  • While they fight among themselves, PH is gaining ground with the angry and disappointed voters. UMNO is no longer a party that follows its leader. Its a big messy party now. They have forgotten what their grassroots want because they are too busy fighting to stay relevant. Self preservation is more important now for the MPs.They are openly defying their President. Basically the party has lost all its respect amongst their grassroots and the rakyat. They are getting weaker and weaker by the day..this will be their downfall.
