How Did PM8 Make His Numbers? - UPDATED AS THE NUMBERS FALL FROM 'Coup Coalition'

How Did PM8 Make His Numbers? - UPDATED AS THE NUMBERS FALL FROM 'Coup Coalition'

UPDATE ON THE COUP COALITION’S FAKE NUMBERS AND ‘BOGUS PM8′

As it has become clear that Perikatan Nasional’s numbers were all smoke and mirrors, clarity is starting to emerge and ‘followers’ to evaporate. After all ‘PM8′ has been exposed by his own party as a bogus candidate with no legitimate status to lead the party.

1- There is no GPS in the Coup Coalition, they remain outside bringing top numbers down to 106
2 – At least 6 confirmed with Mahathir in Bersatu bringing numbers on down to 100
3 – Warisan not part of Coup Coalition either, bringing number on down to 91
4 – Baru Bian has defected from Team Azmin, bringing numbers on down to 90

So at BEST the so-called PM8 has only 90 MPs whereas tonight PH2.0 has declared a majority of 114.

Bafflement greeted the announcement today that the renegade from Bersatu, Muhyiddin Yassin, had been appointed by the Astana as the next PM.

Put simply, now that Mahathir (the legitimate leader of that party, according to its rules and as confirmed by its General Secretary today) had announced he was indeed still working with the PH parties how had Muhyiddin got his number of MPs to form a majority?

Number breakdown

Number breakdown

Using a recent table the balance is surely clear? Everyone had long since calculated that PH2.0 had the numbers and Mahathir had booked his audience at the palace this very afternoon to state that fact. Do the math:

Muhyiddin Bersatu Faction (very best estimate) 20
UMNO (very best estimate as party is divided) 38
PAS 18
Azmin’s PKR rebels (shaky) 11

Even were one to add ALL the East Malaysian parties (for good measure as it is highly unlikely PM8 has got many of them on board apart from Kanga Kattingan) the numbers are still lacking – let’s throw in the kitchen sink: GPS 18 (people have in fact already defected) and Warisan 9 and the rest 10.

To Sarawak Report this makes 124….. except.

Right now Dr Mahathir is reported to be meeting with several* of his party members at his house to discuss the party’s strategy. Warisan is by no means on board with the coup conspiracy and neither is GPS (which has wavered saying it will ‘follow the King’)a committed member of the coup coalition. Defectors are now abandoning GPS. UMNO is divided.

That leaves Muhyiddin’s best case numbers game flailing around in the low 90s.. at best.

So, has this been yet another extraordinary and audacious throw of the dice by a group of people who have money and power and friends in high places – simply a bogus attempt to claim the numbers?

Was there a decision by people who simply have nowhere else to go except to fight on till the end to claim to the palace they had the support – in the hope that Muhyiddin’s mere anointment as PM8 would be sufficient to do the rest and bring others running?

Money and positions count for so much in Malaysia’s money politics after all and these people may not have popular support, but they have a deep belief in money and power – Cash is King.

There must be a test of these numbers immediately. Parliament should be recalled.  However, is the next planned move of these wealth-mongers, who have proved so willing to deceive and cheat the electorate, to postpone or even abandon Parliament?

Or do they still calculate 14 days is enough time to buy more defectors and to cheat the people once more of the only right they have, which is to choose their representatives?

Sarawak Report stands to be corrected, like the rest of Malaysia, who are only now starting to catch up with a long-standing and deep laid plot by the rich and powerful to avoid the course of justice by any means they can.

*updated as reported numbers still not secure beyond 6 for Dr Mahathir
