The Ketuanan Rakyat Conspiracy?


It seems the Ketuanan Pakatan Rakyat Government scandals in Selangor have a slightly more complicated twist than what meets the eye. It is no longer about crack within the Ketuanan Pakatan Rakyat, but more of a story of conspiracy.

This is about a high ranking PKR official and long time party-less Opposition Leader’s political secretary’s intention to ascend as the Selangor Menteri Besar (MB) if the Opposition takes over as the state government. However, former abuse-of-power convict Anwar chose former Guthrie Executive Chairman Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim instead.

The young and powerful PKR leader  have been said to be upset over this for some time. As commonly known, he has had many falling outs with Khalid and they are no longer on speaking terms. In the party hierarchy, he holds a more prominent position compared to Khalid. It  is also said that he is no longer on speaking terms with PKR President Wan Azizah Wan Ismail. Apparently, it seems because he feels sidelined in the party leadership. On top of that, rumour has it that this is about his wife. Her mere presence is said to be bothering Wan Azizah as the woman was said to be involved with Anwar at one point of time.

Anyway, the now infamous boyfriend of Selangor Exco Elizabeth Wong, who abruptly resigned recently in the height of the photo controversy, Hilmi Malek is the PKR  high ranking official’s boy. Whereas Elizabeth herself was Wan Azizah’s PA. There is a strong suspicion within PKR that this aspiring Deputy President may have had a role in leaking the photos because this would be a blow to Wan Azizah. It seems soon after the pictures were leaked, inferences were made from within PKR that Tan Sri Khalid may have had more than just a passing relationship with Elizabeth Wong.

More importantly, it might be a fatal blow to MB Khalid and the PKR strategist would have a strong chance assuming the seat of the Chief Executive of the wealthiest state in the Federation. The leakage of the 46 cows for Hari Raya Aidil Adha slaughter and the personal Lexus maintenance bill was also linked to his camp within PKR.

In any case, there is still some mystery looming about Eli Wong’s case. If there were just those photos of her asleep naked (which is not really “exciting”, unlike former Health Minister Chua Soi Lek late 2007) why is she resigning? They are after all photos taken without her knowledge.

The most probable answer is, rumour has it that she is resigning because there are still more photos that may surface. There is also rumours sprawling  around, it seems, a 35 minute video clip. However, contents are not certain.

Rumour has it that is most probably why she is resigning.

As they might always say, “There are honours amongst thieves”. Then again, this is not about common thieves. They are simply people who sordidly distrust each other. The back-stabbing is very apparent. This PKR story within Selangor Ketuanan Pakatan Rakyat has not even taken into consideration about how PAS is very dissatisfied with the unholy coalition. Not to mention  PAS’s champion of intellectualism and morality Dr. Hassan Ali’s uneasiness sitting on the same state Cabinet with the alleged DAP champion of brothels.

Are we surprise with this conspiracy theory? Then again, that was Anwar’s line of defense during his abuse-of-power and sodomy trial, all the way. As they, “What goes around, comes around”. Anwar, is tasting his own bitter medicine, again.

PKR had been always coveniently blaming BN, especially UMNO on almost every scandals they have to face. Most probably, this one is about a conspiracy within PKR to topple one of their own. It is widely known Anwar no longer can control Khalid.  Khalid has been said to be ‘listening’ to DAP within the coalition a little bit too much. If and when Anwar were to ask Khalid to step down in the overwhelming  controversy and sensation created by the MACC investigation, it proves the strong point that it was an ‘inside job’ all along. That is, conspiracy within.
