Parliament next month should not only be the most important in the 22-month Pakatan Harapan government, but also in the nation’s history, by implementing the most number of PH promises of a New Malaysia in the 14GE

The announcement by the PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man that PAS will move a “vote of confidence” motion in the Dewan Rakyat to support Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s premiership until the 15th General Election found unusual support from MCA and precipitated the country into a week of frenzy awash with plots, conspiracy theories and fake news of Statutory Declaratins by 138 MPs to torpedo the Pakantan Harapan Government in Putrajaya.

The climax of this political chicanery and psy-war to torpedo the Pakatan Harapan government was the explosive infographic by the MCA-owned newspaper trumpeting that 138 Members of Parliament had purportedly signed Statutory Declaration “for PM to stay the full term”, and a breakdown which political party the 138 MPs came from.

It was the most recent example of the unholy alliance between PAS and MCA to propagate conflicting lies to create an unprecedented scenario in Malaysia – where every ethnic community or religion was made to fear that it faced an existential threat from the other ethnic group or religion and where the DAP was painted as a political party performing the impossible tasks of being the greatest existential threat to Malay rights, position and future as well as that of Islam on the one hand while being the greatest existential threat to the rights, position and future of the Chinese and non-Malays in the country on the other.

All these foam and fluff should have been exposed by the statement by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim last Thursday after his meeting with the Prime Minister and Mahathir’s statement in Langkawi the next day that Anwar had provided an accurate account of what transpired in their meeting.

A question which is also an indictment

There are those who think that it is naïve for me to pose the question: Will the Opposition play its role as an honest, constructive and loyal Opposition to the Constitution and Rukunegara instead of trying its utmost to polarise and divide Malaysians through the politics of race, religion, fake news and hate speech?

This is a question which is also an indictment.

I had not expected any answer from the Opposition and there was none. In the new Internet era of 24-hour news cycle, the two-day total Opposition silence to my question on Tuesday is very eloquent and conclusive proof that the Opposition will continue to be dishonest, destructive and disloyal to the Constitution and Rukunegara so that it could divide Malaysians through the politics of race, religion, fake news and hate speech.

I have always believed that in any democracy, the Opposition has an important role to play to provide the necessary check and balance to prevent abuse of power and other deviations, but it must be an honest, constructive and loyal Opposition – not to the government of the day, but to the country and the basic nation-building documents like the Constitution and the Rukunegara.

I have never believed that to be an effective Opposition, one must be dishonest, destructive and disloyal to the Constitution and Rukunegara which best describe the present Opposition. Read the rest of this entry »

Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2019 the best Chinese New Year present to Malaysia and should spark the start of virtuous circle of delivery of Pakatan Harapan general election promises and achievements in 2020

The Transparency International (TI) Corruption Perception Index (CPI) 2019 released midday today is the best Chinese New Year present to Malaysia and should spark the start of a virtuous circle of delivery of Pakatan Harapan general election promises and achievements in 2020.

It is the best antidote to the atmosphere of doom and gloom which has descended on Malaysia.

In 2017, Malaysia’s TI CPI ranked No. 62 (lowest for Malaysia in 25 year since 1995) with a score of 47 out of 100; while in the TI CPI 2018 released in January 2019, Malaysia was ranked No. 61 out of 180 countries with a score of 47.

In the TI CPI 2019 released today, Malaysia is ranked No. 51 with a score of 53, registering a single-year improvement six points for the TI CPI score and 10 placings in TI CPI ranking, which is the best performance for Malaysia in the past quarter of a century.

Let us move away from daily fixation and obsession with the transition of power

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has advised Pakatan Harapan leaders not to discuss the transition of power issue openly and to honour the consensus on the matter reached in January 2018.

Let us move away from the daily fixation and obsession with the transition of power and focus all our efforts on how to deliver our promises in the 2018 general election as 2020 is going to be a make-or-break year for Pakatan Harapan.

Undoubtedly, one of the most important Pakatan Harapan promises is the successful and amicable transition of power from the seventh Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to the eighth Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The details of the transition of power should be left to the Pakatan Harapan Presidential Council although there no need to for a special meeting on the matter.

