Mukhriz Has To Apologize To PM, Says Syed Hamid

Apology, apology... who cares about apology?!

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 19 (Bernama) -- Umno Supreme Council member Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar said Umno Youth executive council member Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir has to apologize to Prime Minister and Umno President Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi over an offending remark he made last Wednesday.

He said that Mukhriz, as an Umno member, should apologize for having said that there was nothing new in the policy speech delivered by Abdullah when opening the Umno general assembly then.

He also said that Mukhriz should have known where to draw the line between party priorities and family interests.

Syed Hamid, who is the foreign minister, said there was no quarrel over Mukhriz's affection for his father, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, but he has to make a stand between party and family interests.
