Yearning for political power is how PN personality and Najib relative Hishamuddin described some unnamed political personalities.
He could not, however hard he tried, have better summed up himself. A failed former defence chief he does not have any obvious claims to wield such power. By all means let him try to secure the support of the voters; along with his fellow coupists Moo and co.
There is a simple cure for anyone suffering from this “yearning”. Stand for election and find out how you are viewed. That would and should be a nasty reality shock for Moo and co. Which is probably why he, and his backer, daily seek reasons not to hold one.
