KUALA LUMPUR, March 31 ― Pakatan Harapan (PH) will set up an independent election commission and abolish any legislation against “fake news”, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said today.
The PKR de facto leader expressed disgust at the Barisan Nasional (BN) government’s actions in bulldozing through the Election Commission’s (EC) redelineation report that was debated for only two hours in Parliament.
“This is not a proper and lawful redelineation exercise, but a blatant and unconstitutional act of gerrymandering,” Anwar said in a statement.
I find it significant that Anwar has now come out to make campaign statements. Perhaps Pakatan has assessed Mahathir has not been very effective in his messages.
For a start, Anwar is more believable and carry less baggage than Mahathir. Then the former PM has an embarrassing performance of now backtracking on all his previous PM policies - who the f**k will believe Mr Belakang Pusing?
