Perak political crisis can be ended in 30 days – with snap state elections

UMNO leaders, particularly, the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and the UMNO Youth leader, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein should co-operate with Pakatan Rakyat to keep the palace above the political crisis in Perak as the issue in contention is not about the institution of constitutional monarchy but the popular will of the voters.

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah has rightly pointed out in his blog about the real nature of the constitutional crisis in Perak – it is not about the status of the Rulers like the 1993 constitutional crisis “which arose from an ugly confrontation between Umno and the Rulers over a question that had direct and profound implications on their sovereignty and that of the Yang Dipertuan Agong” but about the legitimacy of the process by which a new state government has been formed in Perak.

This is why Abdullah and other UMNO leaders created consternation yesterday when they sought to present the Perak political and constitutional crisis as a crisis of the system of constitutional monarchy using the language of “disrespect the Sultan” and even “treason” when it is solely and strictly about whether UMNO should be allowed to orchestrate an immoral, undemocratic, illegal and unconstitutional power grab in Perak.

The best way to uphold the system of constitutional monarchy in the country is for all political parties, whether Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat, to keep the Rulers above the political fray – especially on the question as to who should form the legitimate and democratically-elected government in Perak.

The immoral, illegal, undemocratic and unconstitutional Umno power grab in Perak has created a political and constitutional crisis of two Mentris Besar in the state – and the best and most democratic solution is to return the mandate to the voters of Perak by the dissolution of the Perak State Assembly for a fresh state election to be held to resolve the political and constitutional crisis.

In Abdullah’s final 40 days as the fifth Prime Minister and Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s pre-40 days as the sixth Prime Minister, both of them must act as leaders for all Malaysians and resist the temptation to use the powers of the Federal government to deny the people of Perak their democratic right to resolve the political crisis in the state as by resorting to emergency powers or draconian laws like the Internal Security Act or the Sedition Act.

The incendiary speech by Hishammuddin last night is most deplorable, as he delivered what has been described as a “thinly-veiled threat” against Pakatan Rakyat “that those who are willing to destroy or damage the royalty and betray the country will pay the price” – a description which will be more apt for UMNO for its role in the 1993 constitutional crisis as it has no application whatsoever with any political party in the Pakatan Rakyat in the current Perak crisis.

It is a great disservice to the institution of constitutional monarchy for political leaders to drag the royalty into the political fray by distorting political differences as one of treason or whether one is “willing to destroy or damage the royalty and betray the country”, when this is not the case.

Malaysians should be united to face the worst global economic crisis in 80 years instead of allowing our body politic to be divided and poisoned by Umno’s undemocratic, immoral, illegal and unconstitutional power grab in Perak.

Instead of months of stand-off and stalemate in the Perak political and constitutional crisis, let it be resolved swiftly in the most democratic manner which could be accepted by all Perakians without poisoning the Malaysian body politic for years and decades so that national energies could be mobilized to face the looming economic crisis – by holding a snap Perak state elections which could be held within 30 days although the law allows it to be held within 60 days of the dissolution of the Perak State Assembly.

This is the most acceptable and democratic solution to the Perak political crisis. Let Pakatan Rakyat and Barisan Nasional leaders agree to return the mandate to the voters of Perak to elect the government of their choice – which will also further enhance the institution of constitutional monarchy by staying above the fray of political parties which is best resolved in the hustings.

    Najib will never allow snap elections in Perak because he knows that Bn has no chance of winning enough seats to form the govt. It is the same case as India not willing to have a referendum on Kashmir because it knows that the Muslim majprity there will vote to join Pakistan.

  2. #2 by Kelvenho on Friday, 20 February 2009 - 1:42 pm

    I agree with k1980. Najib will use the emergency law and ISA to
    hold power in Perak. The only solution for PR is to send a petition to the conference of Rulers to request for the dissolution of the Perak
    Assembly. Ordinary poor people will suffer the most as this crisis
    prolong. The world economy is already so bad and yet our BN politicians never bother to think about the people welfare.
    What a disgrace !

