  • Muhyiddin made a deal with the devil in order to get the top post. He sabotaged the legitimate government who won the mandate through Elections and their 5 year term has not ended. I wish him good luck .

  • Do not have enough clean people to form government? Then why usurp the power?

    Look before you leap, else you just make yourself a laughing stock to the world.

  • The nation is waiting to see your cabinet line up for obvious reasons and also are you going to agreed original plan schedule of the Parliament sitting next week or are you going to push it further in order to anchor your seat. The majority of us unseat the bastards & crooks of dumno only to see them resurface through technical means which not our taste at all so be warned comes next GE if not sooner.
