Anwar Ibrahim’s Anti-Climax

Sixty more minutes to midnight and Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has yet to show hand. No defection from the Barisan Nasional camp is forthcoming. Looks like his plan to unseat Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and topple the Barisan Nasional government has fizzled out. Likewise, his promise of forming the next government with him becoming the Prime Minister of Malaysia on September 16 will not be realized. This failure to fulfill what he has been harping since March 8 will definitely dent his credibility. Whatever he is planning next, I hope it will not create even more uncertainty. I am truly fed up with all these politicking and bickering. It is not doing the nation any good, especially in times of economic turmoil.

  1. It would be better for Anwar to do it step-by-step or by the books instead of just barging into PM’s office screaming 31 names of MPs crossing over. If Anwar does have the names, its just a matter of time.

    Well, today is just not the day he had led many to believe. I hope this does not drag on too long. It is bad for the morale of the entire nation.

  2. Yeah, it’s pretty anti-climax but i look forward to the papers and news each day, haha.

    Well, I hope he does it before the week ends!

  3. Its a toss up between the devil and the deep blue sea from what i see.You have an incumbent that has a chequered past and another comprising of strange bedfellows.
    As long as able technocrats, e.g the Law Minister whom I have the greatest respect for his conviction,are being sidelined by the body politic,you will see no substantive changes for the better.
    I’ve folded my cards long time ago.

    We just have to choose the lesser of the two evils because from whatever perspective I view it from, the electorate will be screwed one way or another unless like you said, there is political will to change for the better.
