This case of odd alliances has no room for dissentiants.Disagreeing or criticising its leaders is perilous.Criticising DAP leaders would be more lethal.The de facto leader had become defective leader. It is Lim Guan Eng and Lim Kit Siang that call the shots now. Anwar obeyed.
Zahrain Hashim's “chauvinistic, dictator, and communist-minded” must have hit a raw nerve.
The DAP is now front runner of becoming head honcho of Pakatan Rakyat and a power to be reckoned with.It is the most stable among the three coalition partners and most likely to perform better than its two other partners in the next general elections.It is assured of the bulk of Chinese votes.
PKR may become victim of Anwar's folly and suffer a blowout in the next GE (General Elections).
The Perak debacle, dubbed the 'power grab' and its execrable negation is DAP power politics, using its other coalition partners as front line to fight a war of attrition against the BN government for loss of the DAP government in Perak.
Former Menteri Besar Nizar was an accidental menteri besar, compelled by requirement of the Perak state constitution which prohibits non-Malay to hold the post.Otherwise, Perak, similar to Penang, would have a Chinese menteri besar, which was what Lim Kit Siang had thought would be the case in the beginning, out of his ignorance of the requirement under the constitution. He insisted all DAP lawmakers to boycott the swearing in of Nizar as MB but relented after discovering his mistake.
Onslaughts on the BN government and the Sultan of Perak militated the people's acceptance of the legality of the takeover.DAP's iteration of unconstitutional power grab by the BN would go on and intensify as the 13th General Elections draws near.It must constantly keep fresh in the court of public opinion that the Perak power grab was engineered by Najib.It's unlawful and unconstitutional.
It was fine and not unlawful when Anwar Ibrahim tried to lure BN lawmakers into his net.Only Karpal Singh was against the idea, the rest including the holies in PAS waited for the promise that never came.Sept 16 stood as Anwar's day of damnedest lie.
DAP had become the most powerful force in the Pakatan coalition and have successfully used its partners to strengthen its position.
Recent events have shown the power and influence that DAP wields in Pakatan.Three PKR's lawmakers at loggerhead with Lim Guan Eng have been shown the sacrificial altar.
Lim's sworn opponent, PKR's Zahrain Hashim left the party before he could be sacked.Two more PKR's MPs,Tan Tee Beng and Zulkifli Nordin are in trouble for the same reason, criticising Lim Guan Eng's style of management.Both, voiced their support for Zahrain who had declared himself as independent.
Both, Tan and Zulkifli are expected to face the disciplinary board soon.Rumours abound that the 2 MPs may leave PKR and stay as independents.
Are the Lims truly the hidden hands and power behind the throne?
Is Anwar Ibrahim a lame duck?
