Pandikar violated MP’s freedom of speech

Pandikar violated MP’s freedom of speech, court told

  | January 8, 2018
Lawyer N Surendran cites Federal Constitution on freedom of speech in Dewan Rakyat in PJ Selatan MP Hee Loy Sian's suit against speaker for rejecting questions.
KUALA LUMPUR: Petaling Jaya Selatan MP Hee Loy Sian told the High Court that the Dewan Rakyat speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia had breached freedom of speech in Parliament when he rejected questions related to 1MDB.
In the hearing before Justice Kamaluddin Md Said in chambers, Hee’s lawyer N Surendran said that Pandikar had violated Article 63(2) of the Federal Constitution that guarantees freedom of speech in the Dewan Rakyat.
“We said that several Federal Court decisions have stated that courts can inquire into the Dewan Rakyat’s decision when the Speaker had exceeded his jurisdiction.
“Everyone including the house of representatives is subordinate to the Federal Constitution,” he told reporters after the hearing.
Meanwhile, senior federal counsel Shamsul Bolhassan representing Pandikar, argued that courts cannot question any proceedings in the Dewan Rakyat.
“Any decision made by the Speaker is an integral part of the proceedings in the Dewan Rakyat.
“Two recent Federal Court decisions had affirmed the legal principles in parliamentary privileges and non-justifiability of its’ proceedings,” Shamsul said, referring to two cases related to former Selangor speaker Teng Chang Khim’s decision in the state assembly.
In a recent ruling by the Federal Court on Aug 2017, it was decided that the courts cannot interfere into the proceedings in the Dewan Rakyat or state legislative assemblies.
The apex court had previously allowed Teng’s appeal to challenge two lower court decisions that did not rule in his favour.
He had declared the Port Klang state seat as vacant in 2011 after its former assemblyman, Badrul Hisham Abdullah was absent in the state assembly for six months.
Badrul later filed a lawsuit to nullify Teng’s decision.
Justice Kamaluddin had fixed Feb 19 for a decision on whether Hee’s suit should be struck out.
Pandikar had previously applied to strike out Hee’s suit on the grounds the suit had encroached into parliamentary privileges.
Hee took Pandikar and Dewan Rakyat secretary Roosme Hamzah to court last year for rejecting his questions related to 1MDB.
The PKR MP is seeking a court declaration that Pandikar’s decision to reject his questions related to 1MDB dated July 21, 2017 be made null and void.
Hee had requested to ask the government whether it had raised any objection on the United States Department of Justice’s (DoJ) forfeiture suit.
He also wanted to know the whereabouts of businessman Low Taek Jho (Jho Low) as well as the status of Low as a Malaysian citizen as he was alleged to have obtained citizenship in one or more other countries.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Azalina Othman Said had said Hee’s action had tarnished the good name of the Dewan Rakyat.
“As a lawmaker, the PKR MP must be aware of what the Federal Constitution says about the rights and privileges of parliament.”

Kita akan menang semua, dapat kerusi gred A

Kita akan menang semua, dapat kerusi gred A, kata AMANAH selepas dapat kerusi paling sikit
ARIF ATAN  -  January 7, 2018 9:59 pm
Pemimpin PH dalam konvensyen menjelang PRU 14

Rata-rata pimpinan AMANAH yang ditemui selepas berakhirnya Konvensyen Pakatan Harapan hari ini mengambil sikap berlapang dada selepas menerima keputusan agihan kerusi Parlimen di Semenanjung yang paling sedikit.

Presiden AMANAH, Mohamad Sabu yakin akan memenangi kesemua 27 kerusi Parlimen yang diperuntukkan kepada parti berkenaan pada Pilihan Raya Umum ke-14 (PRU-14) nanti.

“InsyaAllah, kita akan menang semua (kerusi),” jawabnya ringkas sejurus turun dari pentas utama selepas selesai sidang media.

Sementara itu, Pengarah Komunikasi AMANAH, Khalid Samad pula memberitahu parti berusia dua tahun tersebut berjaya memperoleh kerusi Parlimen yang sebelum ini dituntut.

“Kita dapat kebanyakan kerusi (Parlimen) yang kita mahu. Dan kerusi yang AMANAH dapat adalah kerusi yang berpotensi tinggi boleh menang,” katanya.

Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam berkenaan menafikan kononnnya AMANAH terpinggir dalam proses rundingan agihan kerusi dengan tiga sekutunya yang lain.

Sebaliknya, beliau berpendapat keputusan tidak semestinya menyaksikan kerusi yang banyak ditandingi akan mampu dimenangi.

“Daripada jumlah kerusi yang banyak, belum tentu boleh menang. AMANAH dapat kerusi yang terbaik,” tegas Khalid lagi.

Perutusan yang diberi nama ‘Muafakat Pakatan Harapan’ itu menyaksikan Bersatu membolot paling banyak kerusi Parlimen di Semenanjung iaitu 52 daripada 165 kerusi dan diikuti PKR sebanyak 51 kerusi.

Sementara itu, DAP diperuntukkan 35 kerusi manakala AMANAH hanya memperoleh 27 kerusi.

Tawar-menawar 

Ditanya tentang peranan tawar-menawar AMANAH bersama rakan Pakatan Harapan, Ketua Pemuda AMANAH Nasional, Sany Hamzan pula berpendapat partinya tidak hilang kuasa rundingan tersebut.

“Kita tidak hilang kuasa tawar menawar. Soal pembahagian kerusi ini bergantung pada kekuatan parti. Kita tahu PRU-14 ini, undi Melayu adalah undi penentu.

“Jadi, sudah tentu kita memberi peluang yang agak luas kepada Bersatu sebab kita tahu Bersatu ditubuhkan berteraskan Melayu.

“Oleh itu, sudah tentu Bersatu boleh menggantikan tempat Umno-BN untuk menarik sokongan pengundi Melayu khususnya yang tinggal di luar bandar,” jelasnya.

Sany turut menyifatkan rundingan pembahagian kerusi di peringkat Dewan Undangan Negeri (Dun) dijangka akan memberi lebih ruang kepada AMANAH.

“Ada satu lagi perbincangan kerusi di peringkat Dun. Saya difahamkan di sinilah AMANAH akan memainkan peranan sangat penting berdasarkan kekuatan jentera (pilihan raya) kita di peringkat akar umbi.

“Selama dua tahun ini, AMANAH bekerja kuat dan kekukuhan Pakatan Harapan banyak digerakkan AMANAH. Peranan AMANAH terus di akar umbi sekali gus membantu kemenangan calon Pakatan Harapan di peringkat Parlimen,” jelasnya lagi.

Dr. Mahathir kembangkan hidung Amanah

Yang menjayakan agihan kerusi PH adalah AMANAH, kata Tun M
MALAYSIA DATELINE  -  January 7, 2018 7:16 pm
Pengerusi Pakatan Harapan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad berkata, yang menjayakan agihan kerusi PH hari ini adalah AMANAH.

Beliau berkata demikian dalam ucapan beliau di Konvensyen Pakatan Harapan yang diadakan di IDCC Shah Alam hari ini.

Semalam dalam satu rundingan yang diadakan, pemimpin kanan Pakatan Harapan (PH) telah mencapai kata sepakat berhubung pembahagian kerusi Parlimen untuk ditandingi dalam Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-14 (PRU14) nanti untuk Semenanjung Malaysia.

Persetujuan yang dicapai menetapkan PKR akan bertanding 51 kerusi, Bersatu 52, DAP 35 dan AMANAH 27. Jumlah kerusi Parlimen untuk dipertandingkan di Semenanjung Malaysia ialah 165.

Butiran keputusan kata sepakat berkenaan kemudian telah diumumkan oleh Ketua Sekretariat PH, Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah melalui perisytiharan Muafakat Pakatan Harapan pada Konvensyen PH itu hari ini.

Turut diumumkan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad telah dinamakan sebagai calon Perdana Menteri (PM) PH sekiranya PH berjaya mengambil alih Putrajaya dan Presiden PKR Dr Wan Azizah Wan pula diumumkan sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri (TPM).

Donald Trump - Some Facts

Sunday, January 7, 2018

Sections of the American mainstream media is on a witch hunt to take down President Donald Trump. Talk show hosts, late night commentators and others are leading the charge as well.

The latest is a book Fire And Fury written by a Michael Wolff (two fs) that says  Trump is insane, mentally unstable, psychologically disturbed, deranged etc to hold the office of the US President.

