine state exco members attended an exco meeting, including Ajil assemblyman Ghazali Taib who had called a press conference earlier, to criticise Mentri Besar Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman and to defend Kijal assemblyman Datuk Seri Ahmad Said.
Ahmad Razif declared that he was staying put and downplayed any prospect of a hung assembly occurring when the state assembly convenes on Monday.
The beleaguered leader, who has been under attack by his disgruntled predecessor Ahmad Said, insisted that “all is well with the Umno family” in Terengganu and said that there would not be a snap state election.
