Published on: Tuesday, June 19, 2018

Kuala Lumpur: Umno will only announce its final candidates list for the party elections tomorrow (Wednesday), said the party's chief secretary of division Datuk Norazuwan Aziz.

Speaking to reporters after announcing the names and roll numbers of the candidates, Norazuwan said the delay was necessary in order to conduct background checks on any Supreme Council candidate.

"According to Umno's constitution, a Supreme Council member must have held a Supreme Council position or has held responsibilities as a committee member at the division level.

"We also need a couple of days to conduct a background check and see if the candidates are not on the insolvency list," said Norazuwan.

The final list will be uploaded on Umno's website along with a press release.

In total, roughly 23,000 Umno members will be contesting at various levels from the branches, up to the division, various wings and finally the Supreme Council.

Norazuwan also said there are currently 615 candidates vying for the party's central leadership posts, with seven battling for the president's seat.
