Analysts expect Pakatan Harapan to lose in the upcoming 14th general elections.
This is due to several factors that the opposition coalition fail to address properly.
What are they?
What are they?
And how will the issues affect the rakyat?
Let’s take a look.
Pakatan Harapan not united
This is the single strongest reason why Pakatan Harapan is expected to lose in the upcoming 14th general elections.
Their leaders from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, Parti Keadilan Rakyat, Parti Amanah Negara and DAP.
Are all fighting to become prime minister.
And the grassroots are all arguing for state seats.
Universiti Malaya political expert Dr Awang Azman Awang Pawi said Pakatan is going through so many issues.
The opposition pact is not expected to win in the general elections.
Pakatan’s political parties all jostling for state seats
From Selangor to Melaka and to Negri Sembilan.
All of its component parties are at loggerheads for the state seats.
Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, Pas, Parti Keadilan Rakyat and DAP.
All the parties can’t compromise for the state seats.
At the Negeri Sembilan Pakatan Harapan convention on January 28k Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia delegates shouted at Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.
This is because PPBM has the least seat allocation in Negri Sembilan compared with DAP and PKR.
The same situation is also happening in Selangor and Melaka.
Due to all these scenarios, Pakatan is not expected to win.
Pakatan Harapan’s manifesto is unrealistic
In its manifesto, Pakatan said it will provide 200,000 jobs.
Dr Awang said Pakatan’s plan is unrealistic.
Pakatan did not show how it plans to generate the jobs.
Its plan is not workable.
Pakatan also said it will lower the petrol prices.
How can it do so when the oil price is controlled by the international market.
Pakatan’s manifesto does not reflect what the rakyat wants.
It’s promises are empty promises.
Pakatan Harapan is not relevant anymore without Pas
Ever since Pas pulled out of the then Pakatan Rakyat.
Pakatan Harapan has been struggling to stay relevant.
Although Pakatan now has Parti Amanah Negara to attract the Muslim votes.
Parti Amanah is not as strong as Pas.
Parti Amanah does not have the same clout as Pas.
Based on these factors, Pakatan Harapan will not win.
Penang and Selangor has so many issues
Pakatan Harapan is now mired with so many issues.
Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng is facing trial over a corruption case.
Penang is also embroiled with corruption alleagations involving its undersea tunnel project.
Selangor meanwhile is facing issues with Pas assenblymen.
Pakatan Harapan is in trouble and is not expected to win.
Pakatan Harapan not focused
Pakatan Harapan is also not focused.
First it wants to seek a pardon for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
At the same time, PPBN Youth Chief Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman is talking about Bumiputera issues.
And then Selangor Parti Keadilan Rakyat does not agree with Tun Mahathir Mohamad becoming the next prime minister if the opposition wins the next general elections.
Pakatan is in a mess and is all over the place.
Pakatan not a well oiled machine like Umno
Pakatan is not well organised and does not move like a single unit.
It should be focused like Umno whose members unanimously voted as one single entity.
During the Umno general assembly, members voted that the post of party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak.
And the post of party deputy president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.
Should not be contested.
All Umno members agreed.
Pakatan is not a well oiled machine and united like Umno.
Malays want their rights protected
In his study in Johor, Dr Awang found that the Malay voters are still loyal to Umno.
Awang said that eventhough many Johoreans were unhappy with the candidates contesting for the elections.
Many Johoreans will support the institution that took care of the Malays.
And only Umno can take care of the welfare of the Malays.
How will this impact the rakyat
The rakyat must think wisely before they cast their vote into the ballot box.
The rakyat must observe how disorganised Pakatan is.
At the same time, the rakyat must take a look at how organized Barisan Nasional is.
Would the rakyat want a disorganized Pakatan Harapan to rule the country?
Would the rakyat be willing to take the risk and vote for Pakatan whose track record is not known.
The rakyat must think about their future as well of their children.
Only Barisan Nasional can provide the rakyat a good future.
