KUALA LUMPUR: The Home Office has decided to exempt Umno from complying with Section 13(1)(c)(iv) of the Societies Act 1966 (Act 832) with a view to passing an additional motion for the President and Deputy President to hold uncontested posts this year’s party elections.
His Minister Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (Picture) said he had referred to Umno’s Articles of Incorporation and Meeting Rules regarding the additional motion and granted the exemption under Section 70 of the Act.
