DR WAN AZIZAH'S DECISION TO VACATE SEAT FOR HUSBAND, ANWAR IBRAHIM AFTER APRIL 15, 2008?


Parti KeAdilan Rakyat candidate for Pematang Pauh Parliamentary seat, Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail , who is the current inccumbent has been quoted as saying that she will give way for her husband, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim after April 15, 2008, so that Anwar could contest for this parliament seat. Anwar Ibrahim had been barred from contesting in any elections due to his 'conviction' and it expires on April 15, 2008.
One of the reasons for calling the general elections before April 15, was to not to allow Anwar to contest in this elections. Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was the former Deputy Prime Minister under Tun Dr Mahathir's regime. Anwar was also Deputy chief of the Barisan Nasional then.
The question now post is whether is it fair for anyone to give way for Anwar?
The answer, only the voters from that area could answer.
It seems that Anwar seems to be campaigning everywhere for the Opposition. Anwar is also fully aware of the 'dirty' tactics that BN would use to cheat in this elections.
Whatever the circumstances it is all up to the rakyat to evaluate the situation and not depend on any person to question this call just to gain political mileage in the coming polls.
