Today is the big day for the Umno wings.
Over 110,000 Wanita, 80,000 Youth and 30,000 Puteri will vote in their leaders.
I'm not going to write much here as I do not believe what I write at this moment will have much impact on the outcome.
The delegates had mostly made up their mind who they are going to vote today.
I just want to put here my prediction of the outcome.
And the winners are,
Wanita chief : DS Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, despite being mired in the NFC cows and condos scandal and the latest, her former political secretary allegedly using money for the poor to buy luxury cars and financing face-lift for girlfriend managed to win after much maneuvering. Her victory may spells the demise of Umno.
Youth chief : Khairy Jamaluddin, is going to win convincingly despite his overly liberal stance and past misconducts which he never repented (including never apologizing for the insults and vilification of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad). Personally, I have nothing against Khairy except for his arrogance when dealing with people whom he thinks is of lower stature than himself but Umno members should have more complaints about him than me. Still, he will indeed wins. Umno members mudah lupa. Well, I never have much regards for Youth members in the first place after many times witnessing their perangai. The Umno idealism is not with most of them anymore. Most only care about their own perut.
Puteri chief : Jamilah Hanim Othman. She is very pretty. Errr...that's all I can say about the Puteri contest, really.
Well, that's all folks. Selamat mengundi. Do try to prove me wrong, ok.
