Dr M's Defeat

Former Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad has lost a major battle in his tussle with current leader Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

Earlier today, Dr M failed to garner enough votes to become a delegate for the upcoming convention of the United Malays National Organisation or Umno. As a delegate at the annual meeting of the ruling party in November, he would have been able to voice his grouses more effectively and may even engineer a motion of no-confidence on Badawi.

Will this be the end of the political bickering in Malaysia?

Don't bet on it. Dr M is not likely to shut up even though his former party division has rebuffed him for whatever reasons.

this is sad. but it doesn't take a delegate meeting to bring down the leader. blair's climb-down came from mere resignation of junior ministers in brown's camp. perhaps what it takes to mobilise the energy is the ambition of the successor, not the pleas of the predecessor. so, if najib is going to stay quiet, will hishamuddin step up?

Dr M is finished. He is victim of his own political patronage system which he promoted and benefited for 22 years.

cakapayam.
