Malaysia in the 15GE should resolve to be the top OIC country in TI CPI instead of losing to five other OIC countries and likely lose out to another 10 OIC countries by end of the decade

Sultan Nazrin of Perak’s warning last Thursday to Malaysians not to be in denial and not to perform “mental acrobatics to deny the existence of the corruption ‘elephant’ that is vividly happen in front of our eyes” is most apt and timely.

This is because we are at the point where Malaysians must decide whether to unite to save the country from the catastrophe of corruption and kleptocracy or surrender to corruption and allow the country to be a failed and rogue state and a kleptocratic regime. Read the rest of this entry »

UMNO leaders are getting very desperate and blatant – they attack the judiciary for Najib going to jail instead of condemning corruption and they want early general election even to “wade through floods” to tell the world that 1MDB scandal is not a corruption scandal

UMNO leaders are getting very desperate and blatant – they attack the judiciary for the former Prime Minister Najib Razak going to jail instead of condemning corruption and they want early general election even to “wade through floods” to tell the world that 1MDB scandal is not a corruption scandal.

The UMNO President Zahid Hamidi made “twists and turns” trying to explain his speech at the launch of the BN machinery in Kuala Lumpur last Saturday on UMNO’s preparedness to “wade through floods” in the 15GE. Read the rest of this entry »

The best way to remember Dr. Chen Man Hin, founder Chairman of Democratic Action Party for 30 years, and who have dedicated over five decades of his life to Malaysia, is to continue his vision of a Malaysian Dream – a world class great plural nation which is honest, effective and incorruptible.

I call on the UMNO President, Zahid Hamidi, to withdraw his statement that UMNO leaders are prepared to “wide through floods” if the 15th General Election is held during monsoon and floods disasters to prove that UMNO is still responsible and people-oriented party.

The first four UMNO Presidents, Onn Jafaar, Tunku Abdul Raman. Razak Hussein and Hussein Onn would never have said such a thing and regard the loss of 54 lives and RM6.5 billion losses to property as happened last year because of monsoon and floods catastrophe as an irrelevant trifle which should be disregarded, and shows how different is UMNO today under Zahid Hamidi from the UMNO in its founding years.

The example of Parliament being dissolved after the Budget was presented but before it was passed by both Houses of Parliament and given the Royal Assent had happened once before in 1999, but I had said that the Prime Minister Ismail Sabri should not following this wrong and bad example which tantamount to the Prime Minister misusing his powers.

Resolve the dissonance in the two dates – National Day on August 31 and Malaysia Day on September 16

(Versi BM)

For a reset to return to the original nation-building principles and policies of Malaysia, one of the first issues is to resolve the dissonance of two dates – National Day on August 31 and Malaysia Day on Sept. 16.

At present, National Day is primarily celebrated officially in Kuala Lumpur while Malaysia Day is officially celebrated in either Sabah or Sarawak.

The official celebration of National Day should not be primarily confined to Kuala Lumpur while the official celebration of Malaysia Day should not only be in Sarawak or Sabah but circulated nationwide.

Both dates should be officially celebrated throughout the country, by rotation.

National Day should be about national issues while Malaysia Day should not be confined to the restoration of Malaysia Agreement 1963 to ensure equitable relationship of the three Malaysian territories – Malay, Sabah and Sarawak.

It should also be how to make Malaysia a world-class great plural nation.

Sarawak will have three dates including Sarawak Independence Day on 22nd July.

Malaysia has embarked on the great task of a reset to return to the original nation-building principles and policies to build a world-class plural great nation with the restoration of the credibility, legitimacy and integrity of institutions – the Judiciary.

It is most touching and heart-warming that the former lord president Salleh Abas was honoured in a special reference by the judiciary, where the Chief Justice, Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat said that the constitutional crisis of 1988 had shown that despite attempts to undermine the independence of the judiciary, judges must be faithful to the Federal Constitution and be resolute in upholding the rule of law.

