In about a few hours time, Pak lah will make his announcement.
He will say, after consulting to his advisers and listening to the opinions of ulamas, he will stay the course. He is committed to stay until 2010. Provided things do not change.
What will be the repercussions?
First, Dato Najib will also make a declaration that he will defend his deputy president’s post. He will say, he too is committed to the original transfer of power plan. He is in no hurry. He is returning his loyalty to Pak Lah just like Pal Lah was loyal to Tun Razak. One good turn deserves another. After being slapped on one cheek, he will give the other. Its OK, because he like other politicians subscribed to no principles. Only interests matter.
But Sakmongkol also said ‘ provided things do not change’ the original plan will be observed as much as possible. It will be like what Shakespeare said- a plan more honoured in its breach than its observances.
Because Dato Najib has already started his Machiavellian machinations. Those deft moves wrere not lost on Pak lah’s people.
First he has unleashed his Ghurkhas to state they are offering themselves for the deputy presidents post. His main obergrupenfuhrer was Zahid Hamidi. Despite his blatant declarations that he is loyal to Pak Lah, everyone knows his master is Najib.
It was Najib who placed him on Yayasan Gerak Bakti and Kretam Holdings. In the next few days, his record at Kretam and other corporate vehicles will be exposed. Sakmongkol has said that when the cat pretends he wants to go away, the rats come out to play.
Zahid will most certainly withdraw from the deputy president’s post now that his boss and mentor Najib is forced to defend the deputy presidency. But his own flip flop decision will cost him dearly. Delegates will punish his impertinence by not even wanting him to contest the vice presidency post.
Now, Pak Lah’s own field marshals are conscious of the plans hatched by Najib. They will go after Najib’s people with a vengeance. Those people involved in the shady deals involving Kretam Holdings and Yayasan Gerak Bakti will be exposed one by one. And Najib is also related to Yayasan Gerak Bakti. People will point fingers accusing him of standing silent as transgressions took place in Yayasan Gerak Bakti. He will be accused of doing a Moshe-Dayan eye on the going ons then. Another of Najib’s right hand man, Jamaluddin ‘Jack Sparrow’ Jarjis will also be on the receiving end.
That the first phase.
Even after Najib declares that he is defending the DP’s post, Pak Lah’s people must never succumb to the tse-tse sickness of falling asleep. They will note that, Najib is repeating his famous running with hares and hunting with hounds routine. His people will go around the country asking Najib to be nominated as President. In the meantime Najib will maintain his Janus Face.
Those hangers on around Najib, will do their own shifting alliance routine. They will be seeking out pastures on Pak Lah’s turf. Some will even squeal as pariah rats often do, that Najib has been scheming all along.
After this, Pak Lah’s people will carry out their nights of the long knives, many of Najib’s people will be thrown out from the divisions and MKT.
Will report on the odd man left out- Muhyiddin.
