SHAHRIR TO RESIGN AS MINISTER NEXT WEDNESDAY...WHO ELSE?

With the UMNO Annual Assembly about to be over and with 'unexpected' election results, the losers would have to decide or the incoming UMNO President would decide to retain or terminate their ministerial position. Usually to avoid embarrassment, those who lost would gracefully quit. Just giving lame excuses that they are unable to perform since they had lost the confidence of the mere UMNOputras is just excuses to have delegates feel 'uneasy' for not electing them to office.

It was reported that Minister of Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad will tender his resignation at the weekly cabinet meeting next Wednesday, since he had lost to retain the UMNO Supreme Council post.

It is further speculated that there are a few others who had lost will also tender their resignation. Among them are Tourism Minister, Datuk Sri Azalina Othman Said who has also lost to retain her position while she is currently being investigated by the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC).

It seem certain that most of outgoing UMNO President Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's men had lost their positions giving incoming UMNO President Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak a free hand in managing the party with much ease.
