Funny how fast things can change in politics. Not surprising but the plain reality can be quite painful when you are the person directly involved and affected.
Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim would be the best person who experienced this when he was the deputy prime minister in a day and became convicted sodomizer the next. He then became the opposition leader and that just attracted more problems for him.
But this is not about him. Another deputy prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin is now facing a similar if not possibly worse fate. Since being dropped as deputy prime minister when he was once a respected No.2, it seems that there are those in Umno who wants him out as deputy president as well.
Datuk Jamal Yunos, the Sungei Besar Umno division chairman fired the first salvo saying that since Muhyiddin is no longer aligned with his president, he should withdraw and stay out of Umno and the political arena. He said that Muhyiddin should ‘take a break’ and let other leaders work with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
It would not be surprising if this leader had once kissed the hands of Muhyiddin in respect for him. But then again, this is politics and more funnily so, this is MALAYSIAN POLITICIANS!
