Anwar met Ku Li over Putrajaya (Satu Konspirasi tumbangkan BN???)
The failure of his Sept 16, 2008 takeover bid did not deter Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim from continuing attempts to claim Putrajaya through crossovers, as he sought to entice Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, a leaked United States diplomatic cable said.
The cable added that Anwar’s efforts were “inconclusive” as the Kelantan prince was said to be eyeing the prime minister’s spot himself.
In the cable, US Ambassador James R. Keith told his government that the Opposition Leader had only altered his tone but not his goal or his tactics, and had even stayed in contact with then prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi through Khairy Jamaluddin before Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak took over in 2009.
PKR party leaders Tian Chua and R. Sivarasa purportedly confirmed this but added that Anwar had adopted a “lower key approach” after his failed Sept 16 plan.
“The prime minister’s circle — through Khairy — had approached Anwar regarding support for judicial reform measures that would be presented in Parliament soon as part of Abdullah’s parting legacy, according to Sivarasa and Tian Chua.
“The Opposition, however, was unlikely to support these measures because they did not represent meaningful changes.
“Talks with (Tengku) Razaleigh remain inconclusive because Razaleigh continues to insist on the prospective position of prime minister, while PKR estimates that Razaleigh could secure the crossover of only four or five Umno MPs,” said the cable, leaked by whistleblower site WikiLeaks.
Keith said he called on Ku Li on Oct 30, during which the latter also reported that Khairy, now Umno Youth chief, was acting as the go-between for Abdullah and Anwar.
The Malaysian Insider reported that Anwar refuted the report and said his meeting with Kul Li was merely to discuss “political issues.”
Anwar also denied that he contacted Abdullah through Khairy.
Khairy also denied that he met with Anwar to secure the Opposition’s support for Abdullah’s reform legacy.
Khairy, the Rembau MP, told The Malaysian Insider that he “never met Anwar” on behalf of his father-in-law as stated in the cable.
