Umno to get cracking on state elections

SEREMBAN: Umno will get cracking on preparations for the state elections once its party polls are over, says deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan.

He said this is due to several changes at the party’s grassroots leadership, besides taking into account the new faces, especially involving the Youth and Puteri wings.

“Generally, in every division nationwide, 70% of the chiefs, vice-chiefs and committees are new... five years with no election, many (in the Youth and Puteri) are overaged.

“Once it is done, we will hold meetings and get cracking (on the state polls),” he told reporters when attending the Rembau division meeting here yesterday.

Mohamad said Umno Youth and Puteri also need to be given exposure and intensive training since they are among the party’s prime movers, in addition to having to be in sync with the machinery in managing the state polls, Bernama reported.
