The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

UMNO has recorded an in­crease in mem­ber­ship de­spite the chal­lenges it went through in re­cent times, said its sec­re­tary­gen­eral Datuk Seri Tengku Ad­nan Tengku Man­sor.

He added that as of Nov 30, its mem­ber­ship stood at 3,573,716.

“De­spite at­tacks on Umno, its mem­ber­ship has con­tin­ued to in­crease as a sign of sup­port,” he told del­e­gates at the open­ing cer­e­mony of the party an­nual gen­eral as­sem­bly here yes­ter­day.

He said the num­ber of Umno branches na­tion­wide cur­rently stood at 21,653.

“The spirit of Umno will con­tinue to rise due to the end­less sup­port of the grass­roots and the lead­er­ship at all lev­els,” he added.

He also said Umno and Barisan Na­sional have be­come the tar­get of ma­nip­u­la­tion and provo­ca­tion from var­i­ous groups.

“The con­tin­u­ous at­tacks on Umno came not only from out­side but also from those who used to sup­port the party’s strug­gle.

“Their in­ten­tion was not only to bring down the Umno pres­i­dent but to also top­ple the BN gov­ern­ment that is cho­sen by the rakyat through a demo­cratic process,” he added.
