Who will challenge Anwar...?

Umno does not have to bother looking for a candidate. Two have already offered themselves to contest against the PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim in the forthcoming by-election in Permatang Pauh.

Ezam Mohd Nor, Anwar’s former protegy turned adversary has expressed his willingness to stand against his former mentor “to uphold the truth”, according to Malaysiakini.

The other is Pirdaus Ismail who had contested twice in Permatang Pauh has declared his interest for Round Three (Malaysiakini Umno's Pirdaus ready for Round 3 )

Pirdaus, who was defeated in the 2004 and 2008 polls by Anwar’s wife Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, said he is ready to take on the opposition stalwart if fielded as the Barisan Nasional candidate for the seat.

Ezam the former Keadilan Rakyat Youth chief, who is now an Umno member, has declared that Anwar is not a warrior because he had chosen to a safe seat and said he would not reject an offer if chosen as a candidate. ( Malaysiakini - Anwar is no warrior, says Ezam).

"If you ask me whether I am prepared to stand against Anwar Ibrahim, I would say that I am ready and I would not reject such an offer. Victory or defeat is not the main thing. More importantly, it is opposing Anwar as a team to uphold the truth.

"That is why I say do not talk of victory or defeat to me, and do not scare me with the constituency of Permatang Pauh. Do not challenge me because I am a fighter and I will fight," he said.

This was the second time Ezam has offered himself to vie for the seat on behalf of Umno and the Barisan Nasional.

The first time he did so was on Thursday, soon after Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail announced her resignation as the MP for Permatang Pauh to make way for her husband to contest the seat in a by-election.

That Ezam is not a local Penang boy may also prove unfavourable to him in his quest to obtain the Umno ticket.

Meanwhile, Parliament notified the Election Commission of the vacancy in Permatang Pauh yesterday. According to the EC, they will meet on Wednesday to decide on the dates for nomination and polling for the by-election.. – Malaysiakini

The by-election is being called for after its Member of Parliament and PKR president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail resigned from the seat on Thursday to pave the way for her husband, Anwar, to contest and make his way into parliament.

The Election Commission is scheduled to meet on Wednesday to set the nomination and polling dates for the by-election.

(Wah cakap besar. Jangan takbur, bang oi. Belum tentu lagi. So what are you fighting for, Ezam? “To tell truth" (about Anwar)? Is it? It seems to me that is all that you are concerned with - to “expose” Anwar. It's not as though we don’t know after what we've been fed about him. For once . do come up with something more intelligent other than venting out your personal vendetta. I really, really hope Umno will field him as a candidate, let him get slaughtered and lose his deposit!)

Cermin-cermin dirilah dulu sebelum bak masuk gelanggang. Tengok dan lihat dulu Permatang Pauh kawasan siapa, asalnya.

Kenapa kata Anwar bukan pahlawan just because he is going to contest in his old constituency? Ngok!

Wei, itu kampung dia, kawasannya yang di bagi kpd isterinya "to take take care while away".

A vote for Azizah was a vote for her husband. Faham tak?

Pi belajaq sejarah sikit. Jangan nak hentam tak tentu fasal.

Good luck to you, Ezam.

"Pi belajaq sejarah sikit."

Lol! He's going to be history when this Umno lapdog is slaughtered.

None other, the one and only, self-centred and egoistic double headed snake. I hope Umno grant him his wish...I want to see this chap really get roasted!

Tok Mommy,

Sebagai orang tua dari segi umur, dan tua juga dalam lapangan yang lain saya merasakan agak pelik apabila ada manusia yang cuba ( ke hulu dan ke hilir ) mendendangkan yang ia akan cuba mendedahkan aib oarng lain ( Kalau ada!). Islam mengajar kita supaya tidak mendedahkan aib dan keburukan orang lain. Berpahala. Apatah lagi mendedahkan aib sahabat kita ( dulu) atau ketua kita dan orang yang telah bayak membantu kita.

Sekali lagi saya tegaskan, sebagai orang tua, apakah begini caranya orang muda sekarang membalas budi jasa orang yang telah berbudi kepada kita. Apakah telah silap guru yang mengajar atau pun sistem pendidikan yang tak betul.

Sebagai orang tua, saya amat keliru.

Even Najib said that BN has to be realistic because the fight in Permatang Pauh isnt going to be say. P.Pauh is Anwar's turf. His kawasan It's his.

Here you have Ezam, boasting abt taking on Anwar.

Baguslah tu. Nak korbankan diri. Nak jadi matyr for Umno yang dah bankrup dengan ide.

Dont put it pass Ameno to resorting to dirry tricks.

Maria,

Tiga orang saja yng layak dipilih oleh UMNO untuk bertanding menentang DSAI. Ketiga-tiga orang ini adalah perancang dan strategies utama politik Abdulah Badawi. Tig tokoh ini ialah Kalimullah, Kamaluddin dan Anuar Zaini. Beranikah mereka turun padang? Sanggupkah mereka berhadapan DSAI?

Ezam a "fighter"?

Aye. Those can, think. Those who can't, fight.

Yea, that just about describe him from other unflattering "accolades".

One of which would now also include, he is less than original. An shallow. In terms of comic books' terminologies - "warrior", "fighter", "seeker and defender of the truth".

Ezam,when you have no depth or substance, try not using such words ok? Makes you sound like a cartoon and comical character.

A wise leader will not opt to take personal attack to gain publicity or to gain power.

To Ezam, please consider stop critizing others because the same will go to you by others. We "Rakyat" are so fedup with all these smearing and counter smearing tactics play by both side. Why not you start to think how you can bring change to the current covernment for the sake of the Rakyat. Don't tell us that you join UMNO because you only aim to topple DSAI and have no others thing to do. If this is the case, tell us why we should vote you?

Certainly not Ezam,the fler who lost his integrity when he abandoned GERAK.He lost his credibility completely when he re-entered UMNO.No one will ever listen to him talking about corruption any more!Saiful will lose his deposit, should he have the gut to challenge DSAI.The 2-time loser to DSWA will certainly become the 3-time loser.If it is going to be a battle between DSAI and UMNO, then the candidate will have to be the UMNO Bahagian Head of Permatang Pauh!

What is Ezam going to expose lah...

1.that Anwar also buggered him?
2.that he (Ezam) got buggered by Umno?
3.that he (Ezam) is buggering Umno?
4.that Ezam couldn't be buggered by his Gerak baby anymore?
5. that he (Ezam) is also just an Umno bugger now?
6. that we could be buggered by the US if Anwar comes into power? (aren't we all already?)
7. that Malaysia is being buggered real bad by all the buggers?

Tell me Ezam...tell me please...or just bugger off lah...

Tak kisahlah siapa yang akan bertanding lawan dengan Anwar. Yang pasti jika BN mencalonkan mereka yang power-power sekalipun, kemenangan agak sukar untuk diraih kerana seperti yang kita tau Anwar mempunyai kekuatan penyokongnya di sana tetapi bukan bermaksud BN tidak ada harapan menang. Cuma ianya sukar diramal...
