Katak Ibrahim Ali laughing? He shouldn't be

katak ibrahim ali
Why is Katak Ibrahim Ali (katak = frog) laughing? First, why is Ibrahim Ali commonly denigrated as a katak (frog). It was his habit of first wining an elected post with one party, then subsequently changing political party. That is, he, like a frog, jump from one party to another. Malaysians are particularly sore that he won the parliamentary seat of Pasir Mas on a PAS ticket(opposition) in the 2008 General Election, but subsequently leaped over to the much despised ruling Barisan Nasional.

So why is Ibrahim laughing? Because a significant number of Members of Parliament and State Assemblymen have removed them from PAS and subsequently joining newly formed Parti Amanah Negara, and another over to PKR intenting to form a new opposition coalition. So he claimed that his accusers have become katak themselves. So does that make Katak Ibrahim Ali "innocent"?

But Ibrahim Ali should wipe that smile on his face because these elected members didn't jump from an opposition party over to the ruling party. They jumped from PAS, component of the opposition coalition Pakatan Rakyat, but they intend to still continue as opposition in "Pakatan 2.0".

Their big difference from Katak Ibrahim Ali is that Katak Ibrahim Ali jumped from opposition party to that despised ruling party, a world of difference. So Katak Ibrahim Ali, you are still an incorrigible Katak.

Parti Amanah Negara is "PAS Asal". MPs no need to resign

PAS has been pushing for progressive members who joined the newly announced PAN (Parti Amanah Negara) to resign from their elected posts as MPs and ADUNs plus divorce their wifes.

This is my opinion. PAS members who contested in the 2013 General Elections contested and won while PAS was a component party of Pakatan Rakyat plus a manifesto that mentioned welfare state and which did not include Hudud. Voters voted for them because they contested on a PR "ticket".

When PAS reneged on the above, those who wants to continue with the Pakatan Rakyat spirit were thus forced to form a new party PAN that will continue to be a component party of PR, thus PAN is that original "PAS" (PAS Asal) which were with Pakatan Rakyat in 2013. Thus MPs and ADUNs of the newly formed PAN need not resign their elected posts nor divorce their wifes.

On the contrary, it is those MPs and ADUNs still remaining in PAS that need to resign as voters did not vote for them as an independent party and is no more that same PAS within the Pakatan Rakyat coalition.
