GE15: Ketereh Umno division backs Ismail Sabri as next PM

KOTA BARU: The Ketereh Umno division has proposed that current party vice-president Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob be chosen as the country’s next prime minister if Barisan Nasional forms the government after the 15th General Election (GE15).

The proposal was among five resolutions put forward during the Ketereh Umno’s division meeting Friday (Oct 14) and seconded unanimously by all members.

The resolution states that the Ketereh Umno division backs the decision by the supreme council and Umno general assembly that Ismail Sabri be the candidate for premier after the GE15.

The resolution attributed this to all the initiatives under the government led by Ismail Sabri.

They include giving priority to the government’s transformation, especially the transformation of Parliament; the switch to the endemic phase; economic recovery; curbing inflation; cost of living; defending the monarchy; ensuring peace, harmony and the welfare of the people, as well as the Malaysian Family initiative through prosperity, unity and wellbeing.

The division also announced its readiness to support initiatives to continue efforts to unite the people. – Bernama
