The still unsettled Pakatan
Salleh Said Keruak
Today, Pakatan Harapan said next month it hopes to announce its candidate for Prime Minister but it may have to be a temporary PM. After all this while Pakatan is still grappling with the problem of who to name as Prime Minister.
The confusion becomes worse when Dr Mahathir announced earlier this year he is the top dog of Pakatan. Then DAP leaders on the other hand make all the policy announcements on behalf of Pakatan. Then Anwar Ibrahim’s name keeps popping up as the candidate for PM but someone else will be temporary PM since he is in jail.
Never before has a coalition been so confused about who to put forward as its Shadow Prime Minister. By now they should have a full Shadow Cabinet. But Pakatan still cannot do a simple thing like this.
