UMNO must change, says Razaleigh

Ku Li, who has offered to contest Abdullah Badawi in Umno's elections this December, says with Anwar Ibrahim's victory in Permatang Pauh and Barisan Nasional's defeat in the Prime Minister's own home state, "What scraps of credibility the Prime Minister and his Deputy had left after March 8 are gone".

Read Ku Li's scathing statement here.

Dear Tengku Li,
What you have said is correct, however we need to point out a few facts:
1. UMNO can stay as it is, the Government must be changed. UMNO is corrupted to the core and will never change (advice resign from umno and join PKR)
2. PM has no credibility since Mar 8, there was nothing left then and nothing left now.
3. UMNO needs to get rid of Najib before he brings further damage to umno, there might be mass defection because he is hated by every member.
4. MohdX2 must be brought to justice for money laundering, umno may gain some respect from that.

Good luck to you Tengku if you think umno can change, just as a leopard, umno will not change it's spots.

pak lah has to go. Go now. Say Tak Nak to Pak lah. Say yes to Rais Yatim, Ku Li and Tan Sri Muhyiddin.

KuLi is stating the obvious.
UMNO is rotten to the core and should dissolve itself!
Even the Malays voted for PKR, who were promoting multi-racial unity, which shows that even the Malays are fed up with race based politics!
Good riddance to garbage!

Tengku Razaleigh
Is a Johnny-come-lately.

We have known this all along, and we have known all along what he says about UMNO needing change. Old news!

What Tengku Razaleigh talks about though is change in leadership, but he is avoiding talking about change in UMNO's entire philosophy and approach!

Until this is also changed, its a slow slide into the 'kubur' for UMNO.

Wake up, UMNO. Race-based politics and crony-based politics are dead.

UMNO doesn't want any changes, they just want to keep the status quo going on for as long as possible. But that's okay, the rakyat can choose another party which will provide the changes the rakyat want.

"What scraps of credibility do Pak Lah and Najib have left?"

NONE. But then, even before Permatanag Pauh, they already had none in my eyes to start of with.

PP only served to reinforce and confirm that the two are has-beens holding on to power without moral authority. Just look at the desparate dirty tactics.

So UMNO must change. Cannot agree more with Ku Li.

But not only UMNO, but also the whole bag of lousy BN component parties, and BN itself. To quote an ex-MCA hot-shot who must surely have had deep inside knowledge, a fish starts to rot from the head.

Junk the rotten fish heads. Scrap the entrenched you-scratch-my-back, I scratch-yours patronage systems that played no small roles in dragging the parties and the nation so deeply into sticking muck.

Back to the pure roots of truly fighting for the people, and not just certain people, and certainly not selected cronies in billion ringgit chunks.

As for UMNO, perhaps back to Semangat 46?

pancaroba said...

yes,UMNO must change but change with working together and not just keep talking and talking.by just talking will get us nowhere.

so,Anwar has won the by-election.big deal.it has been predicted before that he would win it easily.

all Malaysians are eager and awaiting what is next from Anwar in his journey to form the new govt and become the next PM.

Assalamualaikum wbk,

Dear Bro Rocky,

The defeat of BN is the mistake of UMNO Goons in MT, UMNO Branches, Division, Pemuda, and Puteri who are blindly supported to PAK LAH, KJ n Najib. I dont think BN especially UMNO can win majority in the election anymore if these two goons still the PM and DPM of Malaysia.

The man who can become a saviour to save UMNO & BN is either KU LI or Muhyiddin (except if he got a scandal). If Anwar become the PM, and PR become the government, I will not blame rakyat because the trend nowdays is rakyat is so desperate to ousted Pak Lah and Najib to lead this nation.

Happy Merdeka and Happy Ramadhan to all.

clearwater said...

Umno must change but will it be allowed to? So much has been invested by the incumbents to maintain a corrupt system of divide, rule and plunder. So much arrogance, insensitivity and self absorbtion have been displayed. The system is now falling apart. The reform agenda was neglected by current leaders, it may be too late now. The people have an alternative to Umno-BN and they are prepared to give PR a chance to do good. A spell in the Opposition benches is probably what Umno-BN needs in order to reform.

