JERLUN – Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) presidential candidate Tan Sri Annuar Musa said it has not crossed his mind to withdraw from the race.
While he has yet to receive the inspiration to withdraw, Annuar who is also UMNO Information chief said on the contrary many parties were urging him to continue the contest for the post.
“I do not want to make the FAM president fight as the ultimate goal, I am thinking more of the people and the government’s victory in the 14th general
election,” he said after attending the simultaneous opening of Kedah UMNO branch meeting here today.
The March 25 FAM presidential election will be a straight fight between the Tunku Mahkota of Johor, Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim and Annuar.
The UMNO leader said he did not want to carry out any politicking nor campaign to win votes as he was confident the affliate members had already made up their minds on whom to choose.
“What is important is that national football has to improve, it does not matter if I win or not,” he said.
Commenting on the action of some parties disputing his competency as FAM president, Annuar said he was prepared to accept any criticisms and views thrown at him with an open heart.
“I should be challenged because as a candidate if I am not challenged, it means I am perfect, similarly people who disputed my candidacy should also be ready to accept my criticism, but we will be courteous,” he said. – BERNAMA
