KOTA BARU: The Kelantan Umno liaison election steering committee will focus on helping the Tanah Merah and Pengkalan Chepa divisions hold their delegates meeting soon.

Of the 14 divisions here, only the two could not hold their meetings.

There is a court injunction served on the Tanah Merah division, while the Umno management committee had ordered Pengkalan Chepa to reconvene the meetings for all of its branches.

A spokesman for the election steering committee said that Pengkalan Chepa was on track to hold its meetings but for Tanah Merah, it could only hold meetings after an appeal against the injunction was heard in the Kota Baru High Court.

Both divisions are expected to witness contests for most posts.

In another development, Kelan-tan has two new division heads from the 12 divisions which successfully held their delegates meetings.

The new faces are land surveyor Hanafi Mamat, who won the Pasir Mas Umno division head post, while teacher Zawawi Othman won in the Pasir Puteh Umno division.

One division head who raised eyebrows here is Datuk Mohd Fatmi Che Salleh, for regaining the Kota Baru Umno division, once the the stronghold of former de facto Law Minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.
