Former Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s suggestion that having Umno polls before the 15th general election will weaken the party has been scoffed at by Umno’s Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin.

“The suggestion was made by Datuk Seri Najib, and I just want to respond. Umno postponed party elections in 2018 because of GE14. Yet we (Barisan) still lost,” Khairy said after launching a vaccine support volunteerism programme on Wednesday.
