NOT TRUE - Johor Umno to ask PM to step down, says Shahrir

Johor Baru Umno chief Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad refuted reports that Johor Umno has approved a resolution calling for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to step down.

According to him, there was no resolution made at the state Umno meeting recently.

"The meeting did not pass any resolution or take any decision to be conveyed to the Umno president. Those present shared the views and on my part, I stated that rehabilitating Umno should be the main priority," he said in PutraJaya here Wednesday.

He was responding to a news report (read here and here) which said Johor Umno would ask the prime minister to step down in a way that would not humiliate him.

Asked whether support from Johor Umno for the prime minister was still strong, Shahrir said:

"If you ask my opinion, I think it is still strong."

According to Shahrir, no decisions were announced during the state Umno meeting earlier.
