Rafizi: Sabah and Sarawak reps will jump ship if…

rafizi-sabah-sarawak-1PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has once again rubbished claims by those who say that Najib Razak’s position as prime minister is secure.

“All it takes is for 13 MPs from Sabah and Sarawak to cross over and the Barisan Nasional (BN) government will collapse,” he said.

Previously, Rafizi had predicted that even if Pakatan Harapan (PH) did not emerge the victor in the next general election, Najib would be toppled by his own party members.

In a live video on his Facebook page, he based the forecast on surveys made by Invoke, a PH policy research initiative, on the likely outcome of three-cornered fights in the next general election.

Speaking to FMT, Rafizi said based on Invoke’s surveys, if the elections were held today, PH should be able to get between 95 and 100 parliamentary seats.

“Of course PH would like to win in its own right and get a 112-seat simple majority, but it is very likely that if we cross the 100 mark a new alignment with the Borneo-based parties can take place.

“The moment PH crosses the 100 mark, BN parties in Sabah and Sarawak will break away and negotiate for an expanded PH that includes them,” he said.

Rafizi claimed what was important for BN parties in Sabah and Sarawak was to remain in the federal government.

“BN parties in Sabah and Sarawak will be willing to negotiate with whoever wins the majority in the peninsula to form a federal government. It’s likely that PH will win in the peninsula,” he added.

As for Najib, Rafizi said it was precisely because Umno understood the electoral arithmetic that there would be an “internal revolt”.

“Even if BN wins 125 seats, there will be an internal revolt. So in order to be firmly secured in his position, he needs to win big. Maybe 140 seats and above, but looking at the situation now, that’s going to be really tough for him.”

In his live video, Rafizi also said that according to Invoke’s findings, if the general election were held soon, and in the event of three-cornered fights, PH would be able to win 97 seats while BN would take 125 seats.

“If this analysis turns out to be true, then you can be sure that there will be attempts to get rid of Najib from within Umno itself,” he said.

  2. Najib has insulted all Indians in Malaysia by branding Dr Mahathir as an Indian . Najib’s remark was meant to be an insult against Dr Mahathir whom he regarded as from Indian origin. In short Najib has despised an Indian leader and the Indian community. Infact Najib’s flamboyant wife , Rosmah Mansor, had in the past referred to the Indians as ” those kind of people “.

    Why must MIC continue to be part of Najib’s BN unless the MIC ‘s leaders are only after the crumbs that Najib threw at them. MIC members and the Indian community must stop being lied to and insulted by a Najib led BN. Vote out Najib and Umno Baru controlled BN.

  3. Sarawak and Sabah BN should prepare themselves for a possible coalition with Pakatan Harapan at federal level. When UMNO Baru has no objection to the Kelantan Government implementing hudud it was a clear indication that UMNO Baru and PAS do not care about Muslims and all Malaysians so long as they could survive politically. Other components in BN also do not matter as much as before to Najib and Umno Baru . The Islamisation agenda which is against the spirit and foundation of the Federal Constitution and Malaysia Agreement is more important for Najib and PAS political survival.

    Najib and UMNO Baru strategists realised that a Malay tsunami was imminent due to the massive scale of 1MDB and FGV financial scandals and the tremendous increase in the nation’s debts. Hence, the announcement of the Indians blue print but Najib has betrayed the intention of the Indians blue print by mocking his mentor Dr Mahathir by calling him an Indian. Who is Semy Vellu, other Indian leaders and MIC to Najib if he could openly mocked Dr Mahathir for being an Indian? Who are all the senior officials in the civil service to Najib? They matter not to him anymore if he could survive GE14 by pandering to PAS’s fake Islamic agenda

    The Malaysian Indians must wise up and so are the Christian Dayaks, Kadazan,and Dusun. We must save Malaysia from a crazy kleptocrat like Najib and we must stop Hadi Awang of PAS from implementing its own Islamic laws which are not even accepted by the practising Muslims in this country.
