Kadir: PM has to change or he could be removed


Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak needs to change ways and start doing the right things to ease the burden of the people, otherwise BN will risk losing the next general election, former journalist and prominent blogger Abdul Kadir Jasin said in his latest blogpost.

The former New Straits Times (NST) chief listed out three scenarios for the future leadership of Najib, and said that if Najib does not change, he risks being removed from his position, or BN risks losing the elections if Najib continues without changing his ways.

“One is for the PM to change and do the right thing to ease the hardship of the people. Two, for him to be removed if he does not change and three, he remains, nothing changes and the BN faces the risk of being thrown out at the next GE,” Kadir wrote in his blog.

He also said that Najib should listen more to the “crying pain” of the people rather than listening to “market driven advisers”, who Kadir said were “spooking” the PM with market rating downgrades.

Kadir said that the government had done subsidy reduction in the past and the people have understood, but he criticised the lumping together of all hikes at the end of 2013 and the beginning of this year when the rakyat needed money for their children’s schooling is “insensitive”.

Kadir added that since Najib became prime minister, there was a 30 percent increase in unemployed Bumiputera graduates, which now numbers at 51,000.

“So should we not be worried?” he asked.

Kadir said that he was “disgusted” by the fact that almost half of the cabinet members were abroad during year end, at the same time when floods were displacing thousands of Malaysians from their homes.

“I was told that those ministers who stayed back had to become caretakers to multiple portfolios. One had to be answerable to more than 10 ministries at a time. No wonder the Prime Minister’s Office was so secretive about the PM’s whereabouts,” he said.

“Can they please not do this ever again? Or they just don’t care,” he added.


  1. A weak indecisive and tainted pm can’t do much. Too much garbage to cover. Only a clean PM would be able to act on people like Dr. M, taib Mahmud, Daim, ling liong sik, Musa, etc, and stop extremists troops like perkasa and jais. We need someone clean without any dirty baggage to rein the country without fear or favor.

  2. Najib,or more importantly Rosmah is not changing because people seldom or never change. People do not change i.e. convert from bad to good except a few who went to rehabilitation centres. The first couple is not changing for the better. Thus they must be changed i.e. removed ….
