The Reason Why Some In Umno Are Angry With Muhyiddin And Might Support Anwar

The bottom line is, many Umno people cannot stand being number two and in Perikatan Nasional they feel they are number two with Bersatu being number one. And they feel if GE15 is held, Umno-Barisan Nasional can win enough seats to form the government and become number one again, with or without PAS.

What is the reason why some in Umno are angry with Muhyiddin and might support Anwar?

Simple. Some in Umno are upset that Najib Tun Razak was convicted — instead of the charges being dropped — while the case against Ahmad Zahid Hamidi is proceeding and the charges are also not being dropped — plus they feel Rosmah Mansor may also face a conviction and jail sentence.

These Umno people had expected Muhyiddin Yassin to arrange for the charges against Najib, Zahid, Rosmah, etc., to be dropped as balasan for Umno’s support in making him the Prime Minister or PM8. Instead, Muhyiddin did not “repay” the support Umno gave him.

The second and equally important reason is Umno was not given enough or more Cabinet posts. Considering Umno has more seats than Parti Pribumi Bersatu, they should be the “big brother” and Bersatu the “little brother”, instead of the other way around.

Since 1951, Umno has always been the “big brother” in the Alliance Party and later in Barisan Nasional. Today, Umno has to play “second fiddle” to Bersatu, and many in Umno do not like that.

Many in Umno want to see the collapse of Perikatan Nasional

Umno itself is facing a “mild” internal power-struggle with the Najib BossKu faction, the Zahid Hamidi faction, the Tok Mat faction, and the Hishammuddin Tun Hussein faction — with some in Umno in favour of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, some in favour of Muhyiddin Yassin and some in favour of Anwar Ibrahim (and some in favour of Najib coming back as Prime Minister).

Then there are those in Umno who do not really care which side wins as long as they “get something”. These people just want to support the winner — just like DAP who announced they support Mahathir, and/or Mahathir’s proxy Shafie Apdal, but are prepared to switch their support to Anwar if he gets the majority.

In other words, just like DAP, these Umno people will support whoever happens to be the winner, never mind who.

Many feel Umno should be the “big brother” and Bersatu the “little brother”, not the other way around

Many in Umno feel if Parliament is dissolved and a snap election is held, Pakatan Harapan, in particular Bersatu, will be wiped out and Barisan Nasional is going to bounce back into power. So, they want Perikatan Nasional to collapse so that Parliament can be dissolved and a snap election can be held.

The bottom line is, many Umno people cannot stand being number two and in Perikatan Nasional they feel they are number two with Bersatu being number one. And they feel if GE15 is held, Umno-Barisan Nasional can win enough seats to form the government and become number one again, with or without PAS.
