20,000 defy police to celebrate Anwar’s ban expiry

Aiya, I missed because got class…

About 20,000 people attended a rally in central Kuala Lumpur tonight to mark the expiry of Anwar Ibrahim ban from public office, a decade after he was sacked as deputy prime minister.

The crowd defied a ban on the event which was held in Kampung Baru despite scores of riot police were deployed in the futile attempt to stop the illegal gathering.

“We have not issued any permits for the gathering. I advise all the supporters not to attend it. The gathering is banned,” city police chief Muhammad Sabtu Osman told AFP earlier today.

At about 9.15pm, Anwar took the stage to tell his supporters to wait two weeks on whether he would be running for parliamentary seat and return to active politics.

Say, what is the meaning of our votes at 12GE when frog MPs jump from one party to another party?

P/S: Some people went there because Raja Petra got wedding anniversary at same place.
