Updates: 5.20pm - It's an anti-climax after all. The no faith motion was rejected, there was no demo and Anwar refused to show up at the police station. Habis cerita.
KL has come to a standstill. The traffic and politics literally. The police have set up roadblocks at major roads leading to Parliament causing a massive traffic jam in the city. The spillover effects of the gridlock can be felt as far as Shah Alam and Petaling Jaya. Traffic is almost at a standstill as the cops prepare for the demonstration by supporters of Anwar Ibrahim. Anwar is expected to turn up at the KL police headquarters at 2pm to have his statement recorded over the sodomy allegations. But conflicting reports have surfaced over the last one hour. Negotiations are said to be taking place between lawyers of Anwar and the police now. But now, PKR officials are saying Anwar will not turn up. At Parliament, the Pakatan Rakyat MPs are tabling a motion of no confidence against the Prime Minister.
