ADUN SPEAKS | Ahmad Zahid Hamidi’s latest Facebook posting on Umno's readiness for GE15 is a crystal-clear indication that Zahid Hamidi and Najib Abdul Razak are likely to have reached a deal for Najib’s return as Umno president. The optics are clear.

The strength of Najib’s base within Umno’s culture and structure of patronage is still very much uncontestable as pointed out by Liew Chin Tong. Najib’s "cash-is-king" philosophy is still very much alive and kicking, which explains Zahid’s subservience to the point of relinquishing the top seat in Umno.
