COMMENT | The political deadlock on the appointment of the 10th prime minister has been haunting all of us.
The predicament duly faced by our king is understandable. Yes, not a single political coalition or bloc has managed to obtain a simple majority to govern.
As it turned out, Pakatan Harapan won the biggest majority by securing 82 seats in the 15th general election. The coalition that came in second, which managed to obtain 73 seats, is Perikatan Nasional (PN).
PAS, which is well known for its ultra-conservativeness and its extreme brand of politics, is also part of PN.
What is the best formula for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to find a viable solution in order to resolve the current political impasse?
It goes without saying...
