PETALING JAYA: Umno’s candidates for prime minister and deputy prime minister will be chosen by party members around June, says Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
The former party secretary-general said Umno would choose candidates who have suitable qualifications and what it takes to shoulder the tasks of the country’s top two posts.
“Umno will choose the right candidate for the posts when the time comes,” he said in a Facebook post on Thursday (April 1).
The Ketereh MP said he took a positive view of people asking him who the prime minister and deputy prime minister candidates would be for the next general election.
“This means many still see Umno as one of the parties which should have candidates to be lead the country,” he said, adding that Umno was a party with traditions and a constitution.
He said the party constitution states that leaders are limited to a maximum of three years in party positions.
He said with the last party election held on June 30,2018, it would be due by June this year.
“As a party that upholds the rules and relies heavily on grassroots’ voices, we will not hesitate to return to the grassroots to decide on the party’s leadership,” he added.
