Anwar Ibrahim’s unhealthy obsession with signatures, fake and genuine

When Anwar hinted that Azmin needed to resign as his deputy, many in PKR got disillusioned and held multiple discussions separately on the need to call an EGM to seek the former’s removal as party president.

A sizeable chunk of MPs are also convinced that Anwar does not have the numbers in terms of parliamentary support and get cheesed off every time he says he does.

The fake SD episode was the final straw. Many began comparing notes and discovered that Anwar had promised the same thing to a number of MPs and couldn’t possibly honour each and every one of those promises.

They realised they had been duped the same way they were in September 2008 when Anwar claimed he had the numbers to topple government.

But Anwar doesn’t seem to be aware of all these developments and continues to be obsessed with the need to collect signatures.


SUBANG JAYA: Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim seems to have an uncanny obsession with signatures and recently got his men to secure as many as possible from PKR leaders.

That’s a downgrade from the previous drive in which he got his minions to focus on Members of Parliament (MPs) and coaxed many of them into signing Statutory Declarations supporting his premiership bid.

That bid ended in the dumps though when it was revealed that his men had falsified SDs purportedly signed by PPBM, PKR and UMNO leaders to deceive MPs.


The expose prompted a sizeable number of these MPs to sign retraction and self-protection SDs that narrowed down the number of genuine commitments he had to less than 50.

It is learnt that Azmin has since told all PKR leaders aligned with him to sign any document Anwar or his men may present to them to prevent the latter from getting an accurate estimate of who is with him and who isn’t.

Truth is, many in PKR became disillusioned when Anwar refused to back Azmin over a recent sex scandal involving the party’s Santubong youth chief.

The scandal blew into the open when the said chief, Haziq Abdullah Abdul Aziz, admitted that he was one of the two individuals featured in a sex clip that got littered all over the internet.

Haziq fingered Azmin as being the other individual, seen having sex with him against the order of nature which is what got Anwar into trouble in the first place.

Back in 1998, Anwar was the Prime Minister in waiting but had his premiership hopes dashed when he was accused of sodomy.

Today, he still is the Prime Minister in waiting and seems to be in a race for the top job with Azmin, the person currently accused of having sex against the order of nature.

Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad was Prime Minister then and returned to the role following the 14thgeneral election. In 1998, he went all out against Anwar and got the then IGP to throw the latter in jail.

Today, however, he is throwing his weight behind Azmin the same way he got Azmin to throw his weight behind Anwar back in 1999.

And that seems to be the reason many PKR leaders and MPs are angry.

They’re pissed that Anwar refuses to deny Azmin’s role in the latest sex scandal despite the unequivocal support Azmin gave him back in 1999, and again, in 2014, even after the courts found him guilty of sodomy.

As a matter of fact, it was Azmin who looked after Anwar’s men while the latter was in jail and funded many of their activities.

When Anwar hinted that Azmin needed to resign as his deputy, many in PKR got disillusioned and held multiple discussions separately on the need to call an EGM to seek the former’s removal as party president.

A sizeable chunk of MPs are also convinced that Anwar does not have the numbers in terms of parliamentary support and get cheesed off every time he says he does.

The fake SD episode was the final straw. Many began comparing notes and discovered that Anwar had promised the same thing to a number of MPs and couldn’t possibly honour each and every one of those promises.
