Rafizi’s “Interim PM” my foot

MM Online – Rafizi: Here’s how PKR will make Anwar PM(extracts):

SHAH ALAM, May 21 — PKR’s Rafizi Ramli outlined today how his party planned to make Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim the prime minister even though the PKR de facto leader is currently incarcerated.

The party vice president explained that if Pakatan Harapan takes over the government, the bloc would first make current parliamentary Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail interim prime minister, which has been agreed by the DAP and Parti Amanah Negara.

Dr Wan Azizah, who is PKR president and Anwar’s wife, would then help her spouse to be released from prison and a by-election would be held to make Anwar a Member of Parliament, and subsequently PM, Rafizi explained.

“People say PKR is delusional in claiming Anwar is PM when he is still sitting behind bars but it is possible.

“Wan Azizah will be interim PM and then Anwar will be PM. I am confident that she can help him to be released and a by-election can be called for in a month or two to make him PM,” he said during his wrap-up speech at the PKR congress today.

Rafizi Ramli is not known as one of the Terrible Talkcock Twins for nothing, wakakaka.

For a start, there is no such strange creature as an “interim PM”, constitutionally or otherwise. There is of course a PM, DPM, acting PM and deposed PM, so on so forth, but nay, indeed there is no “interim PM” as Rafizi would have us believe.

It probably belongs to the class of mythological creatures such as unicorns, dragons, phoenix, roc, griffin, etc.


Wan Azizah can and may (wakakaka) become the next PM and NOT the next “interim PM”. If she resigns to make way for another person, say, Anwar, to be PM, then the next person will become PM (not “interim PM”).

OK leave that Rafizi-bullshit of “interim PM” aside and let’s make a few typical assumptions for the outcome of the next general elections, based on the current 222 seats in federal parliament, for Pakatan to win, namely:

1. DAP wins 45 seats (instead of the 50 to 55 touted)

2.  Pribumi wins 35 seats (say it successfully rips off UMNO somewhat, wakakaka)

3. PKR miraculously wins 35 seats (and I am being kind here, wakakaka) and

4. Amanah wins 15 seats by ripping off PAS, wakakaka.

That will give Pakatan 130 seats, which means BN will end up with 92.
