I do sure hope opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim could get his dates firmed up. He has been moved the goal post twice and now the new date for the PR to assume the new government is October 1st or is that the date that he will see current PM, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi?
We were told that the recent UMNO Supreme Council meeting was hot. The PM was told that he should step down. I don’t think there has been anything like it. No sitting PM has ever been told to go. Perhaps the last was during Tunku’s reign. But the Tunku’s reign ended after the 13th May incident in 1969. Before that, he had been a successful PM. For Pak Lah, it was just not working from the word “go”.
Nazir Razak, the CIMB Group CEO is one of the most sucessful banker in Malaysia. He is well regarded not only here but also outside of Malaysia. He is also the younger brother of the current DPM, Najib Razak.
Anwar is calling Abdullah to convene Parliament by Tuesday. Abdullah tells him to wait until after Ramadan, to be exact, October 13 for Anwar to “do anything”. Welcome to the Game 2.0
“The DAP prefers fresh elections than defections to decide on the new government”, says its national vice-chairman M. Kulasegaran. “This has always been the stand of the party which was fair to the voters.”
The PC lasted around 40 minutes. Anwar is confident. No, not confident. Basically, he has the numbers. He has the 31 names (and more, he says) that will jump to PR. Its a matter of whether the current PM would like to “surrender” honorably.
