Leave Dr M's Contributions In The Annuls Of History, Says Adnan

BUTTERWORTH, Sept 10 (Bernama) -- Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob Sunday urged Umno members to leave Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad's contributions to the nation in the annuls of the country's history and instead give their full support to the leadership of Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

He said Saturday's decision by the Kubang Pasu Umno delegates not to elect the former prime minister as a delegate to the Umno General Assembly in November was a clear signal that Dr Mahathir's era was over.

"Forget the old episode and Dr Mahathir's criticism of Pak Lah. Let us focus our efforts and support to Pak Lah so that he can implement the Ninth Malaysia Plan successfully and bring the country to greater heights," he told reporters after opening the Permatang Pauh Umno delegates conference.

Adnan said he believed Dr Mahathir would accept the Kubang Pasu delegates' verdict as it was the principle of the former Umno president to accept the delegates' decision.

"That is the decision made by the delegates. I'm confident Tun will accept it as this has been his principle all this while," said the Umno supreme council member.
