PM To Seek Audience With Tuanku Mizan

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Tuesday said he will seek an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, to discuss and resolve the issue on the appointment of the Terengganu Menteri Besar.

"I will certainly be meeting with Tuanku," he told newsmen after delivering a keynote address at Invest Malaysia 2008 Conference, here.

Abdullah said the meeting would be held as soon as possible.

"I wish I could have done it Monday," said the Umno president.

Abdullah earlier was asked to comment on party vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin's suggestion that Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh and the Prime Minister should seek an audience with Tuanku Mizan and apologise if indeed there was a misunderstanding between Idris and the Palace.

On Saturday, the Terengganu palace issued a statement that Kijal Assemblyman Datuk Ahmad Said was appointed as the new Menteri Besar to replace Idris.

However, 22 of the Terengganu BN assemblymen pledged their support for Idris who had received his appointment letter as Menteri Besar from Abdullah.

Following this, Umno secretary-general Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor was quoted as saying that Ahmad could face disciplinary action if he accepted the appointment.

Ahmad was reported to have been sacked for disobeying the party's leadership in accepting the post.

However, Abdullah said he would leave it to the Umno Supreme Council which is expected to meet on Thursday to deal with the matter.

Ahmad Said already started work as Mb and ONLY now Pak Lah wants an audience with the Agong.

Apalah Pak Lah. This is something one should know, especially if you are the prime Minister.

Sape gak Para penasihat belisu?

Patut dibuang kerja.

This sleepy PM has no sense of urgency.

Cant handle problems, for sure.

Bodoh tapi sombong. Doesnt know how to map out strategies. Kalau ada pun strategy yang salah, backfired.

So what he is going to do? Sembah Tuanku minta ampun dan maaf lepaih tu minta Tuanku tukarkan Mat Said dan bagi Idris jawatan MB?

Just like that?

Pak Lah is brain-dead. That's the reason he is slow and not capable of making the right decision.

He is making a mockery of the post of the Prime Minister.

Intellectually, he is zilcccccccccch!

Pak Lah u are an embarassement to Malaysians.

Just step down and go.

He should have known better than to fight the King in the open. Now is seeking an audience.

Wei, mana hang nak letak muka.

Tuanku has put you and your goons in your place.

In fact, you're literally crawling to the King now, Pak Lah. And tht arrogant Idris, so biadap is asking for forgiveness.

Maybe the YDP Agong is more forgiving. If it was me, I would strip that Deris fella of his Datukship and send him off to Timbuktu.
