PM DATUK SERI ABDULLAH TO DECIDE IN 2 DAYS

It was widely reported that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will decide in 2 days time whether he will contest for the UMNO presidency or vacate his position. Datuk Seri Abdullah informed while he told a press conference in Kuala Lumpur, after meeting the international advisory panel members for Malaysian Biotechnology Corporation that he will brief Barisan Nasional leaders at a BN Supreme Council meeting scheduled on Wednesday.

Will PM Datuk Seri Abdullah vacate his 'powerful' position under the current pressure when his duties and agenda are still unaccomplished?

It is anticipated that his deputy, DPM Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak would succeed him if he resigns.

But there are rumours that Datuk Seri Abdullah would contest the presidency.
