He said that it was his moral obligation to step down as the political party had suffered serious defeat in the 14th general election.
“As the Umno president and BN chairman, I take full responsibility and I step down from my positions with immediate effect,” he told a news conference at the Putra World Trade Centre here.
Najib has taken the right and in reality the ONLY course of action. He is finished in every UMNO respects and aspects.
But I wonder who will now take over the reins?
Zahid, Hisham, KJ?
There is of course a possible 4th candidate, namely Mahathir Mohamad, who currently does not belong to any party, wakakaka. It could well be a much welcomed glorious return by UMNO of the all conquering hero.
But Mahathir can now add another PM pelt to dry on his fence. Other than Tunku, AAB and Najib, he has put paid to other potential PM-wannabe like Ku Li, Musa Hitam, Anwar Ibrahim.
