916 is the anniversary date of the formation of Malaysia when Federation of Malaya, Singapore, Sarawak and Sabah came together under the auspices of the late TAR to give birth to a new nation in 1963.
Soon after the political tsunami on March 8 this year, in the wake of the astounding victory by PR in the 12th GE which for the first time since independence, denied the two -third majority of the ruling front in the parliament, DSAI planned a seizure of power on Sept. 16 by adding to his ranks just 30 more MPs for his government to be formed.
Since then, rumourmongering has been floating everywhere, entangling the whole nation with uncertainty. But , nonetheless, it also gives out a ray of hope to the rakyat who opt for a change.
With DSAI's landslide winning on August 26, speculations of taking over the power gathered momentum by leaps and bounds. And with 916 drawing near, the whole political atmisphere is getting tight and tense, stirring the pulses of the rakyat and keeping everybody on wild guessing.
916 is certainly the talk of the town now. But, would Anwar deliver?
DSAI seems confident, repeating today that his grand plan is on the track.
The whole PR keeps tight-lipped over the power seizure. BN, on the other hand, appears to be tense and excited.
It still remains a waiting political game!
The local Chinese dailies are flush with the news on 916-related developments.