    They will declare Emergency and have the army go in before they will call a snap election – I guarantee it. In fact, it looks pretty sure that will be the logical conclusion. Dead people on the streets? They already had blood on their hands in May 13, 1969 and last night they clearly show they were more than willing to repeat history…

  5. #5 by ekans on Friday, 20 February 2009 - 2:01 pm

    Can the BN-led federal govt be allowed to interfere too much in the Perak state govt crisis?
    First, the role of fed govt leader no.2, who then happens to be the Perak state BN leader, in enticing 3 state reps to leave PR and become ‘independents’ who suddenly happen to be friendly to BN.
    Second, the role of no.2 again, of course ‘officially’ in his capacity as the Perak state BN leader, to meet HRH Sultan of Perak and ‘convincingly’ present his case that 28 BN state reps and 3 ex-PR ‘independent but BN-friendly’ state reps have the majority over the remaining 28 PR state reps, in order to form a new BN-led state govt.
    Third, the role of fed govt leader no.1 in meeting HRH Sultan of Perak to reinforce or back-up the earlier visit by his no.2.
    Fourth, when the news broke that HRH Sultan of Perak has consented to the formation of a new BN-led state govt, the fed govt no.1 told the media that the earlier planned federal govt projects in Perak can be resumed.
    Today, the NST reported that no.1 had said that snap polls and federal rule in Perak will be ruled out.
    Is the federal govt actually allowed to make such decisions and which is clearly a blatant interference in the affairs of the Perak state administration?
    If so, shouldn’t such interference by the fed govt be regarded also as a disrespect to the sovereignity of the Sultan of Perak as the head of state?
    I believe that the current stalemate should have already come to the attention and knowledge of HRH Sultan Perak, and if there is no quick workable solution in sight, hopefully HRH will consent to dissolve the state assembly and return the power of govt back to the people of Perak via the ballot box.

    Dear All,

    The on-going political impasse in Perak has demonstrated that neither party is willing to surrender power just like that i.e. losing power following defection(s) of legislators to opposing camp/party. Therefore, even if Pakatan Rakyat manages to secure sufficient number of MPs from Barisan Nasional to defect in order to form the Federal government, UMNO and BN will not be giving up without a fight. The definition of fight here could mean to take part in legal recourse like what Pakatan Rakyat is doing through MB Nizar Jamaluddin, to call for sudden snap election like what YB Lim Kit Siang and most of the big wigs in PR are asking for in the case of Perak and of course the most dreaded path, ie to take part in physical struggle in trying to overcome the impasse. In other words, Malaysians should be prepared for all consequences brought about by politicians who are struglling to advance their respective ideologies. I believe no one in the right frame of mind would be so naive to believe that UMNO is sincere in defending the rights of the Sultan. UMNO is merely using the palace to advance themselves and its interests. Therefore, it is true indeed that all politicians say things that will only benefit themselves. They are less inclined to ensure the rakyat are well protected prior to achieving their self interests first. This is the sad truth and applies to many politicians out there. They say different things at different times, suiting their own political agendas.

    “Deft tHE bAN” this is not what is expected from the PM.

    with regards to the referendum in Kashmir, india is prepared provided pakistan moves to pre 1947 border. in other words pakistan must move out of the present occupied terrotrries of kashmir, only than a referendum can be carried without fear and favour.

    Uncle Kit, I would like to ask this question with due respect. You have been raising suggestion after suggestion on so many issues, directing them at our political leaders of the ruling party. Do you think they would listen to you?? Of these many suggestions, how many have actually be agreed to by them?? You can suggest until the cows come home, gone out and come home again but I believe, no one will agree to you, for obvious reasons. So perhaps, YB, you will have to change your mode of operations in your blog here.

    if the b-nee lead government is really understand the coming crisis we as a nation facing they should stop all the current politic chaos in perak as soon as posisble.
    the paliament should start to discuss the economy issue facing our nation,how to create more jobs for our peoples.

    we are facing the century worse economy situation that never happen after world war II.

