Anwar Ibrahim will campaign for the opposition Islamic party against the ruling National Front in Kelantan
“Anwar will be in Kelantan state before nomination day. Definately he will garner support for PAS,” Tian Chua, information chief of the People’s Justice Party (Keadilan) said.

This would be Anwar’s first political foray since his release from jail in September last year. Nomination day is November 27 and the election on December 6.

Wow !!!this is going to be a Battle Royale between him and his old friends from BN. What do we expect? Controversial issues of the past and present to be splattered by him. Naturally he is going to use this platform to hammer certain ppl whom once were his friends.

Anyway sit back and enjoy the bashing and the drama as it unfolds...err.. emm.. now who to bank my money on!!! Pas or BN?

Back to the same old rotten choices given to bolehlanders. I hope this is the last call for Anwar, hopping for one shiit hole to another. He must have painted pas as an angle party to his bosses in Washington. :rolleyes:

I believe there is also an independent contesting....I hope he wins to send a clear message to both umno and pas that the raykat has enough of both their crab.

I doubt it, sure BN will win this one with all their money, artillery and devious methods.

Annuar Ibrahim is creating waves in Kelantan and has hit the campaign trail for the first time since his release from jail, this time supporting the Islamic opposition and promising to tackle government corruption and incompetence.

"I declare that tonight will open a new chapter in Malaysia's political history. Malaysia will be more prosperous, peaceful, corruption-free, with true justice," he told a 10,000-strong crowd of riveted spectators on Sunday

"There's talk about strong efforts by UMNO to prevent me from coming... But if I'm free, I have a voice," the charismatic 58-year-old told the crowd in this rural electorate, drawing shouts of approval.


Clearly relishing being back in the limelight, Anwar made a movie-star exit from the stadium which was packed to overflowing, triggering a near-stampede as the crowd pushed to see and touch him.

During his speech, he criticised the government over corporate controversies that hint of corruption and incompetence, including huge losses in state-run companies like Malaysia Airlines, Proton and Bank Islam.


"The fact remains that corruption is more endemic now, is more rampant - this is worrying."

"(Abdullah) has to review the entire policy. If you continue to keep corrupt ministers, corrupt UMNO leaders, and you go and shout about anti-corruption, very soon we are going to be a laughing stock."


Another spectator at the stadium, a 45-year-old civil servant named Dollah, said, "Anwar is a born leader - he has calibre, unlike the greedy, corrupt UMNO politicians. It's shameful, un-Islamic."

Even his detractors had to admit to Anwar's star quality.

"I wasn't too impressed by Anwar's spiel just now. There were several facts that he didn't really explain properly, like on graft and so on," said 31-year-old self-proclaimed swinging voter Dasuki Mohamad.

But he conceded Anwar "is still very popular. People are drawn to him as he is certainly charismatic and possesses the leadership qualities and experience." -

Considering that this isn't really a choice between Anwar and Abdullah Badawi but rather between Anwar & Najib .. errrrr .. (sorry Orchi .. have to steal your TM here) ... I'd rather place my bet on Anwar .. at least he won't be around very long and in comparison is a safer choice than Najib.

... and in comparison is a safer choice than Najib.

Lesser of the two evils eh? That's not a new twist in Malaysian politics. :D

The point to note is not how different the two are but rather their similarity.

BN won. So looks like the Anwar factor was no factor at all. Maybe, even a liability to Pas.
Perhaps now, he will know he is not as popular as people make him believe he is.
Aiyoo, don't know whether to happy or sad with this " kinda expected" results. :o

State elections soon ?? :D
