KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s targeted date of Sept 16 to capture the Government may not be achieved due to anticipated problems delaying the transition of power.
“After discussing with PAS and DAP, the date can be postponed even though our target was Sept 16 previously.
“However, I believe the present Government will find it difficult to quell the uproar of the rakyat,” Anwar said during his speech after a solat tawarikh and hajat ceremony at his home here last night. [more]

IPOH: The Pas leadership came under attack yesterday for putting Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and its Pakatan Rakyat partners above the party’s own interests.
Several delegates at the 238-member Pas youth assembly did not mince their words when they blamed the party leadership for paying too much attention to Anwar and his political agenda.
They accused party leaders of championing Anwar’s cause for political mileage and to boost their own popularity with the masses.
Terengganu delegate Wan Khairy Wan Abdullah set the ball rolling when he questioned why Pas leaders were obsessed with Anwar.
He then delivered a short history lesson, reminding party members that it was Pas which had been supportive of his activist agenda before his entry into politics.
“But what did he do in the end? He dumped us and joined Umno,” he said to restless murmurings from the floor.
He said despite this, party leaders obviously had not learnt their lesson. Wan Khairy said Pas now had to take a backseat when it came to ties within Pakatan Rakyat. [more]

IPOH: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is the people’s ticket to a new Federal Government, DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng said.
Lim, who is also Penang Chief Minister, said Anwar’s return to Parliament after he wins the Permatang Pauh by-election would pave way to programmes for an improved new Government.
“We hope Anwar can win and win big so that he can bring to Parliament the hopes of the Pakatan Rakyat and all Malaysians for a fairer, more democratic and transparent Government.
“We are confident that with the cooperation among the partners of Pakatan Rakyat, there will be new politics,” he said when opening the Ipoh Timur and Ipoh Barat DAP Parliamentary Liaison Committee annual general meetings here on Sunday night. [more]
