Assembly Invite For Dr M, Umno Veterans, Says Husainay

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 19 (Bernama) -- Former Prime Minister and ex-Umno president Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will be invited to attend the Umno General Assembly on Nov 13.

Umno executive secretary Datuk Husainay Hashim said the invitation from party secretary-general Datuk Seri Radzi Sheikh Ahmad had been sent to Dr Mahathir and Umno veterans.

"We're inviting Tun (Dr Mahathir) and other Umno veterans. If the invitation card has not reached them yet, it is in the mail," he told reporters after handing a RM10,000 cheque from Umno to the Baitul Ummah Orphanage in Taman Setapak Indah.

Baitul Ummah, operating since 2004, is raising funds to build a RM45,000 hostel for 60 orphans.

As the former Umno president, Husainay said Dr Mahathir would be seated in a special place in the front row at Dewan Merdeka of the Putra World Trade Centre, the assembly venue, he said.

He said assembly preparations were progressing smoothly and the Umno headquarters was making the final touches to receive special invited guests delegates.

Dr Mahathir said in Jitra Wednesday he would attend the assembly if invited.
