There will be a Johor Umno liaison committee meeting later this morning.
All the division chiefs will be there.
They are to decide on the party's way forward in the state after the GE14 defeat.
As far as I know they are divided.
Some want things to remain as they are, others want things to change.
Those who want things to stay as they are will among others want to endorse Khaled Nordin's candidacy as party vice-president despite the guy being fresh from leading them to the defeat in GE14. They will also support Zahid as president and don't want Hishammuddin to contest any top post.
Those who want things to change will want to go the other way around.
Based on what I was told so far, those who want things to remain as they are will win.
Sorry Johor Umno people. I know that most of you all are good people.
But that's just the way it's likely going to be.
I'm particularly sorry because I know that the ordinary members at the branch level are hoping for change.
My special sympathy for the guy who wrote this comment;
Yes, I know the ordinary members really want the party to change.
But with the way things are now, it's not likely going to be so.
I also found out yesterday that those who currently hold power in the party do not wish for Umno to change.
Among others, Ku Nan will remain as setiausaha agong, Rauf will remain as setiausaha kerja, Rahman Dahlan will remain as head of communication etc.
It's business as usual for these people.
They just don't care.
Well, unless the ordinary members could think for themselves and vote for change in the coming party election, then Umno will remain as it is.
I was trying to be optimistic about Umno, especially for my home state of Johor but honestly, I'm quite patah semangat with the way things are now.
I better sleep.
