Umno elections not a beauty pageant, says Annuar Musa

Umno’s Ketereh division leader Tan Sri Annuar Musa has described the new rules ahead of the party polls as similar to that of a “beauty pageant”.

“You take the candidates on a stage, introduce them to the delegates and they wave. This is not how you select a leader.

“The Umno elections are not a beauty pageant,” Annuar said.

He said candidates should be judged based on the way they debate, articulate ideas, express their thoughts on current issues and should be given the opportunity to interact with the voting delegates.

“We must take the spirit of the liberating power of the grassroots. Delegates should be allowed to meet and know their candidates.”


The Mara chairman said this when met at his house in Bukit Damansara. He was discharged from hospital last Saturday after being admitted for dengue fever for more than a week.

HD says: Annuar Musa revealed he has only been admitted in a hospital twice - once for a motorcycle crash during his younger days and for dengue fever recently.

  1. Umno, takut kepada bayang2 sendiri...

    Umno, dahulu yang kita kenal merupakan satu parti yg memberi harapan dan peluang kepada semua.(Tunku, Tun Razak dan Tun Hussein Onn)
    Selain drp peristiwa Mei 13 - angkara perbuatan beberapa pemimpin yg bergelar diri mereka sebagai Nationalist dlm Umno, yang sanggup mencetuskan huru hara yg menjurus kepada kematian dan kesengsaraan. Walaupun begitu, Umno, masih merupakan pada masa itu, sebuah parti yg di hormati dan boleh di percayai, sebagai peneraju - Contoh yg nyata pada masa itu ialah, kedudukan semua bangsa dlm perkhidmatan awam, di semua peringkat.

    Umno kini, lebih kearah perniagaan di mana kuasa duit yg menentukan kedudukan dan keputusan, bukan lagi pada kepimpinan yg murni dan mulia - dgn izin Allah.
    "Akibat drp keruntuhan ini,...parti tersebut telah hanyut di lautan tanpa arah, hingga tidak dpt kembali ke tempat asal."

    Umno selama-lamanya, merupakan parti yg hanya di pimpin oleh saudaramara dan anak-beranak mantan pemimpin.Hanya mereka sahaja yg bijak pandai dan layak sebagai pemimpin. Org biasa seperti kita hanya layak menjadi penyokong dan kuli bagi kemajuaan politik mereka. Pada masa yg sama, parti Melayu ini, sedang menuju kearah penolakan total oleh org Melayu sendiri pada masa akan dtg, kalau gagal kembali ke dahulu,,,

    Harapan dan kesejahteraan negara ini, terletak di tangan org2 Melayu. Peranan mereka sebagai Ketua Kerajaan adalah sangat tepat, dan perlu di jaga dgn baik, agar kaum minority dan yg kurang bernasib baik terbela dan dpt di lindungi.

    Dunia kini, sedang menuju ke suatu arah di mana material mengatasi nilai-nilai kemanusiaan. Oleh sebab ini, ramai diantara kita hanya mempunyai kemamapuan kewangan yg terhad, sehingga terpaksa menanggung beban yg berat dlm menjalankan kehudupan. Gaji minima RM900 adalah sangat malang bagi pemimpin2 Melayu ini...

    Mereka telah mencorakan kehidupan golongan kurang bernasib baik di Malaysia, kesatu tahap yg memalukan.- Kualiti kehidupan yg melibatkan perumahan, kemudahan dan bekalan.
    Kita tidak mahu pemimpin Melayu yg mempunyai kuasa, tetapi tidak mampu untuk menjamin kehidupan yg di harapkan.

    Peraturan perniagaan yg sedang di amalkan di sini dan yg sedia ada, telah memberi kuasa kepada pihak korperat dan swasta mencorak kehidupan kita agar sentiasa berada dlm penindasan - Ini telah di benarkan oleh pemimpin2 Melayu kita.

    Disamping itu, ada banyak lagi perkara2 yg melibatkan kepimpinan Melayu yg telah membawa banyak kesusahan keatas rakyat yg kurang bernasib baik.


    HSKL kata: "Org Melayu, pelindung dan tempat berteduh, untuk semua". .

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.

Why?

It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.

UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
