The homecoming of Anwar Ibrahim

I read with interest the Opinion piece, “GE15: The homecoming of Anwar Ibrahim” (The Independent Singapore, Nov 27).

It’s an inspiring news to learn that Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s appointment as the 10th prime minister of Malaysia, after his 25 years long winding struggle in the politics.

Anwar’s staunch courage, determination and fortitude which shape him to stand tall today.

Now, it will be the conspicuous focus for his political opponents and the world to observe how Anwar carried out his promises during the GE15 election campaign.

For examples, Anwar pledged to make sweeping changes in the administration, outlining measures like combating corruption and strengthening democracy, managing the cost of living issues by eliminating cartels, ensuring sufficient supplies of food products and increasing the workforce in agriculture to guarantee food security, improving competitiveness and also reducing the size of a bloated cabinet.

Undeniably, Anwar’s political road to combat corruption in Malaysia will be touchy, and it can be likened to climbing a steep and rocky mountain. As we know, corruption has existed in the commercial and political landscapes for donkey years, and it is prevalent in many countries. Thus, whether his actions of eliminating corruption will be successful or not, it will greatly depend upon the wisdom, determination and collective efforts of his newly-formed coalition government.

Further, in this Malaysia’s GE15, quite a substantial percentage of Malay voters had cast their votes in favour of the Perikatan Nasional (National Alliance) and Parti Islam Se-Malaysia” (Pas-Malaysian Islamic Party). These clearly showed that they are very afraid and worried that their core welfare and benefits of “Bumiputra; the Orang Asli of Peninsular Malaysia” or Malay aborigines will be gradually diluted, sidelined or vanished.

Hence, it will be another uphill task for Anwar to tackle the imperative issue of racial polarisation.

How would Anwar ensure the national fabric of multiracialism and multi-religion are firmly remained intact yet to test his wisdom and capability.

In short, Anwar needs to urgently consolidate the unity and harmony among the diverse ethnicity in this multiracial, multi-religious and multicultural society of Malaysia after the GE15, so that his coalition government could synergies/integrate the people, and move the country towards its economic developments.

The Administration of Anwar needs to actively strengthen and deepen its foreign relations and economic cooperation with its Asean partners and major advanced economies (such as Japan, Korea, Germany, China and USA). These significant approaches will definitely help to bring in more investments for Malaysia, for spurring its economic growth.

Besides, Anwar’s government needs to deal with the soaring inflation and high costs of living.

As we know, due to the recent Ukraine war, the antagonism and conflicts between the US-and-China, the fluctuation of oil supply and the intermittent disruption of global supply chains which have undoubtedly accelerated the swift rise of global inflation. These have unavoidably affected the quality and heightening the costs of living of every Malaysian.

Last but not least, Anwar needs to further improve the road, communication and other infrastructures (such as upgrading all Malaysia’s drainage systems) domestically. This move will facilitate the convenience of travel and logistics, and enhance the quality of life for all the Malaysians.

    He has already failed before he has begun.Zahid’s appointment will only keep investors away and his own appointment as the PM and Finance Minister shows he lacks integrity. He has betrayed the Rakyat.An election reflects the wishes of the people.Anwar’s greed to be PM places his interest above the Rakyat.Barisan made the people vote wading floods.The Rakyat voted but now Zahid is deputy PM again. There will be a tussle for power soon.

  • Observer:

    Singapore’s opposition parties should absorb lessons from Anwar’s and Harapan’s victory in 2022, as well as Malaysia 2018 and Egypt 2012.

    1) Abandon the Anti-PAP Coalition.
    Parties that support rule-based order should dare to go into 3-corner contests against parties that support authoritarian regimes abroad. The Anti-PAP coalition has failed Singapore’s opposition parties for 3 decades.

    2) Do Not Nominate EX-PAP-High-Flyers-Who-Are-Agents-For-Foreign-Authoritarian-Regimes.
    Some ex-PAP High-Flyers may have impressive resume, because PAP gave them opportunities. But maybe PAP discarded them because their role as agents for foreign authoritarian regimes became troublesome for PAP’s relationships with the Rule-Based-World-Order.

  • Yazid Should Be Out:

    Yazid is a selfish man. He insisted to have this GE in spite of the Monsoon Season thinking Barisan will win and he can be PM, But Harapan need to combine to form the new government and he bulldozes his way and forced Anwar to appoint him as DPM. How to clear corruption when he himself is facing many charges of corruption ? Anwar will have a big problem. This is my personal opinion.

