Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will step down as Umno president and Prime Minister in June 2010. This is confirmed.
He will then hand over power to his deputy, Najib Abdul Razak.
Yes.. Najib is his chosen successor.
My earlier posting!
According to Malaysiakini, Umno president Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is expected to announce that there will be no contest for the top two posts in Umno.
He will be making the announcement after the party's supreme council meeting which he chaired this afternoon.
Malaysiakini cited Umno sources saying that Abdullah will stay on as Umno president (and PM) until June 2010. After that he will hand over the presidency (and premiership) to his deputy Najib Abdul Razak.
Still waiting for confirmation. But if that is true....whoa! A very looong two years!
