Dr Mahathir happy Pak Lah step down.

Tun Dr Mahathir said he was glad he had been wrong when he wrote in his blog www.chedet.com that Abdullah would not step down.

“Of course, I am very happy for Umno, not for myself.

Dr Mahathir, however, said he felt it was better for Abdullah to step down now rather than wait until March as he could still be an obstruction.

“Until March Pak Lah must keep quiet and let Najib run the show. He should not interfere."

On whether he would be roped in to act as mentor to Umno, Dr Mahathir said he would give advice even if he was not asked.

The Malaysian Insider Report:

One down: Now for Khairy
Commentary

OCT 9 - Having witnessed the forced exit of Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is now training his guns on his other nemesis: Khairy Jamaluddin.

His sarcastic comments on his blog about the PM’s son-in-law mark the beginning of what is likely to be a campaign to make sure that the latter fails in his attempt at becoming the Umno Youth leader, and becomes a political footnote.

There is an added impetus for Dr Mahathir to succeed – Khairy’s failure could clear the path for Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir’s rise up the ladder in Umno.

Will Dr Mahathir succeed? Possibly. But really, Khairy’s chances of becoming the leader of the youth wing hinges more on what Najib does rather than what the former prime minister says. If Najib sends the signal that he wants the divisions to support Khairy, he will become the head of the youth wing.

Mahatiu the sore loser will be a very happy man until PR takes over the central government...

It was a blessing that Abdullah was the PM on 9th March 2008,I bet Mahatiu would not
hesitate by whatever means to invoke Article 150 of the Federal Constituion to suspend parliament and declare emergency if he (Mahatiu) was still the PM.

For that we should be grateful to AAB.

Paklah failed because he did not deliver his promises to undo what everyone knew are the ills of the country. He did not created them.

Now back to old business? From a thriving trading nation down to the low-end of the food chain, how long more can msia last?

I am beginning to miss paklah already. lol

Memang dah agak dah.. Mahathir adalah orang pertama yang paling gembira dengan keputusan yang diumumkan Pak Lah semalam.. Beliau memang anti Pak Lah. Beliau sudah pasti puas hati dengan pengunduran Pak Lah pada Mac 2009 kerana Pak Lah tidak akan dapat lawan pembangunan yang beliau bawa untuk Malaysia.. Itulah dia Mahathir yang berhati busuk...

suka_aman said...

Pak Lah haters is surely laughing all the way when he made the annoucement to quit on March 2009.

but will his successor (most probably Najib) will do his job better or worse than Pak Lah?

Jefus said...

He failed because he was ineffective. He did not seize the moment when it was opportune, perhaps due to inexperience in executive leadership, lack in intuitiveness, perhaps lackadaisical and the country paid the price.

Why the two months holidays? I thought he had what,.... five years holidays?

I am sorry to say this DOCTOR but how can the son-in-law not win when HE is holding the Military Intelligence report and with that the man's balls as well. Your son DO NOT have any chance whatsoever UNLESS you too have something juicy to offer...perhaps a copy of a high-definition video recording by the French Intelligence Agency on the mysteries of anal sex susceptibilities, No?

end said...

Abdullah is down.the next target is..

Khairy Jamaludin!.

i'm sure all the Mahathir men gonna make extra effort to topple all Abdullah's people and legacy in UMNO and govt.

but for Mukhriz and Ku Li to win the seat that they wants might be difficult they aren't really the darlings and favorite in UMNO.

Memanglah dia suka Pak Lah turun sebab selama ni Pak Lah bukanlah jenis yang senang2 je Mahathir nak kuda2kan. Dia tak puas hati lah, dia nak lah bagi orang yang ada kat situ dia boleh gunakan, dia boleh pengaruh.
