It's a done deal
It's a deal. An agreement has been reached between Pak Lah and Najib over the leadership succession. The announcement will be made at a right time, according to the Prime Minister. The leadership change, said Pak Lah, would be made at the right time. The only question is when. But it is almost certain that there would be no challengers for the top Umno post. It is unlikely that Ku Li will garner enough nominations. Najib has said he would never challenge his boss. Pak Lah will retain his presidency for certain and if he chooses to, then he could provide some clues on the succession plan at the Umno general assembly.
