I just got word from my Umno contacts that Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam has got a show-cause letter from the Umno disciplinary committee chief Tan Sri Tengku Ahmad Rithauddeen. I have not got word about the other Umno contestants. Only Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam for now.
Also heard that a study, conducted last month by Dr Abu Hassan Hasbullah from University Malaya’s Zentrum Future Studies, where Dr Abu Hassan says that he had surveyed some 2,030 respondents, including 163 Umno delegates and had found Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam leading the race for the deputy presidency with 54% votes while Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin trailed with 35% of the votes is highly questionable.
This same study also says that Muhyiddin lost out to Ali Rustam in terms of “popularity, diplomacy” and “political experience”.
I too agree with Muhyiddin that this so called survey and study conducted by Dr Abu Hassan is just a “psychological warfare” to weaken the spirit of Muhyiddin supporters.
