KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will be attending the wedding reception of the daughter of Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said at his residence in Kemaman on May 17.

Najib said he did not realise that there would be a reception after the wedding which took place last Saturday.

“This was the source of the misunderstanding, but we have cleared that quickly,” the Umno president told reporters at the launch of Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Berhad (PUNB) Auto Forum 2014 here on Thursday.

Najib also thanked Ahmad and the two other Umno assemblymen for the party spirit shown by returning to the fold.

“I hope this will be a lesson for us to strengthen our position in Terengganu, as we press on with our struggle and ensure the continuous support of the rakyat for Barisan Nasional,” he added.

Ahmad’s daughter’s wedding took place on May 10 in Kuala Terengganu to accommodate the Terengganu Sultan, but the reception on the bride’s side will be held on May 17 in Kijal. The groom’s family will hold their reception on May 31 in Kuala Lumpur.

The Kijal assemblyman had caused a stir in the Terengganu political scene for quitting Umno, just hours after he was replaced by Datuk Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman as Mentri Besar on Monday.

Ahmad, who was initially joined by Aji assemblyman Ghazali Taib and Bukit Besi rep Roslee Daud in resigning from the party, was reportedly upset that Najib had removed him from the state's top job before his daughter's wedding reception was to take place.

The three assemblymen have since retracted their resignations.
