With various accusation and criticism raised against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and his administration, it would be most appropriate for him (Datuk Seri Abdullah) to call for a SNAP GENERAL ELECTIONS to gauge who will administer the country after his intended departure in March 2009.
The recent by-elections in Permatang Pauh and Kuala Terengganu have indicated that the rakyat is really unhappy with the Barisan Nasional administration, although various 'goodies' and smear campaign employed had backfired.
Just try to hand over the premiership to his deputy would be most inappropriate since he had failed to convince the voters that the BN administration is what Malaysians need and look forward to.
The position of Prime Minister is given to the member of parliament who has the confidence of the Dewan Rakyat and just trying to hand over the baton is now considered outdated since these leaders have created a scenario that the failure were attributed to the weakness of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah.
In actual fact, the whole Barisan Nasional leadership need to be overhauled, with new and younger faces to restore the confidence the rakyat will have towards the Barisan Nasional.
In order for such a CHANGE a snap general elections would be the answer and since it is the absolute prerogative to dissolve and call for the fresh general elections, it would be best of him to use this to rebuild his integrity and reputation with the rakyat.
Then, the issue of incompetency and so forth would never arise again and parties who have been calling for his (PM Datuk Seri Abdullah) immediate exit would stop making these calls in fear of their own misdeeds and abuse of position.
Let the rakyat elect the suitable candidates who will administer the country, Pah Lah.
