    UMNO sacks, suspends former ministers

    ANN/THE STRAITS TIMES – Malaysia’s former health minister Khairy Jamaluddin has been sacked from United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) for “violating party discipline”, while former defence minister Hishammuddin Hussein has been suspended, the party announced on Friday.

    Hishammuddin, a former party vice-president, and former UMNO information chief Shahril Hamdan were among a handful of members suspended for six years, said UMNO Secretary-General Ahmad Maslan after a supreme council meeting in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.

    “Tonight I was sacked by the party I love, to which I showed allegiance. Unbowed, unbent, unbroken,” Khairy tweeted after the decision.
