Yesterday evening, I received email notice from Parliament about reconvening of Parliament on July 26.

The five-day meeting of Parliament from July 26 is not a proper Parliamentary meeting but just a special briefing session with a series of Ministerial statements on the Covid-19 pandemic.

#kerajaangagal175 – Is there any Minister who dare to deny that Malaysia is likely to pass the million mark for cumulative total of Covid-19 cases by the end of this month and what is the government doing about a new strategy to prepare Malaysians to live with the coronavirus?

In the first week of May, the Indonesian Health Ministry advised Indonesians to stay home and tighten their 3M health protocols against Covid-19 infection (masks, hand washing and maintaining social distancing) ahead of the Hari Raya Aidilfitri holidays warning them to learn from India and Malaysia: “Learn from India and Malaysia for surely we don’t want Indonesia to face the same problem”.

Two months later, Indonesia had overtaken Malaysia and India as a worst-performing nation in the Covid-19 pandemic. Read the rest of this entry »

#kerajaangagal173 – Cabinet today should follow TMJ’s advice of no politicking and focus on health and economic crisis by inviting all leaders of political parties to a Roundtable Conference on the Covid-19 pandemic

The Cabinet today should follow the advice of the Johore Crown Prince,
Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim of no politicking and focus on health and economic crisis by inviting all leaders of political parties to a Roundtable Conference on the
Covid-19 pandemic.

In breaking into the five-figure daily Covid-19 caseload yesterday , Malaysia became the top 13th country in the world in terms of daily new Covid-19 cases – a measure of the enormity of the failure of the government’s emergency measures to fight the Covid-19 pandemic, when two months before the emergency on January 11, 2021, Malaysia was ranked No. 85 in cumulative total of Covid-19 cases.

#kerajaangagal167 – Will India’s oxygen crisis come to Malaysia?

This is the hallmark of an incompetent, inefficient and kakistocratic administration.

On Monday on 5th July, 2021, the Prime Minister’s Office issued a statement saying that the government has agreed to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong that a special meeting of the Third Session of the 14th Parliament would be held for five days from 26th July to 2nd August for the Dewan Rakyat and three days from 3rd to 5th August 2021 for the Senate.

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Malaysia has overtaken Japan two weeks before the opening of the Tokyo Olympics to be ranked No. 33 among nations in the world with the most cumulative total of Covid-19 cases.

By the present rate of Covid-19 infection, by the middle of the month, Malaysia will go another step down the slippery slope of a worst-performing nation in the Covid-19 pandemic and overtake Israel to be ranked No. 32.

#kerajaangagal162 – Malaysia needs a “War against Covid-19 Pandemic” coalition government whose sole task is to win the war against Covid -19

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Yesterday’s Covid-19 statistics is proof that despite Malaysia fighting a losing war against the Covid-19 pandemic – as evident from the triple failures of the emergency, the twice-extended “total lockdowns” and the National Recovery Plan – there are no signs that we are turning the tides of defeat in the war against the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the first seven days of July, Malaysia registered a rolling daily average of 6,830 Covid-19 new cases, when we should be reaching the threshold of less than 4,000 cases on June 28, and the question in many minds is when the “total lockdown” will be lifted as it has proved to be a total failure.

#kerajaangagal157 – Malaysia is doomed if Annuar Musa wields real influence in the Muhyiddin Cabinet

It is really tragic that Cabinet Ministers continue to make an ass of themselves.

#kerajaangagal138 – Judges and not the Attorney-General decide on what is the law in Malaysia, and the last two Attorney-Generals have shown that one AG can disagree with another AG

Firstly, it must noted that under the Malaysian Constitution, the Attorney-General is the principal legal adviser of the government and not a judge who lays down the law of the land. This applies even when the Attorney-General was a former Federal Court judge.

As illustrated by the two previous Attorney-Generals under different administrations, one Attorney-General can disagree with another Attorney-General and there is nothing sacrosanct or final about the views of the Attorney-General on what is the law in the land. Read the rest of this entry »

#kerajaangagal135 – Is Muhyiddin’s “Parliamentitis” – his fear and obsession with Parliament – so overwhelming and overpowering that he is prepared to risk the displeasure of Yang di Pertuan Agong, the Rulers and the Malaysian people not to convene Parliament before August 1, 2021?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Dewan Rakay Deputy Speaker, Mohd Rashid Hasnon, has said that Parliament has adequate facilities to implement a hybrid Dewan Rakyat sitting at any time necessary.

