ANALYSIS | Since the onset of the political crisis, the spotlight has been on two characters – Azmin Ali and Dr Mahathir Mohamad - who were perceived as responsible for the implosion of the Pakatan Harapan government.

Azmin was accused of orchestrating the "Sheraton Move", a putsch designed to install a new government with Umno and PAS helmed by Mahathir.

Mahathir, on the other hand, was accused of reneging on his commitment to Harapan as well as his promise to pass the baton to PKR president Anwar Ibrahim and reclaim the coveted post for the third time in the past three decades.

However, the events which unfolded over the past 24 hours indicated that the person pulling the strings could be someone else - Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin.
