KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today revealed the secret about the deeds and contributions made by his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, in helping the people.He said many were unaware that Rosmah had played significant roles in two incidents concerning the operation to bring home Malaysian students from Egypt, dubbed Operasi Piramid,during the Egypt’s uprising a couple of years ago.In the first incident, he said Rosmah had played a major role in the release of a Malaysian student who was arrested and jailed by the Egyptian authority after being accused of being a spy.“I asked my wife to call the wife of (former) President Hosni Mubarak, Suzanne Mubarak, and request for our student to be released. Within two hours, the student was released,” said Najib, who is Umno president, in his adjournment speech at the 2013 Umno General Assembly here today.Commenting further, Najib said during the operation, there was insufficient number of flights to bring the Malaysian students home, hence the need to use special flights via Jeddah.“At that time, we had to ask the Saudi Arabian government to allow the Charlie aircraft carrying our students to land in Jeddah before leaving to Kuala Lumpur without visas.“That was a big request, but through her networking with the royal family, the Saudi Arabian government gave its consent,” he said.In fact, the prime minister said the Saudi Arabian government also prepared two Boeing 747 flights to bring the Malaysian students home.“These were among my wife’s contributions to the people of Malaysia,” he said.Najib also said that Rosmah had also become a target of criticisms, especially among those who wanted to criticise him.In her capacity as the prime minister’s wife, Rosmah had also played a major role in improving early education for children through the Permata programme, he added. – BERNAMADatin Seri Rosmah Mansor (right) reacts when her husband and Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak paid a tribute to her contributions to the country during the winding up speech at Umno General Assembly. second right is the wife of deputy Umno president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, Puan Sri Noorainee Abdul Rahman: BERNAMARead more: Rosmah also plays significant roles in helping people, says Najib – Latest – New Straits Timeshttp://www.nst.com.my/latest/rosmah-also-plays-significant-roles-in-helping-people-says-najib-1.425188#ixzz2mnVgadVx***************
It was in explained in his the Seventh UMNO President’s closing speech, in front of over 2,500 delegates in Dewan Merdeka. The event was also televised lived over RTM1, TV3 and Bernama TV.
We were told that Foreign Minister Dato’ Seri Anifah Aman did share his thoughts privately to friends of retiring from the Cabinet. It was made to understand that the job is very high strung and demanding.
It is not a mystery since Anifah has been known amongst the civil servants and career diplomats within Wisma Putra for his dedication and intense working schedule.
If Anifah eventually retire before this Parliamentary term ends by 14GE, expected somewhere within the next four years, a replacement candidate is sought and propped. Probably Prime Minister Najib would seriously consider appointing Rosmah as a Senator and present to His Majesty Seri Paduka Yang DiPertuan Agong that she is made the Foreign Minister.
Her talent and international high level network is definitely an asset.
After all, Anifah as the Foreign Minister managed to prop up Malaysia’s position and role in the international politics and diplomacy scene and translate Prime Minister Najib’s aspiration very well and effectively. Rosmah would be a befitting personality to carry on where Anifah left of. -bigdogdotcom
The prime minister said the Umno constitution would also be amended to fine tune the party's election process.
"We will state in no uncertain terms on Islam upheld by Ahli Sunnah Wal Jamaah (followers of the Sunni sect) in the Umno Constitution," he said in his adjournment speech at the 2013 Umno General Assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur today.
Clause 3.3 of the Umno Constitution states that Umno upholds, defends and propagates the official religion of Islam and respects the constitutional rights of non-Muslims to freedom of religion.
Najib said the decision was made after consultation with Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Supreme Council member on religious affairs Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom on the outcome of the debate.
Speaking at a news conference later, Najib said Umno would hold a special general assembly next year to amend the party's constitution.
Asked whether the Federal Constitution will also be amended to redefine Islam, he said many processes had to be observed before such an amendment could be made.
"We have to go through the discussion process first, we need to get a two-thirds majority (in Parliament), and we need the support of the Conference of Malay Rulers," he said.
Touching on party polls in his speech, Najib said the Umno Supreme Council would deliberate on recommendations gathered from divisions on ways to improve the election process.
"I think in principle, the election process is good but the conditions are too loose. We do not want them to be too stringent or too loose, just in between," he said. - Bernama
Umno president and Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has warned chief executive officers (CEOs) of government-linked corporations (GLCs) that the empowerment of the bumiputera entrepreneurs is a key part of the national agenda and failure to comply with this would affect their posts when their performance is evaluated at the end of the year.
He said he has made it a point that this matter will be included in the report, or score, cards for the CEOs of all GLCs.
“Let me say that we are committed to the demands sought by the party in this (giving more bumiputera entrepreneurs an opportunity to benefit) from the GLCs.
“I have met and hold meetings with all CEOs of GLCs. I told them that the empowerment of the bumiputera is a national agenda and all of them being CEOs are required to implement it to the best of their ability.
“We will have a key performance indicator (KPI) to ensure this agenda is implemented and this shows our determination,” Najib said in his winding-up speech.
Najib warned that at the end of each year, he would examine the score card of the CEOs.
“If it is good then we will extend (the CEO's contract). This is what we hope to implement and we need not be apologetic as this is part of social justice,” he said.
‘Malaysia is unique’
Najib said he had explained in a CNN interview that Malaysia's condition is unique compared to other countries, where governments play a role in helping the minority community to uplift their economy.
However, he said in Malaysia 67 percent of the population are Malays and bumiputera and most of them are poor and should receive help.
At the press conference after closing the four-day party general assembly, Najib again stressed that it is part of the CEOs’ responsibility to meet their KPI.
“We want it to be properly planned and improved further without affecting the principles of good governance,” he added.
It was previously reported that Umno delegates had raised theproblem of GLCs not helping Malay entrepreneurs during the assembly.
