Can UMNO Repair Itself From Within

The Umno General Assembly concluded last Saturday where nearly 3,000 delegates convened and heard from party leaders on the future direction of the party. The biggest development was the passing of a resolution to not have the party’s top two positions open for contest in its upcoming election. But will this sit well with the grassroots and can this party recover from their poor performance at GE15. Dr Bridget Welsh, Honorary Research Associate, Asia Research Centre, University of Nottingham Malaysia gives us her views.
