KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 23 — Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos said that tomorrow Umno division leaders will make a statement calling for the resignation of MCA president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong.
About a hundred Umno division leaders will gather at 3pm at Riverfront tomorrow, he told reporters at Menara Dato’ Onn tonight.
“So tomorrow we the division leaders of Umno will defend the position of Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi as the Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman and the president of Umno and we will ask Wee to resign, not the president of Umno,” he said.
Jamal was at the World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur for a meeting of Umno Supreme Council.
Earlier, MCA said Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi should be replaced by his deputy Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, also known as Tok Mat, as chairman to lead Barisan Nasional (BN).
Its secretary-general Datuk Chong Sin Woon said the actions of the coalition’s president Ahmad Zahid clearly contradict what was decided in the meeting with the BN Supreme Council last night.
