GUA MUSANG UMNO EGM TODAY - WE NEED A CHANGE


At the Gua Musang Extra-Ordinary General Meeting today which was attended by at least 3,000 UMNO members, its Chairman, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, who was once a Finance Minister, hit hard against the UMNO leadership for being uncaring, ineffective, inefficient and corrupt. Tengku Razaleigh or Ku Li as he is well-known, also criticised UMNO President and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's son-in-law, Khairy Jamaluddin for being the main cause of the defeat of UMNO and BN coalitions at the recently concluded general elections on 8 March 2008. He commented that being a Oxford or Harvard scholars does not show that they have the Malay spirit with them. He further informed that certain actions made by UMNO leaders had hurt the non-bumiputra Malaysians which should never have happen since we have lived in peace and harmony for such a long time while respected one another.

To have a change, we need to change the UMNO leadership now or face a disastrous defeat in the next polls.

The EGM was attended by 360 delegates from 116 branches in Gua Musang.

Ku Li further informed that his proposed May Extra-Ordinary General Assembly should be held so that we could discuss our weaknesses and find ways to amend them, which need to be done immediately.

Meanwhile, it was reported today that UMNO Pahang has requested the UMNO leadership to resign making way for a new and capable leadership to administer the party. The call was made by its Secretary Datuk Ahmad Tajuddin Sulaiman.

UMNO is now faced with a TSUNAMI as predicted by many.
