PETALING JAYA: Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi has announced he will resume the leadership of Umno.

"Today marks a year that I was elected – not appointed – by delegates across the nation. This is very significant and important to me.

"Therefore, I would like to announce that I am ending my leave today. Which means, from today onwards, I will continue my duties as the Umno President," he said.

He made the announcement at a Hari Raya function in Sungai Sumun, Perak on Sunday (June 30) which is in his Bagan Datuk constituency.

Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan took over the reins at Umno when Ahmad Zahid, who is facing a total of 87 corruption charges, went on garden leave on Dec 18 last year.
