Anwar Says Malaysia Government To Fall By Tuesday

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim said Wednesday he will topple Malaysia's government by early next week despite a trip abroad by ruling coalition lawmakers that he claims is aimed at thwarting his plans.

The three-party opposition alliance can seize power if at least 30 members of Parliament defect from the National Front coalition, and Anwar said he would fly overseas if necessary to meet with lawmakers he hopes to lure to his side.

He has vowed for several months to take power by Sept. 16.

About 50 National Front lawmakers left for a farming study tour in Taiwan earlier this week amid opposition accusations that coalition leaders had sent them there to keep them away from Anwar and to dissuade some of them from defecting.

Anwar claims to have made tacit pacts with dozens of lawmakers in recent months, and insisted that he was still "very much" on track for his target date of next Tuesday.

"We're working on it," Anwar told reporters. "There are technical problems because (the lawmakers) have been shipped away. ... God-willing, it will (still) happen. If need be, I will fly to Taipei."

The government has denied the tour is politically motivated.

Anwar, who is battling a charge that he sodomized his 23-year-old former male aide, made the comments after a Sessions Court delayed a preliminary hearing for his sodomy trial.

Government prosecutors said Wednesday they wanted to transfer the case to a higher court because it had attracted widespread interest, including from international observers.

Anwar's lawyers objected, saying the current judge was sufficiently qualified. The court will hear formal arguments from both sides Sept. 24 before making a decision.

Anwar is charged with allegedly sodomizing Saiful Bukhari Azlan — the second such accusation in a decade for the former deputy premier, who was ousted in 1998 amid charges that he sodomized his family driver. A court overturned that sodomy conviction in 2004.

Anwar reiterated Wednesday the latest charge was "treacherous and malicious," and accused the prosecution of having "no intention to proceed except with the instructions from their political masters." The government has denied any conspiracy against Anwar.

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has pledged to foil Anwar's attempt to unseat the National Front, which has governed Malaysia for 51 years but suffered its worst electoral result ever in March national polls.

The National Front won 140 seats in the 222-member Parliament, losing its two-thirds majority for the first time since 1969.

Anwar won a by-election last month that enabled him to re-enter Parliament and to become prime minister if his alliance takes power. (International Herald Tribune)

Kick the bastards out!
Democratic? What rubbish! If we had a real Democracy, we won't have the ISA, we won't have the PM's office controlling the Judiciary, Police & ACA. Democratic to wait for the next GE...ya rite!
Malaysia does not practice REAL why shouldn't DSAI form the next Govt. if he has enough MPs & if our Agong agrees?!
Yes, I've heard the same thing. They were given RM50,000 also. Plus, since they were going on an Agricultural study tour, how come they took their Golf Bags with them?!
Please don't be so stupid, we all know what UMNO is capable of. RM50,000 to each MP is no problem. If they don't take it from the Tax Payers, they can take it from Petronas!

Misi Terdesak..!! PKR hantar 4 wakil ke Taiwan buru MP BN

PKR akan menghantar empat wakil ke Taiwan dalam usaha ‘memburu’ ahli-ahli Parlimen Barisan Nasional (BN) supaya melompat parti bagi membentuk kerajaan baru persekutuan menjelang Selasa ini.

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), salah satu komponen Pakatan Rakyat, akan menghantar empat pemimpinnya ke Taiwan bagi menemui ahli-ahli Parlimen BN di sana.

Perkara itu disahkan oleh Pengarah Strategi PKR, Saifuddin Nasution ketika dihubungi sebentar tadi.

Mereka dijadual berlepas ke Taiwan petang ini.

Saifuddin bersama Naib Presiden PKR, Dr. Lee Boon Chye; Ketua Penerangannya, Tian Chua dan Timbalan Pengarah Pilihan Raya PKR, Fuziah Salleh akan berlepas ke Taiwan bagi meneruskan misi mereka.

“Ya memang betul kita akan ke sana (Taiwan),” kata Saifuddin yang juga anggota Dewan Rakyat.

