We can take over Putrajaya if Parliament is dissolved. I am confident because in Permatang Pauh, although Pakatan's majority was less than 9,000, it's because of the low voter turnout.

Mahathir never likes to lose a war. We are going to continue hearing his criticisms of Najib and demands for him to step down in favor of Muhyuddin. This puts Muhyuddin on the spot, whether to remain loyal to Najib or take the cue from Mahathir to force his boss to go. This state of neither here nor there cannot go on for long.
Syed Hamid Albar, former Home Minister, commenting on Umno’s internal turmoil
The immediate check for a responsible board is to appoint an independent (auditor) now … otherwise the board and management, in my view, should resign. It is your basic responsibility.

If you do that then it’s better for you to step down and let someone else come in and take over.
