From stillborn Perikatan Nasional to GE15 call - How BN, PAS U-turned in three days

The context had rapidly changed in just three days. Last Sunday, Putrajaya appeared within grasp for BN and PAS.

interview all MPs, it was widely assumed they will renominate him as prime minister as all political parties with MPs in the Dewan Rakyat had public voiced support for Mahathir. While Mahathir met with the party leaders to gauge them on reforming the government, the party leaders too could gauge where Mahathir stood - It was a contest between those trying to revive the Pakatan Harapan government and proponents of Perikatan Nasional government, albeit with some modifications. Mahathir's envisioned coalition upsets Umno And for Umno, the Malay nationalist party did not appear to like where things were heading. Hours after Umno president Ahmad Zahid Hamidi met with Mahathir at the prime minister, Umno secretary-general Annuar Musa was sending angry posts on Twitter about the need to act as a party and not as individuals. Mahathir has continued to remain silent but Annuar gave a glimpse of what the interim prime minister was planning at the press conference this evening. Mahathir was planning a"unity government" but only wanted selected individuals. He wouldn't' accept Umno wholesale in the new government. He had previously said he won't work with"kleptocrats" in Umno. "Our parties believe that the formation of a government must be along party lines and not individuals. "This unity government to be formed by the future prime minister chooses from individuals to form a cabinet which goes against the position of our parties," Annuar said, warning that this could tear the parties apart. The fact that a broad-ranging unity government that will also include the DAP was also unpalatable to both BN and PAS. Finding the"Perikatan Nasional" sold to them by Azmin and other operatives to be vastly different from the new coalition that Mahathir is personally envisioning, both BN and PAS decided to revoke their support for Mahathir. "The support (for Mahathir) which we presented to the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong last Sunday - We are retracting it," he declared. 'Perikatan Nasional dead on arrival' Without BN and PAS' support, Perikatan Nasional was dead even before it was created. With the dramatic U-turn, BN and PAS' messaging have also changed. From trying to form a new government without going through elections, both now want fresh elections in the name of"the people". "We are in a situation where the mandate should be returned to the people and we call for Parliament to be dissolved - Let the people decide," Annuar (below ) said. GPS and Warisan, which were in a similar position with BN and PAS, have thus far not changed their position about supporting Mahathir. With Harapan - comprising PKR, DAP and Amanah - also behind Mahathir, he will now need to mediate between the two groupings for his new coalition. It also remains to be seen how he will deal with the PKR defectors, who until yesterday, was still at his home in Sungai Besi to lobby him. Finally, he will need to deal with his own Bersatu house, or at least those who have misbehaved in the political saga. Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin today visited Mahathir at the Prime Minister's Office to appeal that he does not resign as the party chairperson. However, Mahathir's special media adviser A Kadir Jasin had said this was not a priority for him right now and will likely only be addressed after he completes negotiations with the other parties. If Mahathir succeeds, the new coalition will likely resemble the previous Pakatan Harapan with some Read more:

BN clearly state in the early tht they will support Tun utk pensejajaran JIKA tiada DAP..malang nya desas desus mengatakan ada few DAP akan join dlm pentdbiran yg baru..ofcoz BN x agreed and back to their old position.. Holding to GE will let the crooks hv chance to manipulate the votes especially frm village. Those who orchestrated this episode shd be sacked becoz they failed the people of Msia for giving them mandate to serve. These bunch of betrayers behaved as if they r d god of tis country

They are desperate to hold power right now. Like RIGHT NOW. Fast. They're trying to escape the cases they have on them. They are confident they'll win in a fresh election. sekali lagi, malaysian melatah dengan article tanpa nama penulis And how some politicians went from hero to zero Because everyone is in TUN’s hand .

They are Islamofascist terrorists. They will not agree to anything. That's why the Agong is wasting his time.
