"Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak wasted no time unveiling his manifesto for the Umno presidency, denouncing recent allegations made against him and vowing to defend till the last drop of his blood the supremacy of the Malay race." Source: http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/91588
Well Najib may win the UMNO election but he will lose the next Gen. Election. UMNO is no longer a strong party in Malaysia. It is struggling to revive.
The reason for its decline was the switch in Malay votes. In the past, Malay is UMNO and UMNO is Malay. Now Malays are opting for change. They wanted democracy and not continual spoon-feeding.
How would Najib defend UMNO and BN? By looking at his manifesto, he would adopt more ISA arrests to silent dissidents. He will ban all public rallies in the next Gen. Election. But Najib forgot that no voice could be silent even if more would be arrested. Many other will rise up to speak. Now people are using cyber tools. A mouse will link them worldwide.
Najib also forgot that the other component parties of BN are checking on UMNO. If Najib were to play with race-card again, they will forsake BN.
