SANDAKAN: Incumbent Batu Sapi Umno Youth head Faisal Ampung failed to retain his post after being beaten by Khairul Firdaus Akhbar Khan at the reconvened divisional Umno Youth meeting, here yesterday.

The post of Umno Youth deputy head for the division was won by newcomer Pengiran Roslan Pengiran Nasrun who beat Mustapha Khalid.

The meeting was reconvened at the Industrial Training Institute Hall, here after the division was instructed to hold a fresh meeting as the first meeting on Oct 30 was declared null and void.

For the posts of national Umno Youth head and deputy head, the division maintained the nominations made at the first meeting, namely Khairy Jamaluddin and Datuk Reezal Merican Naina Merican respectively.

In November last year, the Batu Sapi division chief also failed to retain his seat.

The former division chief Datuk Juhar Mahiruddin, who is also the Sabah state assembly Speaker, lost his bid to retain his Batu Sapi Umno division chief post to his cousin.

Juhar was defeated by his cousin Sekong assemblyman Datuk Samsuddin Yahya at the reconvened meeting. — Bernama
