Jamal-Yunos-UMNOSUNGAI BULOH: Jamal Yunos has promised to reveal his academic credentials this Sunday, in the lead-up to his move to vie for the Umno Youth chief’s post to replace Khairy Jamaluddin who wants to give way.

“I will answer this on July 23 at the Pandan Umno Youth’s official event at Hotel Flamingo, Ampang.

“I will show my whole profile there,” he told reporters after travelling on the MRT from the Kajang station to Sungai Buloh today.

The head of Umno’s Sungai Besar division said every individual had his own strengths and had the right to offer himself to head the wing even though he might not have a degree, like Khairy, from the University of Oxford.

“Each person has his own advantage. All leaders have their plus points and I have never undermined Khairy.

“I respect him as a prominent figure and a leader of the youths in the country. He has his own accomplishments, but anyone can offer himself (for the post).

“I feel that I also have a right to offer myself as a candidate for Umno Youth chief because in his address at the Umno general assembly before this Khairy had said this would be his last term,” Jamal added.

 

Last Sunday, Jamal had aired his intention to lead Umno Youth if Khairy were to relinquish the position.

He said the move was among the options open to him if he was not nominated to contest in any parliamentary or state seat in the 14th general election (GE14).

The politician who is known for eccentric demonstrations against the Selangor government has received backing from Umno Supreme Council member Nazri Aziz, while criticisms have been levelled against him by opposition parties.
