So PKR finally bit the bullet and sacked Zulkifli Noordin in a move that will go a long way in restoring the party’s credibility.
PKR is now set to reap the rewards after cleansing itself of some of those who seek to betray the rakyat’s mandate. Its journey to restore the people’s faith in the party can now begin with earnest.
In a way, Zul appeared to be doing his level best to invite this sacking, perhaps because he didn’t want to be seen as betraying the rakyat’s mandate by quitting. But the people know better.
Maybe he will eventually find his real home in Umno (or Perkasa?) after a stint as a “BN-friendly independent”. Who knows. And who really cares.
For many democracy-loving Malaysians, this must be a great day, what with the Penang government calling for local government elections. At least there is something to celebrate on the second anniversary of March 8.
Onwards to the Penang Forum tomorrow!
