Breaking News....Najib cancels trip to New York.

Deputy Prime Minister Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Tun Razak, who is supposed to leave for New York tonight, has made a last minute decision to cancel his trip.

Political observers say that Najib's decision is prompted by the advice given by several Supreme Council members that he should not leave the country as the Umno divisional meetings draw close.

Umno divisional meetings will kick off on Oct 9. Najib is expected to receive overwhelming nominations for the post of party President.

The cancellation of Najib's New York trip comes as Umno President Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has begun his nationwide trip to drum up sopport for him to defend his party presidency. He needs a minimum of 58 nominations to be eligible.

Abdullah has appointed several Umno "strongmen" to various important positions in a desperate attempt to gain their support. They include Perlis State Umno liaison Committee Chief Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim who was made Special Adviser to the Prime Minister on the Northern Corridor Economic Region.

More appointments are expected.

Najib's statement to the Press later today is expected to say that his new position as Finance Minister requires him to remain in the country as this moment.

good move.
no need to go abroad for the un general assembly when we have more pressing matters to attend to locally.
besides, it's been a long time since malaysia has really made any impact at the international level with regards to its position on global issues. and i seriously doubt we can make any contribution now.

With all this talk in the internet of Dollah making a deal with anwar behind Najib's back , sure Najib is worried lah. Dollah waiting for Najib to go overseas and then he turn over the PM to Anwar. Najib smell a rat and he is not leaving Dollah's sight. That is why Anwar is asking for a bit more time.
