As reported in the Opposition mouthpiece Malaysiakini, a portal that is seeking millions of public funds for their posh new building somewhere in PJ, Nurul seems to be more attracted to Umno than PKR.
Nurul' wish list - by Opposition mouthpiece Malaysiakini
PKR vice-president Nurul Izzah Anwar has listed several pertinent issues which should be raised during the Umno general assembly to prove it is not only concerned with the centralisation of economic spoils and keeping selected individuals in power.Topping the Lembah Pantai MP’s list was former Kuala Lumpur CID chief Mat Zain Ibrahim’s statutory declaration, which contained allegations of wrongdoing by Attorney-General Abdul Gani Patail (right) with regard to the Batu Puteh dispute.
Calling on BN to give this matter serious attention, she said: “The issue concerns the (alleged) violation of our nation’s sovereignty by one of our citizens.”
Following this, the PKR leader said Umno must also raise the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPPA), which can lead to economic colonisation.
“In view of this, I recommend that Umno raise the issue of forming a Parliament Select Committee regarding the TPPA and also debate the demand that Parliament be given the power to ratify the agreement before it is inked,” she added.
Number three on Nurul’s list are the Sulu incursion in Sabah as well as the murder and abduction of Taiwanese tourists in that state.
Apart from this, she also wanted the Umno assembly to focus on the issuing of identity cards to foreigners as well as the allegations that countries like the US and Singapore are conducting espionage activities on Malaysia.
“These issues must not only be debated, but Umno must vehemently condemn them,” she said.
Its quite an irony for the Opposition leader's daughter to publicly voice her wish list for Umno. Could it be hidden love and affection for the party that made her family rich and famous?
It seems Nurul has resigned to the fact that only Umno, the party in which her father was a powerful politician over a decade ago, could make her wishes come true.
Nurul must have been reminded that it was Umno that once nurtured her street demonstration savvy father Anwar Ibrahim and turned him into a sane politician until power, greed and flamboyance got the better of him.
I suspect mummy cum PKR president Datin Seri Wan Azizah must have reminded Nurul that it was actually Umno that fed her family and sent her and her siblings to top grade learning institutions.
So, I hope Umno would view Nurul's wish list in a positive light and email her a membership form. Who knows she could be one of the speakers in the next Umno General Assembly.
I'm sure many could understand why Nurul did not draw up a wish list for PKR.
Nurul's father too had a pretty long WISH LIST… his own wish list while Tun Ghaffar was still deputy president of Umno.
YOU forgot what Anwar did to the late Tun Ghaffar?
