THE impact of economic hardship on political parties, including Pakatan Harapan (PH), can be a subject of debate among netizens. Economic conditions, government policies and various other factors can contribute to shifts in public opinion and political outcomes.
A pro-PH account on X is showing some disappointment towards the PH and government policies. This has sparked some interesting reactions.
Netizen @pemikirmsia is known for launching interesting debates on X and this time, wrote:
When I’m disappointed, I remain silent. When I’m angry, I speak. I’ve been quiet for awhile now.
It’s been a whirlwind 12 months and we have had to contend with multiple attempts at sabotage, 6 PRN, and inflation. We have succeeded more times than we have failed. Everyone in…

While some said PH has to buckle up or ship out and sit in the opposition after the next general elections, some are confident things will get better.
On the cost of living crisis, @garis3lintang said:

(I don’t know if you guys shop at Jaya Grocer. I’ve been going to the market every week with the other commoners, prices haven’t increased since six-seven months ago, except for rice. In fact, the mackerel that used to be 22/kg has now decreased to 17/kg. Eggs have maintained their high prices and haven’t dropped. There’s just enough stock.)
User @msbdaud supports the views that the marketing choices are in our hands, instead.
Betul sgt2. Yg duk meratib brg mahal tu depa duk beli kat Hypermarket Kayangan dan kedai2 runcit. Cthnya ayam..kat supermarket 8.90, kedai runcit 9.80-10.50 sekilo. Telur 12.50 jadi 15.00 kt kedai runcit. Pilihan di tgn kita, jgn duk asyik salahkan org dh cuba nak buat yg terbaik

(That’s right. Those who are complaining that things are expensive are buying their goods at some expensive supermarkets. For example chicken, at the supermarket 8.90, grocery store 9.80-10.50/kg. Eggs 12.50 so 15.00 at the grocery store. The choice is ours, don’t be busy blaming people for trying to do the be.)
Some expressed their frustrations at how things are going in the country.
If this trend continues, back to Opposition bench after next GE
I am tired with all the excuses given. They have been using the “This is a UG , not PH govt” card to renege on their electoral promise

As signs of change become increasingly evident, questions arise about the stability of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s government.
Will it endure and adapt, as some suggest, or is it on the brink of losing support and stepping down?
Alternatively, is this debate rooted in the perceived shortcomings of the government, or are we simply witnessing a period of adjustment following the transition to a unity government in Malaysia? – Oct 28, 2023
