Today I'll do a second post which has been triggered by what I have read at Malaysia-Today, namely:
(a) RPK's Special Report Is Azmin Ali making his move or is this Sodomy 3?
(b) Free Malaysia Today's A move in PKR to oust Anwar’s dynasty?
|Puteri Reformasi Gunung Ledang|
In a previous post titled Puteri Gunung Ledang's 8th condition?
, my take on Malay unity, I had written of PKR's internal strife which started long ago. For my extracts to follow, I'll only start off from the last PKR party polls when we witnessed questionable and still unanswered party election process (reformasi my bloody foot!), as follows:
Since its last party elections, PKR in reality has been a house divided, very very much divided. Jonson Chong (admittedly not a Malay-Muslim) like Zaid Ibrahim left PKR in frustration over the alleged dodgy-ness in the party election process, and in parting, advised Dr Wan Azizah:
"If the president still does not take some serious action to remedy this situation, then I'm afraid the party’s days may be numbered with or without a new line-up. And let me unequivocally state that I am not addressing the de facto leader on this matter because I no longer recognize the validity of that position."
That PKR internal rivalry hasn't ended where we currently hear of Team A (headed by Azmin Ali and 101% back by Anwar Ibrahim – the team comprises PKR’s ‘inner coterie’) in acrimonious rivalry with Team W (headed by Wan Azizah – the team has Nurul, Khalid Ibrahim, Faekah Husin, etc).
Where’s the party unity, let alone Malay unity?
If you recall what happened before Zaid Ibrahim finally threw in the towel in exasperation, then you’d understand the vipers’ nest that’s PKR. If you can’t, then feel free to read my posts:
In the last post I wrote:
When he was in PKR at the time leading to the party polls (before he tossed his hat into the election ring) Zaid Ibrahim was criticized for being erratic because one moment he said he would not challenge the deputy presidential post IF (initially) Nurul Izaah took up the challenge*, then IF (subsequently) Khalid Ibrahim did so, and the next (when both didn't he took up the challenge.
* Azmin Ali went into a panicky tizzy when Nurul casually mentioned her interests, and ‘advised’ Nurul against it because people would talk. Bet you Anwar had a few private words with Nurul
The standard anwaristas' cries against Zaid Ibrahim were his inconsistencies (in supporting Nurul, then Khalid, before standing as a candidate himself), and their accusations unimaginatively attacked Zaid for his lust for power.
But I didn't see any inconsistency in Zaid’s manoeuvrings. In fact there was a very consistent objective in his support for firstly, Nurul, and subsequently for Khalid Ibrahim, before he personally challenged Azmin Ali in the party election.
That objective was to prevent Azmin Ali from coasting home on an Anwar-provided free ticket into the deputy president post. He wanted Azmin Ali stopped!
Now, on to RPK's question as reported by FMT:
