Not pressured... anyone to do so, he said.

BESUT, May 30 ─ Former Terengganu Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh said he stepped down as state Umno liaison committee chairman voluntarily and that he was not pressured by anyone. Idris, who is Jertih state assemblyman, said he made his decision to ensure that Umno remained strong in Terengganu. Read more Idris says he quit post on own accord

Different story altogether way up north. Someone in Perlis is getting in somebody's hair!

"Why I should resign?. I am also an Umno division head," he said, adding that he was still the State Umno chairman and had no problems with the post. Read more Shahidan should quit party post, says MB’s aide

I wonder whether any of this will have significant impact in the coming UMNO's branch and divisional posts election and the party's election itself come December. Hey, who am I kidding? This is the current UMNO we are talking about. Going by the records, it's either "no contest at all" or "a free for all". My guess? Battle royale is in the offing.