Dalam pada itu, Pengerusi Kelab Penyokong-Penyokong Barisan Nasional (BN-BBC), Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing yang kini mengetuai rombongan 49 Ahli Parlimen BN ke Taiwan berkata, beliau tidak risau dengan kedatangan pemimpin-pemimpin PKR , yang dikatakan bertujuan untuk ‘memburu’ dan ‘memujuk’ mereka.

“Apa nak risau…biarlah mereka datang. Negara ini (Taiwan) bebas untuk menerima kedatangan mereka,” kata beliau kepada mStar Online.

Sambil mengakui menyedari kedatangan empat pemimpin PKR itu, beliau menegaskan: “Datanglah… kita semua boleh bersalam dengan mereka.”

“Saya ada dengar sebelum ini, mereka (PKR) kata, mereka sudah ada sembilan nama Ahli Parlimen (BN), yang berada dalam rombongan kami, (kononnya) akan menyertai mereka.

“Kalau betul ada, saya harap sayalah orang pertama yang akan mereka memburu kerana mereka juga mendakwa saya sudah beberapa kali buat perjumpaan sulit dengan (Datuk Seri) Anwar (Ibrahim),” katanya.

Kemarin, Anwar, Ketua Umum Pakatan Rakyat berkata, beliau akan ke Taiwan, jika perlu, untuk berjumpa dengan 49 Ahli Parlimen BN yang melakukan lawatan sambil belajar ke negara itu.

Kata Anwar, beliau tidak putus hubungan dengan ahli-ahli Parlimen berkenaan dan sanggup ke pergi ke negara itu jika mereka ingin berjumpa dan berbincang dengannya.

“(Tarikh) 16 Sept akan adalah suatu realiti. Saya telah berjumpa dengan semua pemimpin Pakatan dan kami membincangkan perkara itu secara terperinci, dan memanglah kami menghadapi beberapa masalah teknikal apabila 49 Ahli Parlimen itu dihantar ke luar negara,” katanya.

Kumpulan BN-BBC akan pulang ke tanah air pada 17 atau 18 September ini.

Bagaimanapun kelmarin Anwar memberitahu bahawa jika mereka menghadapi masalah untuk menubuhkan kerajaan baru menjelang 16 September, mereka akan cuba merealisasikan sasaran tersebut pada 20 September.

Namun apa yang menarik, salah seorang orang kuat PAS yang selama ini memang terkenal sebagai Pengarah Pilihan Raya PAS kerana kepakarannya dalam strategi pilihan raya, Datuk Mustafa Ali tidak yakin Anwar mampu menawan Putrajaya pada 16 September ini.

Ini berdasarkan kenyataannya bahawa , setahu beliau PKR tidak pernah merujuk secara rasmi mengenai cadangan pembentukan kerajaan baru dengan PAS dan dengan itu menyebabkan pemimpin parti itu tidak membincangkan isu itu dalam mana-mana mesyuarat.

Kenyataan beliau itu yang juga Pesuruhjaya PAS Terengganu adalah senada dengan Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang bahawa sehingga kini beliau tidak pernah melihat senarai nama Ahli Parlimen BN yang akan melompat parti menyertai pakatan pembangkang.

“Saya kata tidak akan berlaku. Bila tiba 16 September ini boleh tengok saya betul atau dia betul,” kata Mustafa merujuk kepada usaha Anwar hendak membentuk kerajaan baru pada 16 September.

Berdasarkan maklumat dan rentetan ’menawan Putrajaya 16 September’ ini, umum mengetahui bahawa usaha Anwar ini hanya didokong oleh kumpulan Erdogan dalam PAS yang diketuai oleh Naib Presidennya, Husam Musa.

Menghurai lebih lanjut, Mustafa Ali berkata beliau tidak nampak bagaimana sebegitu ramai Ahli parlimen BN akan menyertai pembangkang.

Alasan beliau ialah biasanya pembangkang yang akan melompat menyertai kerajaan dan adalah sesuatu yang sukar diterima pihak kerajaan akan melompat ke pembangkang.
