Was Professor Ahmad Murad Merican referring to UMNO among others for the Malays be regarded as synonymous of being “negative, lazy, corrupt, hypocritical and racist”?

(Versi BM)

Was Professor Ahmad Muad Merican of the International Institute of Islamic Thought and Civilisation, International Islamic University Malaysia, referring to UMNO among others for the Malays to be regarded as synonymous of being “negative, lazy, corrupt, hypocritical and racist”?

Murad said this at the roundtable conference on “Rebranding of Malay Politics” held over the weekend. Read the rest of this entry »

Will Zahid sack Prime Minister Ismail Sabri from UMNO if the Registrar of Societies (ROS) does not approve the UMNO constitutional amendment to further postpone UMNO party election until after the 15GE?

(Versi BM)

The question that is being asked by politically-aware Malaysians is whether the UMNO President, Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and the former UMNO President and former Prime Minister, Najib Razak, will sack Prime Minister, Ismail Sabri from UMNO if the Registrar of Societies (ROS) does not approve the UMNO constitutional amendment to further postpone UMNO party election until after the 15th General Election.

UMNO Secretary-General Ahmad Maslan said yesterday that apart from complying with the ROS and hold its internal election as required, UMNO has a ‘Plan B’ if the ROS rejects the UMNO constitutional amendment, although he declined to reveal what ‘Plan B’ is. Read the rest of this entry »

Has Tok Mat bitten off more than he could chew?

(Versi BM)

Has UMNO Deputy President Mohamad Hasan bitten off more than he could chew in his interview with Asia Times, which is not helped by the explanation of the newest UMNO Supreme Council member, Isham Jalil, that Tok Mat was merely preparing himself for the worst-case scenario in Najib Razak’s corruption trlal.

Tok Mat is correct about the right of everyone to a fair trial but this cannot hide the fact that his protest that he had been misquoted as saying that Najib should go to jail for his role in the 1MDB scandal is not confirmed by anyone listening to the full tape recording.

Strange things happening now in BN and UMNO

(Versi BM)

Strange things are happening now in Barisan Nasional and UMNO.

Firstly, the bombshell of the sacked UMNO Supreme Council member Tajuddin Abdul Rahman that a group of senior and influential UMNO leaders had met in his house in 2020 and agreed that Ahmad Zahid Hamidi should go as UMNO President and brokered a deal that would see Zahid step down amicably but UMNO Deputy President Mohamad Hasan and former Prime Minister/UMNO President Najib Razak later reneged and backed off.

UMNO “implosion” over what is right and wrong has taken more than four years to occur

(Versi BM)

The UMNO “implosion” over what is right and wrong has taken more than four years to occur.

I had asked last month whether there was nobody in UMNO who dared to say that UMNO should not seek the return of Najib Razak as Prime Minister as his years as Prime Minister when Malaysia became “kleptocracy at its worst” worldwide was nothing to be proud of.

Now it appears that I was both right and wrong.

The two blackspots of the 48th Barisan Nasional Anniversary Convention

(Versi BM)

The 48th Barisan National Anniversary Convention seems to be an answer to my statement that Malaysia should rectify the wrong direction we have taken in the last half-a-century and return to the nation-building principles as agreed by the nation’s founding fathers in the Malaysian Constitution and Rukun Negara if Malaysia is not to end up as a failed state.

I had said that the first three Prime Ministers Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Razak and Tun Hussein, would have been shocked that the nation had deviated from the founding nation-building principles to the extent that there are Ministers in the Cabinet who do not accept the Rukun Negara principles and there are leaders who are proud that Malaysia is notorious in the world as a kleptocracy.

Is there nobody in UMNO who dare say that UMNO should not seek the return of Najib as Prime Ministe and that his years as Prime Minister when Malaysia became “kleptocracy at its worst” worldwide is not something to be proud of

(Versi BM)

Yesterday, I said Malaysians need new political aspirations, and “If Najib loves Malaysia, he will contribute to this process of returning Malaysia to the founding nation-building principles our founding fathers, including his father, had agreed when Malaysia was founded – and helped remove the national scar where Malaysia was identified with ‘kleptocracy at its worst’ worldwide”.

I suggested that ”there is nothing that Najib can do better than to just disappear from the political arena instead trying to be Prime Minister again”.

Khaled Nordin was right on the need for a formula of genuine power-sharing and not to resort to appointing token non-Malays in the government but wrong to claim that UMNO, MCA and MIC are the best candidates

(Versi BM)

UMNO vice president and former Johor Mentri Besar Mohamad Khaled Nordin is right that Malaysia needs a formula of genuine power-sharing and not to resort to appointing token non-Malays in the government but wrong to claim that UMNO, MCA and MIC are the best candidates.

The Alliance formula proved to be a failure in the third general election in 1969 and was given the funeral rites by Tun Razak. But Razak’s Barisan Nasional formula was destroyed by his own son with his kleptocratic and UMNO hegemonic ways. Read the rest of this entry »

Height of irresponsibility of UMNO “court cluster” to force general election in Johore when for the last two weeks, Johor had the highest number of Covid-19 cases and deaths in all states of Malaysia

(Versi BM)

It is the height of irresponsibility of the UMNO “court cluster” to force general election in Johore when for the last two weeks, Johore had the highest number of Covid-19 cases and deaths in all the states of Malaysia.

