PITA POLITIK (67): FOREIGN COVERAGE FAVOURS ANWAR MORE...

Saturday August 2, 2008
Paper: Anwar planning no-confidence vote
KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is gathering support to file a no-confidence vote against the Government in six weeks, the Financial Times reported yesterday.

Anwar, who is fighting allegations of sodomy with a former aide, played down speculation that he would soon be formally charged.

“With all the evidence that is now before them, I don't see any reason why the authorities should continue with these investigations of alleged sodomy,” Anwar was quoted as saying by Financial Times.

“In any other system where there is justice and fairness, the powers would have by now shut down the investigations and cleared my name.”

Sodomy, even between consenting adults, is punishable by up to 20 years in prison in Malaysia. – Reuters (The Star Online)

Comment
Some media analysts say overseas news coverage on former Malaysian DPM, Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim favours him more. On the same day opinion poll conducted by an independent organisation says PM Dato' Seri Abdullah Ahmad badawi's popularity is at all-time low (about 23%). Not sure whether there is a co-relation between the two news coverage. Hopefully not!

On another note how will Anwar plan aa no-confidence vote against the government when he is yet to become an MP, unless of course he will use someone from the Pakatan Rakyat to act as his proxy. So politically the war of attrition between Anwar and Abdullah goes on.
