IN my article on Thursday, October 9, 2008 Malaysiakini : ANWAR TO TAKE OVER. NOT NAJIB ? argue very well what would happen in 5 months to come. Today in THE STAR newspaper appears an updated date for Pakatan Rakyat to wrest control of the Federal government.


Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has set yet another deadline for Pakatan Rakyat to wrest control of the Federal government.

Now, he says it will happen before the end of the year. “It is not like something I will allow to linger for one or two years. The momentum will continue when the Parliament goes into session on Monday,” he told a large crowd during a rally at Padang Perdana here on Thursday night.

He repeated his assertion that he had the numbers to form the new government. Anwar said the “takeover” approach would be peaceful because Malaysia could not afford the Thai or Filipino mob style.

Although his speech fired the crowd into wanting more, Anwar stopped short of detailing his “takeover” modus operandi, saying it would remain a secret until the time was right. Anwar said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s decision to step down by March and hand over to his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would not halt the takeover plan.

Speaking in English for a foreign media in attendance, Anwar said he was addressing the crowd at a critical time in the country’s history with the global economic crisis happening and Najib’s ascension as prime minister.

Anwar also predicted that the global economic crises would be worse than the Asian financial crises of 1998/1999, saying economists believe it would be similar to the Great Depression of the 1930s.

PKR strategic planning director Saifuddin Nasution Ismail later said Anwar had mailed to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong a copy of the letter sent to Abdullah on Sept 16.

Please refer the below article as well because it did mention about global economics crisis on whether Anwar will be able to face the global financial crisis if he becomes our prime minister. Friday, October 10, 2008 Malaysiakini : CAN NAJIB or ANWAR BE A GOOD FINANCE MINISTER ?
