Politics in the Pakatan Rakyat-led state of Selangor remains calm on the surface but how long will this last. This morning’s political portals reported an offer by the former Menteri Besar, Khalid Ibrahim, as Mentor Besar. Could an UMNO-PAS tie up bring Khalid back or is that merely a “cheeky” suggestion? Can in fact, UMNO and its allies in the Barisan Nasional capitalise on divisions in Pakatan? Today we explore the possibility that Malaysian coalition politics is moving ever so surely towards models we see in other countries.
