Tengku-Adnan-Tengku-Mansor-Kuala Lumpur, Nov 29 – A total of 5,726 delegates will attend the Umno general assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre here starting Tuesday.

Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor said they comprised 2,759 delegates for the general assembly and 989 for each wing.

He said 101 representatives from 32 parties from 28 countries, 80 delegates from 73 Umno Overseas Clubs and seven national liaison bodies had confirmed their participation.


Apart from deliberating on the presidential address and resolutions on economy, religion and education, the delegates are expected to raise issues pertaining to party polls and the 14th general election, he told a news conference at the PWTC here Thursday.

Tengku Adnan said 1,724 members of old and new media from 118 organisations, including 16 foreign agencies would be covering the general assembly.

Laman Media is located on level two of the PWTC while news conferences for vice-presidents, Wanita, Youth and Puteri chiefs, and other party leaders will be held in Penang Room.

“Security will beef up at Laman Media to prevent non-media people from entering the area. Hence, accredited media personnel are required to wear the media tag at all times,” said Tengku Adnan.

The Umno Overseas Club Conference will be held at the Tun Ismail Hall, PWTC on Sunday as a prelude to the general assembly.

This will be followed by an international forum themed ‘The Politic of Moderation Accommodates and Balances Competing Principles That Leads to Peace and Stability’ on Monday and Tuesday.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is scheduled to deliver a keynote address at the forum while Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin will close it.

The 2013 Umno general assembly will begin on Tuesday with the Wanita, Youth and Puteri delegates conference before Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak open the general assembly on Thursday.
