PETALING JAYA: Umno has postponed its general assembly and all division annual general meetings to next year in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The majority of the supreme council members had, via a circular resolution, agreed to the postponement, said party secretary-general Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan.
“Division meetings have been postponed to March or April next year, while the general assembly will be held either in May or June. We will finalise the dates later, ” he said.
Ahmad said the postponement was warranted to protect tens of thousands of delegates from 191 divisions from Covid-19.
The general assembly was initially scheduled for Dec 6 and 7.
“It is stipulated under Clause 8.2 of the Umno constitution that the AGM must be held within 18 months from the last meeting, ” he said.