(Media Statement by DAP MP for Iskandar Puteri in Gelang Patah on Wednesday, 22nd January 2020)

Advice to lawyer Haniff Khatri Abdulla to read the Buku Harapan before he opens his mouth about what Pakatan Harapan had promised in the 14th General Election

I would advise lawyer Haniff Khatri Abdulah to read Buku Harapan before he opens his mouth about what Pakatan Harapan had promised in the 14th General Election.

Promise 27 (page 61) on “Abolish oppressive laws” of Buku Harapan pledges that “The Pakatan Harapan Government will also abolish draconian provisions” in Security Offences (special measures) Act 2012 (SOSMA).

Haniff cannot be more wrong when he alleged that some DAP leaders, by the virtue of being part of the ruling government, was meddling in police affairs.

DAP leaders are adhering to Buku Harapan in pressing for the abolition of the draconian provisions in SOSMA, which includes the denial of bail when a person is charged under SOSMA and during the whole period the case is subject to appeal to the higher courts upon an application by the Public Prosecutor – which could take years.

Buku Harapan must be the compass to reset nation-building policies to return to the founding principles of Malaysian Constitution to ensure unity, justice, freedom, excellence and integrity in Malaysia

We want the Pakatan Harapan government to succeed to reset nation-building policies for Malaysia to return to the founding principles of the Malaysian Constitution to ensure unity, justice, freedom, excellence and integrity in Malaysia, where there is separation of powers, the rule of law, public integrity and respect for human rights..

For six decades, we have strayed from the fundamental principles of the Malaysian Constitution. The re-setting of nation-building principles to restore the original Constitution principles is an arduous process and will probably take a generation, but substantial efforts must be made in the five years before the next general election in 2023.

DAP will not be MCA2 or Pakatan Harapan become BN2, for the simple reason that DAP and Pakatan Harapan are committed to the agenda to reset nation building policies to build a New Malaysia – objectives which the MCA, UMNO, Barisan Nasional and Muafakat Nasional are opposed

On Friday, I attended a youth camp at Janda Baik and the topic I was asked to talk about was: “Is the idea of a Malaysian an empty dream?”

This was particularly pertinent, as only a week earlier, Pakatan Harapan was given a drubbing in the Tanjong Piai parliamentary by-election, where Pakatan Harapan not only lost the seat which it had clinched with a slim majority of 524 votes 18 months earlier in the 14th General Election, but lost it with a landslide majority of 15,086 votes.

If the Tanjong Piai by-election is a harbinger of the 15th General Election in 2023, then the Pakatan Harapan government would be a one-term government and would be voted out of Putrajaya in the next general election.

But do Malaysians want a return of the UMNO-BN government, which would come back under the guise of Muafakat Nasional with PAS, and the quandary of the country which resulted in the Pakatan Harapan loss in the Tanjong Piai by-election becoming the order of the day – the politics of race and religion taking to their extremity with both the Malays and non-Malays in fear that their rights, position and future are under unprecedented threat by other communities making the topic of the youth camp, “Is the idea of a Malaysian an empty dream?” a most prescient and relevant one!

The past week has revealed more about the mendacity and immorality of the previous kleptocratic regime, how the 1MDB audit report prepared for the Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee was tampered by the former Prime Minister with the deletion of important information about the 1MDB scandal, like the presence of Jho Low at a meeting of the 1MDB Board of Directors and the financial status of 1MDB or the revelation in the trial of the former Deputy Prime Minister for bribery, criminal breach of trust and money-laundering that not one cent of the RM31 million in a foundation to help the poor was used to help the poor.

Is this global kleptocracy the type of governance Malaysians want to revert to or would Malaysia become ungovernable and the country’s fate is to be a failed, rogue and kleptocratic state? Read the rest of this entry »

Parliament must play its role to achieve the Pakatan Harapan promise to reset nation-building policies in keeping with the Merdeka Proclamation that Malaysia “shall be forever a sovereign democratic and independent state founded upon the principles of liberty and justice and ever seeking the welfare and happiness of its people”

Parliament must play its role to achieve the Pakatan Harapan promise to reset nation-building policies in keeping with the Merdeka Proclamation that Malaysia “shall be forever a sovereign democratic and independent state founded upon the principles of liberty and justice and ever seeking the welfare and happiness of its people”.

