Is Anwar Ibrahim a sinking politician?

PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim announced that he would be the chairman of the Sabah and Sarawak PKR liaison committees to wrest the two states from the Barisan Nasional, especially with Sarawak facing a state election by 2011.

The announcement strongly indicated that he is using his position at the central level to control the PKR activities in the two states. It also shows that he has no confidence in the PKR leaders in both states especially Dominique Ng to lead the Sarawak PKR.

Ironically, to be truly the great political leader is to have quality of political influence and confidence in local leaders.

Look at history as a proof, the successful political leader must be well versed in getting support from the grassroots leaders in order to be successful in politics. He must have the outstanding ability to influence as well as motivate the supporters.

Undeniably, politics is a numbers game. The lack of political confidence as well as the support for the states leaders thus shows that Anwar’s failure as a political leader.

The question remains: Is Anwar Ibrahim a sinking politician?
