Wary Rafidah Says Ex-Puteri Leaders May 'Weaken Umno' By Contesting Top Posts In Wanita

Former Puteri Umno leaders' intention to vie for top posts in Wanita Umno may weaken the women's wing and Umno, said Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz.

She said should there be contests, it could cause upheaval and splits in wing and eventually weaken the party.

"Do not be overzealous in vying for top posts in Wanita Umno because when we have two or three people contesting (a post), we will have two or three factions and this will cause problems.

"Wanita (Umno) is the backbone of the party and if we are saddled with problems, the party will eventually bear the brunt," she told reporters after holding a closed-door meeting with Kedah Umno Wanita division heads at Ampang Jajar here Saturday.

However, Rafidah welcomed ex-Puteri members who had ceased to become members of junior wing who had passed the age-limit to be a member in it to apply for Wanita Umno membership.

"However, let me remind you that once you are accepted, do not be impatient by vying for top posts," she said, adding that they should start by contesting committee member posts.

"I am proposing that Wanita division heads enlist ex-Puteri members who are contemplating contesting become additional committee members. "At least we can get the input from these youths who can assist us in reaching out to the younger generation.

"Some ex-Puteri members held important posts in the movement and this is the reason why they also want positions in Wanita," she said. (Bernama)

***** Is Rafidah's real fear Umno would be weakened or could she be apprehensive that some of the senior makcik2 would be given the boot in party elections if the young 'uns challenge them?
