Supporters provide moral support for Abdullah
The Star Online (Latest)
PUTRAJAYA: About 30 Umno supporters gathered outside the Prime Minister’s official residence here on Wednesday, urging Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to remain in office.Carrying posters of Abdullah, they waited from 7.30am until 9.30am, when the Umno president left home for the weekly Cabinet meeting.
Abdullah stopped his motorcade briefly to greet them, and shook hands with some of them.
A text message had been circulating on Tuesday asking supporters to gather at Seri Perdana to “provide moral support” for Abdullah.
Umno Overseas Club deputy president Datuk Mohd Rais Zainuddin said the group wanted Abdullah to carry out a proper transition of power instead of being pressured to step down.
“We want a harmonious power transition. We don’t want the party to be destabilised. The party has to stay united,” he said.
Batu 9 (of Bukit Gantang, Perak) Umno branch advisor Kapt Abdul Razak Baba said a petition was carried out to demonstrate the level of support commanded by Abdullah.
Claiming to be a politicial observer to Abdullah, he said Abdullah was supported by 191 divisions in the country.
“Only 10–15% want him to step down,” he said.
Kapt Abdul Razak said some of the Umno leaders who have signed include Senator Tan Sri Dr Jins Shamsuddin, Datuk Rahim Abu, Datuk Hanafi Mamat, Datuk Hashim Rusdi and Asmadi Abu Bakar.
10-15%? How do they do the math?
UMNO branch advisor? UMNO = macam-macam ada!
My latest visit to the same URL with regard to the above report at The Star Online website here, shows that the wordings "About 30 Umno supporters" have now been changed/edited to "A group of Umno supporters". They sure work fast, don't they? hahaha.... Apa-apa jelah!
