KJ and 'another rival's' fate to be known tomorrow, says Zahid
PUTRAJAYA - The fate of former Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin and 'another person' will be decided during Umno's supreme council meeting tomorrow night, said party President Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
He said it was part of a large-scale purge within the party as decided in the last Umno General Assembly.
"When it's massive, it means other individuals," he said in a press conference, here, today.
The close door meeting will be held at Umno headquaarters, 8pm tomorrow.
The deputy prime minister however stopped short at: "I can't tell you in advance. If the strategy is shared with journalists, it is no longer a strategy.
"I need to embargo the information until tomorrow," he said.
He further said: "Please come in large numbers if you want to know the list of those involved."
During the recent Umno general assembly, Zahid was reported to have assured that he would carry out a thorough clean up so that Umno would be uplifted again.
Among the names mentioned to be involved in the cleanup is Khairy after the Deputy President Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan confirmed the membership status of the former Health Minister will be determined in the MKT meeting.
Khairy previously criticised the party after the top two party posts were not contested.
He described it as "madness" and an attempt to stifle democracy.
