COMMENT After the quitting of each autocratic leader, it is not hard for the immediate successor who is in control of necessary resources to create a new political wave.

After the retirement of Mahathir Mohamad, his successor Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (Pak Lah) created the so-called ‘Pak Lah phenomenon’, and won 90.86 percent of the Parliamentary seats in 2004 for Barisan Nasional (BN).

After the resignation of Taib Mahmud who is also known as ‘Pak Uban’ and ‘Pek Moh’ (white hair), his successor Adenan Satem, who is also known as ‘Tok Nan’, created an ‘Adenan fever’, and won 87.80 percent of the Sarawak state assembly seats on May 7, 2016.
