Pak Lah for President - says UMNO Division and Supreme Council Member...

The Kuala Kedah Umno division will nominate Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as party president and deputy respectively.

Its chairman Datuk Seri Diraja Syed Razak Syed Zain said the division committee had decided to do so to strengthen the party.

“The division committee members have unanimously agreed to show support for the top two leaders,” he said, adding that the decision was made during the committee’s meeting on Sunday.- Star, 7/10/2008 Kuala Kedah division to nominate Pak Lah


Well - there you have it. Some, maybe even many, within UMNO may prefer Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to remain President of UMNO, and the Prime Minister...
Syed Razak, who is an Umno supreme council member and a former Kedah mentri besar, also condemned certain leaders for offering to contest the deputy president’s post even before the top two leaders announced their stand.

“This is not a healthy trend for the party,” he said.- Star, 7/10/2008 Kuala Kedah division to nominate Pak Lah
Will the making of Mohd Najib Razak the President and Prime Minister be good for the political stability of the country? Remember that Najib is plagued with allegations of involvement in the whole Altantuya murder, corruption in some Defence arm-deals, etc...and this scandal is not just within Malaysia... What makes it even worse for Najib is the allegations that the police and the public prosecutors have deliberately acted (or by ommission did things) to keep out the name of Mohd Najib Razak? The perceived 'special treatment' of Najib does not go down well for him at all...

Remember also that in the near past in Malaysia seen what happened to that other DPM who seemed bent on challeging and ousting the existing PM. Sodomy charges, corruption charges, black eye, .....

So, will this apparently to eager to take over Mohd Najib Razak also be heading the same direction...

Or will he be going the way of the other DPM, one Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who suceeded in getting the last PM to hand over the premiership to him...

Why should Abdullah Ahmad Badawi hand over the presidency of UMNO and the Premiership to his Deputy? The losses of BN is the losses of BN - not just the losses of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi...If Abdullah is to be blamed, then Najib as Deputy and No. 2 should also share the blame.... This means for change, it must be some other who should be President - Not No.1...not No. 2...maybe some other...

Recently, most State UMNOs supported Abdullah Ahmad Badawi...The BN MPs have also expressed their support for the PM...

So, there is really no reason why Abdullah Ahmad badawi should not continue as President of UMNO...

Whether he does remain as President will be decided by the UMNO members when the submit their nominations...and then when they cast their votes...

But whether he remains as Prime Minister, it may not matter what happens within the UMNO or the BN if Pakatan Rakyat takes over the Federal government...

This sleepy flipflop lame duck guy has already completely lost his sense of directions to lead the country. He will only do what his Oxfart graduate SIL and 4th Floor bums directed him to do. So far he seem harmless in nature not like his deputy.
If he ever step down, the one who is supposed to take over is NO BETTER either. He may be worst off in terms of race, religion and corruptions to name a few. We are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. sigh....
God save the rakyat!!

The question is, "Between the two evils, who is the lesser evil." The choice is quite obvious. It is also apparent, the component parties if given a say, will still prefer to remain loyal to the present NO.1
It is therefore, up to Abdullah to show his courage. He must realize, the future of the nation should not be determined by a few UMNO clowns!
Is Malaysia will have a brighter future with a change of leadership?
The answer is definitely, "NO"
