  • Why M doesn't support Anwar as PM? This proves that M has no intention to allow Anwar as PM. Eventually the wolf's tail appears to show his color. PKR read M right that M has no intention to install Anwar as PM. So PKR is right to insist Anwar as PM candidate and not M or anybody else. So M also contradicted himself earlier as saying that PM must come from a Malay party. Warisan is not a Malay party. M is losing his credibility if he continues to be inconsistent.

    • If A has the support then show it. No need M or S or any other leaders. S asked for 6 mths for M and when M said, truthfully, its not enough to right the wrongs PN has done, S insists still 6 mths. That has been agreed on. But A still insists he must he PM no matter what. How can A be PM when no one in the Borneo supports him. He went to Sarawak & what happened ? Cold shoulder and came back with tails between his legs. A has to be realistic. Even if M endorse him, Borneo still dont want him. Now M gives a middle ground option. Vote S as PM and let Borneo have it this time. A couldve been PM if only he is willing to compromise some. But he cant, can he ? Alone, whether M or A, they BOTH cannot win against PN or BN. This has been proven. GE14 win was a double factor, when both teams works together and convinced the people of their sincerity. You cant deny that fact. Amongst the Malays, M is still somebody. A needs M if he wants to be PM this life time, whether he wants to accept it or not.

    • If M is sincere, he should garner all the support A needs to lead the country out of corrupt politicians.. Why should M be allowed again, when hes shown failure to the pressure and lost to opponents ..

  • Time to have someone from East Malaysia to be the PM. The people there are the least racist and are most tolerance among all races.
    Fully support the idea!
