Mat Taib says Umno men warned not to nominate him
“I received information that party members who wanted to nominate several aspiring candidates, including myself, have been threatened and their nominations blocked.
“There were cases where nominations were suddenly closed prematurely, while members in other places received threats after they nominated certain candidates. I was also rumoured to have withdrawn my candidacy,” he said, adding that some members were warned that they would be in trouble if he managed to secure enough nominations for the post.
“It will be difficult for aspiring Umno
candidates if certain people continue to intimidate or threaten to block nominations during party elections,” Muhammad told reporters at his office at Parliament House yesterday.
He declined to name the Umno divisions or the persons involved.
Mohamad son of Mohamad by now should realize even majority umnoputras rejected him.