Why then is the Prime Minister, Muhyiddin Yassin suggesting involving the opposition in a committee to study the reconvening of Parliament and also whether it should be done in a hybrid mode – a combination of physical and virtual presence?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Time is closing in for the Muhyiddin government to call for an emergency Cabinet meeting to comply with the Dewan Rakyat Standing Orders with the requisite 28 days’ notice and to convene Parliament on July 19, 2021 and avoid any constitutional crisis in the country.

The Dewan Rakyat Standing Orders provide that the Prime Minister will decide, at least 28 days in advance, when the Dewan Rakyat should meet, which means that tomorrow Sunday 20th June 2021 is the deadline for the Prime Minister to convene Parliament on July 19 and comply with the Dewan Rakyat Standing Orders on the 28 days’ requisite notice.

#kerajaangagal115 – Will Mahiaddin have to take a new oath of office before the Yang di Pertuan Agong to be Prime Minister of Malaysia and is he properly sworn in as Member of Parliament for Pagoh and Johore State Assemblyman for Gambir?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

The Prime Minister’s chief private secretary Marzuki Mohamad’s memorandum to all civil servants to utilise the Prime Minister’s legal name, Mahiaddin Md Yasin for all government documents raises the question whether Muhyiddin also known as Mahiaddin needs to take a new oath of office before the Yang di Pertuan Agong to be Prime Minister of Malaysia.

It also raises the questions whether Muhyiddin also known as Mahiaddin had been properly sworn in as Member of Parliament for Pagoh and Johore State Assemblyman for Gambir. Read the rest of this entry »

The Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin’s much-hyped live national telecast yesterday on the National Recovery Plan is a great disappointment and let-down as it offers not light at the end of the tunnel, only fog and more fog.

#kerajaangagal109 – Is the Covid-19 exit plan Muhyiddin’s distraction ploy from the SIEC issue?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Why should the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin be now talking about a National Recovery Plan in preparation for the country to emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic?

Is it Muhyiddin’s distraction ploy from the Special Independent Emergency Committee (SIEC) issue triggered by his de facto Law Minister, Takiyuddin Hassan as to whether SIEC would be the only authoritative body to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong whether to extend the emergency on August 1, 2021?

#kerajaangagal108 – Takiyuddin’s backtrack is not good enough when Muhyiddin continues to keep his silence on whether the SIEC will be the only authoritative body, and not the Cabinet or designated Minister, to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether to extend the emergency on August 1

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

The de facto Law Minister, Takiyuddin Hassan, has backtracked from his stand that it is the Cabinet’s responsibility to advise the Yang di-Pertuan Agong whether or not the emergency should be extended, but this is not good enough so long as the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddihn Yassin keeps his silence on whether the Special Independent Emergency Committee (SIEC) will be the only authoritative body, and not the Cabinet or designated Minister, to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether to extend the emergency on August 1, 2021.

I would advise the entire 19-member Special Independent Committee headed by Arifin Zakaria to ask for a meeting with the Prime Minister and secure an assurance from him that it is the SIEC and not the Cabinet or designated Minister who will advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether to extend the emergency on August 1 and that that this issue would not be the crown of all Covid-19 SOP flip-flops, U-turns and double-standards by the Perikatan Nasional government.

#kerajaangagal107 – The entire 19-member Special Independent Committee headed by Arifin Zakaria should meet the Prime Minister and ask for an assurance that it is the Special Independent Committee and not the Cabinet or designated Minister who will advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether to extend the emergency on August 1, 2021 or it might as well be disbanded

In the era of 24/7, the 24-hour silence of the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin on a vital constitutional issue like the extension of the emergency is a most extraordinary thing.

Is it because the Prime Minister is out of his depth on the constitutional issue and uncertain of the import of what he said in his national telecast on January 12, 2021 about the Special Independent Committee to advise the Yang di Pertuan Agong on whether the emergency proclamation of January 11, 2021 is to be extended or ended, or whether it is because this is the crown of all SOP flips-flops, U-turns and double-standards by the Perikatan Nasional Government in the last 18 months since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic or is it because the Prime Minister could not get the Attorney-General to advise him on this vital constitutional issue on a Sunday?
