In Kota Bharu, people talk about who should represent Umno/BN as its candidate in the next general election.
In my own division Masjid Tanah, members are already forming their teams - one which supports the reigning division head (Abu Seman), another for his deputy Kapt Karim and the others for 'none of the above'.
In Kluang the other day, there were words that Sembrong MP Hishammuddin Hussein will face a new challenge from few of his comrades in the constituency, apart from Pakatan Rakyat's strong candidate.
I am not concern over who are the Opposition candidates to take on Umno/BN nominees in PRU13 but the unpleasant atmosphere in Umno in preparing for the national poll, triggers an alarm.
There is no stopping to this factionalism each time when chosing the right candidate matters most. Some drip extra sweat by meeting the chief minister and mentri besar to accept their proposed man for the 'wakil rakyat' job.
And that is not enough.
Some factions are already submitting suitable names should Ali Rustam (Melaka), Ghani Osman (Johor), Mohd Said (Trengganu) and others are defeated or 'shifted' to the Federal after the general election.
This is actually the time we can observe for ourselves how 'filthy' politics of the Malays are. They couldn't care less if their action causes split to the division as long as their nominee makes it for the poll.
Forget about the pledge to support the elected division or branch heads as it does not count anymore. What's most important is to ensure their future 'will be well taken of' if their candidate is endorsed and wins.
I find all this sickening! I shouldn't write more...
Sama-sama faham la!
