Melaka Umno liaison committee chairman Ab Rauf Yusoh has denied rumours of an impending change of party leadership in the state.
The Tanjung Bidara assemblyman said there were currently no issues related to the state Umno leadership.
“No issue. Up until today, the party is in its best condition,” he said when met by reporters at the Melaka Umno liaison body open house at his residence in Kampung Pulau, Masjid Tanah, last night.
Yang Dipertua Negeri Melaka Mohd Ali Rustam and Umno vice-president and Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob also attended the event.
Rauf, who is also the state’s investment, industry, entrepreneur development and cooperatives committee chairman, described the rumours as part of the test of the political world.
“I don’t consider that (rumour) as a threat to the position of Umno in the state. Everyone can express their feelings,” he added.
