DAP leaders seem to have a “fatal attraction ” towards former prime minister Najib Razak. Almost every day, they have kept themselves busy with his affairs that makes it look like the party was solely dedicated for the purpose of berating him.
Well, there seem to be a fear that Najib may make a comeback as the prime minister if the law permits.
Let’s face the reality.
When Najib was the prime minister, there was more harmony among the different races. The economy was not too bad and the wellbeing of the rakyat was also relatively well taken cared of.
Unfortunately, all the prime ministers that came after the last general election just had no dedication and expertise in uniting the people.
Today, race divide has worsened and not much to shout about the economy. The political climate is in turmoil and extremely worrying due to the uncertainty and instability of the Government.
On the hand the Opposition coalition, Pakatan Harapan has no concrete plans to offer to the suffering ordinary citizen.
They are fixated to the 1MDB issue so much that everything else is secondary.
Let the legal process continue as it should in relation to the 1MDB fiasco, but until all is not exhausted, Najib, as any other ordinary citizen has the right to contest in any future elections.
And if the majority of the people want him back as the prime minister and at that point of time the law allows so, then no one can stop him. Pakatan blew its chance.
In any case, Malaysia desperately needs a stable and directed Government, not the one that houses “frogs” and dependent on a meaningless and brittle memorandum of understanding (MOU).
Let us be reminded that DAP and PKR leaders were willing to embrace Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad unashamedly before the 14th General Election.
And this is the very man that for decades they had hated, denounced and accused of many wrong doings in the past. Yet magically, all was forgiven and forgotten the moment a common enemy in Najib was seen.
So, what is the big deal if the majority of the voters decide that it is okay to give Najib another chance, provided it conforms to the requirements of the Federal Constitution.
DAP and PKR should instead go back to the drawing board and not sound like some sore losers. They were given a chance by Malaysians but flopped miserably and yet have not learned any lesson. – Nov 27, 2021.
