KOTA TINGGI - Johor Umno chairman Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin has described the claims of three Johor Umno warlords joining Perikatan Nasional (PN) as just a rumour.

The Umno vice-president said that the party had not received any information about it as of now.

Therefore, he said the party decided just to leave the rumour as just rumour.

“I even read about it in the newspaper. We have not heard from the party’s leadership whether it was true or not.

“Therefore, we hope this rumour continues to remain as just rumours.

“Politics has its ups and down, but we have our own principles of struggle and insistence on not changing our path. Since there are ups and downs, we sometimes go up and we sometimes go down. It is all according to fate.

“So we just deal with it because we can gain lessons and experience as well as guidance but we still stick to our own principles.

“When the situation is not in our favour then we shouldn’t hop around and so on,” he said in a press conference after visiting Felda Bukit Easter, here, today.

On June 12, PN secretary-general Datuk Seri Hamzah Zainudin, in a press conference at the Parliament lobby said that PN would announce the names of 10 Umno warlords who would join the coalition in the near future.

It was rumoured that three of the 10 warlords were from Johor and were influential leaders who previously held important positions in Umno.

Meanwhile, Khaled described the meeting between Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and former health minister Khairy Jamaluddin to discuss about the direction of the country’s economy as the openness of the Malaysia Madani Government.

“This shows the Prime Minister’s openness to meet and receive opinions from various parties, which could be why he invited Khairy.

“I believe Khairy is also using every opportunity to express his opinions on repairing and boosting Malaysia’s economy,” he said.
