Unity or minority government?

Should Malaysia have a unity or minority government or have polls if no one can command a simple majority in the Dewan Rakyat? Melisa Idris and Sharaad Kuttan of Astro Awani speak to Ambiga Sreenevasan and Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad.

Is this a possible way out of the impasse ?

PH nominates a PM candidate acceptable to both Dr M and DSAI.
Then Bersatu with 26 MPs rejoins PH. Total = 92 + 26 = 118.
Enough to form a new government !

And both Dr M and DSAI would have shown that they are willing to give up the PM position for the good of the nation ! The PM candidate should be from PH’s biggest parties i.e. either PKR or DAP.
