Johor Menteri Besar Khaled Nordin has rubbished claims that he is part of ‘Team 5M’, a group allegedly interested in contesting in the 2018 Umno party elections.
Khaled’s denial follows a report by a pro-Umno portal, which claimed that ‘Team 5M will face off against party president Najib Razak in the next Umno elections.
“I would like to vehemently deny my involvement as alleged by the portal. I have not been contacted and have not contacted anyone to run for any position,” he wrote on Facebook.
He believed that the report was an attempt by certain parties to disrupt the unity and harmony of the party.
“The opportunity to gather for the General Assembly must be used by all of us, to strengthen and prepare for GE14,” he added.
