Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi, will he get the Vote of Confidence (originally published on 23rd June 2008)

Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi could face a vote of no confidence in parliament on Monday. This is the current news on BBC by Robin Brant as on 23rd June 2008 04.32 AM GMT.

Ganesha looks at what is in store for Malaysia, will it get a new government, will the current government resign or be ousted of power? Will Abdullah Badawi sail through?

The analysis is based on Indian Vedic Chart.

An astrological insight into the current event


As per Malaysia’s chart, Ganesha observes that Mangal (Mars) becomes the lord of the seventh house of opposition and becomes the lord of the twelfth house of hidden enemies. It was debilitated till 21st June 2008 Saturday. It was also in conjcuntion (though separating) with Ketu a separative planet. This may have instigated the opposition as well as his own party leaders to come into the open and plan to demand a no confidence motion to oust his government.

Shani is the lord of the tenth house of political stability and the seat of power, the current government and its leader. Transiting Mangal and Ketu were aspecting natal Shani till 21st June, and now only Ketu aspects natal Shani. This was another astrological reason, as Shani (the government) was under pressure of malefic and evil planets, leading it to a position of being challenged.

As per Abdullah’s Sun Chart, Mars is the lord of his sixth house of open enemies, all his oppositors are his open enemies, and it was also debilitated and in conjcuntion with Ketu, till 21st June 2008. This played a critical part in the happening of the current crisis.

Now What?

Ganesha observes that Shani is the lord of the tenth house of Malaysia’s chart. The tenth house and its lord signify the current leader and the party in power at the center. The position of Shani, in its current transit is so very interesting. It is interesting because it is weak by being placed in enemy sign and is weak as it is opposite to its own house. Thus this is another reason that the enemies of the current leader and government could gain strength to challenge. But the interesting factor is that when malefic planets are in opposition to any house or its own house too, they actually fortify that house and provide good results.

So the weak and the strong characteristics of transiting Shani through the fourth house of Malaysia’s chart are, to let the government face instability and then to recoup it. The instability was caused by the Mangal Ketu conjunction. Till here its all now ok and clear, but the perennial question is still open, What next?

Well Mars (Mangal) has now entered the fourth house of Malaysia’s chart and is slowly moving towards conjunction with transiting Shani.

This makes a good position for Abdullah and the current government as the opposition will not be able to hold unity and some one will rather have a private deal with current government and support it.

This, but does not mean the Abdullah Government is out of danger. If they are no alert, then when transiting Sun, the significator of power and authority will come in conjcuntion with transiting Ketu from, 17th July 2008 to 16th August 2008, he may again have some troubles.

As per Abudullah’s chart, Sun is the lord of his tenth house of power and authority as per his Sun chart and Sun as such is the significator of power and authority. This Sun, in conjcuntion with transiting Ketu between 17th July and 16th August may cause him a lot of troubles and he may have to lose his position.


Ganesha summarily finds that the current Government as a whole along with its current PM, Abdullah Badawi, may survive initially, at lest for one more month, while Abdullah, may have to lose power between 17th July 2008 to 16th August 2008, if he is not careful. There are still some said loyalists in his party who may stab him in the back, and pull back their support to him, in this period. In a nutshell, the current government may be in place, but Abdullah probably may be ousted by 16th August 2008.

Wishing Abdullah all the luck to stay in place.
