Loyalty To Party, Leadership: Key Factor To UMNO's Strength - Hamisa

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 7 (Bernama) -- Tanjong Batu assemblyman Datuk Hamisa Samat regarded the policy speech by UMNO president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak at the party's general assembly as a serious reminder for members to give their undivided loyalty to the party and its leaders.

She said loyalty to leaders and the party struggle was the key factor for UMNO's strength in facing the 14th general election, to be held soon.

She said UMNO members should appreciate the president's speech which emphasised the various challenges and attacks by the opposition that the party would face in the run-up to the 14th general election.

"The emphasis by the president on 'wala' (loyalty) should be understood and appreciated by party delegates and leaders at all levels, and also the grassroots," she said.

She was commenting on the policy speech by Najib at the 2017 UMNO General Assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre today.

"We abide by the decision of the party leadership on the selection of candidates for GE14. What is important, the candidates are acceptable to the people," she said.
