It has been a long tine that an entry is made in this blog. The reason for the elegant silence is to remain neutral during the last Malaysian General Election 12 and look at the situation from afar. And as the script goes, it is clear that the ruling party was given a "wake up" call to buck up its act it it wants to stay relevant in Malaysian politics.
When the dust settles, the ruling party is still at a loss of their sudden fortune. Post mortems on the results were made by all and sundry, from the politicians to the main stream media to the alternative media to the blogs etc etc...
However, most of the analysis rightly points out that the sudden downturn of events concerning Barisan Nasional is directly proportional to AAB. It is quite clear that AAB has failed to harness the party's strength when he choose to listen to his inner circle in choosing the candidates for the election. The rest is history...
Now, left right and center, AAB is being haunted and hunted to let go the reins of both Barisan Nasional and the premiership of the country. More and more UMNO divisions are asking for AAB to give way to his Deputy...
Apart from Selangor, Kedah and Penang UMNO divisions has also requested for AAB to step down. Tg Razaleigh, the Kelantan prince has offer himself to contect the UMNO presidency as well as urge UMNO to convene its EGM to discuss the problems facing UMNO today.
AAB is his bid to remain afloat and relevant is courting the Malaysian judiciary by indicating some form of back bay to the previous lord President who was tried and dismissed due to the tribunal seating, some 20 years ago.
Apart from that, AAB is also trying to win some support by trying to potray that the Anti Corruption Agency (ACA) shall be free from political influence. However, his effort falls short when his agenda is not clearly defined.
One of the influential Malaysian blog openly questions whether AAB can last 100 days.
On the other hand, the current opposition parties are able to consolidate their gains and are making progress in leaps and bounds when their political agenda is more appealing to the public.
It is a fresh change and maybe, just maybe the time is right for Malaysians to try a new Government...
