The Civil War in UMNO continues post GE 14!

No, TMJ doesn’t listen to failed leaders. And who is the failed leader?

30 May 2019

The purported amendment to the Umno constitution, which would see party leaders facing court action dropped from their posts, is reportedly being pushed by deputy president Mohamad Hasan.

Quoting sources, the Straits Times reported that Mohamad is pressing for this, along with his ally and vice-president Mohamed Khaled Nordin, who has been tasked with overseeing the changes to the party constitution.

A source told Malaysiakini earlier this month that Umno is seeking to amend Clause 9.9of its constitution in an extraordinary general meeting in November.

If successful, the move will see Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and his predecessor Najib Abdul Razak automatically dropped from their posts. Najib now heads the Pekan division of the party.

However, the move will not be easy as constitutional amendments need to be agreed to by two-thirds of delegates at the EGM.

Several party leaders have confirmed the proposed change to the amendment, reported the Straits Times.

“I want to see how they are going to sell this to the members,” Johor Umno deputy chief Nur Jazlan Mohamed was quoted as saying.

“It’s the internal shenanigans of a party that doesn’t realise it’s in opposition now.”

An unnamed Umno insider said, meanwhile, that “everyone is claiming to be the boss nowadays.”

Mohamad, who has served as acting Umno head since Zahid went on leave, said last month that an EGM will be held to amend certain provisions in the party constitution.

The EGM is set to be held during the Umno general assembly from Nov 13 to 16.

Zahid, who is facing 47 counts of money-laundering, criminal breach of trust and corruption, is facing immense pressure from within Umno to let go of his post.

Najib, meanwhile, is facing multiple court trials related to 1MDB.

KEPALA BATAS: There is no internal conflict within Umno in terms of the party’s top leadership, Umno Youth said today.

Its chief Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki said Umno Tebrau’s view, urging party president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to continue his leave and relinquish his post to make way for his deputy Datuk Seri Mohamad Hassan, better known as Tok Mat, was just the division’s personal view.

“It does not reflect the views of Umno as a whole.

“(Datuk Seri) Zahid is still the party president. He is currently on leave, and in no way affects his position.

(Datuk Seri) Mohamad is just there to take over his role temporarily,” he told newsmen when met here after presenting 500 packets of bubur lambuk in conjunction with the fasting month.

Present was Umno Kepala Batas division chief Datuk Seri Reezal Merican Naina Merican.

Asyraf said it was better for Umno to focus on taking on Pakatan Harapan, which is in a disorganised state.

“I have gone down to 81 Umno divisions nationwide and party grassroots have no issue on this.

“We are all more concerned about how to help the people who are facing hardship under PH due to rising cost of living and constant U-turns in its policies,” he said.

Asked if Umno Youth had any issues with Zahid returning, Asyraf said the matter does not arise.

“It was only in the beginning we make a stand that he (Zahid) should take leave following his court cases, and that is about it.

Meanwhile, Reezal Merican, who is Umno supreme council member, also maintained there was no issue with the party’s top leadership,

“Zahid had entrusted the responsibility to Mohamad, who has been doing a great job, for example, with the by-elections.

“We (Umno) are now stronger and that is more important. The people want to see how the collaboration between the party and Pas can fight PH.” he added.


Umno is expected to amend its constitution in an extraordinary general meeting in November, which will result in its president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and his predecessor Najib Abdul Razak automatically dropped from their positions.

The amendment is to Clause 9.9 of the Umno constitution, which says that any party leader who is facing court action will be automatically dropped from his or her position.

Najib, the former prime minister, now heads the Pekan division of the party.

According to a source, however, making this amendment will not be easy, as it needs the agreement of two-thirds of delegates at the EGM.

“What is worrying is that this action will lead to a split within Umno, since Najib and Zahid have their own following,” the source said, adding that several other notbale constitutional amendments will be made.

It is learned that Umno vice president Mohamed Khaled Nordin has been tasked to scrutinise the issues pertaining to the amendment to Clause 9.9.

Deputy president Mohamad Hasan, who has served as acting Umno head since Zahid went on leave, said last month that an EGM will be held to amend certain provisions in the party constitution.

