Recent headlines around Umno indicate growing tensions within the party as different factions tussle for leadership.

BFM looks into these developments by first hearing an overview of the different conflicts and factions within the party. Then, it talks about what it means when a heritage party with so much baggage tries to change its direction. And finally, the discussion turns to the emerging key figures in the party and what their leadership styles could mean for Umno.
