“I am sad for Malaysia.”
So said former deputy premier and PKR advisor Anwar Ibrahim in response to his party’s defeat in the Ijok by-election.
“I have been talking about the fraudulent process all the while but I did not think it was going to be so bad … intimidation and blatant bribery … the whole conduct of the election today,” he said.
Top Keadilan leaders were absent when the results were announced. Anwar said the by-election was ridden with phantom voters and police harassment against the opposition.
“We will launch an official protest on a charge of fraudulent conduct of the election,” he said.
