Umno more eager to punish me than address leadership crisis, says Muhyiddin

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has slammed Umno's disciplinary process which saw his party membership suspended last night, saying he was never given a chance to defend himself according to procedure. Although no longer the party deputy president, Muhyiddin said he would not appeal against the suspension and warned the party leadership not to ignore the matters he had raised against its president and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak. "It is obvious the Supreme Council could not wait to suspend me. Nevertheless, I will not appeal. "The council was more interested in technical matters in the move to punish me, rather than to study the content of my speeches which have far reaching implications on Umno's future and on the country," he said in a statement on his Facebook account. Muhyiddin, who lost his number two post in the party following his membership suspension, said Umno had failed to address the leadership crisis facing the party which stemmed from Najib's involvement in 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and the RM2.6 billion political donation. He said the leadership lacked the courage to hold Najib to account over the matters which had not been adequately explained. "These scandals surrounding Najib have given a terrible image to the party, the government, and have embarrassed the people." – February 27, 2016. MORE TO COME]]>
