I am in Kamal Atarturk airport now awaiting check in. I am surprised reading news of politicians defecting in Malaysia. When it was anticipated 30 politicians defecting at the same date forming a new government or dissolving the parliament, that was really fun to watch – with all true colors of the politicians coming out, guessing who were the 30 defectors, all the political drama of going to Taiwan for agriculture during ramadhan blabla.
Now that the defection is only one by one, one here defects there, two there defect here and only at state level (instead of federal level); well I have to admit it’s already painful to watch.
It’s almost one year after general election and the politicians should stop politicking as if general election is next week. It’s high time to go back to work and serve the people.
If PM needs to resign from UMNO, then go ahead. He can still serve as the PM after the appoinment by Yang DiPertuan Agung. Defections wont make smooth transition for sure.
In Turkey, the pictures and videos of Taib Erdogan Turkish PM slamming Israeli PM Simon Peres and storming out of Davos are everywhere. The Turks are really proud of it, whether they are imams of mosques or secular hotel owners, midclass bazar shop owner or upper class turks. They are all proud of Erdogan.
Maybe that’s something malaysian politicians need to learn…
