Wanita UMNO: Kamilia dares Shahrizat

Kuala Kangsar Wanita UMNO chief Datuk Kamilia Ibrahim has openly and clearly opened a challenge to Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil.

"She has until March to decide if she is contesting against me for the No 2 post or against Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz for the No 1 post," she said. "I have made up my mind. If she (Shahrizat) wants to hold on to the number two post, then she will have to face me."

Kamilia, a Wanita Umno executive committee member, said she had never recognised the transition plan. She also said she had not been in contact with Rafidah or Shahrizat since the movement's exco meeting on Monday.

"Let both of them decide for themselves. I have not been in contact with them.

"I don't see the need to do so. One must remember, this (transition) is not about individuals, it's about party members," she said.

On Rafidah's insistence to lead the movement until June despite calls for an earlier change in leadership, Kamilia said this was probably due to her personality.

"It's very difficult to say and perhaps due to that particular person's personality," Kamilia said.
