The 14th general election in all respects will be a bitter sweet pill for Pakatan Harapan.
The 14th general election will be bitter because things are not looking very promising for Pakatan Harapan. The divisions that have always been within the coalition are deepening.
To have an indication of the Pakatan’s discord, just read how Badrul Hisham Shaharin (Chegu Bard) explains it.
Beritadaily: “Some of those in the anti-Azmin faction are Rafizi Ramli (Pandan MP and PKR vice president), Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (PKR secretary general) and Nurul Izzah Anwar (Lembah Pantai MP and PKR vice president).

The Selangor Menteri Besar is well aware of the dog eat dog climate that exist in the Pakatan coalition; after all their coalition was born out of strife and chaos. This is no doubt why Azmin Ali is trying to find allies in PAS that will help him stay in office.
There was a time Azmin thought that he could solicit the help of Tun Mahathir to climb up the political ladder; but the former prime minister has only one shot and he is using that one shot to try and keep his son (Mukhriz) head above the water.
However, least we think Azmin Ali will be the recipient of the bitter pill we should also look a few components in the Pakatan coalition who are well aware that the bitter pill is coming with the 14th general election.
Mat Sabu and Amanah had a credible base when they were part of PAS, but lost that credibility after they were enticed to run over to the DAP. Now they (Amanah) are only seen as another assortment of puppets for Lim Kit Siang to parade before the Malays.
For former deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin; what more can be said. Every time he looks at the seat that he once occupied he realizes that he was dupped!
The bitter pill for Mukhriz Mahathir is the realization that the 14th general election is it; there will be no encore. Mukhriz will only be listed as one of Mahathir’s children. A man who was thrust into politics, but like Datuk Wan Azizah Ismail does not have the tools or temperament.
Tun Mahathir bitter pill; knowing that he cannot build the dynasty that Lee Kwan Yee has; and perhaps that is why he (Mahathir) threw his hat back in the political ring. He knows that his son cannot carry the mantle, so he wants to go into the history books as being Prime Minister twice.
Lim Kit Siang’ bitter pill leading up to GE14 is Tun Mahathir. When you marry or partner with someone who you don’t like and who doesn’t like you, the results are never good; no matter the spin one tries to put on it.
Still it is not all doom and gloom for Pakatan Harapan. Where there is a Yin there’s a Yang. So where the 14th general election provides Pakatan Harapan with the bitter pill of defeat, it will also provide them with a sweet pill.
Their sweet pill is that Pakatan’s defeat in the election will be seen as payback for all the slanderous allegations which they brought forth against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and PAS president Hadi Abdul Awang.
