Look like the ladies in Umno are more ‘lelaki’ then the men. At least that’s the message they trying to convey today, where Shahrizat after months of speculation finally ‘lelaki’ enough to announce she will fight her boss for Wanita Umno chief post.

The announcement ended speculation as to whether Shahrizat, the movement’s vice-head, would abide by the power transition plan of Wanita Umno chief Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz to hand over the post to her (Shahrizat) next June or contest the No.1 post in the party elections.

The two-paragraph announcement by Shahrizat as reported by Malaysiakini ended the speculation Shahrizat will blindly follow power transition plan initiated by Rafidah.

“Wanita Umno must be united in strengthening the party and be bold in bringing about change and renewal,” she said.

As on Wednesday, Shahrizat has received 73 nominations to contest the post of Wanita Umno chief. Incumbent Rafidah has garnered 117 nominations.
