It looks like DAP calls the shots after all
Salleh Said Keruak
Muhyiddin Yassin says there is no problem for a non-Malay to become Prime Minister, just like what Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad once said. The fact is whoever becomes Prime Minister is for DAP to say since DAP is the largest stakeholder in Pakatan. In 2008 DAP won 28 parliament seats and in 2013 they won 38 seats.
With currently only one parliament seat and two state seats, Pribumi is in no position to dictate anything. DAP is the dominant party and it calls the shots Therefore, Muhyiddin has to kowtow to DAP. Muhyiddin will do anything to please DAP and not upset Lim Kit Siang. In fact, Pribumi needs DAP more than DAP needs Pribumi. This means Muhyiddin has no objections with DAP being in the driver’s seat.
