PUTRAJAYA: The Registrar of Societies (RoS) yesterday confirmed the approval of an application to put off the 2017 Umno supreme council elections.

In a statement issued yesterday, the RoS said this was in line with Clause 10.17 of Umno’s constitution.

This allows the postponement of the elections at the supreme council, division and branch levels, to not more than 18 months from the date it should have been held.

According to the RoS, Umno had set the party elections to be held on April 19, 2019.

“All registered parties (and societies) are reminded to carry out their business in accordance with their constitutional provisions and the Societies Act 1966 (Act 335),” it said. – Bernama
