Rather than four shambolic offices in each division, they can regroup to one substantial office in each 222 divisions across the country. The menace of seat trading among Semenanjung parties ends. And even Amanah gets a pass to respectability through assimilation.
By forming a single Pakatan party.
Switching of political allegiances was instrumental after GE14 to resolve deadlocks and determine who would form the new state government, with the same tactic of defections also being used during and after the 2020 political crisis
The Muhyiddin government has delayed a widely anticipated vote of no confidence on his prime ministership when parliament reconvenes on 18 May. Is the new prime minister, whose legitimacy is being contested, feeling insecure? Or does he have the requisite numbers to support him — or is it both?
He was very friendly to me, as always. But I detected a change in his view. For him, if nothing was changed in Pakatan, then Bersatu would lose badly in the next general election. I gave him a counterview that Bersatu would be eaten up alive by UMNO and PAS in any form of Malay unity coalition, hence the best partner for Bersatu was DAP as there would be little competition in seats.
Muhyiddin was less ambitious at that time because he thought his party would still have to work with PAS whereas Dr Mahathir had discounted the Islamist party which he saw as nothing but Najib’s collaborator.
The insatiable Azmin was still pushing for the Muhyiddin-Azmin as PM-DPM but Muhyiddin was not involved.
