Malaysia Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was interviewed by Bernama chairman Datuk Mohd Annuar Zaini on “Bersemuka Bersama Perdana Menteri” show aired by TV3 on Monday night.

All I can remember is this phrase..

“Baru masuk main tak cukup 10 minit sudah nak menghukum saya, macam boleh ni?” (I just entered a football game for less than 10 minutes and was already judged for my performance, how can that be?)

Come on, AAB has been a Member of Parliament for decades, in cabinet for years and a reasonable time as deputy PM.. all these preparations are not enough to allow him to perform as a Prime Minister?

And btw he’s Malaysia PM for almost 3 years, and in a 5-year election basis, he’s already 45 minutes into the game, and is losing by a big goal margin.

Frankly I would rather see AAB kept quiet as he used to be, the interview was stupid.. pre-planned questions and answers, nothing critical was answered asked.

[More on the interview, NST]

Some people are not happy with Badawi, some are calling for a change at the top position. Question is.. who is to replace Badawi as PM?

I peep at the current cabinet and WoW.. what a group of LEADERS we have.

Deputy PM and Minister of Defence, MOHD. NAJIB

I almost forgot Najib’s existence, where has he been all these months? The only contribution that I can remember from him is his statement that hiring Mandarin speaking employees is discrimination.

Minister of International Trade and Industry, RAFIDAH AZIZ

The whimper who approved thousands of AP to selected few including her relatives, and yet still capable of staying in the cabinet. Now that’s some achievement!

Minister of Foreign Affrairs, SYED HAMID

Thanks for everything you’ve done in dealing with Singapore for the Scenic Bridge incident.

Minister of Education, HISHAMMUDDIN


Minister Of Agriculture and Agro-Based Industry, MUHYIDDIN
It’s unexplainable, I don’t like him, serious.

They are off course other ministers that are doing their jobs fairly, but in reality they have no chance of touching the PM seat because of their limit political power.

How about other races? Gosh don’t even ask, Chinese ministers and Mr Samy Vellu is a joke, I would rather see Uncle Lim Kit Siang become PM.. thank god it’s not going to happen as well.

That lead us to one remaining dark house.. Anwar Ibrahim. Heard that United Nations want him to succeed Kofi Annan as next secretary general, sounds like a much interesting job than Malaysia PM right?

So who should replace Abdullah Badawi as Malaysia PM? Think once, think twice and suddenly I feel like perhaps Abdullah Badawi is the most suitable choice as Prime Minister currently.

    Anwar Ibrahim as the next UN’s secretary general. OMG. are you serious? bah! i think Mahathir will jump back to the PM post until he picks another PM-wannabe.

    chengsim.. there’s numerous indication that Anwar is a possible candidate, I am serious, question is whether UN are serious about it lol.

    Nah, Mahathir already said he won’t be coming back. And even if he wants to, I doubt the UMNO fellas would want him back.. he talk too much.

    I heard from malaysiakini that Najib met Dr M during their visit to London. Welcome to read article entitled “Pak Lah should put down Dr M’s insurgence” by Kim Quek dated Aug 2, 06. I like to quote a few sentences from this news “There is no doubt that Mahathir has burnt the bridges behind him and is heading for a shootout with Abdullah. The coincidence in timing of Mahathir’s new onslaught and the Umno’s government’s tightening of the screws leaves one with little room for imagination other than to conclude that this is a concerted effort born out of a renewed alliance between Mahathir and Najib to unseat the incumbent.”

    Well, need to say less.. read the article yourself!

    it’s not suprise lah, mahathir always like najib. last time when mahathir was challenged by razaleigh and musa hitam najib support mahathir mah, so kawan baik lar. i also don’t like najib become next pm, i think he is worse than badawi.

    Found the article [-link-].. interesting, never knew that Tun M is keeping the contact with Najib ‘that’ close.

    Badawi had once said that Tun M is being used by some parties that want to to see his fall, he didn’t mention the culprit.. we will have to make our own guess.

    ken.. I heard of something like that as well, I think Najib is the Youth leader during the critical period and is influential in Tun M’s victory in the end. Question is if Tun M really love Najib that much, why didn’t he made Najib to deputize him instead of Badawi?

    Arghh.. I will never understand politics.

  6. Keen Says:

    All this is mere conjecture, but Mahathir trusted Badawi enough to carry out the plans originally set out (e.g. Bridge, MV Agusta), but somewhere along the way Badawi decided its time to set his own legacy or at least, some ‘bigger picture’.

    Given the fact that Badawi has gone on a limb to snuff everything Mahathir set out for the ‘supposed’ betterment of the country after he steps down, what other choice is there aside from working with next best thing.

  7. Jee Says:
    August 10th, 2006 at 11:34 pm

    Keen.. Badawi tried too hard to impress indeed, he could set his own legacy without really neglecting all of Tun M’s big plans. Not that Tun M was always right, but projects like MSC could be given priority in continuous development instead of starting another high-tech area in Johor as proposed in the 9th Malaysia plan.

