There is a lot of uneasiness in town, my friends tell me. And it’s all got to do with Anwar Ibrahim’s deadline on Tuesday – for Parliament to convene an emergency meeting.
Even deputy prime minister, now finance minister Najib Tun Razak has cancelled his trip overseas. Despite saying that Anwar is acting (Rais Yatim in New Straits Times), it seems UMNO is preparing for the worst.
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and Najib swapping portfolios, may seem like paving the way for the latter to become Prime Minister, but will that happen?
It seems like the most likely scenario now. But not if someone has his way!
However, I think Anwar is moving too slow in realising his plans, almost tortoise like, frogs are supposed to jump with much agility.
Why so slow when it seems the Agong has agreed to the ‘PLAN’? Why so slow when instead of 31 (++), there may actually be about 48 (+/-) defectors?
Perhaps,what is more likely to happen is Anwar’s arrest on September 24.
“When the prime minister, in any developing country where these sorts of security laws are in operation, states that you are a threat to the economy and possibly national security, then the next option is to arrest” (Anwar in TheAGE).
