PETALING JAYA: Sungai Besar Umno division chief Datuk Jamal Yunos has made a public apology over his call for Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin to step down as Johor Menteri Besar.
Jamal retracted his statement and said that it was a personal opinion made within a closed group.
The apology was made after consultation with Selangor Umno Liaison Committee Chairman Datuk Seri Noh Omar.
Earlier, Jamal urged Khaled to resign over a contradicting stance in supporting Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Jamal claimed that Khaled appeared to be supportive of the Prime Minister in public, but had been lax in "restraining" his right-hand men from attacking Najib.
