KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 14 — Bersatu deputy president Datuk Seri Ahmad Faizal Azumu said a meeting at Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s residence this afternoon was a party management meeting.
Faizal, who was just appointed as the prime minister’s special adviser last week, stopped to speak to the media who were waiting at the entrance to the residence in Bukit Damansara at 5.45pm today.
“It is nothing. Statements will be issued by the party.
“I am going to buy pisang goreng and then go home,” he told reporters when asked about the meeting.
Other than Faizal, Bersatu Women chief Datuk Seri Rina Harun and Bersatu Youth chief Wan Ahmad Fayhsal Wan Ahmad Kamal as well as Bersatu Supreme Council members Datuk Seri Azmin Ali, Datuk Seri Redzuan Md Yusof and Datuk Seri Ikmal Hisham Abdul Aziz were also spotted entering the property earlier this afternoon ahead of the meeting.
The meeting was held as rumours swirled that Muhyiddin was set to meet ministers, deputy ministers and other Perikatan Nasional (PN) leaders.
The attendees began to arrive at Muhyiddin’s residence from 3.45pm and left at about 5.40pm.
Only Redzuan who arrived at 5.15pm has yet to leave the property at the time of writing.
However, at 6.40pm, MIC deputy president Datuk Seri M. Saravanan was seen exiting the residence.
He was followed by Bersatu member Datuk Seri Edmund Santhara shortly thereafter.
Both men did not stop to answer questions from the media.
Redzuan was seen departing the residence at 7.10pm but he declined to disclose the contents of the meeting to the media.
“It’s nothing,” he said from his car before driving away.
