To Hold Off Team B... (Src: Malaysiakini)

Unsatisfied of how things are going, UMNO is throwing an emergency meeting in the morning. This of course has caught many people including Muhyiddin Yassin and Mike Tyson Taib off guard. The obvious reason is simple. Many cannot tolerate a handover in June 2010 and wanted to push it up one year earlier.

According to Malaysiakini, the 2010 transition plan has received a poor to lukewarm response from many state divisions although good support from Kelantan and Penang, the latest being Selangor itself. The state divisions decision is that they want the grassroots to decide the fate of Abdullah, not the supreme council itself.

Secondly, this who meeting is the idea of Abdullah Badawi himself. Because of the response from the state divisions, he would throw in this emergency meeting. Of course he knew that Najib wants to become head and Prime Minister with everything intact. It is hoped that the meeting is likely to postpone the elections in December, rendering a no contest game between Team Abdullah / Najib against Team Ku Li / Muhyiddin.

For Najib, the safest thing and a win-win plan is to let Abdullah remain for a few more months and hand over. That means pushing it up by a year earlier and beat the competition, taking everything intact.