Let me read excerpts from Buku Harapan:

“We promise hope for all citizens, regardless of race and religion. We will stop the rot in key national institutions and we will return the rule of law by ensuring the independence and integrity of important government agencies.

“We will cleanse Malaysia from corruption, malfeasance and kleptocracy, and at the same time drive a sustainable economic growth so that the benefits can be shared by all, not just by a few people in power.

“We offer leaders who are clean and committed to cleaning up this country from the rot, and leaders who are committed to helping people of all backgrounds.”

The Buku Harapan highlights the five pillar-promises, viz:

– Reduce the people’s burden;
– Institutional and political reforms;
– Spur sustainable and equitable economic growth;
– Return Sabah and Sarawak to the status accorded in Malaysia Agreement 1963; and
– Create a Malaysia that is inclusive, moderate and respected globally.

In the agenda on institutional and political reforms, the Buku Harapan stressed that “the check and balance mechanism created by our forefathers no longer function effectively” and pledged to restore confidence in the country’s institutions and redeem the dignity of the administration in a series of institutional and political reforms.

Another reason “M for Malaysia” a must-see film for every Malaysian – to reaffirm that the historic decision of 9.5.2018 must succeed although it would take a longer time-span to accomplish instead of being an ignominious failure

There is another reason why the film “M for Malaysia” should be a must-see film for every Malaysian – an occasion for Malaysians to reaffirm that the historic decision of 9.5.2018 must succeed although it would take a longer time-span to accomplish instead of being an ignominious failure.

The film “M for Malaysia” documents the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018, when Malaysians shocked the world and themselves with a miraculous transition of power, peaceful and democratic, overthrowing one of the longest ruling governments in the world to reset nation-building policies to build a New Malaysia to become a country which is a top world-class nation of unity, freedom, justice, excellence and integrity.

Malaysians were so focussed on accomplishing the seemingly impossible job of overcoming insuperable odds to change the government through the ballot box that they overlooked the fact that May 9, 2018 was not a bloody revolution where the heads of those who dissented can be chopped but a peaceful democratic transition where we must win over those who had earlier disagreed with a change of government – while restoring the fundamental rights of freedom of speech and expression which were quelled by repression by the previous government.

While the film celebrates the miraculous victory of Malaysians on May 9, 2018 , it is a salutary reminder that only a battle had been won but not a war.

Just as the May 9, 2018 victory was the result of decades of “blood, sweat and tears” of courageous, passionate and patriotic Malaysians, the mission to build a New Malaysia to reset nation-building policies to undo the injustices, abuses of power and corruption of the past six decades cannot be undone in one or two years, but will take more than one general election cycle to accomplish.

“M for Malaysia” a must-see film for every Malaysian as it’s a powerful antidote to the recent barrage of fake news and hate speech to create racial and religious conflagration on the baseless premise that the Malays have lost political power as the May 9, 2018 historic change was a Chinese conspiracy to grab power from the Malays

“M for Malaysia” is a must-see film for every Malaysian as it’s a powerful antidote to the recent barrage of fake news and hate speech to create racial and religious conflagration on the baseless premise that the Malays have lost political power as the May 9, 2018 historic change was a Chinese conspiracy to grab power from the Malays.

Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was the pedlar-in-chief of fake news and hate speech during the 14th General Election, utterly reckless of their divisive, provocative and polarizing character to tear asunder a fragile plural society comprising of diverse races, religions, languages and cultures!

Who will forget what Najib said on the eve of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 when he said that there were no Malays at Pakatan Harapan ceramahs and that the tens of thousands who gathered to hear Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad in the various parts in the country were DAP supporters “bussed in” by DAP, when the Special Branch and the various intelligence agencies of the government should know that in its 52-year history, DAP had never bused anyone to any DAP or Pakatan Harapan function!

