Umno needs the seats in Sabah, probably Sarawak too. Mahathir can get some of these seats.
If Mahathir can help reduce Umno’s MP seats by a third, he would have succeeded in being a force to be reckoned with at the negotiation table.
Mahathir knows that there can be no New Order unless there’s chaos.
History is full of examples from the Philippines and Indonesia to USSR, Yugoslavia, Iraq, Libya, Syria etc.
The longer a ruling party or a leader stays in power and fosters an artificial kind of stability, the greater and more prolonged the instability that follows when that party and/or that leader goes.
Mahathir stayed too long. 22 years.
Umno has been in power too long. Since 1955.
If there’s a beginning, there must be an end.
Only God has no beginning and no end.
