Sorry to disappoint...no resignation. But Ahmad Said has been endorsed as Terengganu Mentri Besar and the Umno elections will be held in December.
The NST has the story.
The Umno supreme council has agreed to endorse Datuk Ahmad Said's palace appointment as Terengganu Mentri Besar, ending the crisis which had set up a confrontation with the state palace.
The meeting, which ended at 7.30pm, also shot down a proposal to defer party elections to next year by agreeing to a Dec 16-20 date, coinciding with the party's annual general assembly.
Party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who chaired the meeting, made the announcement at a Press conference.
Idris, who also took part in the meeting, had been directed to accept the endorsement, he said.
The priority now was for Ahmad to put togther a State Exco line-up as soon as possible, Abdullah said, denying that decision to endorse Ahmad "humiliated"him and the party.
On Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah's proposal to hold a party extraordinary general meeting on May 11, Abdullah said the issue did not come up for discussion.
However, Razaleigh's challenge for the Umno presidency was discussed."I'm willing to accept any challenges to the presidency," Abdullah said.--The NST
