Updates: 9.40pm - Umno supreme council meeting over Dr M's decision to quit party. Hishamuddin Hussein Onn wants Mukhriz referred to management panel for his call to Pak Lah to step down.
Mokhzani Mahathir has joined his father to quit Umno. The former businessman and former Umno Youth leader has less risk that his brother, Mukhriz, who is eyeing the Umno Youth chief post. Unlike Mukhriz, who is the MP for Jerlun, Mokhzani does not hold any party positions. Former Kota Setar MP Dr Hadi Derani also quit, together with other branch members. The constituency has been renamed Pokok Sena, now under PAS. Dr Mahathir's biggest challenge, to sustain the momentum, is to get some big names to join his move. At this point, those who have joined in are mostly veterans and family members although his act has jolted Umno.
