146,500 Umno Delegates To Elect Party Leadership

Some 146,500 Umno delegates from 161 divisions nationwide will elect the party leadership at year end in line with the constitutional amendments.

Umno information chief Datuk Ahmad Maslan said the election this time is more democratic as the election of leaders are not in the hands of a group of delegates.

"Previously, only 2,500 delegates determined the party leadership but this time it has been increased to 146,500. The election starts at branch level."

Ahmad believed that the Umno election of office bearers would not become chaotic as what happened in the election of opposition parties.

The special Umno general assembly in 2009 approved constitutional amendments giving 146,500 delegates the right to vote the leadership, abolishing the quota system, simultaneous delegates meeting and allow more women appointees.

Umno also made membership fees once in a lifetime, empower Youth, Wanita and Puteri wings to approve new members and recognise the contributions of division secretaries.

Ahmad said the amendments were part of the Umno transformation process to make the party more democratic, transparent and inclusive.

He reminded all quarters to take heed of what happened during the 13th general election (GE-13).

"We do not want another split among Umno members. It is important to win back the hearts of the people and strengthen the party machinery to meet future challenges."

DAP pakai cadre semenjak tahun 1965. itu sebab ta da pecah rahsia ,pecah lubang,tada hasad kah keting.
700 ahli tak dapat undi untuk party yang paling demokratik di semananjung.Nama Paling Demokratik.
UMNO ada 3,000,000 ahli.Dap ada 100,000 ahli.UMNO dapat 88 kerusi PRU, DAP yang demokratik dapat 38 aje.Demokarcy yang sebab DAP menang 38.Kalau tak ada demkracy dapat 0.

Walau apa pun, pasti UMNO jangan sombong angkuh selesa macam 2004 2008.
KALau PAU tahun ini tak ubah nasib UMNO,kemupunan nati KJ nak dapat PM termuda sekali.nanti jadi macam Peminpin UMUM partai Adil.
Gerak lah UMNO.
