Getting close with DSAI









Malaysian Opposition Leader Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim (DSAI) made a brief visit to Sibu and Sarikei recently. He was here to announce and accept the joining of an independent state assemblyman, Mr. Gabriel Adit into his Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR). Mr. Adit of Ngemah near Sibu also brought along about 12,000 of his followers, the majority of whom are Ibans.I managed to get close to DSAI when he officially declared open the Sarikei Branch on November 16,2008.

This news is not carried by the major media, except malaysiakini. May be Anwar has the number! who knows. I guess Keadilan landing in Sibu can be a threat to both SUPP and DAP, if DAP and Keadilan do not work well togther. I think they should go under Pakatan Rakyat instead of emphasising on individual party

anonymous: That is exactly what I also think of SUPP and DAP.More than 3,000 people turned up to witness Gabriel Adit's official entry to PKR and also listened to DSAI's speech. The majority of them were Ibans.A new era could be in the making in Sarawak's politics.

bengbeng:They invited me to take photos of the function in Sarikei at the last minute.It was DSAI's first visit to Sarikei.
