Ismai Sabri should not trifle with his own 2023 Budget by dissolving Parliament before the Budget was debated and passed by Parliament

(Versi BM)

One of the possible scenarios making its rounds in the country is that the 2023 Budget will be presented to Parliament on Friday, October 7 and Parliament will be dissolved on Monday, 10th October 2022.

If this happens, the 2023 Budget when presented to Parliament on Oct. 7 will be the non-budget of the year. Ismail will also be following in the footsteps of one of the worst parliamentary examples of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad as Prime Minister in 1999. Read the rest of this entry »

UMNO leaders are getting very desperate and blatant – they attack the judiciary for Najib going to jail instead of condemning corruption and they want early general election even to “wade through floods” to tell the world that 1MDB scandal is not a corruption scandal

(Versi BM)

UMNO leaders are getting very desperate and blatant – they attack the judiciary for the former Prime Minister Najib Razak going to jail instead of condemning corruption and they want early general election even to “wade through floods” to tell the world that 1MDB scandal is not a corruption scandal.

The UMNO President Zahid Hamidi made “twists and turns” trying to explain his speech at the launch of the BN machinery in Kuala Lumpur last Saturday on UMNO’s preparedness to “wade through floods” in the 15GE. Read the rest of this entry »

Call on Zahid to withdraw his statement that UMNO leaders are prepared to “wade through floods” if 15GE held during monsoon and floods disasters to prove that UMNO is still a responsible and people-oriented party

(Versi BM)

I call on the UMNO President, Zahid Hamidi, to withdraw his statement that UMNO leaders are prepared to “wide through floods” if the 15th General Election is held during monsoon and floods disasters to prove that UMNO is still responsible and people-oriented party.

The first four UMNO Presidents, Onn Jafaar, Tunku Abdul Raman. Razak Hussein and Hussein Onn would never have said such a thing and regard the loss of 54 lives and RM6.5 billion losses to property as happened last year because of monsoon and floods catastrophe as an irrelevant trifle which should be disregarded, and shows how different is UMNO today under Zahid Hamidi from the UMNO in its founding years.

Just as Hasni failed as a mind-reader when he failed to become Johore Mentri Besar after the Johore state general election, he would fail as a mind-reader a second time

(Versi BM)

Just as Hasni Mohammad failed as a mind-reader when he failed to become Johore Mentri Besar after the Johore state general election early this year, he would fail as a mind-reader a second time when he said I was preparing to contest in the Bakri parliamentary seat in the 15th General Election.

I do not know where Hasni got his information, but he is proving to be an atrocious political leader and strategist, purveying fake and false information. Read the rest of this entry »

Will Ismail Sabri be the second “backdoor” Prime Minister whose advice to the Yang di Pertuan Agong is rejected by the King?

(Versi BM)

Will Ismail Sabri be the second “backdoor” Prime Minister whose advice to the Yang di Pertuan Agong to dissolve Parliament during the monsoon and floods season is rejected by the King?

The first “backdoor” Prime Minister to have suffered this humiliation was Muhyiddin Yassin when he tried in October 2020 to evade a vote of confidence in Parliament by suspending Parliament with a proclamation of emergency on the ground of the Covid-19 pandemic. Read the rest of this entry »

Will the Yang di Pertuan Agong for the first time in Malaysian history withhold consent to a request for the dissolution of Parliament?

(Versi BM)

Will the Yang di Pertuan Agong for the first time in Malaysian history withhold consent to a request for the dissolution of Parliament if the Prime Minister,Ismail Sabri, is so irresponsible as to request a dissolution of Parliament regardless of the heavy costs to property and lives in a monsoon and flood season?

This possibility must now be seriously considered as the UMNO President, Zahid Hamidi has stated that UMNO leaders are prepared to wade through flood waters if the 15th General Election is held during monsoon and flood season. Read the rest of this entry »

Holding of 15GE when there is monsoon and massive flood disasters will be valid and proper reason for the Yang di Pertuan Agong to refuse dissolution of Parliament unless there is a vote of no-confidence motion in Parliament

(Versi BM)

UMNO President Zahid Hamidi is very insistent that the 15th General Election be held this year, even UMNO leaders have to wade through flood waters – but Zahid did not say what UMNO leaders are going to do if flood waters are too high for them to wade through.

Zahid’s desperation to have 15th General Election is so blatant that he is oblivious of the massive damage and lives lost caused by the monsoon and floods. Read the rest of this entry »

One swallow does not make a summer. Can there be more swallows?

