Anwar is responsible for the collapse of Pakatan Rakyat

Parti Keadilan Rakyat advisor Anwar Ibrahim has been forced to apologise for his wrong choice of candidates in the 2008 general election.

The emergence of his apology can be understood in the political context of recent longstanding tensions in the Pakatan Rakyat.

Interestingly, the incidence seems would explain why to date there has been so many overt and covert criticism of his leadership either within the country or internationally.

This unleashed an ongoing yet remarkably silent controversy and internal crisis around the leadership in Pakatan Rakyat.

It witnessed the emergence of another kind of war that PKR is struggling within the opposition pact, namely Malay dominated PAS and Chinese-based DAP.

Ironically, politics are structured along explicit ethnic’s lines and political differences have always been a feature of the Malaysian community.

It was claimed by the analyst that the central political reality of Malaysia has been the ethnic cleavage between Malays and non-Malays which opposition is being seen as weak and unable to handle.

By choosing shaky and unclean candidates which stabbed him in the back, it is giving fodder that the opposition is on the verge of collapse.

The questions arise: When will opposition coalition collapse happen? Will the opposition leaders sit by and let it happen?
