KUALA LUMPUR- Umno leaders and members should strengthen the party’s legacy and improve every weakness in order to win back the people’s trust towards the party, said Barisan Nasional (BN) Parit Sulong assemblyman Datuk Dr Noraini Ahmad.
Noraini, who is also one of the candidates for the Wanita Umno chief post, said Wanita Umno should boost its machineries as well as its social media team in order to stamp out the negative perceptions against the party in the social media platform.
“We should always remember that failing to wipe out the negative perception in the social media was the reason why we lost in the 14th general-election. We must make improvements in line with the challenges facing voters in the information technology era.
“The most important thing is to regain the people’s trusts towards Umno and improve the party’s strategies,” she said in a statement issued today.
She said there is a need to win back the support from the younger generation as that was too, one of the reasons why Umno failed to win the majority votes from the youths in the last election.
Noraini also said they can foresee the challenges that would come in the next 15th general election. However, she said it was beyond her authority to explain on what the party would do next.
“We will do our very best to win back the young voters, InshaaAllah,” she said.
Noraini said she is mentally and physically prepared to take on the task and challenges in leading Wanita Umno and called upon all delegates in the party to support her based on her track record in the party.
“I pledge to make use all the experience and knowledge to improve for the sake of Umno. I also promise to give full committment and work hard for the party,” Noraini added.
Three candidates have submitted their nomination papers in vying for the Wanita Umno chief post in the coming Umno election.
