Finally, a consensus decision from all UMNO supreme members to put an end to Muhyiddin and Mukhriz membership in UMNO thus both are partyless and automatically they are with immediate effect independent. This long exhaustive period is however welcomed by UMNO members and in particular from the grassroots.
There will be certain quarters especially from the 2Ms (Muhyidddin and Mukhriz) supporters would find it unacceptable and accuse the decision as unjust. No matter what will be their arguments, it is an unanimous decision. These decision makers comprises of 54 elected supreme council member excluding Muhyiddin and Shafie Afdal. These are the leaders who are democratically elected in the previous party election by party members all over Malaysia.
To most it is not only reasonable to sack the 2Ms and it is also timely. Both Muhyidddin and Mukhriz are actively and passionately involved with the opposition pact in demonstrating their move against PM Najib Razak who is also the UMNO President. They appeared several times on the opposition stage publicly to have their roadtours with a clear intention to oust the majority elected Prime Minister together with the oppositions.
That is what the actual message meant when the 2MS breached UMNO disciplinary procedures and thus violated party rules. No right minded party member from any political party would agree to what the 2Ms had done. Collaborating with the rivals to oust your own President is not only unacceptable but it is immoral too and what more if it is with Muhyiddin holding the second highest position in UMNO as well as the government.
The 2Ms had also leveraged on UMNO platforms for their self benefits to go against the President. Both Muhyiddin and Mukhriz who have their says as Supreme Council members, needed to be critical and voiced their grievances, they should be doing so during the supreme council meetings and that will be more mature and honorable. Instead, they have chosen otherwise and worst, they prefers the opposition stage.
Even if politics would be equated to a soccer game, the duos are no more considered as team players when they not only refuse to work together to score goals for their team instead they would even consider to get the ball into their own goal post. For this, the best word describe for them is traitor and the most hurting and saddest feeling that every UMNO members should have is when betrayal did not come from the enemies but from within, it is thus poisonous.
It is the right thing to do and the decision to dismiss Muhyiddin and Mukhriz from UMNO and suspend Shafie Afdal’s membership is pertinent to their own actions. It took years and not decided in a hasty manner where it was done in accordance within the stipulated party rules and regulation. It will be very unfair to other party members if actions are not taken just because the duos are in their highest position.
This is also a stern reminder to all UMNO members that it is never a license to breach the principles, discipline and party rules despite your position and past contributions to the party. As far as UMNO is concerned and party members are aware that actions against the trios are without fear and favor. Boththe duos have made their choices and the supreme council members have spoken and decided cautiously, therefore the party comes first and its business is thus serious!
