Kini tiba masanya peneroka Felda bangkit semula dalam PRK Cameron Highlands bagi memulakan era Malaysia Baru yang adil, makmur dan sejahtera untuk semua rakyat Malaysia.

Sebelum ini, penyelewengan, penyalahgunaan kuasa dan perbuatan pemimpin mencuri wang rakyat, iaitu kleptokrasi, pada era Datuk Seri Najib Razak telah menyebabkan rakyat sengsara di bawah tekanan ekonomi.

Is MIC going to concede Cameron Highland seat to UMNO because of Hadi’s warning of “hell” and PAS’ 3578 votes?

PAS President, Datuk Seri Hadi Awang has finally showed his true colours that he is not qualified to be a Malaysian political leader representing all Malaysians regardless of race, religion or region when he came out with his antediluvian warning to Muslims to place their trust in Muslim leaders regardless of their wickedness, claiming that believers will end up in hell if led by non-Muslims.

Now Malaysians can understand why PAS under his leadership was prepared to give full support to former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak who has brought infamy and ignominy to Malaysia by transforming it into a global kleptocracy!

No wonder that under Hadi’s leadership, PAS is becoming quite a practitioner of the toxic and vicious politics of lies, hate, fear, race and religion which is the single greatest threat to the survival of a tolerant, harmonious and successful plural nation of diverse races, religions, languages and cultures.

No wonder Hadi can strike the posture that 99 per cent of the 1.3 billion Muslims in the world living in 179 countries which have ratified the International Convention for the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD), including 55 of the 57 member nations of Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC), such as Saudi Arabia, Indonesia, Turkey, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Palestine, Algeria, Morocco, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Pakistan are very wrong and misguided as ICERD is a “Freemason Agenda” to destroy Islam.

What is MCA’s stand that the MIC candidate for Cameron Highlands by-election should be dropped in favour of an UMNO candidate?

The MIC top leaders seemed to have gone into hiding or appointed the UMNO Supreme Council member, Tan Sri Noh Omar, to be the MIC spokesman to respond to questions directed at MIC leaders.

History of sorts had been made as this is the first time that the MIC national leadership has to appoint an UMNO leader to be its spokesman.

My question yesterday was – Who will decide who will contest the Cameron Highlands by-election on behalf of Barisan Nasional? Barisan Nasional, UMNO, MIC or PAS?

But Noh has also demanded that MIC give way to UMNO to field the Barisan Nasional candidate for the Cameron Highlands by-election.

It has been reported that the latest development about the BN candidature for Cameron Highlands by-election had come as a shock to the top MIC leaders as most MIC divisions had sent people to assist in Cameron Highlands. Read the rest of this entry »

More productive for Najib to use his daily multiple FaceBook postings to explain the lessons to be learnt from his failure as sixth Prime Minister to bring the Orang Asli into the national mainstream of development in the past eight years

After he had been evicted from Putrajaya and his ouster as the Prime Minister of Malaysia in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, Datuk Seri Najib Razak has suddenly become a very prolific user of his FaceBook account, making multiple postings each day.

However, his FaceBook silence after my statement in Brinchang on Sunday that he had failed the Orang Aslis as Prime Minister for he had focussed on the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal instead of bringing the Orang Asli into the national mainstream of development is tantamount to his admission that he had i failed the Orang Asli community in his eight years as Prime Minister.

It would be more productive if Najib had used his daily multiple FaceBook postings to explain the lessons to be learnt from his failure as sixth Prime Minister of Malaysia to bring the Orang Asli into the national mainstream of development in the past eight years. Read the rest of this entry »

Who will decide who will contest Cameron Highlands by-election on behalf of Barisan Nasional – Barisan Nasional, UMNO, MIC or PAS?

Nomination Day for Cameron Highlands by-election is set for Saturday, January 12 and polling two weeks later on January 26.

Who will decide who will contest the Cameron Highlands by-election on behalf of Barisan Nasional? Barisan Nasional, UMNO, MIC or PAS?

The statement by the MIC Secretary-General S. Vell Paari that UMNO has not requested to contest the Cameron Highlands by-elections means nothing at all.

MIC should immediately quit Barisan Nasional as it is not allowed to contest in Cameron Highlands by-election

It is now clear that MIC is not allowed to contest in the Cameron Highlands by-election.

UMNO will be contesting in the by-election.

Cameron Highlands had never been contested by UMNO in the past sixty years since Merdeka, and the latest development shows the arrogance of UMNO as far as the other BN parties are concerned.

MIC should immediately quit Barisan Nasional if it has any honour or dignity left, as it should not be another MCA.

