Anwar Ibrahim has survived a year as prime minister, but there is no cause for celebrations just yet, in Putrajaya.
If not Anwar for PM, who? Let’s call the bluff and put out the candidates, but remember, be realistic and think carefully of the requirements to lead Malaysia in a democratic system.
The core spirit of Anwar’s Malaysia Madani concept has been equality and fairness, but to compete with PN, he has apparently sidetracked from this central conviction.
Over-enthusiasm in international conflict and skipping the APEC summit will not do the country any good, and may even deprive ourselves of an opportunity to voice up for Palestine.
Anwar's response to the Middle East crisis is hugely disappointing. He is trying to score cheap political points with radical Muslims in the country.
While we cannot expect our politicians to forgo their extremist thinking, we definitely can pin our hopes on His Majesty wielding his influence to stop the situation from worsening.
The growing unpopularity of the Anwar government is creating the conditions for a recombination of political parties to change the prime minister.