    The PAP has too many Ministers (eg Minister Of State, Senior Ministers of State, Ministers and on top of that there are Mayors earning minimum of 600K Sin Dollars. Why do we need so many Ministers to run a small piece of land ?

    This is just wasting of public money.

    The PAP uses taxpayers’ monies to reward party members by creating various unnecessary appointments in different ministries.728sq m of land, only one State but we have cabinet ministers as well as state ministers plus senior ministers and parliamentary secretaries who actually do the work and assistants.One Cabinet Minister and permanent secretary plus assistant should suffice but then who will join the PAP then?

    The writer seems to talk cock. And make it sound so simple – AI need do this, do that.
    Extremely ez for outsiders to say like what writer said (is the writer a politician, with X years of OTJ experience?)

    The issue is while one reflect on AI achievement to become PM – one need imperatively to understand how long does it take as what writer wrote for Anwar to achieve all, and bearing in mind will AI stay as PM long enough, say more than a term to do tt many tgs.

    Please la writer, where is your perspective (and context) ?

    In a very small island of 3m local born, pap needs 1 PM, 2 dy PMs, tonnes of ministers, besides the senior MOS, MOS, and the most wasteful of taxpayer monies of all, 5 mayors.

    pap says, not true lah, we also need to manage 3m aliens PRs, that is, 6m+ residents. As if we care about the 3m aliens PRs.

    Why must we the citizens be bearing all these wasteful expenditures by pap? temasick loses money, GST rise. GIC loses money, HDB property tax rise.

    GST is a sick tool to raise money for pap empty coffer. because for jobless local born, GST is as good as squeezing blood out of stone.

    HDB property tax rise is another sick tool to raise money for pap empty coffer. because unless HDB lessee rents out space in the HDB, HDB lessee has no additional income. So where got logic to tax more? Moreover, lessor of HDB is HDB. If pap likes money so much, pap can jolly well make HDB pay property tax. It is very wrong for pap to impose property tax on Public Housing. And it is worse when lessee is made to bear the property tax.

    We have raised the case elsewhere. We don’t have good people in pap government. We don’t even have a decent human to be the PM. We need men of Mr Xi’s calibre or Mr Anwar’s caring nature to be our PM.

    At his age, Anwar will have a DAUNTING Task trying his very best to RIGHT all the WRONGS committed by all the previous PeeMs from Dr M to Ahjib(except fairly Righteous Tun Ahmad Badawi)! Hopefully, under his Leadership, Malaysia will SLOWLY and GRADUALLY develop into one of those SHINING stars(Indonesia, Vietnam, etc)we are now witnessing around COMPLACENT, ARROGANT and SQUEEZING MONEY FROM HER PEOPLE AT ALL COST, SinKapore!

    Anyway, hat off and salute BOTH Anwar and his GREAT WIFE, Wan Azizah for their PERSEVERANCE, PATIENCE AND RESILIENCE! Malaysia Boleh and Jia Yu!

    For SinKapore, Hopefully in the next GE, voters will do the NEEDFUL for our beloved country: SEND MAI HUM AND GANG TO GO FLY KITE AT EAST COAST PARK AND MATE WITH THE SPIDER!

    Anwar must have made many concessions to Zahid for his support to make him PM. Those concessions will begin to show itself in time.So don’t be too disappointed when all is revealed for BN’s support of Anwar. He has already made Zahid deputy PM much to the anguish of the Malaysians.So who else in BN is going to be in his cabinet? Once you join the dark side there is no turning back.

    Response: THINK Anwar is adopting and applying a few of the 36 maneuvers of the Sun Zi Art of War. Time and History will reveal the Hard Truths:

    1. Loot a burning house: When a country is beset by internal problems, such as disease, famine, CORRUPTION, and CRIME, it is poorly-equipped to deal with an outside threat. Keep gathering internal information about an enemy. If the ENEMY is in its weakest state, ATTACK them WITHOUT MERCY and ANNIHILATE them to PREVENT FUTURE TROUBLES.
    2. Hide a knife behind a smile: Charm and ingratiate oneself with the ENEMY. When their TRUST is GAINED, MOVE AGAINST THEM IN SECRET.
    3. Sacrifice the plum tree to preserve the PEACH TREE: There are circumstances where short-term objectives must be SACRIFICED in order to GAIN a the LONG-TERM GOAL! This is the scapegoat strategy where someone suffers the consequences so that THE REST DO NOT!
    4. Tossing out a brick to lure a jade gem: Bait someone by making them believe they gain something or to just make them react to it(“toss out a brick”)to obtain something valuable from them in return(“get a jade gem”)!
    5. Defeat the enemy by capturing their CHIEF: If the enemy’s army is STRONG but is allied to the COMMANDER only by MONEY, superstition, or threats, TARGET the LEADER! If the COMMANDER falls, the rest of the army will disperse or JOIN ONE’S SIDE! If they are allied to the leader through loyalty, BEWARE, as the army can continue to fight on after their death out of vengeance!
    6. Feign MADNESS abut KEEP YOUR BALANCE: Pretend to be incompetent to CREATE CONFUSION about one’s INTENTIONS and MOTIVATIONS. Lure the opponent into underestimating one’s ABILITY until THEY DROP THEIR GUARD!
    Anyway, Malaysia Boleh and Jia Yu!

