Zahid's daughter defeated in Wanita Umno polls

Published:  |  Modified:

Nurulhidayah Ahmad Zahid was not elected into the new Wanita Umno leadership lineup after failing to make into the top 20 in the wing's election yesterday.

Nurulhidayah, who is Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi's daughter, took to Instagram to concede defeat.

"Thank you for your support and prayers. It was not to be for me to be part of the Wanita Umno exco lineup in this election.

"The struggle must continue. For me, winning and losing is part of any contest and this is Allah's best plan for me.

"In the words of a friend, the courage to contest is the start of a victory," she said in the Instagram posting.

In her posting, Nurulhidayah also suggested that the election of leaders should open to all members instead of just delegates.

"This will help eliminate the culture of money politics among Umno members and Umno will be seen as a more transparent party," she said.

 

Assalammualaikum. Terima kasih atas sokongan n doa kawan2.. tiada rezeki buat saya dalam pemilihan kali ini untuk berdiri sebaris dengan barisan EXCO Wanita UMNO Malaysia. Perjuangan harus tetap diteruskan! Bagi saya, menang kalah adalah adat dalam pertandingan malahan inilah perancangan yang terbaik dari Allah yang telah tertulis buat saya. Memetik kata2 dari seorang sahabat, keberanian untuk menjadi calon dan bertanding adalah permulaan kepada kemenangan. Inshaa Allah. Namun demikian, suka saya mencadangkan kepada pucuk pimpinan, sebagai langkah untuk UMNO baharu, merakyatkan UMNO adalah langkah yang perlu di pertimbangkan dimana, pengundian pucuk pimpinan perlu melibatkan keseluruhan ahli UMNO. Ini sedikit sebanyak akan membuang terus budaya politik wang dikalangan ahli UMNO dan UMNO akan terlihat sebagai parti yang lebih telus. Inshaa Allah. Nurulhidayah Ahmad Zahid.
