Anwar, Anwar ……
From THE STAR:
Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has set yet another deadline for Pakatan Rakyat to wrest control of the Federal government.
Now, he says it will happen before the end of the year.
“It is not like something I will allow to linger for one or two years. The momentum will continue when the Parliament goes into session on Monday,” he told a large crowd during a rally at Padang Perdana here on Thursday night.
He repeated his assertion that he had the numbers to form the new government.
Anwar said the “takeover” approach would be peaceful because Malaysia could not afford the Thai or Filipino mob style.
Although his speech fired the crowd into wanting more, Anwar stopped short of detailing his “takeover” modus operandi, saying it would remain a secret until the time was right.
Anwar said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s decision to step down by March and hand over to his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would not halt the takeover plan.
Speaking in English for a foreign media in attendance, Anwar said he was addressing the crowd at a critical time in the country’s history with the global economic crisis happening and Najib’s ascension as prime minister.
Anwar also predicted that the global economic crises would be worse than the Asian financial crises of 1998/1999, saying economists believe it would be similar to the Great Depression of the 1930s.
PKR strategic planning director Saifuddin Nasution Ismail later said Anwar had mailed to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong a copy of the letter sent to Abdullah on Sept 16.
From malaysiakini :
Anwar Ibrahim today slammed critics who have been fiercely questioning his credibility. After his widely publicised bid to take over the federal government did not happen on September 16, some have even claimed that the Opposition Leader had lied about having the right number of parliamentary defectors to take over the Putrajaya administration.
C’mon Anwar you brought this onto yourself, Just be what malaysian want you to be…….
A SOLID OPPOSITION LEADER , Brilliant as you can be.
