"Party Elections Must Go On," Says Umno Management Committee. Beginning Of The End For Pak Lah?

The Umno management committee has unanimously agreed that the party should proceed with its elections this year.

Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said all members of the panel chaired by deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak were of the view that the polls should not be postponed under the pretext of reviving the party after its poor showing in the March 8 general election.

"We should have elections because the democratic process has to continue. There is nothing to be afraid of"

"We should take the bull by the horns," Muhyiddin told reporters at the Vietnam-Malaysia Economic Conference at the Sunway Lagoon Resort Thursday. (The Star)

***** Do we see a split in the views of the top Umno leadership? On the one hand, Muhd Md Taib called for a postponement of the party polls for which there were solemn 'ayes' and now the management committee itself says 'no postponement'.

If you put yourself in the shoes of the no. 2, 3 and 4 in Umno, then you can understand why they don't want a postponement. This is the most convenient opportunity to dump Pak Lah when his stock is at its lowest. For Najib this is the best time to occupy the top slot, provided the whole sandiwara to oust the PM does not in any way implicate him. He must be seen as the 'innocent, disinterested' pemimpin who has been elevated to the presidency by circumstances.

As for Md Ali Rustam, the CM of tiny Melaka, this must be a dream come true as he nervously prays from the sidelines for the decision which may thrust him into the limelight and the no. 2 position in the party and perhaps even the deputy premiership.

Let's wait and watch as the drama unfolds.

The knives are out.
The vultures are circling
The sharks are waiting to pounce.

The end is near for Pak Lah ?
But he can still strike back...methinks Pak Lah has serious sh*t about Najib stowed away...enough to destroy Najib utterly.
To be used when necessary.

Don't forget Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin. There are rumours that Pak Lah wants to replace Najib with Muhyiddin (!).
If that is true, then you can see whay Najib is also asking for the Party Elections to go on as usual.
Mohd X2 Taib is the voice of pak Lah now, that's for sure.
This is becoming a real "soap opera" now!
