Extracts from Free Malaysia Today's Anwar-Shafie ‘tie-up’ against Amans?
PKR ..... has now eagerly accepted an invitation from the godfather of the Suluk Filipinos (Shafie Apdal) to make a common cause in Sabah against the Aman brothers.
It’s not surprising that PKR has no qualms about walking on the wild side of politics in Sabah.
It is an open secret in the state that Opposition Leader and de facto PKR chief Anwar Ibrahim was among the chief architects responsible for placing illegal immigrants, mainly drawn from Suluk Filipinos, on the electoral rolls.
He was then in the Barisan Nasional government as deputy prime minister and finance minister.
Anwar’s shady past in Sabah has caught up with him in the present to haunt his future.
And why should be surprised when this man was also responsible for PBS being ousted from rule when the party just won the 1994 State election, thanks to DPM Anwar Ibrahim's Machiavellian frogological manipulations. He earned his UMNO stripes by succeeding infamously in subverting the rakyat's democratic choices.
Most of the Sabah PKR members have fled en masse to the State Reform Party (STAR) led by Jeffrey Kitingan who was PKR vice-president until January last year.
PKR has since pledged, in an act of political suicide, that illegal immigrants in Sabah would all be given permanent residency (PR) status should the opposition alliance seize the reins of power in the state.
The 2nd paragraph worries me for many reasons, chiefly a betrayal of the Sabahans and the DAP. Is it true? I hope not.
Mind, I won't be surprised if it is. It'll then be merely another incident of PKR opening up kang kang to prostitute away (again) its political principles, or whatever little is left of that.
