PAS leadership admitting for the first time PAS is “down” but PAS will go further “down” if the PAS leadership continues to take a contrary position from two former PAS Presidents Fadzil Nor and Yusuf Rawa and former Mursydul Am Nik Aziz

At last, the PAS leadership of Datuk Seri Hadi Awang has admitted that under its stewardship, PAS is “down”.

I have never said that PAS is “out” but I dare to forecast that so long as the Hadi leadership continues to take a contrary position from the two former PAS Presidents Fadzil Nor and Yusuf Rawa and the former PAS Mursydul Am Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat, PAS will continue to go further “down” in the Malaysian political landscape.

In response to my statement yesterday, PAS secretary-general Takiyuddin Hassan said I should not underestimate PAS party despite its weaker results in the May 9 general election and although PAS is “down”, it is not “out”.

The Kota Bharu MP noted that his party had gone to the polls without relying on the support of others, unlike Amanah, PPBM or even DAP.

Is the PAS Secretary-General suggesting that that he envisages a day when PAS on its own can win a general election in Malaysia, without support from any other political party? If so, the PAS leaders are living in a world of their own, unrelated to the realities on the ground. Read the rest of this entry »

Port Dickson by-election is as history-making as the 14th General Election result of May 9, 2018 with a three-point five-month verdict endorsing a New Malaysia, Anwar Ibrahim as the eighth Prime Minister-designate and a New Port Dickson to restore PD’s previous glory and pre-eminence

The Port Dickson by-election is as history-making as the 14th General Election result of May 9, 2018 with a three-point five-month verdict endorsing a New Malaysia, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim as the eighth Prime Minister-designate after Tun Dr. Mahathir and a New Port Dickson to restore Port Dickson’s previous pre-eminence and glory as a premier tourist destination.

Despite a low voter turn-out of 58.3%, Anwar secured 31,016 votes or a 23,560-vote majority, which eclipsed that of the PKR’s Danyal Balagopal Abdullah who won the seat in the 14th general election by a margin of 17,710 votes with a voter turnout of 83%. Read the rest of this entry »

Its all too late, as the need to re-open Altantunya murder case is no more a distant thunder but in the very forefront of national consciousness of all policy makers and Malaysians – thanks to Najib himself

I must congratulate former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak for landing a new occupation – making a cameo appearance in a South Korean television drama as it not easy for a former Prime Minister of Najib’s “stature” to find a new occupation.

But he has probably committed the biggest blunder in his whole life when he tried to be a “hero” on the issue of re-opening of investigation into the mysterious murder of Mongolian model Altantunya Shaariibuu, striking the posture that he would order his assistant to lodge a police report against himself so that the authorities can start investigating if he was involved in several high profile murders while he was in power – which included the Altantunya Shaariibuu murder case.

The Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) report should be tabled as a White Paper in Parliament and a Parliamentary Select Committee on Institutional Reforms formed on the CEP proposals to be implemented, including the system for the appointment of judges

The Council of Eminent Persons (CEP) report should be tabled as a White Paper in Parliament and a Parliamentary Select Committee on Institutional Reforms formed on the CEP proposals to be implemented, including the system for the appointment of judges.

Recently, the CEP chairman Tun Daim Zainuddin called on the government to make the CEP’s recommendations available to the public.

He said that as part of the CEP’s efforts to look into the government finances, it had interviewed more than 300 individuals, including bankers, businessmen, civil servants, civil society members and union officials.
Those interviews had revealed a culture of turning a blind eye towards corruption.

Will Najib join me in a joint petition to the Prime Minister to re-open investigations into Mongolian Altantunya Shaariibuu? Will he second my motion if I propose in Parliament a re-opening of investigations of the Altantunya murder?

I said on Thursday that former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is guilty of telling lies almost every day.

To my astonishment, Najib immediately complied by telling a lie which I exposed in my statement yesterday.

Last evening, Najib was responsible for another lie when his aide lodged a police report to demand investigations into my claims that several high-profile deaths or murder cases should be reinvestigated. Read the rest of this entry »

How theatrical! When will Najib “order” police report against himself on the 1MDB scandal to establish his innocence?

How theatrical! When will former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak order his assistant to lodge a police report against himself on the 1MDB scandal to establish his innocence?

This will be the thought of many when they read news report of Najib “ordering” a police report against himself, so that the authorities can start investigating and establish his innocence of several high profile murders while he was in power.

