The slightly tricky thing about writing on a Wednesday (Nov 16) for a column that will only be published on Sunday (Nov 20) is that things happen in between. Like elections.

Although I obviously don't know the exact results from voting on Saturday (Nov 19) as I write this, the thinking among political analysts (and many ordinary folk) is that none of the coalitions – Barisan Nasional, Pakatan Harapan and Perikatan Nasional – will get enough seats on its own to form a government. Perhaps they may be able to count on the support of MPs from Sabah and Sarawak to make up the numbers, but if not, then two of these coalitions need to band together to form a government.
