New UM's VC.....

According to some well-informed sources, the next Naib Canselor Universiti Malaya has been identified, HE is going to replace Datuk Rafiah Salim, who we all know that is going to step down from the top post after October '08.

After the Rafiah debacle, of which the UM community strongly work against a paratrooper, the new VC will be most likely to be promoted from within, there is a strong likely-hood that one of the 4 TNCs will be picked to head the no-longer-premier university in this country. The prospective new VC had been known to be an old hand in UM administration, rising up the rank and file from all these year, from a Ketua Jabatan, then to head a Pejabat Dekan, going on to become a institute's Pengarah and finally become a Timbalan Naib Canselor! And all these feats took him more than 10 years to accomplished.

What more interesting is that, according to some sources, there is a official circular calling for application for the position of a particular portfolio of TNC, so is this guy going to lose his job or what?
