Now, the Sultan of Kedah gets into the act. Read that the Sultan wants to question V Arumugam whether he was forced to resign by PR. Honestly, no more constitutional monarchy, only pro-UMNO monarchy?

If these are the type of members PKR has, it can do without them - threatening to leave if their leader is not selected. Likewise, if Latha made that statement about members threatening to desert the party campaign, she should be sacked.
In any case, Bt Selambau will only need 500 campaign workers. Selangor, Perak and Penang can easily send 5 times that many.
We don't measure a leader by the number of times he went to jail. We measure them by their integrity, ability to lead, to formulate policies and get things done.
Bukit Selambau: PKR aspirants knock on Anwar's doors

Before any electoral contest, the choice of candidate is always an issue. And it is no different for next month’s Bukit Selambau by-election. ...........
.......Latha claimed that grassroots feedback from Bukit Selambau revealed that constituents are in favour of Kalaivanar for his party loyalty and fighting spirit.
It is learnt many grassroots members could desert the party campaign in Bukit Selambau if Kalaivanar were to be overlooked.
They want him because they see Kalaivanar as one of them, not as an elite leader out of touch with grassroots, claimed Latha.

UMNO is getting more and more desperate and becoming more blatant in the abuse of police powers. It wil only make things worse for them.

SUNGAI PETANI, March 23 — Federal Reserve Unit (FRU) forces fired tear gas and used water cannons tonight on thousands gathered at a ceramah in Bukit Selambau just as Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was beginning his speech.
At about 10pm, the FRU engaged the crowd gathered in an open field in front of a shophouse that is being used by PKR as its operation centre for the April 7 by-election.
The opposition leader and other Pakatan Rakyat leaders were holed up in the operation centre until nearly 11pm as police continued breaking up the crowd outside.
According to PKR’s Selangor executive councillor Dr Xavier Jeyakumar, those arrested include fellow party member Zamri Yusuf who is a Senator from Kedah and Anwar’s chief of staff Ibrahim Yaacob.
He added that the crowd of thousands dispersed into nearby housing areas with the FRU giving chase as they continued to fire tear gas.
