Such meetings should not be conducted in homes in the middle of the night, as they will result in speculation.
Former prime minister Najib Razak has come out in support of calls to investigate Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs who had reportedly attended a dinner-meeting at PKR deputy president Mohamed Azmin Ali’s official residence yesterday evening.
He added that any gathering – for projects, for example – should be conducted in an office and must be made known to the opposition leader.
Najib said such meetings should not be conducted in homes in the middle of the night, as they will result in speculation.
Earlier, Umno’s disciplinary board chief Mohamed Apandi Ali said the board would investigate any complaints relating to the MPs who attended the meeting last night with the economic affairs minister.
Apandi also pledged immediate action based on existing procedures.
Najib told reporters at the parliament lobby today: “We should not have been involved. As the Opposition party, our responsibility must focus on the public. We must be seen as a party that gives the alternative narrative for the country.
“On what happened last night, it should be investigated by the disciplinary committee. As announced by the party president, any decision made by the party will be done for the sake of the party’s solidarity and party discipline.
“And any action that we do must be party-based. This is a question of the party. We must have the spirit of the party.”
