The resignation of Zaid Ibrahim has prompted Pak Lah to consider 'revamping' his Cabinet. The best part was, he told Awami Global that he might handover the premiership to Najib much earlier than the stipulated mid-2010.
The tip-off is that, Najib who is now Finance Minister (while Pak Lah himself agreed to head Defense) will become the next Prime Minister later this year.
Afterall, Pak Lah has been under mounting pressure from Umno divisions and its senior leaders (including Muhyiddin, Hishamuddin, Tengku Razaleigh and Rais) for the power transition to be completed sooner than that of 2010.
Well. This is a move to appease Najib's camp, I suppose but whatever the motive was, its pointing to a single conclusion - that Pak Lah's stand on the power struggle is softening and that, he's trying to woo the 'lost supports' from Najib ballooning starship.
This move will also put Najib in a clearer limelight, and that his supporters can sigh in relief that the supposed-to-be the longest wait will come to an end.
What's next, Pak Lah? Only God knows.
