Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak expressed regret and pain over actions by the former UMNO leader Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal upon the latter’s exit from the party.
He said if it was not for him, Datuk Seri Shafie’s political career would not have risen until he became one of UMNO’s vice-presidents.
(Soundbite of Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak / Prime Minister
The party is more important and leaders are not strong without the party. I don’t care if he forget my deeds.)
