The Umno division nominations for national party positions are not determinants of who will eventually win in March 2009.
The period between the completion of the nominations and the actual electing assembly is four months apart - rather than a month originally before being postponed - thanks to party president Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Therefore the present form of the candidates today won’t necessarily decide their fate in March.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
