Last night New Mandala received a huge surge in traffic from Malaysia. The reason, simply, is that Malaysia’s premier blog, Malaysia Today, sent thousands upon thousands of its readers in our direction. They all stopped by to digest Greg Lopez’s recent post on the uncertain future of Prime Minister Najib.

Greg’s continued success as New Mandala Editor – Malaysia should give encouragement to anyone considering applying for New Mandala‘s other recently advertised editorships. These roles offer tremendous potential to shape debate and make major contributions. We look forward to receiving your expressions of interest. To reiterate, applications close on 5 March 2010.
