Permatang Pauh : Wan Azizah Fed Up With BN's Dirty Tricks

Source : Malaysiakini

Fed up with the disparaging personal attacks on her husband, PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, who has so far kept a dignified silence, slammed Barisan Nasional and Umno campaigners for waging an argot war on Anwar Ibrahim.

wan azizah permatang pauh by election 210808 02"What wrong has my husband done to the Malays, non-Malays and the country that he must be slandered and slaughtered with such scornful lies?" she asked some 200 single mothers at a PKR by-election gathering in Bukit Jelutong, Permatang Pauh yesterday evening.

Stressing that the personal attacks on her husband have affected her and her children deeply, the former Permatang Pauh member of parliament said the current hostile campaign waged on Anwar also revealed that Umno leaders have lost their conscience.

"They are not bothered that their sordid falsehoods are hurting my family," said Wan Azizah, who was close to tears as she went on to narrate her family's suffering during Anwar's six-year stay in Sungai Buloh prison on a graft conviction.

Her resignation late last month triggered the parliamentary by-election, which Anwar aims to win to return as an elected parliamentarian after a 10-year absence.

He faces Umno's Arif Shah Omar Shah and Akim president Hanafi Hamat in a three-cornered by-election.

There are more honest and good Malaysians than evil ones. They are not blind and deaf. They will bury (just to borrow Khairy's word) UMNO/BN so that healing of the country may start.

Yes telur dua rightly said.. this by election we have to choose between Anwar Ibrahim who represent HONESTY,TRUTH,GOOD GOVERNANCE & Umno who represent LIES,CHEATS,CORRUPTION & BAD GOVERNANCE.
The dirty tricks & slander against Anwar will backfire-the majority of Malaysians ( except those who are bribed like Saiful etc) stand with Anwar.
What about Altantuya murder ? Why aren't the Police asking Najib questions ,the submarine deals etc
where is the missing private Investigator who made statutory declaration that Najib knew Altantuya ?
What Justice is Malaysian justice when the Powerful & Mighty are not subject to the same law as the Ordinary Citizens ?
What Society are we inheriting when the Police & unjustified measures are being used to frame Anwar & others and used to detain Hindraf Leaders who are only seeking to redress discrimination against their poor race ?
Datin Wan Azizah & family the vast majority of Malaysians are with you
Anwar Ibrahim,we shall rejoice when Evil is defeated ! REFORMASI & REAL MERDEKA for all Malaysians !
