The debate: Anwar is the better speaker, but..

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim failed to offer a convincing and sustainable formula in reducing the price of fuel during the special debate `Form the Government Today, Fuel Price Down Tomorrow’.

Although he spoke eloquently and attracted the attention of the audience, particularly his supporters, with his rhetoric, the formula he presented was successfully rebutted by his opponent, Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek, who is the Information Minister.

The minister provided more facts in defending the government’s move to restructure the fuel subsidy compared to Anwar who chose to adopt the populist approach in wooing the audience.

According to Anwar, the fuel price could be reduced by 50 sen per litre on the next day if Pakatan Rakyat were to form the government, through the formula of RM5 billion to be utilised to cater for the fuel price reduction.

He said the money could be obtained through savings in government expenditure including overcoming the problems of leakage, and reducing the standby capacity in energy production from 40 per cent to 20 per cent by the independent power producers (IPP).

    that’s not true, shabery seems always rehearsed the answer and attacking anwar personally without understand the question. how sad we have the silly cabinet minister like him.useless

    the minister has given no points of defending the goverment decision at all. that all that matters…he, useless, uninformative minister of information of all time, has done nothing but humiliated himself, his superiors, the government n the whole nation – as he reckoned he was elected by people? did we? did you?

    If Dato’ Shabery is the best man from the government ministers to stand off against DSAI last night, I believed BN will have a very dim future. He kept mentioning 2 point only, personal attack and off topic. Truely how sad…

    Agreed with leena. the minister is not answering to direct questions. beats around the bush, making personal attack, bringing out history that will not be relevant at this point. Thus, it goes to show the quality of ministers that we are having these days. Personally, I’d believed that Anwar, if given the chance, will be a better PM compare to Badawi or Najib.

    Er… the writer must be watching a different debate.

    “The minister provided more facts in defending the government’s move to restructure the fuel subsidy compared to Anwar who chose to adopt the populist approach in wooing the audience.”

    Are you on crack? what facts? The MINISTER resort to personal attack and evade questions he could not answer which will shamed the most skillful taichi master.

    This is utter bullshit.

    Anwar might have ‘failed to offer a convincing and sustainable formula in reducing the price of fuel’, but it is important to note as well that he did a good job sticking to the topic. At least there was a real attempt from the former dpm to address the issue – unlike Shabery who loved to resort to personal attacks. That, in my opinion, is worse than failing to come up with that ‘convincing’ formula.

    Hmm, a reflection of how ‘informative’ our information minister is?

    It is obvious that this blog is anti Anwar Ibrahim. I’m not a fan of the man either but I don’t stoop so low as to false observations and comments. Many of the things you accuse him of in some of the previous postings are equally applicable to the clowns in UMNO today.
