KUCHING, 30 Nov 2008: Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud today questioned the credibility of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, who aims to unseat the Barisan Nasional (BN) in the next state elections due in 2011.
Taib said even Anwar’s attempt to wrest power from the federal government by 16 Sept failed to happen.
“I don’t want to comment on people like that. Well, his (Anwar’s) credibility is not that high when he said September 16 was his target date to form a new government,” Taib, who is also state BN chairperson told reporters after chairing the weekly state cabinet meeting.
Taib was asked to comment on Anwar’s statement during his keynote address at the PKR national congress in Shah Alam yesterday that the party’s next takeover target was Sarawak. — Bernama
