Poll: Majority of Malaysiakini readers believe flip-flop Bala is telling the truth

An overwhelming number of Malaysiakini readers who participated in a 24-hour survey believe that private eye P. Balasubramaniam was telling the truth in his first statutory declaration, which was retracted a day after it was made public.

A total of 6,418 Malaysiakini readers participated in the one-day survey which went live yesterday morning.

The survey found that 92 per cent, or 5,880, of readers believe that Balasubramaniam’s first statutory declaration was true.

Meanwhile, 86 percent of readers are of the opinion that Deputy Prime Minister Najib Razak is working with Mohd Saiful Bukhary Azlan, the 23-year-old who claimed he was sodomised by his former boss, PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.

About the same number, 5,102 or 80 percent, dismissed the idea that Anwar was in cahoots with Saiful to bring out the sodomy allegations - the second time such accusations have been levelled against the former deputy premier in 10 years - ostensibly to gain public sympathy.

The survey result is more mixed when readers are asked on who is ‘protecting’ Balasubramaniam, who has been missing since last Friday. - MALAYSIAKINI Poll: Readers' views on flip-flop Bala

the questions did not encompass this, but I'm sure 100% (or very VERY close) are sick of their politicking and just want to see some good old governance. Though I do hope Mr Bala and his family are safe. Might be too much to ask him to come forth again if indeed so much of his life and that of his family is in danger.

It is more likely that Anwar is behind all of this..

Entah2 Bala ni orang suruhan Anwar..Semuanya dah dirancang supaya nanti dapat persalahkan kerajaan. Dia buat semua ni untuk menanam keraguan terhadap kerajaan oleh rakyat..
