Najib's party elects Ahmad Zahid to lead the Malaysian opposition



The Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak's party has elected his former deputy, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, as his new president to lead his reform after six years following a shocking election loss in May.

Zahid won at least 78 votes in the first open competition for the presidency of the United Mala National Organization, Secretary-General Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor told reporters in Kuala Lumpur early Sunday. There are 34 divisions that are still counted by 190, and one has been disqualified due to too many discrepancies.

The vote began on Saturday morning to decide between five candidates, including former sports and youth minister Khairy Jamaluddin and ex-finance minister Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah. A previous unofficial count showed Zahid by 93 votes