This book is coming out AFTER an almost year long quite ridiculous effort to prove that Donald Trump is a Russian agent. To be more exact - an agent of Vladimir Putin - who is of course another Darth Invader bad boy of the pro-blood-shedding Western death cults.

Anyway here are some simple Sunday morning facts about Donald Trump that may be useful.

Donald Trump finished high school circa 1964 as a military cadet at the New York Military Academy. 

Here is a picture of Trump at the military academy.  He is 2nd from the left.
After that in 1968 Donald Trump graduated from the super Ivy League Wharton School of Finance at the University of Pennsylvania. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics. 
Donald graduating from Wharton 1968. Here with his multi-millionaire father

Other people who have graduated from the same Wharton School of Finance include Elon Musk, Mortimer Zuckerman, Additya Mittal, Anil Ambani and one fatty boy char kway teow seller from Penang.  Some say Warren Buffet is also a graduate of the Wharton School.
Elon Musk : Tech genius, entrepreneur extraordinaire and billionaire
Billionaire Mortimer Zuckerman : Owns FIVE MILLION square feet of office buildings,  owns US News and World Report and was a Harvard professor.
Aditya Mittal, son of billionaire Lakshmi Mittal and heir to the Mittal Steel empire, the largest steel producer in the world.
Anil Ambani - Chairman of the Reliance Group, billionaire industrialist

Trump graduated from the Ivy League Wharton School,  the alma mater of some of the greatest industrialists, businessmen and billionaires in the world.  These are facts.

Donald Trump then went ahead to build his business empire.  The less informed identify Trump as a TV personality but that was just Trump's pre-planning to position himself for his run for the presidency. He wanted to become a household name first.

Trump's greatest success is his multi-billion dollar business empire. Trump says he has made over US$8 billion from his business. And he is still making more money. These are facts.  That is indeed a clever businessman. 

In politics, Trump has no experience. Hence his rookie outing as a presidential candidate had to be a cleverly thought and well prepared move. He has won the presidency as the 45th president of the United States, with no previous record in politics, defeating not just 'deep state'candidates but also the mega media machinery that was against him. This is another humongous achievement. These are facts.

Within the first 12 months of being in office, Trump has become the first and most decisive US President yet to cut off US$2.0 billion military aid to Pakistan. These are facts.  

This means US$2 Billion less human blood shed, killing and destruction in Pakistan and elsewhere where Pakistan sends its terrorists.  Trump is now pondering  cutting more aid to Pakistan.

In my view, Trumps greatest achievement thus far is the revamping of the US tax regime, particularly cutting corporate taxes from a whopping 35% down to a more sensible 20%.  

This will free up TRILLIONS of dollars for American companies - to reinvest, to expand production, to employ more workers, to pay dividends to shareholders, to buy yachts, to buy Rolls Royces etc.  Their country is about to take off.  

Since Donald Trump became President less than 12 months ago, the US economy is taking off. Wall Street has gone skyrockets. The Dow Jones has breached 25,000 for the first time. When I lived in the US in the mid 80s, the Dow was at around 1400.

Here is the Dow Jones chart from March 2017 until 5th January, 2018.
When Donald Trump became president, the Dow Jones was around 20,000. Now it has reached 25,295. That is an explosion of over 26 % in under 12 months !!

The NYSE (where the Dow Jones is computed) now has a market capitalisation of almost US$20 TRILLION !!

In 12 months of Trump's presidency the NYSE has added ALMOST US$5 TRILLION to their wealth !!

All these are facts.  

It does not sound very insane or deranged or psychologically disturbed.

Mahathir has apologised, let’s rebuild Malaysia now

Mariam Mokhtar - January 4, 2018
When you do wrong, you apologise. This is what former prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, has done. It takes a lot of courage for a person to humble himself and say the three magic words, “I am sorry.”

He could have done this ages ago, but at this stage, it is irrelevant. Malaysia is suffering and the ordinary man in the street fares the worst. Mahathir has apologised for the deeds he committed while in politics, and we should move on to rebuild Malaysia.

Usually, a person who apologises is seen as magnanimous, but what if the people to whom the apology is directed demand more than a mere apology?

