Oh my god (pun intended)!
If the reports in the media are to be believed, PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ibrahim proclaimed that, “God has chosen her husband, Anwar Ibrahim, to lead Malaysians towards a better future, and there is no one else who could surpass his leadership strength.”
When I read this, the only reply that I could think of was – WOW!
I can agree that Anwar is a gifted speaker and charismatic leader. I can also agree that he has shown great strength to fight for his survival. However, I wouldn’t go as far as to say that he is anointed by God to lead his people to a better future.
Now, all we need is for Anwar to part the Red Sea and herald in a new era.
Honestly, I have always had this opinion that PKR was a party about one man – Anwar. And with the recent farce of an election and now this, I am starting to think that it is turning into a personality cult. Dangerous indeed.
According to TheStar, Izzah came out to say that, “We must differentiate between personality and principles that are brought by the personality. Only principles and not personality must be institutionalised in our party.” Now, that is something that I can respect. Regardless of how great Anwar may be, the party and struggle is more than just about him.
