Pre-Election Sandiwara Has Started. Strident Call For Umno To Be "Steadfast In Defending Malay Rights"
Umno Vice- President Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said today the party leadership should not waver in its struggle to defend Malay rights.***** This is just the beginning. The real fireworks starts when the big boys enter the fray closer to election time. Then the crazies get to spit their ounce of venom. Semuanya OK!
"Umno will feel humiliated if it can't preserve the rights or is unable to develop the economy of the Malays, including through government aid and subsidies," he said. Muhyiddin was opening the Kubang Pasu Umno delegates' conference here.
In SHAH ALAM, Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid said Umno's efforts to bridge the gap between the nobility and the common man had created the Malay middle class and that Shah Alam was a symbol of the success of this group of people.
Opening the Shah Alam Umno delegates conference, he also said that Umno had to be strengthened in view of this growing middle class, with many relocating from the rural areas to the cities.
In KOTA KINABALU, Umno Information Chief Senator Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib opened the Sepanggar Umno Youth delegates meeting and called on party members to remain united and avert disputes.
He said Umno had remained in power because it did not waver from its objectives to champion the rights of the people and uphold national sovereignty.
In PENANG, Umno Youth Deputy Chief Khairy Jamaluddin said it would not be impossible for the Barisan Nasional (BN) to recapture opposition-held seats in Penang in the next general election.
Acknowledging that there were several opposition strongholds in the state, he said it was all the more necessary for the BN to work hard to win these seats.
"The whole of Penang will surely be the focus of the opposition parties (in the next general election) and we will ensure that they have no place in this state," he said when opening the Bayan Baru Umno Youth delegates meeting.
In PAPAR (Sabah), Puteri Umno vice-head Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin called on women to be more aggressively involved in all fields to make more meaningful contributions to the economy and national development. She said the role of women was not negligible because they were in all sectors and 55 per cent of the electorate comprised women.
There was no longer any discrimination against women in the country, she said when addressing the Papar Puteri Umno delegates meeting.
