PUTRAJAYA: Stability cannot be used as a reason for any party to support that the positions of President and Deputy President of UMNO not be contested in the next party election.
Alor Setar Division UMNO leader, Datuk Mohd. Yusof Ismail said, if these two positions are not contested, UMNO will suffer greater harm which will not only cause party members to lose faith, but the people will also turn away from UMNO.
According to him, the reason for stability can no longer be used to restrict democracy since the same reason was used before GE15 for the party’s victory, but the opposite happened when the party lost badly.
“Now you want to block democracy with the excuse of stability again? Only those who are power-crazed and greedy for position and interests are shameless in using this kind of supposedly holy excuse. Millions more UMNO members know their agenda very well.
“Where are we willing to look? UMNO remains respected by its own members even though a few will bark because they have lost power, or will UMNO be buried by the people forever?” he said in a statement through his Facebook.
He said, the closer the special UMNO General Assembly gets, the more opinions there are supporting and opposing that the positions of President and Deputy be contested.
He said, those who want the election to be held have their own reasons, and those who refuse have certain interests and reasons.
“Those who do not want the election have various reasons. Wala’ to the leader, loyal to the President. Most nauseating, want to ensure stability to face the next State Election (PRN).
“The same reason before GE15. It is said to make sure the party is strong and wins. What is winning? Lose badly again. Worst in history. 26 seats only compared to 54 seats in GE14.
“At least, before GE15 UMNO took control of the government. UMNO Prime Minister. Going to insist that GE15 be held for reasons of stability, it is already a mess,” he said. – MESSENGER