The UMNO “court cluster” want the Johore state general election to be a rehearsal of the 15th General Election which, they hope, will restore UMNO political hegemony with the return of UMNO hegemon/kleptocrats to power – and possibly a convicted criminal of corruption as the 10th Prime Minister of Malaysia.

Puad should explain how much public funds he misspent to mislead Malaysians and Malaysian students all over the world that the 1MDB scandal never existed when he was Director-General of JASA from March 2015 to April 2018

(Versi BM)

I have said that I will not waste time on UMNO Supreme Council member, Puad Zakarshi, if he is unable to answer the many queries I have raised about him.

He has not been able to do so, and I have no time for him although he is desperately trying to prove his usefulness to UMNO despite being dropped as an UMNO candidate for Batu Pahat parliamentary constituency in the 2018 general election – after being defeated in the 2013 general election.

Puad Zakarshi is proving to be national fraud – making baseless allegations that he knows nothing about, unable to distinguish between right from wrong and pretending not to understand corruption and kleptocracy

The UMNO Supreme Council member, Puad Zarkashi is proving to be a national fraud making baseless allegations that he knows nothing about, unable to distinguish between right from wrong and pretending not to understand corruption and kleptocracy.

His latest outburst against accusing me of being “selective” in pushing for a Royal Commission of Inquiry, saying that I am not the “most hypocritical politician” for being silent on calls for an RCI into other matters, including on former central bank governor Zeti Akhtar Aziz and former minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop’s role in the 1MDB scandal, is the best example.

The political news is grim but the Covid-19 news is grimmer.

Following the UMNO Supreme Council decision on Wednesday night to immediately retract support to the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, the Muhyiddin government tottered but did not fall yesterday. Read the rest of this entry »

#kerajaangagal71 – As Tajuddin will quit when UMNO says so, does this mean that UMNO supreme council does not think Tajuddin’s conduct was insensitive enough and UMNO’s political considerations must prevail?

I am rather intrigued by the statement by the former UMNO leader and Prime Minister who said that Tajuddin Abdul Rahman will apologise for his gaffes and being insensitive at a press conference yesterday on the LRT accident but will resign as Prasarana chairperson “as soon as the Umno supreme council orders all Umno members to let go of their positions at an appropriate time”.

Does this mean that the UMNO supreme council does not think that Tajuddin’s gaffes and insensitivity at his infamous press conference was insensitive enough, and that what was more important were UMNO supreme council’s “political considerations” and UMNO’s political considerations must prevail?

Malaysia has descended into a hypo-kakistocracy (hypocrisy-kakistocracy) with the statement by Muhyiddin that he had advised UMNO Ministers not to quit

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Malaysia has descended into a hypo-kakistocracy (hypocrisy-kakistocracy) with the statement by the Prime Minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, that he had advised UMNO Ministers not to quit.

Muhyiddin said he had advised the UMNO Ministers to remain in the Cabinet to take into account the people’s interest and the country.

Muhyiddin is being quite hypocritical, when what he really meant was that the UMNO Ministers should remain to take into account Muhyiddin’s interest and survival and not that of the country. Read the rest of this entry »

Sin Chew interview only exposed Annuar Musa as a “Little Trump” purveying disinformation and fake news

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

The Sin Chew interview of the sacked Barisan Nasional secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa exposed him as a “Little Trump” purveying disinformation and fake news, even when he had been elevated to Ministerial rank

Annuar gave three reasons why UMNO should not ally with DAP.

Annuar is the most hard-core top UMNO leader who had been going around accusing the DAP of being anti-Malay, anti-Islam and anti-Royalty – all despicable lies. Read the rest of this entry »

Restore the mandate to Pakatan Harapan and with Anwar Ibrahim as the ninth Prime Minister, Malaysia can begin to fulfil her aspiration to be a united, harmonious, multi-racial world-class great nation and “a beacon of light in a disturbed and distracted world”

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

UMNO, Bersatu and PAS have failed to form a stable government as the Malay Unity rhetoric has proved to be a false promise for Malaysia.

If I had made this statement, it would be taken as proof of the allegation that I am anti-Malay and anti-Islam, but this was stated by Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal, the President of Warisan and former Sabah Chief Minister, at the recent Regional Outlook Forum 2021, hosted by the ISEAS–Yusof Ishak Institute in Singapore last Thursday.

Shafie said Malaysian politics needs a reset in 2021 and beyond as the Malay unity rhetoric is proven to be a false promise. Read the rest of this entry »

If the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Khairy Jamaluddin is right that Malaysia is set to achieve herd immunity in 18 months against Covid-19 from February after the arrival of the first batch of the initial Covid-19 vaccine supply, we will only be out of the woods of the Covid-19 pandemic in July 2022.

Yet UMNO wants to have the 15th General Election by the end of the first quarter of 2021!

Can UMNO return to its founding decades when UMNO Presidents were known for unquestioned integrity and honesty?

(Tatal ke bawah untuk kenyataan versi BM)

Two recent news items attracted widespread attention.

The first quoted the Barisan Nasional secretary-general Annuar Musa as saying that there was a conspiracy to undo the UMNO and BN’s policy of ‘No Anwar, No DAP’.

The second quoted the UMNO advisory board chairman, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah who said UMNO’s ‘No DAP, no Anwar’ policy may not be cast in stone. Read the rest of this entry »
