Umno to re­strict in­for­ma­tion at AGM

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion dur­ing the up­com­ing Umno an­nual gen­eral assem­bly (AGM) will be tight­ened to dis­al­low un­reg­is­tered me­dia publi­ca­tions from pub­lish­ing re­ports detri­men­tal to the party.

Umno works sec­re­tary Datuk Seri Rauf Yu­soh said the party is con­sid­er­ing mov­ing the live tele­cast screen to a hall with se­cu­rity checks, in­stead of plac­ing it at the con­course level like it did last year.

He said the live broad­cast pro­vided at the pub­lic space last year was mis­used by sev­eral me­dia per­son­nel to pro­duce re­ports at­tack­ing the party.

“Maybe we will use a hall where the flow of in­for­ma­tion will be con­trolled and fil­tered to me­dia that are not in line with Umno,” he said.
