Mukhriz makes sudden u-turn - Pak Lah

Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir has made a ‘sudden reversal’ on his earlier stand regarding his leadership, said Datuk Abdullah Badawi.

The Prime Minister and Umno President was commenting on the letter sent by Mukhriz, who is Umno Youth Exco member, asking on the him to step down in the wake of Barisan Nasional’s poor performance in the March 8 polls.

"One day before he sent me the letter, he issued a statement saying he supports and he understands what happened was a ‘collective responsibility’ and other statements (were made by him) which appeared to be positive statements about me.

"Suddenly he changes ... just one day later, he sends a letter not only to me, but to (deputy premier) Najib (Abdul Razak) and the whole country," he was quoted as saying by Bernama.

"To me, this is not the right approach. This is a reaction from him as a member of Umno Youth which has already decided to support me and the party leadership.

Abdullah said that he will leave it to Umno Youth and its chief Datuk Hishammuddin Hussein to act on the matter.

Meanwhile, Hishamuddin said the letter did not reflect the movement’s stand adding that Umno Youth is still committed to its earlier pledge to support Abdullah and Najib.

"If the call on the prime minister was made in his personal capacity, then I personally feel that the manner in which it was done and the timing are inappropriate, " he was quoted as saying by Bernama.

Sebenarnya, PM Abdullah membuat kenyataan berdasarkan laporan media yang telah di’putar-belit’kan (spin), oleh pihak pihak tertentu.

Mukhriz adalah konsisten dengan kenyataan yang dibuat di Seberang Perai pada Isnin, 10 Mac 2008, iatu “Merayu agar Kepimpinan mendengar ‘mesej jelas’ rakyat” dan“Yakin Kepimpinan akan membuat ‘keputusan terbaik’ untuk mengembalikan keyakinan dan sokongan rakyat kepada BN dan UMNO”.

Yes I think this nyanyuk PM is responding to a statement which the mainstream media has spinned.

Go read Rocky's entry here:

Bernama's headline is, "Mukhriz says he's all for Abdullah"

Mukhriz's actual quotes:
"I have confidence that the Prime Minister will do the right thing".

Two different kinds of confidence, really.

Pak Lah nak tegur Mukhriz sebab statement yg tak konsisiten ke? Dia lupa kot yg dia sendiri macam tu.... ingat tak masa dia umumkan tarikh bubar parlimen kelmarin?

But that's beside the point. Asking Hishamuddin to deal with the matter shows that he his spineless. This is not an UMNO Youth issue, it's Mukhriz's personal stand. Come on la Pak Lah... face it like a man!

kenapa pak lah masih memekakkan telinga and only want to hear good news from his stupid advisers? Still many apple polishers wanting to kiss his hands.

Ayoh budaya membodek masih tebal dikalangan orang UMNO. Masih dibuai mimpi setelah kekalahan teruk ditangan pembangkang. Masih buta.

Whne they gonna wake up and take action like Mukhriz, seorang yang berani untuk menyatakan yang perlu dikatakan dan tak takut mengambil risiko.

I posted the comment earlier to the wrong thread.

Why is Pak Lah asking that pondan Hisham-kerismuddin to deal with Mukhriz?

What does he expect Hishamuddin to do? Bagi warning? Expel Mukhriz from Umno?

Why? Pak Lah has no balls to deal with Mukhriz?

Dah lah Pak Lah, you just cant deal with it. Depa dok cium tangan hang tapi deep inside you know jolly well that they agree with Mukhriz.

Cuma depa tak dah teloq, like you!

It was Sabah & Sawarak who delivered the votes to you. Kalau tak keghana depa hang dah hanyut pi ke Laut India!

Ini si pondan tu dah issue statement kononnya seorang pahlawan yang mempertahankan Pemimpinnya (Pak Lah) yang tidak lama lagi akan ditumbangkan.

Chitt! Ptuiiii!

KUALA LUMPUR, March 15 (Bernama) -- Action against Umno Youth exco member Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir for asking Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to step down to assume full responsibility for Barisan Nasional's (BN) dismal showing in the March 8 general will be decided at the movement's executive committee meeting to be held soon.

Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said action would be taken against the newly-elected Jerlun member of parliament in accordance with the party rules.

"I will not run away from my entrusted responsibilities as long as I am the Umno Youth head. I will shoulder the trust and confidence placed in me with full commitment to the movement.

"I consider Mukhriz's action as irresponsible. Umno youth will take appropriate action as provided for under the party rules. We'll wait for the Umno Youth exco meeting to be convened after the announcement on the new cabinet line-up," he told reporters.

The prime minister said yesterday he left it to Umno Youth to take action against Mukhriz for asking him to resign.

Abdullah had said he was leaving it to Hishammudin to take appropriate action against Mukhriz...
