Did you really speak to them, Tan Sri? Did they say in no uncertain terms that the polls should be deferred for the love of the party?
If that was the case how come we have reports of some state liaison chiefs saying to the contrary? (read here and here)
I say, Tan Sri Mat, are you telling the truth, nothing but the truth? Damn, he is the last person I should be asking...
Anyway, here's the latest group (members include party vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin), the second-highest ranking committee in Umno, which wants the party elections to go on.

PETALING JAYA: The Umno management committee has unanimously agreed that the party should proceed with its elections this year.
Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said all members of the panel chaired by deputy president Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak were of the view that the polls should not be postponed under the pretext of reviving the party after its poor showing in the March 8 general election.
"We should have elections because the democratic process has to continue. There is nothing to be afraid of."
"We should take the bull by the horns," Muhyiddin told reporters at the Vietnam-Malaysia Economic Conference at the Sunway Lagoon Resort Thursday.
