Muhyiddin Yassin Might be M’sia Prime Minister Again As Sarawak Coalition Ready to Form Government With PN, BN & Sabah Parties


If you’re unfamiliar with how politics work, or you think you know a lot about politics simply because you know the difference between PAP and WP, then the headline should confuse you.

You can read our previous article first, or watch this video to the end:

Simply put, after Malaysia’s General Elections, the government can’t be formed as no coalition party has a simple majority.

In other countries, a political party would join force with other political parties to form an alliance known as a coalition party. This is usually done before the elections, because unlike Singapore whereby a party can win the simple majority, it’s usually not the case in other countries: a political party can usually just win a small percentage of the total seats.

Election Results Open for Two Parties

Yesterday, two coalition parties won the most number of seats: Pakatan Harapan (PH), led by the political party PKR’s head Anwar Ibrahim, won 82 seats, while Perikatan Nasional (PN), led by political party BERSATU’s head Muhyiddin Yassin, won 73 seats.

Do your maths and you’d realise one of them, Anwar or Muhyiddin, would eventually be the next Prime Minister.

Now that voters have voted, it’s up to the political parties to decide the next alliance that’ll form the next government—it’s almost like having to form alliance again after the election.

If PH and PN form an alliance, they’d form the government immediately; but both didn’t want to, which means they’d have to form an alliance with other parties.

This is when they’d now have the win the votes of other political parties instead of the voters.

The Malaysia King has since given them a deadline to make a decision: by tomorrow (21 November), before 2pm.

The Comptroller of the Royal Household, Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, said it was clear that no political party has successfully obtained a simple majority to form a new government, so the  Speaker of the Lower House of Parliament Azhar Harun will get the  heads of political parties and coalitions to negotiate among themselves to form a government and submit the names of the candidates the parties believed can command a parliamentary majority—though we all know the party leaders would’ve already started negotiations before the Speaker could send an email.

Both PN and PH are looking to get the winning political parties from Sabah and Sarawak to join them.

And now, Sarawak have spoken.

Sarawak: Let’s Go For PN

The Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), a coalition party in Sarawak that won 22 seats, have said that they would like to enter an alliance with PN and Barisan Nasional (BN).

BN is another coalition party that used to form the government under Najib, but won just 30 seats this election—very few, but still a kingmaker. Partially, that is.

If this really does happen, it’d mean the new alliance, comprising PN, GPS and BN, would have 125 seats—enough to form the government.


GPS head Abang Johari Openg also added that their Prime Minister choice would be former PM Muhyiddin Yassin, which isn’t unexpected as usually, the head of the coalition party would usually be the Prime Minister.

However, the role of the Deputy Prime Minister is usually the coalition party with the second highest number of seats, which mean it could be former PM Ismail Sabri Yaakob from BN.

This means we’re going one big circle, as both of them have been Prime Ministers in the last two years.

However, do note that these are just statements made by individuals; the final decision would be made by tomorrow.

Would we be in for another shock? Would Muhyiddin give the DPM seat to Abang Johari just to secure the alliance, angering Ismail Sabri Yaakob?


Heck, would there be yet another snap election?
