Nevertheless, Nurul Izzah must first be groomed and trained for national leadership. In the next election she should contest a state seat, maybe in her ‘home-state’, Penang. Then, if she wins that state seat, she should be made one of the Deputy Chief Ministers, or at the very least a State EXCO Member of an important portfolio.

Malaysia's Anwar Ibrahim sex trial verdict might push for political heir
(Press TV) - Malaysia's opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim's supporters say the verdict of his sex trial, scheduled for January 9, would indicate the transparency of the country's judiciary.
Anwar, who stood trial for sodomy, has repeatedly said he did not get a fair trial throughout the two-year court proceeding. He also accused the government of trumping up the sex charge to end his political career and popularity.
There are many spooky legends about the dead, especially those who were brutally murdered, returning to haunt their killers. One way or another, these spirits will somehow seek revenge, so the superstition goes. Otherwise, their souls will never be in peace.
Altantuya Shaaribu, by all definitions, fits this legend. Indeed, the 28-year-old Altantuya - a Mongolian national murdered in Malaysia in 2006 - has now become a Malaysian legend!
There are also those who believe in jinx and to this group, the of-little-use Scorpene submarines which are tied to the Altantuya murder are indeed jinxed. As the Malay proverb goes, one cannot cover the carcass of an elephant without being noticed .
