Friends in Johor told me over the past weeks that it is almost certain that current MB DS Mohamed Khaled Nordin will revert back to contest his former Pasir Gudang parliament seat in the election.
Khaled is currently the state assemblyman of Permas.
However, just the other day, another source based in KL said Khaled had succeeded in his appeal to remain as Johor MB for another term.
I'm not sure which of my sources were right about this whole thing, but I believe there must be something real going on for the rumours to start in the first place.
I will however not discuss why Khaled was said to be replaced as MB due to the sensitivity of the matter.
What I'm more interested to discuss here is who could possibly replace Khalid as MB.
So far, I have heard three names for the job.
Top in the list is Datuk Daing A Malek Daing A Rahman.
He is currently the Kota Tinggi Umno division chief.
To know more about him, please click on this link,
Daing A Malek
I have never even met Daing Malek, so, I don't think I should comment much on him.
The most that I know is that he is very close to the Johor royal family, therefore making him the most likely candidate to take over the MB job in the event it's true that Khaled will move to Putrajaya after the next general election.
However, my sources in JB also told me that Daing Malek was not really interested in the MB job and instead prefer to concentrate on his business activities and the Kota Tinggi Umno division.
It was said that only the Sultan of Johor could persuade him to take the job.
The second name I heard to be a possible candidate for the Johor MB job is Datuk Hasni Mohammad.
He is the Pontian Umno division chief, Benut assemblyman as well as state executive councillor for public works, rural and regional development.
I actually didn't take it seriously when I first heard that Hasni could be the next Johor MB but my sources in Johor insisted that he was indeed a prime candidate for the job.
My skepticism was because Hasni had previously been known to be very close to former Umno deputy president TS Muhyiddin Yassin, who is now the Pribumi president.
I doubt that the Umno leadership would want someone like him to be their main man in Johor.
The latest development also indicated that Hasni's chances of landing the MB job, if true, had faded due to an issue related to his current job as a state executive councillor.
The third and latest emerging candidate for the job that I heard was quite a surprise.
He is Dr Zaini Abu Bakar, the current Nusajaya assemblyman.
Honestly, I really thought that Dr Zaini's career will effectively ends with the coming general election.
Even his Nusajaya seat was said to be taken over by Mohammad Khairi A. Malik, who is the Gelang Patah Umno division chief and political secretary of Khaled.
Nonetheless, my sources in Johor insisted that Dr Zaini is now a strong candidate for the Johor MB post.
Someone "higher up" was said to like him and wanted him to be considered for the job.
Well, if it's true that Khaled is to change job and become a federal minister or something after the election, then Khairi would naturally be moving along with his boss, thus giving Dr Zaini a chance of not only prolonging his political career, but also landing the Johor MB job.
Still, I think it's a 50-50 thing and could go any other way.
After all, the next general election may only take place up to August next year.
Anything could happen between now and then.
New candidates for the Johor MB job may emerge, or maybe Khaled himself will manage to turn the tide and successfully lobby to keep his current job.
Let's just wait and see.
I nominate Mat Maslan 3.85.ReplyDelete
If not available because cooking Nasi Goreng GST, then I want direct rule by Hippo Empress from Putrakaya.
All Johoreans to get free pink diamond.
But all forced to watch filem lucah "The Seri-Gatal of Jalan Dinding".

After all, we paid for the film.
Please watch this video to gauge the level of respect that Mat Maslan has in Johor:Delete
Despite having a CGPA of 3.85, Mat is not regarded as smart.
However, his CGPA of 3.85 is still higher than Pros Kantoi's IQ of 3.84.

