More than 50 members of Perak Umno have been identified for sabotaging a party in GE15
IPOH: Perak Umno has identified more than 50 members who sabotaged the party by engaging in various misconduct including campaigning for the opposing party during the 15th general election.
Datuk Seri Saarani Mohamad, the chairman of the Perak Umno Liaison Committee, said of the figure that 17 people have been released from Larut Umno division, while others, including those from other divisions, are being investigated before further action is taken.
“Some are not opposition candidates, proponents or supporters, but during election season they are aware of whether they are speaking or carrying the opposition flag or campaigning on behalf of the opposition.
“In this regard, we sent a report to the Disciplinary Committee (Umno) at the state and also at central level and some of them were dismissed. We’ll wait for the rest, as the party executive announced,” he said here today.
He commented on yesterday’s media report that acts of self-sabotage were identified as one of the main factors in Umno’s heavy defeat in Perak during GE15 after he led state level Women’s Day celebrations in Perak.
Meanwhile, Saarani said he was satisfied with the way yesterday’s Umno elections in Perak went.
“There was no serious excitement and the Umno Electoral Committee (JPU) did a good job, in fact most of them used the March 11 experience to improve.
“So I hope that those elected will be grateful, appreciative and determined to do good service. If you don’t make it, don’t give up, don’t sulk, don’t sabotage the party, because if you want to contribute, we can contribute in any situation,” he said. -Bernama
