The Staronline reports:
Datuk Zaid Ibrahim has quit the PKR deputy presidential race saying the party "leadership actively condone malpractices and electoral fraud to achieve its designed objectives." "I wish to announce my withdrawal as a candidate from the contest of deputy president of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and my resignation from all posts held in the party," said Zaid in a statement Monday.
This is bad news. If Anwar Ibrahim chooses to continue his "hidden" game plan I think he is making a terrible mistake, which will even adversely affect all of us, politically. Look at the mediocre results of the latest by-elections. Pakatan, very much depends on the support of the "fence-sitters". Put your act together, Anwar Ibrahim. The political climate is not in your favour right now.
