Umno divisional meetings: Extra ballot papers: Panel to decide
SEMPORNA: The allegation that there were more ballot papers compared with the number of delegates in the election for the Semporna Umno Youth head yesterday would be referred to the Sabah Umno liaison committee for a decision.
Semporna Umno division head Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal said a technical problem cropped up at the delegates’ conference that began at 2pm on Saturday and ended about 7.30am yesterday.
As such, he said he was leaving it to the state Umno to decide whether the meeting should be held again or otherwise.
Speaking after opening the Semporna Umno division delegates meeting yesterday, Shafie said no final decision had been made on the post of the division’s Youth head.
In the election for the Semporna Youth head on Saturday, incumbent Dixon Abd Habi succeeded in defending his post but there were protests from the delegates, who claimed there were more ballot papers compared with the number of delegates present. — Bernama
