"I and the rest of the party admit that the party needs to be rejuvenated and to stay relevant.
"Therefore, it is important that the upcoming generation of Umno leaders, also known as JIL Umno, need to have certain requirements," he said when addressing the party's annual general assembly at PWTC.
"Secondly they should have integrity and live by moderation whereby they are not driven by extremism.
"JIL Umno should also be grounded and never fail to appreciate eastern values no matter where they pursue their education," he said.
