The New Straits Times-Sept 27
A few days after the shocking defeat of Barisan Nasional in the 14th General Election (GE14), blogger Bakri Musa wrote: “Umno’s implosion has begun.” I am not sure whether many Malaysians took notice of it. In late June, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said Umno “will return to Putrajaya soon and without the hassle of having to go through a general election”. He added that the Pakatan Harapan government “is unstable and will collapse in the near future”.
