Najib is firm with his decision not to quit despite of strong pressure to resign for the past weeks and months. In his defence Najib is acting just like a dictator in the making. In actual fact he is already a full blown dictator. That was why this blog has been reminding everybody especially in UMNO for the past years that a weak leadership that wants to continue ruling us will only have one choice, i.e. be a dictator.
When he sacked Muhyiddin as a Deputy Prime Minister, he didn’t realize that Muhyiddin was still the Deputy President of the party. He may have good reasons to sack Muhyiddin from his position in the party but Najib is known for doing things without enough thinking. As I have mentioned few days back, sacking Muhyiddin from the government without sacking him from the party position, Najib is inflicting his own troubles. Najib is now facing heavier burden to face the consequences of his sacking of the AG as well as the arrest on many officers from MACC who were doing investigations on 1MDB.
His acts to stall the investigations on the 1MDB have been perceived by the public as the acts to conceal the actual corrupt practices in 1MDB. Surely Najib won’t be stalling the efforts to investigate the alleged corrupt goings on in 1MDB if he has nothing to hide in the issue. He has more reasons to allow the investigations to proceed unhindered for him to come out clean from the injurious issue. Hence it was conclusive that the allegations of corrupt and plundering in 1MDB were real and Najib is trying hard to frustrate the investigations to keep the public uninformed about the dubious acts of the debatable 1MDB.
Now Najib is declaring in the open that he is not resigning as he feels that he is strongly insulated by the muscles he has as the Prime Minister. From now on Najib is going to be a full fledge dictator and anybody can be arrested anytime and anywhere. We are in a situation which is we have not experience before and if no one is prepared to exercise a national corrections we should now start to adjust our way of life from a reasonably democratic environment to a government that is led by a dictator. Right now Najib has a Deputy who is known for his inability to think well and always act without decorum. With Zahid by his side, dictatorship will come by expeditiously.
Najib claims that he has three million UMNO members behind him who want him to continue ruling the country. He forgets that we need a Prime Minister of all Malaysians not just for UMNO members. He must realize that there are huge numbers of Malays outside UMNO who want to have their say in electing a Prime Minister. There are millions of non- Malays who were not given the say to elect a Prime Minister. The Sabahans and the Sarawakian have not been having the opportunity to be hand-in-glove with the small number of Malays in electing the Federation’s Prime Minister.
Najib should stop loitering around in Putrajaya as resting his laurels on UMNO Malays to stay put as Prime Minister is indigestible.
