Anwar’s greatest fear is not Tun Mahathir, Mahyuddin Yassin or Daim. It is not Azmin Ali or any of the new breed of young politicians coming through the Pakatan Harapan ranks. Najib Razak, Zahid Hamidi or anyone else with “political” baggage in Umno (which in reality is really everybody in Umno!) are all eagerly waiting to do deals with Anwar Ibrahim to keep them out of Sungai Buloh. PAS are still adamant that the Royal Pardon for Anwar’s was not needed as the prosecution had never been able to produced the four independent witnesses needed to verify the Sodomy One and Two convictions! Nor is Anwar fearful of any faction within PKR that are working to oust him out of PKR.
Anwar is aware that the tide is turning as public sentiments turn against him.
KUALA LUMPUR: Anwar Ibrahim agrees that it is the people who will decide on Malaysia’s next leader.
“Right now, yes. the arrangement is that I`ll become Prime Minister next.
But you are right, ultimately the people will decide,” he said when asked
about his arrangement with Dr Mahathir by CNN International during the CNN Talk Asia programme aired last night.
The whispers heard among Pakatan Harapan partners of how Anwar Ibrahim had “managed” the appointments of PKR leadership positions is now part and parcel of political folk lore among politicians in Malaysia and only confirmed what they all already knew… that PKR and the Mob from Istana Segambut were one and the same thing. They all know that he will do the same when he is the PM……choosing those whom he likes, those who blindly follow him and those who will not be too much of a challenge to his position in PKR and Pakatan Harapan.
But for Anwar all these negatives can be addressed once the immediate danger is first neutralized. There is clear and present danger elsewhere closer to home….much to close for comfort
His greatest fear today is Azizah who is next in line and unlikely to abdicate should she gets the opportunity to be PM. Enough said.
