Barisan Nasional Beware..Your Day In Power Is Numbered!
The Pakatan Rakyat political policy, agreed to by the three parties of the alliance at their first convention on Saturday, is on track, said Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim.He told reporters here on Monday that he, PAS president Hadi Awang and DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang had already given their word to apply to the Registrar of Societies for formal registration of the coalition.
Anwar, the Permatang Pauh MP and PKR de facto leader, said this when clarifying remarks by Hadi on Sunday that the tripartite electoral pact is not yet ready to be formally registered.
"We have to read his statement in the appropriate context because the decision to register Pakatan Rakyat was in our agreement,” said Anwar, claiming that Hadi meant that the detailed plans to formalise the the coalition had not been agreed to yet and would take time.

All have agreed to register Pakatan
“All of us, me, Hadi, Kit Siang and the others, have agreed to register the party. But we have to have a strong framework for the policy, which might take time," he said.
Hadi, speaking at a meeting with political bloggers, had reportedly said that Pakatan does not necessarily have to become a single party.
The remarks came a day after the inaugural convention of the coalition, which resolved to have a common political policy to counter the ruling Barisan Nasional coalition in future elections.
Anwar said: “There was a misunderstanding. It is not that it is to be formalised based on preliminary terms of reference and constitution, which have not been resolved.
“So I think there’s no problem with that, because as far as we are concerned, we are committed to register.
Focus first on policy
“What Hadi has said is that because whenever we try to hasten it (the registering process) the ROS will slow it down."
Anwar added that if the ROS wants Pakatan to be registered fast, he would call for a meetin next week.
He conceded, however, that for the time being the Pakatan would concentrate on its policies rather than formalising the coalition.
“We are more concern about the policy issues. That is the priority."
