They might sack me, says Isham Jalil

SUPREME Council member Isham Jalil believes his name is on an expulsion list for criticising the party’s electoral cooperation with Pakatan Harapan (PH).

He said his views against working with PH, especially its DAP component, was well known but denied that he told grassroots supporters not to vote for the candidate fielded by its former nemesis-turned-ally in the Johor twin by-elections last Saturday.

“I heard this week that a few more Umno members will be sacked in the next party meeting. There are rumours that my name might even be on the list.

“Well, it is up to the party’s leadership and the supreme council if they want to sack me,” he said.

The Council meets tonight.
