shahrizat-jalilShe said Wanita Umno, now led mostly by young leaders, should not forget the contributions and dedication of the older leaders because they have ideas and broader experience.

“I will not have any elderly leaders be made fun of by the younger ones because of their vast experience and service. The experienced and matured have also got a place in Umno. Never set aside the old leaders.

“The structure of Umno is already stable, Puteri will look after the young, we (women) will look after the middle aged and elderly,” she told reporters after a Merdeka Raya Semarak Kasih Celebration here Sunday.

Meanwhile, Terengganu Wanita Umno has agreed to give full support to Shahrizat, who faces two challengers in the party elections in October.

Terengganu Umno Wanita chief Datuk Fatimah Hamat said the support was based on Shahrizat’s ability and effectiveness to spearhead the movement.
