Are you surprised KJ won the nomination in Machang?

My father-in-law hail from Labok. Kpg Tokbok to be exact. The family and I spent our 2nd day of raya recently over there before adjourning to Melor for the rest of our raya holidays in Kelantan. Quite a few attractions are there in Tokbok one of which is the hot spring pools.Tokbok is situated in jajahan Machang. Nice people, laid back pekan (except during the hari raya holidays where the traffic jam is much worst than KL), that's how I see Machang is. But not today where the only thing that is hot is the water from those hot spring pools. This afternoon, there are other hot happenings in Machang.

For today at least, Machang has become a focal point in the run-ups to the UMNO election. It has also demonstrated that there is more than meets the eye regarding Paklah's confirmation (to resign) yesterday. So many of us lauded the decision made by the PM, as if the man has stepped down there and then.

What transpired in Machang UMNO Youth divisional meeting today is sort of a reminder to us that Paklah is still there. He is still the Prime Minister, the incumbent President in UMNO and he'll be around with all the positions intact for the next 5 months during which KJ is still the son-in-law. With all the machinery still at his disposal, it should be no surprise for anyone that KJ had won the nomination from Machang UMNO Youth today. It will be a surprised if Mukhriz had won instead.

There's more to come, you can bet on that. 5 months in politics is the equivalent of eons in time.

As for UMNO members which are yet to convene their divisional meetings, just remember that the public is watching and it is not paklah alone that they wanted to leave.

Please choose and nominate your leaders prudently. Show us that UMNO is really determined to change for the better. Ignore the above reminder and you do so at your own peril as this could be your last hurrah to have the honour and privileges in choosing the next leader of the nation. Next time around it could be the members of Pakatan Rakyat who will decide instead.

Maybe KJ menang the nomination yesterday because people felt sorry Pak Lah dah nak resign.Afterall it was an announcement that came in yesterday?We Malays are generally very nice people.Thats probably to show some appreciation to Pak Lah.Takkanlah nak kasi dia malu.Anyway,pencalunan bagi ke KJ..entah2 undi bagi ke Mukriz..selalu main cantik je.

Salam Tuan Lawyer,

Not surprising at all. Demi maruah, Khairy has only one choice, money talks and bul#$%it walks.

In addition, few young businessmen from Machang rely heavily on Dollah-Khairy regime to top up their periuk nasi.

It is an open secret Kelantan pemuda members are items for sale. In Kuala Krai, a lowly corrupt civil servant who profited astronomically from Kelantan state government is also running for division youth leader.

Dollah must be pressured to set a new date for earlier exit, hopefully he's not fully recovered from flip-flop syndrome.

JK said...

Yelah kalau kj menang jadi ketua pemuda semua orang boleh kaya sebab semangat setiakawan dan bukan makan kawan. Tapi KJ hendak ke kawan dengan aku? Dia kawan dengan patrick lim je kut!
