THE decision to sack Isham Jalil was made by the Supreme Council, said party president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
He said the decision was made following his actions which were deemed to be a threat to the party.
“Party members should utilise the appropriate and established avenues when conveying their views or dissatisfaction on any internal matter.
“The Disciplinary Board had reviewed his case and brought during the Supreme Council meeting,” he said.
Earlier, the media reported that during the Umno Supreme Council meeting on December 6, a consensus was reached to expel Isham. This decision was purportedly influenced by his criticism of the party, perceived as divergent from Umno’s stance aimed at strengthening the unity government.
