Wan Azizah snookered Mahathir good and proper
The minute they announced they were going to get one million signatures for the Citizens’ Declaration Wan Azizah knew they were doomed to fail. That would have been impossible and to put this exercise under two morons by the name of Syed Akbar Ali and Khairuddin Abu Hassan is like asking Jonah to sail the ship. And what is most ironical is the fact that Mahathir wants to take control of PKR that was originally set up as an anti-Mahathir platform and that he now wants to become its de facto leader with Azmin as his proxy.
THE CORRIDORS OF POWER
Raja Petra Kamarudin
In my previous articles (Azmin to be brought down before 2018, Azmin Ali’s triple-A rating and When you put a moron in charge of 1 million signatures) we raised a few issues. The main issues were that Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali has made a secret pact with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Anwar Ibrahim is not happy with that.
And that was the reason for Anwar’s letter from prison (READ HERE) and also the reason for the letters below (which are as damaging as Anwar’s letter from prison).
Because of what is seen as Azmin’s backstabbing and treacherous act, he has to be ousted. So the Kajang Move 2.0 plan to oust Azmin has been launched and is being masterminded by Rafizi Ramli, the mastermind of Kajang Move 1.0.
And that was why Rafizi revealed his ‘secret’ regarding corruption in Selangor that not only involves money but women as well. And in response to that revelation, party president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has asked Rafizi to lodge a report with the MACC, which, according to Wan Azizah, Rafizi is going to do on Monday, 30 May 2016.
Wan Azizah appears to be playing a very clever political game and is not as dumb as many people are saying. While Azmin may have entered into a secret pact with Mahathir to take control of PKR — with him as the new President, of course — Wan Azizah is countering Mahathir’s and Azmin’s move with moves of her own.
For example, Wan Azizah very cleverly distanced herself from the Save Malaysia campaign and the Citizens’ Declaration. She did not attend its launch or any of its functions and neither did she express support for the movement. She just maintained what some would call an elegant silence.
The minute they announced they were going to get one million signatures for the Citizens’ Declaration Wan Azizah knew they were doomed to fail. That would have been impossible and to put this exercise under two morons by the name of Syed Akbar Ali and Khairuddin Abu Hassan is like asking Jonah to sail the ship.
What was even more interesting is that instead of putting Azmin’s boys in charge of gathering those one million signatures they put Wan Azizah’s boy in charge. And Wan Azizah’s boy who they put in charge of gathering the one million signatures was Badrul Hisham Shaharin a.k.a. Chegubard, who is married to Anwar’s niece.
That is the height of stupidity. Of all people they put Wan Azizah’s Chegubard in charge of this exercise. So all Wan Azizah had to do was to keep quiet and let them get on with it. And when they fell far short of the one million signatures they were forced to resort to fraud to meet their target.
Once they announced that they had obtained more than one million signatures, Wan Azizah asked Chegubard to spring the surprise. And he did this by getting the person who supplied the almost one million signatures to sign a Statutory Declaration admitting that the signatures were obtained through fraud and deception.
Khairuddin, who was caught with his pants down, was so angry that he accused Chegubard of trying to sabotage the Citizens’ Declaration (Khairuddin: Chegubard trying to derail Citizens’ Declaration movement).
So it looks like Wan Azizah read and anticipated Mahathir’s every move and she snookered Mahathir good and proper with moves of her own. And the latest that I heard is that Azmin is so angry he is sulking and refuses to help in the Sungai Besar by-election. Wan Azizah has rejected Azmin’s idea that PKR should contest Sungai Besar and she has put her foot down and insisted that Amanah be given that seat.
It is important to Mahathir that Umno loses both Kuala Kangsar and Sungai Besar so that he can prove that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak no longer has support and should be forced to resign. If Umno wins those seats then Mahathir’s game plan would fail.
The only way Umno can lose would be if it were a straight fight (which is what Mahathir and Azmin want). With a three-corner fight consisting of Umno, PAS and Amanah, the opposition is going to lose and the pressure on Najib would be off.
Nothing seems to be working out the way Mahathir planned. If the Kajang Move 2.0 succeeds then Mahathir’s plan to take control of PKR with Azmin as the new party president and his proxy would fail. If Umno wins Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar because of three-corner contests then Mahathir’s plan to use this to force Najib to resign also fails.
What is most ironical is the fact that Mahathir wants to take control of a party that was originally set up as an anti-Mahathir platform and that he now wants to become its de facto leader with Azmin as his proxy.
If His Majesty the Agong refuses to grant Mahathir an audience because the so-called 1.2 million signatures are fraudulent then the Save Malaysia campaign and the Citizens’ Declaration spectacularly crashes and burns.
And what adds insult to injury is that Wan Azizah was the one who torpedoed Mahathir’s Save Malaysia campaign and the Citizens’ Declaration and at the same time blocked Mahathir’s move to use Azmin to take control of PKR and make it his proxy party to bring down Umno and Barisan Nasional.
So do not underestimate that quiet woman with the Japanese fan. Wan Azizah just defeated Mahathir with Bamboo Kung Fu, which is fought with using a Japanese fan to cut your opponent’s throat, just like how Wan Azizah cut Mahathir’s throat.
