KOTA BARU: Sept 17, 2008
Kelantan Men-teri Besar Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat is still confident that Parti Keadilan Rakyat adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will succeed in his plan to form the Federal Government.
Nik Aziz said the Sept 16 date was just a "technical" point when told that Anwar had failed to honour his claim that he would be in charge on this date.
"His failure today is nothing... He did not lie to the people as he had tried his best but his efforts were curtailed by others," Nik Aziz said.
"I support the move to form a new government at the federal level. I will pray that Anwar's effort will succeed."
Nik Aziz was responding to questions from reporters after launching the 18th anniversary of the Tabung Serambi Mekah.
On the opposition's move to get Barisan Nasional MPs to jump the party, he said it was allowed under democracy and followed regulations.
