Saw this interesting story by
I actually first read about Pakatan replacing Anwar as their number one choice with Tengku Razaleigh in NST a few weeks ago. However, I was then skeptical about the story as the person quoted was that ex-PKR Bayan Baru MP Zahrain Mohamed Hashim.
But then again, the trees would not be swaying if there is no wind, isn't it?
Now that talks about Anwar being replaced by Pakatan as their number one man is gaining momentum, maybe it's worth a bit to look at how things going to be between those who support Anwar and those who wanted him replaced.
At one corner will be the Pas' Anwarinas, DAP's Lim family and cronies and of course Anwar's party office bearing wife and children as well as most of the PKR's high council.
On the other corner should be the Pas' ulama faction including those from the Syura Council, DAP rebels with the most prominent being Karpal Singh who despite insisting that Anwar will be PM knows for certain about Anwar's weaknesses for anything cute and the few PKR independent minded individuals worried over the party's future due to the grip of Anwar's ass-lickers (figuratively...I think) led by deputy president Azmin Ali.
Personally, I don't think the anti-Anwar side will win....at least until the election is over.
They were a bit too late in initiating the move against Anwar and the forces against them are already too powerful within Pakatan. The opposition coalition will have no choice but to go on with Anwar as their leader into the election which I believe will be held within five weeks from now.
They will have to wait until after the election to really make their moves so as not to cause serious damage to their electoral chances.
But then again, with the chances of Pakatan taking over Putrajaya seem to be diminishing by the day, the whole thing doesn't seems to really matter anyway, isn't it?
