Hannah Yeoh said this in her blog:
To those who argue that the political crisis in Perak now is a taste of Pakatan's own medicine (referring to the Sept 16 takeover plan), they have failed to see the key differences between the two.
If you remember what happened when Dato' Seri Anwar Ibrahim claimed to have the numbers to form the new federal government, he wrote to PM Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi requesting him to convene an emergency sitting of Parliament. This was rejected by the PM.
The next constitutional option is to press for the dissolution of Parliament to make way for fresh new elections. That was also not entertained. Anwar Ibrahim exhausted the constitutional means that were available to him. If Pakatan were to act unconstitutionally and lure defections, then we will be having a new government today. But we didn't and we will not act unconstitutionally. So you can't say that Najib's coup and Pakatan's plan were one and the same.

source - Anwar: MCA MPs will defect to Pakatan
“I can safely say that several MCA MPs will join us soon,” he told journalists yesterday, after opening a service centre in Bayan Baru, Penang. “It’s about time that we take over. It’s only a matter of time for us to take over. We are so close to Putrajaya,” he said to roars from some 30,000 people.“It’s very soon. I will not say how (soon). But it will happen soon.”
APOMM : No MCA MPs left to join Anwar. Fairytale? Myths? Busted.

source - Anwar leaves Turkish embassy
Anwar claimed that component parties - of whom two were from Umno - four parliamentarians from the ruling Barisan Nasionalwill be defecting to the opposition Pakatan Rakyat this week. "This week, I was supposed to announce which constituency I was going to contest in and the four Barisan Nasional parliamentarians who are going to join us. As such, they've had to act now (referring to the Saiful allegations)." According to Anwar, because of the allegations, he has had to put off the announcements.
APOMM : No one left to join Anwar. Fairytale? Myths? Ask Hannah Yeoh.

source : PAS tahu senarai MP lompat
Senarai bilangan ahli Parlimen Barisan Nasional didakwa akan menyertai Pakatan Rakyat telah dikemukakan dalam mesyuarat jawatankuasa pusat PAS Ahad lalu.
Berdasarkan senarai tersebut, kebanyakan mereka adalah dari Sabah dan Sarawak itu yang beragama Islam, demikian menurut ahli jawatankuasa PAS, Ahmad Awang .
Dalam senarai itu juga, kata Ahmad, terdapat wakil rakyat dari MCA dan MIC yang akan menyertai Pakatan. “Sebab itu kita tengok MCA (contohnya) ada hentam penggunaan Akta Keselamatan Dalam Negeri (ISA). Itu bunga-bunganya (tanda-tanda hendak keluar daripada BN),” katanya.
APOMM: PAS saja tahu. Anwar saja tahu. Hannah Yeoh tahu? Kalau tahu, YB Hannah Yeoh sila hantar ke emel saya.

source : Anwar wants to go to Parliament before Court case
Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the only way for Pakatan Rakyat to form the Federal Government was via an emergency session of Parliament to be convened by Tuesday for a no-confidence motion to be tabled against Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.
He insisted yesterday that Pakatan Rakyat had the numbers to form a new government, adding that the names of the Barisan Nasional MPs who were ready to switch sides would be revealed in Parliament.
APOMM: Will a vote of no confidence against Pak Lah crown Anwar as the new PM, Hannah Yeoh? The last time I checked, since March 2008 till 15 Feb 2009, Barisan Nasional holds the majority in Parliament. According to the Constitution, the majority gets to form the Government of Malaysia.

source - Anwar: Public will know crossover list today
The list of Barisan Nasional members of parliament who would cross over to the Pakatan Rakyat will be announced today, PR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said last night. Addressing more than 10,000 people gathered at the Kelana Jaya Stadium for the PR's Malaysia Day celebration, he claimed that the opposition coalition was poised to take over the Federal Government. "We have the numbers and we are ready. Tomorrow (today), we will announce it (the crossover list)," he said.
APOMM: Hannah, Anwar did not announce the crossover list and have not till today (check the "days passed" widget at my sidebar).
I think the Constitution did not say Anwar cannot announce the crossover lists. And by the way Hannah, please do not use the same excuse which others have been using - Takut Mati.
No one has ever died in any political struggles in Malaysia - Mahathir, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak, Anwar Ibrahim.
Hannah Yeoh living in another world.
