Annuar Zaini, Tajol, Kali And Zam

Tajol Rosli will be replaced by Annuar Zaini as the Menteri Besar of Perak. Zainuddin Maidin’s post as Information Minister will be given to Kalimullah Hassan.

Annuar, currently chairman of Bernama, is expected to contest in one of the state seats in Perak. Kalimullah, the vice chairman of NST, is said to be appointed as a senator before filling in the cabinet post.

Both Annuar and Kalimullah are two prominent members in the inner circle of Abdullah Badawi. Kalimullah, however is said to have better link with Abdullah’s “4th Floor Boys” and son-in-law Khairy Jamaluddin.

Sources said that Annuar had already told several people of the move by Abdullah to appoint him as the next MB of Perak. Kalimullah too had been bragging about him replacing Zam as the boss in Angkasapuri.

With the 12th General Elections just around the corner, it is difficult to dismiss the above speculations as mere rumours. We have to wait and see.

But again, will Abdullah be able to reward his two loyalists with the above posts if BN fares very badly in the coming GE?
