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.

Penang must be in the national forefront to defend the Federal Court and nine judges who unanimously agreed to Najib’s conviction for corruption and sentence of 12 years’ jail and RM210 million fine

(Versi BM)

The Chief Justice of Malaysia, Tun Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat has asked Malaysians, particularly politicians, to read the judgements of cases before criticising judges over the decisions.

After attending the second National Litigation Conference 2022 in Kuala Lumpur yesterday, she noted criticism of the Federal Court’s decision last month to uphold the conviction of Najib Razak. Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Ismail Sabri should not follow the wrong and bad example of 1999 dissolution of Parliament after the 2000 Budget was presented but before it was passed by Parliament

(Versi BM)

One regular conversation topic is when the next 15th General Election will be held.

There is a theory that Parliament will be dissolved in a month’s time after the 2023 Budget is presented to Parliament on Friday, October 7, 2022 but before the Budget is passed by Parliament. Read the rest of this entry »

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

(Versi BM)

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.

Something very wrong with moral compass of Johor voters if they do not regard Najib’s “Apa Malunya BOSSku” campaign as merely a circus but support it and endorse Najib’s return, though a convicted kleptocrat, as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia

(Versi BM)

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

(Versi BM)

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.

Kamal Hassan’s new book “Corruption and Hypocrisy in Malay Muslim politics – the Urgency of Moral-Ethical Transformation” is proof that not all Malays support Najib Razak’s “Apa Malunya BOSSku” campaign

(Versi BM)

The third Rector of the International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM), Prof. Emeritus M. Kamal Hassan’s new book, “Corruption and Hypocrisy in Malay-Muslim Politics – the Urgency of Moral-Ethical Transformation” is proof that not all Malays support Najib Razak’s “Apa Malunya BOSSku” campaign.

Kamal said he is “disgusted, appalled and sickened” by the corruption and hypocrisy of Malay Muslim politics in Malaysia.

But former Prime Minister Najib is campaigning like a “conquering hero” in the Johore state general election. Read the rest of this entry »

Call on Johore voters to show that they have more stamina and perseverance to fight kleptocracy than Najib in his defence of kleptocracy and 1MDB scandal

(Versi BM)

I am worried about the voter turn-out in the Johore state general election on March 12, 2022 and would call on the voters of Johore not to fall into Najib Razak’s trap of not voting and let UMNO to win a landslide victory in Johore which will be a stepping-stone for Najib to return as 10th or 11th Malaysian Prime Minister in the 15th national General Election.

Najib is campaigning as the real leader of UMNO and Barisan Nasional and to return as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia by using the Johore state general election as a testing ground for his popularity.

Call on people of Johor to ensure a high voter turnout on March 12 to ensure DAP can retain all 14 State Assembly seats and Pakatan Harapan’s “big tent” can win some 30 seats to form the next Johore state government to continue institutional reforms started in the 14th general election

(Versi BM)

DAP started in the Johor state general election from a very low point. Many do not expect the DAP to retain half the 14 seats won in the previous general election and there were even those who expect the DAP to be wiped out completely in Johor on March 12, especially under the Covid-19 pandemic which had been rampaging for more than two years and the very restrictive SoPs.

The public morale of the DAP and Pakatan Harapan was low because for more than two years, the Malaysian public had been fed with the false information, fake news and negative propaganda that the 22-month Pakatan Harapan government was a failure and disaster, when in fact, it was the beginning of institutional reforms started in the 14th General Election in 2018 to make Malaysia a world-class great nation.

Tony Pua has gone too far in attacking to the Foon Yew school board of governors but he was right in condemning Najib for using Foon Yew to exculpate his kleptocracy

The DAP MP Damansara Tony Pua has gone too far in attacking the Foon Yew school board of governors but he was right in condemning Najib Razak in using Foon Yew to exculpate his kleptocracy.

For the last few days, I have been saying that UMNO has forced the holding of the Johor state general election on March 12, 2022 not to defend the lives and livelihoods of the people to enable life and the economy to re-open after more than two years of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic, but to force the early holding of the 15th General Election to enable Najib Razak to return as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Has Najib no compunction whatsoever for the billion-ringgit 1MDB scandal and for turning Malaysia into a kleptocracy?

UMNO has forced the holding of the Johor state general election on March 12, 2022 not to defend the lives and livelihoods of the people to enable life and the economy to re-open after more than two years of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic, but to later force the early holding of the 15th General Election to enable Najib Razak to return as the 10th or 11th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

The ulterior motive of the UMNO masters is clear. Although none of the UMNO “court cluster” is a candidate in the Johor state general election, it is obvious that the UMNO “court cluster” are calling the shots as they want early 15th General Election so that they can escape punishment and go to jail for their corruption and their abuses of power when they were in government.

Johore and Malaysia should not elevate “shamelessness” as a moral standard for political leaders who feel no shame or guilt for making Malaysia world-infamous as a kleptocracy

(Versi BM)

There are 239 candidates in the Johor state general election on March 12, 2022 vying for the 56 State Assembly seats, most of whom have no chance of winning as their role is just to split votes to enable the UMNO candidates to win.

This is a scenario which pleases UMNO, which had forced the holding of the Johor state general election when the primary focus should be on how to defend the lives and livelihoods of the people to enable life and the economy to re-open after more than two years of the deadly Covid-19 pandemic.
