Pakatan Rakyat...Marriage of Convenience ?
Former PM Tun Mahathir yesterday reiterated his believe once more that the Pakatan Rakyat coalition won't last as it was just just another marriage of convenience. Speaking to the reporters, Tun made this conclusion after being asked on Kulim Bandar Baru Rep, Zulkifli Zulkifli Noordin who are currently on bad terms with Shah Alam Rep from Pas , Khalid Samad. For Tun, parties in the coalition are not supposed to have different opinions at all and seems like BN was never in chaos before for the past 50 years.
For Pakatan Rakyat, the leaders need not to entertain or even bother on Tun remarks at all. The most important thing to do right now is to ensure all leaders from all levels in Pakatan Rakyat work together as one big group and show to the rakyat how strong the coalition is. This is a very heavy task considering the differences among the leaders due to ethnicity and religion differences.
What Tun failed to notice ( or pretending not to ) are the emergence of alternative coalition representing all the races in Malaysia and on the right track to replace BN in the near future. Tun neglected the fact that the people are starting to believe Pakatan Rakyat has the chemistry to lead the country in the near future, and they are starting to give the chance to Pakatan Rakyat.
Despite all the attacks through media and goverment agencies on states governed by the Pakatan Rakyat , Selangor, Kelantan , Kedah and Penang stood firm and on the right track to excel. BN has lost their ground on these states and will be no longer beleived by the people.
What the Pakatan need to do right now is to ensure their leaders work together as one team and always be alert at all times especially on comments that can bring down the reputation of Pakatan Rakyat. Do not leave any bullets for BN to use on Pakatan Rakyat. And be sure that the rakyat will be behind Pakatan Rakyat at all times from now on as long as their leaders don't screw up. BN is counting their number of days right now and Pakatan Rakyat is enroute to PutraJaya.
