“Bersatu only latches on to our strength. If it had depended on PH’s strength then, it may be Umno or PAS now.”

- Johor deputy liaison chief Nur Jazlan Mohamed

COMMENT | When Khairy Jamaluddin says that no one in Umno or PAS is more charismatic than the current prime minister, what he is really saying is that nobody in Umno and PAS is untainted by corruption scandals, or has alienated a certain section of the electorate like the way PAS does on a daily basis.

The reality is that Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin is the only compromise candidate that Perikatan Nasional has, notwithstanding that all bets are off if a snap election is called, or even if this plays out till the next general election. The current PM is the benign face of this motley Malay uber alles backdoor government and everyone knows it.

The problem, of course, is the treacherous Azmin Ali...
