Patriot is disgusted with the latest turn of political events in attempting to form a ‘back door’ government.
As has been widely reported, Bersatu and a faction of PKR politicians are trying to form a new government that includes Umno and Pas.
This is shocking especially barely two days after the Pakatan Harapan presidential council had proclaimed the settlement of the issue of prime ministerial succession.
Patriot views this unholy attempt to form a back-door government as a betrayal of the people’s mandate. Patriot will not support any government formed that includes Umno and Pas.
If it is true that the PH government has collapsed, like any mature democracy, then the right thing is to dissolve parliament so that coalition parties can seek a new mandate from the people.
