KUALA LUMPUR – Wanita UMNO top leaders and state chiefs today held a closed-door meeting with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and expressed their undivided support for the prime minister.
The Wanita UMNO leaders represent about 1.3 million members of the UMNO women’s wing.
Wanita UMNO chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil said Najib, as the prime minister, Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman and UMNO president, knew that his primary responsibility was to the people and party.
She also said that he would, in due time, reply to the criticisms hurled at him.
Najib was a leader who was open and believed in the democratic process, she told reporters after the meeting, which comes in the wake of criticism hurled at Najib by former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
“He is very open and accepts suggestions and criticisms. No one can deny that Najib is a leader who exercises great prudence,” she said.
Shahrizat urged those who wanted answers from Najib to remain patient and give him the opportunity to reply to all the issues raised.
She said Najib has done a lot for the country in the short time that he has helmed the nation. – BERNAMA
