Hadi Admits People's Alliance Trying To Persuade BN MPs To Switch Sides

PENANG, April 8 (Bernama) -- PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang Tuesday admitted that the Pakatan Rakyat (People's Alliance) was trying to persuade Barisan Nasional (BN) members of parliament (MPs) to join the alliance so that it can form the federal government but wanted the effort to be free of money politics.
"We hope the BN MPs will join on their own free will," he told reporters after paying a visit to Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at the latter's office here. The alliance, consisting of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), DAP and PAS, won 82 of the 222 Parliament seats in the March 8 general election. They need a minimum of 30 BN MPs to cross-over to have a simple majority in the Dewan Rakyat. The BN won 140 seats.
Asked when the alliance expected to realise the goal, Hadi said he could not say for sure.” It might be earlier than six months, maybe longer. Man proposes but God disposes," he said when asked to comment on remarks by Penang Deputy Chief Minister I, Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin that the alliance would oust the BN government in the next five or six months.-- BERNAMA

I won’t overstay as PM, says Abdullah

KOTA KINABALU: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi says he has no intention of overstaying as Prime Minister but wants to put all things in order before retiring.Abdullah, the Umno president and Barisan Nasional chairman, wants to put the party and ruling coalition on a stronger footing first.
“I will retire one day. I will not stay any longer than I should. But there are things I would like to do now. Of course, I cannot leave at a time when the party is in this condition,” he said.
When asked if he had a succession plan in mind after naming Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak as his successor.Abdullah said he had no intention of remaining as Prime Minister “for years”, adding: “Datuk Seri Najib understands more than you can understand it.”He said he had to ensure development programmes and schemes would be implemented effectively following the March 8 polls.To another question, the Prime Minister dismissed talk that he was absolving himself of any blame for Umno and Barisan’s dismal performance in the polls.

Say whatever you want to say. Do whatever you have to do.

Be it if you are praying for leapfrogs to join your team on free transfer for the upcoming new season (despite you condemning these leapfrog(s), cursing and belittling them in the past). Or if you are wishing that the match will go into extra time (or better still to a re-match) and that you are not substituted while still wearing the captain’s armband.
Hoping that the manager will close one eye and let you play despite your obvious under-par performance through out the game. Hopelessly wishing that the manager will not see that the team needs a new captain moreover when the team is trailing with the score on injury time is 6 -8 (5+1+1+1).
Keep on wishing and praying. Insinuate and propose all that you can. Ultimately, as we all know too well, "Man proposes but God disposes!”

Good luck to all and by the way, if possible, do keep short on the politics and immediately conjure and execute all plan and services you owed to your "bosses", the little people that have voted for you.

30 days have already passed since the election. Haven’t seen that much to date apart from the politics.

Please, no more "I am still warming up" or "The game has only started about 20 minutes, you can't expect me to score 3 goals already!" analogies, this time around.

"Selamat Berkhidmat".