Malaysians would be reminded from the film “M for Malaysia” that the crowds at the ceramahs for Mahathir and Pakatan Harapan in the 14th General Election campaign were very spontaneous and representative of the Malays, Chinese and Indians in Peninsular Malaysia, exposing the lies and falsehoods – escalated in the recent barrage of fake news and hate speech in the last few months – that the change of government on May 9, 2018 was Chinese grabbing Malay political power.

Endorsement of Mahathir’s call to Pakatan Harapan parties to stop infighting or risk Pakatan losing power

Sokongan terhadap seruan Mahathir supaya parti komponen Pakatan Harapan berhenti bergaduh sesama sendiri ataupun berisiko hilang sokongan

Saya menyokong seruan Perdana Menteri dan Pengerusi, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad yang menggesa parti komponen Pakatan Harapan untuk berhenti bergaduh sesama sendiri jika tidak mahu kehilangan sokongan dalam Pilihanraya Umum ke-15 kelak.

Kejayaan bersama empat parti politik Pakatan Harapan dalam menumpaskan kerajaan Barisan Nasional dan kekal teguh bersama sebagai satu pakatan sepanjang 14 bulan yang lepas adalah suatu keajaiban.

Kita cuma perlu lihat kembali ke tahun 2016, di mana Barisan Nasional telah berjaya memenangi Pilihanraya Negeri Sarawak pada bulan Mei dan kemudiannya menang besar dalam Pilihanraya Kecil Sungai Besar dan Kuala Kangsar pada bulan Jun — di mana masa hadapan politik negara kelihatan kelam dan peluang untuk menolak Dato’ Seri Najib Razak dan rejim Barisan Nasional daripada menjunamkan negara ke arah sebuah negara kleptokratik yang gagal kelihatan mustahil.

Namun begitu, Pakatan Harapan berjaya — memberikan satu amanah dan tanggungjawab yang lebih besar untuk semua pemimpin PH untuk menjayakan sebuah Malaysia yang baharu yang telah dijanjikan, dengan menggubal semula polisi negara bagi membentuk satu Malaysia yang bersatu-padu, cemerlang, berkebebasan, adil, dan berintegriti, sebuah negara yang terulung yang disegani di mata dunia.

Pendokong ideologi klepto-teokrasi yang mendoakan kegagalan Pakatan Harapan dan Malaysia Baharu mahu melihat perpecahan di dalam PH — apabila perkara ini tidak berlaku, mereka mendoakan kerajaan ini hanya kekal selama setengah penggal pula.

Walaupun kini sudah mentadbir kerajaan persekutuan selama 14 bulan, Pakatan Harapan masih dalam proses membiasakan diri dalam pentadbiran. Read the rest of this entry »

Should Najib, Hamidah or both go to Tanjong Rambutan?

I fully agree with the Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad that those who believe that I was the mastermind in the formation of Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia should go to Tanjong Rambutan.

The question is whether it is Datuk Seri Najib Razak, the former Prime Minister or Hamidah Othman, former Bersatu leader who should go or both should go to Tanjong Rambutan!

Hamidah Othman, former Bersatu vice president, said she was the person who told Najib that I had pitched the idea of setting up Bersatu to Mahathir at Perdana Leadership Foundation on March 4, 2016, “after it became apparent that the People’s Declaration movement to depose Najib” had failed to gain traction

Hamidah is a very poor liar and has no respect for the sanctity of dates and events.

March 4, 2016 was the first time that I appeared in a public gathering with Mahathir to sign and launch the People’s Declaration to Save Malaysia from global kleptocracy and nobody in the right senses would talk about the People’s Declaration not having any traction on the very first day of its signing and launch.

Furthermore, I am not aware of any meeting at Perdana Leadership Foundation on March 4, 2016, which is a complete concoction of Hamidah. The People’s Declaration was launched at the University of Malaya Alumni Club House on March 4, 2016 and I am not aware of any mythical meeting of that date at the Perdana Leadership Foundation which I allegedly attended.

