ANOTHER by-election is looming in Penanti, Penang, following the resignation of former Penang Deputy Chief Minister 1 Mohammad Farius Khairuddin as the state assemblyman on April 16.
It will be the sixth by-election after last year’s March 8 general election, three of which due to resignation of PKR representatives. The Penanti by-election will not be the last in Penang as another PKR Penang leader and MP is expected to resign.
It has been made known that there are two PKR state leaders who are involved in connection with taking bribes from quarry operators in Penanti, Bukit Mertajam. The media had exposed the name of one of them while the identity of the other leader had been kept secret by Anwar Ibrahim.
Fairus who claims that he was framed by his own party friends had threatened to expose “inside stories” of the party and the state government if they did not clear his name.
Well, this is an interesting development. I believe there is a lot of filth and dirt that Fairus wants to clean up in public about his boss Anwar and Lim Guan Eng. He would not have issued the threat if he was not there with them.
If you want to know, the other PKR Penang leader who has been implicated in the corruption along with Fairus is TAN TEE BENG, the MP for Nibong Tebal. He is the son of the former MPPP and Penang Gerakan president Datuk Tan Gim Hwa. Talks are rife that Tee Beng may also be charged for working in cohort with the quarry operators in covering up their illegal activities.
The people are tired with by-elections which are not doing any good to improve the country’s economy. While Najib is trying his level best to steer the country to economic recovery, political stability and build efforts to realise the 1Malaysia concept, his nemesis in PKR is busy politicking and finding ways to disrupt peace and stability of our country.
Well, I hope the rakyat will tell Anwar that enough is enough. The Penanti by-election is the best place for them to snub him.
