JOHOR BARU: Four Johor Umno division chiefs will not be defending their positions during the party’s election this Saturday (June 30).

They are former Deputy Transport Minister and Sri Gading chief Datuk Abdul Aziz Kaprawi, Datuk Md Othman Yusof (Tanjung Piai), Datuk Dr Abdul Latif Ahmad (Mersing), and Datuk Daing A Malek Daing Rahaman (Kota Tinggi).

State Umno secretary Datuk Md Jais Sarday said that 10 out of 26 division chiefs won uncontested, while Muszaide Makmor, who was previously Kota Tinggi division vice chairman, won the division chief unopposed.

He added that nine divisions would be uncontested, such as Pagoh (Ismail Mohamed), Ledang (Datuk Hamim Samuri), Muar (Datuk Seri Razali Ibrahim), Parit Sulong (Datuk Zulkurnain Kamisan), Ayer Hitam (Datuk Samsol Bari Jamali), Kluang (Datuk Md Jais Sarday), Sembrong (Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein), Pengerang (Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said), and Pontian (Datuk Hasni Mohammad).

“A total of 14 divisions will see straight fights but Bakri and Batu Pahat divisions would see three-cornered fights during the party’s election,” he said in a statement here Monday.

Among the division chiefs that would be defending their posts are state Umno chairman Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin, Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad (Johor Baru), and former deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed (Pulai).
