KUALA LUMPUR – Motions discussing the party election will not be discussed during Umno’s general assembly next month, with attention mainly given to preparing for the general elections, party vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein said today.
Hishammuddin, who chairs the committee on motions for the assembly, told a press conference that he had asked for motions pertaining to party elections not be brought up during the meet.
“I have asked that we do not debate motions on party elections, and focus on the general elections,” Hishamuddin said.
He was speaking after chairing the motions committee for the party elections at Umno headquarters here.
The party election is not due until next year, likely after the 14th general elections.
The Umno general assembly, which will take place on December 5 to December 9 this year, will also be the party’s last before the national polls.
Hishammuddin today revealed that a total of 826 motions have been received from 191 Umno divisions, with 191 of them accepted without debate.
Political motions topped the agenda at 238, with one of the motions being a proposal for the party president and deputy president post to remain uncontested at the next party poll.
Hishamuddin also said that the assembly this year would focus on reflecting what he called a “feel good” factor regarding the federal administration.
“If you look at the latest Budget 2018, if that is not feel good, I don’t know what is,” he said.
He said that he has never seen such “detailed preparation” heading to a general elections in his career, stressing that he believed the ruling party is well prepared to face the next national polls.
