KUALA LUMPUR: Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said that disgraced former prime minister Najib Razak’s appointment as the new Barisan Nasional advisory board chairman possibly marks the return of “warlords”.
“Maybe, the warlords are emerging”, as he told the reporters at the Parliament lobby when asked to comment on Najib’s surprising appointment.
Ku Li, who is also Gua Musang MP, did not hide his shock or surprise over this development.
On whether the Najib’s appointment would help restore UMNO to it’s glory, Razaleigh said everybody would have to do their part to revive UMNO.
Ku Li also expressed his confidence that Najib would not be a liability despite all the court charges he is currently facing. Ku Li added that such problems were not unique to UMNO alone and that other parties also faced similar problems.
