“They tried desperately to get the numbers but failed and now realise that a general election will favour a Third Force, i.e. Mahathir”

Pakatan Harapan’s recent claim that a general election is not needed currently as the results of the 14th general election are valid until 2023 means the coalition is seeking to press the ‘reset’ button.
“What is needed is the return of the mandate to the appropriate parties, immediately,” said PH in a statement signed by PKR secretary-general Datuk Seri Saifuddin Nasution, Amanah secretary-general Datuk Hatta Ramli, and DAP organising secretary Anthony Loke Siew Fook.
If this is the case, Pakatan Harapan should also demand that Datuk Seri Azmin Ali rejoins PKR as Deputy President and PPBM returns to Pakatan Harapan lock, stock and barrel.
Everything should be reset to the hour before PPBM announced its departure from Pakatan Harapan, meaning, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad should also return as Prime Minister and PPBM chairman.
The excuse that Mahathir cannot return as Prime Minister because “it was he who wanted to resign” will not work, as not only is it a lie, it would defy Pakatan Harapan’s own desire to “press the reset button.”
When the rakyat voted for Pakatan Harapan in 2018, they were told that Mahathir would be made Prime Minister. Mahathir was subsequently forced to resign when PPBM betrayed PH as he had effectively lost majority support.
His actions were in accordance with tenets of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia, something people like Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Lim Kit Siang do not want you to know.
If indeed Pakatan Harapan is confident that Anwar has the numbers, Anthony Loke, Hatta Ramli and Saifuddin Nasution would never have issued such a nonsensical and illogical statement.
Instead, they would be demanding for an audience with the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to prove that Anwar deserves to become Prime Minister, Emergency or otherwise.
But they did not, did they?
So obviously, Anwar does not have the numbers and will never get the numbers, something Anthony Loke, Hatta Ramli and Saifuddin Nasution have come to terms with.
And tell me, was it not Pakatan Harapan that nominated Anwar as Prime Minister on several occasions after the downfall of the coalition?
Was it also not Anwar who held a press conference to tell all and sundry that the support for him was ‘convincing’ and formidable’, days before he met the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and flashed a smile?
Whatever happened to the need to press the ‘reset’ button then? Whatever happened to the need to “return the mandate to the appropriate parties” and forgo a fresh election?
See my point?
They tried desperately to get the numbers but failed and now realise that a general election will favour a Third Force, i.e. Mahathir.
