Anti-Hopping Law & Hypocrites

So, the sandiwara continues…When Bota assemblyman Nasarudin joins PKR, there were howls and calls for the immediate implementation of an anti-hopping law.

Leading the call was UMNO's strongman Muhyiddin Yassin and PBS president Joseph Pairin Kitingan. The latter was a victim when elected representatives from his party hopped to BN and brought down his administration.

The DAP and Pas today voiced their support for an anti-hopping law, but they said lawmakers who resign must be allowed to seek a fresh mandate. DAP has been quite consistent with their stand. Previously, the party had suffered from defections. Their stand is admirable.

However, there is a twist in Perak. It seems that the tide is flowing against PKR; which is still celebrating the defection of Nasarudin. UMNO is now trumpeting possible defections from two PKR exco in Perak to UMNO.

He gave a strong indication that the Barisan Nasional may soon wrest back control of the Perak state government from the Pakatan Rakyat. Abdullah responded in the affirmative when asked if there was any truth to the rumours that two PKR assemblymen in Perak would hop over to Umno soon.
