OPEN LETTER TO THE PRESIDENT-ELECT Y.A.B. DATO SRI NAJIB TUN RAZAK


Y.A.B. Dato’ Sri,
Assalamualaikum WBT.

First and foremost, Praise be to Allah that finally you will be made President of UMNO come March 2009. Congratulations on winning the Presidency uncontested. Six months ago, this was almost an impossible feat. It has been a long journey on the path to Seri Perdana which in our view should have been your residence much earlier.

Dato Sri’ you will be taking over as Chief Executive of this great Nation in the most trying of times, which you are well aware of without a doubt. As Patriots, the people of Malaysia should band together and support your new team to help us all weather the storm that is to sweep past us in the coming months. We do hope you will bring fresh faces in this team that will carve the future of this blessed country of ours.

I read in your website your note of thanks to the many divisions who’ve put much trust in you, enough to give you all but one nomination for President. I’d like to humbly remind you Sir to thank also most importantly, those holding office, namely the cabinet ministers like Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Dato' Seri Utama Dr Rais Yatim, who were sincere and brave enough to air the views of the grassroots at the risk of losing their jobs for they played a very crucial role in expediting the transitional plan. Also, to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed and ironically Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and the people behind them who were involved in pressuring the sitting President to do the right thing, i.e., to give way to you by finally succumbing to the calls and announcing his withdrawal from contesting for the Presidency.

Many UMNO members believe in your leadership and understand that you were in no position to show even the slightest decent to the man who appointed you to be his number two. The people working directly under you too had their hands tied because their adversaries could’ve traced any hint of mutiny right up to your office if they even tried anything. So those who wanted to do anything to make the change had to work closely with the ones openly attacking the incumbent, and unfortunately, in doing so, they indirectly attacked you too because understandably, you were adamant in agreeing with him. Those who were holding high positions in UMNO divisions yet were out in full force backing the renegades had much to lose but they knew that it was paramount that the party had to be saved. Please do not forget their sacrifice which with the will of Allah, will enable you to enter the President’s office through the front door in March of 2009. Had they not helped the others to pressure the incumbent to withdraw, the 134 odd Divisions that had nominated you as President would have had second thoughts about it. I should know because I met many of them to check if they were willing to nominate you as President, even before the incumbent decided not to contest. We respect the original plan to transfer the power to you but didn’t have much faith in it materializing the way it should, if we had to wait till 2010.

Dato’ Sri, a lot of things went wrong these last 5 years. Some perhaps were irreparable, others quite damaging to the Malays. Rightfully, you shouldn’t have to wait another two years, neither could the Nation afford another two years of the same.

Finally Sir, please do the right thing for our religion Islam, the Malays and the Nation. Please remember always that you are President of UMNO first and foremost, then Prime Minister of Malaysia.


May Allah SWT give you Taufiq dan Hidayah in your leadership for the good of the Nation.

Wasallam.

In full allegiance to the Party & Nation,
I remain,

Tengku Putra Haron Aminurrashid Jumat
UMNO Vice Chief
Pulai Division
Johor Darul Taqzim

Salam TPJ,

If Najib is the presiden of UMNO and the Prmie Minister of Malaysia, what is Rosmah?

Rosmah would then be the wife of the President and Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Just an added note. I think to avoid confusion between who should be accorded VVIP status, wives of Cabinet members should learn from the husbands of Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz and Datuk Seri Sharizat Abdul Jalil on how to be the insignificant spouse, so the other half can work more efficiently without the ministry officials and program organisers having to fuss over them.

What say you?

Salam TPJ,

Correct! When Najib takes over eventually (God's willing) she'll be wife of the president & PM of Malaysia - that we cannot deny!
We just hope she doesn't meddle too much and solicit business in the government just like she did in mindef.
If previously she gets what she wants imagine the bird's eye view she's getting sitting from the top.
Are you going to say 'NO, please don't take that project to her? If you can, then it's Jolly Good. Even the husband wouldn't dare!!.
