I started a poll on who should be a vice-president of Umno on Sept 5.
At that time, the confirmed contenders were the three incumbent vice-presidents and two challengers, both who are former vice-presidents.
I was hoping for another guy to join the race and included him in the list of contenders. That guy did just that in the end.
The poll closed just minutes ago as I started writing this.
There were a total 1,124 votes. Everyone who took part was allowed only one vote.
At the top is,
Kedah Menteri Besar Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir with 838 votes (74 per cent),
Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi with 150 votes (13 per cent),
Former Malacca chief minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam with 67 votes (5 per cent),
Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein with 29 votes (2 per cent),
Rural Development Minister Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal with 25 votes (2 per cent) and
Former Negri Sembilan Menteri Besar Tan Sri Isa Samad with 15 votes (1 per cent).
I don't think I have to analyze the results. The figures speak for itself as to who are the more favored by readers of this blog to be an Umno vice-president.
I'm going to keep the results of the poll where it is until the actual voting day on Oct 19.
In addition to that, I'm starting a new poll on the election of top Wanita Umno post.
The poll will close two days before the election of Umno's wings on Oct 12.
