ALOR GAJAH – Puteri Umno will send about 1,000 members to assist the Barisan Nasional (BN) machinery in the Permatang Pauh and Rompin Parliamentary by-elections to be held early next month.
Its head, Datuk Mas Ermieyati Samsuddin said the number involved its members of various levels and states outside the two areas.
“We do not need to worry as there are many Puteri Umno members in the two parliamentary constituencies (Permatang Pauh and Rompin), we have also held meetings with BN’s top leadership as well as Puteri heads in every state, and we have agreed to divide the work.
“This is a big and challenging task for Puteri Umno and BN but I am confident that the work division will be smooth and effective,” she told reporters here Friday.
Mas Ermieyati, who is the member of parliament for Masjid Tanah, was speaking after a ceremony to present the Masjid Tanah Parliamentary constituency academic excellence awards to 89 Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia and Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia students here.
