What happens in the next 24 hours in the Selangor MB crisis may upstage the August 17 PAS leadership meeting and set the seal for the irretrievable break-up of Pakatan Rakyat


The meeting of the PAS national leadership on August 17 will have a critical bearing on the future of the six-year-old three-party coalition Pakatan Rakyat.

However, the August 17 meeting of PAS may be upstaged by what happens in the next 24 hours in the Selangor Mentri Besar crisis which may set the seal for the irretrievable break-up of Pakatan Rakyat.

The break-up of Pakatan Rakyat will cause consternation and even despair among Malaysians over the betrayal of their high hopes that change has finally come to Malaysia after more than half a century of political stagnation and even regresson but welcomed as a boon and relief by Umno/BN leaders and apparatchiks as a “salvation” to spare them from political rejection and repudiation in the country.

This is the reason why the Deputy Prime Minister and UMNO Deputy President, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, had been so fast in declaring unconditional support of 12 UMNO/Barisan Nasional State Assembly representatives in Selangor to Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim as Mentri Besar of Selangor although he has lost the mandate of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and Pakatan Rakyat to continue as Selangor Mentri Besar.

UMNO/Barisan Nasional strategists are working overtime to exploit the Selangor Mentri Besar crisis, working on the scenario of 12 UMNO + 15 PAS + Khalid and a high-powered campaign to undermine the loyalty of DAP and PKR State Assembly reps to betray the Selangor voters and their respective parties.

This campaign gains strength with the open support in some quarters for a UMNO-PAS “Unity Government” although couched under another terminology like “national consensus”.

Pakatan Rakyat leaders must act promptly and decisively and not be blind-sided by the pace of developments in the Selangor Mentri Besar crisis when time is of the essence, allowing what could happen in the next 24 hours to upstage not only the PAS leadership meeting of August 17 but determine the survival of Pakatan Rakyat.

    short pain may be better for long gain?
    think carefully if you still want pas?
    i think some pas representative probably also disagreed with their leaders

    ///and a high-powered campaign to undermine the loyalty of DAP and PKR State Assembly reps….///

    At the end of the day, it is Umno/BN’s powerful weapon – money, money, money – that will decide who will win the MB game in Selangor!!??

    If PR cannot stand together on this one, then I guess they never will.

    Let’s see if PAS will sleep with their so-called devil on this one. If yes then anything goes.

    Let’s admit it. PAS has already left Pakatan as far as the voters are concerned. Why want to keep a rotten vegetable (+time bomb) in your pocket?

    It is time to move on.

    If I have to choose between UMNO and PAS, I will spoil my votes.

    First of all why Mahathir is called the master politician is because of his skill at the game of chess.Anwar is no chess player.So Anwar is no master politician.That is the reason for all this Kajang mess.

    DAP leaders should do themselves and their members a favor by not giving Anwar and his cowboys free rein in bringing down the coalition pact.

  9. #9 by bruno on Tuesday, 12 August 2014 - 10:12 pm

    Pas should not be doing what it did as it is still a member of the PR pact.But it is better they did what they did now than five years down the road.Somebody got to stand up and be counted and say enough is enough of this Kajang circus.

    Good riddance to bad rubbish! When do we ever have had enough of this? Are the nation and the people so hopeless that we are destined to become a basket case? This was how I viewed the latest development taken place today.

    What we have now, literally speaking, is a one-man government acting like a dictator to rule the day. I shudder to think where would Khalid be today if he had not the backings of those with the power behind him. The stake is high – 60 millions worth, with a threat of bankruptcy!

    A snap election is the last thing that UMNO wanted – that’s a job for Khalid to make sure. By the time PAS has come to a decision, Selangor would be under a new government. UMNO 3in1 assault package is a done job!

    PKR & DAP should woo the moderate technocrats in PAS over.
    Let the Mullahs remain in that party and see how far they can go!!!

    “If you don’t help me to implement hudud, why must I help you to change MB”. I suspect that is what PAS is thinking at this juncture.

    Many unprincipled PR politicians – abusing voters’ trust n abusing public office to go on their ego trips

    Lately most news on infighting, hardly any positive news on progress n developments in Selangor

    So, still think dis 1DERland has a FUTURE?

    Skrued n sodomised by both UmnoB/BN n PR!

  14. #14 by boh-liao on Wednesday, 13 August 2014 - 12:41 pm

    PR has given UmnoB/BN n their msm a large number of ammunition 2 WHACK PR 4 a long, long time

  15. #15 by boh-liao on Wednesday, 13 August 2014 - 12:55 pm

    What is PAS up to?
    PAS wants 2 stick with PR
    But PAS kaki continue 2 support n work with an EX-PKR independent, who might turn in2 an UmnoB kaki
    Where is d “1 4 all, all 4 1″ spirit?

    D SACKed PKR n DAP Selangor state executive councillors want 2 continue their duties – Betul kah? Syiok diri?
    R they legally correct NOW 2 even enter their offices n handle + sign official documents? Nanti kena charged under OSA!

  16. #16 by boh-liao on Wednesday, 13 August 2014 - 1:15 pm

    AA, PKR n DAP kaki tot they r smart n strategists who can manipulate things 2 their favor

    They never learnt fr past events – Perak, court judgments n decisions, etc

    They FORGOT, at d end d SYSTEM will skru n swallow them up, making them born losers

    In dis 1DERland, d SYSTEM n d ONEs in POWER can twist n twist everything (whether right or not, ethical or not, corrupt or not, etc) against them

    Wonderful logic!

  19. #19 by boh-liao on Wednesday, 13 August 2014 - 4:02 pm

    Is Penang gomen a PR gomen?
    Kelantan gomen?

    5 excos sacked. Checkmate PR. Unless our master planners Anwar and rafizi have some magic potion up their sleeves.

    And let’s see how Khalid will spend the 3 billion reserves. Better watch him like a hawk.
