For those who may not have already heard; Tun Mahathir and Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia’s (Pribumi) status as a ‘mistress’ has been upgraded to that of a ‘concubine’.
Now for those who may be confused and see the two (mistress and concubine) as one and the same; be assured there is a difference.
The key difference: Concubine is defined as the secondary wife, who is inferior in rank. Mistress is a woman who has an extramarital relationship with a married man.
So when we look at Tun Mahathir and his Pribumi party we can clearly see that before their status was upgraded they were a mistress looking for any and every opportunity to please a lover.
Tun Mahathir had shamelessly taken his Pribumi party far and wide seeking affection from whichever corner they could find it. In fact, had Tun Mahathir and the other members of his unsavory bunch been of value to DAP-led Pakatan Harapan, they would have been asked to join with one of the component parties; then there would not have been a need for Tun Mahathir to rush to create party Pribumi.
Tun Mahathir wanted an existing platform from which he could push his son Mukhriz’ bid to eventually become Prime Minister. Mahathir knew that it would be close to impossible to start over with a new party. Nevertheless starting a new political party was what he was forced to do. After all up to that point DAP-led Pakatan Harapan only considered him a mistress and as such only sought out Tun Mahathir services to suit their pleasure.
Having Tun Mahathir and Pribumi in the role of mistress worked well for Pakatan Harapan until this year’s (2017) Umno General Assembly. Up to that point in time, Tun Mahathir and Pribumi status was such that they were not deemed to be worthy enough to attend the DAP’s National Convention. However, Lim Kit Siang and the DAP had no choice, but to invite Tun Mahathir after witnessing ‘The Force’ that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak wielded at during the Umno General Assembly (Najib’s Force!)
As much as Lim Kit Siang and the DAP hated it, they had to open their doors to Tun Mahathir and Pribumi if nothing else, but to show how diverse they are. With that invitation, the process of moving Tun Mahathir along with Pribumi from the status of mistress to concubine had started. The official upgrade or consummation of status has already taken place making Tun Mahathir and Pribumi duly noted concubines of Pakatan Harapan. (see link below)
Having been upgraded to concubine status, Tun Mahathir and Pribumi’s next task is to plead for seats to contest in the upcoming 14th general election (Here)
Apparently even after having moved from the status of mistress to concubine, Tun Mahathir and Pribumi still have to wait for their love to bestow favors!
