The opposition (Pakatan Harapan) has hit a great wall and is at a loss on what to do.
For a long time, the DAP believed that they had the inside track to China, but Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s successful visit to China has shattered that belief.
Just like his father (Malaysia’s second Prime Minister) Tun Abdul Razak Hussein, Najib has elevated Malaysia’s friendship and economic ties with China to an even higher level.
The following snippet shows the significance of Tun Abdul Raszak Hussein out-reach to China:
In May, 1971, the Malaysian government sent a trade delegation headed by Chairman of the Perbadanan Nasional Bhd ( Pernas ) Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah to the Guangzhou Trade Fair and later to Beijing. Tengku Razaleigh, a trusted confidant of Tun Abdul Razak conveyed a message from the Prime Minister noting that it was an opportune time for Malaysia and China to establish diplomatic relationship. He suggested three steps to take: firstly to strengthen mutual understanding via people-to-people interactions; secondly
to develop bilateral trade and thirdly to officially establish diplomatic relationship. (Read it here!)
Now his son Prime Minster Najib Razak has taken up his father’s mantel and is carving out a new chapter in Malaysia / China relations.
DAP led Pakatan Harapan would like nothing better than to have the Prime Minister’s trip fail. Think over that for a moment. Instead of wanting the Prime Minister to be successful as it would mean even more prosperity for Malaysia, they would rather it failed.
That further proves that Pakatan Harapan does not care for any benefit that would come for the rakyat, if that benefit comes from the present government or more significantly if the Prime Minister has spear headed the initiative.
That is the prevailing attitude of those (Pakatan Harapan) who say they want to lead Malaysia. From their point of view; no idea is a good idea unless it comes from their quarters and that they are the only ones that can Save Malaysia.
Given the prevailing world economic climate; the opposition (Pakatan Harapan) would wish for the Ringgit to remain weak and that no new investments would come to Malaysian. However, all the wishing in the world cannot take away from the significance and the success of Prime Minister Najib Razak’s visit to China and the visit’s positive implication for Malaysia.
So what does the Prime Minister’s visit to China mean for Pakatan Harapan?
If being steamed rolled over during the past three (3) elections was not depressing enough for them, now they have to seek immediate help after slamming into the Great Wall of the Prime Minister’s China visit.
And what about Mahathir’s planned Parliament visit; it is like throwing a pebble in the ocean; no impact!
