Anwar slammed over ‘cover-up’

(The Star) – MCA Youth took a swipe at PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for allegedly covering up the party youth chief Shamsul Iskandar Akin’s recent gaffe at the PKR Youth Congress in Johor.

Anwar’s attempt to cover up for Shamsul by saying the remark did not reflect a PKR or Pakatan Rakyat agenda was pitiful, said the youth wing’s secretary-general Datuk Chai Kim Sen.

On Friday, Shamsul had in his speech challenged Umno to make changes to the Federal Constitution to stipulate that only Malays can be prime minister.

He said Umno should do this to prove its claim of being a party that championed Malay rights.

Chai said Anwar was using a “good cop, bad cop” tactic in trying to keep both the Malays and non-Malays happy.

“Knowing that Shamsul’s remarks will make non-Malay voters unhappy, he quickly tried to fix things up by saying that it is not a PKR or Pakatan agenda,” he said.
