Pribumi told PKR to FO on Anwar-as-Pakatan-PM issue

From MM Online about the Mahathir versus Anwar for PM issue (extracts):

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec 29— Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s freedom and political future cannot be Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) main agenda, Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) has said.

PPBM also said that PKR had no right to dictate terms on how the PH coalition is run, or who should be its prime minister candidate should they win the next general election.

“This is the PH coalition, everyone has to discuss and arrive at a decision, not just PKR dictating terms on how the coalition is run.

“We do not want PH to be seen as just a coalition for Anwar,” PPBM supreme council member Datuk Rais Hussin Mohamed Ariff told Malay Mail when contacted.

He was responding to a Malaysiakini report which stated that PKR would only agree with PH’s suggestion to name Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail as PM and deputy prime minister candidates if certain conditions were met.

Quoting sources, the report said that PKR’s political bureau wanted an assurance that Dr Mahathir would push to campaign for Anwar’s release from prison.

They also wanted the PH chairman to promise that he would only be an interim prime minister until Anwar can take over.

Rais Hussein tok-kok because he is deliberately ignoring PKR's raison d'être as a political party, namely, (initially to free Anwar from prison, still is) and to make him the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

raison d'être means the most important reason or purpose for someone or something's existence, that is, PKR's existence

Azmin and gang might have since changed their minds so consider them as exceptions, wakakaka.

In saying ... PKR had no right to dictate terms on how the PH coalition is run, or who should be its prime minister candidate should they win the next general election.

Rais Hussein forgets:

(a) his racist party Pribumi (full of Perkasa and Mahathir's people and the former EC Commissioner as a VP) is a Johnny-come-lately (a newbie) in Pakatan and 

(b) PKR as one of the original Pakatan member, has every right to propose and insist on its political interests.

Rais has the audacity, temerity and brazenness to virtually tell PKR to STFU. Rais Hussein is obviously insistent that Pakatan accepts Mahathir as its PM-designate. Hasn't he done exactly what he condemned PKR for? 

What brazen double standards.

Pakatan's new leaders?  


  1. In business its called a Reverse takeover.
    The original Brand Name ( Pakatan) is maintained , but a totally different new entity becomes the new management.
    Unfortunately for PKR , Anwar is actually in prison, and cannot stand for office for many more years after release, unless pardoned.
    This is a trap which the Mahathir camp is setting, possibly with Azmin agreement.

    1. Pribumi has no asset other than 1 seat in Pagoh and the dubious reputation of Mahathir, whereas PKR (minus Azmin and gang) has more.

      DAP is playing a King-maker's game in this tussle, where LKS obviously wants Mahathir (other factions in DAP do not)

    2. i think what rais said do make sense n reasonable from a coalition pov.

    3. In business, 'goodwill' is also a form of 'assets'. I would value TDM worth at least up to 20% - 30% of his former standing

  2. Why must PKR always insist that their own PM candidate must,and must only be Anwar.Why cannot it be anybody else?Is PKR so pok-kai of good candidates,that Anwar,a convicted felon can be their only available candidate?

    Just look at the US of A,the "land of the free".With the election of pariah horndog Donald Trump,the land of the free have become the "land of the oppressed".Everything have come under attack by pariah horndog Donald Trump's WH.The press,free speech,Hispanics,African Americans,FBI,CIA and even the justice department have not been spared.

    When you have a rapist,statutory rapist,sexual predator and grab them by the pussies pariah horndog as POTUS, what do one expect?The US of A have become a the world's newest member of the "Banana Republic".Horndog Donald Trump have become America's and the Republican party's worse nightmare.

    1. as I wrote, PKR's raison d'être as a political party is (initially to free Anwar from prison, still is) to make him the Prime Minister of Malaysia.

