KUALA LUMPUR – OPPOSITION leader Anwar Ibrahim chose a significant theme to speak about at a rally which he used to launch his campaign to return to Parliament.
‘Yes, I am a Malay agent, I am a Chinese agent, I am an Indian agent, and I am an agent of the people,’ he told the cheering thousands who gathered at the rally in Penang on Sunday.
It was a clever message, and to Datuk Seri Anwar’s credit, also a consistent one. Over the last few years, he has been honing his image as a multiracial leader of Malaysia.
