KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 9 — Umno have confirmed the sacking of Ketereh division chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa, Arau MP Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, his wife Datuk Seri Shamsiah Yasin and Umno Maran women’s chief Datin Seri Fatimah Kassim.
Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan said the terminations were in line with the party’s constitution and were decided yesterday night during an Umno supreme council meeting.
“Their termination is effective immediately after we sent the official letters to them today,” Ahmad Maslan was quoted saying by Berita Harian.
Earlier today Annuar Musa posted a cryptic message on Facebook hinting at his dismissal.
Shahidan defected to Perikatan Nasional (PN) after he was dropped from the Barisan Nasional GE15 ticket while Fatimah, who is the wife of Maran MP Datuk Seri Ismail Abd Muttalib, defected to PAS and defended their respective seats with the PN coalition.
