Thumping victories for Barisan despite supposedly crippling charges of corruption against the Prime Minister, ought to awaken the opposition and quell any arrogance stemming from unprecedented gains in the prior General Election.
One thing is quite clear, without a united front, PR or PH has no realistic chance of toppling the current BN government. If you cannot show unity in the opposition, it is clearly impossible for you to be united in a ruling government. Let’s face it, the opposition is not ready to form the federal government! So indeed the people are very discerning in casting their votes. Disunity in the opposition has culled any hopes of winning against BN.
The opposition parties must move on from Anwar. Hanging on to your slim hopes of installing Anwar as the PM in the event of a win is just a wasteful dream. His time is over, it is time to get a new figure that can transcend the politics of race and religion. It is time for the failed leadership of PKR, DAP and PAS to vacate their positions to enable newer potential future leaders to surface.
Mahathir, who once stood untouchable within the ruling elite is now reduced to a disgruntled frail has been. The hypocrisy is evident when it comes to Mahathir, who clearly once was associated with tyranny.It may be foolish to subscribe to Mahathir’s agenda.
When you cannot win during a time when the ruling government is weak, some seriousness must be injected into reorganization and the need for new strategies. A time when MCA and MIC should not have been given the opportunity to resurrect, a lifeline has been handed to them on a platter.
The opposition’s failure to unite has made BN look uncharacteristically an attractive option despite all the ills that plaque it. It is time to look deeper and really figure out how you can really help improve the country if chosen to lead, not just to topple BN. This sole agenda is beginning to appear stale.
