Langkawi in a fix. Is someone in Langkawi Umno trying to shut out Mukhriz Mahathir from contesting in the General Election? Blogger Big Dog says this is the case. The statement made by Langkawi Umno secretary Mohd Saiful Mustaffa that the division does not want "outsiders" to contest is not true, according to the blogger.
Mohd Saiful claimed that 85 out of 91 branches in Langkawi have said NO to Mukhriz contesting in Langkawi.
Big Dog says ONLY 24 branches signed the petition drawn up by Saiful to deny Mahathir's youngest son a change to represent the island that was put on the world's tourism map by the former PM.
