Umno general assembly – Divorce imminent?

What does the recently concluded Umno general assembly tell us about the party’s relationship with Bersatu and Pas going into the next general election?

Astro Awani’s Sharaad Kuttan and Melisa Idris ask Bridget Welsh and Ibrahim Suffian of Merdeka Center whether tough rhetoric will turn into conclusive action.

Of course, politics is the art of the impossible? No?
Well, we shall see , in due course , if the divorce with Bersatu and Pas shall go through.
Let’s not forget cash is king in Bolehland…
like Xavier, many other factors can be brought to bear.
Yes, I shall celebrate if the divorce is deemed final in the run-up to GE15.
But the results for GE15 is still murky….whatever I will accept that results.
