Pak Lah Fooled The Malaysian People

Hantu Laut

On 12th April I wrote an article "UMNO Supreme Council To Decide Who Should Be Prime Minister" whereby I mentioned not to take Pah Lah's promise to step down and hand over the helm to Najib seriously.

Now Pak Lah had made a 360-degree turn and said he will contest for the UMNO President post in December.

Is he misquoted? Read below....

Malaysian prime minister plans to run again for top party post



KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Monday he would seek re-election as the governing party's leader this year, defying critics and dissidents who want him to resign immediately in the wake of massive election losses.

Abdullah repeated that he would hand over power to his deputy, Najib Razak, but not before party elections in December, in order to ensure a smooth transition. The party president normally becomes prime minister.

"Of course I want the transfer to be smooth. That's very important," Abdullah said. "I do not want to leave the party in a state of chaos. I would not say 'Najib, good luck. That's your problem, not mine.' That's not the way."

His comments were made to reporters after a party meeting to discuss plans in the wake of the March 8 general elections in which the governing National Front coalition suffered its worst losses ever. Carry on........

HL,

Let's be very clear on the following...he has made it quite clear that he is 1/ No more Mr. Clean 2/ A compulsive liar 3/ He's not going to resign.
He said he will ensure a smooth transition to Najib. When did he say he was going to resign?
And another thing, don't forget God's gift to Malaysia, i.e. KJ aka son-in-law! KJ is not strong enough yet. If Pak Lah goes, KJ is a gonner. His enemies (& I'm sure there are loads of them in UMNO, don't even mention the rest of the country!) will feed him to the sharks.
Just watch, Pak Lah will orchastera December's Elections to ensure that Najib either loses or Najib "tows" the line & ensures safe passage for KJ's rise! I'm sure Pak Lah has enough "ammunition" against Mr. C4 to keep him in check (if not why is Najib being so "nice"?).

sm,

Pak Lah wouldn't have much problem if not for UMNO itself.It is not the oppositions that is hounding him, it is Mahathir and his followers in UMNO.

Left alone he could have at least a chance to salvage the situation.

It's a bit too late now,the damage done, he has no choice but to step down.