    We all know whatever suggested here will never happen, as one from a poor family in Perak, I really hope we can have a snap election, and I’m sure I’m from the category of the majority who thinking the same, but what can we expect from the barbarians in UMNO? This is a tough time for all Perakians.

    Yang derhaka sebenarnya di Perak ialah UMNO/BN yang sengaja melibatkan DYMM Sultan dalam permainan politik kotor mereka. Kita tidak tahu apa cara yang telah dilakukan mereka untuk “memaksa” Sultan mengambil langkah yang bertentangan dengan undang-undang serta konvensyen seperti yang pernah diungkapkan oleh Baginda sendiri dalam buku dan ucapan-ucapan Baginda dan anakanda Baginda sebelum ini. Jelas, kalau sekiranya krisis ini dibiarkan berterusan, imej institusi Kesultanan akan semakin terjejas. Saya setuju bahawa sistem Constitutional Monarchy perlu dipertahankan. Tetapi ini hanya boleh dilakukan setelah kepercayaan dan hormat pada sistem itu dipulihkan semula. Kini ia terjejas teruk. Apa yang perlu dilakukan di Perak sekarang? Saya rasa penyelesaiannya terpulang pada badan yang bernama Dewan Negara Perak, menurut peruntukan Perkara 21 (1) Bahagian Kedua Undang-undang Tubuh Kerajaan Perak. Demi kesejahteraan sistem Raja Berperlembagaan di Perak, diharap Dewan Negara Perak akan mengambil langkah yang sewajarnya dengan seberapa segera.

    It shows that the Minister does not know what he was saying, or more correctly logic does not work with his brain. He is interested that declare that the people will pay the price for mismanagement of the government, to the extent of emergency rule when it suits them. They did it in 1969 when the faired badly in the election and now they will do it belatedly as AAB is on the way out.

    There are 13 states in the country, nine headed by hereditary rulers and 4 headed by Governors appointed. The role of the Heads of state government is the same, to uphold the constitution, without fear or favour. The governors are selected by the government which considers the candidate capable of performing the duties expected of the position as Head of the states concerned. The hereditary rulers are entitled to the position and are expected to perform as well as appointed governors on pedigree consideration. As all states have equal status so are the power of the heads of the constituent states of Malaysia. As constitutional rulers, the official decision of the Rulers who are born or appointed to the position as head of the constituent states should be in accordance to the constitution. A request for court decision does not damage the royalty, and the country is not sold because of court action. In a similar situation that happened in 1966 when the Chief Minister of Sarawak Stephen Kalong Ningkam was dismissed by the Governor of Sarawak the federal government and the people including the UMNO Youth accepted the verdict of the court civilly. Tunku was the PM then. That implies of course that the quality of the PM we have has sunk to all time low, and certainly, the quality of UMNO Youth Chief can at best equate those of ruffians.

    The BN from Day 1, pitting the Malays against the Dayaks, the Indians against the Ibans, the Chinese against Orang Asal.

    Instigating the Muslims against the Christians, the Hindus against Buddhists, baning Allah + body snatching.

    Stripe the Royal houses naked + blame it on others with a racial overtones. Destroying the affections we have with the Tuanku(s) + Raja Raja.

    Malaysians had enough with your corruptions + pretence of social engineering. We Malaysians want to live peacefully with our compatriots, regardless of race or religion. We want to progress as a people.

    Please go BN. You are not needed here. Stop destroying us. Bring you NEP, ISA, Printing Act, rampasan kuasa, peeeping tom habits + all those rubbish like Samy Velu, Hishammudin, Khir Toyo, Dr M etcs to Zimbabwe, your style is still in fashion there.

  28. #28 by illuminati on Friday, 20 February 2009 - 9:26 pm

    In every node and corner, Umno has its man planted there to ‘safeguard’ its position and members whether it involves graft, threats and other ‘dirty tricks’. So soon, the MACC has shown its hand that it’s nothing more than the usual crap reform promised by them.

