UMNO will support and be in a Unity Govt that is not led by PN (but UMNO might be looking at a BN-led Unity Govt with PN)



YOURSAY | ‘It will sleep with anybody but it wants the best deal.’

Quigonbond: I knew it. Umno will sleep with anybody but it wants the best deal. Why not go for PMship when Pakatan Harapan can only offer it the DPM’s post?

It is possible that Perikatan Nasional (PN) is desperate enough to keep Harapan from forming government that they are willing to surrender the PMship to Umno, a deal which also allows them to remain in government.

I would just say this. If BN joins PN, parties like MCA, MIC and GPS are traitors to the people they purport to protect and represent. It will not be forgotten.

Scarecrow: “The (Umno) supreme council unanimously supports and respects the decree of Yang di-Pertuan Agong for BN to support and take part in a unity government that is not led by PN, to ensure the establishment of a stable and prosperous government.”

Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan is a great storyteller playing the guessing game very well to give the Harapan supporting listeners some hope, as the story is about to end soon when in all possibilities PN would back a BN-led BN-PN government.

From the PN perspective, this is much better that a Harapan-led Harapan-BN government. Another possibility is a BN-led BN-Harapan government.

Harapan supporters must thank Ahmad Maslan for his storytelling skill – at least his story now has ruled out Muhyiddin Yassin and Abdul Hadi Awang as prime minister to the great relief of Harapan’s Chinese and Christian supporters.

But the story has so far not ruled out the possibility of Umno deputy president Mohamad Hasan from becoming PM because he is seen as very acceptable by all parties including Bersatu, PAS, GPS, PKR and DAP.

That’s why yesterday Mohamad Hasan was apparently summoned by His Majesty Agong to have a face-to-face meeting on a one-to-one basis.

So Harapan supporters should be prepared for another upset just like Japan created an upset by beating almighty Germany 2-1 at the World Cup.

Unluckeee: The wording of the Umno supreme council’s statement is ambiguous. It could mean BN leading a coalition with PN and GPS. Or it could mean BN supporting Harapan.

How do we know if PN has not offered former prime minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob to continue leading? (Just so that all of them keep Harapan from power?)

I have this niggly feeling that Harapan leader Anwar Ibrahim and all the right-thinking people will be disappointed again. I hope that I am wrong.
