Khairy, Shahrizat and Rosnah win in party polls

UMNO Youth and Wanita went through the democratic process and delegates think through carefully and vote in their likeable leaders.

Khairy Jamaluddin has won the Umno Youth chief's post after polling 304 votes out of the 793 possible votes, defeating narrowly Mukhriz Mahathir and early front runner Khir Toyo in the stiffest ever battle for the post.

Shahrizat Jalil trounced Rafidah Aziz to win the Wanita Umno chief's post, polling 507 votes against the loser's 280 votes. The defeat for Rafidah, 66, seems to be the closing chapter for her.

Datuk Rosnah Abdul Rashid Shirlin has been elected the new Puteri Umno chief, polling 245 votes to beat five other candidates at the movement's elections.
