Talk is that Abdullah and Najib have agreed to postpone the Umno elections to March or June next year. If that's true, many Umno leaders at the division and branch levels are going to be riled, especially those who want Pak Lah to quit by this December when the General Assembly and elections are due to take place. We'll know for sure after the Supreme Council holds a Special meeting tomorrow. The last time the Supreme Council met, the leaders asked Pak Lah to quit before year-end and not in mid 2010 as he had said he would. My sources said if tomorrow's meeting agree to postpne the elections, Pak Lah may hand over power to Najib by middle next year.
Tengku Razaleigh has also called for a Special press conference at his residence at 3.30 pm tomorrow.