Anonymous said...

UMNO is going down in the toilet! That's for sure. Somehow I think this is what Pak Lah has in mind from the very beginning. He wants to destroy the new UMNO when he joined back to the fold after the court declared UMNO null and void as a party. Mahathir thought it was a good idea to bring the former Semangat people to the new UMNO, including people PL and Ku Li. Haha..Mahathir made a big mistake!!! Bye and so long UMNO!

punk said...

it's a written rule in the world that there will always be loser and gainer in a contest.

both BN and PKR have to look beyond their losing and winning respectively.they must learn on why they receive such fate.

BN have to work harder and more transparent since the news about corruption has always been the main issues being brought up by the opposition.they have to go more to the ground and prove to the public that they're still trustworthy.

Pakatan Rakyat on the other hand had to prove to the public they can merge as a solid govt if they want to rule the country.prove that they can do better than the govt and not just saying everything the govt does is a conspiracy.

caravanserai said...

UMNO was given a second chance
UMNO blew it hard on its face
Now the old veterans wanted change
Yet the core racist values remain

It isn’t the right way
Forever harping on malay supremacy
We are Malaysians, period I say
UMNO founder knew it
Sadly he was bundled away

UMNO must open its doors
To all races willing to participate
Cast off its racial sentiments
We must be colored blind in our unity perspective
Otherwise UMNO has to kiss its life goodbye

As it currently stands
UMNO will be history
The Rakyat will make it so
Unless it opens its doors
To all Malaysians

Sdr Rocky's Bru,

Anwar's stunning victory after more than a decade of hiatus will almost certainly spell further problem for the beleaguered Abdullah.

He will now face greater challenge at Umno’s December election. Or will he?

There are bound to be fresh calls for him to step down as Umno president and Prime Minister.

There may even be enough divisional nominations for Tengku Razaleigh to challenge him.

The mood today is "anybody is ok as long as not Abdullah."

But we need good leaders, not just in Umno, but in all perties.

But for now, anger and hatred rule. The people are angry with the government and they hate government leaders.

As for Abdullah, he knows that his position in the government and Umno is no longer tenable.

But he stays on at the behest of his political and corporate allies who need more time to tie loose ends and make exit plans.

If he goes now, many will fall and even become bankrupt. But most will leave the country with their hefty private assets.

The choices are obvious. If he stays on, Umno and BN will die. If he leaves, there's a chance that Umno and BN can be revived but not with the current line-up.

Ku Li and Rais Yatim are Umno's best bet. But money talks.

Thank you.

all leader of umno must resign!!!!

they are the one that gain DEB policy - they are the one that become millionaire. so even ku li also must resign from the post. These are the leader that we call SATAN - in front of malaysian, promise and promise. In side their room, make money for themselve. In the end, we suffer!!!

So how, khir toyol, mike tyson, najib, kj - are you willing to resign!!!

UMNO must undergo true reform
(like the Taiwanese Guomindang) or
it will become the party of the
corrupt, the racists and the foolish.

More and more Malay voters are moving to PKR and PAS. When are the UMNO leaders going to learn?

I must agree with this oldman, Pak Lah and Co has to go. But he seems to miss something here.. The corruption in AMNO is too big and deep so AMNO has to go.. As for MIIC and MCCA, U guys got to go too by selling out of your members and principle.. Samy and Ong, u guys can talk bulls**t to your people but the reality is that you sell on your own people.. You guys did nothing when AMNO was secretly having talk with PAST, when AMNO pursuit their faint dream of "ketuan Melayu".. It seems that you guys have your balls held tightly by the racist AMNO.. Well stay put with the sinkin' AMNO..

As for DSAI hope you won't dissappoint the RAKYAT cause remember this "we put you there"..
Do what is best for Malaysians not only for one race..

