Today is Malaysia Day. It is also September 16, the day Parti Keadilan Rakyat de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim is supposed to take over the leadership of the country from Umno president and Barisan Nasional chairman Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
Here's the Bernama report:
PETALING JAYA, Sept 15 (Bernama) -- Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim Monday night claimed that he had sufficient majority to form a new government.
He also claimed to have sent a letter to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Monday afternoon on the list of Barisan Nasional members of parliament who would cross over to Pakatan Rakyat.
However, Anwar who spoke before some 12,000 supporters at a 45th Malaysia Day celebration at the Petaling Jaya City Council Stadium in Kelana Jaya here, did not name the MPs involved.
Anwar, who is also the Opposition leader in parliament, said he would later be meeting the prime minister to discuss the change of government.
So, is today's Anwar's new dawn?
Can it possibly be?
