KUALA LUMPUR - The 2022 Umno General Assembly (PAU) witnessed an increase in motions calling for the posts of president and deputy president not to be contested in the next party polls.

This motion, which was submitted by a representative from Negeri Sembilan, was being debated.

Umno representative from Tanjung Piai, Johor, Mohamad Hafif Abdul Kamal said there were a small number of people who protested when the motion was brought up.

He said there some representatives who were not happy with the motion and "booed" when it was debated.

"It's normal, it is a spontaneous reaction. This is bound to happen, but the majority seem to (support) that the posts not be contested.

"But we'll wait, it's being debated, we'll see how it goes tomorrow. Today, it is just about to be debate," he said when met by reporters during the assembly at the Kuala Lumpur World Trade Centre (WTCKL) here.

Umno representative from Tanjong, Penang, Fahami Ashrof Badaruddin said that the "boo" sound was not clear and faint.

"During the cheering, I did hear some sounds where somebody booed, but the boo was not clear.

"I was inside, just came out. But it was not clear. Maybe there were a few. Those who supported us were louder than those who wanted to boo," he explained.

At the same time, he also said there were pros and cons as to whether the positions should be contested or not.

"I see that if contested, there will be divisions among Umno leaders, but if not, then the posts need to sit side by side and make sure that a strong front is formed to face elections in the future and strengthen Umno again," he explained.
