Party-hopping is the nature of PKR political opportunists

In politics, the opposition comprises more political parties to oppose and wrest power from ruling parties.

The opposition should emerge as a viable alternative to the ruling parties. More importantly, the new political culture and new quality will surely result in a new victory.

The falling popularity, the declining economy and growing public dissatisfaction can give historic opportunity to the opposition.

Undeniably, the current political landscape is definitely not favorable to opposition.

Looking at the opposition hits by spate of defections and in-fighting, one can conclude that opposition has no chance to wrest power from ruling parties right now.

The defection of Bayan Baru MP Zahrain Mohd Hashim, Nibong Tebal MP Tan Tee Beng and Bagan Serai MP Mohsein Samsuri should mark the end of the wresting power by opposition.

Earlier, 3 state assembly persons from the opposition coalition in the Perak State Legislative Assembly have defected from their respective parties. 2 of them defected from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) while the third left the Democratic Action Party (DAP).

Should PKR MPs Wee Choo Kheong and Zulkifli Nordin, whom were absent from the ‘pledge of loyalty’ gathering, stirring speculation that they, too, defect the party, it will further worsen the political stability of the opposition.

There is no doubt that the possible defection of more PKR MP will occur and further worsen PKR's political crisis and relevancy.

Notwithstanding the fact that the unprincipled PKR politicians are political frogs, it is relatively clear that opposition parties have no hope of wresting power from the ruling BN.
