It looks like Wanita Umno deputy chief Shahrizat Abdul Jalil is left with no choice but to mount a challenge against incumbent Rafidah Aziz for the wing's top post.
Besides, Wanita exco member Kamilia Ibrahim is firm in her decision to contest the deputy post.
So, yes --- it's a case of damn if I do and damn if I don't for Shahrizat.
You won't be wrong to assume that all is really not well between Rafidah and Shahrizat.
You know, politics does this to people.
Rafidah is sticking to the plan to not step down anytime sooner than June next year.
But Shahrizat, pressured by her supporters and inspired by the leadership change at Umno's helm, wants an earlier transition.
Her proposal at Monday's Wanita exco meeting was shot down, mercilessly. Accusations of this and that flew around...and some.
No way, Ijat, they told her.
Rafidah is adamant that it's no go.
Shahrizat has got nominations to contest Wanita's number one post. So has Rafidah.
Wanita exco member Kamilia Ibrahim cannot be talked out of her decision. She's got more than enough nominations already.
So, yes...damn if Shahrizat does and damn if she doesn't.
Good luck, y'all.
