KUALA LUMPUR – Tan Sri Annuar Musa has been sacked from his position as the Secretary-General of Barisan Nasional (BN).
The decision was announced by the Chairman of BN and President of UMNO, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan will take over the position of Annuar with immediate effect.
Ahmad Zahid announced the decision in a special meeting with the UMNO Division Leaders nationwide at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) which began at 11.00 am today.
Earlier, Annuar stated his readiness to be sacked from the party and questioned the actions UMNO would take on its leaders who had negotiated with opposition leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and DAP.
Annuar’s dismissal came after he was seen to be championing for UMNO to continue cooperating with Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia in the Perikatan Nasional government while majority of UMNO’s division were against the move. – MalaysiaGazette
