So, Anwar met the Agong.
Then he told a press conference that he has more than 120 MPs in his pocket, and the king is going to meet party leaders to discuss the matter.
However, the palace issued a statement saying that Anwar never showed the king any evidence of his majority in parliament. Nothing was mentioned about the king meeting party leaders.
It's beginning to look like another Anwar's drama.
Lots of noise and nothing much else.
I seriously think the guy should just quit the game.
Anyway, people are more concerned about Covid-19 than anything else at the moment.
Most, I think had just shrugged their shoulder over the comedy.
Really, looking at Anwar, I believe that all the old farts of Malaysian politics should just retire.
Some of the younger ones should too.
They are really a tiresome bunch.
Anyway, I still think Umno and its BN allies should go on their own for the next election.
No need to be with Anwar, Muhyiddin or even those Pas people.
They should fix their house, and offer Malaysians a good moderate multi-racial coalition like it used to do.
No need to have an overwhelmingly Malay dominated government as it may not be good for the country.
I believe a lot of Malays feel the same and if the non-Malays are smart they would agree too.
They would likely support such a good coalition. Just like they used to do back when BN did a lot of good for the country.
After all, they had tried something different with Pakatan Harapan and that didn't turn out very well.
That's why I hope, especially for the Chinese community to give MCA some of their support so that the idea of a multi-racial coalition, like BN used to be, could work.
If they still want to give their support solely to DAP, then they may as well endorse a Malay-dominated government without their representation.
Some of my Chinese friends said they don't mind that as they believe their community's wealth would be enough for them to not care as to who's in power. But that's just about ego and being silly, and I suspect they knew it to be so.
You need a government, which care for you. If it sees you as being hostile, things are going to get difficult.
It's the policies of the government, which allow things to be the way it is now, and if those change, things would not be the same again.
Simple example, they will close down the Chinese schools under the pretext of national unity.
I know for certain that some powerful figures in the current government have that in mind.
For them, it's a popular thing to do to further rally the Malays.
There's the MCA in the current government, but I don't know how long their leaders could stand up to the Malay ultra-right wingers there.
DAP may have a huge block in parliament given by mostly the Chinese community's almost total support for them , but they are in the opposition, so there's nothing they could do except making noises.
And please don't think about going to the streets, because this government is not the same as the Najib's administration which allowed such thing, abolished the ISA and many draconian laws of the past etc.
You go to the streets and protest now, they will clobber you. I'm quite sure of that. Nothing good will come out of that.
But that's up for the Chinese community to decide.
By the way, there's Covid-19 too to shut up protests these days.
Eh, I need to get up and go to work now. I'll try to write more regularly after this. Still trying to discipline myself to be like before.
