SHAH ALAM, 10 MAR: PKR Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim stated his readiness in dealing with any potential manipulation of statements which will be potentially played by pro-Umno-BN media including linking him with the conflict in Lahad Datu, Sabah.

“I will face it, and I will not retreat at all.I pray that Allah will give me strength.

“Who wants to be attainted for almost 15 years? Every night they (pro-Umno/BN media) is abusive towards me. I think about (Datuk Seri) Azizah, my children, faithful friends.

“But for me, these are lessons, there is wisdom,” he said.


Earlier this week, the media manipulated the song ‘Sabah Nak Hilang’ (Sabah Is Disappearing) Anwar’s rendition of the song which is has been often sung in a series of ;public lectures since six months ago apart from ‘hiding’ the lyrics “Umno is sailing away, Najib becomes the Opposition Leader”.

In addition, Anwar also brought a defamation suit against Utusan Malaysia and TV3 Television Station worth RM100 million each agency.

Anwar who is also the Selangor State Economic Advisor also praised the strong integrity practiced by the Chief Minister, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim which cannot be challenged by Umno-BN.

“It is the lack of this principle, that is why Umno-BN cannot challenge. They cannot doubt Tan Sri’s (Abdul Khalid) integrity,” he added in a speech after the evening climax of the 5th Selangor Government Anniversary celebrations.

Anwar who is also the Member of Parliament for Permatang Pauh informed that at this level, the distribution of seats among the three parties in the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) coalition is already 90 percent completed and is still in the negotiation process.

Anwar explained that this division process is still in the negotiation stages between Selangor PKR Chairman, Azmin Ali, PAS Secretary-General, Datuk Mustafa Ali and DAP Vice-Chairman, Tan Kok Wai.

“What is important is that when a decision is made, we will take the decision and collaborate our work as a team.

“PKR candidates are PAS candidates. PAS candidates are DAP candidates and DAP candidates are the candidates of all three of these parties,” he said.

He stressed that if there is any party who tries to question the decision of the candidates which has been agreed by all three of this parties, clearly proves that they do not understand the actual frame of the struggle and block efforts of PR to win Putrajaya.
