Responding to Anwar’s call to ‘do battle‘ to win Sarawak starting next month Taib today questioned the credibility of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. From Bernama:

In raising doubts over Anwar’s credibility, especially as his September 16 deadline in which he had promised to form a new government did not materialise, Taib said, even the former’s attempt to concentrate on wresting power in the peninsula had yet to produce results.

“I don’t want to comment on people like that. Well, his (Anwar’s) credibilty is not that high when he said September 16 is his target date which he promised to be the date to form a new government,” Taib, who is also state BN chairman told reporters after chairing the weekly state cabinet meeting at Wisma Bapa Malaysia at Petra Jaya on Sunday.

“Are you going to put that in printing or you don’t want to put it in printing. Isn’t it true?,” he said when asked to comment on Anwar’s statement in his keynote address at the PKR national congress held in Shah Alam yesterday that his next takeover target was Sarawak.

On the same issue Anwar today asked the party’s leaders to make weekly trips to Sarawak to meet its aim to unseat the Barisan Nasional (BN) government in the state.

“Sarawak will be our next battleground before the Pakatan Rakyat takes over the federal government,” he said at a rally held in conjunction with PKR’s national congress here yesterday.
