Hishamuddin supports Shafie for UMNO VP

Umno Youth chief Datuk Seri Hishamuddin Tun Hussien supports that an Umno leader from Sabah should be given votes to win one of Umno's Vice President post in the party's election next months.
Although the Education Minister did not mention any name but only one Umno leader from Sabah had obtained more than enough nominations to contest for a Vice Preisdent post in the coning election.
He is Semporna Umno's divisional head Datuk Mohd Shafie Apdal, who is an elected Supreme Council member.
Speaking to Kota Belud Umno leaders in Kota Belud, Sabah on Tuesday, he said Umno should consider a proposal to include a Sabah leader to be selected Vice-President during next month's party elections.
He commended Sabah Umno for having made valuable contributions towards strengthening the party in the interest of the nation and its people.
He said Sabah Umno had continued to remain intact and strong since the party began entrenching itself in the State, 19 years ago.
The strength of Sabah Umno should be portrayed as a fine example of unity and solidarity among the members that should be emulated by the respective divisions in the peninsula, he said.
In this respect, Deputy Prime Minister and Umno Deputy President Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would need to accorded due attention to the party's Sabah leaders for inclusion in the Supreme Council line-up, he added.
