Assalamualaikum Pak Lah!
Well at 10:00 a.m., Malaysia once again had a smooth transition of power with Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak being sworn in as the sixth Prime Minister. Continuing the new tradition of bestowing the title of Tun to the departing Prime Minister and spouse, both Pak Lah and his wife are now Tun's in honour of their services to the nation. It had been a tumultous six years for Tun Abdullah and he could have done more, but I guess he was too nice to really move the behemoth onto his tracks towards achieving his ambitions for a greater Malaysia. Nonetheless the undeniable fact is that with this handover, our nation has witnessed two occassions of a peaceful transfer of power from a sitting Prime Minister to his successor without him losing a general election. Thus despite what is being claimed by many opposition sycophants that we now live in a repressive and undemocratic society. So I say to you how many countries that are really under a dictatorship can claim a similar transition and this is a clear cut evidence that Malaysia remains a democratic constitutional monarchy state. Amen!
