Mahathir vs Anwar: All Out War Soon Triggered By Sex Scandal & Maszlee’s ‘Sacking’ – DAP Wants Tun M Out & Anwar In On Or Before 10th May 2020

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim displayed optimism that the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council would discuss the date of power transfer from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to him and claimed the matter had been ‘decided’ by the council earlier.

A well-placed source from inside PKR revealed that Dr Maszlee Malik’s resignation on Mahathir’s advice is the real reason Anwar is panicking.
According to the source, Maszlee is Anwar’s man and had been assisting DAP’s Teo Nie Ching fulfil Anwar’s joint agenda with the DAP.

How far this is true isn’t very clear to me. What is clear, however, is that the majority in Parliament is aligned with team Mahathir-Azmin-Zuraida Kamaruddin and agrees that Anwar is no longer relevant.

There may be an all out war between Anwar and Mahathir very, very soon.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim displayed optimism that the Pakatan Harapan (PH) Presidential Council would discuss the date of power transfer from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to him and claimed the matter had been ‘decided’ by the council earlier.

Although several quarters from Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia (PPBM) had previously brushed off claims of a “power transition agreement,” Anwar insists a signed agreement exists and seems bent on keeping discussions regarding the agreement alive.

“There are such views but as was agreed upon, it needs to be discussed between me and the prime minister and by right in the presidential council for the exact date.

“It is well worth to discuss it in a good atmosphere. There is no need to make it impassioned,” he reportedly said after attending the UPSR 2016-2019 Tamil School’s Excellence Student Award ceremony organised by OMS Foundation in Seri Kembangan toay.

On the 10th of December 2019, Mahathir told Reuters in an interview that he would not hand over the premiership before a summit of Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) countries that Malaysia is set to host in November but could be ready after that.

However, four days later, at a forum in Doha, he suggested that he may seek to stay in power beyond 2020, adding that he could not guarantee who would succeed him.

Anwar’s incessant rants regarding power transition has created a climate of political uncertainty and turmoil in the eyes of investors and has caused many of them to pull out commitments, significantly weakening the economy.

On the 22nd of November 2019, Mahathir said Anwar had agreed during a meeting held at the Perdana Leadership Foundation that the transition issue should be handled without “causing too much strain to the country.”

“He (Anwar) said that he understands the problems we currently face and that there shouldn’t be too much tension (in the transition of power), with people making all kinds of suggestions like the date of the transition,” Mahathir said when asked what was discussed during the meeting.

However, a spate of events that unfolded thereafter caused Anwar and his men to push the panic button, seeing that his days as Prime-Minister-in-waiting may be coming to an end, forget becoming Prime Minister.

On the 4th of December 2019, Muhammed Yusoff Rawther broke the internet with claims that Anwar had attacked him sexually and physically and had even tried to sodomise him.

The claims were contained in a three-page Statutory Declaration (SD) which Yusoff read out to a press conference on that day.

Several days later, Yusoff lodged a police report and took a lie detector test. According to a well placed source, Yusoff passed the test with flying colours while Anwar has refused to undergo the test.

The recently concluded PKR national congress was also a huge blow to Anwar and proved that the PKR president had lost all manner of strategic control over the party his wife, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail had founded.

On the 21st of November 2019, days ahead of a congress scheduled in Sabah, state PKR chief Baru Bian led more than two thirds of Sabah PKR’s leadership to Putrajaya to express displeasure at the party’s central leadership over its treatment of Datuk Seri Azmin Ali.

At a press conference, Bian, accompanied by 18 party division chiefs and 10 leadership council members, warned PKR not to go ahead with the Sabah congress unless and until the party’s central leadership was willing to iron out differences.

Anwar ignored the warning and went ahead with the congress. However, the 500-odd crowd turnout spoke volumes as to who was truly in control of PKR, i.e., Anwar or Azmin.

There were even claims that Anwar’s men were forced to fork out as much as RM500 per head just to get a handful of people to attend the event.

But the real indicator of just how powerful Azmin is came on the 7th of December 2019 when the PKR number two led more than two thirds of the party’s central command and hundreds of delegates out of a conference hall where the party’s national congress was ongoing.

The walkout, in retaliation to Anwar’s address, was indicator enough that Anwar’s days as PKR president were coming to an end.

Everyone from central command involved with the protest agreed that Anwar had betrayed a ceasefire agreement which he had entered with Azmin.

A well-placed source from inside PKR revealed that Dr Maszlee Malik’s resignation on Mahathir’s advice is the real reason Anwar is panicking.

According to the source, Maszlee is Anwar’s man and had been assisting DAP’s Teo Nie Ching fulfil Anwar’s joint agenda with the DAP.

How far this is true isn’t very clear to me. What is clear, however, is that the majority in Parliament is aligned with team Mahathir-Azmin-Zuraida Kamaruddin and agrees that Anwar is no longer relevant.

