Pro-UMNO bloggers urging PM Najib

Pro-UMNO bloggers initiated by Outsyed-the-Box came out strongly against PM Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak to be very mindful on personalities that will be appointed into the Cabinet and strategic posts in GLCs.  At the top of our heads, Tan Sri Nor Mohamed Yackop, Dato’ Seri Mohd. Nazri Tan Sri Aziz, Dato’ Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim, Dato’ Khaled Nordin and Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin.

Nor Mohamed is obvious about all the failures and scandals in GLCs, especially Khazanah Holdings Bhd. Nazri is about his uncouth remark against Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad being a “racist”, for defending BTN.  Dr. Rais is about the being the Foreign Minister during the recently uncovered ‘Block L & M and Limbang’ scandals.  Khaled about his one failure after another in two Ministries, now disbanded Entreprenuer and Co-operative Development and Higher Education, and the fact that he is no longer Majlis Tertinggi UMNO member. No need further explanation on highly controversial and onetime ‘The most powerful 28 year old” (as per described by The Star political columnist Joceline Tan in 2005)  Khairy.

Amongst the demand is for UMNO Youth Leader to remain outside the Government and focus on bringing back the aggressiveness in once the primary pressure group with the nationalist party. The lackluster attitude of UMNO Leaders, especially the much disappointing UMNO Youth Leaders to speak up and ‘fight’ for the interests of the Malays, now being systematically challenged not only by Chinese Chauvinist DAP and NGOs such as Dong Zhiong but also BN component parties such as MCA and Gerakan. The void is now being carried on by Malay NGOs such as PERKASA. In fact, recently MCA President Dato’ Seri Chua Soi Lek blamed PERKASA for their failures.

UMNO Youth badly need to prove themselves and they don’ actually have much time to do it.  Any position, even in position such as Chairmanship of GLCs or statutory bodies must now come as a reward.