    By now we should know that those who seek true justice and reform are walking on thin ice. A party in its death throes will resort to any underhand tactics to stay afloat. The other component parties in BN are muted, Umno is the one pulling the trigger and it may well go its own way eventually to continue its hegemony.

    Too many unsavoury incidents in recent days are clear indications that a concerted campaign to discredit and put the PR in a bad light is going on. Can it be the work of just one individual? No way. It needs the backing of a party machinery with the power and resources to carry it out. Any fool can see that.

    It appears that these are desperate men and they will do anything to stay in power. We are living in dangerous time. But let us pray the will of the rakyat rooting for fair play, true democracy, equality and justice will win the day eventually.

    Malaysia’s future is bleak if Umno is eventually controlled by the party hardliners and we all know who they are and where they stand.

    What’s wrong with using one’s own private car for work and have the car maintained on the company’s account? Many companies do not provide cars and even if they do some opt for the employees to use their own cars, and allow claims on fuel and maintenance.

    So, what’s the big deal with Tan Sri Khalid’s case? Chicken feet!

    UMNO and everybody knows that BN will loose big time in the next election in the same way that they know they will loose badly if the State Assembly is dissolved in Perak today. You can be sure there will be no more such elections in Malaysia. Now is the time for them to find excuses to declare emergency rule and place all opposition members under ISA. What better excuse than use the Palace as a reason to justify this means. The simple minded Malays in the kampongs will really think this is happening and lend their support to the most corrupted depots on BN. You know the way UMNO is organised now, if you are not dead rotten to the core, corrupted to the tilt, racist to high heaven you cannot hold position of power. So you get the worst of their kind to lead the country. This is the destiny of Malaysia. This is the destiny of communal politics. For those of you in MIC, MCA and Gerakan wake up your stupid idea. Your time is long pass. There is no place for you in this struggle. If the UMNO and their dirty tricks win, it will be the end of Malaysia. We will join the rank of Zimbawee in less than ten years.

By not doing any thing to resolve the impasse at Perak, it certainly appear that come GE13, BN will be kaput! Having read the corruptions made by the Toyol guy, he had the audacity to stand for election as UMNO Youth Leader. This will bury UMno even faster. The below 40 of today wont bite all the slogans you are putting up any more!
    The current behaviour and action of characters like TOyol can only sink BN faster and deeper into the Pacific Deep! Change so that maybe BN still has a chance for a two party system for the country! Why are you still operating as if we are in the 60s??

    and if the illegitimate perak “chief minister” has
    insisted he will attend the state assembly regardless
    of decision of the speaker the the illegitimate perak
    chief minister should be detained under the isa
    for posing a threat to the stability of the lawful
    perak government.

    Perak state assembly Speaker, V. Sivakumar, must take great care to prevent himself from being “kidnapped” by the notorious “Najis Gang”. Should he go missing, Hee (deputy Speaker) will take over his place and reverse all the things that he did recently.

    Days ago, Hee claimed that she would resign. However there is now no sign that she would do so. Apparently BN realized that Hee is the key person to break the deadlock in Perak.

    “The best way to uphold the system of constitutional monarchy in the country is for all political parties, whether Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat, to keep the Rulers above the political fray …” KIT

    In that case please explain why PR is asking the Sultan of Selangor to determine the status and future of this one woman who chose to sleep with a Malay man? What has that got to do with anything??

    According to sources, the approach to the Sultan of Selangor was made on a ‘consultative’ basis as a matter of courtesy. It certainly wasn’t a case of asking the Sultan for a decision.

    People are quick to pour sympathy and praise Eli Wong for the “work” she has done on environment. Well, may I know what she has done? I remember I wrote this piece on May 17, 2008 when she became the Selangor Exco and I leave it to you to judge.

