New Era Of Coalition Politics
Malaysia has a hung Parliament as a result of the voting in the 15th general election yesterday.
Malaysia is in the new era of coalition politics and I advocate a coalition government of Pakatan Harapan (82 MPs), Perikatan Nasional (73 MPs) and Borneo Bloc (35 MPs) under Anwar Ibrahim as prime minister to form a coalition with the specific programme to reverse Malaysia’s decline to make Malaysia a great world-class nation and to fight corruption.
This “Make Malaysia great again” coalition will have 190 MPs, which is more than two-thirds of the 222 parliamentary seats that can amend the Malaysian constitution to restore to Sarawak and Sabah their rights according to the Malaysia Agreement 1963.
BN-Umno has suffered the worst defeat in its history, and Ahmad Zahid Hamidi should resign as the coalition’s president and return to the original Umno nation-building principles as advocated by the first four Umno presidents and nation’s founding fathers like Onn Jaafar, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Razak Hussein, Hussein Onn, Tan Cheng Lock, Tan Siew Sin, Dr Lim Chong Eu and VT Sambanthan.
ADSI had advised Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Tengku Razaleigh to play advisory roles and not to be candidates. If they had listened, they would have avoided the ignominy yesterday.
I started my political journey 57 years ago in the days of Umno hegemony when a crack became a national crisis.
The 15th general election result yesterday may appear to be a disaster for Malaysia, but it should be seen as a catalyst for the nation to become a normal, world-class great country again. - Mkini
