ABC News speaks to Malaysian MP Wong Chen and the Merdeka Centre’s Ibrahim Suffian in the wake of Anwar Ibrahim’s claims he’s secured a “formidable” majority from lawmakers to oust Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and form a new government (video above).

Malaysia could be set for more political upheaval just months after a new prime minister came to power, Al Jazeera reports. Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim says he has gathered enough support in parliament to remove Muhyiddin Yassin and form a new government. The challenge comes as Muhyiddin’s coalition tries to salvage the economy, which has been badly hit by the pandemic.

It is a common belief that worldwide
DEMOCRACY IS A GOVERNMENT
OF THE PEOPLE
BY THE PEOPLE
FOR THE PEOPLE
but in reality the laws in most countries GOVERNMENT may have become
GOVERNMENT
OF POLITICIANS
BY POLITICIANS
FOR POLITICIANS
as once Politicians are Voted to Power by People then
PEOPLE CEASE TO EXIST AND BECOME VOICELESS
GOVERNMENTS CAN CHANGE VIA FROGGING SUSPECTED TO BE MORE FOR PERSONAL INTEREST as REWARDED FOR THEIR SUPPORT WITH POSITIONS WHICH MAY PROVIDE LUXURIOUS LIFESTYLES AT COST OF TAXPAYERS OR OTHERS DURING POSITION IS HELD AND MAY CONTINUE DURING RETIREMENT WITH RETIREMENT BENEFITS TO COMMENCE AFTER SHORT SERVICE PERIODS WITH SOME BENEFITS EXTENDED TO FAMILY MEMBERS FOR LIFETIME.
