It has been a long time since the top two posts have been open for contest.

Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has confirmed that he will be running for Umno’s top post in the upcoming party polls.

However, Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, who has taken on the duties of Umno deputy president after Datuk Seri Najib Razak stepped down as president, has yet to decide which post to contest.

Currently, Hishammuddin is in Mecca, to perform his Umrah.

As agreed upon by the Umno supreme council on May 22, all top posts will be open for contest.

This means that the previous motion of no-contest for the president and deputy president posts that was passed by the Umno general assembly last December is null and void.

It has been a long time since the top two posts have been open for contest.

Nominations for the Umno party elections are open from June 1 to 17.

Meanwhile, former Negri Sembilan Mentri Besar and state liaison committee chairman Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan, has announced that he will contest the deputy president post.
