The Umno ministers’ meeting at the Putrajaya hotel was only a catch-up over breakfast yesterday

Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin stated today that Umno ministers gathered at a hotel in Putrajaya yesterday morning for breakfast since they hadn’t broken bread in a long time.

He went on to say that the gathering was not intended to discuss dissolving Parliament.

His remarks came after Utusan Malaysia reported on the meeting earlier in the day, claiming that it had raised many eyebrows.

Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican, a member of the Umno supreme council, paid for the brunch. It had nothing to do with Parliament’s dissolution.

They just hadn’t seen each other in a long time, so they wanted to catch up, according to Khairy, who is also the Umno MP for Rembau, at a news conference following a business visit to the Malaysian Red Crescent.

Umno ministers and deputy ministers convened at a hotel in Putrajaya, according to Utusan Malaysia, with some coming as early as 8.45 a.m.

Among those spotted were Khairy himself, Reezal, Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa, Federal Territories Minister Datuk Shahidan Kassim, National Unity Minister Datuk Halimah Sadique, Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Minister Tan Sri Noh Omar and Higher Education Minister Datuk Seri Noraini Ahmad.
