Time to bring back those sacked, suspended, says Umno youth leader

KUALA LUMPUR: Stop further division and call members who were sacked and suspended back into the Umno fold, says Kinabatangan youth chief Mohd Kurniawan Naim Moktar.

He urged the supreme council to consider allowing these members to return as they were still loyal to Umno.

“I believe many are of the same opinion as me. Let us take them back into Umno,” he said during the debate on the president's policy speech on Saturday (June 10).

He added that Umno cannot afford to be divided anymore.

In January, Umno sacked former Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin and supreme council member Tan Sri Noh Omar.

Others punished included former vice-president and Sembrong MP Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who was suspended for six years.

Former information chief Shahril Hamdan, former Johor state exco member and Tebrau division chief Datuk Maulizan Bujang and former Jempol MP Datuk Seri Mohd Salim Mohd Shariff were also suspended for six years.

Also suspended was former Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.

Umno Sabah has also suspended five of its members who threw their support behind the state’s chief minister after the 15th General Election.
