Breaking news: Mukhriz to stay on in Umno
Mukhriz Mahathir is staying on in Umno to fight it out. It come as no surprise as the Jerlun MP is eyeing the Umno Youth chief post. If he join his father in quitting, that would be the end of his political dream to helm the youth movement. There is talk that at least five branches in Kedah would close shop tonite following the dramatic decision of Dr Mahathir Mohamad to give up his party membership. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi met Umno MPs at Parliament today where they pledged their support for him. It will be the turn of the BN MPs tomorrow. Meanwhile, seasoned Malaysian journalist Ong Hock Chuan has blamed Dr Mahathir for some of the mess in the Abdullah Administration while another veteran scribe, Kadir Jasin, said Malaysians can expect Dr M to be more critical from now.
