LANGKAWI, 26 June 2009: Malaysian Islamic Youth Movement (Abim) president Yusri Mohamad said today he would relinquish the post at the movement’s 38th assembly in Shah Alam on 1 Aug.
Yusri, who has held the post for two terms, said although he is not yet 40, he wanted to give the new line-up a chance to lead Abim.
Speaking after closing a haj course at Masjid Al Hana’ Kuah Langkawi here, he said this year’s assembly would raise the motion on ways to tackle the sociopolitical upheaval among Malaysian Muslims.
He also said that Abim, which now has 50,000 members, was stepping up its membership drive. — Bernama