Like it or not, each and every one of us has been affected by Mahathir’s policies in one way or another. You could say, that we are all Mahathir’s children, some treated more preferentially than others. Those who could not bear his authoritarian ways, simply left or rebelled. His favourites excelled.

Mahathir became involved in politics in the 1940s but stamped his mark on Umno, twenty years later. He could never see eye to eye with Tunku Abdul Rahman and an open letter in 1969 purportedly coming from Mahathir, which demanded Tunku’s resignation, prompted Malaysia’s first PM to expel him from the party.

Mahathir was a good teacher. He told us to jump and we asked, “How high?” We obeyed him without question.

His book, “The Malay Dilemma”, gave the Malays a new sense of identity and an ego to match. He dared to defy the white masters, and this increased his stature in the eyes of the Malays. One of his students is the current PM, whose father plucked him from the political wilderness and made him a senator in 1972. The rest is history.

Today, Malaysia reaps what Mahathir has sown. We marvel at the skyscrapers, in the Mahathir-tropolis, but it was built at great cost. Malays who were dirt poor, were lifted out of poverty. He created a massive Malay middle-class, who enjoyed many perks and opportunities previously denied them.

The only problem was that many people lived in a moral vacuum. Greed and selfishness triumphed, just like Mahathir’s Petronas twin-towers. Today, he must be aware that he created a monster. He has admitted that removing Najib Abdul Razak is not enough and that Umno has to go.

Before, struggling non-Malays did not hesitate to settle and work abroad, whilst the Malays prevaricated about change. This is no longer true. Malays are now part of the brain drain.

The wealthy non-Malays are also part of the problem. They do not know the suffering of their poorer cousins. They keep their noses clean, and avoid upsetting the ruling party, for obvious reasons.

Mahathir has apologised, but that is not enough for some people. Nothing in this world is perfect. No marriage, spouse, house, car, holiday or medical treatment is perfect. We make the best of what we have.

Mahathir’s critics accuse the opposition of being fragmented. They claim that Mahathir is only interested in continuing his legacy. They refuse to accept a woman PM. They refuse to accept a non-Malay PM. They refuse to use Mahathir and tap his skills to overthrow the present government. They do not offer an alternative solution, or alternative candidates, and yet many of them would rather spoil their votes in GE14.

Talk about cutting off their noses, to spite their faces.

If you really want change, go and vote, do not spoil your vote. If you do that, you will give Umno another five years of rule. In those five years, Malaysia may deteriorate to a state that would be unrecognisable to the rakyat of Malaysia, today.

Isu letak jawatan: Ini jawapan Mahfuz...

Diminta letak jawatan ini jawapan Mahfuz...
MUHAMMAD SHAMSUL  ABD GHANI  -  2 JANUARI 2018
Mahfuz Omar

SHAH ALAM - Ahli Parlimen Pokok Sena, Datuk Mahfuz Omar mendedahkan bahawa beliau mengambil maklum sebarang 'serangan' ke atasnya selepas beliau keluar daripada Pas.

Ini termasuklah kenyataan daripada pemimpin Pas yang meminta agar beliau melepaskan jawatan sebagai Ahli Parlimen Pokok Sena.

Katanya, beliau hanya tersenyum tatkala mengetahui mengenai perkhabaran tersebut.

"Saya tunggu lagi apa orang nak kata, biar diorang keluar habis.

"Saya senyum sahaja baca surat khabar hari-hari," katanya kepada Sinar Online.

Dalam pada itu, mengulangi kenyataan beliau semalam, Mahfuz berkata beliau akan mengulas semua isu berkaitan pengundurannya daripada Pas dalam masa lima hari daripada sekarang.

"Seminggu selepas ini saya akan isytiharkan semua perkara," katanya lagi.

Sinar Harian hari ini melaporkan kenyataan Setiausaha Agung Pas, Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan yang menyarankan agar Mahfuz melepaskan jawatan selaku Ahli Parlimen  selepas menghantar surat pemberhentian menjadi ahli Pas kelmarin kerana dibimbangi pendapatannya sebagai wakil rakyat adalah haram.

Takiyuddin berkata, ini memandangkan bekas Naib Presiden Pas itu masih terikat dengan baiah atau lafaz sumpah sebagai calon Pas.

Malah menurutnya, jika Mahfuz melanggar baiah itu, beliau juga berdepan laknat ALLAH SWT dan seluruh umat Islam.

