“When is it going to be? The president and I will decide, but believe me, it will be soon. Let’s discuss it fast, president. (looking in the direction of Ahmad Zahid). I hear clearly; the Top 5 (of UMNO) are all here. InsyaAllah (God willing) we will meet soon to discuss,” he said.

Also present at the event were BN deputy chairman and UMNO deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong and MIC president Tan Sri S A Vigneswaran.  –BERNAMA
