KJ: UMNO is still there!
And why are you so afraid of debating me?
On another note, take a look at what I wrote yesterday:
Not many are aware, that Zahid conned the (supreme) council into thinking that some 70 or so Members of Parliament (MPs) from PKR, PAS, Warisan, Sabah and Sarawak agreed to forge a unity alliance with UMNO.
The council actually believes this to be true and is convinced that Zahid has the capacity to steer UMNO towards leading the next Government of Malaysia.
Many of its members fear that any action against Nazri (Aziz) would stand to “offend Anwar” and jeopardise Zahid’s “unity plan.”
Perhaps that explains why the council has suddenly adopted “a policy of extreme tolerance” and refuses to call Nazri in for questioning.
Now, we’re talking the same supreme council that sacked Muhyiddin from UMNO in 2016 for a number of reasons, primary among them being his decision to share a stage with (then) opposition leaders when criticising Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak.
The council referred to the act as a serious breach of party discipline and showed no mercy to Muhyiddin.
It follows, that UMNO is dead against any of its leaders consorting with members of opponent parties if the act serves to the detriment of UMNO, or conversely, the benefit of those parties.
Only a fool wouldn’t be able to see how Nazri’s act of supporting Anwar during the Port Dickson by-election stood to benefit PKR.
So why has the council yet to sack him?
How can you not have anything to say about a council that is willing to breach party ethics just to keep Nazri on its roll?
Is it not obvious that the council is bending rules simply because the majority of its power-crazed members actually believe that Zahid has the capacity to steer UMNO towards leading the next Government of Malaysia through the backdoor?
KUALA LUMPUR: ‘Umno is still here and it’s the best party.’
That was the answer by former Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin when asked to comment on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s statement yesterday that the party he once knew was no longer there.
“Umno is still here. Maybe what Dr Mahathir means is that Umno has become weaker, but the truth is we are in the process of rebuilding the party. Give us a chance.
“We are still relevant and we have about 50 MPs. Where the members are concerned, we do not have any branches or divisions that had left the party.
“The party is still intact,” he said when met at the Parliament’s lobby today.
Yesterday in a talk ‘Bicara Minda’ organised by Sinar Harian at the Karangkraf Building, Dr Mahathir in his reply to question if he still loved Umno, said the party he once knew was no longer there.
“Umno is no longer there. The party’s struggle in fighting for the race, religion and country is no longer there,” said Mahathir who was former Umno president for 22 years.
Meanwhile, Khairy when asked on whether the party’s president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who is facing trials for alleged corruption charges should go on leave, said it was best to leave the matter to Umno Supreme Council.
“It is for the council to decide on what’s best for the party. I am not part of the council and I should reserve my comment,” he said.
Asked further on calls by former MCA chairman Tan Sri Chua Soi Lek for the party to go on its own and become a more multiracial party, Khairy was unperturbed.
“I am not going to comment on Chua’s statement when he did not event contest for the presidential post.
“I have discussed with the party’s deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong, who is the only MCA MP, on the matter.
“He has given his commitment to Barisan Nasional.”
Chua recently said that BN component parties should break away from the coalition and that MCA should move on its own.
