But there was mention of succession...

Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will discuss with his deputy, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak, the transition of power to the latter.

He said Abdullah had told the closed-door meeting with the Johor Umno Liaison Body here that he would discuss in detail the power transition plan with Najib, who is also Umno deputy president, according to Bernama.

"The period of transition and so on were not mentioned in detail... matters such as when the transition will take place and so on will be discussed between him (Abdullah) and Datuk Seri Najib," Muhyiddin told reporters after attending the meeting at a hotel in Johor Bahru.

He said Abdullah had previously stated openly that Najib would succeed him as Prime Minister.

The Bernama report: here.

Meanwhile, Johor Puteri Umno head Nor Aslina Zainal Abidin said the Johor Umno Liaison Body had asked Abdullah whether he had prepared any plan for a power transition.

"We did not ask Pak Lah to step down but there were insinuations for example that during the time of (first prime minister, the late) Tunku Abdul Rahman the transition of power to (the late) Tun Abdul Razak Hussein had gone smoothly, similarly during the time of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the transition of power to Pak Lah also went smoothly."

( So, the Umno sandiwara continues...)

Can soneone among the Umno leaders tell him with all honesty that the grassroots dont want him?

Why are they propping him when they have gone on the ground and the reality is something else?

Why are they encouragingn him and making feel he is still wanted?

Are they (Najib and gang) doing it with the best of intention?

Or are they helping Pak Lah makes a fool of himself?

Or is Pak Lah that "Bebal"?

I agree with you. Orang Melayu, especially orang Johor, cakap memang beralas.

Puteri Umno kata they did not ask him to step down "but there were insinuations..."

Tak paham ke Pak Lah? Maknanya bila lagi dia nak belah?

Kepada UMNO Johor:
Hang pa tak tau lagi ka yang Pak Lah ni bukan orang Johor?

Dia mai dari Penang. Negeri tu tak dak raja. Depa ni bukan paham kalau kita bercakap berkias-kias. Mana reti bahasa Melayu yang cakap berlapik-lapik. Pak Lah ni kira faham bahasa Melayu pun kira dah baik dah.

Kalau betui hangpa Umno Johor nak suruh Pak Lah pi, kena taram direct aja! Macam yang Umno Pulau Pinang & Kedah buat. Bahasa macam ni Pak Lah faham la. Tok sah dok nak bersandiwara/main kuda kepang lagi!
