Home Minister Syed Hamid Albar said Umno must draw a line as to how much a candidate can spend for party elections. Brilliant idea, sir!
He also suggested Umno to adopt the ways how candidates of the US presidential elections raise their funds and spend them.
Well... it is time for Umno to to so. After so many years of money-politics which led to a few senior officials being suspended, Syed Hamid's view should be well attended to.
However, what will be the wise 'ceiling' for such campaigning expenses and in what context the money should be spent, is up to the party leadership to decide.
In previous party elections, some candidates were said to have spent between RM200,000 and RM30 million to secure votes from delegates.
Do this people really got that amount of money, anyway? Looks like the delegates are the ones making money...