I said yesterday that Najib is guilty of telling lies almost every day.

He has told another lie.

He said I have made “repeated calls” to the authorities to re-open investigations into high profile mysterious deaths.

Let me tell Najib that I had only once called for the re-opening of investigations into the high profile mysterious deaths like Altantunya Shaariibuu, Husain Najadi, Kevin Morais and Teoh Boon Hock after the Pakatan Harapan came into power in the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018 – and not “repeated calls”!

Najib’s theatrics remind of two other theatrical events. Read the rest of this entry »

Great news and fantastic breakthrough, Nie Ching!

Its great news and fantastic breakthrough, the announcement by the Deputy Education Minister, Teo Nie Ching in Kuching that stateless children in the country can now enroll in government schools beginning next year by merely producing their birth certificate.

Nie Ching said undocumented children still enroll themselves but they have two years to produce the necessary documents.

Apart from birth certificates, these children could produce either their adoption certificate if they are adopted or any court order.

It is estimated that there are about 300,000 stateless children under the age of 18 in the country.

The Education Minister, Maszlee Malik and the Deputy Education Minister Teo Nie Ching must be commended for resolving this very nettlesome problem, as in the past, it’s quite troublesome for them to enroll in government schools.

Teo’s announcement that the new policy also applies to them continuing their studies in secondary schools, allowing them to take public exams like the PT3, SPM, STPM is also be be applauded.

The great news and fantastic breakthrough announced by Nie Ching is the New Malaysia we want to build – a New Malaysia with greater compassion and more emphasis on human rights – after the historic decision of the 14th General Election on May 9, 2018.

Will Isa and PAS candidate lose their deposits in the Port Dickson by-election tomorrow?

The polling survey by Institute Darul Ehsan (IDE) on the eve of the by-election tomorrow is most interesting – not whether Anwar Ibrahim is on track to defeat his six opponents or Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan will sink to the bottom, but that the PAS candidate would only maintain its 11% of the votes in the 14th General
Election while former Mentri Besar Mohd Isa Samad would only garner 10 per cent of the votes cast.

If Isa Samad had not contested, and the bulk of the majority of UMNO votes had gone to the PAS candidate as conspired by UMNO and PAS leaders, then the PAS candidate would be able to retain his deposit in the by-election as PAS secured just short of 11% of the votes cast in the last general election (short of the 12.5% of the votes cast necessary to retain his deposit).

Many had expected Isa to do better than the PAS candidate in the by-election but the IDE survey shows otherwise, that PAS would maintain its 11% of the votes cast previously while Isa would get only 10 per cent of the votes cast, both forfeiting their deposits in being unable to get at least 12.5% of the votes cast.

This will have several implications. Read the rest of this entry »

An Open Letter to the Voters of Port Dickson – Be the first parliamentary constituency to endorse the 14th General Election result and claim ownership for the task of building a New Malaysia

Dear Voters of Port Dickson,

Malaysians saved Malaysia and made history on May 9, 2018, giving Malaysians a second chance to reset nation-building policies so that Malaysia will not become a failed and rogue state, on top of being a kakistocracy and global kleptocracyl

On Saturday, the voters of Port Dickson by-election has the opportunity the make history for the second time in six months, not only to vote for Anwar Ibrahim, the eighth Prime Minister-designate for Malaysia, but even more important, to endorse the 14th General Election result of May 9, 2018 and to claim ownership for the task of building of a New Malaysia.

A New Malaysia cannot be accomplished in a hundred days or in six months, but will take a decade of two. All Malaysians must develop a Big Picture and Long-term Vision perspectives. Read the rest of this entry »

Can Najib explain why he had never expressed any compunction or remorse for transforming Malaysia into a global kleptocracy in his nine years as 6th Prime Minister of Malaysia?

I read the latest fulminations by Datuk Seri Najib Razak with shock and sadness, that the former occupant of the highest political office in the land could be so devoid of both sense and sensibility that he could indulge in a daily nonsensical verbal diarrhoea agaisnt me, confirming that he has no respect whatsover for for the noble values in life, i.e. truth, justice and honour.

Before the 14th General Election, he indulged in lies, falsehoods and fake news as alleging that when Pakatan Harapan captures power, I will edge out Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad to be the Prime Minister of Malaysia, that the DAP has a Christian agenda to replace Islam with Christianity as the official religion of the country (when I am not even a Christian) and that the Malay monarchical system will be abolished and Malaysia become a republic.

