UMNO Youth Chief wants to grill Ezam

Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein wants to meet former PKR chief Mohamad Ezam Mohd Nor to clarify questions he has on Mohamad Ezam's application to rejoin Umno.


Hishammuddin said he was concerned about Mohamad Ezam's role in Umno, his sincerity in joining the party and the benefits the party would get from admitting the former political secretary of PKR's de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

He said,"Despite Anwar's claims that many people from BN will jump ship, we see that it is his people who are joining us. This is a benefit to us but I want to see him (Mohamad Ezam) to discuss some issues."

He also wanted to leverage on Mohamad Ezam's experience in the anti-corruption non-governmental organisation Gerak, and see how Mohamad Ezam could help the party tackle corruption.

As to Mohamad Ezam's role in the wing, Hishammuddin said it would be decided by members. -
