PETALING JAYA: Tengku Zafrul Aziz and Isham Jalil are among newcomers elected to the Umno supreme council, while Lokman Noor Adam, who was once expelled, has retained his seat.
Puteri Umno leader Zahida Zarik Khan, another newcomer, was among the 25 members elected to the council to serve until 2026.
The list of winners was announced by party election director Shahrir Samad earlier today. A total of 95 candidates had contested for a seat on the council.
Tengku Zafrul, who is minister for international trade and industry, tied for fourth place with Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan. Both obtained 167 votes. Isham, who is Umno information chief, came in 19th place with 101 votes.
The most votes were won by deputy home minister Shamsul Anuar Nasarah, who retained his seat with 178 votes, followed by foreign minister and Perak Umno chief Zambry Abd Kadir with 175 votes.
