Umno last night said it will join a unity government as long as it's not led by PN.
I read it as
1. BN will join PH and probably get the DPM and tonnes of minister posts.
2. BN will join PN and get the PM and tonnes of minister posts.
It all now depends on whether PN is willing to give BN what it wants.
PH has already indicated that it will give BN what it wants.
In Perak and Pahang, PH gave BN all kind of stuff without BN even asking anything.
Because PH, in particular DAP is so scared of the possible rise of a truly Malay Islamist government if BN joins PN.
As for Anwar, he just wants to be PM and willing to give anything for it.
So, now the ball is in PN's court.
It all depends on whether PN is willing to counter offer what PH is offering BN.
I think the PN's decision lies with Pas, which is now the dominant party in PN.
Muhyiddin will have to listen to Hadi.
Just now, I saw a story of Hadi indicating that he is still confident of getting what Pas wanted that is a truly Malay Islamist government.
Ya, Agong wanted a more racially diverse unity government, but the Constitution only talk about the numbers.
GPS, which stated that it will follow BN will make up the number if PN agrees to give in to BN.
For them it would be the same set-up as before the GE15.
Sarawak will always be insulated from the political nonsense in the peninsular, after all.
Sarawakians' perceived fear of Pas is actually about the same level as their loathing of DAP.
For many of them, Pas is an extremist Islamist party while DAP is an extremist Chinese chauvinistic party.
Nonetheless, GPS knows that BN will make sure to help them shield Sarawak from those two.
Again, all this will depend on whether PN can swallow its pride and let BN with its just 30 seats in parliament to lead them.
Personally, I still stand on wanting BN as the opposition and fix its house.
The rakyat had voted them to be the opposition and that's where they should be.
PH or PN can be the government for all I care.
For me, both are more or less the same - useless.
