Umno General Assembly Postponed To March, Says PM. Will Decide By October 9 On Defending His Post

The Umno general assembly has been postponed to March next year, party president and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.

Abdullah, who chaired a special Umno supreme council meeting here Friday morning, however, said that the Umno divisional elections would go an as scheduled from Oct 9 to Nov 9.

The Umno division general assembly was earlier slated for Dec 16 to 20.

Pak Lah also added that the 2010 handover deadline is no longer firm and that he will decide before October 9 if he will defend the Umno president's post.

The meeting at the PWTC centred on the issue of the transition of power between party president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his deputy Najib.

It was speculated that the meeting would discuss an early transition plan and the the possibility of party polls being postponed to June.

It's obvious that some sort of compromise has been achieved and the details of what exactly transpired at the meeting would be out soon. But the initial feeling is that Pak Lah is being clearly shown the door and elbowed out of office

KJ seems to be losing off alongside his FIL. But I wonder if Amno is in charge of all BN MPs including its own MPs because there are hardcore anti-Mahathirists in Umno who will never support Najib simply that he is a Mahathir project. Also non-Malay MPs are not ready for Mahathir again knowing that he has burned the bridges with their communities and the nation is still paying the price of his ugly policies. With Tengku Ku li shut out, with DSAI on the sidelines, with confusion reigning, I don't see why would this purported plan work anyway.

pak lah will try his best to remain at his seat.that's certain.this kinda action can be predicted from any leaders.ask if Muhyiddin ready to give up his post now and the answer is absolutely a big NO!.

Najib on the other hand have to be patient.he's just one step closer to be the next PM.if he support Pak Lah and the power transition while being a decent Finance Minister,then the path is crystal clear for him.

Pak Lah dan Najib sedang sedaya upaya untuk mengekalkan pelan peralihan kuasa itu.jika peralihan kuasa itu diteruskan,mudah untuk Pak Lah terus mentadbir dan mudah juga untuk Najib mewarisi tampuk pemerintahan dari Pak Lah kerana tiada saingan.

mesyuarat Agong saja yang ditanggung tetapi mesyuarat bahagian tetap diteruskan macam yang ditetapkan.jadi tiada apa-apa masalah.

tentang samada Pak Lah ingin mempertahankan jawatan atau tidak,terpulanglah pada empunya badan.

yang penting Najib jangan tergopoh-gapah dalam ingin menjadi PM.biarkan ia berlaku mengikut peredaran masa.

What is the use of defending the Presdent's post if he is going to be "transitted" in March 2009 ?

He will not defend his port, come Oct 9. The question now is what will he be doing in the interim as well as the next person to be PM.

Malaysians need to find out whether it will be more of the same policies or a new direction towards a Bangsa Malaysia.

If BN continues to support race-based policies, then it is their prerogative. Malaysians have to understand and vote accordingly.

As usual they still think we are so dumb!
Obviously they have told AAB that he has to go. This way, he saves face. He will announce that he will not contest for the Presidency in March. This way, he saves face & Najib is ensured to take over.
So while these two have been going on & on since the last GE about the hand-over, no one is running the country!
Different Dictator, same Racist Regime!
