PKR Strategy Director Rafizi Ramli (photo by Hussein Shaharuddin/The Mole)
Rafizi Ramli, a name that is synonymous in "exposing" the so-called mismanagement and power abuse of Barisan Nasional (BN) leaders has today i think helped BN tremendously in the next General Election. First of all, the structure of UMNO (Backbone of BN) is that party leaders are very hard to be removed from their position, since with position comes power and also with power comes supporters alike. Nevertheless, since UMNO leaders can't be removed internally, the best way to remove them is by using the opposition i.e. externally.
This is where Rafizi Ramli comes into play, and oh well did he did not play his part well. Rafizi Ramli just took the bait so easily in the NFC case. Always look at the bigger picture in politics, and to do that let's look at three (3) very prominent personalities in Lembah Pantai/PKR. One will be none other than the current MP, daughter of PKR Supreme Leader Anwar Ibrahim, Vice President of a party which her mother is also the President Mrs. Nurul Izzah, DS Shahrizat Jalil (former MP of Lembah Pantai) and the third would be the the hidden hand behind the fall of both Nurul Izzah and Shahrizat Jalil which will remain a mystery.
It has to also be remembered that up till now, all the exposes by PKR were through Rafizi. However, in the eyes of Anwar, yes Rafizi is a valuable asset to the party, but not so to the political warlords and to learn more about this, please read about the PKR elections in particular the fight for the post of AMK leader and you'll know what I mean.
