Choose only winnable candidates – Mahdzir Khalid

TASEK GELUGOR, Sept 1 – Umno will select winnable candidates in the 15th general election, says vice-president Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid.

He says in Kubang Pasu on Saturday, the candidates must be of the people’s favourite and not the party’s.

The Rural Development Minister also says those who lost the 14th general election should not contest again.

“Umno will take into consideration all factors this time around,” he says.

Meanwhile, Umno Treasurer Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor urges the party to do its best to quash away lies and slanders being spewn by the Opposition.

“Do it in mannered way, don’t fall into their trap,” he says.
