Lim Kit Siang has ducked behind the scenes to give Malays the impression that Tun Mahathir is running the Pakatan Harapan opposition. However the reality is that Lim Kit Siang is still showing that he is in charge by allowing this little farce to continue.
Lim Kit Siang’s strategy is give the impression to give Malays the impression that the election is about which group led by Muslim’s is to be in charge; either Barisan Nasional led by UMNO or Pakatan Harapan which is really led by Lim Kit Siang and his DAP.
So having Tun Mahathir and Datuk Wan Aziza as one and two respectively for the top post is all about creating a perception; while reality on the other is something far more conniving.
Tun Mahathir wants to get back in office so that he can pave the way for his son Mukhriz to become Prime Minister even though the latter stated that he did not want the position.
Remember the following excerpt:
“I actually don’t have ambition to become Prime Minister because I think it’s a tough job, especially now,” Mukhriz said. “If there is a change in leadership, the new person will be inheriting a mess. I don’t envy the next guy.
If nothing else, Mukhriz has apparently inherited his father Tun Mahathir’s U-turn gene.
Because now Mukhriz says he does have the desire to become a leader.
However Badrul Hisham who is known as Chegubard makes an observation that many share. He said that Mukhriz would not be able to shoulder that task (being Prime Minister) and would need support from his father Tun Mahathir.
Further to that he states the following: “Mukhriz has a weak character that is why he is called ‘Boboi’. He has the desire, but he is too weak and dependent on his father”
Lim Kit Siang knows this as well, but because he needs Tun Mahathir to try and capture Malay votes, he has to accept the weaknesses that come along with his son.
Just like a couple of parasites, both Tun Mahathir and Lim Kit Siang are feeding off of each other; yet in the their case, Lim Kit Siang determines when and how much he will allow Mahathir to suck!
Wan Azizah is there as number two for pretty much the same reason Tun Mahathir desires the top post; to trick Malays into believing that DAP-led Pakatan is led by Malays. However the only thing she wants is to get her husband (Datuk Anwar Ibrahim) out of prison and hopefully get his record expunged; forgetting all about his victim. Therefore, if it takes her to be a puppet for Lim Kit Siang and the DAP, Wan Azizah is more than willing.
Now that Lim Kit Siang’s Malay faces are in place, he has moved to the background. He is allowing Tun Mahathir and Datuk Wan Azizah to give the impression that Malays are in charge; and that why Lim Kit Siang is quiet of late. The other master manipulator and some is using trickery to get Malays to believe that the DAP-led Pakatan opposition is run by Malays; when in reality Lim Kit Siang is in charge!