YBM Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah : " They demand leadership that can be trusted to unite our people, to restore confidence in our institutions, and forge a clear national direction."


- What is the difference between one UMNO leader to the Other Umno leader?

- little difference, just superficial change only.

DSAI will make a new Malaysia for Malaysians. We don't need BN no more.

these UMNO idiots are really a world class moron. in the face of such defeat they still have the guts to say something good about themselves and blame just ONE guy.

hello .... we malaysians think that UMNO/BN is a bloody corrupt and racist organisation right down to the core. that is the reason you lost and will continue to loose.

this country no longer need to be govern by racist policies and runned by corrupt politicians and cronies. we need to mover forward.

whether you blame the PM or not it really does not matter because come Sept 16 or next GE, you guys will no longer be government. frankly, I don't even think you will get 1/3 of the parliment seats in the next GE.

you guys better start packing bags and that advice specially goes to the MCA. As for MIC, never mind lar, your party is absolutely hopeless which is the same with Gerakan, PPP, and all the other pathetic component parties.

Why bother to change UMNO? It is irrelevant. Why bother to renovate a house which is due for demolition?

yes agree with you crackdollah ... its not melayu or islam or umno pantang dicabar ...

today its MALAYSIAN/PEOPLE PANTANG DICABAR !!!! by any political party or personnel.

The people give you the power to take care of the national interest for the benefit of everyone not just one race or one religion.

this country got no time or resource to be blundered on such thing anymore when the rest of the countries are racing pass us.

RAKYAT PANTANG DICABAR!

i don't think Tengku Razaleigh's call would take hold.

They are all so deep into their chicaneries it would be suicide to change now. The domino effect would be too devastating.

Let them trip over themselves and implode.

azlan said...

yes,UMNO must change.definitely.that change doesnt necessarily anyone must step down.

If people in UMNO want to change,they must change on their attitude and how they work.they must earn back trust and respect from the public.they've stayed for 51 years now and if they want to survive for more years than they must take measures to fix what are already broken.

UMNO (Baru) must purge itself. There's no other way. There is too much filth accumulated from 1988 to now.

I just hope that there are still good men/women left in UMNO to perform this dirty job. The son and SIL must be the first to go.

UMNO do not need to change as it is main for the museum. You cannot change the fact that UMNO produces the most corrupt PM Tun Dr. M that bring 22 of the darkest year. You cannot change the fact of AP queen, Zaikaria Satay House and a lot more corrupt leaders. The party is death and history. Togehter with MCA and MIC the three racist party is history where we learn our lesson from.

FOLKS all of you have got it wrong
Paklah should stay and that way umno will sink faster and di-perkuburkan. Why you fellas being mean to poor Pak lah, whatever his faults he is still better than najib binti rosmah. Do you want to see an adulterer (pd), corrupt, (sukhoi-submarine-lumut naval vehicles-national service-C4) COME TO POWER. I would rather Pak lah stay and CAPTAIN AND helm the UMNO TITANIC SHIP into the rocks, so that no survivors will be found. SO to all you folks support PAK LAH, SO THAT WE CAN CHANG THE GOVT. FASTER.

Everyone must keep eyes peeled and ears sharp for liquidation of assets and movement of funds by cronies and politicians. It's going to happen.

Also if someone knows about what has been going round regarding the tourism minister's role in the downfall of the tourism dg, let the evidence also surface.

The problem is UMNO members got no balls to vote for change.

A man like Tunku Razaleigh who can team up with his greatest enemy..and co-operate with the devil..to put all blame on Dollah is doing all these for selfish reasons.
Anwar is constant and sincere for 10 years.
That's why Malaysians love and trust Anwar.
Ralaleigh have no backbone and obviously lost all his bearings...focusing how to become PM ...with no sense of proportions and realities in life anymore.

read this blog, pekida mengamuk dipematang pauh.

So at the end, it is all about money for BN especially umno! So when they fight for race especially for pekida people, they are fighting for their own money. That why people always say that person that have position in umno, will benefit from the DEB policy. How about me and the rest of malays?
