Ku Li offers to rehabilitate Umno

MYT 10:12:39 PM

KOTA BARU: Veteran Umno leader Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has offered to rehabilitate the party following its stunning losses in the general election and this includes contesting for the party presidency.

He said he was willing to offer his services and it is up to the party members to determine.

“I am just a normal member now. I am ready to serve if my services are needed,” he told newsmen at his home Wednesday.

He has returned to chair his Gua Musang Umno division meeting where members are expected to pass a resolution seeking division and national-level extraordinary general meetings (EGMs).

The EGMs will seek to discuss the party’s dismal showing in the polls and its future.

Asked if he would contest the top post if there were adequate nominations from the divisions, Tengku Razaleigh, or as he is affectionately called Ku Li, said he was ready as he was still fit.

“Now, I am old but still fearless.”
