From Malaysiakini: Umno a falling durian

M Bakri Musa | Sep 25, 08 1:18pm When (it appears less of an “if” now) Anwar Ibrahim takes over the government, he will face the monumental twin problems of undoing the damage wrecked upon our institutions as well as containing the inevitable implosion of Umno.

Failure in either would effectively doom Anwar, Pakatan Rakyat, and Malaysia. The good news is that both challenges could be handled simultaneously through the same strategy, and with the subsequent success benefitting all.

The blight on our institutions and governmental machinery, as well as the urgent need to rectify it, is well appreciated. Less recognised is the need to manage Umno’s certain breakup.
