And, "Why should I resign?" - PM

Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has brushed aside speculation that he would step down as Prime Minister.

He said there is no reason for him to resign and claiming that "my government has got a strong majority..."

Bernama reported that the Prime Minister reiterated that he would not run away from his responsibilities.

"I am here. I am here. I am here.

"They make all the speculations that I want to run away, I've resigned. Why should I resign?"

"My Government has got a strong majority (although) not the two-thirds (majority), but very strong...that is the stand of support."

"Why I must run away from my entrusted responsibility," he was quoted by Bernama as saying, after meeting Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Said at his office here Wednesday.


(Well, actually, nobody says you wanted to quit. What has been reported is that there have been calls for YOU to quit. The most recent was yesterday by, of course , former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. In case you missed it, this is what Dr Mahathir said: "Anyone else would have already resigned but (Abdullah) has no shame."
By the way, Pak Lah, the BN does not have a strong majority as you claimed. The BN lost its two-thirds majority in Parliament. Sleeping still? In Denial? Delusional? Or advised not his 4th ffloor boys who convinced him he's doing a fantastic job? Maybe he shouldn't (step down). Let him be and give him enough rope...And we'll see. )

Read nuraina's: "I aint quitting . Why should I? ".



kak ton.

i think this is beyond "denial".

his boys and hangers-on themselves believe that Pak Lah SHOULD NOT resign. They are convinced that he has done no wrong and had, in fact, done good for the country.

but listen up -- the DAP, PKR and PAS WANT PAK LAH TO REMAIN.

He is good for them.

Now, if you were them, wouldn't you want him to ermain the PM?

kak ton, if he continues to remain which he will, I think it's the end of the entire BN in the next election, T4, what nuraina said is correct. I believe it's BN road to self destruction and what better way than him being PM, whoever who hangs and clings on just kaut/grab whatever they can to the max as they know the end is near. A stronger leader/PM just might give them live, but this weak and sleepy one just the opp the right ammunitions to be better.

Its okay, Pak Lah, we dont have to do anything. We can wait. The longer you reamain in power, the more blunders you are going to make.

We leave it to the Umno members to do that for us.

Pak Lah misses the point about the electoral results of March 8. Losing the 2/3 majority for BN is losing the elections and as the man in charge, he should take responsibility.

He had made promises which were either broken or not kept.

BN lost 6 states and had it not been Sabah and Sarawak who delivered the most number of seats to BN, Pak Lah would have been out by now.

And that he called a strong majority?

Oh yes, he lost to the rulers of Perlis & Terengganu.

And he still thinks he is in control.

He should resign.

Why cant he take responsibility for the big loss. Why cant he act like proper leader, take the same action like the MCA and Gerakan leaders?
