KUANTAN, July 12 (Bernama) -- A total of 1,097 Umno branches in Pahang are eligible to hold their delegates meetings between Monday and Aug 30, Pahang Umno secretary Datuk Abdul Rahim Abas said today.

The delegates meetings of the 14 divisions and their wings would be held between Sept 15 and Oct 15, he added.

He said 18 other branches had failed to meet certain conditions that prohibited them from holding their meetings.

"The supreme council has agreed to establish election committees at state and divisional levels to supervise the branch and divisional meetings as well as the supreme council elections," he said.

Abdul Rahim said members attending the branch meetings would have to verify their identification by having their MyKad scanned.
