JASIN, March  27 (Bernama) -- UMNO president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi today confirmed Paya Rumput assemblyman Datuk Rais Yasin remains as head of Tangga Batu UMNO division.

He said the matter was confirmed by UMNO Elections Committee chairman Tan Sri Shahrir Abdul Samad today.

"I would like to confirm that the chairman of the UMNO Elections Committee has informed me (that there is no cancellation letter) and Datuk Rais has been confirmed as UMNO head of Tangga Batu division," he told reporters at the Ramadan Charity Ceremony at Ar-Rahman Mosque, Kampung Pulai, Serkam here tonight.

Ahmad Zahid, who is also the Deputy Prime Minister, said this when asked to comment on a viral letter dated March 27 that claimed Rais's victory as Tangga Batu UMNO head was annulled.

Tangga Batu UMNO division secretary Datuk Abdul Latip Mohamad was reported to have said that he received notification about Rais' victory being cancelled through a letter from central UMNO received via WhatsApp at 2.26 this afternoon.

Abdul Latip said the letter informed about the irregularity of the meeting in the UMNO election process of that division which took place in a hotel recently.
