Umno concluded its 71st annual general assembly on December 9.
What is its significance to the rakyat?
How can the rakyat benefit?
Let us take a look.
Umno general assembly was well organised
Everybody could see that the Umno general assembly was well organised.
The proceedings went smoothly starting from the debates among party members and state division leaders.
It then continued to the speeches by vice presidents and deputy presidents.
Eventually the party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak gave his keynote address.
This decorum is important to show that Umno is a well oiled machine.
A well oiled machine is important to ensure a smooth administration of the country.
A country that is well managed will benefit the rakyat.
No contest between number one and number two
During the assembly, party members unanimously voted that there will be no contest between number one and number two.
What this means is that all Umno members want Datuk Seri Najib to remain president.
And Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi remain as number two.
This is to ensure that the party remains united and there will be no infighting among members.
When there is no bickering among members, the party will be one dynamic force.
Umno has kept 97.6 percent of its promises in the 13th general elections
During every general elections, many political parties make promises to the rakyat.
However, not all the promises are kept.
Umno and Barisan Nasional however, kept 97.6 percent of its promises.
Federal Territory delegate Datuk Rizalman Mokhtar said since Datuk Seri Najib Razak took over in 2009, the country has seen much transformation taking place in the economic, social and political fronts.
Umno and Barisan Nasional completed 17 initiatives and 156 strategic initiatives.
Umno is a party which keep its promises.
Umno wings the Wanita, Pemuda and Puteri are united
Umno wings the Wanita, Pemuda and Puteri are all united.
This is unlike other parties which are always bickering among each other.
Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia for example.
Its youth and Srikandi are still not in order.
Unity among the party wings are very important to ensure a solid front.
A united Umno will bring the country forward and will benefit the rakyat.
Umno is not racist
In his keynote address, Datuk Seri Najib said Umno is not racist.
Proof that Umno is not racist can be seen from the measures it has taken to over the years to boost the wellbeing of other races such as the Chinese and the Indians.
If Umno is racist, it will not be able to work well with other component party members under Barisan Nasional such as MCA and MIC.
Umno key to progress in many states
Umno has always been the political party which brings progress and development to the country and the states.
In Sabah, Semporna Umno Information Chief Datuk Ramlee Marahaban said Umno has been bringing development to Sabah for the past 27 years.
Among the development include the Pan Borneo highway which will bring immense economic benefits to the state and the people.
Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak meanwhile said highspeed broadband penetration at households has reached 81.8 percent in the country.
This is proof that Umno has brought many progress to the country and the rakyat.
Umno has seven manifestoes that it will implement for the rakyat
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid said Umno has seven manifestoes that it will implement for the rakyat.
The manifestoes encompass politics, economy, education, national security, international relations, the sovereignty of the Sultans and the Yang Di-Pertuan Agung and to uphold Islam.
No other party but Umno is capable of implementing all the manifestoes towards the betterment of the rakyat.
Umno is the best party for the rakyat
Umno together with Barisan Nasional is the best alliance to win the upcoming general elections.
Malaysia needs a united party to administer the country forward.
Pakatan Harapan cannot rule Malaysia when its own house is not in order.
A stable Umno will ensure a stable Barisan Nasional.
A stable Barisan Nasional will ensure a stable Malaysia.
When the country is stable, the rakyat will be able to live in peace earning an income for their families.
