The Umno General Assembly 2014 will be held from Nov 25 to 29.
Hishammuddin said the Resolution Preparing Committee of the Umno Supreme Council’s Working Council had formed a special team to handle the resolutions proposed by all the divisions.
He said the special team would go through the resolutions for further action by the ministry, department and government agencies concerned.
