Former Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin seems to be going against the Prime Minister these days after he was removed from being the Deputy Prime Minister of this country. He has used the on-going UMNO meetings to hit at the Prime Minister from petty things such as the general election dates and also picking on the new cabinet line up which is dubbed #TeamNajib. Muhyiddin even have the galls to say that he is doing this for the "rakyat" . Yeah right.
Firstly, after being dropped from the cabinet, Muhyiddin Yassin was exposed by blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin, fondly known as RPK, that he (Muhyiddin) had held a secret meeting with PKR No 2 Azmin Ali and DAP's Lim Guan Eng in an elaborate attempt to topple the Prime Minister. This was supposed to be done with the assistance of the former Attorney General and also some folks from the MACC. Fortunately this did not happen.
After his attempt to topple the PM was exposed, Muhyiddin Yassin then tried to use Johore, his home state as a leverage to hit out at the Prime Minister. First, it was the Johore royal family, then the Menteri Besar heck even the MB's son is not spared in this complex web of political patronage and show of support to pressure the Prime Minister to quit his post and handover it to someone else. This attempt also failed miserably.
Now, DAP, the party of Lim Guan Eng who was alleged to have met Muhyiddin Yassin in an attempt to topple the Prime Minister is now urging Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to hold a special meeting in Parliament before August 31 to appoint a new chairman for the Public Accounts Committee (PAC). However, sources close to the political elites in the opposition has revealed that the main objective of seeking a special parliament sitting is not to actually appoint the PAC chairman but to actually table a vote of no confidence against the Prime Minister.
Will this attempt succeed? Only time will tell.
