Listen to Ezam and sack Anwar, Nalla tells Wan Azizah

KUALA LUMPUR: A former friend of PKR leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has called on Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to stop covering up her husband’s weaknesses.

Malaysian Indian United Party president Datuk K.S. Nallakarupan said the PKR president should take up former PKR Youth chief Ezam Mohd Nor’s challenge to sack her husband on moral grounds.

“She should put a stop to it,” he said.

“I agree with Ezam. Ezam knows Wan Azizah well. Other­wise, he would not be challenging her.”

Ezam had said that Wan Azizah was willing to cover up Anwar’s weaknesses for her family’s sake but at the expense of the party and the rakyat.

He reminded her that she had a responsibility to PKR.

He had also called on her to resign from the party if there was a conflict of interest and told Anwar to “stop hiding behind Wan Azizah’s skirt”.

“Wan Azizah should be given the best actress award for being able to play the same script for the past 12 years and people still believe her,” said Nallakarupan, adding that she knew everything that Anwar did.

“If she chooses to ignore Ezam’s challenge, the public can draw their own conclusion at the game the 3As (Anwar, Azizah and Azmin Ali, PKR vice-president) are playing,” he said, stressing that if she remained silent, he would eventually come forward and tell all.

Meanwhile, the father of Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, who Anwar is accused of sodomising, has challenged him to face the charge without looking for excuses to delay the case.

Azlan Mohd Lazim said Anwar had been making statements, claiming that the case against him should be dropped because there was no evidence.

“If there was no evidence, why is he going up and down the court appealing and re-appealing for documents and DNA samples?” he asked.

The trial proper was to have begun on July 1 but it had been repeatedly postponed to dispose of, among others, applications to strike out the sodomy trial and to disqualify the entire prosecuting team.

The Court of Appeal will rule on Nov 6 if Anwar gets the documents and DNA samples that he claimed was crucial for his defence.

The sodomy trial and Anwar’s application to strike out the charge will be mentioned in the High Court today.

Azlan said he would not be surprised if Anwar pulled “more stunts” to delay the case.

He pointed out that even his lead counsel Sulaiman Abdullah had pulled out, citing health reasons, despite being seen attending to other cases in court.

******************

Last week, former Anwar political secretary Ezam Md. Noor made the call. Ezam who went to jail for his conviction of supporting Anwar, recently described the latter’s relationship with PKR Vice President Azmin Ali as “bedroom community”, which now has escalated into a ‘Ketuanan Rakyat conspiracy’.

This serious internal infighting within PKR is already adversely affecting Pakatan Rakyat as a whole, particularly in Selangor where is the only state PKR is the Menteri Besar. Anwar, who is known to prefer Azmin Ali as the PKR MB for Selangor is thought to be in ‘collision’ with wife PKR President Wan Azizah, who appointed Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim instead. As is, MB Khalid is having a tough time in Selangor  with Azmin imminently clear ‘throwing spanner to the works’.

If this infighting within PKR escalating and his own personal problem of the second time sodomy trial crystalizing, one would expect Anwar “Anarchists Agent” Ibrahim would turn into the anarchy again (with the deployment of the Anwarista cyber-anarchists), as a tool to divert the rakyat’s attention to the real problem. He has successfully managed to stir up emotions of the rakyat over and over again in the past and anarchy has been the underlying premise of his carefully conceived ‘bizarre’ politics. Rakyat should be reminded of Anwar “Compulsive Liar” Ibrahim’s inability ‘to put to the money where his mouth is’, particularly with his promise that “31 BN MPs ready to ‘cross over’ and thus Pakatan Rakyat will form the Federal Government by 16 September 2008”.

For all intent and purpose, PKR’s only glimmer of hope to survive even this general election term is for partyless Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim to be out of the multiracial party and life up to its prophecy to champion the rakyat’s cause for justice and equality. Obviously, Pakatan Rakyat (PR) would have to look up to another Leader, acceptable to Chinese Chauvinist party DAP and now what seemed to be ‘Pandemonic PAS’ and gell between the anti Malay/Islam, conservative ulamas, traditional Malay heartlanders and professional and pseudo-liberalist ‘Erdogans’. So far, PR has demonstrated little but ‘strange bedfellows backstabbing each other’ in a ‘marriage of (in)convenience’.

So far not much could be desired from PR’s controlled states. In fact, Anwar as the PR defacto leader did not manage to convince the rakyat thoroughly these ‘strange bedfellows’ could actually bring about much aspired changes and making the lives of rakyat being improved as compared to when they were under BN. What former abuse-of-power-convict Anwar Ibrahim’s leadership has demonstrated so far is ‘pandemonic primates’ and corrupt practices in exercising power in ‘new found wealth’ and abuse of power and positions. Of course, it is not without a series of PR elected assemblymen, namely Osman Jailu, Jamaluddin Radzi,  Hee Yit Fong, Fairus Khairuddin, Arumugam, Radzi Salleh and Badrul Hisham Abdullah leaving their struggle. PKR itself lost strong personalities such as Ezam Md. Noor, Nalla Karupan, Zaid Ibrahim, Jefrrey Kitingan and Christina Liew within the last 18 months.

Effectively, all of these issues have to be resolved within the next 24 to 30 months as Prime Minister VI Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak slowly regaining the confidence, eventually the support of majority of Malaysians with his ‘1 Malaysia’ reforms and the rejuvenation and strengthening UMNO which inadvertently will positively affect the other BN component parties.
