ALOR SETAR: The waiting game has begun for reporters and photographers camped outside Wisma Darul Aman here for the much anticipated meeting between the Kedah Regency Council and state Barisan Nasional assemblymen.
About 40 pressmen are keeping watch outside the main entrance, with giant raintrees providing much needed shade.
At 2.15pm, a white Toyota Alphard stopped and several men delivered 40 packs of nasi kandar and mineral water.
"Courtesy of Datuk Seri Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah," smiled Ramli Hassan, the proprietor of the popular Nasi Kandar Simpang Ampat restaurant situated about 20km from here, who delivered the meals.
Ahmad Bashah, who is state deputy Umno chief and Bakar Bata assemblyman, is believed to be the party’s pick for the mentri besar post should Datuk Seri Mukhriz Mahathir be removed.
Cameras captured the arrival of every official car entering the main gate.
Three government cars, believed to be carrying the assemblymen, arrived at 2pm.
