Is It Wise To Have Pas As Still Part Of New Opposition Coalition?

It is hard for anyone to understand why Keadilan still wants to court Pas when it was the latter that had played them out in Selangor and caused the split in the opposition coalition.

Pas has shown that it is not a reliable coalition partner. To think that anything will change where Pas is concerned, is not only naive but shows a woeful lack of understanding or grasp of the reality.

Pas's overriding agenda is the establishment of an Islamic state with hudud as the sine qua non. That alone should tell you that Pas is not going to play ball just for the sake of playing ball.

Pas's entire rationale for its existence being the establishment of Islamic theocracy and the implementation of hudud, they won't compromise and you can't expect them to. Pas will only become a disruptive force to the opposition as it has turned out to be, anyway.

If Keadilan still insists on Pas being part of the new opposition coalition to be formed, it is better that they work with Pas but not also expect DAP to go along.

DAP is better advised to form a coalition with PAN and leave Keadilan with Pas. Not too sure whether Pas themselves will be interested to work with Keadilan, however. Pas, with Hadi around, is more inclined to work with dUMNo than the opposition.

There is no time to waste.

The Chinese for sure, and the urban and moderate Malays to some extent, have lost all trust in Pas and will not vote for the opposition if Pas is still part of the coalition.

That being the case, there is NO way for the opposition to capture Putrajaya come Ge14.

It would be better then for DAP to work with PAN or even go it alone if they have to. They might not be able to win the coming general election but will still be able to give the ruling coalition a run for their money.

Or even pip them to Putrajaya, if DAP and PAN start to strategise well and work hard from now to convince voters to change ship and vote out the ruling dinosaurs.

Who knows? There is nothing to lose anyway, for with Pas around, for sure the opposition will not win, split and disunited as they are now.

Keadilan can dream on - what a sad denouement from the promise they had initially showed.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
