Tajuddin Rahman was sacked as an Umno supreme council member last week.
A few days after that, he held a press conference, in which he spilled the tea on some inner workings of his political party, including his disdain towards his party president, and that a number of Umno MPs had signed statutory declarations to support Anwar Ibrahim as prime minister in 2020.
BFM speaks to Dr Bridget Welsh of the University of Nottingham’s Asia Research Institute-Malaysia about Tajuddin’s rise to prominence in politics and what his recent sacking and subsequent tell-all press conference means for Umno.
