Sultan Pahang-Support BN Govt.

In a BERNAMA report of 2009-Sept-24, Sultan Pahang urged his subjects to continue supporting BN,” so that more development projects can be implemented for their benefit”.

This is not the first time that the Sultan has openly taken a partisan stand in politics. Previously, he had openly asked his subjects to vote for BN.

Surely,the Sultan must know that he is the Head of State for all his subjects. As a constitutional monarch, he must respect the State Constitution and remain neutral. If he wishes to remain partisan, he must gentlemanly abdicate his position.

He is then free to join UMNO and if fielded, he can contest in the General Elections. I am sure that many of his subjects will relish the chance of standing against him and possibly trouncing him.

To maintain his dignity and position, he must stay above politics. He can’t have it both ways.

While the Rakyat respects his position as the Sultan, he must equally respect the rights of the Rakyat.Under the Constitution, the rights of the Rakyat is supreme.

Please be advised.

Pakatan's ONE Federal Manifesto

The Rakyat is generally not satisfied with the state of affairs of the country .If we examine closely, most of them are not happy with the state of affairs of the following and want them reformed:

1. Judiciary
2. Police
3. Anti Corruption Commission (MACC)
4. Media
5. Economy
6. Civil Service/Ministries
7. Armed Forces

Unfortunately, almost all of them fall under the purview of the Federal Govt. This is where the dilemma is.

Therefore, to win support, Pakatan must be seen to be serious about taking over the Federal Govt. in the next General Elections. As a key strategy, focus on Federal matters must be given priority over State matters.

The stated reformation of the Federal bodies and national agencies must be clearly included in the Pakatan Federal manifesto. Whilst State manifesto caters for each respective State, ONE Federal manifesto will be the key to wrest power at the Federal govt.

Another key strategy must be stronger focus in East Malaysia. As a rule, focus on East Malaysia matters must be given priority over West Malaysia matters. There must be a clear plan to win over the people of Sabah and Sarawak.

If these two key strategies are executed well, a Federal takeover is within reach.

GE 2008 Predictions : Blast from the past

This simple flyer below was published on the eve of the last General Elections ( 2008-Mar-08):


1. B/N akan masih memerintah Malaysia
2. UMNO akan gantikan Pak Lah dengan PM baru
3. Kroni Pak Lah (saperti Khairy dsn)akan hilang kuasa
4. BN tidak boleh menukar dasar sesesukahati .
5. Pembankang akan memainkan peranan berkesan sebagai “check & balance”
6. Wakil Rakyat BN tidak boleh bersikap angkuh lagi
7. BN kena tadbir negara dengan telus
8. Institutsi Kerajaan dapat berfungsi tanpa campurtangan politik
9. BN akan buang wakil BN yang korup untuk mengambil hati Rakyat
10. Sistem Kehakiman kita akan pulih.

It is interesting to note that the top 5 predictions have actually occurred. The bottom 5 are still in a state of ‘touch and go’. So, there is still more work to be done on both sides of the fence.

Husni -Opposition tactics can destroy the country

In a Bernama report released on 2009-Sept-05, Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah was quoted as saying:

“The tactics and political gimmicks used by the opposition to attack the Barisan Nasional (BN) can jeopardise efforts in developing the country's economy and can destroy the country if the people were taken in by the opposition's gimmicks.

"They try to confuse the people by making various excuses to erode public confidence in the monarchy, judiciary, police force, military and the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission.”

Ahmad Husni said this when commenting on the action of the opposition members of the Perak State Assembly in holding a 'State Assembly sitting' at a hotel, here on Wednesday.

The Minister, who is the Tambun MP from Perak, is talking from a UMNO perspective and continues to be in a denial mode even after 8 by-elections.

The Rakyat is not stupid.It is the BN govt. that has eroded the Rakyat’s confidence of the public institutions.

Any person in the street can list at least 3 recent instances whereby public institutions were manipulated to serve UMNO and BN’s interests. These ranges from abuse of govt. facilities/ media , selective persecution / prosecution, crony appointments and awards etc.

These abuses must be corrected for Malaysia’s and Malaysians sake.

The Tambun MP, a key figure in the Perak UMNO/BN, is himself tainted. The Perak UMNO initiated takeover of the Perak State Govt. through unethical means removes any moral authority or creditability that he has to talk about public confidence.

The people of Perak will not forget people like Husni, Zamry and the likes of them and God willing, will reject them in the next General Elections.

There is a new dawn for Malaysia and people associated with Kerajaan “Rampasan Kuasa” Perak belongs to an inglorious past and will be rejected by the Rakyat of Perak.

Rakyat must accede to what Najib wants

The Rakyat in Perak, Selangor, Penang, Kedah and Kelantan have kicked BN out of their respective States last year.

On 2009-Jan-29, Najib took over the Perak UMNO Liaison Chairmanship and engineered the down fall of the Pakatan Perak govt.BN succeeded in getting 3 ADUNs to jump ship.

On 2009-Apr-24, he took over Selangor UMNO Liaison Chairmanship. While officiating the Kuala Selangor UMNO Division meeting on 2009-Aug-09, he blatantly told the nation that Selangor is his next target.

So, based on past records, it is almost certain that some Selangor ADUNs will be persuaded to jump ship using the carrot and stick approach.

So, it appears that Najib is showing his hands again. To him, the end justifies the means.

It does not matter that these are legitimate govts. voted in by the Rakyat and appointed by the respective Sultans. It does not matter what means are used to persuade these ADUNs as long as they jump ship.

The worst of it all is that these are being done blatantly without regard to the values and norms of religion and ethical standards.

And this man is our Prime Minister and this man wants the Rakyat to put their faith and trust in him.

Surely, such disrespect of the Rakyat wishes and democratic process, will not go unpunished? Surely, BN must realize that the ground has shifted and the Rakyat no longer tolerates such shenanigans?

It appears that another disappearing act(a Najib's trackmark?)is on the cards ……
