November 30, 2011

The assemblies are likely to focus on strengthening the party's machinery in gearing up for the upcoming 13th general election.

KUALA LUMPUR: The three Umno wings — Wanita, Youth and Puteri — began their general assemblies simultaneously at 8am this morning, at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) here.

The assemblies are likely to focus on strengthening the party’s machinery in gearing up for the upcoming 13th general election.

The Wanita Umno’s general assembly, which is attended by 944 delegates, is being held at the Tun Dr Ismail Hall while the Youth movement, with 942 delegates, at the Tun Hussein Onn Hall Hall and Puteri, with 934 delegates, at the Merdeka Hall.

The wings’ assemblies were declared open by Umno deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin last night.

Wanita chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil had been reported as saying that the movement would focus on unity and discipline as it was important in the preparation for the “battlefield” to ensure victory for Umno and the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the general election.

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin reportedly said that the movement would highlight the transformation programmes introduced by Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak, so it would be better understood by the delegates especially the younger generation.

Puteri Umno chief Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin meanwhile reportedly said that the movement would raise issues involving the young generation.

The delegates will then debate on their chiefs’ speech as well as other proposed economic, education and religious resolutions.
