BFM spoke to Mohamad Haniff Khatri Abdulla, whose law firm is representing 16 Umno members – including one branch leader – who are urging the Registry of Societies of Malaysia to do their job.
The last time Umno held their party elections was in October 2013, it is now the second quarter of 2018, which means the three-year limit imposed by its own constitution, has been exceeded.
However, some provisions do allow the party to delay their internal elections, but only for up to a maximum of 18 months. And those 18 months have passed.
What happens now?
