A huge crowd turned up to hear top leaders of the Pakatan Rakyat speak about their plans for the future now that they have unanimously rejected an offer from Prime Minister Najib Razak to form a unity government.
“Umno has failed to bring real unity to the people of Malaysia. Pakatan has decided to reinforce our commitment to each other and together bring about the collapse of the Umno-Barisan Nasional government,” PAS president Hadi Awang told the crowd at the Kelana Jaya Stadium in Selangor.
Despite being a weekday and recent police crackdowns on other Pakatan ceramahs including the DAP’s 43rd anniversary dinner, some 10,000 people turned up at the rally featuring Hadi, DAP’s Lim Kit Siang and PKR adviser Anwar Ibrahim.
They came to see and hear for themselves what the top trio had to say. And they were not disappointed.[more]
