Najib is keeping to his current stand not to contest against his boss as yet and his commitment to the ‘treaty’ is intact.
Apparently, Kg Ubai branch was the first branch in Pekan to meet yesterday, and nominated him as the party president in place of Abdullah.
That made Najib and his close lieutenants instantly instructed the branch to retract the decision so as not to let his boss feel embarrassed, just like Balasubramaniam did by retracting from his original statutory declaration.
Najib is too focused in getting his boss ‘Badawi’ impressed by him as the only way for him to move up is through the so called ‘treaty’ that he penned with him (Badawi).
This is obviously marriage of ‘tangkap basah’ between Najib and Pak Lah that binds them temporarily while Pak Lah finds his way to take apart the marriage within this two long years.
Najib is clearly caught in a web and that is normal for any misbehaving leader to face.
I just can’t imagine how Najib can be a good Prime Minister as he can be arm-twisted by dangerous and dubious foreign elements which in the end will cost the nation its sovereignty and cease to be fully independent state.
With the latest development it should be conclusive that Najib is a tame tiger for lame duck Abdullah and this is obvious.
Abdullah has a lot of unsettled issues against him personally and he has to find every bit of chance available to extend his premiership.
Muhyiddin, on the other hand is now trapped as his secret pack with Najib may earn him a nasty consequence of the latest Abdullah/Najib ‘treaty’.
His chance to maintain his VP post is clearly at stake as new set of nominations will set in for that position in the coming party election.
Hishamuddin, Isa Samad, Khaled Nordin, Shafie Afdal, Mustapha Mohammad, Zahid Hamidi, Ali Rustam and many more are in the list.
Everybody is now focusing on Muhyiddin, eagerly wanting to witness his stand in the current situation.
He is quite vocal in his views and statements so far which do not impress the lame duck President.
The question is can Muhyiddin have the ‘balls’ to be side by side with anyone going against Abdullah?
Can he believe to some view that this time around, only the person with courage will ultimately survive? Does he believe this theory? Or he still wants to play the same political game of destitute politicians like the rest?
Does he view this situation as a blessing for him?
Let him do the answering part, but the clue to the answer is very clear and latent: He has to be in line with anyone confronting Pak Lah if he wants his aspiration to be the PM becomes reality. Before that he needs to be the DPM for couple of years.
What he needs is just a bit more courage. That’s it.
