Call for emergency meeting on Mukhriz's statement

(The Star) KUALA LUMPUR: State Umno Youth chiefs have unanimously called for an emergency Exco meeting to discuss the purported insult made by Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir against party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Spokesman for the group, Ashakari Abu Noor, who is also the Malacca Umno Youth chief, said Mukhriz, who is an Exco member, had broken ranks.

"We are taking his comments very seriously. He has belittled the president's policy speech. We are calling collectively for him to review his post as Exco member," he said at a press conference.

All the other state Youth chiefs were also present at the press conference.

Mukhriz had said on Wednesday that Abdullah's speech at the Umno general assembly contained nothing new.
