Exciting weeks ahead
An exciting week awaits Malaysians. DSAI has served notice that he would be announcing plans for a by-election and has again said that Sabah and Sarawak MPs from the Barisan Nasional would be defecting to the Pakatan Rakyat. In short - there would be a by-election, widely speculated to be Bandar Baru Kulim, which is located next to Permatang Pauh - and possible defections. Anwar is saying his Sept 16 plan to form a new federal government is on track. So far, the police and the Attorney General's Office have kept mum on the sodomy allegations against Anwar. Will there be more fresh details from the investigations? If there are new developments, how would that affect his by-election campaign plans? For the next one week or two, it look set to be turbulent.
