Below are several questions posed by the Malaysian Insider:
Will Abdullah Ahmad Badawi stand down, admit his mistakes and walk away into the horizon?
Will the UMNO division heads and federal ministers he meet today tell him to lay down a time table for immediate succession before party polls in December?
Or will he be too thick skin to do that, and continue instead his premiership and defend his position as party president?
If Johor UMNO lets up, it may spell the end of Abdullah.
Is he still the man to steer the sinking ship of UMNO so that (woe betide!) his deputy Najib Tun Razak can take over sooner more than later?
Will he finally admit his mistakes and take responsibility for the horrendous loss of BN in the last general elections? Will he the, in admitting all his losses, abandon the sinking UMNO-ship?
How much more abuse is he willing to take, from party members right to his ex-boss Mahathir Mohammad?
Whatever it is, I smell many rats. And most of them are already running away from the captain of the sinking ship.
