Recent headlines around UMNO indicate growing tensions within the party as different factions tussle for leadership. We look into these developments by first hearing an overview of the different conflicts and factions within the party from an interview by the Bigger Picture. Then, we talk about what it means when a heritage party with so much baggage tries to change its direction. And finally, we look at the emerging key figures in the party and what their leadership styles could mean for UMNO.
