KUALA LUMPUR – The final list of candidates contesting in the UMNO election this June 30 will be known in two days, said UMNO election secretariat chief secretary Datuk Norazuwan Aziz.

He said the secretariat was still in the process of screening the candidates, including the insolvency aspect, of all candidates who had submitted their nomination forms.

“We have to look at all aspects to ensure they are eligible to contest, apart from them having to pass the screening and abide by the constitution, as well as meet the conditions set by the party.

“The screening may be completed in two days, and we will upload on the UMNO website,” he told reporters after the vote balloting process to determine the candidate ballot numbers for the election at the Putra World Trade centre (PWTC) here today.

According to Norazuwan, 615 UMNO members had nominated themselves to contest for various posts in the party.
