Pak Lah

Oh well.. so much for listening to the grassroots!

I read this in the news just now;

Malaysian PM Rejects Pressure To Unveil Exit Plan

Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said Monday he would be re-appointed to the top job by his party in December polls and rejected calls to formalise his plans to relinquish power.

Abdullah has faced persistent demands to quit after the coalition led by his United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) was dealt an unprecedented setback in March general elections.

But despite mounting demands to quickly unveil his plans to hand over to his deputy Najib Razak, he said succession talks would only take place after UMNO’s internal leadership polls in December.

Unbelievable isn’t it? This is what he arrogantly said in his actual words;

“Delegates will continue to give me support during the party election and they will put me as president and Najib as deputy,” he told reporters after a meeting of coalition lawmakers.

“After that Pak Lah and Najib will discuss issues related to transfer,” he said, referring to himself by his nickname. “Why should I not contest the December party polls?”

Sigh. So much for blaming himself. He will never learn, will he?

Eeeii..! tak malunya aku…!

Note that Pak Lah tries to equate his situation to the smooth transition of power from Tun Dr Mahathir to him. Again, Pak Lah misread it. Tun Dr Mahathir tried to resign voluntarily back in 2002 at the height of his popularity. But was asked to give a proper succession period by the grassroots.  Whereas for Pak Lah, he is ‘asked’ to step down immediately. Please do not be so ignorant in reading the sentiments. You are in no way in the same league with your predecessor. When people do not want you anymore, please do not justify it by telling people about having a smooth and proper transition of power. You need to pack your bags now!

  3. No Tun Dr. Mahathir resigned because he knows BN and UMNO WOULD LOSE if he didn’t step down. But he DID resign nevertheless.

    JMD : Really? Even in 1999 elections during the height of the reformasi movement where his popularity was all time low, he was confident that BN will retain 2/3 majority. Which they did. But that is another matter.

    What you said is by far, a hearsay. A baseless statement. How would you know what was in his mind? I was stating that in this article the difference between TDM and Pak Lah. When TDM wanted to resign in 2002 (a fact), there was an UNANIMOUS call (a fact) from Umno members for him to carry on, which he did for the next 18 months till 2003 (a fact). His popularity was way higher in 2002 than in 1999. But he knows Umno at that time was ready for him to step down. Which he eventually did. Who would’ve thought that Pak Lah would step the nation at the back by mismanaging it till now huh?

    Now Pak Lah is adamant to cling to his weakened power. This will do the nation no good.
