Martin Jalleh rebuts Nazri Aziz’s accusation that Anwar has been party-hopping like a ‘frog’.
Umno supreme council member Nazri Abdul Aziz declares that Anwar Ibrahim’s efforts to entice Sabah BN leaders will not affect BN (Malaysiakini, 12 August 2012).
He then adds: “If Anwar want to take those who will not be fielded by (BN), go ahead. Anwar is also a frog because he left Abim (a Muslim youth movement) for Umno and then to PKR.
“It is no surprise that he takes in his own kind. The frog will accept another frog.
“Anwar’s political journey has made him ‘Bapa segala katak (King of frogs)’

Fact No. 1: Abim is not a political party. Therefore there was no hopping involved. Furthermore Anwar was invited by Dr Mahathir to join Umno!
Fact No. 2: Anwar did not leave Umno, he was sacked by Dr M and the Umno Supreme Council.
Fact No. 3: He did not jump into PKR, he formed it!
Fact No. 4: Nazri’s political journey has made him an idiot!