This includes granting the Sabah Umno greater autonomy, which means the chapter will be able to make its own decisions without referring to the headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

The EGM is set to be held during the Umno general assembly from Nov 13 to 16.

On the other amendments, the source said that these will include limiting office-bearers to three terms.

“This is also for Umno division chief posts,” the source noted. “This is the reform that Umno is trying to enact.”


Tebrau Umno chief Maulizan Bujang said Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s supporters should stop teasing his return.

This is amid criticism among Zahid’s supporters against acting Umno president Mohamad Hasan’s leadership and suggesting that Zahid, who was elected as Umno president, should return from leave.

Maulizan said the message peddled by Zahid’s supporters that Umno was now directionless was the exact reason why he was asked to go on leave.

“To these people, Umno needs a breath of fresh air and Zahid is not the person to do it.

“We pray that Zahid and former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak can get justice in the charges against them.

“Let Umno go to the current leaders and there is no need to tease about (Zahid and Najib) making a comeback,” he said in a statement.

Both Zahid and Najib are currently facing corruption charges.

Maulizan said no one would stop them from coming back once they are cleared by the courts.

“It is true some supporters have not returned to Umno as there are still those who think that Umno has not truly changed due to support for leaders who face various abuse of power and corruption charges.

“But with Zahid’s teasing, which does not benefit the party, it is hard to create a perception that Umno has truly changed,” he said.



EFFORTS are under way to coax Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to lead the party again, sources told The Malaysian Insight.

The leaders want the Umno president to take the helm as the Malay party appears to lack direction since Mohamad Hasan took over the president’s duties, said a source familiar with the matter, adding that senior party leaders are trying to persuade Zahid.

“Zahid will come back soon. There is someone influential in the party trying to convince him to come back from leave and lead again,” said the party insider.

The source added there have been very few efforts to shore up the leadership since Zahid went on leave six months ago.

He was slapped with 45 counts of criminal breach of trust, abuse of power and money-laundering involving RM114.15 million.

Party elections are due in 2021 while the next general election must be held before July 2023.

“But there is a list (‘cai’) of prospective leaders going around already,”   said another source.

“This is being done to pit Umno leaders against each other and weaken the party.”

One of the lists dubbed “Team Tok Mat” has Mohamad as the party president with Mohamed Khaled Nordin as deputy.

The three vice-presidents on the list are Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki, Johari Abdul Ghani and Abdul Rahman Dahlan.

The list, currently being circulated in Umno circles, has attracted all sorts of comments.

One of the comments described the list as being irresponsible as party elections are not due for another two years.

Some of the members want the party leaders to focus on its partnership with PAS to face the next general election instead of worrying about who will lead the party.

Among one of the strategies being discussed with PAS include avoiding three-cornered fights that contributed to the end of Barisan Nasional’s 61-year rule.

Zahid told The Malaysian Insight in an interview in May that he was only “on leave” to calm things down in the party after 17 MPs decided to quit and join Pakatan Harapan.

The former deputy prime minister said he had never used the words “leave” but decided to let Mohamad run the party as president in his absence.

SELANGOR Umno has submitted to the party leadership three names to replace the chapter’s liaison committee chairman Ismail Sabri Yaakob, said sources.

The three names proposed are state Umno deputy chairman Mat Nadzari Ahmad Dahmad, and division chiefs Johan Abdul Aziz (Hulu Langat) and Megat Zulkarnain Omardin (Gombak).

all state division heads in Kg Baru, Kuala Lumpur, last Saturday.

“The party headquarters are expected to make an announcement after Hari Raya Aidilfitri,” said a source, who attended the meeting.

Umno vice-president Ismail Sabri, from Pahang, was named Selangor Umno’s liaison chief after the party elections last year, as the state Umno leadership was reeling from its heavy defeat in the 14th general election.

Leading up to GE14, Selangor Umno was led by Tanjung Karang chief Noh Omar. The chapter’s leaders now feel it is time to draw in new blood to wrest the state from Pakatan Harapan in the next general election.

Selangor Umno now has 11 new division chiefs of the state’s 22 divisions.

