Zaid: PM 'crazy' for two-thirds majority

Pakatan Rakyat coordinator Zaid Ibrahim has urged Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to stop 'poaching' PKR MPs and urged him to respect the democratic process. NONE"Why is he crazy for a two-thirds majority in Parliament? Currently, Barisan Nasional has enough seats to pass any law easily," said Zaid (left) at a hastily arranged press conference at his home today. "Do you think England is strong because they have a two-thirds (majority)? No! England never had a two-thirds majority." PKR has been rocked with three defections in as many weeks, prompting questions over the fate of the party and its leadership, particularly that of de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim. Assuming that the three defectors will vote in line with BN in the Dewan Rakyat, the coalition only needs seven more supporters to regain its coveted two-third majority in Parliament.
