Ku Li for UMNO Presidency

Hot, Hot, Hot News :: Sun2Surf online reports ::

Ku Li offers himself for Umno presidency



GUA MUSANG: Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has offered himself as a candidate for the Umno presidency in party polls in September on grounds that he wants democracy to flourish, besides enabling him to continue his struggle for the party.

Opening the Youth and Wanita delegates meeting for the Gua Musang division on Friday, the former Umno veep said it was now up to party members nationwide to accept his offer and nominate him at their divisional delegates meetings.

"So today, on a good day and a good month, in front of all of you, and following urges and requests from many, particularly friends, I feel it's not too extreme if I were nominated for the post of (Umno) president.

"If the number (of nominations) is sufficient as stipulated by the party constitution, I'm prepared to consider accepting the nominations.

"With your prayers, I have been given the strength and adequate knowledge to continue the struggles on behalf of the Umno people," he said to loud applause from about 1,000 delegates and guests at the meeting at Bukit Chekati, here.

This is Bernama has to report as to why Ku Li is offering himself for the Presidency ::
"The post (of president) is still vacant and the party responsible in deciding the (holder of the) post are the Umno members through the divisional delegates meetings nationwide.

"Furthermore, and as far as I know, no one has made an offer for the post at the moment except for myself. I hope I will get the support from the divisions if they feel I am qualified and suitable.

"If they feel I am not qualified, what can I say, this is just an offer to serve from someone who has been long in the party but without a position, although I am full of eagerness to champion the cause of Umno," Razaleigh said.


This is what Shahrir Samad has to comment regarding Ku Li's offer ::
When asked to speculate on what may be the reasons behind Razaleigh’s motivation, Shahrir said: "I think he’s driven by the sense that he’s better than Dollah Badawi... the fact that he is more senior, has been around longer, and had fought the party president at a time when Dollah was only running for the number three post. Because of that, he can never consider being number two or three to Dollah."


On 23rd June, veteran journalist, MGG Pillai had this to say ::
To this, the UMNO leaders have no answer. So, they cloak themselves in prophylactics, oblivious of the floods, landslides, earthqakes, and revolutions outside the bubble. It is actions like that force these factions and camps out on the streets to argue their case. We have had it once before. And another could not be far off, if the issues that bring these factions and camps into the open are not resolved if not addressed, and the leaders make sure they are properly elected. There is no sign of that. But the two top positions would be almost certainly challenged. That worries the top leaders, not factionalism or camps. For if there is a fight, the factions and the camps would not unite behind the UMNO's preferred leaders. That includes Pak Lah and Dato' Seri Najib.


On 8th July, RPK in his article :: Who will be the one to bell the cat?; started of his article by saying ::
The battle lines are drawn. Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah (Ku Li) is going to make a bid for the top job; that of the Umno Presidency, which would then automatically make him the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
and continues by saying ::
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (Pak Lah) and Najib Tun Razak are both Acting President and Acting Deputy President respectively. This would therefore make them Acting Prime Minister and Acting Deputy Prime Minister. They would need to be ‘confirmed’ to their posts this September.
RPK concludes ::
Ku Li’s biggest challenge is to find who is going to be that first -- the brave mouse that will bell the cat. Once someone comes forward and takes the lead, the others would follow super-fast and Ku Li would get his 60 to 70 nominations. And, once that happens, Ku Li will certainly win.
Winning the Umno Presidency is no effort for Ku Li. Getting his nominations is. And that is what Ku Li is working on even as we speak.


Ku Li has offered himself, probably his last chance to have a go at the UMNO Presidency and a chance to be the 1st among equals. Will UMNO members take up his offer to serve?
