Anwar’s imminent road trip Corrected on 27 Aug 2008 at 3.00pm
In our haste to get the story out on the night of 26 Aug 2008 when the Permatang Pauh by-election results were announced, we were unable to do a quote check with Centre for Public Policy Studies director Tricia Yeoh about her analysis of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim potentially forming a new government.
As a result, we missed out on the nuances of her argument and mistakenly quoted her as saying: “Various institutions will be dismantled; the heads of prominent agencies such as Bank Negara will be changed; and there’s also the response of the Royalty to consider… this [shift] will affect different pillars of society, and also private sector conglomerates.”
What she meant was: “A change in government would have an immediate impact on various institutions; the heads of prominent agencies such as Bank Negara would have to consider their relationship with a new government should this take place; and there’s also the response of the Royalty to consider… this [shift] will affect different pillars of society, including private sector conglomerates.”
We regret our oversight.

We regret the error.