This is the sixth month of the Pakatan Harapan government in Putrajaya, and none of these great lies have come to pass – and they will not come to pass under any Pakatan Harapan government in the future.

Now, after UMNO/BN’s surprising defeat in the 14th General Election, where he was toppled as Malaysia’s sixth Prime Minister – although he had expected to win big and even recapture parliamentary two-thirds majority with gerrymandering of parliamentary constituencies, undemocratic practices and repressive rule – Najib is resorting to comparatively smaller lies against Pakatan Harapan and DAP leaders.

Najib is guilty of telling lies almost every day. Read the rest of this entry »

What do you do when the former Prime Minister writes gibberish? Is this preparatory to a plea of insanity in any subsequent trial?

I read former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s continued posting on the death of Teoh Beng Hock with profound shock.

What do you do when the former Prime Minister writes gibberish? Is this preparatory to a plea of insanity in any subsequent trial?

Najib asked why I chose now to say “Najib did not kill Teoh Beng Hock, but the Najib administration must be held responsible for Beng Hock’s death”.

He even wanted the present Pakatan Harapan government to be held responsible for Beng Hock’s death, falling from the 14th Floor of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission premises in Selangor in Shah Alam in July 2009.

Unless Najib returns to sanity and stop uttering gibberish, there is no point in further engagement with him on the issue. Read the rest of this entry »

The Port Dickson by-election is sequel to the historic battle of May 9, 2018 – a battle of the future versus the past as the second step in the struggle of a New Malaysia to be born to give Malaysians a second chance to reset nation-building policies

The Port Dickson parliamentary by-election is the most important by-election in the nation’s 61-year history.

It is not a battle between the Pakatan Harapan candidate, Anwar Ibrahim, designated as the eighth Prime Minister of Malaysia after Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s tenure as the seventh Prime Minister, and six other candidates ranged against him in the by-election.

It is the sequel to the historic battle of the 14th General Election of May 9, 2018, a battle of the future versus the past as the second step in the struggle of a New Malaysia to be born to give Malaysians a second chance to reset nation-building policies.

What would have become of Malaysia if former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak had been right about the outcome of the 14th General Election, when he was so sure not only of winning big, but even to recapture two-thirds parliamentary majority which UMNO/BN lost a decade ago in the 12th General Election in 2008?

Najib did not kill Teoh Beng Hock but the Najib government must be held responsible for Beng Hock’s death

Former Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak seems to be writing his own statements, which is probably why he is making the most elementary of mistakes which his highly-paid professional propagandists would not make.

Najib alleged that I had claimed that Kevin Morai’s murder was connected to 1MDB.

I have never made such an allegation, and I challenge Najib to quote chapter and verse from any of my statements in the past where I had made such an allegation. Read the rest of this entry »

Najib is the last person qualified to talk about “justice” unless he is prepared to volunteer to be first witness of the PAC re-investigation of 1MDB scandal to help cleanse Malaysia’s infamy and ignominy as a global kleptocracy

Let me put it straight to former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak that he should stop strutting around fulminating about “justice”, as he is the last person qualified to talk about “justice” unless he is prepared to volunteer to be the first witness of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) re-investigation of the 1MDB scandal to help cleanse Malaysia’s infamy and ignominy as a global kleptocracy.

How can Najib babble about “justice” when he perpetrated the 1MDB “kleptocracy at its worst”, shamed Malaysia as a global kleptocracy, and aided and abetted the fugive financier Jho Low in the crime and corruption of the 1MDB scandal?

A note from Malaysian expert in Australia Dr. John Funston on 14th General Election

When I visited Canberra in my recent tour of eight Australian and New Zealand cities last month, a came across a note from a Malaysian expert in Austraia, Dr. John Funston, of the Department of Political and Social Change, College of Asia and the Pacific of Australian National University (ANU) whose preliminary studies showed that Malay support for UMNO in Peninsular Malaysia in the 14th General Election was only about 5% higher than support for Pakatan Harapan, and not 15% as had earlier been estimated by Merdeka Centre.

Polls analysis by Merdeka Centre have earlier estimated that some 95% of the Chinese and 70-75% of the Indian voters voted for Pakatan Harapan and a New Malaysia, while only 25 – 30% of the Malays voted for Pakatan Harapan and a New Malaysia.

