Pak Lah In Johor To Meet the 20 Umno Leaders...

.....who had asked the Umno president "to go on leave".

They were said to have asked him to hand over his duties as Umno president and prime minister to his deputy Najib Abdul Razak during this period.

According to Malaysiakini, the call was made during a meeting between 20 division leaders with Johor Menteri Besar Abdul Ghani Othaman at his residence in Johor Bahru early last week.

But six other division leaders, who hold ministerial positions, were not invited for the meeting.

They are Umno Youth chief Hishammuddin Hussein (Semberong), Shahrir Abdul Samad (Johor Bahru), Khaled Nordin (Pasir Gudang), Syed Hamid Albar (Kota Tinggi), Muhyiddin Yassin (Pagoh) and Dr Abdul Latiff Ahmad (Mersing).

Also not invited were Tourism Minister Azalina Othman Said and Deputy Human Resources Minister Noraini Ahmad.

However, Shahrir was quick to refute the report saying that no resolution was made at the meeting.

"The meeting did not pass any resolution or take any decision to be conveyed to the Umno president. Those present shared the views and on my part, I stated that rehabilitating Umno should be the main priority," he was quoted to have told a press conference to announce the National Intellectual Property Day 2008 here Wednesday.

I cant imagine going on leave for four years, yup, 1,460 days and then when I report for duty, my boss tells me to go on leave again...

If that happens, I would just resign. I wonder what Badawi will do. Its hard to predict the guy. He's not normal. No normal man will love his son-in-law that much in the first place.

They might as well ask him to leave.
Ini lah cara orang melayu. Bercakap atau buat ape ape semua dengan beralas.
If they really ask him to go on leave, then PakLah should start packing .... call the moving companies the logistic people and plan for transporting all his belongings to Perth....
..hehehhe...jangan mareh..
