When will the prime-minister-in-waiting, Anwar Ibrahim, show his leadership qualities?
When will he start to cull his party, PKR and get rid of the weeds? He should be more firm and decisive.
Weeding or culling PKR will:-
- Improve discipline
2. Get rid of traitors who damage the party and are probably secretly informing PN of the PKR’s internal goings-on
3. Strengthen the party (within and outside)
4. Give renewed hope to the rakyat
Taliban networks organise sleeper cells which they activate when they feel the time is right. The same happens in Malaysian politics. Today, Azmin Ali activated his sleeper, the Kuala Langat MP, Dr Xavier Jayakumar.
Xavier defected to PN. His excuse for defecting, was “to avoid snap polls”. He is being economical with the truth. Xavier is now a pro-PN independent MP. We have nice words for him, which are unprintable.
GE-15 will probably be after Raya. The preparation is being done now. Destroy PKR because it is the weakest link in the Harapan coalition.
Soon, more defections will happen because Muhyiddin Yassin wants to create chaos in PKR and the other parties like Umno-Baru, PAS). Muhyiddin wants to triumph in GE-15.
Since GE-14, PKR has seen the most defections out of the component parties of Harapan.
Azmin’s supporters remaining in PKR, will inflict untold damage to PKR, if nothing is done by the Opposition leader, Anwar, to get rid of these troublemakers.
Notice the steady drip of PKR MPs to PN to become pro-PN, independent MPs.
When this happens, the rakyat thinks “What on earth is going on?” More importantly, they think PKR is doomed and worse still, the reputation of Harapan will be dragged into the sewer. This is not good for the nation or for those of us who still have hope in Harapan returning to government.
Weeds like Xavier, Julau MP Larry Sng and Tebrau MP Steven Choong have dented our faith in PKR, but more importantly the defections will affect Harapan’s image and chances at GE-125.
DAP have started to weed their party and remove pro-PN members. Amanah should do the same.
Weeds, like Edmund Santhara, damage PKR’s reputation, and like weeds in the soil, take away the nutrients supplied to the soil and damage the main crop, in this case, PKR, because the party will not be able to do its job properly.
Getting rid of the pro-Azmin members, should have been done decades ago, but Anwar being Anwar, is a poor judge of character. He should have listened to his wife, daugher and Rafizi Ramli. They are alleged to have had serious reservations about Azmin, who of course, if Muhyiddin Yassin’s best buddy now.
Over the past year and more recently, there has been a steady drip of PKR politicians leaving the party.
Several PKR members started the Sheraton Move to form the unelected, PN coalition of traitors, frogs and self-serving politicians.
Anwar should be a leader and start culling before he has no party to lead, and before he becomes history.
Whilst weeding, he should remove the dead-wood and also groom others to replace him as leader. We want people of integrity, not yes-men. We need people with vision, who are not afraid to begin a new narrative that does NOT just pander to the Malays.
Should Anwar cull himself, in the interests of PKR and the rakyat?
