Kit Siang: Brexit, Trump may prove gloomy forecast on opposition wrong

Published:  |  Modified:

Lim Kit Siang has taken note of the gloomy forecast for the Malaysian opposition by various analysts but noted that it hasn't been a good time for them either.

The DAP supremo pointed out that analysts had gotten several major predictions wrong in recent months.

"There have been many reports quoting pessimistic forecasts of political and economic analysts that they do not expect major changes in Malaysia despite the political and economic woes in the country as the opposition is in disarray and the absence of an alternative to the Umno/BN coalition.

"Recent times have not been good ones for analysts and even opinion polls, as evident from the Brexit vote in the United Kingdom and Trump’s triumph in the US presidential elections.
