New political crisis in Malaysia, no one has majority, anti-India leader Mahathir Mohamad’s bail forfeited


Anwar Ibrahim’s party has an edge

Malaysia’s election commission said on Sunday morning that Anwar’s Pakatan Harapan coalition won 82 seats in the 222-member parliament, while former prime minister Muhyiddin Yassin’s Perikatan Nasional alliance won 73. Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yacoub has lagged behind in his traditional stronghold. His alliance got only 30 seats. As the results show, the ruling United Malays National Organization has been badly rejected by the people.

Mahathir Mohamad was leading the Malay movement in this election. Actually the population of Malaysia is 33 million. Two-thirds of this population is Malay. The Malay community fears that with a greater majority, they may lose their rights. These include large numbers of minority ethnic Chinese and Indian people. Although leading the movement in favor of a large population, Mahathir Mohamad could not win this election. Mahathir Mohamad was the Prime Minister of Malaysia for 22 years from 1981 to 2003. After this he announced his retirement. He re-entered politics in 2018 at the age of 92.

He said that he is confident of forming a stable government. UMNO leader Ahmed Zahid Hamidi said in a statement that his coalition had accepted the results.
