JELI (Kelantan), July 14 (Bernama) -- Kelantan Umno is nurturing a second echelon of leaders from among 'ulama' (religious scholars) in its preparation for the 14th general election five years from now.

Kelantan Umno Liaison Committee chairman Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed said it was identifying potential leaders to take up positions in the party's divisions.

"We want to bring up as many of these leaders as possible," he told reporters after a breaking-of-the-fast and handover of contributions at the Bukit Nangka Umno Complex here last night.

He also said that the 2,204 Umno branches in Kelantan would hold their delegates meetings between July 16 and Aug 31.

The 14 Umno divisions in the state would hold their meetings after the Aidilfitri, likely to fall on Aug 8, and once branches under their jurisdiction had completed their meetings, he said.
