Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he knew of a clandestine meeting between Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and Barisan Nasional (BN) lawmakers last night but not what they discussed.
“Ya, I heard about it. I don’t know what they talked about,” he told reporters during a press conference today.
Met by reporters in parliament, Home Minister Muhyiddin Yassin also said he was unaware of the meeting beyond what had been reported by the media.
“I don’t know. I only read news that you all reported. So, I don’t know the real story,” said the Bersatu president.
PKR advisory council chairman Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said Azmin should attend party meetings instead of holding gatherings with opposition MPs.
She said PKR’s political bureau will discuss the meeting Azmin hosted at his residence in Putrajaya last night.
“It would be good if he goes to the meeting, the (PKR) political bureau meeting,” Wan Azizah told reporters in the Parliament lobby.
Azmin has not been attending PKR leadership meetings for about a year, despite public reminders by party colleagues.
PKR communications director Fahmi Fadzil said he was aware of the meeting at Azmin’s house only from news reports and that the party had yet to receive any information on it.
The political bureau will meet tomorrow to discuss the meeting, he said.
“I believe when the political bureau (meeting) is held tomorrow, we will definitely discuss this matter,” Fahmi told reporters in Parliament.
“It is my hope that all leaders will be present for us to get full details of what is happening.”
