KUALA LUMPUR, March 25 – All 14 Kelantan Umno division chiefs yesterday signed the Kelantan Declaration to demonstrate their undivided support for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s leadership. Umno Information chief Tan Sri Annuar Musa said the declaration was signed by Gua Musang member of Parliament Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah during a meeting between the Kelantan UMNO and Najib, which lasted about two hours at the Parliament building, here.
“The declaration was later handed over to the Prime Minister by the state UMNO liaison chairman Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed. All the elected representatives including Senate members from Kelantan attended the meeting and handed over the Kelantan Declaration, which was launched last week during a people-gathering in Kelantan to express unwavering support to Najib. We have decided to sign a document intended to give full support to the Prime Minister,” he said.
It was reported that about 10,000 people of Kelantan had gathered in the compounds of the Kota Bharu UMNO building on Saturday to express undivided support to Najib as the party president and reject the Mahathir Declaration led by former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Annuar said besides the handing over of the declaration, several issues concerning the people of Kelantan were also discussed with the Prime Minister during the meeting.
