Mukhriz’s political future getting bleaker by the day

Pakatan Harapan does not regard Mukhriz highly. In fact, they do not even think they can use him against Najib like what they are doing with Mahathir. Compared to Nurul Izzah Anwar, Mukhriz rates even lower and even then Nurul is not much to start off with. On a list of the top ten most likely to become Pakatan Harapan’s Prime Minister, Mukhriz is not even on the list.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

Raja Petra Kamarudin

The 29th of February 2016. The day that Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad resigned from Umno out of protest regarding his son Mukhriz’s removal as the Menteri Besar of Kedah on 3rd February 2016. That 29th of February 2016 was the beginning of the end for Mahathir’s political dynasty, and the chance for Mukhriz to become the Prime Minister plummeted to zero.

When Mahathir resigned from Umno on 29th February 2016 it was supposed to have been a temporary move like back in 2008, the last time he resigned from Umno. Mahathir thought that, just like when he resigned in 2008, they would pujuk him to return to Umno. When that did not happen as Mahathir had hoped, he had no choice but to set up his own party and take over as the ‘Top Dog’ of Pakatan Harapan.

Mahathir thought he and Mukhriz would be considered god-sent to the opposition. They would be so glad he and Mukhriz joined their ranks that they would immediately anoint Mukhriz as Pakatan Harapan’s Prime Minister-in-waiting. What Mahathir had not expected is that Pakatan Harapan just wanted to use him to go against Najib, as what DAP’s Superman Hew revealed.

Pakatan Harapan does not regard Mukhriz highly. In fact, they do not even think they can use him against Najib like what they are doing with Mahathir. Compared to Nurul Izzah Anwar, Mukhriz rates even lower and even then Nurul is not much to start off with. On a list of the top ten most likely to become Pakatan Harapan’s Prime Minister, Mukhriz is not even on the list.

This is what Pakatan Harapan really thinks of Mahathir and his sons, and making Mukhriz Prime Minister is not in the plan

Then there is the problem of whether Mukhriz can win his seat or whether he will need to migrate and contest in a Chinese majority seat. DAP will need to hadiah Mukrhiz one of their seats and tell the Chinese voters to vote for him if he is going to win. What kind of Prime Minister is he going to make if he cannot even win the general election?

Mahathir knows Pakatan Harapan has no plans to make Mukhriz the Prime Minister. And for sure they do not plan to make Mahathir the Prime Minister as well. At his age, if Pakatan Harapan makes Mahathir the Prime Minister, Malaysia will become the laughing stock of the entire world. Even Mahathir’s own party, PPBM, will see it as a joke.
