GE15: Umno youth submits winnable candidate list

He said the candidates consisted of more "new and winnable faces."
According to him, the previous state elections in Johor and Melaka have proven that the candidates fielded by Umno Youth managed to woo voters, leading to Umno's victories.
"We propose candidates according to the criteria set by the party, namely 'WALI', winnable, acceptable and likeable by the people.
"We have never pushed for a 30 per cent quota for Youth candidates, but our position is that Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) must field young candidates to send out a signal that it is always revitalising and reforming the party internally," he said.
He said this at a media conference after chairing Umno Youth Exco special meeting here today.
Asyraf Wajdi also confirmed that his name was also included in the list to be scrutinised by BN chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
On another matter, the Umno Youth chief slammed the allegation purported by certain parties that Umno would drop court cases involving the party's leaders if they win and form a government after GE15. - BERNAMA