    And who should really be blame for the Scenic Bridge and MV Agusta? Both sides have their own arguments and it’s difficult to judge who’s right or wrong. Too bad for Badawi though, these problems arise during his reign, incompetency or unlucky?

    As for Tun M working with his next best thing.. that’s what I wanted to discuss initially. Is the next best thing, whoever it is, qualified enough to take over the PM seat.. and can do any better than Badawi right now?

    I think TDM is with conspiracy with Najib, Najib know he’ll be burden taking over all the TDM shit left behind, so let Badawi clean it all up and then plot bad rumours around him so that he can’t sit for long as PM and Najib happily take over with the shit clean, :).

    Do you think this theory stands?

  9. Jee Says:
    August 12th, 2006 at 11:02 pm

    Nice conspiracy lol.. if Najib is really a sneaky person, he will support Badawi to be PM for at least another 3-5 years, cause Najib would not want to take the PM hot seat at the moment with so many troubles.

    It’s a political gamble though, who knows Badawi might be able to coup with all the Malaysia issues well when given enough time by Malaysians and fella UMNO compatriots, then Najib might have to wait another few more years..

    It’s basically no chance for Najib to take over a clean government and happy Malaysia.. he would have to take down Badawi at turbulent moments if he intends to do so, and then face with all the rubbish left behind by both TDM and AAB.

    I will darely say that whoever replace Abdullah Badawi or the next PM will still be another those people. ‘Corrupt’ and taking advantage of his position. Goverment contracts to families and lots of cover up stories. The politics in Malaysia will be that way, only God knows who is clean.

    Don’t trouble yourselves about thinking who will be the next PM but pray for Fairness and Peace.

  11. Jee Says:

    bullythis.. you are actually speaking my mind.

    As I mentioned, Badawi is not perfect at the moment, but seems like there’s no other good options to replace him.

    Fairness and peace? Aren’t that asking too much lol? I will just pray for peace instead.. fairness, next life maybe.

    Amy… every Malaysian (except the criminals perhaps) is as frustrated as you are. It’s not about the PM, the whole government and other related departments are not performing well in their task… and you are right, seems like everything it’s getting worse time by time.

    if terms of politics, bodowi is the most notorios.
    najib cannot do anything coz bodowi has held him by his ball – remember the altantuya’s case. anywrong move by najib will lead him to the gallow! so this najis is a goner. he had to support bodowi even he is not willing.

    as for tun, this guy has created the mess himself in the first place. but at least he is good in running the country.

    bodowi used anwar to silent tun on current lingam issue. anwar is now serving for bodowi actually coz bodowi has no support in within the party. bodowi never trustes najis all the while.

    the problem with bodowi is that this guy tot he is sent by god. he adores himself too much.

    anwar – i hope he has somehow learn from his past doings what he has done were incorrect. he too done a lot of damages to the country when he was in finance and education ministry.

    all in all malaysia is a goner unless bodowi wakes up. i still think we have no choice but to led bodowi runs this country..hopefully he can come to his senses that he is not god sent.

    OK………….let me tell is a tough choice and plus there is not much of a choice.My opinion leave badawi alone,give him a second chance.Let him repent,do his job and probably will see if he can deliver(he can i think).TDM…leave him alone too.he reigned,ruled and what if he had done some mistakes or some of his methods were unconventional,even if they had been then why didn’t anyone voice it then but now when its almost 4 years the country has been under anothers rule.
    So why is it the whole cabinet ,pointing fingers at each other(except Badawi-he managed the crisis post 1988 crisis very professionally)This shows BDW still has some talents under his sleeves.For Allah’s sake give him a chance.Everyone makes mistakes you and me.He is just human.Lets see how he rules from now then we judge him again.
    The whole cabinet has to wake up,dont waste time bickering and accusing,then who will rule.
    My dearest politicians(MPs adn ministers)wake up.The Political tsunami that hit on March 8th,is the cause of the nations dissatisfaction-cross all religion and community.Dont blame one person for everyones failure.
    Give BDW time and chance I am sure he will proof himself from now forth.

    Some Umno leaders have their own agenda obviously… they could use this crisis to step up their political ladder by bringing down some of the current top leaders.

    What? Anwar to be appointed as UN Secretary General. You must be kidding. The post is not through an appointment one. It’s through the election process within the body. Who is Anwar to be in that post. American knows him well as a good puppet and doesn’t have any charisma except for being talkative and who likes to use phrases and proverb. In-fact, he is not as good as Karam Singh Walia, when comes to speaking. At-least Karam Singh based his talk on fact even he likes to come the conclusion without studying matters in-depth. Poralah Anwar Ibrahim. BABI (Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim)