Why did Najib allow travesties of justice during his premiership and did not re-open investigations into mysterious deaths like that of Altantunya Shaariibuu, Kevin Morais, Hussain Najadi and Teoh Beng Hock?

I was taken aback when I read of the speedy agreement of the former Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, to my proposal when I campaigned for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the Port Dickson by-election on Friday, proposing that several mysterious deaths which occurred during Najib’s tenure should be re-opened for investigation, and even for the establishment of special inquiries.

Among these mysterious deaths were the Mongolian model Altatunya Shaariibuu who was killed in a deserted area in Shah Alam on October 18, 2006 and her remains destroyed by C-4 explosives; Deputy Public Prosecutor Kevin Morais who was last seen alive on 4th September 2015 and his body subsequently found in a drum filled with concrete; Hussain Najadi, the AmBank founder and banker who was fatally shot on 29th July 2013 in a parking lot in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur; and Teoh Beng Hock, a DAP political aide to Selangor State Exco Member, Ean Yong Hian Wah who was found dead on 16th July 2009 falling from the 14th floor of Selangor MACC premises while in MACC custody.

Every PAC member should be given a copy of the two books on 1MDB scandal – the “Sarawak Report” and “Billion Dollar Whale” – and every PAC member should have read them by Tuesday for PAC to re-open investigations into 1MDB scandal

Every Public Accounts Committee member should be given a copy of the two books on the 1MDB scandal, viz. “The Sarawak Report – The Inside Story of the 1MDB Expose” by the Sarawak Report editor, Clare Rewcastle Brown and “Billion Dollar Whale – the Man who fooled the Wall Street, Hollywood and the World” by Tom Wright and Bradley Hope, two Wall Street Journal reporters.

Furthermore, all the PAC members should have read the two books on the 1MDB scandal by next Tuesday when they start to carry out Parliament’s directive following an unanimous parliamentary motion last August to “conduct again a detailed investigation on the embezzlement of monies and the scandal with regard to 1MDB and its related companies in order to restore the dignity of the Dewan Rakyat; and that all related information should be made public”.

Call on voters of Port Dickson to create history twice in six months – first time on May 9 and second time on October 13; and to vote for a New Malaysia and a New Port Dickson

I call on the voters of Port Dickson to create history twice in six months.

The first time when they made history was on May 9, 2018 when together with justice-loving Malaysians, the voters of Port Dickson with a voter turnout olf 83%, voted solidly for a peaceful and democratic change of government in Putrajaya which for the first in many years made Malaysians both inside the country and in the worldwide Diaspora, stand tall and proud to be Malaysians.

The Pakatan Rakyat candidate won with 36,225 votes with a great majority of 17,710 votes, while the PAS candidate who took part in the three-cornered contest lost his deposit, securing only 6,594 votes. Read the rest of this entry »

Ronald Kiandee should recuse himself from PAC investigation into 1MDB scandal as he was Deputy Speaker of previous Parliament banning questions and debate on 1MDB scandal

As the Pakatan Harapan candidate for Port Dickson parliamentary by-election Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has just said, on his return to Parliament, Tun Mahathir Mohamad would continue to focus on his Prime Ministerial duties while he would focus on parliamentary reforms.

There is no doubt that parliamentary reforms in Malaysia is long overdue.

The last 13th Parliament became an international joke and charade as Members of Parliament were not allowed to submit questions or to debate the 1MDB scandal, when the whole world was aware of its monstrous criminality and moral turpitude.

Meaning of Port Dickson by-election: Solid endorsement for a New Malaysia and the vision of a New Port Dickson to restore its previous greatness as a premier tourist destination

The Port Dickson by-election on October 13 is important not only for Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to return to Parliament in preparation for his becoming the eighth Prime Minister of Malaysia as decided by the Pakatan Harapan leaders, but is an important building block of the New Malaysia the country has an opportunity to build after the reset of nation-building policies following the historic 14GE election on May 9, 2018.

The Port Dickson by-election on Oct. 13 has two major objectives: Firstly, as a solid endorsement of the building of a New Malaysia; and secondly, the vision of the building of a New Port Dickson to restore its previous greatness as a premier tourist destination.

The building of New Malaysia and the undoing of the corruption, abuses of power, injustices and repression of the past decades cannot be accomplished in one hundred days or five months, but is a sacred mission and task which needs the support of more and more Malaysians and may take a decade or two.
