Pro-Najib bloggers have been burning midnight oil trying to project Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak as a clever and cunning politician who can rival and even outsmart his mentor, Mahathir Mohamad. Apparently, Najib was scripted in such a way that he isn’t afraid of a vote of no confidence, and in fact was excited and couldn’t wait for it.

 

Supposedly to be a “cool” leader, PM Najib is said to be ready for a vote of no confidence in October. Once he losses the vote of no confidence, he will ask His Majesty the Agong to dissolve Parliament to make way for a snap federal elections. Of course, the assumption here is Agong would obediently do what Najib tells him to do.

Desperado Najib Razak - Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures

His Majesty can actually ignore and withhold consent to such a request from the heavily tainted Najib son of Razak, whose personal account was flooded with close to US$700 million and is now one of gossip topics among leaders around the world. His Majesty can choose another member of the House of Representatives who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of that House.

 

For the sake of the storyline, let’s assume His Majesty agreed to dissolve Parliament. UMNO will then contest more seats and proceeds to win 100-110 seats. The assumptions here are: the internal and external factors haven’t change a bit from the day 2013 general election was held to the present day 2015. But here are the problems.

1MDB Scandal - Money Trail Into Najib Razak Private Account - Transferred Back

During 2013, there wasn’t any 1MDB’s RM42 billion scandal, let alone the RM2.62 billion “donation” scandal. Back then, the stock market, crude oil prices and local currency were still fabulous. And Najib administration hasn’t robbed Malaysians of 6% GST yet. In 2013, “Psy” was on the stage performing his “Gangnam Style”. But in 2015, “Najib” wasn’t on the performance stage for his own #Nothing2Hide event (*grin*).

 

Hence, it’s reasonable to say that it’s exaggerated to think UMNO can actually win 100-110 seats with the present political climate. The story continues that Najib will accommodate whatever Sabah and Sarawak want and thus pockets 45-48 seats. Barisan Nasional will then have roughly 150 seats and voila, hero Najib Razak regains two-thirds majority.

Malaysia Agreement 1963 - Malaya - Singapore - North Borneo - Sarawak

Life would be wonderful if everything goes according to Bollywood scripts. We know BN leaders in both Sabah and Sarawak are extremely corrupt. But they aren’t stupid even though they may not have CGPA as impressive as Ahmad Maslan’s. Can Najib really surrender Sabah’s 20-point and Sarawak’s 18-point autonomy (or even part of them) as per Malaysia Agreement 1963?

 

If Najib was as cool as he is decorated by his paid bloggers to be, he wouldn’t have had to cook up so many silly flip-flop stories on the source of his RM2.62 billion fund. And certainly his new deputy, Zahid Hamidi, didn’t have to create a cheap drama about 20 BN frogs about to jump in support of a vote of no confidence. Why didn’t let the frogs jump instead?

Twenty 20 Magnificent Barisan Nasional MPs Ready to Jump Ship

Since his brilliant advisers have figured out the prime minister could turn the table by passing a vote of no confidence, why tries so hard to make himself a fool in the eyes of the global community? Wouldn’t he score more points by “offering” a vote of no confidence himself, without sacking his old deputy Muhyiddin, and in the process didn’t anger the kingdom of Johor?

 

On the contrary, Najib could be “game over” before the coming October vote of no confidence. The outcome of Bersih 4.0 could deliver a justification to the Barisan Nasional leaders that Najib Razak is too “dirty” to be cleaned. Already, the prime minister is game over as far as international community is concerned.

Berish 4.0 Locations - Global Bersih

If our prediction is correct, Bersih 4.0 will be the biggest rally in the history of this country. Again, if PM Najib was as cool and confident as he projected to be in welcoming a vote of no confidence, why his minions went the extra miles in blocking Bersih website? Heck, he has even repeated the same mistake he did four years ago.

 

Four years ago on the eve of Bersih 2.0, his cousin Hishammuddin Hussein had declared Bersih an “illegal organization”. He also declared a ban on Bersih “yellow” T-shirt. Guess what, Zahid Hamidi’s Home Ministry has just banned yellow clothing after declaring Bersih 4.0 an “illegal organization”. This time, even the “Bersih 4” words are banned.

Police Arrest Bersih Protester Wearing Yellow

This evening, road blocks were set up on all roads leading into the city Kuala Lumpur. It was reported that yellow coloured clothing and whatever printed material with “Bersih 4” words have been confiscated by police manning the road blocks. Why creates such madness and panic if Najib was cool about a vote of no confidence?

 

Already, the Interpol has rejected Malaysian police’s request to issue a red notice against Sarawak Report editor-in-chief Clare Rewcastle Brown. Amusingly, a small fry, UMNO member Anina Saaduddin had sued PM Najib to recover US$650 million on behalf of the party. On the other hand, the Sultan of Johor lectured Najib administration that “a sack cannot conceal a hammer; a paper cannot envelope a flame”.

Bersih 4.0 - Yellow Clothing and Words Banned

The conclusion – a huge Bersih 4.0 rally, presumably with a right composition of multiracial participation, means Barisan Nasional will lose for good if Najib is allowed to call for a snap election, as trumpeted by some bloggers. Depending on how successful Bersih 4.0 is, the message could be used by Barisan Nasional leaders to decide and persuade Najib to “let it go”.
