The decision by the Umno Supreme Council (MT) in naming its party vice-president Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob as the prime minister candidate in the 15th General Election (GE15) enabled him to restore the people’s confidence.
Ketereh Umno division leader Tan Sri Annuar Musa is also of the view that it is time for the Prime Minister to be entrusted as Barisan Nasional (BN) chairman and the BN election machinery director.
As the Prime Minister candidate, he said, Ismail Sabri should be given as much space as possible to form an administration that can bring a ‘new order’ of national politics that is fresher, cleaner, with integrity and able to restore the country.
Annuar, who Minister of Communications and Multimedia, said the decision by the Umno MT would also enable Ismail Sabri to focus and mobilise all his strength to restore the party’s strength. – MMO
