Apple polishers are at it again. Perak UMNO youth chief, Zainol Padzi Paharudin, says Khairi has shown leadership traits, a man of caliber, and a loyal deputy to the Keris carrier. Khairi is in the doldrums, neither here or there, and the majority of UMNO members point a finger at him for the election debacle. In fact the silence he has imposed on himself, is clear proof he is not good as a leader. Hishamuddin had a reputation of being notorious, his keris action is hard to forget. As for Khairy, he is the author of Badawi’s downfall, which I think UMNO will not forget.

No Objection To Khairi Contesting Umno Youth Chief Post – Khir

SHAH ALAM, April 9 (Bernama) — Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo said Wednesday he had no objection to Umno Youth vice-chief Khairy Jamaluddin vying for the top post in the movement in December.
“Umno is a democratic party. We can offer ourselves for the post, it’s up to members to choose whom they feel should be given the mandate to rehabilitate the party,” Dr Mohamad Khir told a press conference here Wednesday.
The former Selangor menteri besar was commenting on remarks made by Negeri Sembilan Umno Youth chief Datuk Jamlus Aziz that Khairy was the best candidate to replace Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussien as the movement’s leader.
So far only Dr Mohamad Khir and Jerlun MP Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir had annnounced that they would go for the Umno Youth chief post.
Commenting on calls that he should give close attention to Selangor politics rather than contesting the post, Dr Mohamad Khir said the new Selangor Umno liaison committee chairman Tan Sri Muhammad Muhamad Taib was entrusted with the responsibility, although he would continue to assist him.
Dr Mohamad Khir said he felt that his experience would put him in good stead to bring the youths closer to the top leadership as there was a big gap between them.
He said more dialogues with the youths should be held to enable them to voice their pent-up feelings.
Claiming that his blog has received 160,000 comments, he said most of them wanted Umno to listen to them with an open heart.
In IPOH, Perak Umno Youth chief Zainol Padzi Paharudin said he agreed with Jamlus that Khairy was the best candidate to lead the movement as he had shown the leadership traits in his present capacity.
Zainol Padzi said Khairy had proven that he was a leader of calibre, and an effective and loyal deputy to Hishammuddin.
“It will be a waste of his talents if it is not nurtured and polished,” he said in a statement Wednesday.
Zainol Padzi said Khairy had proven his capability and leadership ability when he led the Umno election machinery in several by-elections, put his skills to good use in thwarting criticisms and did not cow under pressure.
As Khairy had cultivated rapport with Umno Youth divisions, Zainol Padri said the Umno Youth vice-chief would be able to forge closer relationship with the grassroots.
“Khairy is courageous and ferocious in defending the New Economic Policy and Malay rights in line with Umno Youth principles and struggles,” said Zainol Padzi.
