In the previous week, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim came back to the Umno general assembly for the first time in a quarter of 100 years. He recieved his seat of honour on stage. Datuk Seri Anwar got amazing appreciation from representatives and appreciation from party president Zahid Hamidi. Having been given its worst ever electoral result in previous year’s national polls, Umno leaders understood the requirement to save the party.Umno Youth counted on the Democratic Action Party, which was its earlier enemy and now a friend in government, to apologise for past spats. The youth wing also did a march to the US Embassy in Kuala Lumpur to speak against the comments made by American comedian Jocelyn Chia about the missing MH370 flight.