    Are you describing Anwar or Zahid? A man who is facing numerous court cases has manipulated various political parties and is now a cabinet member. No other political party in Malaysia will have appointed him as deputy PM except for Anwar.So Zahid courted Anwar and has become deputy PM though Barisan performed the worst in its political history. Anyway in time all will be revealed.

    So,the coalition is still intact.
    Anwar will be the best PM malaysians ever had,time will tell.

    Response: Great and insightful comments. Btw NOTICE something STRANGE and FUNNY about the BEHAVIOR of Mai Hum. When Dr M became a 2nd Time PeeM in 2018, Mai Hum RUSHED macham like a Mad Dog over to Puki Jaya to congratulate and shake the smelly and filthy hands of Dr M who proceeded to give him a lukewarm reception! Contrast that to Mai Hum’s ARROGANT and DAFT Behavior when Anwar become the 10th PM of Malaysia. Mai Hum just casually asks Anwar to VISIT Sinkapore as and when Anwar is FREE!

  • Feedback:

    A Very spectacular family.
    3 MPs in Parliament to serve the people of Malaysia,
    Both husband and wife hold ex post holder as Deputy Prime Ministers of Malaysia.
    Never in the history of Malaysia, a family feats no family can achieved and a record that no family could break. Family with 3 in 1

    Further to this:

    Never in World history that it took 2 prime ministers of Malaysia to put Anwar into prison on a similar charges. Coincidentally, Both ex Prime Ministers are fated and “in shock ” to be in this dilemma state with a confused state of mind .
    Karma took its lightning course.

    Well , well. The 1st ex prime minister have lost his legacy as commander or King maker of Malaysia politics . He never anticipated and envision even after 2018 election. Supposed to past the baton to Anwar to be the Prime Minister. Too arrogant and too proud. Collapsing the chance of Anwar to be Prime Minister. His name will go down into Malaysia history, for being the 1st ex prime minister who could not polled even 10 % of the vote. Further losing his election poll deposit. None of the 158 candidates of his newly formed party won , ironically a record breaking feat. This include his son, Mukhriz losing his election bid. He will forever remember and bring this experience and regret GE 15 even when his Judgement Day arrived. Strange to see how Karma take its course – believe it or not.

    Ironically and Strange . the other ex prime minister is in prison for the worst corruption scandals in history while his wife is charge and found guilty of corruption. With the ex prime minister step son , Riza Shahriz Abdul Aziz involved in lavishing the corrupted Treasury money. Opposite of the good deeds of Anwar family. One family ( 3 ) working on the brighter side of Malaysia. While the other family ( 3 ) working on the darker side. Even to the extend of no mercy treatment while Anwar was imprisoned. With the famous ” Black Eye ” trademark and brutally assaulted without giving a proper bed in prison. Have to sleep on the floor . Anwar family Pleaded but the plea have turned and gone to deaf ears.The family have to endure the suffering, slander, curse and torment on Malaysia history record in the internet.

    No family in Malaysia would like to experience or to go through this terrible Journey of Life of Anwar and his family. Give up .. NO… . . Yet, the family shouldered on to serve the people of Malaysia. An explanatory example to follow .. never to give up HOPE. The enemies who have laid their dirty hand on Anwar have never in their wildest dream that this Special man will be the 10th ( 1 )Prime Minister of Malaysia.

    Anwar family feat will go into history in many years to come.
    After going through all , Anwar being elected as the 10th ( 1 ) Prime Minister of Malaysia.

    Find me a family in Malaysia that words cannot be comprehend . Except for the tears of Joy… and their family ❤️ heart compressed with vacuum of suffering are release and freed.

    The Almighty have very well answered the Anwar family prayers even in their heart. Bless the Anwar family and granted the best Dream come through to serve the people of Malaysia.

    Bare in mind, Anwar family could join back UmNo to enrich themselves but Anwar choose the path of righteousness and justice
