As expected, the caretaker pm’s post remains with moo, very much like a corporate-style resignation, where you are not allowed to leave until a suitable replacement candidate is found. No one expects moo to hurriedly snoop out, especially after pressing the emergency bell thereby halting the lift, leaving the entire nation suspended in mid-air inside the shaft, so he could announce that he can shit. Perhaps, moo’s most indelible legacy is his bi-monthly open close open close policy which left the entire nation in concertina barb wire, and hanging became a no way out. With an army of bullfrogs, he has, throughout his brief stint, sabotaged a legitimate government, samba with the royals, twisted simple decrees, and finally taking a heinous turn towards treason. By right, moo should be awarded the most mischievous former teacher award sponsored by ‘Dennis the Menace School of Juvenile Delinquents’.
Now that our YDPA can properly dissolve Parliament and call for the formation of a new government with the appointment of a new pm, the rakyat must stay hopeful that the proposed next Parliamentary session is only a few weeks away, and not months till the vaccination is over. If not, moo will definitely leave more potholes behind while breaking the bank. And we hope that our YDPA will endorse our ‘most obvious choice’ because rightfully, that candidate must come from the party, not even coalition, that commands the most number of seats in Parliament, unless that coalition is a registered party. Nothing short of that. We should also pray for a fair election within the house, by show of hands rather than endorsement by secret balloting which could be grossly manipulated.
Looking back at our political scenario, an avalanche of changes could happen within a matter of hours. So, should our royals keep our rakyat guessing for too long? That also doesn’t bode well for our share market. If not, we may set yet another record number of Covid cases before they decided that once again, Parliament is unfit for voting.
Between now and then, we are expecting some serious insider trading that works in tandem with our daily share market. Way before they shout for a proposer and seconder. We should also be expecting some undesirable candidates submitting their names for consideration complete with proposer and seconder. And no one can deny their rights if they are constitutionally fit and able.
