More than 31? Hopefully not bluffing!

The following report if from Malaysiakini -

Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim insisted he has in excess of 31 government defectors and call on Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi not to implement emergency rule during the takeover.


At a packed press conference at 2pm today, he urged the ruling Barisan Nasional to commit to a peaceful handover of the government and not resort to emergency rule.

“We want a peaceful transition. We hope that Barisan will not put up emergency rule to stop MPs from going to Parliament or arrest (government) MPs or stop them from joining Pakatan Rakyat,” he said.

He has sought a meeting with Abdullah to show him the list of names of defectors and to discuss a smooth handover.

Anwar will need at least 31 defectors from BN and perhaps over 40 to form a stable Pakatan Rakyat government.

Hopefully he is not bluffing! The rakyat are getting a bit impatient!
