KUALA LUMPUR, May 15 – Umno Special General Assembly today unanimously approved a motion to amend its Constitution which, among others, allows party elections to be held no more than six months after the general election.
Secretary-General Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan confirmed the matter via his Twitter page.
The amendment was approved unanimously by the delegates in Dewan Merdeka WTC KL on 15/5/2022. Alhamdulillah,” he said.
The motion which involves Clause 10.16, 15.3 and 18.2 was proposed by Vice President Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled in front of 2,586 delegates.
Umno previously postponed party elections for 18 months after the 2018/2021 term ended on June 30 last year. By far right, it should be held before December 30, 2022.
It was seconded by Prime Minister who is also Vice-President Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
Apart from the meeting, Umno also celebrates its 76th anniversary and holding an Eid open house, where about 8,000 people attended.
