Terengganu is a peculiar state where Opposition Assemblymen help to prop up the UMNO Mentri Besar to defeat a no-confidence motion in the State Assembly from an UMNO Assemblyman


Marang is the 127th parliamentary constituency I am visiting since my six-month suspension from Parliament for wanting the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak to answer two simple questions about the twin global corruption scandals which had been haunting and hounding him for over a year – where the astronomical sums of money running into billions of ringgit in the twin mega scandals come from and where the monies have gone to.

I am returning to Parliament on Monday but these two simple questions about Najib’s RM50 billion 1MDB scandal and RM4.2 billion “donation” scandals are as elusive as ever, although the twin mega scandals have merged into one gargantuan global scandal spanning over a dozen countries.

The Global Anti-Corruption Summit in London yesterday has among its objeectives to:

* expose corruption so there is nowhere to hide;

* punish the perpetrators and support those affected by corruption; and

* drive out the culture of corruption wherever it exists.

Will Najib as Prime Minister of Malaysia declare full support for these three objectives of the Global Anti-Corruption Summit in London, or is the Malaysian Government terribly frightened of these triple goals.

In Parliament next week, Najib should explain why Malaysia is not playing a pivotal role in the Global Anti-Corruption Summit in London yesterday as Malaysia was host to the 16th IACC in Putrajaya last September.

I had two days ago submitted three final questions for the forthcoming fortnight of Parliament meeting beginning on Monday, viz:

1. To ask the Prime Minister why Malaysia is regarded as among the top countries in the world infamous for corruption and what counter actions have been taken.

2. To ask the Prime Minister how is Malaysia affected by the Panama Papers.

3.To ask the Prime Minister whether Malaysia will support global efforts to expose corruption so that there is nowhere for the corrupt to hide.
Terengganu is a peculiar state where Opposition Assemblymen help to prop up the UMNO Mentri Besar to defeat a no-confidence motion in the State Assembly from an UMNO Assemblyman.

In early March, one UMNO State Assemblyman moved a no confidence motion against the Terengganu Mentri Besar, and if the no confidence motion had been allowed to be decided by the Teregganu State Assembly on the same day, Terengganu state would have had a new Mentri Besar for the past two months.

Even the Terengganu State Assembly Speaker panicked, but he was able to defer the no-confidence motion until the next day, when the scenario changed completely, and the Terengganu Mentri Besar moved from the “danger” to “no danger” zone, with Opposition Assemblymen switching support in having confidence in the Mentri Besar.

This must go down as one of the wierdest political episodes in Malaysian political history.

    It’s not just the Terengganu MB Hadi’s PAS is propping up, fact is its Najib himself. Fact is if PAS declared Najib is guilty and took to the streets, Najib would be out.

    The strange thing is even Mahathir and Muhiyiddin has not criticised Hadi’s PAS for propping up Najib

    So, opposition kaki got principle or not?

    Macam d trustworthy Adenan, who on April 28 urged Chinese voters to choose BN instead of DAP if they wanted a deputy CM
    NOW, AFTER d state erection, he appointed 3 deputy CMs
    Got principle or not aah?
    Got Chinese CM or not aah?
    Ha, ha, WHO kena sodomised kuat kuat, deep deep?
    Same old story – voters NEVER learnt

    Kit, as you travel through Hadi country, are you convinced that PAS is for change or is Hadi likely to side DUMNO without joining DUMNO?
    Secondly, how well receive is Amanah? Do we have a partner here for GE 14?
    What do you think?

    Don’t forget, d current PAS ADUNs in Terengganu r saving their own skin NOT 2 dissolve d current Terengganu State Assembly

    Self preservation – enjoying d benefits n perks of an ADUN

    They knew they were erected in d last GE under Pakatan ticket
    Many non-Malays who don’t subscribe 2 PAS political ideals voted 4 PAS bcos of ABU n Pakatan

    Now PAS is out of Pakatan

    In d next GE, PAS candidates most likely will not get votes fr non-Malays who don’t support hudud n Hadi

    They might not b RE-erected as ADUNs, hence losing all d benefits n perks of an ADUN

    So, NO desire 2 dissolve d current Terengganu State Assembly
