Power Transition On The Go

First and foremost, my apologies for not updating the blog over the last nine days. All comments, which are deemed "publishable" are up.
Now back to the current on-goings. Last week the Prime Minister announced that he would not seek re-election for Umno presidency in March next year. This would mean that the Deputy Prime Minister would move up a rank and run for presidency. The talk among Umno circles is that vice-president Muhyiddin Yassin will be Najib's running mate and from the looks of it, this will become a reality. Umno divisions have started the nominations and so far nominations have come in only for Najib and Muhyiddin combination.
Well, some will ask me why I am wasting my time talking about Umno. This is not a waste of time as convention has it, that the Umno president and deputy will eventually become PM and DPM. And that is important to all Malaysians.
On another front the Opposition leader has said that he would still take over the government by end of the year. First it was Sept 16, then by end of Sept, and after that it was Oct 13, the day Parliament begins its final sitting for the year.
Now it has become by end of the year. Hope he just plays an effective opposition leader than setting dates. Maybe, he should get into prediction, like Nostradamus or something, but the problem would be unlike the great Nostradamus, Anwar's predictions fail all the time!
