It's confirmed: Najib will be sworn in tomorrow, 3 April - Chief Secretary

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will be sworn in as prime minister at 10am on Friday, Chief Secretary to the government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan said.

Mohd Sidek had said in a statement - earlier yesterday - which was reported by Bernama that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin has given his consent to the swearing-in ceremony.

However, later, the office of the Chief Secretary to the government said that it had issued the statement prematurely, and Bernama issued a note to editors asking for the story on the swearing in to be ignored. But a few hours later, the office of the Chief Secretary finally released the statement confirming the swearing-in ceremony.

Let's see if Pink Lips will survive his first 100 days as PM. I seriously doubt it.

So now there's no more secrecy, no more mystery. Najib is going to be sworn in veryy soon at 9.45am. Unless there's is some kind of divine intervention.

Bye bye Pak Lah and happy retirement! Now you can sleep to yr heart's content.

Stay tune everybody to TV1 and TV3.

No guessing who is feeling at the top of the world now. Lol.

Wait. There's going to be a documentary on Najib tonite.

Will his family unit include Najib's three kids by his 1st wife and the incoming 1st lady's children from her first marriage?

Or is it going to be just PM and his first lady and just their two children.

Gonna be very interesting if she is going to exclude them - their children from their respective 1st marriages.

He! He! He! Our 6th PM and his 1st lady sure have a colorful past.

God forbid.
