"We now have four states where the Mentri Besar is also the state Umno chief – Pahang, Perak, Melaka and now Johor is joining the list.

"We want to standardise it so that the head of a state government is also given the chance to be the party's state chief," he said Friday (Dec 8), when asked to comment on Onn Hafiz's appointment.

Speaking at a press conference after visiting the planned site for the Pontian Community College here in Benut, Ahmad said he had no problem working under Onn Hafiz as deputy state Umno chief.
