Emergency meeting might be called, says Umno supreme council member
The Umno supreme council member told The Star Online that the party won’t tolerate enemies within the party.
"We can't tolerate all this nonsense and we certainly do not want to have an enemy within the party," he said.
He added that party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak might call for an emergency meeting soon to discuss the matter.
"We usually have a meeting once every month, but I believe this calls for an emergency meeting.
"We need to do something about this, because if you want to be with us, you work with us and support us. It's very bad otherwise," he added.
He said the actions of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal in signing the declaration to 'Save Malaysia' was an embarrassment to the party.
"We were humiliated by the actions of the suspended party deputy president and vice president.
"They forgot that these were the main enemies and now they are sitting together with them to sign this declaration," said Hasan.
On Friday, Muhyiddin, Shafie and 50 others including Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Lim Kit Siang signed a declaration to forcefully remove Datuk Seri Najib Tub Razak as Prime Minister.
Last week, Muhyiddin was suspended as the party's deputy president for allegedly not assisting his president while Shafie was let off with a warning.

Mahathir, Opposition sign declaration calling for repeal of laws
DESIDERATA: This historic event reminds us that:~
1. POLITICS is defined as THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE;
2. The following credo rings loud and true:~
IN politics, there are no permanent enemies or permanent friends, only PERMANENT INTERESTS.
IN this case, arch enemies going back some 3 to 4 decades like Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang suddenly find themselves motivated by a common interest -- that is to TOPPLE NAJIB AS PM.
3. It also reinforces the credo that "IN politics, my enemy's enemy is (now) my friend."
4. Desi will elaborate more after he cometh back from an essential REVERIE, because momentous events require energetic writHing, and this taxes the body, spirits and soul, So I must rest!
