BERSATU AGM | Bersatu Youth has rejected party vice-president Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman's comment that it was "stupid" for them to speak out against demands for power and position from grassroots members.

Speaking at a press conference after the conclusion of the three-day assembly, the wing's information chief Ulya Aqamah Husamuddin said they also believe that Rashid's remark made during his earlier winding-up speech was not representative of the views held by Bersatu's top leadership.

"Rashid had said that division leaders must be given tenders and contracts and how government resources as an important element to help strengthen the party.

"We unanimously reject this statement and condemn it," said Ulya who spoke on behalf of Youth chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.
