KJ's men challenge Mahathir's son. Ansara (short for Anak Sains Mara) is the alumni for MRSM students. But this is no ordinary alumni. Mukhriz Mahathir, whom many view as a credible threat to Khairy Jamaluddin, who was put as Umno Youth's No 2 by virtue of being the PM's son-in-law, is president of Ansara.
If Mukhriz loses the Ansara presidency, he will lose a "power base" and his position in Umno Youth will be considerably weakened.
That is why Khairy has arranged for Mukhriz to be challenged, for the first time in 12 years, at the alumni's elections this weekend, or so according to this fight preview [Khairy dan kuncu2 dalangi pemilihan Ansara?] that appeared in Malaysia Today.
