Hari ini, Mei 19, 2008 saya mengumumkan keputusan saya untuk keluar
daripada UMNO. Isteri saya turut bersama.

“Because Datuk Seri Abdullah is blind and deaf and does not understand the message by Barisan members, because some Umno members have joined in, because the democratic process is not moving, because Umno now is no longer the Umno established 62 years ago, I find my participation as a member meaningless and no longer useful,” he said in his blog.

What your friends have to say for now (at least within a week) :

The Semangat 46 clans:

Pak Lah – "Beliau tidak akan tunduk kepada desakan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad supaya beliau meletak jawatan sebagai Perdana Menteri dan Presiden Umno serta yakin majoriti anggota Umno akan terus setia kepada kepimpinan parti sekarang." - Bernama

Abdullah also said he did not see why he should quit as Umno president and prime minister, as he “still had work to do”. – TheStar

Ahmad Zahid Hamidi - "I welcome his decision. It is high time for him" to leave” - Malaysian Insider

Shahrir Abdul Samad said Dr Mahathir’s hatred for Abdullah was stronger than his love for Umno, otherwise he would not make a decision to quit and call Umno ministers and deputy ministers to follow in his footsteps. Shahrir also suggested that Jerlun MP Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir should follow in his father’s footsteps.

Rais Yatim said the party leadership must begin efforts to rehabilitate the party. He said Dr Mahathir’s resignation might divide the party and the Malays even further but the next few weeks would be crucial to see how many members would follow suit.

Ahmad Shabery Cheek said it seemed like history was repeating itself. “The three of them died without being Umno members and Tun (Dr Mahathir) must not do this too,” he said, adding that the former premier might regret his move later.

Tun Musa Hitam.- “…to quit Umno is upsetting but it may actually be a blessing in disguise because a "thorn in the flesh" has been removed from the party” TheStar

KuLI, “I have my own party. Why must I quit the party? I will remain in the party to challenge the president (Abdullah) and will fight to clean up the party,”

The ex-Apple Polishers

SHARM EL-SHEIKH (Egypt): Najib Tun Razak is willing to talk to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad over his sudden resignation from the party.

Mohamed Khaled Nordin, "Tindakan Dr. Mahathir keluar UMNO merupakan satu kehilangan besar kepada parti kerana sumbangan beliau kepada UMNO sangat besar" - Utusan

Syed Hamid Albar said: "He is doing more damage than good…”

Mohd Ali Rustam said he was “shocked” and said,“I hope Tun will retract his statement and return to the party. We need him to strengthen Umno.”

Muhammad Muhammad Taib said he was surprised by the news, but added that every member had the right to leave the party.

Hishamuddin Hussein Onn, “At a time when Umno is making efforts to renew the spirit of members to gain support, this incident does not help,” he said.

Rahim Tamby Chik, “It's shocking news to me. If true, then I would say that it is an interesting yet tragic development for the party,” he said yesterday. TheStar

MCA vice-president Ong Tee Keat described Dr Mahathir's announcement as a “shocking surprise”.“This is going to make the prevailing political scenario more perplexing.“I am hopeful that Umno has sufficient experience and maturity to address such problems,” he said.

MCA secretary-general, Ong Ka Chuan has called on former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to reconsider his decision to quit Umno. Ong said he was saddened by Dr Mahathir’s sudden announcement.

Gerakan vice-president Chang Ko Youn said he felt that Dr Mahathir's decision was “a bit too hasty”.

MIC president Samy Vellu did not want to comment on Dr Mahathir's decision because it was Umno's internal problem.

The Veterans

Tan Sri Mohamed Rahmat, Umno stalwart and former Information Minister: "I told myself, he (Mahathir) is going to quit the party. And then this afternoon, he quit. But to me, it's not unusual." - Malaysian Insider

The Oppositions :

Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat was the “happiest politician alive” after he was told that former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had decided to leave Umno.

"Apa sebab Dr. Mahathir mahu keluar dari UMNO. Apakah kerana masalah kepimpinan atau sebagainya. Kita pun tidak faham." Timbalan Pengerusi DAP, Dr. Tan Seng Giaw - Utusan


Just view at the S46 clans, they are in the cabinets or at least the Prime Minister's personal advisor. Obviously, they sang a common rhytm. These group used to be thrown out by Che Det.. therefore, their remarks are based on mere vengeance and invasively zipping Che Det.

Thank you Che Det, you unveiled the conspiracy. These are the people who are mainly responsible to the downfall of Barisan Nasional and in particular UMNO. We, the rakyat could read your lines clearly.. now that the culprit surfaced and an easy target for us.. thanks once again.

What has Anwar got to say about this? Che Det, you dah kacau his plan A B C D E until Z. Only a wise person would consider to hold an A1 and A2 or probably A# plans.

Its ok to loose the war.. but you will win the battle!!!!
