Abdullah's Leadership Very Democratic, Says Loyal Servant.

Gerakan holds Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's leadership in high regard as he uses a very democratic approach and considers the views of all, said its deputy president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon. He said the Prime Minister also adopted a consensus-based approach in determining the direction of the nation. "He is also open to criticisms from Cabinet members and others who have differing views," he told a press conference.

Dr Koh said Abdullah's democratic style should not be misjudged as having lost control of his administration."In fact, this is what the people want, a more democratic government than an autocratic one. Abdullah's leadership in this respect is very clear to all," he said in commenting on the remarks made by Kota Baharu MP Datuk Zaid Ibrahim in Parliament last week that the Prime Minister had not brought about the changes he had promised after being in power for three years.

Dr Koh, who is also Penang Chief Minister, said each Prime Minister had his own style of leadership and that Abdullah was no exception."With the total support of the component parties of the Barisan Nasional and the Cabinet, it is his right to administer the nation as he sees fit," he said, adding that it was unrealistic of people to expect changes to be made overnight.

With such loyal servants like Koh, who will at a drop of a coin, give convincing and meaningful expression to his Master's voice, the PM is indeed a very fortunate person.

I wonder whether he would still be singing the same tune once AAB leaves the scene, like Mahathir?
