Although there is no big news of major defection yet – but the anxieties especially among BN MPs are heightening. Maximus Ongkili of PBS (one of the ‘Katak‘ party in Barisan Nasional) said the takeover plan would never happen and suggest ISA to be used against Anwar.
Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) deputy president Datuk Dr Maximus Ongkili said the opposition’s takeover plan would never happen.
“Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should apologise to the people of Malaysia for promoting and engaging in despicable political conduct. The Internal Security Act should be used against those wanting to overthrow the government through undemocratic means and cause instability and public chaos.
“We have confidence that the elected representatives would not want to be treated as pawns to be traded in the political market place for a pot of political porridge,” he said in reaction to Anwar’s failed attempt to lure MPs to defect by tomorrow, which is Malaysia Day.
Ongkili, who is science, technology and innovation minister, also reacted to Anwar’s demand for a meeting between PKR leaders and Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to discuss national unity and political stability. leadership,” Musa said.
I’m surprised by Maximus suggestion as it definitely not in tandem with the few BN leaders who have spoken against the used of ISA. Malaysiakini reported de facto Law Minister Zaid Ibrahim today threatened to resign if the government continues to use the Internal Security Act, which allows detention without trial, against any individuals.
