PORT DICKSON: PKR president Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the revelation made by Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman proved that he had a strong majority to form the government before.

Referring to Tajuddin's revelation about the existence of a statutory declaration (SD) in support of Anwar as the next prime minister, he said he was ridiculed after making the claim in the wake of the collapse of the government led by former prime minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin in Sept 2020.

"Back then, I mentioned that I had strong and convincing support (to form the government), but many mocked me instead.

"I then decided not to say more because it involved the palace (Anwar had wanted to present the numbers to the the Yang di-Pertuan Agong). 

"And now, out of nowhere, the SD (claim) resurfaced. Alhamdulillah, it unravelled by itself."

Anwar said he received messages from leaders who hoped the matter would not be prolonged.

"I replied that it wasn't me who prolonged (the matter). I was not the one who made the revelation," he told reporters after attending an appreciation ceremony for SPM achievers 2021 in Port Dickson.

Anwar, who is Pakatan Harapan (PH) chairman, also claimed that the SDs in support of him to become the next prime minister came with a request to discontinue the court cases faced by certain leaders.

"Not all (SD) went through me, there are those that were sent directly to the palace. These included the 15 from Umno."

He said although the total number of SDs was 120, it was PH's stand not to accept SDs from former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi (Umno president).

"With 118 (remaining) SDs, I (still) had the numbers to become the next prime minister. But I was not prepared to compromise on the independence of the judiciary," he said.

Anwar said Umno then nominated a different prime ministerial candidate when he did not agree to the conditions.

"Do we need to sacrifice our judicial independence and our firm stand against corruption just to become a prime minister? The answer is clear."

Lest we forgot, let me set the record straight! It was Zahid that promised Anwar as replacement for Mohiden 11 months ago! Anwar immediately made a press conference stating that he has the convincing majority!
When Zahid was pressured by other Umno leaders to backoff after getting SDs and presented to Agong, Zahid stood in front of Umno assembly with that big fat lie 'No Anwar, No Dap, No Bersatu'!
Najib was not even aware of Zahid plot! Najib and Tok Mat tried to get rid of Zahid 2 years back!
So now Anwar is blaming Najib for something he is not even part of the plot!

And of course the counter plot where Mohiden unite Pas and Umno to propose Ismail Sabri as his replacement! That's how we got Ismail Sabri as our most lamest PM in history! PM Sabri has zero idea how to manage this country! Instead he goes around with his out of touch 'Bahasa' agenda that becomes laughing stock among Asia!

Zahid Hamidi alone created so much political divide and brought down PH administration and PN administration! And now Zahid is the main culprit in bringing down Umno itself! Take out Zahid and perhaps Umno can see some peace! Maybe!

If Najib and Tok Mat had the courage to purge Zahid 2 years ago, perhaps, Tok Mat already be in strong position to take down Ismail Sabri! And if Tok Mat becomes PM, then of course he will repay Najib by swipping Najib's convinction on the carpet!
But no! Tok Mat and Najib backed off after getting majority support from Umno leaders!

And now Umno has 3 or 4 or 5 lions on the top of the mountain! Better dissolve Umno! Then this factions can set up their own party!

Because post GE15, Umno will still be damn divided that they have zero time to manage Malaysia! And perhaps we may even see this new government collapse!

Then again, it's not so secret Mohiden too want to see Umno been dissolve! I mean, come on! For ROS to dissolve Umno now is legal! Padan muka is the right word for Umno delaying it's election! I mean, i think rakyat too will feel relief if Umno is total goner for good!

It's not so secret too that Hisham is going for presidency if Umno force to do it's election this year! But i think Hamzah knows, dissolving Umno is much better option! So you see, Umno demise will contribute to some stability!
