ALOR SETAR: Facing a revolt from within his own party ranks, today Kedah MB Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir reassured Najib’s loyalists he could regain their confidence for the next election.
“The MB as agreed to give his full support to PM Najib Razak in the strongest possible terms Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.” said a Kedah UMNO party strategist.
“On other days of the week, Mukhriz will scheme with his father to topple the PM which we believe solves this state leadership crisis. Kedah UMNO Party members will keep to the MB’s loyalty schedule to ensure GE14 party machinery runs smoothly.”
However, some UMNO supporters were quick to criticize the MB’s loyalty roster, “If Mukhriz supports the PM 3 days a week, then tries to oust him with his father the remaining 4 days out of 7, it could be interpreted as favoring Dr M more than our nation’s leader!”
“Mukhriz should support both men half a day each on Sundays to make it even!”
