Is the Ismail Sabri government launching a cyberwarfare against its own people?

(Versi BM)

There has been thunderous silence for the last 24 hours from the Ismail Sabri government to the serious allegation by the tech giant Meta in its Quarterly Adversarial Threat Report which claimed that close to 1,000 Facebook and Instagram accounts as well as Facebook groups and pages have been removed for violating the platforms’ policy against coordinated inauthentic behaviour.

Meta said: “Such behaviour can be defined as the coordinated use of fake accounts to manipulate public debate for a strategic goal.” Read the rest of this entry »

(Versi BM)

I have given notice to ask the Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri, a Ministerial question in Parliament tomorrow whether the position on the Oktoberfest as reflected in Idris Ahmad’s reply in Parliament last month was the Ismail Sabri government’s official position, and if so, when the Cabinet took the decision.

The question for Ismail Sabri’s answer during Ministerial question time is:

Time to debunk the sea of lies, fake news and false information which had been polluting the political arena in the last few years

(Versi BM)

The time has come to debunk the sea of lies, fake news and false allegations which had been polluting the political arena in the last few years.

The Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri tried to justify the Sheraton Move conspiracy at the Selangor Barisan Nasional convention on Sunday when he justified the Sheraton Move which unconstitutionally and undemocratically toppled the elected Pakatan Harapan government after 22 months on the grounds of DAP dominance in the Pakatan Harapan government.

(Versi BM)

The Yang di Pertuan Agong is taking the lead in the war against corruption.

He said yesterday that all religions denounced corruption, as it is a cancer that can ruin civilisations.

UMNO wants the 15th General Election to be held in November but will Ismail Sabri be a copycat of Mahathir?

(Versi BM)

UMNO Deputy President, Mohamad Hasan wants the 15th General Election to be held in November – after the 2023 Budget is presented in Parliament on Friday, October 28, 2022 but without a full parliamentary debate or passage of the 2023 Budget by both Houses of Parliament and the giving of the Royal Assent.

This would be most irresponsible.

Ismail Sabri should countermand the directive of the Chief Secretary to the government to the PSD to punish civil servants for using English

(Versi BM)

The Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri should explain why he is promoting British luxury brand like the RM5,500 Burberry shirt while punishing civil servants for using
English.

I agree with G25, a group of influential Malays, and the former Minister for International Trade and Industry (Miti), Rafidah Aziz who criticised the Chief Secretary to the government, Mohd Zuki Ali, for his call to the Public Services Department to consider corrective and punitive measures to enforce the use of Bahasa Malaysia in the civil service and other government-related agencies including GLCs (government-linked companies).

Ismail Sabri cannot decide whether Zuraida should go as a Minister although he has no problem with wearing a RM5,500-shirt when meeting Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in Tokyo

(Versi BM)

The Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob cannot decide whether Zuraida Kamaruddin should go as Minister for Plantation Industries and Commodities although he has no problem with wearing a RM5,500-shirt when meeting the Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in Tokyo.

Zuraida announced her resignation from Bersatu for Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) from Turkey two days ago, and Bersatu President Muhyddin Yassin immediately said that he will submit the name of a candidate for the plantation industries and commodities minister position to Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

Is there no response whatsoever from Prime Minister Ismail Sabri to the devastating TI CPI 2021 where Malaysia dropped five points in score and 11 points in rank in two years – the worst two years in TI CPI in the last 27 years since 1995

(Versi BM)

Is there no response whatsoever from Prime Minister Ismail Sabri to the devastating Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2021 where Malaysia dropped five points in score and 11 points in rank in two years – the worst two years in TI CPI in the last 27 years since 1995?

It is two weeks since the release of the devastating TI CPI 2021 for Malaysia but Ismail has not uttered a single word.

Is he not surprised and shocked by the TI CPI 2021?

I commend the Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri for ensuring that the problem of national shuttlers Lee Zii Jia and Goh Jin Wei were speedily resolved with the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) lifting of the two-year sanction on them from international tournaments with immediate effect.

The Youth and Sports Minister Ahmad Faizal Azumu should also be recognised for his intervention. Read the rest of this entry »

When can Prime Minister Ismail Sabri catch up with Malaysians who are now worried about the swirling scandal involving the MACC Chief Commissioner Azam Baki while he is still only seemingly concerned about the floods disasters last month

(Versi BM)

When can the Prime Minister Ismail Sabri catch up with Malaysians who are now worried about the swirling scandal involving the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner Azam Baki while he is still only seemingly concerned about the floods disasters last month.

The one-day Special Parliament on the floods disasters yesterday did not prove that Ismail is really concerned about the floods disasters, because he did not return to Parliament in the winding up of the Special Parliament yesterday. Read the rest of this entry »

Ismail Sabri is the most slow-witted Prime Minister and surrounded by the worst advisers in the nation’s history but is he seriously suggesting that Azam is presently the best example of integrity and accountability in the public service?

(Versi BM)

After I sat through the Prime Minister Ismail Sabri’s presentation of the recent floods disasters in the Special Session of Parliament this morning, I was seized by two thoughts:

Firstly, complete absence of reference to “climate change” as an important factor in the recent “once-in-a-century” floods disasters, which was one of the two factors which caused them – the other being man-made conditions like corruption, abuses of power and sheer incompetence pre-and-post the floods disasters.

Secondly, we have the ninth Prime Minister who is always several steps behind events, when he should be more prescient, more proactive and on top of events than reactive to or trodden by events.

Azam-gate may lead to 15th General Election to be held after the Chinese New Year – and not just Johore state general election

There is much speculation as to whether Johore state general election will be held after the Chinese New Year.

