KJ: Umno belongs to all of its members, not just the supreme council

PETALING JAYA: Having views that are different from the leadership and seeking a democratic process does not mean disloyalty to the party, says Khairy Jamaluddin (pic) ahead of the decision on his fate in Umno.

"Umno belongs to all its members. Not just the supreme council," the former health minister said in a cryptic Facebook story.

His party membership could be hanging in the balance due to his recent claims that "imported delegates" were "brought in" at the recent Umno general assembly to manipulate the voting.

The assembly voted that there would be no contest for the party’s two top posts at the upcoming party polls.

Khairy faces disciplinary action at the Umno supreme council meeting on Friday (Jan 27).

However, the former party Youth leader said on Thursday (Jan 26) that he was ready to face any action, including being sacked.

He said he would not be surprised if the supreme council decided to take stern action against him, citing the party’s history of not following due process.

"It has happened before. It happened to Tan Sri Annuar Musa, who was sacked without due process.

"We have a disciplinary board, and there is a process that needs to be followed where a person is called to attend the disciplinary hearing," he said.

Umno’s supreme council is set to meet on Friday night.
