The Malay Mail says Anwar wants Nurul Izzah to be next PKR leader

  • DATUK SERI Anwar Ibrahim's political fight will not end until daughter Nurul Izzah becomes the president of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and leader of the Pakatan Rakyat.

  • Failing in his own attempts at being prime minister following the 13th general election (GE13), many political observers are expecting the PKR de facto leader to turn his efforts and strategies to secure his eldest child's future and his own legacy.

  • This is the reason why Anwar, in the past few months, has been rallying youngsters — students and university and college graduates — to continue the "battle". This new generation will be Nurul Izzah’s backbone and platform.

  • Observers believe PKR's general assembly, which is supposed to include party elections, has been postponed to give Anwar time to plan for a status quo or no-contest condition.

  • It will enable Nurul Izzah to be groomed and ready by the time the party holds its next election, just before the 14th general election, to be the PKR president and lead the opposition pact.

Anwar says no more rallies for now

  • Pakatan Rakyat does not plan to hold more Black 505 rallies at the present time.

  • "Not now, for now no, but I cannot speak up for the non-governmental organisations. As for Pakatan Rakyat, we have to move on (from the Black 505 rally), but the protest (against the results) will have to move on," Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said.

  • Asked on whether this meant a transition from street rallies to other tools such as petitions, Anwar said, "The protest has to continue, that is obvious."

  • He said Pakatan's protest would still go on in respect of the election petitions. He said they would continue to work with foreign countries to expose incidents of fraud during the recent polls.

Pakatan says they will not boycott the Dewan rakyat swearing-in cremony

  • PKR will not snub the swearing in of its elected representatives and denied ever making the suggestion, party deputy president Azmin Ali has said, after the move drew criticism even from both sides of the divide, including the party’s own allies in Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

  • The party's political bureau made a unanimous decision Wednesday night not to boycott the sitting scheduled on June 24. PKR Wanita chief Zuraida Kamaruddin confirmed that the decision was unanimous.

  • PKR has denied it had ever considered boycotting the swearing-in ceremony when the new session of Parliament begins this month, reported to be as a sign of protest over electoral fraud.

  • "I wish to state categorically that at no point of time did PKR decide to carry out any boycott of the oath taking process," said PKR deputy president in a statement late last night.

  • “KEADILAN and Pakatan Rakyat had only decided to boycott the parliamentary briefing on June 11, 2013,” Azmin said in a statement issued after the party met to discuss the matter at its political bureau meeting late last night.

  • He added that all PKR parliamentarians will be at the oath taking ceremony and will "vigorously execute their duties as the rakyat's elected representatives".

Pakatan files 25 election petitions against 24 federal seats

  • "Sabah immigration is arranging my deportation. I am not allowed to meet (Penampang) MP Darrell Leiking, who's here waiting for me," she said.

  • “I believe this is a big mistake… and it needs to be corrected,” Bung Moktar tweeted. “I don’t understand why Nurul was not allowed to enter Sabah. If it’s true, then this is a mistake and a disaster,” added the Umno supreme council member.

  • Penampang MP Darell Leiking from PKR also criticized the barring of the Lembah Pantai lawmaker’s entry into Sabah, saying that it had “hurt our state’s reputation as hosts”.

  • In a statement PKR Communication director, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said the autocratic action portrayed that democracy was dying under Barisan Nasional's administration.

Research shows Pakatan won two-thirds of multi-racial seats

  • Pakatan Rakyat (PR) won in 59 mixed-race federal seats, almost double its 30 wins in Chinese-majority seats in Malaysia’s Election 2013, according to a new research, debunking Barisan Nasional’s (BN) claim of a “Chinese Tsunami” that cost it more losses.

  • Independent online research house also said the ruling BN gained most of its votes from rural federal seats while PR increased its support from urban and semi-urban areas in the South-east Asian nation chasing developed nation status by 2020.

  • PoliTweet also pointed out that PR had won more urban and semi-urban Malay-majority seats than BN, effectively making Malay-majority seats no longer a guaranteed win for BN.

Pakatan reveals names of 8 voters who were robbed of the right to vote

  • PKR director of strategy Rafizi Ramli today revealed the names of eight individuals who had made police reports about someone else voting on their behalf across the country, which he says proves the existence of phantom voters.

  • "They are other types of cases but this is the first category of fraud I am raising today. This is the most fundamental and the most important that the EC and National registration Department have to answer to - how did you allow people to have multiple I.Cs and fraudulent I.Cs to vote?"

  • “This shows that the existence of identical MyKads given to various individuals so that they can become phantom voters,” he alleged.

  • "I would welcome Khairy who has happily assumed his seat in the Cabinet to speak up on this matter. He has modelled himself as a reformist - so what does he have to say in the face of the mass of evidence that has been accumulated," Rafizi Ramli.

Rafizi says Pakatan will pressure for EC reform ‘in court, in the streets, in Parliament’

  • Pakatan Rakyat (PR) will continue to pressure the government for the Election Commission (EC) to be completely reformed if Malaysia wants to see a clean election the next time around, said PKR director of strategy Rafizi Ramli.

  • “We have been told that to file a petition, it would cost up to RM50,000 for each petition per seat and that means the 27 seats we are currently investigating could cost us close to RM1.5 million if we were to file petitions,” he said.

  • “We need the whole EC to be completely reformed, where the chairman down to all its officers are replaced by new officers that are approved by PR and the public to ensure their impartiality,” he said.

  • “We must continue to fight, whether it is in court, in the streets or in Parliament to push for a complete reform of the EC or else Barisan Nasional (BN) will continue to cheat to win,” the Pandan MP said.

Anwar says no street protest, but more rallies

  • Pakatan Rakyat (PR) today distanced itself from calls for street protests to overturn the results of Election 2013, with Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim saying the pact will stick to indoor rallies to “voice their disgust” at alleged electoral fraud in the May 5 polls.

  • Anwar, however, insisted that the rallies are necessary as an avenue for the voters to voice their protest against the rigged results.

    “We must allow the people to voice their disgust,” he said.

  • Anwar said calls for a mass street protest to oust the elected Barisan Nasional (BN) administration did not originate from PR but from affiliated non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

  • He said that the move to implement hudud will go on despite objections from DAP. In the past, DAP had rejected the implementation of hudud law, but not anymore.

April 23: PKR, PAS, DAP are more united than ever

  • "The Moon Represents My Heart" took on a deeper meaning last week when the DAP declared that it was prepared to run in the general election using the PAS logo.

  • The Islamist party's quick willingness to allow its ally to use their full moon logo in the event that DAP's rocket is rejected represents a big shift in Malaysian politics.

  • "This is an unexpected twist which is certainly benefiting the opposition. But it will also be a positive development for Malaysian politics overall," Yang Razali Kassim.

  • "The opposition has been energised as a more cohesive and unified coalition, driving Malaysian politics further down the road of a two-coalition system," he added.

  • "This could be bad for Umno because how do you attack Lim Kit Siang as anti-Islam if he is using the PAS logo?" said Mr Ramli Yunus, an Umno division secretary in Kedah.

  • UMNO had been using Lim Kit Siang as a "Chinese chauvinist" to scare Malay voters, and PAS Hadi Awang to stop Chinese voters from backing a party with plans to implement strict Islamic laws.
