Mukhriz tells PM: Do the right thing
Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi faced mounting calls to quit today after his ruling coalition suffered a humiliating setback in elections seen as a referendum on his leadership.
Asked if the outcome was a vote of no confidence in his leadership, which has been criticised as weak and ineffective, Abdullah responded: “Maybe. There are a lot of messages from the people.”
“There is no pressure at this time,” he said when asked if he faced calls for him to resign.
But pressure did come, notably from former premier Mahathir Mohamad, who handed over to Abdullah in 2003 after two decades leading the Umno which dominates the Barisan Nasional coalition.
“My view is he has destroyed Umno, destroyed the BN and he has been responsible for this,” Mahathir told reporters.

The election results were a disaster for Barisan Nasional. After 39 years this has happened where opposition candidates have taken over 5 states. You just don’t continue as if everything is alright, since I have a simple majority I can still rule the country. If this done it is a mockery to all those who cast their votes including those voting the opposition. Elections are a way to feel the pulse of the voters whether the Government has over 4 years of service been successful or not. Apparently, things are not good. If things had been rosy the possibility arises the ruling party would have obtained more seats than the last time. Barisan National just won by the whiskers, Some thing is rotten in Denmark.There are 2 ways to solve this dilemma: one resign and the other ask for a last opportunity to make amends for all the failures during the last 4 years, including a complete overhaul of the government machinery and take immediate action against corrupted ones. The monotonous answer, it is not easy to prove corruption, is out of fashion, without evidence the corrupted issues would not have originated in the first place. For example Rafidah, is there no evidence and what about the oft repeated 18 corrupted VIPs.

There should be no 4th floor interference, as a Prime Minister, you consult but the onus of making the decision is yours. You don’t sign a paper at the last moment before leaving the office and call it I have done my job.

People want good governance and you being the first citizen must set the example what that means. You can’t say to the people tighten your belts, when buying for yourself a bigger one. That’s not fair.
