In a move that surprised absolutely no one, Muhyiddin has announced that BERSATU will now officially join Muafakat Nasional.
The move confirmed what everyone already knew.
The Prime Minister was on borrowed time. For political survival he would need to rely on UMNO + PAS to realize his insatiable thirst to be the Prime Minister.
With UMNO’s announcement that it will not join Perikatan Nasional but focus on Muafakat Nasional, it was a game of Russian Roulette. It was also clear who called the shots.
In a time when Malaysia is desperate for strong leadership, the Prime Minister has let us down again and succumbed to the powerful political machine that is UMNO.
With all this talk of Muafakat Nasional or Perikatan Nasional, it is clear that the formula is the same.
UMNO will always be the main player and have the final say in how things goes down. With PAS by its side, UMNO can now care less about the minorities especially the Dayaks, Chinese and Indians.
GPS can continue to live in denial and say that them opting to back Bersatu + UMNO + PAS is for the political stability of this country. The fact is the political stability that GPS is seeking is the continued existence and survival of Barisan Nasional.
