The political drama in Perak has taken its toll on Pakatan and BN. Perakians are disillusioned. A lot of Perakians cannot accept the BN’s government of 28+3. They feel that a state election will be the best to resolve the issue. To BN, they have a simple majority and the right to rule. PR will do all it can to destabilize the BN government. This obviously has affected the image of both parties.
Now, the DAP advisor Lim Kit Siang has been quoted that he is willing to cooperate with the PM over the Perak problem. Anwar has also openly said that he’s willing to discuss with the BN regarding the Perak fiasco. Najib has also said that he keeps an open mind in resolving the crisis and he welcomes any form of cooperation. This augurs well for both the political divide since cooperation will be the first step to resolve the Perak issue. Let’s hope good sense prevails over our national leaders. Remember, it takes 2 to tango. Starting the blame game will never resolve the Perak issue. I doubt the Perak state government can function properly right now. Let’s hope the national leaders can meet soon with the interest of the rakyat and the Perak state be top priorities.
I notice a lot of online readers like to blame the BN government for the fall of the PR government. They have forgotten who started this game of ‘katak’ politics. Online readers must also be willing to accept new ideas and new thinking before having a closed mindset. To them, everything is either white or black. They have forgotten what people say about politics. They say politics is the art of making the possible impossible, and the impossible possible.
