Mathematically, Hadi Awang could be next PM
Now that PAS has claimed stake of the Prime Ministership if
Pakatan Rakyat wins the 13th general election, a very
interesting scenario is possible.
You see, according to the article 43(2a) of the Malaysian
Constitution, the Yang di-Pertuan
Agong shall appoint Prime
Minister a member of the House of Representative who in his
judgement is likely to command the confidence of the
majority of the members of that House.
I believe PAS knows BN just can't stomach Anwar Ibrahim as
the Prime Minister.
What does that mean then?
It means that, if PAS demands for vote of confidence in
Dewan Rakyat to show who gets
the biggest support or
confidence to be the Prime Minister, and if BN MPs,
muslim BN's MPs, vote in favor of PAS,
then it is possible that PAS' candidate for the
Ministership will be the next Prime Minister and not Anwar!
Will Anwar once again fail in his attempt to be the Prime
Minister of Malaysia? Will he miss
the boat again?
Or will Hadi Awang create history by being the first PAS Prime
minister of Malaysia?
Time will tell.
Of course before this could happen, PAS needs BN to like
them first and Pakatan will have
to conquer Putrajaya and
dislodge a very popular Prime Minister. A tough feat indeed
makes the questions above moot.
But still, the possible scenario is something to think about.
