Malaysiakini Pakatan en route to victory or disaster?
Zaid Ibrahim in identifying Pakatan Rakyat’s several weaknesses and problems proposed Pakatan work together with Ku Li (Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah).
Zaid said Ku Li is reform-driven.
Malaysiakini reported: But in order for this to happen, he said, Pakatan's larger-than-life leader Anwar Ibrahim would have to 'sacrifice'.
Sacrifice? But how, what, when …….. etc?
Using a soccer analogy, Zaid added: "Pakatan needs a few more strikers than what it already has to strengthen the team. Ku Li (Razaleigh) is an old timer, but he has integrity and a contemporary political outlook."
He said Razaleigh does not have to switch parties to do this but could work together in terms of holding political rallies and campaigns.
"I am aware that he still harbours the dream of rehabilitating Umno, to revive the original Umno which is dead (and now a tool for party cronies with problems of corruption and money politics).
"For me, there is nothing wrong in cooperating as we both want to initiate changes towards establishing a clean, efficient and corrupt-free system of governance," he added.
Using Ku Li from UMNO as a 'striker' for Pakatan?
Is this another ‘Malay unity’ proposal, this time by stealth?
