Muhyiddin: I won't run

Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said he had no intention to contest the two top posts in the party's election in December.

He said whatever statements he made before were to voice the views that he had gathered at grassroots level.

"I want to sincerely help the party and have no intention to compete for the top posts," he said after attending a two-hour meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Selangor Umno leaders yesterday.

Previously, Muhyiddin was reported as saying that Umno would fade away (read here) if immediate changes were not made to the leadership.

The international trade and industry minister had said the general election results showed the people's misgivings about the party leadership.

I dont give a fcuking shit whether you gonna conttest or run away for that matter.

To me, Umno is irrelevent. The party is dying. No amount of reform can help resuscitate it.

Wht's the point of changing its leaders when the whole system is rotten to the core.
