Umno Youth nominations count. As at half past six, Mukhriz Mahathir has shot past the 38 nominations required by a candidate to quality for the contest in March next year. Khairy Jamaluddin and Khir Toyo trail with 18 and 10, respectively.
"KJ can still make it," I said to a friend.
"Well, that would be too bad. KJ represents everything that is wrong with Umno today. (The remaining divisions) should send a message to KJ by not giving him anymore nominations," came the reply.
There are 191 Umno divisions meeting until Nov 9 to give nominations for candidates vying for all posts in the party. A member aspiring to run for President needs to secure 58 nominations.
