NAJIB SWORN-IN 6TH MALAYSIAN PRIME MINISTER

Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak was sworn-in as the 6th Prime Minister after taking a Oath of Office in front of the Yang DiPertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin at 10.10am this morning at Istana Negara.

This ends speculations of the transitional crisis and it is believed that the new Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib will have an uphill task since the country is faced by poor support for his ruling party Barisan Nasional by the Malaysian rakyat and the serious global recession currently faced.

His first test of trust will be revealed at the 3 elections that would be held on 7 April 2009. Early indications reveal the Opposition are the favourites.

This ends the political career of outgoing Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who had been branded a 'sleeping PM' but as a good gesture was awarded a 'Tun' tittle for his service to the people by the Yang DiPertuan Agong this morning.
