Pas backs Anwar for PM: Hatta


Pas treasurer Hatta Ramli has stressed that his party is firmly behind Anwar’s bid for the premiership.

I had never heard Hatta speaking in public until last night. I must say he came across as one of the more level-headed and sober Pas leaders, and immediately struck a rapport with the crowd.

Anwar is poised to take over the government, God willing.

Mahathir can spend his retirement overseas.Enough is enough.

May the best person be chosen for the best job
Regardless of sex, race, colour or creed
Afterall we all want the right person to fit the need
Let rational wise people make the choice and not just any emotional mob

Dr Hatta is an Anwar loyalist and a PKR/PAS mould like many PAS leaders such as PAS Sec. General K. Jaafar, Dr Dzulkifly Ahmad, Dr Lo’lo Ghazali, Saari Sungib. Many of them were KeADILan stalwarts.
