Rahim Thamby Chik Willing To Contest Any Post In Umno
KUALA LUMPUR, April 12 (Bernama) -- Former Melaka Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Rahim Thamby Chik said today he was willing to contest any post in the party including the vice-president or Umno Youth chief if he had the support of grassroot members.
He said he would utilise his experience including as the former Umno Youth chief to restore and consolidate the party.
"As a member of the party, I'm willing to consider contesting any post if there is a support.
"But I've been busy with the Federation of Malay Economic Bodies (Gabem) and hadn't really gauge the support of the grassroots," he told reporters after attending a conference organised by Gabem.
Rahim, who is Gabem chairman, was also asked whether the Umno Youth leadership should be given to young leaders or to the more experienced ones.
"We are following party constitution... it's for Umno members to decide. They are the ones who will be electiong their leaders," he said.
