"I will not stand for the presidency of Umno in the coming elections. My current term as Umno president ends in March next year," he told reporters after the meeting.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi will not defend the Umno presidency. He told leaders of the Barisan Nasional (BN) component parties here today that he will quit as party president by March next year.
This will pave the way for Datuk Seri Najib Razak, who is favoured to win the party presidency, to take over as Prime Minister if BN remains in power then.
Erm. Do you think Najib will win the chair? Or maybe Kuli? Erm.. Just wait and see. Erm anyway, thanks Pak Lah.
