Dr M is scheduled to hold a media conference at his Mines residence at 11 am today (Sunday 9/3).
As usual, bloggers are welcomed.
Not, this is not a wake-up call. After the Barisan Nasional's worst showing in the history of the country's general election yesterday, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi is expected to do the right thing and that is to resign.
The Umno President and BN chairman lost Penang, his own home state. He also lost Kedah, Perak and Selangor. And despite everything, he failed to take Kelantan away from Pas. Many of his senior Ministers or/and party component leaders lost their seats yesterday, including S. Samy Vellu, Shahrizat Jalil, Kayveas, Aziz Shamsuddin, and Zainudin Maidin.
Interestingly, Umno deputy president Mohd Najib Abd Razak delivered Pahang and won his Pekan parliamentary seat by a bigger majority compared with 2004. The party will most likely look at this and weigh the options for this year's Umno elections, expected in August.
Whatever the Tun plans to say at the media conference today, I don't think it Pak Lah wold enjoy hearing it.
