Khairy Jamaluddin is the new Youth chief

Khairy Jamaluddin won the much-coveted Umno Youth chief post tonight.

He bagged 304 votes and won with a majority 50 against Mohd Khir Toyo (254) and Mukhriz Mahathir (232).

In a battle touted to be between the scions of top two political families, the son-in-law of outgoing Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, has beaten Mukhriz Mahathir, the son of former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

The contest for the Umno Youth chief post was close enough for a recount of votes following objections raised by the candidates.

In his first press conference as the Youth wing chief, Khairy said that he wanted everyone to close ranks to work hard for the movement.

"We made history today where the spirit of democracy was highly practised. This reflects the maturity of this movement," he said.

He said that he was humbled by the results as he won less than 40 per cent of the votes from the 791 Youth delegates.

"It was a fierce three-cornered fight. What is most important is not the contest but for members of the wing to close ranks," he said.- Malaysiakini

Selamat Tinggal UMNO. Aku dan keluarga serta jiran-jiran tidak akan lagi sokong UMNO.
Kami tidak dapat terima Pemimpin rasuah, parti rasuah, perwakilan rasuah. Kemangan KJ menandakan UMNO kini disahkan mengidapi kanser stage 4.


Mantan Ahli UMNO.

Kemenangan Khairy menunjukkan Umno sememang korup.

Diharapkan Najib tidak akan melantik khairy di dalam rombakan kabinet.

Macam mana Khairy yang telah didapati salah kerana politik wang boleh dipilih oleh 304 orang perwakilan umno untuk memimpin pergerakan itu.

Where did these delegates put their brain? Ataupun mereka terhutang budi kpd Khairy?

He should not have been allowed to contest after having found guilty of breaching the party campaign rules.

What's wrong with the pemuda delegates?

Are they blind or what? Cant see anything but ringgit signs ONLy?

Matilah Umno.

Apa sudah jadi pada Umno? Kemenangan Khairy sebagai ketua pemuda adalah satu lagi tragedy buat Malaysia dan rakyatnya.

Bagaimana kah seorang yang dianggap perasuah telah menjadi Ketua Pemuda UMNO?

Macam mana hal ini boleh berlaku? Seorang yang dikaitkan dengan kesalahan rasuah masih boleh diangkat sebagai pemimpin?

Mana letaknya akal fikiran perwakilan pemuda?

Nampaknya, UMNO makin jatuh setelah kenaikan KJ.Dimanakah pemikiran rasional pemuda-pemuda UMNO masa kini.

I can see TS Muhammah Mohd Taib smiling from ear to ear.

Peluangnya unuk menjadi Orang Nombor 2 dalam boleh amat cerah!

Woo hoo. Kalau Khairy yang telah didapati salah kerana menggunakan wang menyogok perwakilan dalam kempennya dan diangkat sebagai pemimpin, besar kemungkinan 2M ini boleh meraih kemenangan.

What's the difference between him and KJ? Nothing.

What do they have in common? Ahh ta payah jawab.

Tapi ahli Umno tak ambil pot. Tak kisah walaupun pemimpin saperti ini akan menjahanamkan parti yang akhirnya akan dikuburkan. Amin

Wow! a person tainted by corruption can win! There is hope for the double Mohamed after all!The good news is that the most dangerous fler is out...I mean the Toyo chapie....bye-bye.The son of Mahathir would have been a better choice!

Dont know what to say kalau orang yang didapati bersalah tapi terlepas hukuman dan dilantik juga.

Sumtin' is not right with Umno.

So I wont be surprise if the unexpected happens today that:-

Mat Taib yang diketahui umum sebagai antara pemimpin Umno yang "corrupt" dan tidak berwibawa, akan dipilih sebagai Timbalan Presiden.

Amat memalukan sekiranya impian Mat Taib menjadi kenytaan.

Salam Kak Ton,
hope u sihat sentiasa.
It can only happen in Malaysia, where someone who is guilty of money politics get to be chosed as the youth leader. Just show what's the mental stage of umno youths delegates, who cannot differentiate between whats right and wrong anymore.
Nanti next, Mike Tyson pulak jadi DPM, then it'll be a gone case!
sad ain't it!
