Malaysia's prime minister says he hopes to stay on for a second term despite aggressive efforts by his predecessor to oust him in what's become one of the worst political rows in the ruling party in years. "I will not run. I am here to stay," Abdullah said in an interview published Sunday in Mingguan Malaysia, the weekend edition of Malay-language Utusan Malaysia, a newspaper controlled by the ruling United Malays National Organization party. Abdullah said he has several long-term plans that would require more than a single term to see them through. It is the first time Abdullah has clearly stated that he intends to stand for office in the next general election, due in 2009. "The policies and the strategies are good and I plan to implement them successfully," he said in the interview. "I will work to see these projects are carried out, and they definitely require time longer than a single term," he said. "I have a long-term plan."
