Mukhriz: Its getting tougher for me & Jitra Umno members want a change in Kepimpinan

UMNO Youth Exco and Jerlun MP Dato’ Mukhriz Mahathir admitted this morning that his chances vying for the UMNO Youth Head post is getting tougher and slimmer. The tide is turning against him as certain UMNO leaders are believed to have been inducing the ‘decision makers’ at the Division level with ‘money politics’ practices.

“If this practice is allowed to carry on and UMNO authorities did nothing to curb this, I don’t think I will get the necessary nominations”, commenting on the minimum 39 Division nominations requirement to qualify. “Places where the support for me is strong is now shaken as ‘special attention’ was focused on these places”.

“When I first started, my confidence level of achieving my set objectives is at 60-65%. Now, I am not so sure anymore because of these reason, only a miracle can get me in”, he further added.

Despite a strict code of ethics and conduct on campaigning was issued by UMNO Supreme Council on 27 March, the practice of ‘money politics’  and rampant ‘abuse of power/position’ is thought to be more intense.

The majority of Umno Jitra branch members have nominated  MT UMNO member Datuk Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim and UMNO Vice Preisdent Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to contest the Umno president and deputy president post respectively. The members had also nominated incumbent Vice President Tan Sri Mohd Isa Abdul Samad, MT UMNO members Datuk Seri Khaled Nordin and Datuk Shafie Apdal as vice presidents.


Jitra Umno branch deputy chairman Mukhriz Mahathir said the members had exercised their democratic right to have their say on who should lead the party.


“Although nominations at branch level are not official, it reflects the grassroots’ support for certain leaders.
“If more than 50% of the branches in a division nominate certain leaders, it should be reflected in the nomination list submitted by the respective division,’’ he said.


Mukhriz, who is also the Jerlun MP, said this after the Jitra Umno branch annual general meeting at Kubang Pasu Community Development Foundation premises yesterday.


Mukhriz said he was in the process of sending letters to all the 22,000 Umno branch in the country, requesting for the list of nominees for top five Umno posts and supreme council posts.


“The data would be used to gauge the actual sentiments on the grounds,’’ he added.

Jitra UMNO Branch was the former branch where former UMNO President Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad and his wife Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah Mohd. Ali were members till they decided to conditionally quit the party in May.

  1. Berapa JUTA pula tok Joe ngan Man “raup” dapat peruntukan RASUAH kali ni yang sudah tentunya tidak akan didapati bersalah oleh LEMBAGA DISIPLIN UMNO yang pilih bulu. BULU MAN “RAUP” banyak la, macam mamak roti canai

    “Raup” di Kedah maknanya dengan rakusnya menyambar peluang, duit, harta dsb

  2. saudara anjing besar,

    saya syor bubar saja umno.

    sudah tidak relevan dan tiada upaya lagi untuk menolong ugama, bangsa dan kepimpinan negara.

    dah teruk dimakan anai-anai.

  3. Kalau kekuatan Laksamana Hang Tuah terletak pada huruf “ta”, kekuatan Umno pula terletak pada huruf “wau”. Keris Umno jadi tumpul bila huruf “wau” berlegar di depan mata.

    Macam mana nak hapuskan politik wang. Wang yang dihulur bukan wang dia orang atau wang mak bapaknya. Wang tu datang sendiri sebagai pelaburan, mengharapkan dividen yang tinggi. Tauke-tauke pun banyak melabur semasa pemilihan Umno dan pilihanraya umum.

    Tapi orang-orang Umno yang telah tumpul keris dan tumpul akal ini kata wang itu adalah wang calon. Macam mana dia dapat banyak wang kalau bukan sebab kedudukannya dalam Umno. Maknanya wang tu adalah wang Umno juga. Semua ahli Umno ada hak atas wang tu. Janganlah rasa terhutang budi bila dapat wang yang memang hak sendiri.

    Tapi budaya orang Umno memang berbudi bahasa, orang yang memberi, dapatlah berkuasa. Reputlah Umno kerana huruf “wau” selagi orang-orangnya di segenap peringkat mengamalkan budi bahasa seperti itu.

  4. Dear Bigdog,
    The same goes for the UMNO division for Putrajaya. Mounting pressures were exacted to the branches to deny the would-be contender, the nomination, for the Ketua Bahagian post. So much for the UMNO code of Ethics! The would-be contender a.k.a the clown (siBadut as he referred to by his opponents) was sacked from his post as the CEO of the UMNO Training Bureau because of his contention to go for the post of Ketua Bahagian Putrajaya. Like Mukriz, he is feeling the heat now. There is no fair play. If given a level playing field, “siBadut” would almost easily wiped out the present Ketua Bahagian.

    AHO

  5. Kalau ramai sudi memerangkap perasuah politik seperti mana yang berlaku di Centrepoint Seremban pada jam 4.30 ptg, rasuah akhirnya boleh dibanteras. Mengenangkan sampul hanya berisi RM500 sahaja, alangkah murahnya orang UMNO… Atau sebab murah itukah, yang jadikan setengahnya jadi marah lalu memerangkap.

    Mohd Nor Awang adalah pilihan abang Menteri Besar Negeri Sembilan ramai dimaklumkan. Bila ayam tambatan yang tidak rela berucap lebih dari 4 perenggan itu ditahan, kita pasti Menteri Besar, Abang MB dan Adik MB akan lebih bersedia. Mana tahu giliran siapa pula esuk lusa.

    Untuk Mukhriz, jika wang bukan mainan anda, tidak mengapa. Jangan biasakan menabur wang. Berjuang bukan semestinya dengan wang. Anda cemerlang walau tanpa wang.

  6. Sedara Dato Mukhriz,

    Saya berasa amat dukacita di atas kegagalan sedara nak jadi Ketua Pemuda. Orang puteh kata, cross the bridge first, tapi nampaknya, tol tak dapat bayar. Saya syorkan sedara tidak meneruskan usahamu memusnahkan dan memecah belahkan ahli ahli pemuda,tetapi insaf, minta maaf dan menyokong satu satunya calon yang berkebolehan, berkelayakan dan diwajibkan menjadi Ketua iaitu sedara K J.

  7. hei bigdoggy!

    baru first round dah Kid Jerlun bersungut(?)

    memo2mukhriz:
    relaxlah brader! meeting bahagian lambat lagi –
    jadi mau tak mau you kena pulun dari lani juga…
    what makes you think you will get the nominations enuff?

  8. […] Mukhriz: Its getting tougher for me & Jitra Umno members want a change in Kepimpinan […]
