The poll is at Malaysiakini here :
So far, 78% of over 3000 respondents say that YES Tun Dr Mahathir should be the candidate for Prime Minister under the Pakatan coalition.
If Dr Mahathir is named as Pakatan’s PM candidate, then all speculation will stop.
PAS will also have to stop this charade about working with UMNO.
With Dr Mahathir as PM candidate, the swing in the Malay votes (especially) towards Pakatan will be tremendous.
It will be suicidal for PAS to team up with UMNO or to play ‘spoiler’ and field candidates for three-cornered fights.
But watch out, PAS can still do an ‘et tu Brute’ on Pakatan AFTER the election results.
Meaning, AFTER winning seats with Pakatan’s help (and Dr Mahathir’s tireless campaigning) they can still break from Pakatan and join with UMNO. Have you heard about the “Mullah and the moola” caper? With the mullahs, its all about the moolas.
On the other foot, if Dr Mahathir is to be the Pakatan’s candidate for PM, the Pakatan can afford to do away with PAS altogether. Just dump them.
It all depends on whether Tun Dr Mahathir will be confirmed as the Pakatan’s candidate for PM.
In the meantime, may I humbly suggest to Ayahanda, whether candidate for PM or not, that he must announce that he will be running for a Parliamentary seat.
Langkawi, Merbok, etc.
Even that by itself will assist all the ELEVEN planets to align themselves in a row. Heralding the Dawn of Aquarius.
