Yup, it's starting already.
On the same day Latheefa Koya was appointed as MACC head, which was on Raya eve, there were these other stories of Dr Mahathir's strongmen;
The first one is on Zahid Md Arip and second on Datuk Kadir Jasin.
Zahid was quite harsh, actually.
So, Anwar's supporters are now like mangy dogs, eh Zahid.
I wonder what Anwar's people think Dr Mahathir's supporters are akin to nowadays.
My read into this is that the likes of Zahid in both Dr Mahathir and Anwar camps are all gearing up for the coming fight next year in the very likely event that there's no transition of power as promised.
Datuk Kadir, who represents the more intelligent side in Dr Mahathir's camp saw the danger of Pakatan's implosion from such a fight and tried to buy time as much as possible.
Commenting on the transfer of power to Parti Keadilan Rakyat’s Anwar Ibrahim, Mr Kadir recounted how he told those at the seminar that while PH’s election promises were not cast in stone, the transition from Dr Mahathir to Mr Anwar “was clearly stated and was the linchpin in the pre-election agreement”.
Yet Datuk Kadir, being among the harshest critics of Anwar during the Reformasi days of late 1990s surely knew that the fight is inevitable.
How can it be otherwise after these sort of things;
I don't think Datuk Kadir would be so naive as to believe that Anwar could truly forgive all that and will not take his revenge after he got the power to do so.
I believe he was just trying to keep the peace for now so that the fighting would not start too early before the deadline which was supposed to be in May next year.
Meanwhile, they are gathering all the bullets and power for the showdown.
Well, while all these were going on, Umno, Pas and their gang have been rather quiet, especially after their victory in Rantau.
From what I know, they are moving quietly on the ground, building strength at the grassroots level.
Better that way, I guess.
Just wait for the Pakatan implosion and meanwhile avoid making mistakes such as issuing unnecessary statements.
Yup, that's the right way to do it.