I am prepared to give Najib the benefit of the doubt that he is a not full-blown mental case – but this would mean he is an unscrupulous, unprincipled, Machiavellian and incorrigible liar without any of the noble values which great religions seek to imbibe in their followers!

I am prepared to give Datuk Seri Najib Razak the benefit of the doubt that he is not a full-blown mental case – but this would mean that he is an unscrupulous, unprincipled, Machiavellian and incorrigible liar without any of the noble values which the great religions seek to imbibe in their followers!

I shudder at the thought that our beloved nation has such a person as Prime Minister for nine years!

Najib said yesterday he will only reveal the identity of the person, who he claimed had revealed my plan on creating Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, “if necessary”.

I will not bet Najib will be able do so, though if such a person exists, it will at least salvage his credibility by one iota that he had not manufactured such a lie from whole cloth, and he could claim that he was only guilty of the shocking gullibility to fall for such a tall claim.

But such a fraudster who could convince a Prime Minister with such a tall tale is a person all Malaysians should know. Over to Najib, who is this person if there is one? Read the rest of this entry »

What has happened to the proposed Jalan V David in Petaling Jaya?

It has been asked as to what had been the difference to DAP between the days when it was in the Opposition and the days when it was part of Pakatan Harapan Federal Government.

One simple answer is that DAP had only to think of itself when it was in Opposition, but when it is part of Pakatan Harapan federal government, it must also think of the interests of the other three coalition parties, namely PKR, Bersatu and Amanah.

The political principles and objectives of the DAP cannot change, but we are operating in a different milieu, and we cannot speak out like in the past when we are in Opposition, as we should pursue our principles and objectives internally in the Pakatan Harapan coalition government.

The four political parties have different principles and objectives, but we are bound by the common principles of the Pakatan Harapan manifesto which formed the basis of the Pakatan Harapan coalition government. Read the rest of this entry »

Let Sandakan by-election provide the great thrust and boost in the start of the second year of Pakatan Harapan federal government and Warisan-led Sabah State Government to continue the agenda of change to create a New Malaysia and a new Sabah

This is the time for report cards for the first anniversary of the historic decision of the 14th General Election of May 9, 2018.

The first anniversary in two days’ time is marked by the appointment of a new Chief Justice and a new Inspector-General of Police, both important and positive developments in the building of a New Malaysia to undertake institutional reforms to establish a New Malaysia which upholds the doctrine of separation of powers, the rule of law and to restore institutional independence and professionalism.

There had been ups and downs, breakthroughs, setbacks and even failures from the Pakatan Harapan promises of the last general election, but what is most important is whether Pakatan Harapan remains committed to the promises and agenda for change for a new Malaysia and a new Sabah and prepared to learn from our setbacks and failures.

The two important appointments of the Chief Justice and the Inspector-General of Police, as well as the earlier appointment of the first Chief Justice from Sabah, represent a good end for the first-year anniversary of the historic, peaceful and democratic change for Malaysia the first time in six decades in Malaysia and first time in 55 years for Sabah.

One reason why I have kept a low publicity profile in the past year – monstrous lies that I am the puppet-master with Mahathir and Cabinet as my puppets and stooges

We live in an unprecedented era of lies and falsehoods – thanks to the advent of the Internet and the social media.

The two latest Whatsapp images I saw represent this genre of lies and falsehoods – one portraying me as a puppet-master pulling the strings of puppets signifying PKR, Bersatu and AMANAH while the other portraying me as lording over and censuring Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohmad, Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and Mohamad Sabu, pictured in submissive poses, laying down the new Do’s and Don’t’s, viz: “Saya tak mahu Melayu BERSATU! Saya tak mahu KEADILAN kepada Melayu! Tak perlu tunai AMANAH kepada Melayu!”

These are monstrous lies and falsehoods – picturing me as the greatest threat to Malays and Muslims in the Malay and Muslim constituency, while among the non-Malays and non-Muslims, DAP and I are condemned as having sold out the rights and interests of non-Malays and non-Muslims.