Describing the 1988 constitutional crisis which saw the removal of Salleh from his post as Lord President as the “darkest chapter in the history of the Malaysian judiciary”, Tengku Maimum stressed that an independent judiciary that is free from external influences is the “life-blood of constitutionalism in a democratic society”.

She said: “This is the foundation of judicial power and the central component of the doctrine of separation of power”.

For three decades since the 1988 constitutional crisis, the principles of the separation of power, the rule of law and the independence of judiciary, came under a cloud – but the political miracle of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 had brought out the sun.

This is the first step for Malaysia to fulfil her potential to become a world-class great plural nation – by returning to the original nation-building principles and policies of the nation.

Selesaikan perbezaan sambutan dua tarikh – Hari Kebangsaan pada 31 Ogos dan Hari Malaysia pada 16 September

Untuk menetapkan semula hala tuju negara kepada dasar dan prinsip asal Malaysia, salah satu isu yang perlu diselesaikan adalah perbezaan sambutan dua tarikh – Hari Kebangsaan pada 31 Ogos dan Hari Malaysia pada 16 September.

Buat masa ini, Hari Kebangsaan kebiasaannya disambut secara rasmi di Kuala Lumpur manakala Hari Malaysia disambut secara rasmi sama ada di Sabah atau Sarawak.

Sambutan rasmi Hari Kebangsaan ini tidak sepatutnya hanya disambut di Kuala Lumpur sahaja manakala sambutan rasmi Hari Malaysia juga tidak patut hanya disambut di Sarawak atau Sabah, sebaliknya disambut secara bergiliran di seluruh negara.

Kedua-dua tarikh ini patut diadakan sambutan secara rasmi di seluruh negara, mengikut giliran.

Sarawak pula akan mempunyai tiga tarikh untuk diraikan, termasuklah Hari Kemerdekaan Sarawak pada 22 Julai.

Perkara ini juga patut menjadi salah satu langkah untuk menjadikan Malaysia sebuah negara majmuk hebat yang bertaraf dunia.

Malaysia telah memulakan perjalanan panjang untuk kembali semula kepada prinsip dan dasar pembinaan negara bangsa untuk membina sebuah negara majmuk hebat bertaraf dunia dengan mengembalikan semula kredibiliti, keabsahan, dan integriti institusi kehakiman.

Amat menyentuh perasaan melihat bekas Ketua Hakim Salleh Abas diberikan penghormatan dalam majlis rujukan khas oleh pihak kehakiman, di mana Ketua Hakim Negara, Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat mengatakan yang krisis perlembagaan pada tahun 1988 telah menunjukkan walaupun ada usaha untuk merendahkan kebebasan pihak kehakiman, para hakim perlu terus berpegang kepada Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan cekal menegakkan kedaulatan undang-undnag.

Menggambarkan krisis perlembagaan 1988 yang menyaksikan penyingkiran Salleh dari jawatannya sebagai Ketua Hakim sebagai satu “”detik gelap dalam sejarah kehakiman Malaysia”, Tengku Maimun menekankan bahawa badan kehakiman yang bebas dari pengaruh luar adalah “asas sistem pegangan perlembagaan dalam masyarakat berdemokratik”.

Beliau mengatakan: “Perkara ini adalah asas kuasa kehakiman dan merupakan teras utama doktrin pemisahan kuasa”.

Untuk tiga dekad sejak dari krisis perlembagaan 1988, prinsip pemisahan kuasa, kedaulatan undang-undang, dan kebebasan badan kehakiman diragui – namun, keajaiban politik Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 pada 9 Mei 2018 akhirnya membawa perubahan.

Perkara ini adalah langkah pertama untuk Malaysia memenuhi potensinya untuk menjadi sebuah negara majmuk hebat bertaraf dunia – dengan kembali semula kepada prinsip-prinsip dan dasar-dasar asal pembinaan negara.
