Its just been announced that UMNO Youth Exco in-charge of International Affairs Dato’ Mukhriz Mahathir would be given the P5 Jerlun parliamentary constituency to contest as the Barisan Nasional candidate, this XII General Elections on 8 March 2008.

This announcement was made by Kedah Menteri Besar Dato’ Seri Mahadzir Khalid a moment ago in Alor Star. Mahadzir is also the Kedah BN Liaison Chief.

This quashed amidst strong speculations, including contradictory statements in the media that Mukhriz would be contesting in Langkawi parliamentary seat. Dato’ Abu Bakar Taib, the incumbent MP will contest for his fourth term in the island resort.

In March 2004 XI General Elections, Dato’ Abdul Rahman Ariffin of BN defeated Idris Ahmad of PAS for a 2,142 majority, in the 44,148 voters rural constituency. Rahman was a first term MP for Jerlun and also UMNO Jerlun Head.

  1. Congrats Dato Mukhriz,

    Hero hadapi cabaran
    Akhirnya dapat terus perjuangan
    Buat landasan
    Bela nusa bangsa demi kemajuan

    Jom terjun
    Di Jerlun
    Calun PAS kita balun
    Jadi wakil ke parlimun

    Lepas tu ada lagi nak teruskan
    Demi untuk selamatkan
    Dari terhumban ke jahanam
    Sejarah Melayu tak hilang dalam lipatan

    Not too corny to say, hidup Islam Hadhari
    Cemerlang Gemilang Terbilang (ini ori punya)

  2. Congratulations to Dato’ Mukhriz! We need a new breed of leaders who have the rakyat at heart.

  3. Tahniah Dato Mukhriz, semua doa untuk kejayaan Dato.

  4. TIDAK MUDAH !

    Tahniah mukhriz dicalonkan
    Kawasan P5 Jerlun letakkan
    Ikhlaskah mukhriz namakan
    Karpet berduri dibentangkan

    Jangan karpet baldu dimimpi
    Khas buat rakan terlingkungi
    Mukhriz laluilah laluan izini
    Pengundi Jerlun wajar restui

    Langkawi bagai karpet baldu
    Hadiah buat penama tertentu
    Hadiah habuan tolong bantu
    Sudah terang masih dilampu

    Karpet baldu jika tidak jaga
    Terkhuatiri banyaklah hama
    Yang berduri, lembut jadinya
    Jika betul servis dan perguna

    Apapun sebab telah calonkan
    Pengalaman 11kaliPRU gunakan
    Tiada pengundi boleh sisihkan
    Setiap undian akan hitungkan

  6. AKHIRANNYA….!

    Karpet baldu dan karpet berduri
    Di karpet baldu KJ selesa jejaki
    Mudah benar dianugerah razeki
    Tuah KJ menantu pak lah kasihi

    Dari firdaus, karpet baldu warisi
    Bertambah tebalkah baldu nanti
    Adakah kemasukan hama terjadi
    Karpet baldu jangan buat berduri

    Ruang dan peluang KJ manfaati
    Kerana mertua, pemuda dikuasai
    Di Rembau teruskan visi & misi
    Senyum anwar disurukkan gigi

    Jika lawannya PKR sahkan nanti
    Tepati 99 peratus si anwar hajati
    Sapa menang, anwarlah menangi
    Tambahan pada formula maklumi

    -Inilah dikatakan huruhara terpaksa UMNO bebani kerana jaga satu KJ gelojoh ini.

  9. Congratulations to Dato’ Mukhriz on being confirmed the P5 Jerlun seat. No matter, whether it’s Langkawi or Jerlun, God Willing, he shall win it.

    My political leanings are left-of-center (some even say extreme left) which have been genetically hard-wired I think 🙂 but DM is one person I have long admired. This out of character for me but I really do mean to wish him well because he’s not cut from the same cloth of the present UMNO “type”. Being an old boy of another “rival” boarding school, we admired his organizational skills for Ansara, which was more successful than ours BTW, and lamented that we have no one of that caliber to lift our OBA out of the funk. I know I’m gonna get a lot of shit for saying that, but it’s true.

    I think for UMNO if the they wish to be relevant in the years ahead should embrace DM today. UMNO better realize that it is the likes of DM that will save the party. And I’m saying this as an “oppo” member.
