NAJIB'S SPEECH TO UNITE UMNO
POLITICAL analyst Prof Dr Sivamurugan Pandian said Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak's speech at the party annual general assembly was meant to unite party members and focus on their internal problems. He added the speech was to ensure there were no enemies within Umno and to strengthen the part's main core beliefs – remembering the party's initial struggle and belief in Islam. On Najib's warning that the rights and status of Islam and the Malays would be undermined if DAP comes into power, Sivamurugan said perhaps the statement was used as an instrument to also unite its members. He was speaking on the sidelines of the assembly held at Putra World Trade Centre yesterday.
