Polls Show Support For Malaysian Opposition Leader
Opinion polls show most people believe Malaysian Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim did not commit sodomy against a young aide after a similar charge landed him in jail for six years before it was overturned.***** Even after making allowance for a substantial margin of error, these numbers are huge! What it clearly indicates is the level of distrust the average Malaysian has in the government of the day. These polls in fact question the integrity of our leaders and their propensity to play dirty when the chips are down.
A small survey by the independent Merdeka Centre research firm found just 6 per cent of respondents believed the allegations, and nearly 60 per cent viewed them as politically motivated.
A separate survey by independent news website Malaysiakini showed that 94.4 per cent believed the allegations were part of a political conspiracy against Anwar.
We should keep in mind that almost every top pemimpin of Umno from the PM down have denied complicity in this sodomy issue and have squarely put the blame on Anwar himself. Yet the majority of the population still believes that it is the PKR leader who is telling the truth! Speaks volumes of the faith the rakyat have in this kerajaan. Not a good sign for Umno.
