Ku Li is free to do what he likes - Muhyiddin

Veteran Umno leader Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah is free to do what he likes as long as it is not against the party's constitution, says its vice-president, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Going against several party leaders' disapproval (read here and here ), Tan Sri Muhyiddin does not foresee any problems on holding a party extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on May 11.

"As a member of the Umno Supreme Council, I believe in the party constitution . He is free to do what he likes as long as it is not against the constitution," he was quoted as saying to Bernama.

Muhyiddin, who succeeeded the iron lady, Wanita Chief Rafidah Aziz, as International Trade and Industry Minister, was commenting on the call by Tengku Razaleigh, the Gua Musang MP, for an EGM to discuss the party's terrible performance in the general election and his plan to contest the Umno presidency at the coming general assembly.

"It's up to Ku Li (Tengku Razaleigh), he said. But advised members that whatever action taken will not weaken the party. "

"If it can strengthen the party, then we cannot prevent it," he said
