Anwar Ibrahim: Merdeka rakyat negara perkasa

Tarikh 31 Ogos merupakan satu tarikh keramat bagi seluruh rakyat Malaysia. Ia menandakan kita merdeka dari penjajahan yang sudah sekian lama menzalimi serta menindas. Beberapa hari lagi maka genap 51 tahun kita merdeka, 51 tahun sudah negara tercinta ini bebas dari penjajahan yang menindas. Namun kita melihat selepas 51 tahun keadaan menjadi lebih buruk. Pengangguran bertambah berkali-kali ganda, inflasi berada di paras tertinggi dalam sejarah yang mengakibatkan kenaikan harga barang secara mendadak, manakala kerajaan tidak mampu untuk menurunkan harga minyak ke paras yang munasabah bagi mengurangkan beban rakyat.

Kerajaan Barisan Nasional yang diketuai UMNO sudah tempang dan gagal memenuhi hasrat rakyat yang inginkan perubahan demi kehidupan yang lebih baik, makmur, harmoni dan adil. Akan tetapi kita kesal demi menggelincirkan proses perubahan, Barisan Nasional sanggup untuk menggunakan politik fitnah dan adu domba.

Saya menyeru penduduk Permatang Pauh agar bersama-sama menolak segala penipuan dan kezaliman yang dilakukan oleh Umno dan Barisan Nasional. Mari kita kuatkan iltizam serta perkukuh tekad perjuangan di dalam kita melawan fitnah serta perancangan jahat Barisan Nasional yang diketuai UMNO.

Marilah kita merdeka dari politik fitnah dan adu domba ini. Teladan yang ditunjukkan oleh Nabi Muhammad S.A.W dan anbiya lainnya seharusnya dijadikan iktibar. Saya menyeru kepada mereka yang terbabit supaya jangan menghina Syariah demi kepentingan politik. Kemukakan bukti dan saksi di Mahkamah Syariah bukannya bersumpah demi memenuhi nafsu politik semata!

26 Ogos 2008, undilah saya demi untuk keluar dari kesengsaraan hidup, rasuah dan kerencatan ekonomi. Bersempena bulan Merdeka ini marilah kita bersama-sama di Permatang Pauh ini mendakap semangat merdeka yang sebenarnya. Kita sampaikan kepada rakyat sudah tiba masanya untuk merdeka dari kesengsaraan hidup, merdeka dari rasuah dan merdeka dari keadaan ekonomi yang lembap. Marilah kita Memerdekakan Rakyat! Demi Memerdekakan Negara!

Tough Call For BN Because Of “Sympathy Factor”

By Zuraida Abdul Rahman

BUKIT MERTAJAM, Aug 6 (Bernama) — Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR)’s victory in the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat in the 1999 general election was said to be buoyed by sympathy votes over the expulsion of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from Umno and the government a year earlier.

Voters’ confusion and the sympathy factor enabled his wife, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail who headed the then Parti Keadilan Nasional (now PKR) to win the seat by beating Datuk Seri Dr Ibrahim Saad of Barisan Nasional (BN) by a 9,077-vote majority.

In the 2004 general election, BN was returned to power by a landslide majority, defeating all Keadilan’s candidates except for Wan Azizah who retained Permatang Pauh.

Sympathy votes were again cited as the reason for her victory as Anwar was then serving a six-year jail sentence on four counts of corruption. However, her majority dropped to 590 votes.

In the March 8 general election, Wan Azizah defended her seat with 13,398 votes’ majority.

She polled 30,348 votes to beat Datuk Pirdaus Ismail of BN.

Four months later, she vacated her seat to make way for Anwar to contest in a by-election, for which nomination was fixed for Aug 16 and polling for Aug 26.

Again, the sympathy factor looms large as Anwar is facing another sodomy allegation, for what is said to be a repeat of the scenario in 1999. […]

MORE than 2,000 people, led by former MCA Wanita leader Datin Paduka Dr Tan Yee Kew, joined Parti Keadilan Rakyat today. Tan handed over the application forms of 2,079 people from various races.

About 1,100 of them are Chinese and most are believed to be former MCA members who had followed Tan out of the party.

However only about 1,700 of them were present at the function at the Klang Executive Club.

The forms were received by PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and deputy president Dr Syed Husin Ali.

PKR de-facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim were also seen.

In her speech, Tan described the day as a historic one and as the start of her quest to better serve the nation under the PKR banner.
