DR Mahathir Mohamad’s mission to drive Prime Minister Najib Razak out of Putrajaya in the 14th general election will fail, a nationwide survey has shown.

The Merdeka Centre for Opinion Research poll conducted in December finds that although Barisan Nasional’s (BN) share of the popular vote is likely to shrink further, a combination of three-cornered fights and redelineation could enable the coalition to regain a two-thirds majority in the Dewan Rakyat.

  • Too.many people not understand 1MDB is not about just stolen money. The destruction of governance that came with it is disaster waiting to happen. Cost of living and wages problems will blow up if it's not fixed. It is about income and cost for living but when it happens it's too late to fix.

    • You want to restore better governance by introducing Mahathirism. GOOD LUCK. The reason PH wants Mahathir is of the fact that they think PH could ride on him. PPBM might ally with UMNO in the end.

      U turn can keep happening.

      Cost of living and wages problems will blow up if it's not fixed.

      Sorry man, PH has no better manifesto at the moment except replacing Banglas with you.

      Many PH especially rich DAP supporters relied economy of cheap labor.

      Bangla is much preferred than you. What they want is your VOTE only.

      DAP will not dare to challenge the status quo as that would weaken PH support from rural Tongkat Supremacist Mahathir Made Malays.

      The new PH will also not fire the Malay dominated government servants for you.

      MCA and Gerakan are reduced to chow kow.

      You want better wages - cut some skin underneath, profess some verbs - best is to be n love with one of them and consummate.

  • Survey is purely based on prediction or probably hearsay but Murphy's Law applies - Expect the Unexpected.
    If one follows the update on Malaysoa politicd as days drawing nearer to GE 14 things look like getting out of hand and childish rival between party. Party can have good track records but just one mistakes from any individual in the party will be disaster or backlash . So all prediction or survey will just be a headline.
