Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi announces his return from garden leave as Umno president

Former deputy prime minister Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today, Sunday 30 June 2019, announced his return from garden leave as Umno president - six months after he had made the decision to do so.

Zahid made the announcement at a Hari Raya Aidilfitri function at Sungai Sumun in Perak in conjunction with the first anniversary of him being elected as party president.

He reminded the people that he had been elected, not appointed, as party president a year ago.

"I can no longer stand seeing people being lied to and insulted.

"So, beginning today, I am officially resuming my duties as Umno president," he said concluding his speech with cries of Hidup Umno.

Last night, former prime minister and Umno president Mohd Najib Abdul Razak said Zahid does not need the approval of the Umno Supreme Council to resume his duties as Umno president.

He said according to the party's constitution, Zahid is still the head of the party because he was rightfully elected to the position.

"Zahid had made the decìsion himself to go on garden leave. It is up to him whether he wants to come back.

"But according to the party constitution, he has the right to lead as (he) was given the mandate to do so."

Zahid went on garden leave on 18 December 2018 apparently to stem the tide of Umno elected representatives from leaving the party. Since then, his deputy, Mohamad Hasan, has been acting president.
