KUALA LUMPUR, Jan 29 2016 : Whether Kedah Umno chief Datuk Seri Mukhriz Tun Dr Mahathir attended the party’s Supreme Council (MT) meeting on Friday or not is not an issue, said Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor.
He said this was because Mukhriz was only an appointed MT member and not elected as one.
“If it was decided that he need not attend, then no need to come, that’s all there is to it,” he told the media after the MT meeting here.
Tengku Adnan said he had informed Mukhriz via a telephone call this morning not to attend the meeting.
Mukhriz, who is also Kedah Menteri Besar, attended the meeting from about 3 pm before leaving about an hour later.
When met by reporters, Mukhriz said he had been asked by Tengku Adnan to leave. – Bernama