    The hot and dry season is again in our midst. I can’t help but notice that the sky is getting hazier and my breathing a little more difficult. But what irks me most was the press conference interview given by Elizabeth Wong, the Selangor State Exco for Environment that I read this morning. According to her and as reported in the Star: “The illegal immigrants are the major culprits who carry out open burning in Johan Setia, Klang, causing the air in the area to deteriorate. About 200 of them living in the area have been doing open burning for agricultural purposes on the 350 acre forest area. The authorities including enforcement officers from the immigrations and the Department of Environment (DOE) have been trying to catch the culprits but all efforts seem to be in vain. We will organise a joint effort together with the Immigration Department, police, the DOE, Rela, Klang Municipal Council and Fire Department to catch them. But we will not tell when it will take place.”

    This is a real baloney, Elizabeth Wong. How can this happen – illegal immigrants burning state forest for agriculture purposes and the authorities have problems apprehending them? Either the illegal immigrants are super humans who can disappear into thin air each time enforcement officers come a calling or you are just a gullible fool listening to cock and bull stories.

    State forests are being burnt openly for agriculture and in some instances the lands even sold by syndicates to landless farmers. We have litany of enforcement agencies – Immigration Department, Police, Department of Environment, Rela, Municipal Council, and Fire Department – but they all seem so helpless. Do you know what each of these departments is supposed to do, Elizabeth Wong? Do you know for sure whether these departments have actually carried out their jobs?

    Look, we are not here talking about house break-in or petty theft where the culprits can be anywhere. It is really beyond me to comprehend how the state forests could be burnt by illegal immigrants for agriculture purposes and yet there is nothing much that the authorities can do about it. It is agriculture, remember? There must be some form of semi-permanent settlement. The land must be tilled and crops planted. May I know who come to attend the crops; who come to harvest the crops? The authorities have problems catching them and the State Exco believes that? I think we need a smarter Exco. For a while I thought Pakatan Rakyat is going to make a difference. The more I follow the events unfolding, the more the problem stays the same. I am sorry, this is not personal. I don’t know who is this Elizabeth Wong, never met her and never heard of her before March 8, 2008.

    This is what I am adding today: Now I know her a little better – but not really on her work, but more on how she spent her busy schedule.

    I quote one blogger comment on our sleepy, flipflop and lame duck guy:-
    “This is truly hypocrisy of the highest order. When the Sultan of Terengganu decided to appoint an MB of his choice, this very man said it was unconstitutional. And if this is not enough, Umno members went on a demonstration and called the sultan names.

    What I would like to know is, and so do many Malaysians, which part of the Terengganu constitution does it state that it is wrong for the Sultan to appoint an MB?

    Come on, prime minister, you can’t have it both ways. When a ruling is made against Umno by the royalty, you guys label the sultan with all sorts of names. But when it comes to the opposition, you change you song entirely and try to act pro-royalty which you all are not.

    You can fool some people some of the time, but certainly, you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

    Recently this guy making a big huha on the Gaza issue and yet he kept mum on the sufferings of the Sri Lanka innocent
    tamils. If not hypocricy to the core , then what ??
    Real disgusting to have such an unethical bum running Bolehland.

    Below is the reason why V. Sivakumar suspended the Perak Mentri Besar Datuk Dr Zambry Abd Kadir and his six executive council members from assembly sittings:

    Sivakumar noted that under the state constitution there was no provision stating that any party suddenly claiming to have the majority could or must see the Sultan of Perak to ask to form the next government.

    He said Article 16(6) of the state constitution stated that the mentri besar of the day could seek an audience with the Sultan of Perak to dissolve the assembly if he ceased to command the confidence of the majority.

    “The Clause clearly refers to the mentri besar at the time which was Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Ja­maluddin. No one else but the mentri besar has the right to seek an audience with the Sultan,” he said.

    “After meeting the seven assemblymen, it was clear that they had committed wrong under the state constitution. Therefore, I had no other choice. I had to follow the rules,” he said.

    The Perak Sultan made his decision on the change of government in Perak. UMNO leaders AAB, Hishamuddin, Muhyuddin, Rafudah Aziz, Ali Rustam, Syed Hamid , just to name a few, claimed that the wishes of the Sultan are the command of the people, and in their words, it was disrespect, disloyal, and treason for not accepting what the Sultan has commanded.

