...I imagine for a lot of people who are hoping that Umno president and Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will step down by the end of the year.
Pak Lah announced yesterday that he will be stepping down in June 2010 after which he will hand over power to his chosen successor, (deputy Umno president and DPM) Najib Abdul Razak.
And for those who had convinced Pak Lah to stay on (for reasons known to them or for very obvious reasons): well, there's enough time to do...whatever.
So much for all those speculations that there'd be contests for the top two Umno posts, that there'd be changes in the party leadership...
Pak Lah said that the next two years would give him enough time to help rejuvenate and strengthen the party.
