PR no longer a pushover: Malaysian Spring is HERE - Anwar


After bloodying the government's nose in 2008 elections, a more experienced and organised opposition is eyeing the once-unthinkable: toppling one of the world's longest-serving governments.

PR no longer a pushover: Malaysian Spring is HERE - AnwarMalaysians vote soon with the formerly hapless opposition buoyed by a new track record of state-level government, signs of growing voter support, and what its leader Anwar Ibrahim calls a sense of history in the making.

"I am convinced, insya Allah (God willing), that we will win government," Anwar told AFP, evoking the winds of change that powered the "Arab Spring" elsewhere in the Muslim world.
"Of course we call it a 'Malaysian Spring', but our method is elections (not uprisings)."
Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak is expected to call a fresh vote in weeks, pitting his Malay-dominated Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition against Anwar's multi-ethnic opposition alliance Pakatan Rakyat (People's Pact).

The 57-year-old ruling bloc enjoys deep pockets, mainstream media control, an electoral system the opposition says is rigged, and a record of decades of economic growth under its authoritarian template.

Few expect the opposition to win the 112 parliamentary seats needed to take power. The three-party alliance won 82 seats in the 2008 polls, up from 21, stunning the BN with its biggest-ever setback.

But speculation is rife that Pakatan could win enough in the polls - which must be held by late June - to lure ruling coalition defectors and form a government.
