Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad admitted that Pakatan Rakyat will sweep Perak if fresh elections are called.

He said, it was a ‘forgone conclusion' that Pakatan Rakyat would win if an election is held. "I think the opposition... well not the opposition... I think that Pakatan is going to win. So why have an election? We already had an election," Mahathir said.

“So why should we have fresh elections ?“ he asked, saying that it was costly and that he did not agreed will calls by other BN leaders for fresh state elections.

Ironically, politics is an art of impossible and BN is a very strong political coalition, thus the chances of the opposition of winning fresh elections seem very slim.

Politically, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad’s perception is controversial and may not be a correct perception.
