Malaysia’s Anwar said planning no-confidence vote

KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia opposition figure Anwar Ibrahim is gathering support to file a no-confidence vote against the government in six weeks, the Financial Times reported on Friday.

Anwar, who is fighting allegations of sodomy with a former aide, played down speculation that he would soon be formally charged.

“With all the evidence that is now before them, I don’t see any reason why the authorities should continue with these investigations of alleged sodomy,” Anwar was quoted as saying by Financial Times.

“In any other system where there is justice and fairness, the powers would have by now shut down the investigations and cleared my name.”

The former deputy premier has said the accusation was a political scheme aimed at halting the opposition’s rise. [more]
