Mukhriz Mahathir has kickstarted the race for Umno Youth's number one post when he offered to be a candidate after Hishammuddin Hussein announced that he was not seeking re-election this year.
After Mukhriz, it was former Selangor Menteri Besar Dr Mohd Khir Toyo who confirmed that he was interested to go for it as well.
Incumbent deputy chief Khairy Jamaluddin, who has been keeping a pretty low profile since the elections, has not made any commitment yet on whether he will be offering himself.
Much as he'd like to, it is doubtful that he will offer himself but he may "send" a proxy to contest. We can make some guesses.
There's another eight months before the party elections in December. But the nominations for candidates to contest posts will be in October when the divisions hold their meetings.
With Mukhriz and Dr Khir already offering themselves, we can be sure that the field is now wide open.
More will come forward and offer their candidacy.
Even the number two post may be challenged.
But, what I'd really like to know is -- who has Hishammuddin's support in the race.