    The MACC has now been turned into Malaysian Agency for Cars and Cows which was quick to act on the wishes of UMNO leaders in detriment to the interest of the nation. The ACA in the past had found 18 sharks but they are still swimming freely in Bolehland.
    The Sultan of Perak has no doubt been aware of public perception about UMNO leaders. The Minister of Education asked the people to rise up against any opinion which differs from that of the Sultan. So the issue of right or wrong should be settled by the prestige and position of the person expressing such opinion, rather than on the truth of the issue concerned. If the students follow the thought process of the Education Minister, they will clearly be misfit. So Hishamuddin is not fit to be Minister at all, and the Sultan would do the nation a favour in asking him to quit politics. From the ways Hishamuddin has expressed his loyalty to the Sultan of Perak he would leave politics if he is asked by the Sultan of Perak to do so.

    Hamid is clearly unfit to be Minister of Home Affairs when he used ISA to provide personal protection for a lady reporter. He did not know his duties, and is not fit to be a minister. He claimed that it would be disloyal to the King for not following the wishes of the Sultan. The only way he would leave would be if he is asked by the Sultan of Perak to do so.

    The Sultan of Perak would have taken note that many among UMNO ministers are unusually rich compared to what the salary and wages they received in their official capacity. MACC are now concerns with cars and cows, and in any case would not act against BN ministers. The corruption in the government is acknowledged by all government leaders. They know very well that they needed only to pay lip services to prove that they were above board. They will leave politics if the Sultan of Perak would command them to.

    The Sultan of Perak has now received confirmation that his words are the command of UMNO leaders, who urged others to accept without question. The population will not be able to vote corrupted UMNO leaders out of their party positions, or government posts. With those unfits in politics and government, the country is doomed. The Sultan of Perak has now the unique opportunity to clear the unwanted politicians by his command. His Majesty needs only to tell those UMNO opportunists to leave, and they would do so willingly without showing disrespect or defiance, out of their loyalty to the Sultan. .The question for the Sultan is not whether he could save the country from those rotten UMNO opportunitsts, but rather whether he was willing to do so. His majesty’s words are UMNO leaders’ command.

    The people have accepted the fate that the system constitutional monarch adopted by the country renders the fate of the people at the mercy of UMNO leaders. They are pleasantly surprised that the country can be saved according to the wishes of the Sultan of Perak, if only he believes a shared destiny for the people of all races. The people are waiting for the Sultan to act. Just like he acted in Perak, we believe he could do the right thing for the country without fear or favour of a small group of people. He has the wellness of the country in his heart.

    According to sources, the approach to the Sultan of Selangor was made on a ‘consultative’ basis as a matter of courtesy.”

    Don’t be misled by the polite language used when it comes to matters of the Palace. It is the same thing. Even if it is not why consult the sultan on a personal issue like that? We ask the sultan to give due respect to the institution that he represent and has come to symbolise and has taken UMNO to task for failing to show the respect the institution deserves and now we are doing exactly the same thing!

    This woman should think about her party first and resign. If she had done this earlier, PKR and PR would not today be in the eye of the political storm. PR is not in the position to take such shots at its fragile political coalition. It is fragile, not because Karpal shows it so but it is so because Karpal makes it so.

    There is a big difference between the problem she is responsible for and has put her party into, and the one involving the Selangor MB. The former is about the poor lack of judgment which has put the integrity of her party and party leadership into dire straits. The latter concerns a legal matter. It involves a legal issue and the courts would be the place to go to in order to resolve it. The MB can go about his duties as MB without being distracted in the way this assemblywoman could not hope to do.

    Of course the entire thing is politically motivated but the fact that it is so does not mean she should not resign. Resign and spare the party leadership from continued embarassment. Her problem with the media is a serious distraction to her and the party leadership.

    I call on the PKR-PR party and coalition leadership to extract immediate resignation from her, and be done with and sends the clear message to its members that if they intend to vie for party positions in government they better come clean with both their public and their private lives.

