Muhyiddin: PM should step down before 2010 - TheStar
SINGAPORE: Umno vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi should rethink his transition plan to step down by 2010 as the timeframe was too long.
The transition plan revealed by Abdullah two months ago, he claimed, had “sunk away” and people were not thinking about it any more.
“The year 2010 is too (far away),” he told a news conference on the sidelines of the Forbes Global CEO Conference here on Wednesday.

UMNO PRESIDENT SACKS HIMSELF.
Kuala Lumpur, Wednesday (10 Sept, 2008) :- Datuk Seri Abdullah Bin Ahmad Badawi today took an unprecedented step in the 51 year history of the nation by SACKING himself as President of Umno.
The much cherished move also automatically disqualifies him as the Prime Minister of Malaysia.
Announcing his decision to quit as Umno president and Prime Minister after a stormy Umno supreme council meeting here, Abdullah said he finally accepted the fact that the people have rejected his leadership.
He also announced the sacking of Bukit Bendera Umno head Datuk Ahmad Ismail from all party positions and for the controversial politician to be detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) until the grassroots situation in Pulau Pening improves.
Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Bin Tun Abdul Razak is now acting Prime Minister while Vice-president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Bin Yassin is acting deputy Prime Minister.
The two senior party leaders would hold the respective positions until the Umno annual general assembly in December.
Sources told CNN, BBC, AlJazeera and the rest of the world that several Umno leaders, close relatives and businessmen linked to Abdullah were been detained at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport while trying to leave the country before Abdullah officially hands over his duties to Najib at Istana Negara on Friday.
Some of them have been quarantined at the KLIA police lock-up while a few other dangerous ones have been sent to the Kamunting Detention Centre in Perak.
The famous KJ, another source from the Immigration Department said, has been detained while trying to cross the tiny Sungai Golok, at the Malaysia/Thailand border in Kelantan.
