KUALA TERENGGANU: All Barisan Nasional Terengganu assemblymen are expected to meet Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak Tuesday night in Putrajaya.
A source revealed that all state represenatives were making their way to Federal administrative centre for the meeting with Najib, who is Umno president and Barisan chairman.
"All assemblymen have been summoned for the meeting tonight.
"The meeting is set to discuss the current political turmoil," the source said.
The source added that the assemblymen would also discuss numerous possibilities, including dissolving the state assembly.
New Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman is believed to be having "important" discussions in the city before making his way to Putrajaya.
On Monday, former Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said quit Umno, hours after Ahmad Razif was sworn in as state MB.
The former Mentri Besar and Kijal assemblyman was soon joined by Ajil assemblyman Ghazali Taib to become independent representatives.
On Tuesday morning, Bukit Besi assemblyman Roslee Daud quit Umno.
The latest developments leave Barisan Nasional with 14 state seats, one fewer than Pakatan Rakyat's 15 in the 32-seat assembly.
However, state legal advisor Datuk Azhar Abdul Hamid has maintained that the state assembly Speaker was counted as a representative of the ruling state government, giving a seat ratio of 15:15:3.
