Mathematically, Hadi Awang could be next PM
You see, according to the article 43(2a) of the Malaysian Constitution, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall appoint Prime Minister a member of the House of Representative who in his judgement is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of that House.
I believe PAS knows BN just can't stomach Anwar Ibrahim as the Prime Minister.
What does that mean then?
It means that, if PAS demands for vote of confidence in Dewan Rakyat to show who gets the biggest support or confidence to be the Prime Minister, and if BN MPs, particularly muslim BN's MPs, vote in favor of PAS, then it is possible that PAS' candidate for the Prime Ministership will be the next Prime Minister and not Anwar!
Will Anwar once again fail in his attempt to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia? Will he miss the boat again?
Or will Hadi Awang create history by being the first PAS Prime minister of Malaysia?
Time will tell.
Of course before this could happen, PAS needs BN to like them first and Pakatan will have to conquer Putrajaya and dislodge a very popular Prime Minister. A tough feat indeed which makes the questions above moot.
But still, the possible scenario is something to think about.
