No politics, this is for flood matters only, says Zahid at Johor presser

MERSING: Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is keeping mum over political developments in the party.

When asked to comment on politics at a press conference here, the Deputy Prime Minister said he would only be entertaining flood-related questions.

"This is a press conference on flood matters only," he said, declining to take any more questions.

He was speaking at a press conference after visiting flood victims at a temporary flood centre at Politeknik Mersing here on Saturday (Jan 28).

At a late night meeting on Friday (Jan 27), the Umno supreme council sacked former Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin and supreme council member Tan Sri Noh Omar.

Sembrong MP Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein as well as former Umno information chief Shahril Hamdan, former Youth exco member Datuk Dr Fathul Bari Mat Jahya, former Johor state exco member and Tebrau Umno chief Datuk Maulizan Bujang and former Jempol MP Datuk Seri Mohd Salim Mohd Shariff were also suspended for six years.
