Senator Datuk Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki won the Umno Youth chief post today, according to unofficial results. 

The former deputy minister in charge of Islamic affairs reportedly won after a close race against former wing vice-chief and fellow senator Khairul Azwan Harun.

Meanwhile, Datuk Zahida Zarik Khan is reportedly the new Puteri Umno chief.

The 39-year-old won in a straight fight with Nor Hazreena Mohamad Hashim to helm the movement for the 2018-2021 term.

This was announced by Umno’s election twitter account at @pemilihanumno2018.

The Pandan Puteri Umno chief was the wing’s number two in the previous term.

In the Umno election for its Wanita, Youth and Puteri for both central and divisional levels on Saturday (June 24), some 150,000 delegates from 191 divisions voted for the new chiefs as well as executive council members.

The results for the Wanita have yet to be announced but it is said to be a tight race between Datuk Noraini Ahmad and Datuk Azizah Dun for the Wanita chief’s post.