The possibility of a Johore state general election being held after the Chinese New Year cannot be ruled out as it is an open secret that after the Malacca and Sarawak state general elections, UMNO leaders are pressing for the 15th General Election to be held as early as possible and a Johore state general election will be a form of pressure by the UMNO leaders on Prime Minister Ismail Sabri to dissolve Parliament as soon as possible to hold the 15th General Election.

Prime Minister Ismail Sabri should not allow a parliamentary paralysis and schedule Thursday 27th January for Special Parliament to discuss Azam-gate

(Versi BM)

The Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri should not allow a parliamentary paralysis and schedule Thursday 27th January for a Special Parliament to discuss Azam-gate as Parliament cannot allow anyone, even if he is the MACC Chief Commissioner, to hold it to ransom from deciding important national questions.

Many issues on Azam-gate happened today.

First, the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) Chairman Wong Kah Woh rightly challenged the position of the Speaker, Azahar Azizan Harun that the Parliamentary Special Select Committee on Agencies under the Prime Minister’s Department cannot be open to the public and the media under the Dewan Rakyat Standing Orders except on one point. Then the MP for Teluk Intan, Nga Kor Ming, submitted an emergency motion to Parliament to debate Azam-gate. Read the rest of this entry »

Last chance for Ismail Sabri to salvage his premiership – get his Cabinet on Wednesday to decide to terminate Azam’s appointment as MACC Chief Commissioner if Azam is not prepared to appear before the PSSC on Agencies in the Prime Minister’s Department to clear his conflict-of-interest allegations

Ismail Sabri has a last chance to salvage his premiership from becoming a kakistocracy.

On Wednesday, he must get his Cabinet to decide to terminate the appointment of Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner, Azam Baki, if Azam is not prepared to appear before the Parliamentary Special Select Committee (PSCC) on Agencies in the Prime Minister’s Department to clear his conflict-of-interest allegations.

Ismail has missed the train altogether – is he suggesting that two-and-a-half months is not enough time for him say something on Azam-gate, especially as we have the most ludicrous situation of Azam investigating Azam if MACC had been investigating for the last two months!

The Prime Minister Ismail Sabri has “missed the train” altogether when he asked for space for the authorities to thoroughly investigate the conflict-of-interest allegations against the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner, Azam Baki.

Is he suggesting that two-and-a-half months is not enough time for him as Prime Minister directly responsible for MACC to say something on Azam-gate, especially we have the most ludicrous situation of Azam investigating Azam if there had been such MACC investigation in the past two months.

Prime Minister Ismail Sabri’s silence on Azam-gate is most ominous when he is at the same time destroying the doctrine of separation of powers among the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary

Malaysia is facing its worst crisis of confidence over its anti-corruption agency, but the person who should be most concerned, the Prime Minister under whom the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) directly comes under, is blissfully indifferent and unconcerned.

Its coming to two weeks since academician Edmund Terence Gomez resigned as a member of MACC Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel in protest against MACC’s failure to act on the conflict-of-interest allegations against the MACC Chief Commissioner Azam Baki but the Prime Minister has not said a single word of Azam-gate, the latest scandal of scandal-ridden Malaysia.

Ismail Sabri’s clarification on no imminent Cabinet reshuffle welcome but why he is still shy on commenting on the conflict-of-interest allegation against the MACC Chief Commissioner?

(Versi BM)

Prime Minister Ismail Sabri’s clarification yesterday that there is no imminent Cabinet reshuffle is most welcome, but it highlights his failure or inability to comment on the conflict-of-interest allegation of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commissioner Chief Commissioner Azam Baki for more than two months.

The issue of Azam Baki has been swirling in the public limelight for more than a week since the resignation of Edmund Terence Gomes from MACC’s Consultation and Corruption Prevention Panel and many personalities have called on Ismail Sabri to break his silence as the allegation of Azam Baki’s conflict-of-interest which was made more than two months ago.

Would MACC approve the appointment of a convicted corruption criminal as a Cabinet Minister?

(Versi BM)

A website reported on Sunday that there was going to be a Cabinet reshuffle and four Ministers will be replaced – the Finance Minister, Tengku Zafrul Aziz; the Minister of Youth and Sports, Ahmad Faizal Azumu; the Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department, Abdul Latiff Ahmad, the Minister for Women, Family and Community Development Rina Harun would be replaced by, among others, Najib Razak as Economic Adviser in the Prime Minister’s Department, Ahmad Maslan as Finance Minister and Shahril Hamdan as Minister for Youth and Sports.

I do not know how true is the report but appointing Najib Razak to any Ministerial position or post would be crossing the “red line” and will jeopardise the confidence-supply-reform (CSR) Memorandum of Understanding (Mo0) signed by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri and the four Pakatan Harapan leaders on Sept. 13, 2021.

If Azam is not prepared to appear before the Parliamentary SSC on Agencies in the PM’s Department, Ismail Sabri should terminate Azam’s appointment as MACC Chief Commissioner and take immediate steps to transfer the MACC from the PM’s Department to Parliament

If Azam Baki is not prepared to appear before the Parliamentary Special Select Committee on the Agencies in the Prime Minister’s Department on the serious allegations which had been made against him two months ago, the Prime Minister Ismail Sabri should terminate Azam’s appointment as Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Chief Commissioner and take immediate steps to transfer the MACC from the PM’s Department to Parliament.

Ismail Sabri should present this proposal for Cabinet approval at the Cabinet meeting tomorrow – or will there be no Cabinet meeting tomorrow? Read the rest of this entry »
