As we all know, Barisan Nasional (BN) was denied the two third majority in the parliament and put to shame. BN suffered its biggest loss since 1969. To be more exact, BN was denied the two third majority for the first time since 1969!
Could be because of overconfidence. Could be because of pure ego. Could be both. Or could be because people are just sick of Barisan Nasional’s administration. I think it’s the fusion of all of the above.
The hot discussion at the moment is whether or not Pak Lah should step down. Within UMNO itself, there are already groups who support his retaining the position and there are groups who think that he should relinquish his stewardship.
Whatever it is, one thing for sure, his biggest critic, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad said, “My view is he has destroyed Umno, destroyed the BN and he has been responsible for this”. He also reiterated by saying, “I am sorry but I apparently made the wrong choice,” addressing the issue about his decision of choosing Pak Lah as his successor back when Tun Mahathir was in power.

However, at the present moment, evidence points to Pak Lah’s intention in retaining his old job and become the Prime Minister of Malaysia. He had an audience with the Agong yesterday and looks like he’ll be sworn in as the Prime Minister today at 10.30am. (Source: Malaysiakini.com)
A lot of the BN leaders also expressed their support for Pak Lah. (Nak bodek la tu…) (Source: NST)
So, what do you think? Should Pak Lah becomes a gentleman, accept full responsibility, give way to a much more capable leader, and resign?
