Advice To Stop Calling For Muhyiddin's Resignation

MELAKA, Sept 14 (Bernama) -- An Umno leader today advised party leaders and members against calling for the resignation of Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin over his suggestion for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to rethink his transition plan to step down by 2010 as the timeframe was too long.

Datuk Asa'ari Ibrahim, vice-head of the Bukit Katil Umno Division, said Muhyiddin was right in giving his opinion as an Umno vice-president in representing the grassroots.

"As an Umno vice-president and chairman of the party's committee on the constitution, Muhyiddin knows that the decision of the supreme council must be endorsed by the party divisions at their respective annual meetings," he told Bernama.

Asa'ari was commenting on the call by Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Zaid Ibrahim for Muhyiddin to resign if he was not happy with Abdullah's leadership.