For the first time, the UMNO President Zahid Hamidi’s desperate hurry for the dissolution of Parliament for the holding of immediate 15th General Election seem to be close at hand and the possibilityy of Parliament being dissolved after Oct. 7 after the 2023 Budget had been presented to the Dewan Rakyat cannot be ruled out.

The example of Parliament being dissolved after the Budget was presented but before it was passed by both Houses of Parliament and given the Royal Assent had happened once before in 1999, but I had said that the Prime Minister Ismail Sabri should not following this wrong and bad example which tantamount to the Prime Minister misusing his powers.

Can Malaysia avoid the fate of a failed state like Sri Lanka?

(Versi BM)

The two books launched today have sombre titles, “Malaysia Towads GE15 and Beyond” and “Dark Forces Changing Malaysia” , but they contained important question marks as the final decision has not been taken and as last page of the book on “Dark Forces” put it: GE 15 will decide the future of the nation – a Malay-Malaysia or a Malaysian-Malaysia.

The jailing of former Prime Minister, Najib Razak and the corruption conviction of his wife, Rosmah Mansor, and the contribution of the recent irrational, extremist and bigoted utterances of Hadi Awang, may bring about a sea-change in Malaysian politics.

Three scenarios for the 15th General Election

(Versi BM)

One of the chief talking points in Malaysia today is when the next 15th General Election will be held – from as soon as in a month’s time to some time next year.

If Prime Minister Ismail Sabri dissolves Parliament after the Finance Minister has tabled the 2023 Budget in Parliament on Oct. 7, 2023, he would be following the sole example of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in dissolving Parliament in the midst of the parliamentary debate on the 2000 Budget on Nov. 10, 1999 for the 10th General Election on 29th November 1999.

Pakatan Harapan parties must be ready and prepared as the 15GE will be a “social media war”

(Versi BM)

The triumph of social media disinformation and internet lies in the May 9 Philippines Presidential election, resulting in the landslide victory of Ferdinand Marcos Jr, the son and namesake of the late Philippines dictator and kleptocrat, must be a lesson for Malaysia.

With more than 31 million votes for Marcos Jr. while the opposition leader and Vice President Leni Robredo garnering less than half of the front-runners’ votes, Filipinos are bracing for six years of the “dark side of history”.

Does Malaysia want to be the first nation in the world to have a kleptocrat to return to power as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia?

(Versi BM)

The biggest joke in the 14-day Johore general election is the statement by the Johor Barisan Nasional (BN) chief Hasni Mohammad that Singapore could be more developed if it was led by UMNO.

For the last 27 years from 1995 to 2021, Singapore ranked among the top 10 countries in the world in the annual Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) while Malaysia fell from the rank of 23rd position in 1995 to 62nd position in 2021. Malaysia is expecting to drop further in the TI CPI 2022.

If UMNO was in Singapore, there was no way for the island republic to be among the top 10 countries in the world in the last 27 years for integrity, transparency and accountability. Read the rest of this entry »

It will be a national catastrophe of the first magnitude if Malaysia is the first country in the world where a convicted kleptocrat can return to power as head of government, whether as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia

It will be a national catastrophe of the first magnitude if Malaysia is the first country in the world where a convicted kleptocrat can return to power as head of government, whether as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

I have said that something is very wrong with the moral compass of Johore voters if they do not regard Najib Razak’s “Apa Malunya BOSSku” campaign as merely a circus but support it and endorse Najib Razak’s return, though a convicted kleptocrat, as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

We saw Azrol Rahani in action when he spoke just now – an angry Malaysian at the many injustices and wrongs in Malaysia, whether about FELDA or the Malaysian society as a whole.

We need angry Malaysians of all ages to express their anger at the many injustices and inequalities in our society after six decades of nationhood and to demand reforms so that we can fulfil our aspiration to be a world-class great nation instead of becoming a kleptocracy, kakistocracy and a failed state, as in that eventuality, all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region, will suffer.

World is watching Johor state general election on March 12 not because Johor is important but whether a convicted kleptocrat can begin to return as 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia

The world is following closely the Johor State general election on March 12, 2022 not because Johor is important but whether a convicted kleptocrat can begin to return as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Before May 9, 2018, Malaysians who went overseas were reluctant to admit they were Malaysians to avoid questions on the billion-ringgit 1MDB scandal, which was well-known and infamous worldwide although the subject was censored in Malaysia and Members of Parliament were not allowed to debate the subject in the Malaysian Parliament and on Malaysia becoming a kleptocracy.