Cameron Highlands by-election is in fact the opening shot of Pakatan Harapan for the 15th General Election to capture the Pahang State Government to be able to resolve the land problem of the Orang Asli

Cameron Highlands is the cynosure of the country for a historic by-election which will be held this month to determine who will be the Member of Parliament for Cameron Highlands.

Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is confident that Barisan Nasional will have an easy victory in the by-election. But just as he was proven wrong in the last general election in May last year when he was confident of an easy and great victory to the extent of BN winning back the two-thirds parliamentary majority, I hope that Najib will be proven wrong again that BN will have a victory in the Cameron Highlands by-election.

Najib had failed the Orang Aslis as Prime Minister by focusing on the international 1MDB corruption and money-laundering scandal instead of bringing the Orang Asli into the national mainstream of development

One question uppermost in the minds of the voters of Cameron Highlands is why the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, is positioning himself as the primary spokesman for the Barisan Nasional in the Cameron Highlands by-election on January 26.

Najib said in Pekan yesterday that he is confident that the Barisan Nasional will retain its victory in the Cameron Highlands by-election on Jan 26.

As former Prime Minister, why Najib had no sense of shame that the Cameron Highlands by-election is being held because of money-politics, vote-buying and corrupt electoral practices?

Manogaran will be voice of Orang Asli, not only from Cameron Highlands but of Malaysia, in Parliament if he is elected MP on January 26

M. Manogaran will be the voice of Orang Asli, not only from Cameron Highlands, but from all over Malaysia, in Parliament if he is elected Member of Parliamnt for Cameron Highands on January 26.

Although MIC Vice President C Sivarraajh was elected Member of Parliament from May 9, 2018 until the end of November when his election was declared null and void because of money politics and electoral corruption, Sivaraajh had not asked a single question on the problems of the Orang Asli in Cameron Highlands in the two parliamentary meetings in the six months he was MP.

Annuar Musa as good as admitting that UMNO/BN had been committing “daylight robberies” to overstay in power in Putrajaya

I am surprised by the outburst by the UMNO Secretary-General Tan Sri Annuar Musa yesterday contesting my claim that DAP and Pakatan Harapan will be the underdogs in the Cameron Highlands by-election on January 26, 2019, and that my being trapped in Kampong Orang Asli Simoi Lama in Ulu Jelai on New Year’s Eve was an indictment of the failures and neglect of the UMNO/Barisan Nasional government over the last few decades to uplift the Orang Asli community into the mainstream of national development, where the Orang Asli community can enjoy access to the most basic necessities which the Orang Asli people are entitled to as citizens of Malaysia, whether in medical aid, educational and economic opportunities, basic infrastructure facilities of clean water and electricity, and most important of all to them, land rights.

Annuar was shedding crocodile’s tears. Read the rest of this entry »

DAP/Pakatan Harapan will be the underdog in the Cameron Highlands by-election on January 26, and it will be a miracle if DAP/Pakatan Harapan can win but we are in the era of “miracles” with the historic decision of May 9, 2018

DAP and Pakatan Harapan will be the underdog in the Cameron Highlands by-election on January 26, 2019 and it will be a miracle if DAP/Pakatan Harapan can win but we are in the era of “miracles” with the historic decision of May 9, 2018 so we must dare to dream and work for of another miracle next month.

The very fact that we are gathered here in Kampong Orang Asli Simoi Lama, Pos Lenjang, which is not planned as all of us should be in different places at this time whether in Bentong, Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya to ring in the 2019 New Year in New Year Eve celebrations is probably Almighty’s unfathomable ways of highlighting the plight of the Orang Asli in Malaysia sixty years after Merdeka.

It is no exaggeration to say that the Orang Asli community, the first inhabitants in the country, have become the most neglected community in the country after six decades of nation-building and it is time that all Malaysians from all communities and religions should unite as one powerful force to uplift and catapult the Orang Asli community into the 21st century and wipe out this shame and blot on Malaysia’s development history.

We are in the age of Internet where information travels at the speed of light – but from here, we are completely cut off from the outside world, as we cannot communicate with anyone outside this kampong. Read the rest of this entry »

Call for the holding of a National Orang Asli Conference in Cameron Highlands to present a blueprint for Orang Asli upliftment in New Malaysia

The Cameron Highlands by-election will be historic for many reasons, including:

1. It will highlight the Pakatan Harapan’s commitment as expressed in the May 9, 2018 decision of the 14th General Election to save Malaysia by transforming Malaysia from a global kleptocracy into a leading nation of integrity;

2. It will be the first by-election caused by the commitment of Orang Asli to a clean and incorruptible government, electoral integrity and hatred of electoral abuses including corruption and money politics. Corruption, money politics and electoral offences took place all over the country, but such electoral offences had been allowed to take place with impunity and immunity until the Orang Asli from Cameron Highlands took a stand with several of them becoming key witnesses in the election appeal which led to a Cameron Highlands by-election.

