My country's future seem to be as vague as it can be. Finally the incompetent PM Abdullah will be stepping down next week. But the upcoming PM Najib Razak who failed to do his job as Minister of Defence and his connection with Altantuyaa's case doesnt make him a promising leader.

Mahathir attended UMNO assembly yesterday and planned to rejoin UMNO. But just 2 days ago he said that he is not attending the meetings because he is disgusted by UMNO's "politik rasuah" (political corruption). He even said that attending those meetings would pollutes his image, "Saya rasa diri saya akan tercemar jika saya berada dalam majlis yang disertai oleh orang yang mendukung amalan rasuah."
And it was Mahathir who tampered with Malaysia's judiciary and hence responsible for paralying it to its current state.
The country's anti-corruption agencies MACC has no real power. They are under UMNO's discretion.
In the past, there are attempts being made to the royalty to intervene and right the political situation in the country. But if we want to depend on the country's sultans and king to lead the country, we are dreaming big. They are useless. One reason is that Malaysia is not a monarchy, it's a democracy. Even though there are role for the royalty in the Constitution, yet these royalties are puppets strang by UMNO.
This is most obvious when Perak was being robbed from its people by UMNO. The royalty supported UMNO even though it is not constitutional.
During this tragic, where was Raja Nazrin Shah? The Crown Prince of Perak which was once favoured by Malaysians? Why was he, a phD in political science from Harvard, has nothing to say against this power grab? What is he doing with his phD?
Of course the opposition parties cannot speak out against the royalty so that UMNO don't get to charge them disrespecting the Malay royals, which the UMNO nonetheless did several times.
And when Karpal Singh questioned the royalty, he was immediately being charged. But on the other hand, Altantuyaa's case is still not settled after 2 years!
