Umno meeting to discuss manifesto, says Khaled Nordin

KUALA LUMPUR: The Umno meeting on Thursday (Oct 6) night will be to discuss the party's manifesto for the 15th General Election (GE15), says Datuk Seri Mohammed Khaled Nordin.

When asked if there was any good news following Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob’s audience with the King earlier Thursday, the Umno vice-president said he was unsure.

“The Top Five are not meeting yet, we are having another meeting... (about the) manifesto,” he said when speaking to the media briefly at Menara Dato’ Onn here on Thursday.

Also seen as at 8.15pm were Umno supreme council member Ahmad Shabery Cheek, former PAS central committee member and Kuala Nerus MP Datuk Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali and Federal Territory Umno liaison chairman Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani.

Umno supreme council member Dautk Seri Dr Shamsul Anuar Nasarah, who is also Lenggong MP, was also spotted arriving for the meeting.

Umno's "top five" refers to president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, and three vice-presidents – Ismail Sabri, Khaled and Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid.

Ismail Sabri was reportedly rushed to the party’s headquarters after meeting Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah at Istana Negara on Thursday.

However, the results of the party meeting are unclear as at press time.
