Elect Leaders The Old Ways To Prevent Money Politics - Mat Taib

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 26 (Bernama) -- Umno deputy presidential candidate Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd Taib has suggested that the party return to the old ways of electing leaders to prevent money politics.

"Let's do away with the practice which encourages money politics. For instance the quota system... it encourages money politics," he said when asked to comment on a statement by deputy Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak that the party would take additional measures to check money politics.

Speaking to reporters after opening the 2008 International Contemporary Art Exhibition here, Muhammad said, it was important that the party address the problem.

On reports that former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad would reveal names of those involved in money politics, Muhammad said, it would be up to the party's disciplinary board to decide.

A total of 910 artworks from Malaysia, Canada, Indonesia, South Korea, Philippines, Mauritius, France and Singapore are on display at the four-day exhibition, starting today, at the Mid Valley Exhibition Centre.
