Mukhriz going for Umno Youth chief post


ALOR STAR: Jerlun MP Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir announced that he will be contesting the Umno Youth chief post if he can get enough nominations.

Mukhriz, the first to officially announce his intention to contest the post, will use the “Dare to Change” slogan as his campaign tagline.

To be eligible for the contest, a candidate needs to garner nominations from at least 20% of the 191 youth divisions. The party elections are scheduled in December.

Some 30 division youth chiefs including five from Sabah turned up to show their support for Mukhriz.

Mukhriz made the announcement at Pondok Maharizan in Titi Gajah at 3.45pm Saturday.
