Come Nov 10, Najib is Umno President... what will Pak Lah be?

Umno divisional meetings will conclude on November 9, about 10 days from now. Looking at it, there will be 'tough fight' for all top positions in March 2009 general assembly, except for the presidency. By virtue and by logic, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak will emerge winner for the no.1 post as nobody has offered anybody else the chance to contest. Being unopposed, Najib will become Umno President on November 10, 2008 and automatically 'a seat as the new Prime Minister'. I seldom write politics but this Umno presidency issue attracts much of my attention. Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said he will hand over the presidency and premiership to Najib after the March general assembly. As to whether Pak Lah will attend the assembly as an Umno president, a Prime Minister or as an Umno member, only God knows. Some say that by Umno constitution, Najib will automatically become Umno president and Prime Minister on November 10. Then, what will Pak Lah be? Najib is the only candidate not to be opposed and will definitely win it. Even if there are other last minute candidates, they wont be able to meet the qualifying mark. Has Pak Lah make a mistake when announcing that he will retire in March or did he anticipate Najib will meet his compatible opponent running for the same post, and that the no.1 position will see a contest? In any elections, a candidate winning unopposed when dateline of nomination is closed, will be declared a winner and thus has every rights to the title contested. The only technicality remains is its legitimacy has yet to be instituted by the authorised entity, i.e the Elections Commission, the Dewan Rakyat, Dewan Negara or a party's general assembly. In Najib's case, his win will be legitimate based on the party constitution that whoever wins any seat unopposed will be declared the right officio for that position. Many say it will be very confusing. By Nov 10 Pak Lah will no longer holds the party presidency. What will he be before March 2009?

Pak Lah will be Pak Lah as always...with his silly grin and shameless face.And he will continue talking about reforms until his last days at the office.He doesn't have any sense of shame.

satu persoalan yang perlu diselesaikan sendiri oleh paklah dan umno.

memanglah kalau ikut perlembagaan, najib secara automatisnya akan jadi perdana menteri apabila menang jawatan presiden umno tanpa bertanding pada 10 november ini.

saya juga hairan bagaimana paklah boleh buat silap yang sebegini walaupun saya rasa najib akan terpaksa menunggu juga mac 2009 untuk jadi perdana menteri secara mutlak.

saya kira paklah silap membuat perhitungan ketika mengumumkan perhimpunan agung pada mac 2009 dan tidak akan mempertahankan jawatannya.

satu lagi ialah, kesilapan menukar tarikh perhimpunan agung tanpa menukar tarikh pemilihan peringkat bahagian, menyebabkan tempoh beakhirnya mesyuarat bahagian dan perhimpunan agung menjadi begitu jauh jaraknya.

kita tunggulah apa paklah nak cakap bila najib menang tanpa bertanding nanti.

sdr,

biarlah paklah berundur dengan tenang. apa pun, dia manusia yang ada silap dan benar. jangan kita terlalu asyik menghina pemimpin sendiri kerana mereka adalah orang yang kita sendiri pilih melalui suara majoriti.

paklah sudah berjasa kepada negara. biar apa pun kelemahannya, dia tetap akan berada dalam sejarah negara. maka hormatilah seseorang pemimpin itu seadanya.

sedikit-sebanyak, paklah ada juga jasanya kepada negara dan rakyat semua kaum.

apabila dia tidak lagi menjadi pemimpin, dia tetap perlu dihormati dan dikenang sebagai salah seorang pemimpin umno dan malaysia, sama seperti yang lain.

orang melayu, khasnya, harus menghormati paklah sebagai orang yang berusaha menjaga hati semua pihak. beliau oleh itu layak diberi gelaran bapa perpaduan.

apa yang berlaku di belakang tabir pentadbirannya, adalah hak pihak berkuasa. jika ada pun, bukan hak kita sebagai rakyat untuk menuding jari secara membuta tuli ke arahnya.

banyak yang kita tidak tahu...

PAKLAH WILL BE NOTHING COME NOV 10. HE SHOULD LET NAJIB BECOME OUR NEW PM ON THAT PARTICULAR DATE ITSELF.

DEAR FRIENDS,

Actually its not 10 Nov ,next week Nov 2 Najib is already the President,because he needs only 29 more nomination and that will leave nobody to qualify with 58 nomination.

So its very awkward a President has to wait for another 5 months to become a Prime Minister.
