The people have every reason to be angry at PH. In a matter of 22 months, the Bursa Malaysia was wiped out of RM 200 billion resulting in serious losses to the stock market players.
Dewan Merdeka was yesterday full of blue shirts. The BN members were in a jubilant mood. They turned out in full force to celebrate the 48th Anniversary of Barisan Nasional, the all-powerful coalition of UMNO, MCA, MIC and other associate parties known as Friends Of BN (MMSP, IPF, PCM, MIUP, MPP) that had trounced Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Perikatan Nasional (PN) in the Melaka and Johor state elections.
The BN members had every reason to feel proud. Voters are returning in large numbers to support BN candidates, especially voters from the Chinese community. The BOSSKU factor played a big part in rallying non-Malay voters for BN. The trend is growing stronger and BN must strike while the iron is hot.
Clearly, PH is at its lowest rating after being killed by the Sheraton Move. The people are just waiting to teach PH a lesson after failing to govern the country in a short span of 22 months.
The Wrath Of Malaysians
The people have every reason to be angry at PH. In a matter of 22 months, the Bursa Malaysia (Malaysian Bourse) was wiped out of RM200 billion, resulting in serious losses to the stock market players.
Bank Negara had to spend RM60 billion to rescue the Ringgit. The withdrawal of GST resulted in the loss of RM20 billion in annual revenue. BR1M was replaced by an E-wallet of RM30, not monthly, but per year! Farmers, fishermen and Felda settlers had their subsidies cut. The people were getting poorer under the PH government, compared to the good thriving days under the Najib Razak’s administration.
Malaysians were angry at PH’s poor performance. Their anger stretched until today as the spillover effect, compounded by the pandemic, has been extremely damaging for the country. Over seven by-elections, PH candidates had been defeated by BN, a clear message that voters want PH out. This message was clearly read by Muhyiddin Yassin and the gang, resulting in the infamous Sheraton Move and later the formation of the ‘Backdoor Government.’
The day of reckoning has come. PH and the Sheraton Move detractors will face the wrath of the people.
BN Strikes Back
OCTOBER, that’s the targeted date for GE 15. Political pundits have agreed in common that PM will advise the Agong to dissolve Parliament, making way for GE 15.
Political parties are now busy forming coalitions to fight BN. Muhyiddin has been busy calling for a coalition with PH, but DAP made it clear they will not work with Bersatu. Their memory is still fresh of the Sheraton Move that led to the downfall of the PH government. PAS is caught in a political quagmire. Umno is reluctant to accept PAS as a coalition party of BN. As far as Umno is concerned, Muafakat Nasional is dead, its fate sealed when PAS colluded with Muhyiddin in all matters against Umno.
The likelihood is that BN will face GE 15 without PAS.
BN is sure to capture the majority of seats based on its performance in Melaka and Johor.
BN will make use of PH’s failure to govern the country. The weak economy, political instability, the infighting amongst PH component parties are all evidence of PH failure. Mahyuddin failure to manage the covid pandemic together with the Emergency declaration will bury Bersatu’s hope of making a political comeback.
Yes BN will strike back! This time, BN WILL CAPTURE PUTRAJAYA, AND DELIVER IT’S PROMISE OF BETTER DAYS FOR THE RAKYAT.
Can BN Make Malaysia Great Again?
Malaysians are hungry for change, looking forward to a government that focuses on economic development, creates jobs for jobless graduates, that provides political stability.
BN has a track record that delivers what the people want. Najib has proven that during his nine years as PM. Malaysia benefits from Najib’s close ties with China and the Middle East. The One Belt One Road initiative makes Malaysia its main target.
Saudi Aramco invested billions in the Pengerang project as a result of Najib’s visit to the Saudi Kingdom.
GST brought an annual revenue of RM 20 billion which saved the country from falling oil prices.
Malaysians prospered under Najib’s administration, that is a fact.
MALAYSIA WILL BE GREAT AGAIN UNDER A PARTY THAT GOT A PROVEN TRACK RECORD, THAT PARTY IS BARISAN NASIONAL.
Pakatan Harapan had failed and brought misery to the country. PN failed miserably under Mahyuddin. There is no other choice left for Malaysians but to put BN back in power.