Sense of satisfaction that what I had advocated in Parliament in the 1970s – lowering the voting age to 18 – has been green-lighted by the Cabinet

I feel a sense of satisfaction that what I had advocated in Parliament in the 1970s – the lowering of the voting age to 18 – has been green-lighted by the Cabinet.

After the Cabinet meeting two days ago, the Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul announced that the cabinet has agreed to lower the voting age from 21 to 18

This however would require an amendment to the Federal Constitution to be approved by a two-thirds majority in the Dewan Rakyat for the decision to take effect. Read the rest of this entry »

The most ideal result is for the MCA and PAS candidates in the two by-elections to lose their deposits which will be a fatal blow to the incipient MCA/UMNO/PAS unholy alliance which will cause untold national disunity and dissension in coming years

I was in Seri Setia earlier this evening, as tomorrow, the voters of Balakong and Seri Setia will be casting their votes in the two by-elections.

The most ideal result is for the MCA and PAS candidates in the two by-elections to lose their deposits which will be a fatal blow to the incipient MCA/UMNO/PAS unholy alliance which will cause untold national disunity and dissension in coming years.

On the historic night of May 9, 2018, when the Election Commission downed tools and refused to announce results of the 14th General Elections, as it was clear that UMNO/BN had finally been rejected by the voters of Malaysia, my greatest concern was that Pakatan Harapan could secure a simple majority of at least 112 parliamentary seats to form the new Federal Government of Malaysia.

If there was a hung Parliament, and no contender could get a simple majority of 112 parliamentary seats, then PAS would be able to play the “king-maker” role as envisaged by the PAS President, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, who had announced the PAS objective of winning 40 parliamentary seats in the 14GE to be the “kingmaker” as to who would be the Prime Minsiter and which coalition form the Government in Putrajaya.

Call on MCA by-election candidate Tan Chee Teong to make a last-minute withdrawal from the Balakong by-election as a protest against the shame, indignity and irresponsibility of the MCA/UMNO/PAS unholy alliance

The former MCA Negri Sembilan leader Lim Ching Fui was the only voice so far to protest against the MCA/UMNO/PAS unholy alliance, which has been forged in the Balakong by-election with PAS leaders speaking at MCA ceramahs for the first time in the 69-year MCA history.

Lim Ching Fui said he could not understand why MCA would accept PAS’ assistance to campaign in the Balakong by-election, warning that this will culminate in the party losing the one thing which it is left with – dignity.

It is debatable whether MCA has still got any dignity left, having been reduced to a 7/11 party in the 2013 General Election with seven MPs and eleven State Assemblymen, and further reduced to ½ party in the 2018 general election, with one MP and two State Assemblymen.

There was a time when the MCA had four Ministers, 31 MPs and 76 State Assembly seats.

The significance of the Balakong and Seri Setia by-elections

The results of the Balakong and Seri Setia by-elections in Selangor on Sept. 8 will not change the Selangor State Government but their importance and significance far outweigh the outcome of two State Assembly by-elections in Selangor.

In fact, they will be regarded as a barometer for Malaysian politics, not only in Selangor, but throughout the country for the next few years.

It is an open secret that UMNO leaders are working for an end to the Pakatan Harapan Government in as short as two years, and the outcome of the two by-elections in Selangor will by used by the UMNO leaders as a yardstick as to whether their plot and conspiracy to engineer the disintegration of the Pakatan Harapan government before its current term is a futile and even puerile one.

Agree with new Wanita UMNO chief Noraini that Ermieyati who resigned from UMNO should resign as MP for Masjid Tanah to seek a new mandate, but the Constitution should be amended first to allow Ermieyati to re-contest in such a by-election

The new Wanita UMNO chief Noraini Ahmad has challenged MPs who quit UMNO to relinquish their positions as elected representatives and trigger by-elections.

So far, three UMNO MPs have announced their resignation from UMNO to become independent MPs, namely Masjid Tanah MP Mas Ermieyati Samsudin, Bukit Gantang MP Syed Abu Hassin Hafiz Syed Abdul Fasal and Bagan Serai MP Noor Azmi Ghazali.

Noraini said:

“The decision by the three MPs, particularly Mas Ermieyati, to become independent MPs, is clearly a betrayal of the people’s trust who had elected them as Umno and BN representatives.