The battle within Camp Najib

The Malaysian Insight

THERE is a battle being waged in Putrajaya between influential supporters of Prime Minister Najib Razak over the future of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Dzulkifli Ahmad.

Both sides have senior politicians, civil servants and political operatives in their corner. Both sides are employing bloggers, social media platforms and even mainstream media to push their angle and achieve the outcome they want.

The pro-Dzulkifli camp believe that all the MACC chief needs to do is make some grovelling apology and take the woman in the video as his second wife and all will be forgotten in good time. They believe that everyone makes mistakes and he should not lose his job because of a personal shortcoming.

This camp feels that in due time, Malaysians will forget about the controversial video of the MACC chief holidaying in Bali with someone else’s wife and the allegation that his indiscretion led to the break-up of a marriage.

It remains unclear why this camp is batting for Dzulkifli given that several of them, including Najib’s operatives, were predicting the end of the MACC chief’s tenure weeks before the videos surfaced, citing Dzulkifli’s hubris and unpopularity among Umno warlords.

On the flip side, there is another camp in Putrajaya that believes it is impossible to sweep this case under the bed because a slew of police reports have been lodged about the case.

What is particularly grating for this group is that there is evidence that this alleged friendship with the woman is not something that happened recently. It has been going on for some time and the individuals have been cautioned about it being unbecoming.
Expect the battle to get nastier unless Najib steps in.

Till now, it isn’t clear whether the prime minister wants his compromised MACC to go or stay.

It awaits his decision and, until then, his minions will fight away. – October 23, 2017.

Annuar Musa to quit has Mara boss, has given letter to PM


Umno Information chief Annuar Musa has no plan to continue being the chairperson of Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) after holding the post for four years come Aug 11.

He said he had personally sent a letter to Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak on Aug 2 requesting for consideration not to be reappointed to the post.

“I think there are many of my friends who are qualified but yet to get the opportunity to be appointed to the post. And I have proposed to (Najib as) the Umno president to give them the opportunity.

“Let somebody else continue the legacy and I’m grateful that under my leadership, Mara had not been deluged in any controversy, but instead had made more profit…I also defended Mara in certain issues which resulted in me being disliked by certain people,” he told reporters after opening the Hulu Terengganu Umno division delegates’ conference in Kuala Berang last night.

Umno leaders rubbish claims Annuar suspended over UEC


KUALA LUMPUR: Two Umno leaders today called into question Annuar Musa’s claim that he was suspended as Mara chairman because he supported the government’s call to confer recognition on the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC).

Umno supreme council member Nazri Aziz rebutted the claim, saying he himself was a staunch supporter of the UEC, even back when Muhyiddin Yassin was the education minister, yet no drastic action had been taken against him.

“I want to know, who discriminated against him (Annuar)? Was it the Cabinet?” he said outside the Dewan Rakyat today.

Yesterday, Sin Chew Daily quoted Annuar, who is the Umno information chief, as saying his suspension stemmed from his backing of the UEC.

Annuar denied he was suspended in January over the use of funds from two Mara subsidiaries to sponsor the Kelantan football team while he was the state’s football association president.

But fellow Umno supreme council member Ismail Sabri Yaakob disagreed and clarified that Annuar’s suspension stemmed from the controversial use of Mara subsidies and sponsorship of the Kelantan football team, the Red Warriors.

“I was made to understand that the internal auditors had questions about the sponsorship of the football team and (the investigation) had nothing to do with the UEC,” he told FMT, referring to the Mara probe into Annuar which began last month.

In January, Annuar was accused of using his influence as Mara chairman to persuade Pelaburan Mara Bhd and UniKL to sponsor the Red Warriors.

The revelation come to light during a spat between Annuar and Johor crown prince, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, who questioned the use of “public funds” to “save” the Kelantan football team from a financial crisis.

Najib: Annuar remains Umno info chief for now

Umno president Najib Abdul Razak said Annuar Musa would remain as Umno Information chief for now.

The prime minister said Annuar, the MP for Ketereh, should be given the opportunity to clear his name from accusations on abuse of power linked to sponsorship of the Kelantan football team The Red Warriors by agencies under Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara).

