Bersih should stop lying to the people, ask Anwar Ibrahim what really happened

If Bersih is so concerned that ‘democracy was stolen’, it should take the matter up with PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim by first reprimanding him for making the previous Prime Minister’s days in office “a living hell.” Source (pic): FMT

The Pakatan Harapan led government collapsed due largely to the enormous pressure Anwar and his men exerted on Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad regarding power transition.

Anwar himself admitted in parliament that the so-called ‘two-year’ timeframe Pakatan Harapan leaders were said to have agreed upon was non-existent.

Yet, he refused to allow even a year to go by before harping on transition as if there was no tomorrow and even ‘warned’ Mahathir at one point that he had numbers.

This caused many MPs to worry that Anwar, whose own party was collapsing, was power crazed and would not be able to sustain a stable government if given a chance.

As a result, they took the shortcut by forging an alliance with UMNO and PAS, seeing that the Pakatan Harapan led government was a disaster waiting to happen.


PETALING JAYA: The recently established Perikatan Nasional alliance should not prevent activist groups from staging peaceful protests the same way the previous Pakatan Harapan led administration allowed Malay-Muslim groups to do so.

Given that the collapse of government was not by means of an election, there will naturally be dissatisfaction among various groups that would want to express their concerns and (or) disbelief.




It is essential that these groups be allowed to do so as a clampdown would only inspire more groups to take to the streets due to frustration.

That having been said, I would like to pick a bone with Bersih 2.0 over claims that the collapse of the Pakatan Harapan led government was through ‘democratic thievery’.

In the first place, the people of Malaysia went into election to vote Members of Parliament (MP), not the Government of Malaysia (GoM).

In the second place, it is the prerogative of the Prime Minister to form the Federal Cabinet by appointing any MP to participate in that Cabinet, even if an MP isn’t from the ruling coalition.

So you see, the notion that “the PH led government was brought down through democratic thievery” holds no water.

It wouldn’t matter who hopped over to which party or which party forged a new alliance, as at the end of the day, it is the prerogative of the sitting Prime Minister to decide who he (or she) wants in his (or her) Cabinet.

If Bersih is so concerned that ‘democracy was stolen’, it should take the matter up with PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim by first reprimanding him for making the previous Prime Minister’s days in office “a living hell.”

It is this which Bersih 2.0 should be talking about, not democratic thievery or what have you.
