If Liow and Mah do not know how to requisition for an emergency Barisan Nasional Supreme Council meeting to repudiate Azalina’s Ministerial motion in Parliament and uphold Barisan Nasional consensus of March 2015, I am prepared to show them how


I am most surprised that apart from making empty and meaningless threats of resigning as Ministers, both the MCA President Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai and the Gerakan President Datuk Seri Mak Siew Keong had done nothing to undo the unilateral and arbitrary Ministerial motion by Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Datuk Seri Azalina Said Othman to fast-track the Hadi hudud bill in Parliament last Thursday.

It is now almost a whole week since Azalina stood up in Parliament to fast-track Hadi’s hudud bill, and Liow and Mak should explain why none of them is requisitioning for an emergency Barisan Nasional Supreme Council meeting to uphold the consensus reached by all the Barisan Nasional leaders in March 2015 on this issue and to repudiate Azalina’s Ministerial motion as not representing the collective decision of the Barisan Nasional Cabinet?

Or is there an unwritten rule somewhere which is unknown outside the Barisan Nasional that forbids any Barisan Nasional component party from requisitioning for an emergency Barisan Nasional Supreme Council meeting to undo what happened in Parliament last Thursday?

In fact, I would believe that if Liow or Mah or both take the initiative to get the support of the other Barisan Nasional component parties, they should have no problem in getting three-quarters of the 14 BN component parties from supporting the requisition for an emergency meeting of the Barisan Nasional Supreme Council to undo Azalina’s unilateral and arbitrary Ministerial motion last Thursday.

So why are Liow and Mah impotent, unable to requisition for an emergency meeting of the Barisan Nasional Supreme Council?

If Liow and Mah do not know how to requisition for an emergency Barisan Nasional Supreme Council meeting to repudiate Azalina’s Ministerial motion in Parliament and uphold Barisan Nasional consensus of March 2015, I am prepared to show them how.

In the larger national interests, I would advise Liow and Mah not to be pawns of those who want to create an artificial national crisis by polarizing Malaysians into Muslims and non-Muslims and make “hudud” the primary issue in the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-elections so that national issues like the RM55 billion 1MDB and RM4.2 billion “donation” scandals could be sidelined and ignored.

A day before Azalina moved the Ministerial motion to fast-track Hadi’s hudud bill, a Minister from Sabah who is head of a Barisan Nasional component party tried to stop it and wrote an urgent letter to the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak expressing his opposition and that of the MPs from his party to such a fast-track Ministerial motion.

This Sabah Minister and Barisan Nasional leader said his party opposed Azalina’s motion “even if it is for tactical purposes”.

The question is why Liow and Mah, by their inaction, condoned Azalina’s Ministerial motion purported for “tactical” reasons, which is the height of irresponsible politics in plural Malaysia.

Furthermore, why are Liow and Mah reluctant to requisition an emergency meeting of the Barisan Nasional Supreme Council meeting to undo what Azalina had done with her unilateral and arbitrary Ministerial motion last Thursday?

Or are Liow and Mah in cahoots with those in the UMNO-PAS plot to make “hudud” the primary issue in the Sungai Besar and Kuala Kangsar by-elections so that grave national issues like the RM55 billion 1MDB scandal and the RM4.2 billion “donation” scandal could be buried and forgotten?

    Well said, Uncle Kit! I don’t think they are able to do it, though. You shall spearhead and show them what a real leader can do!

    The Liow / Mah threat, is just that. Just a threat to put up a show to their supporters. Afterall, they were ignored by DUMNO. Now they act to show tough. Neither of them have the guts, nor the conviction to reason wan lah. They just talk to appease their audience. Soon like ADUN Leong in Kedah, they will U urn wan. Just wait and see.
