KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 2 - Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who won the Umno presidency unopposed today, has expressed his resolve to shoulder the trust placed in him by the Umno grassroots.
The Umno deputy president and deputy prime minister said he believed the nominations reflected the confidence of the grassroots in the transition plan he had formulated with Prime Minister and Umno president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
“I resolve to shoulder this trust and responsibility to the best of my ability to tackle all the challenges faced by Umno and Barisan Nasional.
“I am thankful for and touched by the trust which has been translated into nominations by the 134 divisions signalling my victory unopposed as the president of Umno,” he said in his 1Malaysia.com.my website.
Najib said he hoped that the ongoing election process would proceed in a clean and orderly manner.
“Let’s work together to carry forward the noble struggle for the sake of religion, the people and nation,” he said. -