[ARTIKEL BERKAITAN:Mahfuz perlu letak jawatan, dikhuatiri gaji haram ]

Gunakan modal agama untuk menegakkan kebatilan

PAS DAN AGAMA

Agama bukan senjata untuk disandiwarakan, bukan untuk dipolitikkan, bukan untuk digunakan untuk kepentingan pemimpin agama atau politik, dan lebih-lebih lagi bukan untuk orang agama sendiri gunakannya sebagai senjata politik demi kepentingan mereka.

Hari ini jelas pemimpin-pemimpin PAS secaran terang-terangan menggunakan modal agama untuk menegakkan kebatilan.

Masih segar di ingatan kita, ucapan dari Presiden PAS Hadi Awang sewaktu kempen PRU 13 “... PAS mendokong fikrah yang jelas, bahawa kerjasama bersama (Pakatan Rakyat pada waktu itu)adalah dibina dengan berpegang kepada dasar bantu-membantu dalam menegakkan keadilan dan menentang kezaliman.”

Namun hari ini Hadi Awang berkata “...bahawa parti yang diterajuinya itu bersedia untuk menjadi pendokong kuat kepada Umno sekiranya parti tonggak BN itu mentadbir negara dengan ikhlas serta kembali kepada ajaran Islam.”

Bagaimana seseorang yang kuat  agamanya mampu berubah sekelip mata dengan menyatakan sokongan secara terbuka?

Jika ingin mentadbir negara ini dengan adil dan saksama rujuk dan khatamkan Piagam Madinah. Kembalilah pada ajaran Rasulullah (saw) dan bukannya perjuangan sesat yang membolehkan baiah sehingga menceraikan isteri jika tidak sehaluan dengan prinsip parti.

Lihat bagaimana Rasullullah (saw) memimpin,

Masyarakat Islam, Yahudi dan Nasrani yang mendiami bumi Madinah disatukan melalui piagam yang cukup penting dengan situasi dan keperluan mereka iaitu Piagam Madinah yang menghendaki setiap individu menjadikan keamanan dan kesejahteraan negara sebagai keutamaan.

Setiap anggota masyarakat tidak kira agama, bangsa mahupun kaum haruslah sentiasa menjadikan kestabilan dan keamanan negara sebagai satu keutamaan dalam kehidupan bermasyarakat.

Inilah yang menjadi antara inti pati kandungan Piagam Madinah yang digariskan oleh Rasulullah (saw).

Report: Will Anwar factor force Najib’s hand on GE14 date?

January 1, 2018
FMT Reporters
PETALING JAYA: Will Prime Minister Najib Razak’s hand in calling for the next general election be forced (GE14) by the likelihood of Anwar Ibrahim being released as early as April?

That is the argument posited by Ucanews when commenting on speculation that GE14 will be held in March or April.

The Bangkok-based news portal said Najib is likely to call for a general election after the Chinese New Year to capitalise on using the festive celebration to make inroads into regaining some of the votes from the second biggest ethnic group in the country.

The first day of Chinese New Year falls on Feb 16 and the festival ends 14 days later with Chap Goh Meh on March 2.

It was previously reported that Anwar might be released as early as April, though no reasons were given as to why this is so.

On Nov 6 last year, Anwar’s daughter, and Lembah Pantai MP, Nurul Izzah, had been quoted as saying that the family were hopeful that the former opposition leader would be out of the Sungei Buloh prison a month or two before his expected June 2018 release date.

Anwar was jailed for five years in February 2015 after being convicted of sodomy.
However, he could be released early as prisoners are usually given a one-third reduction on their jail term for good behaviour. He has so far served 35 months out of his 60-month sentence.

Though the former deputy prime minister would still be ineligible from standing as a candidate due to his conviction, the government is aware of his drawing power and eloquence.

Najib may also be advised on the timing based on the expected positive mood in the financial markets during the Lunar New Year festive period, according to Ucanews.

In 2013, Najib waited till the last possible month before Parliament would automatically dissolve, and elections would need to be called. He made the announcement on the dissolution of Parliament on April 3, and the general election was held on May 5.

This time around, he has until June 24, which is when the term of the current Parliament lapses. The polls must then be called within two months, but the prime minister has the prerogative to dissolve Parliament earlier.

