And to not resign as Prime Minister.
Here's the Bernama story:
PUTRAJAYA, March 9 -- Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has promised Umno supporters that he will continue to fortify and strengthen the party and Barisan Nasional (BN).
Speaking to about 1,000 party supporters at Seri Perdana, his official residence here, he also pledged to implement the coalition's election manifesto to make the country safe, peaceful and prosperous.
The Umno president said the presence of party supporters from various Umno branches in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor at Seri Perdana tonight had given him the strength to continue with the struggle for the people.
"We want to continue with our agenda for development to make sure that the people continue to enjoy the fruit of the nation's progress.
"I know it's not only you who supported me... there are many others out there who want to convey their support and I thank all of you for that," he said in his brief speech in front of his supporters here.
Earlier, when he arrived at Seri Perdana, Abdullah was greeted with thunderous claps and the shouts of "Hidup Pak Lah" (Long Live Pak Lah).
While stressing that he would not resigned as the prime minister, Abdullah said, on the contrary he would seek an audience with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin tomorrow to take his oath of office as the prime minister.
Abdullah admitted that he had received a number of text messages from people who wanted to know if he would resign.
Abdullah said: "I don't know why the need for me to resign; our party won... although not with a two-third majority, we won (the election)."
He said he was not afraid of anyone, let alone those who call for his resignation, because he only feared Allah SWT.
Now, I'd say that the 1,000 Umno members don't represent the rest of the country.
BN lost heavy -- FIVE states in the hands of the Opposition and a simple majority in Parliament.
