Anwar ready to meet Agong with enough MP support
MACC moves by Latheefa to pile up more charges against Zahid up to 87, 41 AMLA cases, double jeopardy charge against Riza Aziz and failing AG cases on the SRC trial and postponement of 1MDB case against Najib is building up a perception in public that it is all political persecution.
Another Brick in the Wall
UMNO Veteran Club Secretary General, Datuk Mustapha Yaakub posted in his Facebook yesterday evening. He heard Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim is short by 4 seats and sufficient to pressure Tun Dr Mahathir to resign in the current Parliamentary session.
In another posting, he wrote without referring to anyone, though he hated a person for destroying the Malays, he wish he die in Iman and Allah forgive his sins.
This morning a source close to Dato Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi confidently claim he is short by 3 seats. When asked if Zahid signed any Statutory Declaration to support as claimed by most political columnist, he gave an emphatic, NO!
Except perhaps Dato Nazri Aziz, he affirmed UMNO is neither supporting Anwar nor Mahathir and will remain steadfast with the opposition coalition of BN and ummah unity with PAS.
This evening an important source of information claimed Anwar has the number and is ready to meet the Seri Paduka Baginda Yang DiPertuan Agong with the Statutory Declarations of MPs already signed.
When asked in jest will it be on September 16th, the source said this is for real. It is only a matter of when he will seek the audience with Agong?
So everyone read Zahid wrongly?
More so, the analysis of most University lecturers tend to be dependent on official statements and media reports. Its like forecasting share price with last years results.
Zahid pro-Anwar or pro-Najib?
The source confidently said Mahathir’s reading is right. Though Zahid is a long time friend of Anwar, his loyalty is to Najib.
He puts it crudely, “Friendship aside, orang sembahyang tidak boleh sokong orang semburit.”
The source close to Zahid confirmed the same information.
Among the reasons cited to speculate Zahid remained loyal to Anwar was that he was never adversarial towards Anwar and PKR and even extended help. Upon release from prison, Zahid gave Anwar the benefit of the doubt and believed he would have repented this time.
However, Zahid changed his view after Anwar’s trip to Turkey in July 2018 which was reported by the media for spinal surgery and Lim Kit Siang came to visit Anwar.
He only said Anwar did not change.
Immediately upon winning the UMNO Presidency, Zahid decided the way forward for UMNO was to strengthen itself by befriending PAS.
During the garden leave, Zahid had been instrumental in forging the cooperation into a cohesive understanding from the leadership to reach the grassroot level.
