Less than 5% Umno division nationwide have issues in party polls, says Zahid

KUALA LUMPUR: Less than 5% of Umno divisions had issues during the party polls, says Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (pic).

The Umno president said that problems would be investigated by the election committee.

"I am satisfied with the election process but it requires further review by the committee," he told reporters at the party headquarters late Saturday (March 18) night.

He was asked to comment whether he was satisfied with the election process.

Some 164,000 members in 189 divisions participated in the polls.

Earlier, Umno suspended the Tanah Merah and Kota Kinabalu divisions from participating on Saturday following internal objections.

As of midnight Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail is leading the vice-president race with 85 votes followed by incumbent Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Norden with 78 votes.

Titiwangsa Umno chief Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani has 66 votes.
