Cabinet Speculations

I spent few hrs at one of the cafe in Putrajaya on Thursday ... it is not in a mall but a mill probably .. rumors mill
These self-claimed genius 'political analysts' definitely got nothing to do with any indo-chine chics, or suffering from down syndrome (please thesaurus for synonym)
Apart from rumors saying that the 'angkat sumpah' on Friday is cancelled ( muahahaha ...nice try from PR clowns) I'm more focus on listening to their analysis on who is in and out of the new executive line up.

depa kata: (???? ... disclaimer: read and digest at your own risk!)
1. not more than 26 minister inclusive of PM & DPM (only 24 extra posts available la then ..) and from 22 ministries
2. SUPAR posts are back in the structure and mostly filled by young and dangerous MPs
3. All the Naibs are in (3 of them 21 left)
4. UMNO ministers will filled more than 50% posts ...
5. They said Confirm Stays : Stoppa, Noh Omar
6. Johor ministers are proposed by Muhyiddin & Hisham (casualties to Syed Hamid and Khaled? Shahril Samad already quit. Azalina will be out too?) wait .... Razali Muar? latest heard is Deputy Minister and Dr. Latif also secured his MT seat
7. Full minister from Kedah? Mukhriz?
8. Penang .... Nor Yackop out?
9. Perak ... Zahid in ... Nazri? Husni in? Ismail Bukit Gantang for Supar if he wins?
10. Selangor ... Noh stays, Zin ?
11. WP ... Shahrizat is back with senatorship? Zulhasnan?
12. Negri ... Rais (appointed SUA UMNO?) ... but Shaziman wins MT ... KJ?
13. Kelantan ... Stoppa stays ...
14. T'ganu ... Senator Idris ? Shabery Chik?
15. Pahang ... Ismail Sabri ? Saifudin promotes?
16. Sabah ... Shafie Afdal ... Bung?
17. and they said .... Effendi is back ....

... semua depa tau ... full of question marks

1. With 3 by-elections simultaneously, the event is popularly known as the tri-lection.

2. 15 candidates contesting the Bukit Selambau seat, the most in Malaysian election history.

3. Predictions:

i- Batang Air - Most likely a safe seat for BN.

ii- Bkt. Gantang - 50-50. Very hard to predict. I'll try to provide daily updates as Aurora is there now. Quite a good chance for BN as well.
Pix: Kumpulan Rimba Bara (Mamat Khalid's Rock) berpengkalan di Trong (salah satu DUN dalam Parlimen Bukit Gantang)

iii- Bkt. Selambau - Acid test for MIC.

4. From my survey to 'political analysts' last week at PWTC and The Mall area (during the UMNO General Assembly):
i- MIC is the only party in BN that do not show any signs of rejuvenate/renew or change. More
ii- Samy Vellu factor. I spoke to the car wash guy (a malaysian chinese community (MCC)) last week. His comments on UMNO thingy, at least we the MCC knows who are next in line for UMNO. He also knows Shahrizat, Husam, Azmin, Lim Si Pin and few others new breed of upcoming leaders in our country. But ... " itu MIC .. I don't know la who is the deputy? the ketua pemuda pun sapa ha?"(as he said)
iii- Some quarters also went 'extra-mile' by suggesting that BN should kick MIC out from the coalition as they failed to gain the support from the Indian Community. They said that, HINDRAF is caused by hatred and dissatisfaction towards Samy. And his recent 'uncontested' winning as the MIC president is a big liability for BN.