This appears to be a “Damned if you do, damned if you don’t” situation.

This is in fact one reason why I have kept a low publicity profile in the past year – the monstrous lies that I am the puppet master with the Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad and the Federal Government Cabinet as just my puppets and stooges. Read the rest of this entry »

Greatest achievement of Pakatan Harapan Government in its first year in office is to end the infamy of Malaysia as a global kleptocracy and the work-in-progress in transforming Malaysia into a nation of integrity

In a week’s time, it will be the first anniversary of the historic May 9, 2018 decision of the Malaysian electorate in the 14th General Election to bring about a peaceful and democratic change of Federal Government for the first time in six decades.

There are those who want to see the great Malaysian hopes of the May 9, 2018 decision to bring about a New Malaysia of unity, freedom, justice and prosperity to fail like the Arab Spring at the beginning of this decade, which descended into chaos and disorder with countries like Syria, Libya and Yemen even worse-off than before Arab Spring.

Although the majority of Malaysians had not expected the 14th General Election of May 9, 2018 to produce a change of the Federal Government for the first time in six decades, the euphoria of the historic occasion had unleashed new hopes and expectations that the corruption, abuses of power, injustices and depredations of the past six decades could be immediately undone overnight.

Pakatan Harapan must remain true and committed to the principal objectives of the PH general election manifesto to reduce the costs of living, achieve institutional reforms, engineer economic growth, restore power to Sabah and Sarawak and to build an inclusive and moderate Malaysia.

Three reasons why the voters of Semenyih should vote for the Pakatan Harapan candidate on March 2

There are three reasons why the voters of Semenyih should vote for the Pakatan Harapan candidate, Muhammad Aiman Zainali on Saturday, March 2, 2019.

Last night, a former UMNO Minister in a by-election ceramah questioned the appointment of non-Malays and non-Muslims as Finance Minister, Attorney-General, and Chief Justice.

This is extremism at its worst, against the very spirit of the Malaysian Constitution and the principle of Malaysian nation-building.

It is not that Malaysia did not have a non-Malay and a non-Muslim as Finance Minister, Attorney-General and Chief Justice in the past.

The MCA President Tun Tan Siew Sin was Finance Minister until 1974 and Lim Guan Eng is the first non-Malay and non-Muslim to become a Finance Minister in the past 44 years. In the early years of Malaysia, the posts of Attorney-General and Chief Justice was also held by a non-Malay and non-Muslim. Read the rest of this entry »

Post-14GE Malaysia is facing the most toxic and vicious politicking in the nation’s history

Malaysia in post-14th General Election is facing the most toxic and vicious politicking in the nation’s history.

If Malaysian politics was as toxic and vicious in the past as now, my LLB (Hons) degree would have been raised as an issue – in the way that Pakatan Harapan leaders, whether Minister or Deputy Minister, are now being questioned about their academic qualifications, whether with or without basis.

I must thank my lucky stars that I was not questioned about my LL.B. (Hons) degree and asked to prove my credentials, as it would be quite a bother to do so – as I do not know where is my LL.B. (Hons) certificate.

I should be mightily offended by the latest social media offensive that I am angling to get into the Cabinet after being earlier bruited of becoming Prime Minister of Pakatan Harapan

I should be mightily offended by the latest social media offensive that I am angling to get into the Cabinet after being earlier bruited of becoming Prime Minister of the Pakatan Harapan government in Putrajaya if Pakatan Harapan should win the 14th General Election.

What a great letdown – from the pinnacle of the post of Prime Minister to a place in the Cabinet.

But I am not offended in the least, but was quite amused and tickled, as both these politically-motivated speculation are just simply untrue.

Just as I had never thought about being Prime Minister – most unthinkable after Pakatan Harapan had announced its agreement that if PH wins the 14th General Election, Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad would be the Prime Minister, to be followed by Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in mid-term – such politically-motivated rumours were still conjured, manufactured and peddled both before and after the 14th General Election, involving the highest personalities – reaching all the way to Sri Perdana previously and now the highest echelons of leadership in the Opposition.
