Anwar: We have a problem

MALACCA: Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has admitted that the party is facing a problem after three MPs quit recently.

He said the resignations served as a good lesson that only loyal members should be chosen as candidates in future elections.

“PAS had the same problem when its president quit while the late Tunku Abdul Rahman also quit Umno. Keadilan is now facing a little problem,” he said at a political rally at Pulau Gadong on Friday night.

PKR MPs Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim (Bayan Baru), Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal) and Mohsin Fadzil Samsuri (Bagan Serai) recently quit the party.

“We purge the party of such people. It is better for them to leave now than later,” Anwar added.

He said PKR elected representatives and leaders would be given courses to make them strong in facing challenges and to remain loyal to the party.

Meanwhile, PAS has come out in support of Anwar as Opposition Leader despite the resignation of the three PKR MPs.

“The three parties that form Pakatan Rakyat will continue to give full support to Anwar,” PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali told a press conference here yesterday.

He said the Government and the Dewan Rakyat Speaker had no right to decide on the Opposition Leader as it was determined by Opposition members.

The issue followed the resignations of the three PKR MPs to become independents.

Mustafa said the resignations did not affect the cooperation of the three Opposition parties.

The resignations could be due to frustration as they lacked the financial resources unlike those in the government who received RM1mil each for development projects.

He did not discount the possibility that it was connected to Barisan Nasional’s quest to garner support from Opposition members to regain the two-thirds majority in Parliament. – Bernama


This is an understatement for someone who was convicted to blatant abuse of power as the Deputy Prime Minister, at the times where ‘all the chips were up’ and ‘market was super bullish’. The facts= still remain, Pakatan Rakyat is about the coalition exist as ‘Marriage of (in)convenience between strange bedfellows that have adverse dreams despite sharing the same bed’. At the top of that compost heap now firmly fermenting is Anwar “Compulsive Liar” Ibrahim, whom so many recalcitrant leaders with PAS, DAP and PKR is hopeful for.

Anwar lied about ‘Black 14’. Anwar lied about “Forming the Federal Government by 16 September 2008” when “31 BN MPs ready to cross the party”. As per today, not only seven PR ADUNs either left to independent representatives or quit the party entirely, three PKR MPs quit the party and yesterday a dissident and vocal MP Zulkifli Nordin was sacked by PKR. For the record, the Kulim Bandar Baru MP was one of Anwar’s team of lawyers.

Anwar via his Anwaristas practice acute nepotism and favourtism, despite being themed as ‘Justice’. As some one who is not a member (most probably he wants to keep his ‘options’ open, as his undying wet dream is to be Prime Minister at all cost could open up opportunity for him to come back into UMNO for strategic positions in the government). Thus he is not a card carrying member of PKR.

His wife Wan Azizah Wan Ismail is the Presidet. His aide and closest confidante is the Vice President. His eldest daughter is an MP for Lembah Pantai (considering that PKR used to have 31 MPs as at 8 March 2008, one is the mother, one is the daughter, one is the father “special friend”, one is father’s lawyer and one is father’s ‘close and personal friend’), that’s 16% of the MPs is related to Anwar.

PKR leaders and members are tired. It is obviousthat the party was about and around Anwar. The rakyat is now tired. PKR is nothing but politicking, just to fulfil Anwar’s personal agenda and unrealised ‘wet dream’. So many hopeful and trusted politicians have since abandoned Anwar. This politicking include the recent sacking of vocal Kulim Bandar Baru MP Zulkifli Nordin on obviously ‘Kalimah Allah’ issue, which wedged not only within PKR but intra-Pakatan Rakyat.

For the record, Zulkifli was one of Anwar’s personal lawyers. The other Anwar’s personal lawyer who jumped into active politics for him is Zainur Zakaria, who recently turned his back against his former client and now an active advocate against Anwar and Anwarism. Zainur even called Anwar a “Traitor” back in 2007.

Today, DAP and PAS is still clinging onto Anwar in the hope that his oratory skills can mesmerised the imaginations and minds of the idealistic young Malaysians. On their own, neither DAP and PAS will never expand their market share beyond their existing domain and the leaders are so aware of this. Hence, they are hopeful for Anwar to ‘blind’ the minds of the young Malaysians based idealism, universal values and sordid hunger for gutter politics. Rhetorics, “promises that one don’t intend to keep” and demonising authorities are the only marketing strategy that the desperate politician knows how.

In reality, Anwar never did bring about new original ideas. His ‘Ketuanan Rakyat’ is what New Economic Policy all about; eradication of poverty and alleviation of the quality of life. The sacking of Zulkifli and the summary quitting of PKR Bayan Baru, Nibong Tebal and Bagan Serai MPs proven that there is no ‘democracy and justice’ in party which Anwar claimed risen from the fundamental of fighting ‘justice’.

Without doubt, Anwar is the problem. PKR and almost PR is about Anwar implementing his UMNO style management. The recent second sodomy trial proven that PR refused to back their de facto leader, especially when Anwaristas actively attempted to regenerate the mostreet demonstration ‘Reformasi’ to deflect the focus on the trial.
