UMNO Thanks EC

Just as the new Election Commission chairman, Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof denies any consideration of the UMNO party elections in the setting of the by-election dates of Bukit Gantang and Bukit Selambau, UMNO leaders wasted no effort in thanking EC for helping them out(!)

As reported in The Star,
Umno information chief Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib said the commission had exercised its discretion in timing the polls so that they would not overlap with the Umno event.

“The Election Commission is being practical otherwise there would be a conflict of agenda between the Umno meeting and the by-elections,” said Muhammad, one of the three candidates for the Umno deputy president’s post.
So it's quite clear, who's the real boss in Election Commission.  Not even any pretence of independence or impartiality.
