'Truly transformational team' for Umno in Penang
GE13 WATCH Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who appears reluctant to dissolve Parliament ahead of midnight on April 29, is said to be facing vicious infighting over seat allocation within Umno.
In Penang, rumbles are being heard in the Umno camp that, despite all Najib’s talk about transformation, few youth leaders will be fielded as candidates in the 13th general election.
When contacted, the usually vocal Penang Umno Youth chief Shaik Hussein Mydin declined to comment.
But state BN liason committee chief Zainal Abidin Osman defended his boss, saying that Najib’s decision not to dissolve Parliament yet is “a blessing in disguise” for the party.
