Anil,

What is your opinion of Kuasa Ketiga?

No guarantee that those indie candidates can leap like frogs later?

Unfortunately, talks like this tend to get boring easily after an hour or such, especially in an afternoon, better for Social Activists and Civil Societies to debate PH State excos based on their respective portfolio (provided they are manly enough to attend)
Would love to see a Anil vs Zairil (Kerja Raya) debate on the PTMP to find out who has the better reasoning !

Penang Forum should welcome Tuan Ibrahim of PAS the new Environmental Minister (regardless of his qualifications) to counter Penang Transport Plan and the three Artificial Islands. Salma could invite Tuan Ibrahim to her next meeting.

Penang Forum claims to be apolitical and a voice of civil society yet a senior member of Penang Forum has been doing speaking engagements with Gerakan, which is an opposition party which once ruled Penang as part of BN. Another speaker, Zikrullah Ismail is a PAS youth leader from Bayan Baru.

Syahredzan Johan, who is party advisor Lim Kit Siang’s political secretary, said the anti-Malay perception did not start post-GE14. It is a narrative that has been repeated for decades, so much so that it has become ingrained in the collective psyche of the Malay community.
