Anwar ready to contest in by-election

Datuk Seri Abwar Ibrahim said Sunday he is ready to contest in any by-election, having obtained approval from the Registrar of Societies to do so.

"I've received the letter from the Registrar (of Societies). My lawyers have advised that we do not need an approval letter from the AG (Attorney-General).The letter from the Registrar of Societies is sufficient ," he said, according to a Bernama report.

Anwar, the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) adviser, who returned to active politics on April 15 following the expiry of the five-year ban imposed on him by the court following his conviction for corruption, said he was prepared to contest if any PKR Member of Parliament was willing to make way for a by-election to be held this year.

The general election regulations state that a by-election can only be called six months after a general election is held.In the last general election, PKR won 31 parliamentary seats.

Anwar so confident he can lower petrol prices and puts himself on the line. Very brave. And a little bit arrogant. But that's Anwar for you.

I'm just thinking what mathematics and startegy Anwar palling to use to lower down the petrol price. Probably he should enlighten the public about his plans.

Am not an Anwar diehard. I believe he has move on. Let's give him permission to leave the past behind.

What's wrong with having ambition?

Having ambition certainly not wrong. But perhaps Anwar is still shadowed by the old "anwar" he was known for. That's why so many people are scpetical of his agendas and ideas. He is perceived as a chameleon, always adapting and changing according to situations. Scour the blogs and you may see the "real sides of anwar"

First , nobody from the opposition should resign for him. If anyone is to resign it should be his wife and follow by his daughter. Let him wait untul one MP dies or wait for the GE.

Secondly, when one is not in power yet, one will promise the moon. Eg the fuel price, the way he is saying that he will reduce it in such a way that as though only he knows the secret to cheap fuel and not making the country bankrupt and none of our experts in the govt and other govts overseas which have done away with the subsiy know!
Like the free water promise of Selangor, only talk but no result yet. Talk is cheap
