Abdullah, Najib swap portfolios

Our PM wants full control of our army? Just in case? Hopefully Najib can push our economy up again :).

PUTRAJAYA: Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi announced he would be handing over the Finance Ministry portfolio to his deputy. In a direct swap, Abdullah would take over the Defence Ministry from Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

The Prime Minister announced this at a press conference Wednesday.

The swap of duties is to take effect immediately.

The move is part of the agreed transition plan which both Abdullah and Najib reaffirmed on Wednesday.

In July, Abdullah and Najib agreed to the transition plan for the Prime Minister to hand over power to him in 2010. The plan was endorsed by the party supreme council later.

Would the swapping make any difference at all? I'm just tired of all this political play. Maybe I'm just a skeptic.
