A July to remember for Malaysians

As the month of July comes in, Malaysians anticipate a series of events that will absolutely leave a mark on the country’s history. Among others are the Parliamentary sitting on 13 July and the High Court’s judgement on Dato’ Seri Najib Razak’s first corruption case relating to the 1MDB financial scandal on 28 July.

The Members of Parliament (MPs) should be most anxious while counting the days to 13 July as this is going to be the first sitting that they would be able to debate after a long break due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Unlike the first one held on 18 May, this much-awaited session will witness the turnups of MPs of both sides where the ‘strength’ of Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’ Perikatan Nasional (PN) government should be confidently displayed. The question is, is Muhyiddin Yassin really ready to flash his fortress? Reliable sources told that Muhyiddin Yassin had asked UMNO for some 50 seats in early June, yet the plea was turned down as UMNO rather parades in GE15 on its own. And recently, another source revealed that UMNO is only willing to give 15 seats instead. By doing the mathematics, can Muhyiddin Yassin really pull in the crowd to side him on time?

Besides ongoing court cases relating to corruption, embezzlement, and money laundering involving renowned UMNO leaders, the highlight would be Najib Razak’s. Let alone having to accept the ‘surprising’ verdicts of Riza Aziz, Tan Sri Musa Aman and Tan Sri Isa Samad’s cases weeks ago, Malaysians who voted for a change and reform in GE14 had high hopes on the government’s effort to free the country from corruption by putting whoever had embezzled the country’s money behind bars including Najib Razak, his wife Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, Low Teck Jho or Jho Low and few others who became their accomplices. Nonetheless, since the new PN government has taken over and its known close relations to Barisan Nasional (BN) and the UMNO kleptocrats, Malaysians have become worried and concerned about the outcome of the rest of the ongoing cases. Worse, they worry that these kleptocrats would be freed just like Riza Aziz, Musa Aman and Isa Samad. Muhyiddin Yassin has kept his mouth shut on their verdicts and this gives the impression that he is also letting the people down.

What else could happen in July? Will Malaysians see the same old Tun Mahathir yakking about his combo selection of Dato’ Seri Shafie Apdal as Pakatan Harapan (PH) PM candidate, Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim ad deputy prime minister 1 and Dato’ Seri Mukhriz Mahathir as deputy prime minister 2 relentlessly? Or will there be another ‘move’ motioned by Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali and his bosom-buddy Dato’ Seri Hishammuddin Hussein? Or will there be a true light at the end of the tunnel for Malaysians who had been calling for reforms and justice? Let’s brace July.
