Ibrahim Ali - what party next?

Independent MP Datuk Ibrahim Ali has finally admitted that he is looking for a party to join. This is no surprise to most Malaysians. The Pasir Mas MP said he could not serve his constituents effectively on his own. But the former Umno politician said he would decide in the next five or six months - presumably when the political scenario is clearer. In short, he would want to be on the government bench, one suspect.
The political maverick surprised everyone in the 2008 elections when he was allowed by PAS to contest under its banner. The decision did not go down well with PAS grassroots who questioned the move. Recently, he was accused of supporting the Barisan Nasional in the selection of the Dewan Rakyat Speaker. Next, he had a fight with DAP's Karpal Singh, which made him "more BN than the other BN MPs."
But Ibrahim is obviously aware that he has become a prized item given the speculations that there would be defections soon. Keeping his cards close to his chest, he also said he has good ties with PAS. No surprise that talk of an anti-hopping law has fizzled out. Both the BN and Pakatan are keeping their doors open, after all.

This fu#$er I.A. is not fit to be part of the Pakatan Rakyat team. He is what I would classify as a double headed snake, who is only loyal to himself. If he ever becomes part of P.R., I am very sure one day he will sell out P.R. and he will be a liability to P.R. Right now he already shows that he cannot be trusted. Give him to UMNO. People like him belongs there.

PKR-lah.
I think the party has broken away from the perception of being a single issue party, ie fighting for Anwar Ibrahim.
Over the years, it has collected a hodge podge of frustrated DAP members, ex-BN-ers and now, perhaps even disgruntled Sabahan and Sarawkian MPs.
So Ibrahim Ali will fit right in with this party that caters for anyone and everyone.

He is a King of Katak in our country. Orang Pasir Mas sepatutnya malu ada wakil rakyat seperti dia - Hina OKU, malukan Pakatan Rakyat. Pernah maki hamun Anwar Ibrahim dalam mesyuarat MT UMNO di PWTC. Percayalah, Anwar tidak akan maafkan si katak ini sampai khiamat.

BuT Anwar Ibrahim -- the great messiah -- is from ABIM/PAS > UMNO > PKR. Also his buddies from ABIM/PAS/UMNO also pindah ke PKR.

I am afraid Anwar may sell out the rakyat....

The best way to treat Ibrahim Ali is just to ignore him. He is not worth our attention.

This froggie should be left to rot in the Parliament as his trademark stinks.He would do anything for his selfish gain and I believe he is waiting for a chance to go back to BN.Pas had make a grave mistake to allow him to stand on their ticket in the recent GE.Now,you see the true colour has appeared and I hope Pakatan Rakyat would not allow this traitor to join them or else he would create problems for them.

my bet is he'll re-join Umno. that way he'll get away with everything even for making fun of the disabled community.

Ibrahim Ali have his own view. Do not simply criticize him. He is after all elected by Pasir Mas peoples.
