PETALING JAYA: In a crowded press conference at the PKR headquarters today, Selangor Mentri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim announced Anwar’s candidacy for the Kajang by-election.
“I’m sure he doesn’t plan to topple me,” said Khalid, “he is only doing this to fill the void caused by MP Lee Chin Cheh suddenly vacating his seat! Shame that guy left after campaigning so hard to win office less than a year ago. It seems Lee like some other politicians, decided the best way to serve the people is by not being around.“
“Calling a by-election now is very inconsiderate,” said an opposition supporter, “I’m already far too angry dealing with rising prices and church bombings to have time to be furious about PKR’s political manoeuvring and internal bickering. There are only so many hours in the day to despair about the country’s future after all!”
A former Japanese flag stomper told FMN, “I can tell Anwar wants to be Selangor MB, he’s already denied it several times! He wont be Kedah MB, so he might actually have a genuine shot at taking over Putrajaya!”
“It’s a horrible feeling voting for something then getting something else,” said a Kanjang voter, “you would think after the General Election we would be used to political disappointment by now!”
