KUALA LUMPUR – The Member of Parliament (MP) of Sembrong, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein denied that he had led the meeting between the Minister of Economic Affairs Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali and 22 MPs from Barisan Nasional last night.
“The accusation that I had led the meeting between Azmin Ali and the Members of Parliament from the opposition bloc last night was not true,” he twitted today.
Hishammuddin who is also the former Vice-President of UMNO also denied the allegations that he planned the meeting.
He also said that he is ready to be investigated by the UMNO Disciplinary Board if the party wishes to take the action.
“However, if the UMNO disciplinary board would like to investigate me, I am ready to be investigated. I have nothing to hide,” he said.
The former Minister of Defence answered the accusation from the UMNO Supreme Council Member, Datuk Lokman Noor Adam, who said that Hishammuddin has once again betrayed Malaysians, especially the voters in Tanjung Piai.
Yesterday night, a total of 22 MPs from BN were present at the official residence of Azmin in Putrajaya. Among those seen were the MP of Cameron Highlands, Ramli Mohd Noor and Datuk Seri Ismail Abdul Mutalib from Maran. -MalaysiaGazette
