As Umno grapples with the RM2.6B 'donation' and 1MDB debts, the Pakatan jigsaw puzzle for PRU14 is falling in place slowly but steadily

From FMT:

No three way fights if PAS concentrates in Malay heartland

KUALA LUMPUR: DAP elder statesman Lim Kit Siang does not rule out new political breakthroughs taking place when Parliament sits on Monday. “Umno/Barisan Nasional (MP) MPs may be prepared to rise above narrow individual and party considerations to take a common stand with Pakatan MPs to save Malaysia.”

“What will be the position of PAS MPs in such a situation?” asked Lim who is also DAP Parliamentary Leader and Gelang Patah MP.

A new political approach was needed if Malaysia was to avert being hit by a “perfect storm” with a multitude of political, economic, good governance and nation building crises all happening at the same time, warned Lim. “Whether Malaysia can avert such a ‘perfect storm’ will depend on the wisdom and maturity of the MPs regardless of political party, ethnic grouping, religion or region.”

Lim, in line with the new approach to “save Malaysia”, was also urging PAS to avoid three-cornered fights in the 14th General Election come 2018. “PAS should focus on Kelantan, Terengganu, Kedah and Perlis only while Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah or PAN) contests in other states, subject to adjustments to the arrangement by the two parties.”

“This may or may not be a workable proposition as I have not discussed it with any other political party or personality.”

Lim was commenting on the various combinations and permutations in the Malaysian political arena, not only in the ruling Umno/BN coalition but in the Opposition, being the hot topic of the day. “The coming together of PAS and Perkasa would not forestall the holding of three-cornered fights in GE14.”

Malaysia was in uncharted waters as far as political developments are concerned, said Lim. “This was illustrated by the Monday gathering of seven top guns in BN led by former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad.”

Mahathir, he noted, was able to put aside political differences and get together with Gua Musang MP Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

Sarawak and Sabah BN already said they will support any winner from the Peninsular, as such with PAS slowly being re-accepted into Pakatan the coalition will be stronger than the present PKR,DAP,PAN and combined PAS PKR DAP PAN they would now pose a very serious threat to Umno, the mainstay of BN in the Peninsular.

If Umno continues to defend the indefensible it could meet the fate of its other partner MCA and Gerakan and MIC in PRU14... Know this, no matter how un-united the Pakatan coalition maybe its just possible we could even see a PM from either Sabah or Sarawak, them being PM maker in PRU14.
