About 12,000 people in Sarawak, including 6,000 supporters of Ngemah state rep Gabriel Adit, have applied to join PKR.

Their application forms were submitted to PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim at a huge dinner gathering in Sibu tonight which saw more than 4,000 people in attendance.

Also signing up with the opposition party is controversial former PRS Balleh division publicity chief, Beginda Minda.

He was forced to leave the state BN component party following his call on the chief minister and his deputy to step down.

Adit, 58, claimed that he had submitted the application forms for PKR membership from 6,000 of his supporters tonight.

The other 6,000 new applications were believed to be from former PRS members and non-party members.

YES, we are staring at the gathering clouds of an economic crisis. Sure, economic fundamentals are strong, as government ministers keep saying, but that’s only half the picture.

The other half is the financial scenario, as economic and financial principles are two different things. The sub-prime crisis that began in the US and western countries is essentially a financial problem. But in an interdependent world, a financial crisis in one place could result in an economic crisis in another.

KUALA LUMPUR: The prosecution has again tried to move the sodomy trial of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to the High Court.

The Sessions Court was to set a date for the trial yesterday after ruling against the prosecution’s application on Nov 7 to move the trial saying that the transfer certificate signed by Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail was invalid.

But Senior DPP Mohd Yusof Zainal Abiden told Judge S.M. Komathy Suppiah that the proceedings should be adjourned pending further orders from the High Court following the prosecution’s application to revise her decision.

High Court Justice Mohamad Zabi­din Mohd Diah has set Nov 20 and 21 to hear the application for the revision.

After the winding-up by the second finance minister on the budget debate at the committee level in the Dewan Rakyat on Nov 11, I felt compelled to write my two-cent worth of thought on our economy.

For a start, news about China’s stimulus package of US$586 billion, or RM2.1 trillion, not capable of counteracting the effect of the US-led slowdown and that the euphoric rally in the Asian bursas lasting only one day, which was Monday, are indeed very frightening.

The RM5 billion injection to shore up ‘undervalued stocks’ by ValueCap, as instructed by the finance minister, flies in your face and how much quicker, you thought, will it dissipate.

Opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim has announced the formation of a parliamentary caucus on the integrity and independence of the judiciary.

Speaking at a press conference in Parliament today, Anwar, who is also Permatang Pauh MP, said that the caucus will be established “notwithstanding the initiatives forwarded by Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to set up a judicial commission”.

“We have yet to see the papers (on the judicial commission) and I think it is appropriate for the caucus to elaborate on this issue,” he said, adding that the caucus will hold its first meeting tomorrow.

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 – Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has welcomed the appointment of Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Yusof, the Secretary-General of the Home Ministry, as the new chairman of the Election Commission (EC) replacing Tan Sri Abdul Rashid Abdul Rahman.

Anwar commended Abdul Aziz for his professional integrity and competence, saying: “He is quite highly regarded, that I know for certain,.”

However, he held a very cautious view as to Abdul Aziz’s ability to effect change to the public perception of the EC. He noted that the EC has been known to be “badly tainted”, referring no doubt to the increasing allegations against the election body under the helm of Abdul Rashid.

“We have to wait for his personal views that he, as chairman, will make and not as a secretary-general of a ministry,” Anwar said.
