Zahid, however, said the party should hold a convention for divisional representatives to meet and air their differences regarding the current state of the party. He said there were many differences of opinion at present. ”Having different opinions is fine according to Islam. However, there must be a point where people can agree. Don’t just make your own way,” he said. Zahid said much of the disagreement was tainted with emotion. ”Please reduce the emotion and increase the factual content that you put forward in your arguments,” he said.
Zahid said the notion that Umno was “falling apart” was misconceived. The misconception came about because big names, like former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed, were attacking the party leadership. He said Dr Mahathir should respect the current leaders and office-holders. ”When he was PM, he didn’t like people making comments about him,” Zahid said. Zahid said calls made by people like Pahang’s Paya Besar Umno division chief Ahmad Tajudin Sulaiman, who said that the entire supreme council should resign, did not make sense. ”That’s a personal opinion. He’s probably frustrated that he wasn’t chosen to contest in Paya Besar,” he said. ”Asking people to resign won’t solve the problem,” Zahid said.
People might ask what the difference then between A CONVENTION (as proposed by Zahid) and AN EGM (as proposed by Tengku Razaleigh), since both sound very similar. And why is it so necessary for Ku Li and others alike, to press hard for the EGM? Well the big different is that, in an Extra Ordinary Meeting (EGM), a RESOLUTION CAN BE MADE AND PASSED by simple majority of members that represent their division's quota. So if the majority of them present, agreed to a resolution for example to remove the President and voted for it, then PM Abdullah has to resign as President of UMNO. That is why its IMPORTANT for some UMNO leaders and you know who, to voice out and encourage others to AGAINST such act of proposing an EGM. Although the matter shall be decided at a pre-determined meeting of UMNO Supreme Council at later date, the sentiment on giving a GREEN LIGHT for the propose EGM is a DEFINITE NO even among the neutral UMNO Supreme Council members. They view it as unnecessary because of the up-coming UMNO election starting this July at lower (Branch) level. Unfair it may sounds, its a good call to me. Majority UMNOs want a change especially at the top level. And come this December, they will have their shots at it. Why have the redundancy. But Zahid to accuse Ku Li of taking advantage is a RIDICULOUS OPINION. Especially from one as HIGHLY CONTROVERSIAL and LOWLY CREDIBILITY as Zahid. Tell us one UMNO leaders who are not taking any advantage or opportunity for whatever agendas, good or bad, from the recent HORRIBLE, SPECTACULAR and UNBELIEVABLE (losing 4+1+1 states) PRU 12 results? The results showed that Malaysian, Malay and UMNO members had consciously giving advantages and making opportunities wide open for anyone to make use (as an inroad) of them as long as their wishes come true. If that needs for Ku Li to start the ball rolling, then so be it. Because the Rakyat and UMNO members want to be HEARD NOW. They dont want craps no more. They have been feeding on the same grubs all this while and years. They know whats the kind of grub those stubborn leaders will feed on to them and they clearly know the kind of foolish political cosmetically cookie Zahid is holding up to them. Its time to FINISH UP the biscuit, NOT CHEWING THEM anymore.
