DAP, trying to appease the Malays, would field Malay candidates in the 13th GE in Malay-dominated areas.
Something strange is going to happen which has nothing to do with UMNO's efforts to unite the Malays. It would be the Chinese that eventually unite the Malays or rather the Chinese threat.
The Chinese threat that may or can dilute and weaken Malays' political power would provide the impetus for Malay unity and the end of "ketuanan Melayu". The question is, under which Malay umbrella would it be? UMNO or PAS?
PKR is out. The Malay masses do not consider PKR as a Malay party and it would be the weakest runner among the lot. The contender would be between PAS and UMNO. PAS has one disadvantage, its association with DAP, regarded by staunch Muslims as associating with the devil, the infidel, a name given by PAS to UMNO for associating with MCA and Gerakan before its own alliance with DAP.
