The Registrar of Societies (RoS) has found that Umno did not break any rules when it postponed its elections until the end of next year, Ahmad Maslan said.
The Umno secretary-general said he received a letter this evening from the ROS confirming that the postponement of the Umno elections was done properly.
“The elections to the Supreme Council and other leadership positions will now be held at a later date, before December 29 next year. ROS will be informed of the new date,” Ahmad said on Twitter.
Earlier this month, the ROS had ruled that Umno’s decision to postpone party elections was invalid and had instructed the party to set a new date for the polls as soon as possible.
Ahmad said the ROS made the U-turn after it received documents submitted by Umno’s lawyers and after taking statements from party leaders between August 9 and 24.
The party secretary-general added that although there would be no party elections, Umno will hold branch and division meetings for this year. – TMI
