Raja Nong Chik didn’t get to become FT UMNO Head after all, it’s TPM Muhyiddin instead!

What to say? When all eyes were focused at the four names supposedly in the running for FT UMNO liaison chief, PM Najib decided not to add fuel to fire and appointed his Deputy, TS Muhyiddin Yassin instead for the job. Raja Nong Chik was appointed Deputy.
Initially 4 names were said to be in the running for the top FT UMNO job after every insider agreed that Datul Zulhasnan’s time is up – Cheras Chief Datuk Syed Ali Alhabshee, Putrajaya Chief Tengku Adnan, Wangsa Maju Chief Datuk Shafie Abdullah who almost got buried in the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide and Raja Nong Chik himself. Rumours were rife that it would be Raja Nong Chik with Syed Ali as Deputy, but alas, the PM decided that it would be a Johor Division Chief that gets it!
Anyway, enough of that, time to bury the hatchet — all these division leaders are heading Divisions aka Parliamentary constituencies that were won by the Opposition in the last election, so they should all focus on working for the people to even have a slight chance of getting a BN win.
Anyway here’s the full national list from Bernama.
