Pakatan pembangkang bentuk Kabinet bayangan

KUALA LUMPUR, 11 Mac (Hrkh) - Pakatan pembangkang diketuai Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim akan membentuk Kabinet bayangan sebagai alternatif kepada kerajaan BN yang berada dalam keadaan tidak stabil.
Sehubungan itu, Anwar berkata beliau akan mengemukakan cadangan tersebut kepada pemimpin Parti KeADILan Rakyat, PAS dan DAP dalam satu pertemuan tidak lama lagi.

Pada sidang akhbar di pejabatnya di Petaling Jaya sebentar tadi, Anwar berkata beliau akan mengusahakan suatu perjanjian bertulis membabitkan ketiga-tiga parti itu.

Pada Pilihan Raya Umum (PRU) ke-12, 8 Mac lalu, BN kehilangan dua pertiga majoriti di Parlimen. BN hanya meraih 140 kerusi, manakala pembangkang memperolehi 82 kerusi.

Daripada 222 kerusi Parlimen seluruh negara, 51 daripadanya adalah dari Sarawak dan Sabah.

Walaupun BN memenangi pilihan raya dan membentuk kerajaan kata Anwar, hakikatnya 52 peratus pengundi di Semenanjung menolak mereka.

Ditanya mengenai kemungkinan berlaku 'cross over' atau pembelian wakil rakyat, Anwar yakin anggota Parlimen pembangkang tidak akan melompat menyertai BN.

Tegasnya, beliau juga tidak akan berusaha untuk membeli atau meminta mana-mana wakil rakyat BN untuk menyertai KeADILan, PAS atau DAP.

Beliau turut menolak kemungkinan isterinya, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail yang juga Presiden KeADILan mengosongkan kerusi Parlimen Permatang Pauh untuk memberikan laluan kepadanya.

"Saya tidak fikir itu perlu, beliau (Wan Azizah) memenanginya dengan majoriti yang lebih besar," katanya sambil menolak kemungkinan pilihan raya kecil diadakan.

Ditanya bagaimana hendak berperanan sebagai pemimpin pembangkang jika tidak berada di Parlimen, Anwar tidak menafikan beliau mahu kembali ke Dewan Rakyat.

Bagaimanapun pada masa ini, beliau akan menjalankan tugasnya membantu kerajaan-kerajaan negeri yang dimenangi pembangkang.

Yang penting katanya, beliau akan menumpukan untuk memperkukuhkan ekonomi lima negeri yang diterajui iaitu Kelantan, Kedah, Pulau Pinang dan Selangor.

"Sebenarnya kita menguasai enam negeri, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur juga kita kuasai," ujarnya.

Menurut Anwar kelima-lima negeri yang diterajui BA akan menumpu agenda memperbaiki taraf hidup masyarakat berbilang kaum sama ada Melayu, Cina, India dan bangsa-bangsa lain. - lanh

PKR leader denies crossovers of reps
Soon Li Tsin | Mar 11, 08 4:59pm
Certain members and elected representatives of PKR have been courted by other parties, but no one has crossed over to date, said de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim.

“Yes, they have approached us, I don’t deny that. Once we’re ready (with details), you will be the first to know,’ he said without revealing more information during a press conference at his office in Petaling Jaya today.

“There is no question of anybody crossing over. They were all with me last night. We have control in five states and 50 percent of the support in the peninsula, so it doesn’t make sense to ever suggest that we would join Umno.

“We will not (make an) offer (to) anyone to join us (either) with millions of ringgit or with expectations, let me make that very clear. We are not Umno or Barisan (Nasional). (But) we have evidence that our members and state assemblypersons are being offered (a crossover).”

Asked if the three opposition parties would consider a merger, Anwar said it was premature but that they are involved in preliminary discussions.

“(There is an) understanding that there may be a more concrete and cohesive working relationship (between the parties). We don’t need one party as such, we need one cohesive force,” he said.

On the idea of establishing a shadow cabinet, Anwar said: “Yeah we’re looking at it, that is a suggestion that we will have to work on. I think it would be a good proposition.”

PKR, DAP and PAS swept 82 of the 222 parliamentary seats - the best opposition showing to date - but more crucially, won almost 50 percent of the popular vote in the elections on Saturday.

They also took four more states - Penang, Selangor, Kedah and Perak - and retained Kelantan, contributing to BN’s biggest setback in 12 general elections.

‘Don’t destroy records’

Quizzed on the selection of the new Perak menteri besar, Anwar said it is “almost resolved” but said the position should remain with a Malay candidate.

“We are guided by the (state) constitution. We will of course protect the Malay position politically and economically, we’re bound by that. We are committed (to the position) that the rights of the Malays are protected.

“In doing so, we will ensure we are just and we’ll have adequate accommodation of non-Malays in our state government and there will be just and fair representation.”

Throughout the press conference, Anwar kept journalists guessing about his political future when he failed to give a direct answer as to whether he would run for Parliament when the ban on his active involvement expires on April 15.

“I’ll contest in any empty seat (laughs). I don’t know yet. My mind now is focused on assisting (in setting) up the new state governments and (on seeing) that the coalition works well.

“I’m not saying that is not important, I am eager to get back into Parliament. I will attend the first session from the public gallery,” he joked.

Anwar was also quick to caution Selangor officials that destroying state records is a crime.

“We’re not here out of vindictiveness, vendetta or on a witch-hunt (with past officials). We are here to govern effectively,” he added.

“So I’m issuing a caution that if they commit a crime, they are going to have to pay for that. But those in the right should not worry.”
