Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan has asked all parties not to blame the Registrar of Societies (RoS) in the issue of the party's constitutional amendment application.

He said like the RoS, his party also hoped that Barisan Nasional (BN) would not be blamed for urging the department to provide an answer to the application.

"Don't point fingers and blame the RoS for not listening to BN or anything like that. We’ll give more time to the RoS... another week or two," he said after an event in Bangi yesterday.

The Pontian MP said more time should be given to enable the RoS to examine the additional documents requested from Umno.

"As the RoS has requested eight additional types of documents, it means additional time will be needed for them to provide feedback," he said, denying reports by several media outlets that the RoS had approved the party's constitutional amendment.

Umno had applied for the amendment to enable it to postpone its leadership elections until six months after the general election.

The notice of constitutional amendment was submitted to the RoS on May 17.

The RoS had issued a brief statement to Bernama on July 7, saying a decision on the application would be made known by July 16.
