Breaking News: Anwar Ibrahim to Stand in Permatang Puah

Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail announced moments ago at a Press Conference in KeADILan Headquarters on July 31, 2008 that she has sent a letter of resignation as Member of Parliament to the Speaker of the House, Tan Sri Dato Pandikar Amin Mulia. This is to make way for KeADILan de facto Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to contest as the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) candidate in the ensuing by-election.

All PR component parties have endorsed this decision and pledge the full and undivided support and cooperation. More details to follow.

  1. Din,

    I have to admit, this comes as a surprise. Didn’t expect that it would be the Permatang Pauh seat.

    But anyway, will be waiting for more info from you.
    su, the countdown has started. Let us see what Barisan Nasional will do next.—Din Merican

  2. Din, I really worry for DSAI and his family. The government is now going to quickly charge him with sodomy to stop him from participating in this by-election. They will do anything and everything to stop him. They’re such a rotten and very tainted bunch…it is a high stakes game. Malaysians must stand by and be ready. God protect him and PR!
    jojo, please do not overreact. Stay calm and rational. They want to create unrest and suspend democracy. At the same time, we are prepared for all political, legal and security eventualities since, as you say, we are dealing with a beleaguered regime. For them, it is survival at all cost.—Din Merican

  3. Wise decision indeed! Datuk Seri Wan Azizah you had been a wonderful wife, mother and most of all Member of Parliament, how did you do it? Thank you and take care. You are one fine lady we Malaysians look up to and love you!

    Those UMNO/BN desperados, should behave like true gentlemen and not like gobloks and baboons. They tried to create problems with ‘divide and rule tactic’ and see what has happened – Tajol Rosli got an immediate smack on the face by Perak’s PR MB Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin who said “PAS will remain in Pakatan Rakyat(PR) forever and ever”!

    Mohd Nizar has proved his worth and is now highly respected among Perakians of all races. Even Kedah MB Azizan remarked that UMNO Perak “got carried away”.

    Those numskulls in UMNO, how naive can they get, Nik Aziz was trying to ridicule the corrupt and the arrogant to make them look silly, and they all fell for it! Hahaha, he has afterall consumed more salt than they, rice in their lifetime. 😀 😀

  4. If they are serious about charging Anwar with a crime he apparently did not commit, now is the time!

    When Pakatan takes over the first step should be to prosecute the current AG with prosecutorial misconduct and send him to jail.

  5. “…we are dealing with a beleaguered regime. For them, it is survival at all cost”—Din Merican

    That is an understatement.

    Some of them are not just fighting to retain their jobs but fighting to stay out of jail!
