Can Malaysia Survive With Current Leadership?


It’s worthy to note the impact of this worldwide resignation spree led by the Japanese PM and we shall see if this exodus is going to spread to Malaysia when the embattled PM Abdullah Ahmad Badawi was reported to be under pressure by his own party Umno to step down by October 9.

On September 1, Japanese Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda resigned abruptly after just a year in office. Lack of strong leadership has plagued Japan, even as it grapples with a host of new problems, including the rise of neighboring China and a slowdown in its $4.7 trillion economy. The resignations of both Fukuda and Abe, who led short-lived, unpopular governments, have highlighted the lack of stability here since the popular Junichiro Koizumi stepped down two years ago.

Thailand Prime Minister Samak Sundaravej was removed from the office after the Constitution Court ruled in a unanimous verdict on Tuesday that the two TV cooking shows of the PM violated the charter ban on outside employment.

On Saturday, South African President Thabo Mbeki agreed to step down following the decision of the National Executive Committee of the African National Congress to fire him. He agreed to resign after the ruling party ordered him Saturday to step down, a move that could heighten turmoil in Africa's economic powerhouse. The action followed by, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert formally announced his intention to resign on sunday.

So is that Malaysia’s current leadership capable to strengthen its economic and politics? Or we need some immediate power transition which had happened in several nations around the world?

MALAYSIA still can survive with current leadership but we can feel that economy will go down. Many investors especially from europe and america don't want to invest in Malaysia for the moment. So, the current leadership focusing on middle east investors. Since their economy also not so strong, it would worsen the situation by the time Najib take over the leadership. Since Najib is Finance Minister, we can see in future that, CIMB will be National Bank of Malaysia.
