PETALING JAYA- Wanita Umno chief Tan Sri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil (pic) will not be defending her position at the coming party elections.
In a statement Tuesday, she said she will not be offering to contest the position as the time has come for the party wing to be helmed by a new leader.
A new leader “can bring new ways and ideas to get support not just from Wanita Umno but from the rakyat,” Shahrizat said in her statement.
She said that she had communicated her decision during the Wanita Umno exco meeting which she chaired Tuesday.
She said the movement has many leaders with potential and experience, and expressed her confidence that they would be able to serve the people well.“I urge all Wanita Umno members to maintain their spirit as the wing is the backbone of the party,” said Shahrizat.- The Star Online
