Penang Deputy Chief Minister I Rashid Hasnon is just as forgettable and without purpose as his two predecessors Mansor Othman and Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin.
PKR’s Malay trio serve only as multiracial props together on stage with Lim Guan Eng. Their function is to be a decorative item — like flower pots.
If the Penang DCM I post is really functional, then there is no reason why Rashid should not move up to become the state’s acting chief executive while Guan Eng goes on sabbatical.
But the reality is that the Pakatan New Hope power sharing is a sham.
Even though the Chinese are no longer the majority race in Penang, nonetheless Cina DAP will never accept a Malay as their CM.
