"Soal bila hendak bersara tidak penting dan tidak ada kaitan dengan kebajikan dan perjuangan membela rakyat. Persaraan yang bersyarat memberi gambaran bahawa motivasi dan pendorong utama beliau berpolitik ialah untuk merebut jawatan Perdana Menteri dan bukan membela rakyat seperti yang sering dilaungkannya." - Masidi Manjun of Sabah on Anwar's threat to quit politics if the people do not vote BN out of Putrajaya in PRU13, Jangan Jadi Serigala Prihatin Di hadapan Biri-biriOriginal article

Anwar will pursue an academic career if he does not get Putrajaya
Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has reiterated his plan to end 30-year political career if he fails to unseat Prime Minister Najib Razak at the next election.The end is near? They say they will fight to the end so that Malaysians can, at least, buy cheaper cars (though they won't say how or by how much), but then they do something else altogether. With the general election looming so near, Anwar Ibrahim seems to sense that the end, too, is near. So he says if we fails to become the PM after the next GE, he will quit politics. No fighting to the end. It's hard to believe him, of course, but it's rather telling when people like Din Merican, who reads Anwar like a book, isn't trying too hard to challenge or protest Anwar's pessimism.
“I will try my best. I am confident we will win. But if not, I will step down,” Anwar said last night ..
"Failure to take over Putrajaya, trafic as it may be, is not the end of the world for (Anwar). He will still be remembered as the man who transformed politics in our country." - Din Merican's Anwar will pursue an academic career if he does not get Putrajaya.
Thanks to Blogger Ellese for picking up the strange vibes at Din Merican's blog. Like Din, Ellese was also a fan of Anwar Ibrahim believer until his handling of the 1998 financial crisis. "The crisis was good for revealing to us the devil and incompetence in Anwar". Read more at The Right of Reply
