They say, there are never permanent enemies in politics, and Kit Siang and Anwar are just that. With Kit Siang being announced as the candidate for Gelang Patah, what PR is telling Boo is that LKS has already agreed in the trade off between PKR and DAP.
Can You See It?
This would have been unheard of in the early nineties.
When back then, struggling to make an impact (and perhaps some will argue that they still do) DAP's Lim Kit Siang would often lock horns with Anwar Ibrahim. (Here is just one example of what Anwar and Kit Siang engaged in in 1993, and another referring to the same)
But today, these politicos are very different animals.
Kit Siang is often seen in DAP as the supremo (perhaps even higher than a 'tokong') and those who have crossed path with him has always emerged on the losing end. (here, Wee Choo Keong can attest to that having been sacked from DAP for not showing enough 'affection' to party leaders)
So why is it that the recent announcement of Kit Siang contesting in Gelang Patah is announced and endorsed by Anwar Ibrahim?
With Chua Jui Meng mounting a comeback in Johor (after being sidelined by MCA in the 2008 elections, in which as a result Chua Jui Meng instructed his division members to close their bilik gerakan early presumably to sabitage MCA), it is understood that Jui Meng himself wants in on the action should PR take the southern state. DAP's Boo Cheng Hau who is the state DAP leader has in recent weeks been engaged in a tit for tat with PKR's Jui Meng, accusing the latter of using 'black hand' (unseen influence by Party higher ups) in undermining Boo's campaign.
Clearly, all is not well in Pakatan and as GE13 draws nearer, more of this can be seen when whos who in their state begin to tussle for the much touted 'calon'ship.
