Anwar ‘returns’ to Umno General Assembly

TWENTY-five years after being sacked from Umno in 1998, Anwar Ibrahim has returned to the party’s headquarters to attend the 2023 Umno general assembly at the World Trade Centre here.

The prime minister was seen entering the building at about 9.10am.

The last time Anwar addressed the Umno general assembly was in June 1998, as the party’s deputy president.

For the 2022 annual general assembly, which was held in January, Umno did not extend an invitation to any leaders from parties in the unity government.