    Zamry now beg the people to recognized him as Perak MB as he was appointed by the Sultan. So Nizar also appointed by the Sultan.

    Chinese school have been all this while begging and begging for fund but now Zamry seem allocating much fund to please the people now.

    Why do it know after all was it not the reality that BN has been in power over 50 years? Why have you not done it over 50 years and suddenly just to please people support you yoourself become a beggar to pleas for people support.

    If you are legitimate MB you need not to plea for support. If you have been fair all this while which you have all the time to be fair yet you have let people down. Why plea now.

    You should do what is fair as opposition and win back the trust the Perak people has put into you over the last 50 yaers.

    You need not to be in the rule all this while to win back the trust of the people. You can if you BN fellow really sincere want to change for the better and not just power crazy.

    You now making use the Sultan and try to create a picture that PR are against the Sultan. Why you want to use this dirty tactic while you know very well that the mentality of people at this age have been very much matured and well informed and therefore they will not believe in all BN butshit any more.

    If you BN believe in the result of the survey. You know very well Perak people have lost trust in total in BN. survey say majority want to go to fresh election and and decide once and for all yet you BN fellow coward out and hide behind power shield and Now begging for the People Trust.

    Do you really believe this is the way of politic in Malaysia? You BN has total lost your heads and mind.

    The more dirty tactic BN use the more repel the people will be. Don;t you know that you BN are digging your own political grave?

    Why don’t you BN make the necessary changes and equip your self and fight gentlemanly with PR?

    Why you BN want to drag the monarch into politic and create the picture that PR are against the Sultan? Just because you BN want to cling to the power? Do you thick this will be, if short term will it last in the long term.

    The trust from the people can only be won by real action and fair action that was needed.

    Well Mr. limkamput…. i am not sure exactly what point you are trying to point out here.

    But just to share a story i heard from someone who actually operates a farm in the vicinity.

    Yes, is is very hard to catch these illegal immigrants. The owners who employ these illegal immigrants have contacts within the authorities who inform then beforehand when raids are going to occur.

    The illegals are then told to basically go hide as deep as they can in the jungle. They are given nothing except the clothes on their back and maybe some supplies.

    They live like animals with no roof no nothing. The person who related the story to me comments that’s it was impossible for him to imagine how these illegals survive. Maybe some actually don’t.

    When the coast is clear, the illegals come out from the jungles again and continue life again as normal.Even if some are caught, they are easily replaced with new illegals and so it goes on. The illegals cannot be linked to the employers so nothing happens to the employers.

    Hearing these, do you think you could do better than Elizabeth Wong? Tell me what you would have done if you had been in charge?

    According to mission of the Election Commission (EC) of Malaysia, the EC strives to ensure that the citizens of Malaysia are given the opportunity to participate in the election of their representatives in the formation of the Government and to safeguard this right through free and fair elections.

    However, what we have seen so far is a totally different scenario as to how the team chaired by Tan Sri Abdul Aziz bin Mohd Yusof has failed to effectively execute its mission.

    … (Please click on the link below for the remaining article)…

    To restore the reputation of the EC and to ensure fair, free, and clean by-elections in April, I urge the opposition leaders to appeal to Yang di-Pertuan Agong, or at least to debate in the upcoming parliament meetings, on the following agenda:

    1. To allow postal votes for all voters who find difficulty of returning to their hometowns to vote on April 7;
    2. To challenge the refusal of the EC to vacant the state seats of Changkat Jering, Behrang, and Jelapang for the by-elections;
    3. To update the electoral roll to provide the opportunities to the qualified ones to participate in the by-elections;
    4. To expand the postal votes to the qualified Malaysian voters who work overseas however not fall into the categories of armed forces, Police Field Force, election officials on duty, government officers serving overseas, students studying overseas, and spouses.
    5. To order Abdul Aziz to step down from his position should he fail to explain how the decision regarding both nomination and polling days was taken with consideration of the interest of ALL parties involved.
