Let things calm down first, says Azlan

KANGAR: Perlis Umno liaison chairman Datuk Seri Azlan Man (pic) says he will wait for the situation in the party in the state to calm down before he can start working with all divisional leaders.

Azlan, who is Perlis Mentri Besar, said he was taking such an approach to prevent the situation from getting worse and was ready to work with even those who rejected his appointment as state Umno chief.

“Wait for the situation to calm down first and I will find the best way so that we can sit and work together.

“I take an open attitude as I do not have a vindictive nature, let alone be hostile to anyone, ” he said at the breaking of fast with Kangar Umno on Monday.

On Sunday, Bernama reported that Arau Umno and its Puteri wing rejected Azlan’s appointment to replace Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim and urged Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi to return the post to Shahidan.

Azlan, who is also the Kangar Umno chief, said although Arau and Padang Besar divisions issued a statement rejecting his appointment, it did not reflect the real situation at the grassroots level.

“The ones who could not accept the decision were the division chiefs... just let the situation calm down first and I am sure it will improve after this, ” he said.

He added that there was no political crisis in Perlis as alleged by some, and it was instead just a different approach used by political leaders in the state. — Bernama
