The Umno deputy president said that Khairy, who is also the Health Minister, was a young leader of calibre and good for the country, and of course, Umno did not want him to “disappear” just like that.

“We are trying to find a suitable constituency for him to contest in GE15,” he told reporters after officiating the Rembau Umno delegates meeting here Sunday (Oct 16).

Earlier, at the same meeting, Khairy, who is also Rembau Umno deputy chief, in his closing speech, said that he had given the Rembau parliamentary seat to Mohamad to contest in GE15.

“That’s the family spirit in Rembau, we are ‘beradat’ (civilised). Alhamdulillah, we will make sure that the machinery in Rembau is further improved, and there will be no more Rembau seat issues,” said Mohamad, who is also Rembau Umno chief.

Regarding Sunday’s delegates meeting, Mohamad, who is also Barisan Nasional (BN) deputy chairman, said that Umno needed to focus on some areas that suffered narrow defeats in GE14.

“We are not talking about the seat target, our target is to win so we must win more than 112 seats in GE15 in order to form a government.

“If possible we would like to win more seats, all the better, and the areas that we narrowly lost (in GE14) need to be given more focus by the leadership,” he said. – Bernama