The Federal Constitution states that a general election needs to be called when Parliament is dissolved or it reaches a maximum term of five years. The current Parliament kicked off its term on June 24, 2013.

Teen abducted by man posing as cop found safe

Bernama - December 29, 2017
Nur Syaminn

KUANTAN: A 16-year-old teenager, who was allegedly abducted by a man impersonating a policeman yesterday, was found safe in Raub today.

Raub district police chief Supt Wan Mohd Zahari Wan Busu said Nur Syaminn Nabila Mohd Shapawi was found at 11.05am at a bus station after she contacted her family members and informed them that she was in town.

“The victim claimed to have boarded the bus from Kuala Lumpur to Raub and was immediately picked up at the bus station and taken to Raub Hospital and Kuala Lipis for an examination,” he said when contacted here.

Wan Mohd Zahari said police were still trying to locate the suspect who pretended to be a police sergeant who was recently posted to the Sungai Ruan police station, when he abducted the victim.

The dark-skinned, thin suspect, who introduced himself as Faiz, was believed to have tricked the victim’s mother by saying he needed the girl’s help to take his newly-purchased motorcycle from a shop in Sungai Ruan to his house, which was in the vicinity. The last she saw was her daughter leaving in the suspect’s car.

“We hope the public will not speculate or make assumptions regarding the case as investigations are ongoing,” he said.

He said the case was being investigated under Section 363 and Section 170 of the Penal Code for abduction and impersonating a public servant.

BREAKING RUMOUR : Major component to PULL OUT of BN . . .

Friday, December 29, 2017
BREAKING RUMOUR : MAJOR COMPONENT TO PULL OUT OF BN . . .

Had a pow wow with some Bersatu and DAP folks this morning. Tomorrow is Bersatu's General Assembly. 

The General Assembly starts at 8:00 AM at Aras 7, Ideal Convention Centre Shah Alam, IDCC Mall,  Jalan Pahat  L 15/L, Seksyen 15, Shah Alam. 

The BN is over folks. They are dead. There is serious doubt and infighting going on inside UMNO.  Super Moron's  gatekeepers have built a solid wall around the him. He is totally cut off from reality.   He does not even know whether he is coming or going. The smart beggars in the entourage are singing his praises to the sky and lining their own pockets.

Amidst all this I just heard something else. A major component party of the BN will announce a pullout from the BN. The time of the announcement has been suggested but I do not wish to reveal it here. Or by any private email either. Sorry. 

Once they make the announcement it is game over for the BN. 

More importantly, much much more importantly it is also a very clever move because it will put a cap on the "power sharing"  that must fall into place with a Pakatan Harapan government.  Meaning there will NOT be confusion, chaos or any one party holding an overwhelming majority in a Pakatan government. It will add significant "stability" to Pakatan Harapan.  So dont worry folks. 

Just keep this in mind :  "Zero Votes For The BN"

PAS AT ITS MOST BACKWARD UNDER HADI: BUT WHY IS HADI PERSONALLY KILLING OFF PAS’ CHANCES IN GE14 – WHAT IS HIS ULTERIOR MOTIVE?

Malaysia Chronicle | December 28, 2017
PAS has always been the party that represents those who cannot think. It does not matter that some of them may have university degrees. The vast majority of them just cannot think. 

And sadly, all of them are not relevant.

Let me repeat my ‘sucked up by aliens theory’. If a space ship came out of the sky and sucked up all the PAS members, there will be absolutely no negative effect on the world. In fact places like Kelantan will certainly become better if there was no PAS.

Here is that really dumb statement by Hadi:

http://www.themalaysianinsight.com/s/29366/Hadi said only Muslims will occupy decision-making roles in PAS cabinet

statement by Hadi target most conservative sections of Muslim

PAS killing whatever chances of attracting non-Muslim support.negate strategy of fielding non-Muslim candidates.

PAS’ way of convincing Malay it is champion of Islamic issues

PAS ultra-conservative in administration.

According to PAS, head of state, cabinet must be Islamic

Muslims policymakers

Non-Muslims only experts and managers.

PAS fielding non-Muslim candidates in 14th general election.

