 PUTRAJAYA: UMNO yesterday announced new dates for its branch and divisional meetings, as well as nomination of candidates for the party's election.

The amended dates are to accommodate requests from branches and divisions, and the visits of two world leaders to Malaysia.

Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said the amendments had been agreed to by party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his deputy, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

The divisional meetings and election of supreme council members will now be held on Oct 19 instead of Oct 5.

The nomination to contest posts in the supreme council will be on Sept 28 instead of Sept 7.

The last day for branches to complete their meetings will be Sept 15 instead of Aug 31.

Registration for the nomination of candidates to contest top positions in the Wanita, Youth and Puteri Umno wings has been extended by two weeks to Sept 21 and the meetings of the three wings will be held on Oct 12 instead of Sept 28.

Tengku Adnan said the changes were made following recommendations and requests from the divisions and branches.

Initially, the branch meetings were to be held during Ramadan and the Hari Raya period, and ending on Aug 31.

He said another reason was the visits of Chinese President Xi Jinping and United States President Barack Obama to Malaysia, which were scheduled in early October.

He also said the party management had conveyed the decision on the new dates to members of the supreme council.

According to Bernama, a total of 146,500 Umno grassroots members in the party's 191 divisions will be involved in electing the members of the supreme council, namely the president, deputy president, three vice-presidents and 25 members.
