Replaying the 1998 Script.
Character assasination has been proven effective in political or neo-political movements in Malaysia. This can be seen in many of Malaysian politician history. The fact of the matter is, none of our politician has the guts to stand up when they are being attacked by their enemies.
Anwar Ibrahim is an exception to this particular issue. Ever since his fall from grace in UMNO, and being cast out from the government by Tun Dr Mahathir, Anwar has turned a blind eye over the accusation of homosexuality and corruption that was said to have taken place during his era as the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia.
As a leader of the people, Anwar did not fall down and die like most politician would be after failing to take the top post of the country. The like of Razaleigh Hamzah, Musa Hitam, Ghafar Baba and many others who tried to chellenge Tun Mahathir's verdict was treated as an outcast and regarded as an enemy of not only the administration but also the people of the country. Anwar Ibrahim stood tall against all these accusation and become one of the legendary politician in Malaysian political history.
We know now that his conviction to save Malaysia is much more than being a political leader. Anwar is a smart and talented leader not only for his followers but also for his country.
We know that almost all of the good ideas that Najib has brought fourth comes from Anwar Ibrahim himself. Even the Tun would not have the strength to challenge Anwar Ibrahim.
As a Malaysian we must welcome change. A good change not only for ourselves, but also for future generation to come.
Now UMNO do not have anything to pitch against Anwar Ibrahim. It is clear that Anwar himself is engaging the rakyat not only with a promise, but also with a vision that the Pakatan Rakyat would make a better Malaysia rather than the Barisan Nasional government.
