Asyraf Wajdi is new Umno sec-gen, Azalina appointed info chief

JOHOR BARU: Former Umno youth chief Datuk Dr Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki has been appointed as the party's new secretary-general.

Pengerang MP Datuk Seri Azalina Othman Said, who is also the Law and Institutional Reforms Minister, has been appointed as Umno new information chief, replacing Isham Jalil.

Asyraf replaced Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan, who won the Pontian division chief post and a supreme council seat during the party elections on Saturday (March 18).

Former Putrajaya MP Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor was appointed as the Umno treasurer.

The swearing in ceremony of the Umno new office bearers took place early Wednesday (March 22) at World Trade Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

Ahmad Maslan also won the supreme council seat

In a Facebook post, Isham congratulated Azalina for her appointment as the new Umno information.

He also thanked all Umno members and the party machinery for giving him their support throughout his four-month stint.

“I hope they will continue with the party struggle and give their utmost cooperation to Azalina, who is a good and capable leader.

“I would like to thank Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi for giving me the opportunity to serve as the information chief before this,” he said.
