So finally, Sept 16 has arrived. Is this the day of reckoning or the day would pass by without any significant announcement? Anwar Ibrahim has said that he has enough MPs to form the new federal government while the PM has dismissed it as a big bluff. Has Anwar Ibrahim taken his supporters for a ride with empty promises of political utopia or is the Barisan Nasional in for a huge surprise? Even if there are not enough crossovers, is there a first batch of defectors? Anwar Ibrahim has scheduled a press conference at 2pm, the MCA central committee is meeting on the ISA arrests at 1pm and Zaid Ibrahim has called for a press conference at 11am. About the same time, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah is talking to reporters. And even Ahmad Ismail has a press conference in Penang at 3.30pm. The SAPP is meeting tomorrow to decide on its position in the BN. Watch this space.
