“The mediating party responsible to form the new government must be seen to be clean, fair, and just to the opposing coalition parties.
Way before that could happen, the mediating party must first and foremost, investigate the nature of one new coalition party comprising loose political parties whose approval under the Societies Act is suspiciously instantaneous considering the time taken to scrutinize their constitution before approval can be given because the announcement for their formation is barely a week old.
Therefore to contest as a coalition and endorsing the Prime Minister of their choice is at best, illegitimate, null and or void.
The rakyat hopes that the rules set before the contesting coalition must be made wisely and done in the true spirit of our Federal constitution. Well are they?
In our constitution, each and every citizen is granted full rights to be treated equally and fairly. Thus, when both opposing coalitions vying to form the government are tested, the rules upon which they are tested upon must preferably be grounded in the truest sense, fair and just, so that it would also reflect well on the mediator. The mediator should also be seen to possess this wisdom and ability, and free from being influenced by unwarranted opinions.
Thus, the MPs whom in this crisis are also rakyats must not be compelled by their own parties nor act under any duress from their respective party to support a candidate not of their choice or not of their own free will.
In that manner, each party in the opposing coalition has no right to call for an en bloc endorsement of a candidate. This is because we should all respect the freedom of opinion granted to every citizen of our country including the freedom of choice as enshrined inside our constitution.
Apart from that, both parties must not be denied reasonable knowledge or have access to relevant facts at hand.
A mediator or the authority who mediates is thus compelled to demonstrate his duty freely and render such assistance when needed by notifying the opposing party and preferably obtain the consent of the opposing coalition before any announcement is made.
If both parties are or has agreed to the results , then can it change hands.
The fate of having a candidate sworn in as the 8th prime minister therefore has no basis and is void. The announcement was premature, the coalition is not legitimate and furthermore it is not based on mutual consent. The fate of not having an audience granted to another legitimate coalition is also questionable.”
