Yesterday, PKR’s Rafizi Ramli outlined how his party planned to make Anwar Ibrahim the prime minister even though the PKR de facto leader is presently incarcerated.
The party vice president explained that if Pakatan Harapan takes over the government, the coalition would first make current parliamentary Opposition Leader Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail interim prime minister, which has been agreed by DAP and Parti Amanah Negara.
Rafizi spelled out that Wan Azizah, who is PKR president and Anwar’s wife, would then help her spouse to be released from prison and a by-election would be held to make Anwar a Member of Parliament, and subsequently PM.
Rafizi also stressed that the only reason Anwar was imprisoned was because he had been “victimised by political enemies”.
The Pandan MP also shot a warning to his party leaders to always remember Anwar as he was the one who helped them rise in their political careers.
“When we go back to our constituencies, we are indebted to Anwar. If it wasn’t for him, we won’t have our seats”, he added.
That's good but first, the opposition bloc will have to win GE14. Don't screw it up!
On Sunday, champions Celtic beat Hearts 2-0 to become the first team to complete a Scottish top-flight season unbeaten in 118 years.
Leigh Griffiths (50) and Stuart Armstrong (76) secured a thirty-fourth win of the campaign for Brendan Rodgers' side, who were then presented with the Scottish Premiership trophy.
And Celtic with 34 wins and 4 draws join Arsenal (2003-04) and Juventus (2011-12) in being unbeaten over a 38-game league season. What an amazing achievement!
On the same day too, Liverpool finished in fourth place and secured their return to the Champions League with a solid 3-0 win over Middlesbrough in this last EPL match of the season.
Georginio Wijnaldum drove an unstoppable effort in at the near post in the forty-fifth minute. Five minutes later, Philippe Coutinho kept his cool to bend a 25-yard free-kick round the Middlesbrough wall and into the back of the net. And six minutes after that, Wijnaldum nodded into Adam Lallana's path on the edge of the area and the midfielder slotted home.
