ALL delegates debating the three resolutions to be tabled at the Umno general assembly have been told to refrain from using harsh words, especially if they are directed at any particular person.

Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak also reminded them to follow decorum and never use the platform to make snide remarks on other individuals or other parties.

He issued the reminder during a closed-door meeting with the proposers, seconders and resolution debaters yesterday.

The resolution on the presidential address would be proposed by Datuk Razali Ibrahim from Johor while the resolution on the economy would be proposed by Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah from Pahang. The resolution on religion and education would be proposed by Mohd Nizar Zakaria from Perak.

Najib also told those speaking to be concise in their debates so as not to waste time.

During the debates, the speakers are expected to acknowledge that the leadership transition was put in place for love for the party.

It is also understood that the time allotted to each debater has been shortened while the meeting on Friday will be extended to 11pm.

This is to enable the assembly to close by noon on Saturday so that leaders and members could travel to Bukit Gantang, Bukit Selambau and Batang Ai for the nomination day for the by-elections there on Sunday.
