Unfair By-Election At Permatang Pauh

What the hell is going on? Its really unfair how the way the government is reacting towards the By-election. I was shocked to see the news in Malaysiakini, which reads like this :

Deputy police chief Ismail Omar confirmed the Attorney-General's office had decided to charge Anwar and that he was required to appear in court at 10am tomorrow.

"The police have completed their investigations into the allegations of sexual misconduct involving Anwar Ibrahim according to the principles and the procedures of law within the country's legal system," he said in a statement.

Anwar has rejected the accusations which he says have been fabricated to prevent him from toppling the government, after landmark March elections that handed the opposition an unprecedented one-third of parliamentary seats.

"This charge is only possible on the orders from the prime minister, who today faces a confidence crisis and leadership struggle," he said.

Anwar said that Abdullah, who has faced calls to quit since March elections that handed the opposition unprecedented gains, was "desperate" and using the case "to cover up his failures and abuses."
All this while the police was taking its ample time to run the investigations, once By-election in Permatang Pauh appears, Everything hit the table fast. Bloody unfair isnt it? Anway, what else i can say, BARISAN NASIONAL is famous for its hanky panky works to take a man down or to gain victory. Even the by-election day is on tuesday, why not on sunday? Barisan Nasional is just too scared for Permatang Pauh!
