One thing I want to say about the political outcome is that although it is a backdoor government, it may be bad for the Peninsular Malaysia but very good for Sabah.

At last the illegal immigrant problem in Sabah will be tackled effectively because it was during Dr Mahathir’s time that the illegals problem worsened as Mykads were issued to hundreds of thousands of illegals to bring down the Christian-led PBS government.

Suddenly Sabah had the largest UMNO members after Johor. When this too failed to bring down the PBS Sabah state government because PBS managed to obtain a simple majority of 25 seats in the then 48 seats Sabah State Assembly in the 1994 elections, and PBS president Joseph Pairin Kitingan sworn in as chief minister of Sabah, however, as a result of defections of PBS assemblymen to the Barisan National, Pairin was forced to resign on 17 March 1994. PBS was left with 5 seats. PBS after 1994 was split into PBRS, AKAR, SAPP and PDS.

So it was UMNO bought over PBS Assemblymen to form Malaysia’s FIRST backdoor government in 1994.

Before that Dr Mahathir removed the Anti-hopping Law because it forbade the elected representatives jumping over to the other side for monetary gains and millions were said to have changed hands. Dr Mahathir defended the removal of Anti-hopping Law saying it was against the freedom of association right of the assemblyman, regardless of the rakyat who voted for the assemblyman.

So when this was happening to Sabah nobody in Peninsular said anything. Why be angry now that a backdoor government was formed at the federal level? And why is Dr Mahathir so afraid that the states including his Kedah will fall due to defections to Muafakat Nasional/Perikatan Nasional?

Dr Mahathir the doctor is getting a taste of his own medicine.
