Members of the media then congregated at party headquarters here to await news but no Umno bigwigs were seen.

As at 5.20pm, no VIPs had arrived here.

It is learnt that a supreme council meeting will be held on Friday and among the matters to be discussed is Khairy's membership.

Previously, Khairy had openly stated his aim of cleaning up the party if he won the Sungai Buloh parliamentary seat in GE15.

He also alleged that there was a conspiracy by some delegates to "bulldoze" through a no-contest motion at the recent general assembly so the top two posts would not be contested at the upcoming party polls.
