The proposal received unanimous support from delegates at the general assembly today.
KUALA LUMPUR: The motion brought by Umno Youth for the post of president and deputy president to go uncontested at the next party polls was unanimously passed today.
This means that Umno president Najib Razak and vice-president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, who is performing the duties of the deputy president, will continue leading the party.
Umno permanent chairman Badruddin Amiruddin passed the motion at the end of the morning session of the 2017 Umno general assembly after all the delegates voted in favour of it.
âIn the spirit of unity, we have decided in this assembly that the post of president and deputy president will not be contested,â he said.
The proposal was made on Wednesday by Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin.
Khairy said Umno Youth gave its fullest support to Najib and Zahid to continue helming the party.
âUmno Youth wants to propose that when we do win the general election, God willing, the positions of both president and deputy president will be uncontested,â he said.
