Dr. Mahathir announces at 12:35pm today that he is quitting UMNO, followed suit by Sanusi Junid. Main reason cited for leaving UMNO is the lack of confidence in Badawi, the current PM's leadership of UMNO.
Is it for good or just to pressure Badawi to step down? If quit now, can rejoin later? Somehow quit or not, there is not enough time for UMNO to repair its damage.
