Malaysiakini - Ng's quit shocker, all is not well in Sarawak PKR.
Malaysiakini reported that Dominique Ng, the former Sarawak chief of PKR had been personally responsible for the registration of 13 PKR divisions in Sarawak, which has been touted by Anwar Ibrahim as his frontline State for 2013.
Apparently Ng has several more divisions waiting to be incorporated into the party.
Incidentally Ng holds one of PKR’s two seats in Sarawak - the other being Ngemah, who is being held by independent-turn-PKR assemblyperson Gabriel Adit.
Ng has just resigned from PKR supreme council. Adit expressed shock on hearing the news. He described Ng as ‘second to none’ in many aspects of the party affairs.
I suspect this might have been where Ng went wrong – he obtained the most number of votes in the 20-member supreme council at PKR party’s 2006 election.
Shades of Nallakarupan? That wouldn’t do lah!
Nalla was once a PKR VP who obtained the most number of votes for VP in the party election. In the following party election Anwar told him not to stand as VP - obviously worried Nalla might through his immense popularity deny someone contesting for the VP position from winning.
Alamak, what would you do if you were told not to stand for party election when you were virtually a shoo-in for one of the VP posts? Realising that refomasi actually stood for deformasi, Nalla left.
As for Ng's popularity and party (as well as State) vote-winning ability, true enough, he found himself in more or less in the same position as Nalla. It would appear he isn't wanted!
Anwar Ibrahim, the party’s de facto leader, took over Ng's position of state chief early this year. Hmmm, here's a bloke who doesn’t want to be the party’s president but yet he had to seize Dominique Ng’s position.
Then the Malaysiakini report added:
Ng, the only PKR candidate to manage to win the last state election, was said to be unhappy after he was replaced as state chief.
To add salt to injury, the latest announcement on the re-organisation of the party at national level [by the Great Man himself], excluded him as well as elected representative Adit from holding any significant party posts.
That’s PKR for you. Unless you are in Anwar’s 'inner group', you’ll end up like Nallakarupan and Dominique Ng. Oh BTW, what's that Penang PKR ADUN's name, the mamak who couldn't be DCM1 because he's not a Melayu.
Maybe PKR stands for Parti Ketuanan Rakan2 (ArnTua)?
Mind you, the party has been very brave in its recent Party disciplining - they sacked 16 people, 12 from Kedah and 4 from Sarawak. But no worry, the Kulim Wonder was not one of them - man man lai ;-)
It is now apparent that PKR is nothing more than Anwar Ibrahim's personal fiefdom, and he's not even a PKR party office holder - reformasi? wakakaka.
