THE Melaka state election speaks volumes of the sentiments of voters. For starters, the people are just sick and disgusted with the incoherent and inconsistencies of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, PKR, Parti Amanah Negara, PAS and even the DAP.
All these parties, since the last general election, have been compromising on their principles For example, Pakatan Harapan says no “political frogs” should be accepted but then, they did the opposite!
Pakatan was in power for 22 months and all they could do was waste precious time and effort bashing former premier Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, which now is backfiring.
Then they went on to sign a meaningless memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Perikatan Nasional, a step that shows they are equally feeling unstable and fast losing Malay support.
On the other end, DAP is fast becoming a liability to PKR and Amanah. The perception of DAP controlling PKR and Amanah is something too ingrained in the minds of Malay voters.
Thus, by deduction, if one wanted a stable government then there is little choice but to go back rolling to Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN). The rest have been tested and had failed disastrously.
Above all, do not underestimate the charisma Najib carries. He has led UMNO to victory in almost every by-election since 2018.
And Melaka is just the beginning of his work to make UMNO/BN great again. Some may hate me for saying the above and even disagree, but like it or not, the writing is on the wall.