(Hadi says) if you vote PAS, whole cabinet Malay
if you vote BN, cabinet diverse

Hadi chasing away non-Muslim votes for PAS

party believes (non-Muslims) are inferior…

that they not part of government

My comments I dont know if this moron was born stupid or if he was dropped on his head. 

There is an election around the corner. In Malaysia every constituency has significant non muslim minorities.  

The only places where the non Muslims do not really matter are Kelantan and maybe Terengganu. Obviousoly Hadi wants to keep the two states in the stone age.

When pas-pis-pus mursyidul am was struck by heart problems he went to the US for treatment.  Obviously the kafir health and medical policies there have created a more Islamic system of health care.

In Malaysia, the same mursyidul am of pas-pis-pus was a practitioner of ‘perubatan jin dan jembalang’.  Using jin to chase away the jembalang. But the jins were not able to heal him. The kafir doctors had treated him successfully before.

These people are not relevant. They are stupid. Those Malays who support them are also not relevant for their own good. It is a waste of time even talking about them. They are all just stupid.

Perak cops to probe widow’s report over husband’s death

 | December 21, 2017
Perak CID chief Gan Tian Kee says the Tapah police has opened a police enquiry paper (PEP) on the matter.
IPOH: Perak police will conduct an investigation into a police report lodged by a woman claiming that her husband was shot dead by police personnel in May.
Perak CID chief Gan Tian Kee said Tapah district police headquarters (IPD) had opened a police enquiry paper (PEP) on the matter and a full report would be submitted to the deputy public prosecutor for further action.
“The police view seriously the complainant’s claim and a detailed investigation will be conducted before action is taken. We will also get evidence from her,” he said in a statement here, today.
Gan said the widow, R. Vaijentimala, lodged a police report at Ipoh IPD yesterday.
“The woman claimed that her husband, M. Marimuthu left the house in a Toyota Hilux for the market in Pengkalan here, about 7am, on May 24 and did not return home.”

He said the next day, the woman was shocked after finding out that her husband had been shot dead by police in Air Kuning, Tapah.
Yesterday, the 41-year old demanded an investigation be carried out on those involved in killing her husband.
On May 24, Perak police chief Hasnan Hassan had revealed that police shot dead a 40-year-old, who they believed to be the mastermind of Geng Pam and 04.
The gangs were active in Muallim, Tapah and Manjung.
He said a shootout had taken place and the suspect took two bullets in the chest and died at the scene.

Akan ada kerajaan baru: Keyakinan HARAPAN berdasarkan apa?

Mengapa HARAPAN yakin akan ada k’jaan baru
Disember 16, 2017
Oleh Liew Chin Tong

Malaysia akan mempunyai kerajaan baru sekiranya Umno kalah 40 kerusi di Semenanjung Malaysia kepada Pakatan Harapan (HARAPAN).

Jika 50 peratus pengundi Melayu memilih HARAPAN, pakatan pembangkang malah akan menubuhkan kerajaan dengan dua per tiga majoriti. Ini adalah realiti.

Justeru, saya terkejut dengan hakikat bahawa sesetengah penganalisis politik dan ahli politik enggan memahami dinamik pilihan raya dan demografik berkenaan faktor yang akan menentukan keputusan pilihan raya umum (PRU) akan datang.

Klise politik dan realiti

Masalah paling besar di kalangan yang kononnya cerdik pandai ini adalah mereka suka mengulangi klise yang mereka sendiri tidak faham.

Sesetengah mereka tidak anggap pengundi Melayu akan menukar undi secara beramai-ramai.

Penilaian mereka ini menggunakan hujah bahawa meskipun pengundi Melayu mengundi pembangkang sebelum ini, tiada pertukaran undi yang ketara di kalangan pengundi Melayu yang tetap mengundi Barisan Nasional dalam dua pilihan raya umum yang lalu.

Dengan itu, mereka cuba menjustifikasikan teori mereka. Mereka melihat Sabah dan Sarawak sebagai agen perubahan dan bukannya Semenanjung.
Menurut perkiraan saya pula, perubahan di Sarawak tidak ketara kerana gambaran yang diberikan kerajaan Sarawak yang seolah-olah mengamalkan politik pro-autonomi, selain keadaan muka bumi negeri itu.

