Right and proper thing for Najib to do is to seek a vote of confidence when Parliament reconvenes on Monday


(Scroll down for BM version of this statement / Terjemahan BM di bawah)

The right and proper thing for Datuk Seri Najib Razak to do is to seek a vote of confidence as Prime Minister when Parliament reconvenes on Monday.

Although there is no precedent of a “no confidence” motion in Malaysian Parliament in the past 56 years, there is a precedent for a “vote of confidence” motion on the Prime Minister, which was moved in the Dewan Rakyat on January 27, 1976, by then Dato Hussein Onn when he became Malaysia’s third Prime Minister after the death of his predecessor, Tun Razak.

There had earlier been a suggestion that Pakatan Rakyat MPs should table a motion of no confidence against the Prime Minister when Parliament reconvenes on May 18 especially as the ballooning RM42 billion 1MDB scandal will involve not only all Malaysians but future generations.

Apart from the question of its practicability, as there is a great likelihood that such a motion under the present circumstances would not be able to navigate through the Parliamentary Standing Orders to surface as a motion to be debated and decided by MPs in Parliament, there is now the added problem that it may not even secure the full vote of PR MPs.

As nobody really believes all the “big drama” enacted after the Umno Supreme Council meeting yesterday that “things are never so well in Umno” and “support for Najib never so strong” or Najib’s declaration that “no one can tear me and Muhyiddin apart” and that “Those slandering us don’t love UMNO” – reducing not just former Umno Ministers but UMNO’s longest-serving Prime Minister into instant traitors of Umno – as the first minority Prime Minister in the country, Najib should seek a motion of confidence from Parliament on Monday to prove to the nation and the world that he still enjoys the confidence of the majority of MPs in the country.

Is Najib bold enough to seek such a vote of confidence from Parliament on Monday or he is fearful that an accident might occur and he might lose a vote of confidence on Monday and suddenly cease to be Prime Minister?

(Teks Bahasa Malaysia)

Langkah terbaik dan paling tepat untuk diambil oleh Najib ialah mendapatkan undi percaya apabila Parlimen kembali bersidang Isnin nanti

Langkah terbaik dan paling tepat untuk diambil oleh Datuk Seri Najib Razak ialah mendapatkan undi percaya selaku Perdana Menteri apabila Parlimen kembali bersidang Isnin nanti.

Walaupun belum pernah ada dahuluan usul tidak percaya dalam Parlimen Malaysia sepanjang 56 tahun lalu, terdapat dahuluan bagi usul undi percaya terhadap Perdana Menteri, yang telah diusulkan di Dewan Rakyat pada 27 Januari 1976 oleh Hussein Onn (ketika itu Dato’) apabila beliau menjadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia ketiga selepas kematian Tun Razak.

Sebelum ini juga terdapat cadangan supaya Ahli-ahli Parlimen Pakatan Rakyat membentangkan usul tidak percaya kepada Perdana Menteri apabila Parlimen kembali bersidang 18 Mei nanti, terutamanya memandangkan skandal RM42 bilion 1MDB yang kian membelon bakal melibatkan bukan sahaja semua rakyat Malaysia hari ini, tetapi juga generasi akan datang.

Selain daripada soal kesesuaian, kerana besar kemungkinan usul sedemikian dalam keadaan sekarang bukan sahaja sukar melepasi Aturan Mesyuarat untuk dibahas dan diputuskan oleh Ahli-ahli Dewan Rakyat, malah kini terdapat masalah tambahan di mana agak sukar untuk mendapatkan sokongan penuh kesemua Ahli-ahli Parlimen Pakatan Rakyat.

Memandangkan tidak ada sesiapa yang percaya dengan sandiwara yang dipentaskan selepas mesyuarat Majlis Tertinggi Umno semalam yang kononnya ‘keadaan tidak pernah sedemikian baik dalam Umno’ dan ‘sokongan untuk Najib tidak pernah sebegitu kuat’ atau pernyataan Najib bahawa ‘tidak ada sesiapa yang boleh memisahkan saya dan Muhyiddin’ dan bahawa ‘mereka yang memfitnah kami, tidak sayangkan Umno’ – yang menjadikan bukan sahaja bekas-bekas menteri Umno, malahan juga bekas Perdana Menteri yang paling lama berkhidmat sebagai pengkhianat Umno – sebagai Perdana Menteri minoriti pertama dalam negara, Najib wajar membawa usul percaya di Parlimen pada hari Isnin demi membuktikan kepada negara dan dunia bahawa beliau masih menikmati kepercayaan majoriti Ahli Parlimen negara ini.

Adakah Najib cukup berani untuk membawa usul percaya di Parlimen pada hari Isnin nanti atau adakah beliau risau akan berlaku sesuatu yang tidak diduga dan beliau tewas dalam undian percaya pada hari Isnin nanti serta tidak lagi menjadi Perdana Menteri?

    Its pointless to ask or demand of anything from Najib or UMNO/BN without reference back to failure of PAS to act against UMNO/BN. So long as PAS cooperate with their own indulgence, Najib and Mahathir can go on indulging in their elitist dysfunctionalities that we the rakyat end up paying..

    If it is time for Najib to leave, UMNO itself will deal him a gentle blow with the same axe that was used against certain former PMs of Malaysia. Why rock the boat, anyway? We should try our best to block Dr. M’s influence from the politics of Malaysia. For that, Najib must stay on as PM.

    Do you think Dr M will give up forcing Najib to step down? No way!
