The Future of UMNO and PKR

Pak Lah evidently cannot take on Anwar alone. Right now, I dont think even UMNO can fight Pakatan Rakyat and Anwar especially.

Talks about the takeover will even accelerate Anwar's chances to power. All these while, Anwar's target has been Najib.

Pak Lah do get criticisms from Anwar but those are soft attacks. Mainly, Anwar says things like Barisan Nasional Government is corrupt, UMNO's economic mismanagement and weak leadership and a questionable judiciary system.

Najib gets words from Anwar and his camp like "Altantuya!"or "Port Dickson". I wonder what Anwar knows about Najib and what happened in Port Dickson. Anwar hinted this during the Permatang Pauh by election campaign.

Well, RPK in the past often target Datin Seri Rosmah, saying that she abused her power with military trucks used to transport her shopping, she was there during the murder of Altantuya, Malaysia will be controlled by Rosmah behind the scenes and many more.

Najib was the real target of the Opposition.

I have no idea if RPK's reports that Rosmah was at the scene of the murder or Rosmah abused her power when Najib held the portfolio of Menteri Pertahanan.

I also do not know whether it is the truth or not about Rosmah and her spending spree in London. This, I will comment. If she has the financial capabilities to do so, why can't she spend on a RM 20,000 handbag? Is that wrong? She has her basic human rights to buy what she wants.

Other than this, I will not comment any other things about Rosmah. If there are evidences, then bring it up to the police and the Parliament. I am sure even the Conference of Rulers will slam Najib and Rosmah if there were any misdeeds.

Hearsays and smokebombs can create alot of misconceptions. We should all avoid these, at all costs.

UMNO must realise that people are looking at 3 choices - Anwar, Pak Lah and Najib. Between these three, who would you choose?

I hope UMNO realise that there might be a risk if Pak Lah handsover to Najib. Pak Lah's political future cannot go further than 2010. But what about Najib?

UMNO should think properly in December when they have their General Assembly. I have to apologize to Tun Dr Mahathir because I cannot agree with him that other BN component parties should chip in to oust Pak Lah.

My view is that MCA, MIC and Gerakan should not interfere in UMNO's party politics. UMNO has never interfered in MCA, MIC and Gerakan's party elections.

To unseat Pak Lah from his Premier-ship, Pak Lah has to be unseated from the post of President of UMNO. If MCA, MIC and Gerakan interferes, then will it not open a door to further chaos of perhaps racial sentiments and it might even open the door for inter-party elections influence.

UMNO needs to settle the matter themselves. All UMNO members must consider the fact that it is now a choice of Anwar, Najib and Pak Lah.

Perhaps influential and powerful men like Tengku Razaleigh, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin or even Raja Nazrin Shah should place themselves into the scene. Any combination of these three will hit Anwar's chances and future hard. Just like how Jui Meng threw himself in the scene and spoiled the party for Soi Lek.

UMNO must think wisely. MCA, MIC and Gerakan can throw in some opinions but not interfere with UMNO's politics. Otherwise, Barisan Nasional will be in chaos and inter-party relationships might face problems in the future.

As for PKR, any plans for the future? What's next after Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim? Or should I ask who's next in line? I hope Pakatan Rakyat also can sit down and formulate a proper alliance just like Barisan Nasional.

There is a need for Pakatan Rakyat to strengthen themselves first, and not charge like a bull into Putrajaya just like that. The people will soon ask questions like what will happen to the alliance of DAP-PKR-PAS when Anwar is no longer there?

Assuming Pakatan Rakyat governs Malaysia one day, and if we put Hadi and Kit Siang as the DPM, will Hadi be the new Premier after Anwar? Or will it be Azmin Ali? Nurul Izzah? Khalid Ibrahim?

I am very curious to know what Pakatan Rakyat's model is. To reform the judiciary, corrupt practices and race relations, I believe even Barisan Nasional can do it. It can be as some people term - an Opposition from within.

Thus, Pakatan Rakyat needs to show us why they are worthy of our support to be the new Government of Malaysia. But their chances might take a hit if UMNO play their cards right with their leadership choices.

Interesting, isn't it? Everyone is taking lots of breaks from their work and activities to read the papers, the blogs and listen to the radio about politics in Malaysia.

Instead of emulating the Japanese hardworking culture, we are turning into a politically crazy community like Pakistan, Indonesia, Taiwan, Thailand and perhaps the United States of America.

Majukah Malaysia? I wonder.

I don't think Barisan Nasional could do the reform.

If you used to hear about VK Lingam case, then Mahathir's son is inside Barisan Nasional. That will be a big problem for a reform of judiciary system.

Mahathir is responsible enough in VK Lingam case. VK Lingam himself is Mahathir's private lawyer.
