IPOH, June 30 2019 : Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today announced that he has ended his leave as Umno president and has returned to lead the party again.

Zahid, who was elected as Umno president in party elections last year, said beginning today he is back as Umno president after having taken leave from the post on Dec 18 last year.

“Because today is exactly one year after I was elected, not appointed, by Umno delegates from 191 divisions throughout the country, it is very significant and important to me.

“Therefore, today June 30, 2019, I would like to announce that I have ended my leave as Umno president today. This means beginning today I will resume my duty as president of Umno Malaysia,” he said.

He made the announcement at the Bagan Datuk parliamentary constituency Aidilfitri celebration at the Bagan Datuk Umno Complex here. The announcement was streamed live on his Facebook.

On Dec 18 last year, Zahid agreed to temporarily hand over his duties as president to his deputy Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan in the interests of the leadership and party. – Bernama
