Anwar, who was supposed to have toppled Mahathir two days following the Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council meeting, failed to get his man to seek an audience from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong as planned.

His latest attempt at getting the KCP to seek disciplinary action against Azmin is yet another attempt at convincing PKR leaders he is in control.

According to records, PKR has over 200 branches (or cabang) all over the country with many in support of Azmin.

If indeed Anwar commands majority support, he should publish a minimum of 120 signatures to convince us that this isn’t yet another one of his “I have the numbers” ploy.


SUBANG JAYA: Sarawak PKR chairman Baru Bian has quashed claims that he issued a statement supporting Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Dato’ Seri Azmin Ali as PKR president and deputy president respectively.

Bian, who recently stated his refusal to sign a document pledging support for Anwar, clarified that a claim by an anonymous PKR divisional leader about him issuing the statement to prevent being booted from the state leadership council makes no sense.

“If you look at the statement, it is not my statement.


“It is the statement of the MPN of Sarawak and signed by 24 division chiefs,” he was reported by the Star Online as saying.

On the 23rdof July 2019, TTF posted:

Not only does Anwar not have the numbers, the majority of Sarawak and Sabah MPs are no longer with him.

They may even tell him and each other that they’re with him, but that’s all political at best. I assure you, their commitment towards “Anything But Anwar Ibrahim” (ABAI) was carved in granite on Sunday for reasons beyond the scope of this article.

Ask Anwar to obtain fresh SDs from these MPs and you will see what I mean.

Anwar is hard at the perception game, the latest being a ploy by the so-called secretariat of the “Ketua-ketua Cabang Parti Keadilan Rakyat” (KCP).

Just before midnight, he got the KCP to issue a statement seeking disciplinary action against Azmin for suggesting that Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad complete a full term in office.

Yesterday, TTF posted:

Azmin’s call (for Mahathir to remain a full term) ends weeks of speculation that he’s with Mahathir and no longer with Anwar.

Following a very public spat over a sex video scandal that went viral, Azmin has thrown several hints that Anwar’s days as PKR president were over, the latest being a Twitter message in which he insinuated that Anwar lacked majority support.

Current estimates suggest Azmin has a firm grip on PKR with a near 100 per cent chance of toppling Anwar in the event an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) is called.

Azmin’s call also means he does not agree that Mahathir needs to hand over power to Anwar when the time is right as agreed upon by key Pakatan Harapan leaders.

Anwar keeps insisting that the agreement was signed but stops short of revealing if it states that Mahathir needs to hand over power “after two years” or “before the full term is up.”

Anwar is doing precisely what he did in the months that culminated with the disclosure of fake Statutory Declarations (SDs) proving he did not command majority support in parliament.

Prior to the disclosure, both he and his wife repeatedly expressed confidence that Mahathir would hand over power when the time was right and gave the impression that he (Anwar) had the numbers.

However, little did anyone suspect that behind the scenes, Anwar’s men were using fake SDs to con Members of Parliament (MPs) into penning their support for his premiership by getting them to think that their respective team leaders were supportive of him.

The expose prompted 55 MPs to sign retraction SDs and caused almost 40 others to sign self-protection SDs on their own volition.

As the story goes, Anwar, who was supposed to have toppled Mahathir two days following the recent Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council meeting, failed to get his man to seek an audience from the Yang di-Pertuan Agong as planned.

Furious, he kept insisting he had the numbers and even told a press conference a day prior to the PKR retreat in Port Dickson that the majority in parliament supported him.

But his insinuation that Azmin needed to resign drew a bitchy response from the latter who more or less told him to fly kites.

Azmin has fired several salvos since then, the latest being a Twitter message in which he implied that Anwar did not enjoy majority support in PKR.

Anwar’s latest attempt at getting the KCP to seek disciplinary action against Azmin is yet another attempt at convincing PKR leaders he is in control.

According to records, PKR has over 200 branches (or cabang) all over the country with many in support of Azmin.

If indeed Anwar commands majority support, he should publish a minimum of 120 signatures to convince us that this isn’t yet another one of his “I have the numbers” ploy.
