Tomorrow, Saturday, March 27, 2010 will witness the inaugural AGM of PERKASA to be launched by Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed at PWTC. From what has been reported in the media, some 10,000 members and supporters are expected to attend. This includes some notables from UMNO and several other Malay NGO groups. I just do not know whether PWTC can accommodate that large number of people and if it does, this gathering will be much larger than UMNO General Assembly. And I also wonder who is actually providing the funds to manage this entire affair.
I have earlier posted two articles relating to PERKASA formed by sacked former UMNO member Ibrahim Ali, now an Independent parliamentarian, whom I described as a failed politician from Kelantan. If one can recall, he is said to have won the Pasir Mas parliamentary seat in the March 2008 General Elections out of sympathy from his constituents who are predominantly PAS supporters. Had PAS fielded a candidate to contest against him, he would have lost. One should also recall that during a by-election held for Pengkalan Pasir, Ibrahim Ali who contested as an Independent candidate lost badly to a BN candidate, including losing his deposit money. He only managed to garner 415 votes.
I stand by what I have said in my earlier postings of Ibrahim Ali and PERKASA. If the government does give its tacit approval (and I sense that it does) that the formation of PERKASA is to protect and defend the Malay rights, then I would suggest that UMNO be disbanded henceforth, and PERKASA be form into a political party (taking over from UMNO) with Ibrahim Ali as its President. If this does happen, then I dare declare that the nation will be heading for disaster.
Let us all wait for the outcome of the AGM which is just a few hours away. And if the AGM proves to be a big success, I am not at all surprise that UMNO will open its arms to receive Ibrahim Ali back into its fold.
