RJR: Anwar’s days as a politician will be over almost as soon as the war begins

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim displayed optimism that the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council would discuss the date of power transfer from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to him and claimed the matter had been ‘decided’ by the council earlier.

A well-placed source from inside PKR revealed that Dr Maszlee Malik’s resignation on Mahathir’s advice is the real reason Anwar is panicking.

According to the source, Maszlee is Anwar’s man and had been assisting DAP’s Teo Nie Ching fulfil Anwar’s joint agenda with the DAP.

How far this is true isn’t very clear to me. What is clear, however, is that the majority in Parliament is aligned with team Mahathir-Azmin-Zuraida Kamaruddin and agrees that Anwar is no longer relevant.

There may be an all out war between Anwar and Mahathir very, very soon.


PETLING JAYA: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim displayed optimism that the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council would discuss the date of power transfer from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to him and claimed the matter had been ‘decided’ by the council earlier.

Although several quarters from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) had previously brushed off claims of a “power transition agreement,” Anwar insists a signed agreement exists and seems bent on keeping discussions regarding the agreement alive.




“There are such views but as was agreed upon, it needs to be discussed between me and the prime minister and by right in the presidential council for the exact date.

“It is well worth to discuss it in a good atmosphere. There is no need to make it impassioned,” he reportedly said after attending the UPSR 2016-2019 Tamil School’s Excellence Student Award ceremony organised by OMS Foundation in Seri Kembangan toay.

On the 10th of December 2019, Mahathir told Reuters in an interview that he would not hand over the premiership before a summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries that Malaysia is set to host in November but could be ready after that.

However, four days later, at a forum in Doha, he suggested that he may seek to stay in power beyond 2020, adding that he could not guarantee who would succeed him.

Anwar’s incessant rants regarding power transition has created a climate of political uncertainty and turmoil in the eyes of investors and has caused many of them to pull out commitments, significantly weakening the economy.

On the 22nd of November 2019, Mahathir said Anwar had agreed during a meeting held at the Perdana Leadership Foundation that the transition issue should be handled without “causing too much strain to the country.”

“He (Anwar) said that he understands the problems we currently face and that there shouldn’t be too much tension (in the transition of power), with people making all kinds of suggestions like the date of the transition,” Mahathir said when asked what was discussed during the meeting.

However, a spate of events that unfolded thereafter caused Anwar and his men to push the panic button, seeing that his days as Prime-Minister-in-waiting may be coming to an end, forget becoming Prime Minister.

On the 4th of December 2019, Muhammed Yusoff Rawther broke the internet with claims that Anwar had attacked him sexually and physically and had even tried to sodomise him.

The claims were contained in a three-page Statutory Declaration (SD) which Yusoff read out to a press conference on that day.

Several days later, Yusoff lodged a police report and took a lie detector test. According to a well placed source, Yusoff passed the test with flying colours while Anwar has refused to undergo the test.

The recently concluded PKR national congress was also a huge blow to Anwar and proved that the PKR president had lost all manner of strategic control over the party his wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had founded.

On the 21st of November 2019, days ahead of a congress scheduled in Sabah, state PKR chief Baru Bian led more than two thirds of Sabah PKR’s leadership to Putrajaya to express displeasure at the party’s central leadership over its treatment of Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

At a press conference, Bian, accompanied by 18 party division chiefs and 10 leadership council members, warned PKR not to go ahead with the Sabah congress unless and until the party’s central leadership was willing to iron out differences.

Anwar ignored the warning and went ahead with the congress. However, the 500-odd crowd turnout spoke volumes as to who was truly in control of PKR, i.e., Anwar or Azmin.

There were even claims that Anwar’s men were forced to fork out as much as RM500 per head just to get a handful of people to attend the event.

But the real indicator of just how powerful Azmin is came on the 7th of December 2019 when the PKR number two led more than two thirds of the party’s central command and hundreds of delegates out of a conference hall where the party’s national congress was ongoing.

The walkout, in retaliation to Anwar’s address, was indicator enough that Anwar’s days as PKR president were coming to an end.

Everyone from central command involved with the protest agreed that Anwar had betrayed a ceasefire agreement which he had entered with Azmin.

A well-placed source from inside PKR revealed that Dr Maszlee Malik’s resignation on Mahathir’s advice is the real reason Anwar is panicking.

According to the source, Maszlee is Anwar’s man and had been assisting DAP’s Teo Nie Ching fulfil Anwar’s joint agenda with the DAP.

How far this is true isn’t very clear to me. What is clear, however, is that the majority in Parliament is aligned with team Mahathir-Azmin-Zuraida Kamaruddin and agrees that Anwar is no longer relevant.

There may be an all out war between Anwar and Mahathir very, very soon.
