A coup in the making or could it be just another disgruntled Prime Minister-wannabe trying his luck for the last time?
Seems like a remake of the infamous ‘Sept 16’ saga, only that this time around the game appears with slight modifications. - Anwar Ibrahim doesn't appear in the picture.
The players are rather diverse in terms of ideologies, interests and political leanings BUT one thing remains the same, every Tom, Dick and Harry wants to be the Prime Minister.
Anyhow, on the surface this group of politicians seem focused towards another sinister challenge. Bluntly said, it’s a blend of treachery and dirty backdoor politics in the name of greater good and democracy for us Malaysians.
It’s the unabated lust for power.
Ok, lets get to the fact of the matter. There is talk, and its getting louder by the day, that a senior leader in BN has fallen prey into a political coup to presumably ‘deliver the final blow’ to his life-long political party.
Sucked into the ‘political supremacy’ grand plan, sources confirmed that he has started subtle moves to undermine the BN government.
“He has been actively engaging remnants of Anwar Ibrahim and others in BN with disagreements and community representatives with unresolved issues.
“The puppet-master is of course not him although he may think so. The movers are the very people who are trying to replace Anwar Ibrahim as the Opposition leader.
“Their runners, one with a comfortable GLC-paid day job, are operating from neighbouring countries,” a reliable source who claimed to have attended one of those “secret” meetings in Jakarta recently revealed.
There are many questions which need answers.
Who are these politicians trying to unseat Anwar and what are their reasons and motivation?
What is the need to rope in a BN politician (who to me is at the tail-end of his political career) to replace Anwar when the Opposition are not short of experienced leaders?
What is it that has prompted the seasoned BN politician to agree to ‘sleep with the enemy’?
Is it purely his personal lust for the Prime Minister’s seat, which some say has been his fantasy for decades?
Whoever the players are and whatever motivates them, we hope aspiring politicians and those trying to ‘make one last dash before retiring’ do not use the backdoor attempt to satisfy their lust for power.
Remember, in the olden days traitor are beheaded!
p/s Now we have two politicians who badly want to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia … by hook or crook that is.
