sakmongkol | ….The blogger Dato Ron, a former MP for Parit Sulong in Johore urges branch leaders to fully understand the UMNO constitution. I am sad to inform Dato Ron that UMNO branch leaders nor the members hardly read the UMNO constitution. It’s sad but true, even the division rep sent to oversee the branch meeting has never read the UMNO constitution. They do carry around the rules and regulations of branch meetings (Tatacara Dan Peraturan Mesyuarat) – the do’s and don’ts of meeting. That is a poor substitute to infer awareness of the UMNO constitution.
I myself have never read it and have never seen one in the Pekan UMNO division. I doubt very much, whether the division secretary with an academic level of an SPM dropout is aware of this important document. Dato Ron himself may have read it during his retirement phase of active politics.( sorry Ron, I stand corrected).
Therefore to urge branch leaders to leverage the provisions of the UMNO constitution places too high a hope on these wretched fellows. Most of the branch leaders are just looking at ways to extend their tenure as leaders. We can’t expect much either from UMNO divisions. Divisions will most likely follow the dictates of their respective division heads. ... selanjutnya.