“Wanita Umno would like to remind Mas Ermieyati and other BN representatives that their position as MPs is not due to themselves but a combination of hard work by the party machinery and the people’s trust in Umno and BN. Read the rest of this entry »

Let the opening of the 14th Parliament in July make history for democracy by amending the Constitution to lower the voting age to 18

In my first year in Parliament 47 years ago in 1971, (Parliament was suspended for 18 months after the 1969 General Elections because of the May 13 riots and the declaration of emergency), I made three proposals for electoral reforms, viz:

– Lowering the voting age to 18 years;
– Automatic registration of eligible voters; and
– Compulsory voting.

I therefore welcome almost half a century later the proposal by the Prime Minister, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad that the Pakatan Harapan government lower the voting age from 21 to 18.

In fact, since my suggestion for the lowering of the voting age from 21 to 18 in 1971, the majority of the countries in the world have adopted this electoral reform but Malaysia seemed to be frozen in time as far as democratic and electoral reforms are concerned. Read the rest of this entry »

Fresh Perlis state assembly election is one option to resolve the Perlis constitutional crisis

Fresh Perlis state assembly election is one option to resolve the two-week-long Perlis constitutional crisis which cropped up after the May 9 general election.

Barisan Nasional won 10 out of 15 state assembly seats in Perlis constituting two-thirds assembly majority, but a fresh Perlis state general election is likely to see a change of government in the state, so as to fall in step with the change of Malaysian Government in Putrajaya from UMNO/BN to the Pakatan Harapan coalition.

In the swearing-in ceremony yesterday, Azlan Man, the State Assemblyman for Bintong, took the oath of office before the Raja of Perlis as the Mentri Besar, but the ceremony was boycotted by the other nine UMNO/BN State Assemblymen.

Hours after the swearing-in, Azlan was sacked from UMNO, making his position as Perlis Mentri Besar quite untenable.

The constitutional crisis in Perlis has caught the majority of Malaysians by surprise, as they had been more attuned to and focussed on the great changes unleashed by the political earthquake of May 9, 2018 at the federal level. Read the rest of this entry »

The 33.9% of the popular vote for UMNO/BN and 16.6% of popular vote for PAS in the 14GE did not realise that their vote would be used to support or prop up a kleptocratic Malaysia

At the DAP breaking-of-fast in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, I was glad to meet for the first time after the 14th General Election some of the DAP Malay Members of Parliament and State Assembly representatives, including Member of Parliament for Raub, Tengku Zulpuri Shah bin Raja Puji; Selangor State Assemblyman for Dusun Tua, Edry Faizal Eddy Yusof and State Assemblywoman for Bandar Utama Jamaliah Jamaludin; Pahang State Assemblywoman for Ketari Young Syefura Othman (Rara) on an occasion which was attended by DAP Secretary-General and Minister for Finance, Lim Guan Eng, and the other DAP leaders like the DAP National Chairman and MP for Cheras, Tan Kok Wai, DAP Deputy Secretary-General and MP for Seputeh Teresa Kok, National Publicity Secretary and MP for Damansara Tony Pua, DAP National Political Education Bureau Chairman Liew Chin Tong, MP for Segambut Hannah Yeoh, MP for Kota Kinabalu Chan Foong Hin, MP for Ipoh Timor Ong Kah Woh, MP for Taiping Teh Kok Lim and many others.

I have yet to meet after the historic May 9 poltical earthquake the other DAP Malay State Exco/Assembly representatives, like Johore State Exco Sheikh Umar Bagharib Ali (Paloh), Malacca State Exco Norhizam Hassan Baktee (Pengkalan Batu); Penang State Exco Zairil Khir Johari (Tanjong Bunga) and State Assemblywoman for Seri Delima Syerleena Abdul Rashid and Perak State Exco Dr. Abdul Aziz Bari (Tebing Tinggi).

But there is no doubt that the 14th General Election marked a major stride in the DAP’s struggle to fulfill the Malaysian Dream of all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion, region or politics, where Malaysia can purged themselves of the infamy and ignominy of being regarded worldwide as a global kleptocracy; and become a “beacon of light for a disturbed and distracted world” by being a showcase of how a nation of diverse races, religions, languages and cultures can succeed as an united, harmonious, democratic, progressive and prosperous Malaysia.

In the 14th General Election, the DAP fielded the most representative and inclusive slate of candidates for the parliamentary and state assembly candidates in party history – a total of 148 candidates comprising Chinese 108, Indian 23, Malay 10, KDM 3, Iban 3, Orang Asli 1.
