It is not a surprise for me that Former Minister in Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Mohd Zaid Ibrahim has joined PKR. For me, he is a person with principle and is willing to give up his ministerial post after a politician, a reporter and a blogger had been detained by ISA. For a person who fights for unity and democracy, politics is the only way to go. Even NGO don’t really have the ability to push for those reforms. Since he had been suspended by UMNO, Pakatan Rakyat is his alternative. Among 3 parties within PR, DAP surely is not his ideal party as the party is generally dominated by Chinese. PAS on the other hand is a Malay-based party (more accurately Islamic religion based party). So, the decision of Zaid to join PKR (a multi-racial party) which is parallel with his struggle to fight for unity and democracy is an expected decision. The question that I can’t figure out is “WHY NOW”???
Former de facto Law Minister
WHY ZAID CHOOSE TO JOIN PKR NOW???
Is that merely an ordinary decision or there might be a hidden agenda behind it???
