The first battle looms: appointment of the Speaker of the House. The last one,Ramli Ngah Talib, says that he doesnt mind staying on for another term. And why shouldn't he? He's young, experienced, and seems like an honorable chap (sic: appearances). But i have a feeling the Opposition will make a fuss over things, if for no other reason than to show that they can. A rattling of the sabres, so to speak.
In all honesty, they should. The tone of the next 4 years should be set in stone from Day 1. The Opposition should dig in, nominate their own candidate and slug it out. Of course they'll lose, simply because they don't have the votes necessary to carry an appointment. But, a strong show of defiance, will show both the BN and the People that they are there to do business, and will not be cowed or afraid to get it done.
As for me, a neutral observer, i'll be munching my pop-corn from the sidelines, silently cheering on the under-dog. The interesting thing about all of this is that its still not clear who that is.