KEM BELUM SIAP, TAPI SPR SUDAH DAFTARKAN PENGUNDI TENTERAReplyDelete
BN semakin terdesak.
Tahukah anda, sebanyak 1,051 pengundi tentera baru-baru ini telah didaftarkan di bawah Kem Tentera Segamat?
P140 Parlimen Segamat telah dimenangi oleh calon MIC/BN Dr Subramaniam dengan majoriti nipis (1,217 undi) dalam PRU ke-13. Ternyata, BN ingin mengekalkan kemenangan tersebut dengan apa jua taktik kotor.
Admin yakin, selain Segamat, operasi haram ini turut dilaksanakan di kerusi-kerusi yang dimenangi oleh BN dengan majoriti kecil.
Antara watak utama dalam skrip kotor ni adalah Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya, Kementerian Pertahanan dan Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara.
Bagaimana mengatasi penipuan ini?
1) DAFTAR SEBAGAI PENGUNDI
2) Ye, DAFTAR SEBAGAI PENGUNDI
3) Sekali lagi, DAFTAR SEBAGAI PENGUNDI
4) Admin ulang, DAFTAR SEBAGAI PENGUNDI
Jika setiap seorang daripada jumlah 3.7 juta warganegara Malaysia yang tidak daftar menundi ini membuat keputusan untuk daftar mengundi, maka penipuan ini akan dinafikan.

Kerajaan persekutuan pungut GST, tol, hasil minyak, income tax. Macam-macam dia pungut, tapi entah ke mana semua duit tu.
Saiz Belanjawan Selangor hanya RM3 bilion, kerajaan Pakatan tidak ambil sesen pun hasil GST income tax minyak, namun dengan sumber yang terhad ini, pelbagai nikmat dirasai rakyat.
Saiz Bajet Najib RM280 bilion (93 KALI GANDA SAIZ BELANJAWAN SELANGOR), tapi entah ke mana wang sebanyak itu. Jika BN pro-rakyat, macam-macam kebaikan rakyat boleh enjoy. Sepatutnya BN di peringkat federal menjalankan 93 kali lebih banyak skim pro-rakyat.

Mungkin juga Najib akan dilantik menjadi Pengarah Siasatan Money Laundering di Interpol jika umur Najib panjang macam Tun M.
Tapi rasanya Najib umurnya pendek sebab stress dengan perangai Rosmah Mansor a.k.a. Badak Air Tamak yang semakin menjadi-jadi.

My lucky guess...ReplyDelete
The next MB of Johor, if selected by UMNO, will be:
b) Have massive unexplained wealth
c) Has received kickback from Jibby's AmBank account (just like Shahrir n' Maslan), hence knows they are taking money stolen from rakyat
d) Spineless yes-man
e) Will need to do a lot of bribery at Umno AGM.
...this description will apply, no matter who it is.
What's the point?

//It was said that only the Sultan of Johor could persuade him to take the job.//
Well, if it is the Sultan of Johor wanting Daing A Malek to be MB, I guess it would be difficult for him to say "No".
//Hasni had previously been known to be very close to former Umno deputy president TS Muhyiddin Yassin//
Well, that looks like the "kiss of death" there :)
//Dr Zaini Abu Bakar, the current Nusajaya assemblyman//
Never heard of him but if he has atas support, then his chances are good.
Thanks for an interesting article :)

Set criteria as bench-marked by sitting CM Guan Eng and MB Azmin
Their achievements are high state reserve surplus and low in debt

I live in pas n umno strong belt in kb….now i even avoid some lifelong kakak kakak pas n umno bcoz we no longer can compromise or communicate on any level on anymore.I figure if I keep my opinionated mouth shut then I can't get into trouble. I ve had stuff thrown at me, n found myself in their public lists, picture n all….a better understanding if dun want to tanam anggur forever.I dun like it but I also dun like d support n believe in current govt. well…there u go……but its only going to get getting worse too.

My hometown is JB.
There are a lot of hardcore UMNO there.
Quite a few of them have change side for obvious reason.
When I am facing the strong UMNO supporter, I will not disagree with them directly. That will be futile.
They got their own opinion, right or wrong.
I then brought up the economic woes we are facing nowadays, and most of them would agree and slowly their resolve will falter.
That is how I think we should approach PAS or BN supporter.
They will disagree about a lot of things, but about the current state of the economy, about the high cost of living, high cost of houses and the level of corruption, they will admit that there is something wrong.
I think Khalid Samad is quite a good candidate.
He got vast experience in an MP for Shah Alam. His experience in Selangor will benefit greatly in Johor.
Selangor is doing quite good. Now is the richest state in Malaysia.
