Annuar Musa criticises Ahmad Maslan for urging Umno MPs to support an immediate Parliamentary sitting

PETALING JAYA: Tan Sri Annuar Musa has criticised Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan for urging Umno MPs to agree to an immediate Parliamentary sitting.

In a response to a letter allegedly sent to all Umno MPs on Monday (Jan 18), the Ketereh MP said Ahmad's actions went against party president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The letter also stated that Umno MPs are supposed to reply to Ahmad by 12.30pm on Tuesday (Jan 19).

"Your action was not discussed nor decided by the party," he said in a letter to the Pontian MP, which he also posted on Twitter.

Annuar, who was recently removed as Barisan Nasional secretary-general, said Ahmad's action went against Zahid's earlier press statement released on Jan 12 where he stated that Umno would comply with the Emergency proclamation by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah under Article 150 of the Federal Constitution.

"If you have junjung titah (complied) and that was the party's decision, why would you go against the president's official statement," he said in his letter on Tuesday (Jan 19).

Annuar also called Ahmad's letter a violation of organisational ethics, which could be construed as treachery to the King.

He also claimed the letter was evidence that Umno was working with PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and DAP, who had requested MPs to do the same.

"I would like you to retract your letter and I disagree with his unconstitutional action that goes against the party's supreme council's policies and decisions," he said.
