Ousted premier Najib to step down as head of Umno and Barisan Nasional

Goodbye Najib Abdul Razak

It is believed that lightning never strikes twice, but unfortunately for Malaysia’s former premier Najib Abdul Razak, it did.

Barely 3 days after leading Barisan Nasional (BN) to its worst electoral defeat ever in Malaysia’s GE 14, Najib has now been literally kicked out of the parties which he led.

In a stunning fall from grace, the ousted premier has announced his resignation as head of Umno and once-ruling coalition BN, at a press conference held at Menara Dato Onn today (12th May).

The Umno Political Bureau had convened, (and) we took into consideration the current difficult situation, and seeing how Umno and BN experienced a very heavy lost (in the general election), therefore I, as president Umno and BN, make the decision to resign as Umno president and chairperson of Barisan National with immediate effect.

His resignation came as Umno Youth members from at least six states – Penang, Johor, Terengganu, Kedah, FT, Selangor issued statements calling on Najib to resign as Umno’s president.

Even his number 3 (Umno vice-president and cousin of Najib), Hishammuddin Hussein called for leadership change after BN suffered an embarrassing defeat at last Wednesday’s GE 14.

I agree with the views of members and the people that Umno is in need of a new leadership, and it should be done in an orderly fashion so that the party can be restored with the dignity and principles that it upholds.

To the beloved Umno members, do not act emotionally. We are doing this for our future and our unity. I have already conveyed this to all the leaders including those in the party wings.

I urge and plea to all parties to be patient and allow space for us to do this immediately. Believe it, that I will do the best for the beloved party and country. May Allah preserve Umno.

Banned from leaving the country

Meanwhile, both Najib and his wife have been blacklisted by the Immigration Department  of Malaysia, barring them from leaving the country, after a supposed chartered flight manifest for the couple was leaked to the media on Friday (11th May).

This was confirmed by Najib himself, who tweeted:

I’ve just been informed that the Immigration Department is not allowing me and my family (from travelling) abroad. I respect the directive and will be with my family in the country.

    That’s why I say Malaysians boleh. How many kiasu, kiasi, kiabo timid like a mouse Sinkies dare to go to Changi Airport to block cars and check if the D1 & Tomboy are in the car trying to flee the country?

    Malaysians have shown to the world (especially Sinkies) what is People’s Power.

    I can tell you, the answer is ZERO!

    Likely scenario in the next GE2019/2020/2021:

    Like Malaysian Tsunami, SinKapore Tsunami also happen. The PAPigs under the LEEdership of Mai Hum lost all the constituencies(GRCs and SMCs)except Yuhua SMC Under Minister DisGraceFool! Think he will hand over power like Ahjib. Fat Hope, ok! He will use and apply his Big Daddy Lee Kayu’s Thrump Card: CALL IN THE ARMY IN CASE OF A FREAK ERECTION! Period!

    Dr M is very smart. He has warned both chiefs of Police and Army to analyse the dire situation of Ahjib and don’t follow and act BLINDLY! Without being paid World Class obscene salaries, BOTH know where they stand. Both care about the country and the Rakyat(people)as they know the writing on the wall for Ahjib and Gang. Unlike their counterpart in SinKapore, both the Army and Police Chiefs are paid World Class obscene salaries. If they want to LISTEN to the WILL of the Rakyat(people)their spouses WILL NOT ALLOW! Period. So 101%, BOTH the ARMY and POLICE will be called in case of the FAKE oops FREAK ELECTION! Operation Tsunami when all members of the OPPOSITION parties will be rounded up and put in the prisons w/o trials. Most likely they will be accused of under the influence of Foreign enemies to stage the SinKapore Tsunami! Lock up for 30 years or more for some. What do you think? Or no need to think. Sure like that one.

  • clown pap goes as najib umno:

    NotMyProblem: Do you think our SG’s ICA dared to stop the Ho-Lee couple from leaving when that time comes?

    the then Prime Minister Ms Sylvia Lim or Mr Lim Tean calls the shot.

    if the ICA does not stop the clown couple, then, the head there must be changed as Dr Mahatir changed the AG, and then charged jialat jialat for dereliction of duty.

    anyway we will be watching the Changi Airport and the Seletar Airport and the Paya Lebar just like the malaysian boleh folks were watching subang airport. we do our duty as citizens of Singapore to prevent the clown couple from run road.

    note that run road does not mean freedom for the clown couple. as Dr Mahatir has said, there is INTERPOL. just that if clown couple outside Singapore then takes a longer time to extradite them that’s all.

    the clown couple don’t go free. just takes a longer time for them to face the true Singapore court, not the one pap law two pap interpretations court.
