The Umno supreme council meeting slated for this Friday has been cancelled, according to a circular sighted by Malaysiakini.

The circular, inked by secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, did not state any reason for the cancellation.

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had dropped party number two Muhyiddin Yassin as deputy prime minister.
