The latest political developments in Perak seem to favour the state Barisan Nasional – chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
BN and PR now hold 28 state seats each but the overnight existence of THREE independent state assemblyman/woman who SUPPORT the NAJIB-led Barisan Nasional has tilted the scale.
In fact PR only has 27 legitimate votes in the 59-seat state assembly since one of its representatives is the assembly Speaker who has no voting rights.
So, it’s effectively 28 plus 3, against 27.
The rest of the process will unfold on its own and the incoming Prime Minister seems to have got hold of the situation on the ground in Perak just barely FOUR DAYS after assuming the state BN leadership.
BUT what matters most for the BN now is to keep Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, his Son-In-Law and their goons OUT OF THE PICTURE.
If BN could keep these ‘liabilities’ out of Perak and continue to serve the people honestly, with a higher level of commitment, then it could indeed be a breath of fresh air for everyone.
The people clearly rejected Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s leadership on March 8 and now some seem to be returning to BN’s fold with the HOPE that Najib could put this beloved nation back on track towards attaining the now elusive Vision 2020.
Pak Lah! Please just STAY OUT, we have had enough of you.
