The media frontpaged the 749,731 new voters that will be automatically registered to vote for the Johor snap state election. Immediately, there is a widespread perception developing that Syed Saddiq will be a phenomenon and holds the card for the next state government for Johor.
There is already talk that Muda will be in coalition with Pejuang and Warisan with the likelihood of close cooperation with DAP with and without Amanah or PKR.
The opposition parties are in disarray and the only way to stop BN is for a grand coalition between PN and PH. The question is whether it is ideologically and personalities involved compatible.
Azmin is considered to have betrayed PKR, it does look possible for PKR to accept PPBM. More so, it is similar to repeating their cheated cooperation with Tun Mahathir.
Nevertheless, Muralitharan Ramachandran warned in the New Malaysia Herald news site that "Contesting parties should not be overconfident" as he focused to advise on BN not to lose sight.
There could be many reasons. For one, the perception that Syed Saddiq and Muda represent a new wave of young voters could be beyond the conversation that KJ once created in his 20s.
The automatic registration made the wave a possibility, but it does not necessarily benefit Muda. Much work need to be done.
The reality is the automatic registration and younger entry to voting at 18 year old are two new unknown political phenomenons in Malaysia.
