Everyone seems to believe that Muhyiddin will meet the Agong on Monday and after that he would tender his resignation as PM.
But if true, what exactly he wants to say to the Agong?
I bet he would want to tell the king he wants to resign and suggest the name of his successor.
Well, I also dare to bet that he would suggest for his administration to stay because it needs to continue functioning as a government to handle especially the pandemic crisis.
And my money is definitely not on him telling the Agong to hand over Putrajaya to Pakatan.
No way he is going to tell the Agong " Tuanku bagi lah chan kat Anwar jadi PM".
He probably knows what it would be if Anwar becomes PM and Pakatan takes over.
"Ini semua salah Muhyiddin", "Ini semua salah Umno", "Ini semua salah Najib", "Racist, racist, racist" etc will go on for at least the next one year.
And some firemen may even get beaten up to death.
Yup, I'm quite sure Muhyiddin would not suggest such thing to the Agong if he really wants to resign on Monday.
I think he would instead suggest someone he's sure will be acceptable to his allies and especially Umno.
He needs a compromise for that. Someone acceptable to him, Pribumi Bersatu, Pas, MCA, MIC, the Sarawakians, other small allies and most importantly the Agong and Sultans as well as most of Umno.
The only one I could think of to fit that is Hishammuddin.
I know that the Agong will be okay with Hishammuddin, who is married to his cousin.

I'm also quite sure Sultan of Johor is okay with him too, and that means the other Rulers probably will go along with it.
As far as Umno is concerned, I believe only Zahid's faction may oppose Hishammuddin to be made PM.
Some others in the party may be squeamish at the prospect but will rather have that than having to endure Anwar and Pakatan in power again. At least Umno will be back heading the government.
Same like me.
At least there will be no disruption in the effort to fight the pandemic.
Najib should be okay. Hishammuddin is his cousin, after all.
Well, Anwar and the gang will scream and yell again if that happens, but by then the Perikatan coalition will once again command the majority in the Dewan Rakyat.
Their fault if that happens, actually.
They should just wait for Sept 7 and defeat Muhyiddin with the motion of confidence instead of forcing him to resign and sidestepping them like that.
On whether Hishammuddin will be a good PM is another thing.
It would be too long for me to put that in this post.
Next time, maybe.
