Abdullah Tables Report Card At Umno Assembly

When you need to inform to the "rakyat" of your achievement, then seriously I dont think there is much achievements at all.

Abdullah Tables Report Card At Umno Assembly

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 15 (Bernama) -- The Umno general assembly began Wednesday with its president Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi tabling what appeared to be his "report card" highlighting achievements and challenges three years into his leadership of the country.

The report card contained 12 "subjects" he had taken since Oct 31, 2003 after taking over the helm of the country from his predecessor Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

In his 90-minute presidential address, Abdullah detailed his aspirations as well as challenges and achievements for every subject.

The report card will also show whether the 12 subjects are on the right track.

"The report card clears the air of the much-awaited explanation on the progress of his policies and programmes introduced since leading the country," said a political observer.

The wide-ranging subjects covered national unity, the economy, political leadership, democracy, human capital, corruption, rule of law, youth and women, private and public sectors roles in nation building, and international affairs.

Abdullah said the 12 pillars were the guide the party used when Barisan Nasional (BN) drafted its election manifesto and were also the centrepiece of the past three budgets as well as the National Mission and the Ninth Malaysia Plan.

He also shared with the 2,563 delegates the view that different leaders have different approaches and styles in administering and managing a country in a different era.

The prime minister said the BN's outstanding success in the 2004 general election should be deemed as the people's endorsement of the 12 pillars to form the basis to bring success to the nation. "I believed the `rakyat' (people) will take the report card into consideration for the next general election," said the observer.
