I have to admit that I was actually quite touched by this comment at my last posting,
Ya, saya pun sedih juga mengenangkan nasib orang Melayu yang berpecah.....sampai menitis airmata pun ada....begitu lah.
Obviously the commentator is a PH supporter and most likely a member of Pribumi Bersatu.
I have to say that I find his/her suggestion to be very acceptable.
Nonetheless, if we look closely at the wordings, it was of course directed to the Malays who were not within PH.
Those should be mostly in Umno and Pas.
It's actually quite a good idea for everyone in those two Malay-based party to jump ship to Pribumi Bersatu under the leadership of Dr Mahathir.
Pribumi Bersatu has 13 parliamentary seats, Umno has 54, and Pas has 18.
A bit weird for the bigger ones to jump into the small one, but never mind lah. Demi perpaduan Melayu, as they said it.
That way Pribumi Bersatu will have 85 parliamentary seats thus making it the dominant party in PH.
Actually, that's not bad, right?
However, if I'm not mistaken, such jumping of ships into PH has already been forbidden.
The reason was quite obvious, PKR and DAP don't want a Malay-based party like Pribumi Bersatu to dominate their PH coalition.
At the moment, in PH, the supposedly multi-racial PKR has 47 parliamentary seats, Chinese dominated DAP has 42, while Malay parties Pribumi Bersatu and Amanah only have 13 and 11 respectively. If you want to add PH ally, Sabah-based Warisan, it has 8.
The Malay-based parties look quite weak, right?
I wonder what would happen to them when Dr Mahathir relinquishes the PM post two years from now....that is if Anwar can wait that long.
I have this idea, but don't know whether can use or not.
How about all the Malays now already in Pakatan Harapan join Pribumi Bersatu first?
If Amanah and Warisan people shut down their party and join Pribumi Bersatu, that would make their combined parliament seats 32.
Then they can get maybe Azmin to bring all the Malays in PKR to join them. Let's say half of PKR MPs are Malays, that's at least another 24 more seats.....Anwar going to be so pissed if this happens :)
With that Pribumi Bersatu becomes the party with most parliamentary seats in PH,
Not bad what.
Maybe after that they can kick DAP and remnant of PKR out and replace them with Umno and Pas people, thus uniting the Malays. And they can bring along the Sarawak bumiputera parties too.
Can or not?
Eeeerrrr....actually that's quite scary, don't you think?
Especially with Pas in there with them.
Really can't stand those people.
Eh, just let the Malays unite as much as they could under Umno lah.
That is if they manage to clean up the party first.
Get rid of the garbage.
Really, Umno under the right people was not so bad.
Dr Mahathir was the best PM when he was with Umno, right?
