Umno must work to ensure political stability and transparency, says party veep

JOHOR BARU: Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin believes now is the time for the party to ensure political stability, administrative transparency and major changes to the Malaysian Family.

The former Johor mentri besar said he agreed and welcomed Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s suggestion on a number of things that the government must work on.

"Among those are setting up of a Royal Commission of Inquiry to investigate former attorney general Tommy Thomas’ accusation of political interference in the Attorney General’s Chambers, the enactment of anti-party hopping laws, a legitimate and transparent political funding framework, the strengthening of police and Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) institutions and the creation of a cleaner Parliament.

"All of these reforms are critical. It is not only good for the country, society and the practice of democracy in our country, but it carries with it some more important meanings," he said in a statement here on Sunday (Aug 29).

Mohamed Khaled added it would prove that Umno was a party that was serious in practising good governance and always open for improvement.

He said it would help restore the image and general perception of Umno, especially in revealing its capabilities and focus on making Malaysia a better country.

"All of these reforms will be able to separate Umno from Perikatan Nasional and Pakatan Harapan, which were previously seen as just sowing sweet promises while failing to implement all the improvements promised to the people," he added.

Mohamed Khaled said the party believed and was confident that the administration of the country, under the leadership of a Prime Minister from Umno, would bring about the changes and benefits that everyone hoped for.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob had introduced his concept of Malaysian Family, calling on MPs from both sides of the political divide to work together to help the nation recover from the Covid-19 pandemic.