  3. There is no need to pull in LKS and DAP names in this king-maker's equation.
    The fuckall PPBM and PKR can fight until kingdom come.
    This PPBM so-called spokesperson agreed with Hadi's all-Malay Cabinet and stated in no uncertain terms the PM-must-be-Malay policy, when he has no need to say anything.
    It is better to say nothing then to say something stupid that invites heaps of scorn, like they sing in the song.



    Kenyataan saudara Rais Ahli Majlis Tertinggi PPBM yang mengatakan bahawa "Isu Anwar bukanlah Keutamaan" PH adalah seupama *'Belanda mendapat Tanah'*.

    Pembentukkan PH adalah hasil daripada perjuangan rakyat di bawah kepimpinan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim apabila ketidakadilan berlaku terhadap beliau dan rakyat kebanyakkan. Bermula dengan gerakan *Reformasi* yang dicetuskan oleh Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dengan dokongan pimpinan-pimpinan hebat seperti Allahyarham Datuk Fadzil Nor, Allahyarham Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz dan mendiang Karpal Singh dan pimpinan-pimpinan NGO lain.

    Kebangkitan rakyat disebabkan penolakkan mereka terhadap ketidakadilan, salahguna kuasa dan keruntuhan institusi Demokrasi seperti institusi kehakiman, polis dan lain-lain.

    Hak-hak asasi manusia rakyat kebanyakkan dinafikan. Ramai yang ditahan tanpa bicara dan tercerdera dalam mempertahankan hak mereka.

    Keyakinan rakyat memperjuang agenda reformasi disebabkan kepimpinan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan rakan-rakan seperjuangan yang lain.

    Pendakwaan dan pemenjaraan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim ialah manifestasi ketidakadilan rejim kerajaan sekarang dan institusi-institusi berkaitan yang perlu diganti dan direform.

    Perjuangan menuntut *Keadilan (Justice)* dan *Perubahan Demokratik (Democratic Reform)* sentiasa menjadi tonggak utama perjuangan rakyat dan Isu Anwar Ibrahim sentiasa menjadi keutamaan dan mendapat Konsensus semua pihak yang bersama-sama berjuang seawal 1998.

    Malah yang lebih penting lagi Anwar Ibrahim sentiasa menjadi pemimpin 'Penyatu' kepada kesemua kepelbagaiaan jalur warna perjuangan rakyat. Adalah menjadi agenda utama pihak lawan seperti UMNO/BN untuk tidak menjadikan isu Anwar Ibrahim sebagai isu utama sehingga terdesak memenjarakan beliau. UMNO/BN sedar Anwar Ibrahim perlu dipisahkan daripada PH untuk melemahkan PH. Mungkin Rais gagal memahami isu ini kerana baru bersama-sama menyertai perjuangan rakyat yang mungkin asing kepada beliau.

    Kes Anwar Ibrahim dikritik hebat oleh badan-badan wibawa dunia atas alasan beliau tidak diberi Perbicaraan Adil. PERBICARAAN ADIL adalah merupakan prinsip utama sistem Demokrasi di dunia dan prinsip utama pembinaan Negara Hukum.

    Mungkin yang membezakan perjuangan KEADILAN dan apa yang difahami oleh Rais ialah Perubahan Demokratik di bawah pimpinan Anwar Ibrahim dan perjuangan semata-mata untuk mengganti PM sekarang tanpa memberi keutamaan isu Keadilan dan Perubahan Demokratik.

    Saya ingin ingatkan kepada Rais bahawa "Dragon Comes in many forms and the Warriors who rise to meet them have many faces". Ada beza di antara Perubahan Pimpinan Semata-mata dengan Perjuangan MENUNTUT KEADILAN DAN PERUBAHAN DEMOKRATIK.

    Pepatah Melayu sering mengingatkan adab orang Melayu agar tidak menjadi seeprti 'Belanda Yang mendapat tanah' yang bukan sahaja lupa budi orang memberi ruang tanah tersebut malah menjajah pemilik asal tanah tersebut.
