In what can be seen as a victory for Bersatu president Muhyiddin Yassin against his own chairman Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Perikatan Nasional announced it now has majority support in the Kedah state assembly. That means Maddey’s son Mukhriz has been kicked out as Menteri Besar – for the second time.
Perikatan is gaining more strength, consolidating its hold in two other states, and ensuring Muhyiddin now has the guaranteed support of BN if and when a motion of no confidence is brought against him in Parliament.
If all this sounds grim, at least things are better on the Covid-19 front – Malaysia has recorded its lowest number of new daily infections in two months. So, yay!
