Najib is attempting his best shot to maintain at his current position in the party and the government. He is hectic these few weeks and months soliciting support from his own party leaders as there were quite clear indications that he would be toppled by his own colleagues in the party. He is preparing to defend himself from being challenged by his colleague as the party president. He is also in defense of his position as the Prime Minister as pressure for him to quit is becoming more exerting.
The sitting PM is facing fierce pressure from numerous organizations including some from UMNO that he is in need to retire as he is doomed to be the most irresponsible and detested PM in all time history of this country. The most disturbing person to Najib was his former mentor Dr Mahathir Mohammed. Dr Mahathir on the hand has the moral right to pull him down as he was the one who paved the way for Najib to ascend the undeserving positions as Prime Minister and the party president.
Najib should be more thankful to Dr Mahathir as it was the weakness of Dr Mahathir that Najib expediently took advantage to successfully holding lofty position. By his admission Mahathir has the strong tendency to choose wrong persons to lead the country and the worst of them all was Najib Razak. However there is an easy answer as to why Dr Mahathir had made recurring mistakes in his choices.
Mahathir had always put his personal preferences ahead of what the country’s leadership essentials. Both Abdullah Badawi and Najib were weak personalities he props up to be leaders whom he (Mahathir) thinks would be grateful to him in return for the positions they earned undeservingly. Mahathir should now realize that choosing the undeserving persons to lead will be ungainly to the nation and to him personally.
In effect Mahathir will be read by history as the leader who underwrote to the destruction of the nation by propping up contemptible and unworthy leaders to inherit his leadership. That history will stay forever and will be read by generations after generations. Mahathir does not have the privilege of time as his age is fast catching up.
He won’t have the age of Prophet Noah who lived for 950 years to see and mend all the destructive consequences of leaderships of his mold as I have recurrently mentioned in my writings. It must be conclusively confessed that Muhyiddin and the rest of the leaders in the Supreme Council are all leaders who are within the mold that Mahathir has developed for more than two decades of time. Replacing Najib with anyone of them is no change.
