Well, the people had spoken....or rather the Malays had spoken.
They decided to change Umno with Pas.
Yup, Pas is the Malays' dominant party now and they will control the coming new government.
Sorry Pakatan people, you all still lose and this time the effect will be worse.
It's almost certain that the new government will have a Pribumi Bersatu PM but controlled by Pas.
It's going to be a coalition of PN, BN, GPS and GRS, which would have a comfortable majority of 131 seats in parliament.
How did this happen?
Pakatan's attack on Umno, especially about Zahid becoming PM if BN wins really works....for Pas.
Instead of switching to Pakatan, the Malays switched to Perikatan.
Pas now has 44 seats, Pribumi Bersatu 28 and Umno 26.
DAP has 40 seats while PKR has 31 seats, which are both smaller than Pas'. Mat Sabu's Amanah has 8 seats.
And no one wants to partner Pakatan....at least not for now. Nobody else wants to go back to 2018.
Those are all bullshit....mine too.
Well, at least mine was my one person's opinion, unlike those made by multi-million ringgit units such as Invoke, Merdeka Centre etc.
What would I know, as this is the first time I didn't really go on the ground during a general election since 1999. I really didn't have the budget to do that.
As I previously wrote, my biggest concern was the coming global recession and I was hoping for Malaysians to decisively vote for a strong and stable government to handle it.
They didn't exactly do that but still the most likely coalition which I mentioned above would have 131 seats which is stable enough.
Whether it has the ability to handle the impending crisis would be a different matter.
Nonetheless, Malaysians, you all have made your decision and better stick to it.
Like it or not, we have to support the coming government and pray that it has what needed for us to weather the storm.
As for Pakatan people who wished an alliance with BN for a more moderate government, sorry guys, you all said too much bad things about them being corrupted and evil.
Umno in particular will never do that.
That party will change its leaders and try to pick up the pieces, hopefully for the better.
So sorry that the good ones like KJ, Shahril Hamdan and Zafrul were casualties of GE15.
Personally, I don't think Umno is dead but it would never be the same again as the Malays moved more and more towards conservatism.
