No parties invited to attend GE: Ahmad

NO POLITICAL parties other than Barisan Nasional (BN) components and Friends of BN have been invited to attend the 2022 Umno general assembly, which begins on Wednesday (Jan 11).

Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan said that, unlike previously, no foreign delegates would be invited to attend the assembly this time either.

Speaking in Kuantan yesterday, he said the decision was made because Umno wanted to resolve all matters related to internal issues of the party and BN.

“So far, that is the decision unless there are changes in the next day or two. Not inviting (them) does not mean we are not friends, but it’s because we want to focus on the party’s internal issues, do some self-reflection and so on,” he said.
