Najib also commented on the appointments to the supreme council, which is listed above.
He said the party’s vice-presidents were qualified to be appointed as state liaison chiefs.
He said if they were qualified to be elected as vice-presidents they would surely be qualified to become Umno state liaison chiefs.
This is the first time the three party vice-presidents were also made to lead Umno at the state level.
They are Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein (Terengganu), Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (Penang) and Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal who is now the Kedah head.
On whether this was because there were no better candidates for the posts, he said:
“It was based on my considerations. As I feel there is a need to appoint our vice-presidents, so I appointed them.”