There may be an all out war between Anwar and Mahathir very, very soon.

One thing about Mahathir and Anwar is that they are both stubborn like hell and will not back down. Anwar is determined to take over as Prime Minister on or before 10th May 2020 while Mahathir is determined to prevent that from happening. So, the fight is going to be very bloody with no prisoners. Only one is going to walk away and the other will die on the battlefield.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

Raja Petra Kamarudin

The many commentaries and statements over the last few weeks, and escalating over the last few days, is very clear. They want Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad out on or before 10th May 2020. Yes, within another 127 days Mahathir is supposed to go into retirement and power is supposed to be handed over to Anwar Ibrahim.

This is going to be the longest 127 days in Malaysia’s history.

PKR, DAP, and Anwar Ibrahim’s supporters, will not compromise on this issue. On or before 10th May 2020 Anwar must be installed as Malaysia’s eighth Prime Minister. There are no two ways about it. On or before 10th May 2020: Mahathir out, Anwar in.

But is this going to happen?

Anwar claims there is a written agreement that Mahathir will stay as Prime Minister for only two years, after which he will vacate the post and hand it over to him.

Anwar says there is a written agreement that Mahathir will stay as Prime Minister for only two years, after which he will vacate the post and hand it over to him. Those in Mahathir’s inner circle — such as Rafidah Aziz, Khairuddin Abu Hassan and Kadir Jasin — say no such agreement exists, whether written or otherwise.

The message is clear. If you want Mahathir out and Anwar in on or before 10th May 2020, then the old man has to be pushed out. He must be pressured to go. If voluntarily, Mahathir will not go. If left to his own devices, Mahathir will breathe his last breath in office. A gun needs to be put to Mahathir’s head if you want him to retire.

In short, Mahathir will die in office and will not die in retirement unless you do a coup.

PAS is with Mahathir and not with Anwar, who PAS sees as DAP’s proxy
PAS backs Mahathir to stay on. DAP is with Anwar. The PAS splinter party, Amanah, has not openly stated its stand but they are mostly with Anwar. Umno and PKR appear divided between Mahathir and Anwar with many not openly stating who they support.

The line is very hazy and both sides do not really know what numbers they have (although both claim they have the numbers: meaning more than 112 members of parliament). Even those who went to Azmin Ali’s house in Putrajaya together with Hishammuddin Hussein in October last year were not all pro-Mahathir. Quite a number went out of curiosity to find out what is going on.

The Sabah and Sarawak MPs are standing on the sideline to wait and see. If Anwar can get the majority they will swing over to him. If Anwar cannot get the majority they will stay ‘neutral’. In short, they will support the winner, whoever that may be — Mahathir or Anwar.

DAP wants Mahathir out and Anwar in on or before 10th May 2020
No, it is not a done deal yet. Both sides are still in the game. The winner could be Mahathir or the winner could be Anwar. The eventual outcome will depend on what happens over these next 127 days: the longest 127 days in Malaysia’s history.

One thing about Mahathir and Anwar is that they are both stubborn like hell and will not back down. Anwar is determined to take over as Prime Minister on or before 10th May 2020 while Mahathir is determined to prevent that from happening. So, the fight is going to be very bloody with no prisoners. Only one is going to walk away and the other will die on the battlefield.

And in the meantime, we will wait and see if war breaks out in the Middle East that may trigger World War III.

PKR Youth Wants Anwar Be Made PM This May

The resignation of former education minister Maszlee Malik and Johor menteri besar Osman Sapian before that proves that a harmonious transition of power can occur within the Pakatan Harapan government, PKR Youth chief Akmal Nasir said today.

He said members should respect such top-level decisions.

He also urged the PH secretariat to fix a specific date for PKR president Anwar Ibrahim’s transition to power as the eighth prime minister at the upcoming PH presidential council meeting.

He suggested that this meeting fix May 2020 as the date for the transition.

“The PKR Youth (AMK) welcomes the statement by the Pakatan Harapan secretariat chief regarding our commitment to the implementation of the promises contained in the election manifesto and Muafakat PH on Jan 6, 2018 to support Anwar as the eighth prime minister after Dr Mahathir Mohamad.”

Akmal said any agreement for the date of transition will further reflect unity within the government and disprove any perceptions of party infighting, as often played up by the opposition.

Recently, Maszlee Malik quit his post as education minister after being advised by the prime minister, amid controversies over his education policies.

Meanwhile, Penang state exco member and Seberang Jaya PKR assemblyman Dr Afif Bahardin said a study conducted by the KRA Group last November showed that 70% of the people were not overly concerned over the transition of power issue.

“People are more concerned about issues related to the cost of living,” he said in a statement.

He said Mahathir had already stated that the question of transition was guaranteed and will take place once the country was in a stable condition.
