TTF: I tried to refrain from criticising Anwar after the 14th general election (GE14).
But I can’t contain myself any longer.
When he admitted that he would face difficulties managing and revitalising the nation’s economic woes if he were Prime Minister (see news item below), he was right.
However, when he claimed that the debt and burdens were the doing of UMNO, he was back to his old “foul-mouthed, rubbish-talking” ways reminiscent of the days he used to criticise Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim for ruining Selangor.
Back then, Anwar simply wanted Khalid gone to pave the way for his wife to be made Menteri Besar of Selangor.
Today, he simply wants to be Prime Minister of Malaysia and is dangling a carrot in front of UMNO, hoping that someone somewhere will negotiate terms of a JV with him before he effects a mass defection of PKR MPs from Pakatan Harapan.
But he’s wasting his time.
Anwar is not fit to be Prime Minister of Malaysia. He never was.
And even if he does become PM, I swear upon Allah that I will start a revolution and depose him come hell or high water.
As a matter of fact, if Mahathir were to remain PM by 2020, I will do the same.
The only way I can be prevented is if the police were to arrest me and ensure that I died in their lockup.
Truth be told, I do not think that any politician, writer or analyst – Anwar included – has his (or her) mind wrapped around the exact circumstances afflicting the nation, save for two people – Dr Mahathir Mohamad, and Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak.
Mahathir, unfortunately, has himself surrounded by a bunch of rotten scoundrels who’re helping him destroy the economy in ways that serves to his selfish and despotic intrigues.
He’s bugging the eyes of voters simply because he knows that humans have herd mentalities and can easily be manipulated.
Najib, on the other hand, is the best man to lead the nation.
He, however, is surrounded by circumstances that will make it very difficult for him to make a comeback.
And even if he does make a comeback, by GE15 or GE16, we’ll be back to square one, because he’s surrounded by short-term thinkers and strategists who think they know how the world spins but don’t.
That, in essence, are the realities we’re faced with as far as I can tell or see at this point.
ALOR SETAR: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim admitted that if he himself were to be holding the position of prime minister today, would be facing difficulties to manage and revitalise the nation’s economic woes due to the burden of too much debt.
He said holding the number one position was not an easy task as nobody expected that the economy would be this bad and not to mention the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal which had tarnished the nation’s image in the eyes of the world.
“The new government is facing a lot of challenges, even if I am the prime minister, it will not be easy, no one could have predicted our economy to drop like this, and made worse by issues like Felda and 1MDB,” he said when opening Kedah PKR and Perlis PKR annual general assembly here today.
Anwar added that he was surprised that at this point there were UMNO leaders who criticised the new government in many ways when the damage originated from them.
On the party elections, he said PKR did not want any leader to misuse their position to win votes because every post given is a mandate to carry on the transformation agenda.
According to him, PKR would not isolate candidates who lost in the election, instead they would be brought together to lead the party in the future.
“In this regard, I would like to advise the party members to choose the leaders who are honest, good, true to the struggle, not arrogant, not showing off wealth but humble and standing firm to defend the party,” he said.
The party elections will take place from Septr 14 to Oct 13 nationwide