“He is willing to be investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC), so give him a chance to clear his name.

“We cannot make assumptions… due process must take place,” he said.

Analyst says Annuar’s suspension boon for Ismail Sabri in Umno race


Umno supreme council member Ismail Sabri Yaakob can capitalise on information chief Annuar Musa’s suspension as Majlis Amanah Rakyat (Mara) chairperson to secure a future spot as a party vice- president, said an analyst.

Universiti Sains Malaysia professor Ahmad Atory Hussain speculated that both were eyeing to become one of the elected Umno vice-presidents.

“Some people want to aim for high positions such as the vice-presidency, like Ismail who is a strongman of Pahang Umno and party president Najib Abdul Razak.

“He wants to get strong support from Umno members in the future because there is likely to be two vacancies for the Umno vice-presidency.

“Annuar wants to become a vice-president too… but now that (Annuar) has taken a hit, he (Ismail) will have a better chance,” Atory told Malaysiakini.

There is currently a power vacuum in Umno following former vice-president Shafie Apdal’s decision to quit the party.

Meanwhile, another Umno vice-president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has taken on the role of de facto deputy president, leaving Hishamuddin Hussein as the only remaining vice-president.

We’re investigating Annuar Musa, says MACC

PETALING JAYA: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has confirmed that it is investigating Mara chairman Annuar Musa over alleged misappropriation of funds and abuse of power.

In a brief statement, MACC said it had opened an investigation paper to look into the allegations against Annuar, who was today suspended from his post by the Mara board over the matter of sponsorship of the Kelantan football team by two Mara subsidiaries.

“We will work with Mara’s internal auditors and focus on Annuar’s involvement in the sponsorship of the Kelantan football team.

“Mara’s auditors will investigate the alleged mismanagement.”

The anti-graft body went on to advise the public to refrain from making any speculation about the case and to allow them to investigate the matter accordingly.

Annuar, who is the former Kelantan Football Association president, was previously accused of using Pelaburan Mara Bhd (PMB) funds to sponsor the state football team, which plays in the Malaysia Super League (MSL).

The issue was first brought up by Johor crown prince Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim, who had questioned Mara’s use of “public funds” to “save” the Kelantan football team from a financial crisis.

Tunku Ismail had said Annuar needed to explain PMB and Universiti Kuala Lumpur’s (UniKL) “forced sponsorship” of the football team.

UniKL is a private university owned by Mara.

Annuar, who is an Umno Supreme Council member, had denied using PMB and UniKL funds to sponsor the team.

Ku Nan: Najib to decide on Annuar’s Umno post

KUALA LUMPUR: Annuar Musa’s future as Umno Information chief following his suspension as Mara chairman, is up to the party president.

Umno secretary-general Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said Annuar was appointed to the post by Umno President Najib Razak.

“His post in Umno was appointed by the president and his suspension is in a government agency.

“It (Annuar’s suspension) does not involve his post in Umno, it is up to the president (to decide),” he said when contacted by Bernama here today.

Mara today suspended the duties of the Ketereh Member of Parliament as agency chairman and Pelaburan Mara Bhd (PMB) chairman effective immediately.

The unanimous decision was made in a special meeting chaired by Mara Council Member Yusof Yacub at the agency’s headquarters here.

Annuar’s suspension was to allow a Mara internal audit into several matters regarding the agency including the sponsorships by PMB and Universiti Kuala Lumpur (UniKL) of the Kelantan football team, The Red Warriors (TRW).

Annuar suspension: C4 chief calls for full Mara audit

PETALING JAYA: The Center to Combat Corruption and Cronyism (C4) has called for a full audit on Mara, which today suspended its chairman Annuar Musa.

C4 executive director Cynthia Gabriel urged the auditor-general to act in the name of public interest.

“Present the report to Parliament so that the public knows the extent of malpractice that has occurred,” she said.

Gabriel also urged the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) to conduct a thorough probe into Annuar, whose immediate suspension could indicate that the Mara board had found evidence of misappropriation of funds.

“We believe the unanimous decision by the Mara board (to suspend Annuar) and the immediate effect of the suspension is indicative of strong evidence of misappropriation of funds,” she told FMT.
