ABU bercadang hendak ke jalanan
Tiga hari lepas (Julai 27), pelopor Asal Bukan Umno/ABU Haris Ibrahim memblog tajuk ‘Manchester’s Plan B, stands and directions? Will RPK make sense of these for us?’
‘Manchester’ merujuk kepada Raja Petra Kamarudin yang menginap di kota tersebut. Haris telah memberi kata putus ’48 jam’ (“I will wait 48 hours to hear from him”) bagi RPK membalas sahutannya.
Hari ini, tempoh yang ditetapkan oleh Haris sudah berlalu. Jadi apa agaknya langkah yang akan diambil Haris seterusnya?
“I had intimated that I would wait 48 hours for RPK to respond with his clarification to the concerns I have raised in this post.
“He has purported to do so vide his posting today entitled ‘The principle behind the stand : the lesser of the
“In my view, he has not addressed those concerns.
“I will continue to wait out the 48 hours.”
Haris bukannya tidak pernah bercanggah pendapat dengan Raja Petra dalam tempoh enam bulan kebelakangan ini berkenaan beberapa isu.
Isu terbaru, Haris menggambarkan Plan B yang dikemukakan oleh Raja Petra sebagai berasaskan:
“Plan B postulates that we work to ensure that should we be faced with the prospect of a post 13th GE Umno / BN government, the same be steered by a liberal Najib, rather than a radical, ‘Malay supremacy, May 13-minded’ Umno leader. …
“The seeming rationale for Plan B is a concern, on the part of RPK, that the recent attempts by Dr M and his corner to resurrect the ghost of May 13 presents a real prospect of this happening, rather than being a mere attempt to create the spectre, and attendant fear by the middle class, of inter-racial violence gripping this nation post the 13th GE, should Umno / BN be deposed.
Haris menjelaskan pendiriannya dengan lebih lanjut:
“Let me make my stand and my direction clear.
“Unless the electoral playing field is leveled by, at the very least, implementing in full the first 5 of the Bersih demands, I am not prepared to accept and live with an Umno /BN victory post the 13th GE.

Tambah Haris lagi:
“In November, last year, I joined several others to issue an ultimatum to Najib. [YouTube: Tuntutan ABU]
“This was no idle threat.
“Do we have the numbers to see this through?
“Let Najib dissolve parliament without first implementing those reforms, and then we’ll see.
“But even if we cannot muster up the numbers after parliament is dissolved, expect an uprising after the polls if Umno / BN are declared the victors in what must plainly be a fraudulent election without those reforms demanded being first implemented.
Rumusan Haris adalah, “Short of free and fair elections, we will not endure an Umno-led government post the 13th GE, whether of the ‘liberal Najib’ or ‘radical Mahathir’ flavour.”
