PGRM : The Reel Of Defection

by Jeff Phoon

Conclude recent headlines, a defection against BN will be started soon.

Perak Gerakan wants the party to pull out of Barisan Nasional in view of the coalition leaders adopting a political culture that garners support only from particular communities.
(Making the proposal at the state delegates' conference Sunday, Perak Gerakan chief Datuk Chang Ko Youn said about 80% of the delegates agreed with the issue.)

Chang, Gerakan Vice-President, who was re-elected Perak Gerakan chief after thrashing his opponent Liew Yiew Aw with a 175-vote majority said "We still see politicians playing race and religious issues and this is not good for the country,"

Perak Gerakan Wanita chief Datuk Tan Lian Hoe said party leaders had been closely monitoring the situation and the performance of Barisan leaders who had been using racial and religious issues to garner support from their members.
"This is not healthy for the country. It has created dissatisfaction among the grassroots and we are considering how such matters could affect us in Gerakan," said Tan, who is also national Gerakan Wanita chief.
Initial feedback from the delegates, she said, was that they were dissatisfied with Barisan leaders who used racial issues to garner support from their members.

Datuk Tan Lian Hoe is also holding a Deputy Minister in the Ministry of Information post in the current BN's government, who believed is preparing herself to be discipline-actioned by the party or even to be forced resigned by the BN's government, seems likely to have a strong confident in the exchanging of the government which leading to her recent movements.

More explosives phenomenon happened when the outspoken Dr. Toh Kin Woon, the then Penang states government's Exco-member, was seen to present at the PKR's by-election operation site and expressed his support to Anwar because the PKR leader will strengthen democracy and make the opposition's voice stronger in Parliament.

Gerakan acting president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon quashed talks of the party pulling out of Barisan.
Dr Koh said he would discuss the matter with party leaders, noting that there seemed to be differences in opinion among its members.
To leave Barisan or not does not arise now, as we are busy campaigning for the Permatang Pauh by-election,” he said.

And we foreseen that even the party's chief was pull-aside the party's major concern issue (which will determine the party's future) but to leave his "horses" to throw out several "touchstones" which searching for feedbacks either from party's members or other concern.

From here, he kick-start the defection. I don't think the party will wait until national delegates conference (NDC) in October to decide whether to pull out or remain in BN due to the result of the country opposition head (Anwar)'s by-election will be known on this August 26 soon. And I don't think "the people could later decide who they wanted to stay in power in the next general election" as prescibed by Dr Koh.

A BN's component party will finally defect and others will follow his step or not, we just see.....

Politics like dirty trick games; politicians alike swimming with the tide ! While we are inside muddy water, it's hard to see what is surrounding us! Shark? Ghost or gold? Danger? Threat or inducement? What do we expect? As an outsider able to observe things more clearly as [ the 3rd PARTY ] !
