Dr Mahathir is the PM but his Pribumi only have 12 seats.
If Pribumi combines with Warisan they would have 20 seats.
If PKR, DAP and Amanah combined, they would have 101 seats.
Short of 11 to form a simple majority without Pribumi and Warisan.
If Warisan goes with them, they would have 109 seats, short of three seats to get a simple majority without Dr Mahathir's Pribumi.
Maybe they could get those three extra seats or more from somewhere.
This will be quite interesting when Anwar gets out of jail.
The guy may just pull this one up.
Hey, he may not want to wait for Dr Mahathir to step down.
He had done that a long time ago and suffered for it.
Anwar may also not like someone like Azmin to cut queu.
Then someone commented this;
Well, that really doesn't look good for Pribumi at all.
With that kind of strength in Parliament, I doubt PKR, DAP and Amanah, being the original members of PH will sit still and let Dr Mahathir does as he pleases forever.
Yup, especially so once Anwar gets out of jail.
Anyway, lets have a look at the situation at the state assemblies too and see how Pribumi stands,
Perlis - BN 10 / PKR 3 / Pas 2
There is actually no Pribumi state assemblyman in Perlis. But Shahidan Kassim was said to get everyone to jump to Pribumi.
Penang - DAP 14, PKR 14, Pribumi 2, Amanah 2 / BN2 Pas 1
It's DAP and PKR winning the bulk shares of the state seat but I believe DAP will still be the dominant one. Pribumi only has 2 seats.
Kedah - Peribumi - PKR 8, Pribumi 5, Amanah 3 DAP 2 / Pas 15 / BN 2
Mukhriz is the Menteri Besar but his Pribumi only has 5 seats as compared to PKR's 8. Surely the top PKR guy may get itchy. By the way, Pas on its own has 15 seats.
Perak - DAP 18, Amanah 6, PKR 4, Pribumi 1 / BN 27 / Pas 3
Perak also has a Pribumi MB in Ahmad Faizal Azumu but the party only has his single seat. The king in Perak PH is DAP which has 18 seats. Should be noted that BN has 27 state seats in Perak.
Selangor - PKR 28 DAP 14 Amanah 5 Pribumi 4 / BN 4 / Pas 1
Selangor MB is Azmin and PKR deserve to have their man as MB becaause they won 28 seats with DAP being second with 14 seats. Pribumi only have 4 seats in the state.
Negeri Sembilan - DAP 11, PKR 7, Amanah 2 / BN 16
The menteri Besar is Aminuddin Harun of PKR which won 7 seats. PH however is dominated by 11 DAP assemblyman. Pribumi doesn't have a single seat. BN on the other hand has 16 seats.
Malacca - DAP 8, PKR 3, Pribumi 2, Amanah 2 / BN 13
Adly Zahari of Amanah is the new CM of Malacca but his party only has 2 seats. Pribumi also only has 2 seats. DAP is the king of PH in Malacca with 8 seats. BN however has 13 seats.
Johor- DAP 14, Amanah 9, Pribumi 8, PKR 5 / Pas 1 / BN 19
The palace-backed Osman Sapian of Pribumi is the Johor MB but his party only has 8 seats as compared to DAP's 14. BN has 19 seats on its own, double than that of Pribumi or Amanah's 9 and PKR's 5 or Pas' one.
Pahang - BN - BN 25, Pas 8 / DAP 7, PKR 2,
The ever faithful Adnan Yaakob is still MB, holding the fort for BN in the state with 25 seats. There's no Pribumi in Pahang.
Terengganu - Pas - Pas 22, BN 10.
Dr Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar of Pas is Terengganu MB. It's a clean cut Pas win here. No Pribumi in Terengganu.
Kelantan - Pas - Pas 37, BN 8
Ahmad Yaakob of Pas continues as MB. It's also straight forward here. No Pribumi in Kelantan.
Sarawak - BN - None.
Definitely no Pribumi in Sarawak.
Sabah - Warisan 21, DAP 6, PKR 2, Sabah Star 2, BN 29.
No Pribumi in Sabah either. Shafie's Warisan is likey doing it alone there. I don't see him wanting to share the spoils of war in Sabah with Pribumi.
Okay looking at the above, it's clear that Dr Mahathir's Pribumi Bersatu doesn't have much clout even in the State assemblies, even where its men are menteri besar such as in Kedah, Perak and Johor.
Pribumi doesn't even have any state seat in Perlis, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Terengganu, Kelantan, Sarawak and Sabah.
In Perak, the Pribumi Menteri Besar is definitely going to be a puppet because he is the single representative from his party in the assembly. No backing what so ever.
DAP, in contrast, controls PH in Penang, Perak, Negeri Sembilan, Malacca, and Johor.
Yup, that's really the scenario.
For Pribumi people, especially, please double check the situation, okay. I might be lying about all this.
Well, if I'm not lying, then this is what the Melayu said
Menang sorak kampung tergadai.
But hey, this is the new Malaysia.
No more Malays, Chinese, Indians dan lain-lain,
We are all Malaysians.
As Guan Eng and his friends said so lah, okay.
|Guan Eng and new Penang CM Chow. Cute, right.|
