In less than an hour, the second deadline given by Istana Negara for political parties to submit their collaborations to form a government and name their prime ministerial candidate will be up.

Members of the press have been waiting at the Umno headquarters in Kuala Lumpur for an update as Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders were spotted entering Menara Dato Onn this morning.

Free Malaysia Today reported that MCA secretary-general Datuk Chong Sin Woon said they had a good discussion and that the BN secretary-general will issue a statement.

MCA president Datuk Seri Wee Ka Siong was also spotted, along with other Umno MPs such as Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin and Datuk Seri Johari Abdul Ghani.

With Umnno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan posting a melancholic defeatist statement on his Facebook last night, the question of whether BN will join hands with another coalition to form the government continues to keep Malaysians on the edge of their seats.

Mohamad or Tok Mat said the people had spoken and rejected BN and that meant the coalition had no power to form the government. He suggested for Perikatan Nasional (PN) to join hands with Pakatan Harapan (PH) to form a unity government and that BN should remain in the opposition to serve as a check and balance to the new government.

Neither PN nor PH has enough seats on their own to form a government, which means a unity, or minority government is in the works.

Selangor BN communications chief who lost in his bid for the Sungai Besar parliamentary seat, Datuk Seri Jamal Md Yunos, said he was confident of a PH-BN coalition.

Umno vice president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein who has openly voiced his rejection of a PH-BN government today said if they still couldn’t reach an understanding, it would be better for BN to play the role of opposition.

“Whatever happens, I will remain loyal to Umno, yesterday, today and forever; and I will work hard to fix Umno and BN with my fellow friends,” he said.
