At last Pak Lah made the right decision to step down as UMNO President by March 2009. As the Captain of UMNO and BN, he is fully responsible for the states the party and coalition are currently facing and sinking. It is a responsible and courageous decision that must be respected and appreciated.
Of course there were handful of supporters that have been screaming at Pak Lah residence and PWTC requesting him to stay on but then this must be the same people that have been giving him misguiding advice and support that leads to his downfall. The Pakatan Rakyat leaders were of course very disappointed; they too have been encouraging Pak Lah to stay on because their chance of destroying UMNO and BN will be definite if Pak Lah stays on. They have been manipulating on Pak Lah weaknesses to pressures the Federal Government and enticing pale hearts politicians to practice political frogging. Recently it was worthy to note that PAS and DAP leaderships have openly declared that they are not in favor of running over the ruling government through political frogging. An act that must be despised on whatever reasons. You can say about all sorts of bad practice and deeds of the BN Government but the fact remains that Malaysia is better off then many country in this world and any country surrounding us. If the BN is so manipulative in the elections the PR will not be able to win any states in Malaysia.
The fact is, Pakatan Rakyat is not that strong but UMNO and BN is becoming weaker due to unpopular leaderships and poor response to the current expectations of the Rakyat. The changing of Premiership in UMNO will provide the platform for UMNO to reengineer itself and cleanup their leaderships rolls from corrupts and incapable leaders. To survive UMNO has no choice but make way for the true Patriots among them to take on the PR. Those who were responsible for the downfall of UMNO and BN should not be considered for any key positions in the organizations. This includes former MBs and Wakil Rakyat that have lost in the last elections. It includes even Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah that too old and could not do much even in Kelantan. For the corrupts and losers do the right thing make way for the Patriot among your comrades, who put AGAMA, BANGSA DAN NEGARA above themselves. Let loose the UMNO Patriots to face the PR and the chance is that they will not only win but recover the losing ground.
