Kubang Pasu Umno Youth Denies Approving Resolution Against Nazri

JITRA, Aug 28 (Bernama) -- The Umno Youth of the Kubang Pasu Division Monday denied approving a resolution calling for the sacking of Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz from the party and Cabinet.

Its vice-head Ismail Khamis said the division did not debate the resolution on the matter but it had come up in the resolutions of five branches that had wanted Mohamed Nazri to be sacked from Umno and two others that had called for his removal from the Cabinet.

"We never approved the resolution as published by the media," he told a press conference at the Kubang Pasu Umno office, here.

He said the movement had received many calls after the media published a report claiming that the division had approved a resolution calling for the removal of Mohamed Nazri from his positions.

Ismail said only three resolutions, on politics, the economy and religion, were debated and approved by the Kubang Pasu Umno Youth delegates meeting last Saturday.

"The issue of (Nazri's) sacking never came up. But we are not denying that there were branches that had approved such a resolution," he said.

Only five of the 96 Umno Youth branches in the Kubang Pasu Division had approved the resolution calling for the removal of Mohamed Nazri from his party position.

They were Kampung Padang Pasir, Kampung Darat, Kampung Padang Halban, Kampung Lembah Arang and Kampung Baru Batu 7.

Two more branches, Kampung Wang Perah and Taman Mahsuri, wanted Mohamed Nazri be sacked from his ministerial post, and demanded that he make a public apology to former Umno president Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The Umno Youth Branch of Kampung Belukar/Bendang Cherok approved a resolution calling for specific action against Mohamed Nazri for his rude behaviour towards Dr Mahathir.

"We received some 100 resolutions from the 96 branches, and most of them were requests," he added.

Ismail said each resolution submitted by the branches go through a screening process of a committee which would select three of the best resolutions to be debated at the divisional delegates meeting.

Asked on the status of the resolutions that touched on Mohamed Nazri's positions, he said these were subject to the decision of the Kedah Umno Youth whether it wanted to forward them to a higher level.
