PUTRAJAYA: Umno’s political bureau meeting, which was a prelude to the much anticipated supreme council meeting tomorrow, went smoothly without incident.
Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin described the mood of yesterday’s meeting as “positive”, with all senior leaders in attendance.
“Good Biro Politik Umno meeting chaired by @NajibRazak. All senior office bearers in attendance. Positive mood,” he tweeted.
Party vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein also shared the same sentiment that the meeting, which was also attended by Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and vice-president Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, went on smoothly.
The meeting was chaired by party president and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
It started at about 9.30am and lasted nearly an hour.
This is the party’s first political bureau meeting after a Cabinet reshuffle which saw Muhyiddin and Shafie dropped in July.
Rumours are rife that Muhyiddin and Shafie as well as seven other supreme council members will be sacked at the supreme council meeting.
