The Barisan Nasional now has majority seats in the Perak State Assembly after two Parti keADILan Rakyat Assemblymen Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi (PKR-Behrang), Osman Jailu (PKR-Changkat Jering) and a Deputy Speaker of the State Assembly Hee Yit Foong (DAP-Jelapang)decided to leave their parties and be BN-friendly. The State Assmblyman for Bota Datuk Nasarudin Hashim is returning to BN.
It is only a matter of time that the DYMM Sultan of Perak Sultan Azlan Shah will announce his decision on whether he should take the advice of the Menteri Besar and dissolve the State Assembly or give his consent to the Barisan Nasional to form the Government.
If the DYMM Sultan decides that the BN should form the Government, which is highly likely by virtue of BN being the majority, it will be a big embarassment for Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
Anwar had been telling the world that Pakatan Rakyat would form the Government on September 16 last year because by then he would get many BN parliamentarians to cross over to PR. September 16 happened only in Anwar's dreams.
While he is going around telling the world that BN MPs are going to cross over to his party, the Opposite is happening right under his nose. Anwar is now in no position to say that party-hopping is unethical.
What's real is that BN is about to wrest Perak and the people in Perak especially and in Malaysia generally are losing faith in PR. That will be the biggest slap in the face for Anwar.
