Umno branches and divisions nationwide should fully utilise the experience and influence of veteran party members to ensure a big victory for Barisan Nasional in the coming general election.
Malaysian Umno Veterans’ Club secretary Datuk Mustapha Yaakub said their wide experience and wide influence could provide the much needed ammunition to deny the dream of the opposition to conquer Putrajaya.
“What we want is to help strengthen the party in line with our motto ‘Veterans are catalysts to the Leadership of Umno’.
“We don’t have any ambition to return actively at any levels or compete for any posts. We only want Umno and BN to win big and be retained in power,” he told Bernama.
He said through the slogan ‘My family votes BN’, the club would ensure every Umno veteran family’s vote was counted.
“With more than 700,000 members nationwide, we will summon all our members to strengthen the party in facing the 13th general election,” he stressed. – Bernama
So desperate for votes? What happen to Pahlawan Melayu Umno? To resort to dragging their old folks into their selfish political struggle.
A huge amount of UMNO veterans, those that supported UMNO-asli, but grew increasingly disappointed with UMNO-palsu (post 1988), are now going to vote PR.
UMNO veterans are the last generation politicians who has become irrelevant as their times are over. Time moves on but their political influence has stagnated with their time. UMNO has veterans like Zam who created damage than build bridges of friendship when he criticized other country's leaders. The more such veterans speak their mind, the more arrogant they are, a typical UMNO trait. They have outlived their time & are expired politicians. Best for them to take care of their health & grandchildren.
No matter how hard UMNO work for the coming GE, the Rakyat will not vote for them because they stole billions of ringgit and stash it overseas. We are not fools anymore.
