Why despite my mounting reservations about Ismail Sabri’s premiership in tackling the Covid-19 Pandemic and reset the country’s democratic directions, I still support the CSR MOU

Despite my mounting reservations about Ismail Sabri’s premiership in tackling the Covid-19 pandemic and reset the country’s democratic direction, Malaysians should give the ninth Prime Minister a chance to acquit himself and support the confidence-supply-reform (CSR) memorandum of understanding (MOU) signed by Ismail and Pakatan Harapan leaders on Monday.

The support for the CSR MOU is not for Ismail Sabri’s sake but for the sake of the country and the future. Read the rest of this entry »

Possibility of confidence-supply-reform agreement between the government and opposition suffered a grievous blow and is now “up in the air” as a result of the omission of the vote of confidence motion in the parliamentary agenda next week

(Versi BM)

The possibility of reaching a confidence-supply-reform agreement between the government and the opposition suffered a grievous blow and is now “up in the air” as a result of the omission of the vote of confidence motion in the parliamentary agenda next week.

If the Yang di Pertuan Agong had changed his mind and consented not to have a confidence motion in Parliament as claimed by the new Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department in charge of law and Parliament, Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar, then why was it not stated right from the very beginning instead of the most bizarre statement by the Attorney-General Idris Harun last Saturday arguing the most ridiculous point that a vote of confidence would undermine the Yang di Pertuan Agong’s powers to appoint a Prime Minster in accordance with the Malaysian Constitution?

Is Ismail Sabri going to disregard the decree of the Yang di Pertuan Agong in one of his first acts in Parliament on Sept. 14?

The Attorney-General Idris Harun should not stray into the political minefield but should keep strictly to his role as legal adviser of the government

His statements that a vote of confidence is not necessary as the Yang di Pertuan
Agong had already appointed Ismail Sabri as Prime Minister and that a vote of confidence would undermine the Yang di Pertuan Agong’s power are all politics and no law. Read the rest of this entry »

Call for a more liberal and open-minded administration which is more conscious of the constitutional principles of good governance, the rule of law and human rights

Malaysians need a government which is more liberal and open-minded and more conscious of the constitutional principles of good governance, the rule of law and human rights.

Congrats to Ismail Sabri on becoming the 9th Prime Minister of Malaysia

Congratulations to Ismail Sabri on becoming the ninth Prime Minister of Malaysia.