Sementara Sabah pula mempunyai situasi yang menarik. Pada PRU 2013, pembangkang cuma menang 3 kerusi parlimen. BN menang beberapa kerusi dengan kurang daripada 50 peratus undi popular yang disebabkan oleh pertembungan lebih daripada dua penjuru.

Kini dengan kehadiran Datuk Seri Shafie Apdal sebagai pemimpin pembangkang baru di pantai timur, serta mendapat sokongan dari kalangan Kadazan-Dusun-Murut, pembangkang sebenarnya mampu menang sehingga 10 kerusi parlimen.

Bagaimanapun, pertarungan utama masih lagi di Semenanjung.

Pertarungan rebut Semenanjung

Dalam PRU lalu, Umno menang 88 kerusi parlimen seluruh negara. Empat belas daripada jumlah itu adalah di Sabah dan satu di Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan.

Daripada 73 kerusi di Semenanjung, kira-kira 30 daripada jumlah itu merupakan kawasan parlimen yang sangat kecil, selalunya sama saiz dengan jumlah peneroka Felda, selain terletak di kawasan pedalaman.
Meskipun dengan pertukaran undi yang besar di kalangan pengundi Melayu, tidak mudah Pakatan Harapan memenangi kerusi-kerusi ini.

Lebih 40 kerusi yang lain adalah kerusi campuran dengan majoriti Melayu yang mempunyai jumlah pengundi bukan Melayu yang agak besar menetap di kawasan itu. Kebanyakan kerusi ini terletak di kawasan separa bandar di mana sejumlah besar generasi mudanya tinggal di Kuala Lumpur dan kawasan metropolitan lain.

Pada PRU 2013, Pakatan Rakyat memenangi 80 daripada 165 kerusi. Ketika ini, PAS memegang 14 kerusi yang tidak lagi boleh dianggap kerusi HARAPAN. DAP pula kalah di Teluk Intan pada pilihan raya kecil pada 2014.

Ketika ini, HARAPAN memperoleh parlimen Pagoh melalui penyertaan Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin dalam barisan pembangkang. Wakil HARAPAN keseluruhannya menyandang 66 kerusi di Semenanjung.

Cabaran pilihan raya untuk HARAPAN adalah untuk memenangi 100 daripada 165 kerusi di Semenanjung.
Sekiranya berjaya dicapai, ia bererti pertukaran undi yang besar di kalangan pengundi Melayu yang juga bereti pemilihan lebih ramai ahli parlimen Melayu berbanding bukan Melayu.
Kedua-dua situasi ini penting bagi berdepan cabaran selepas pilihan raya dalam penubuhan kerajaan yang stabil oleh HARAPAN.

Dengan kemenangan HARAPAN ke atas 100 atau lebih kerusi di Semenanjung, dengan 15 hingga 20 kerusi tambahan dikongsi bersama HARAPAN dan parti sekutu di Sabah dan Sarawak, ia dapat menjamin sebuah kerajaan baru ditubuhkan.

Mampukah HARAPAN menangi 100 kerusi di Semenanjung?

Meskipun tanpa mempertimbangkan kerusi di Kelantan dan Terengganu, sudah ada sekurang-kurangnya 40 kerusi yang dimenangi BN dengan majoriti kecil di pantai barat Semenanjung yang boleh dimenangi HARAPAN. (Demi menjaga kepentingan strategi, saya tidak akan namakan kerusi-kerusi ini, namun pembaca boleh membuat kajian sendiri untuk mengetahui kerusi-kerusi ini.)

Kelompok 1 – Perlis/Kedah - 10
Kelompok 2 – Pulau Pinang/Perak Utara - 7
Kelompok 3 – Selangor Utara/Perak Selatan - 8
Kelompok 4 – Muar (Johor) - 5
Kelompok 5 – Johor Selatan - 6
Kelompok 6 - Pahang - 4

Kerusi di Perlis dan Kedah kebanyakannya adalah kerusi dengan majoriti besar Melayu. Dengan faktor Mahathir, Kedah akan mempunyai dinamiknya sendiri.

Kerusi marginal BN di pantai barat yang selebihnya adalah kebanyakannya mempunyai maksimum 65 peratus pengundi Melayu, yang bererti ia merangkumi jumlah pengundi bukan Melayu yang agak besar. Bagi kerusi pantai barat, faktor PAS boleh diabaikan.

Pertembungan tiga penjuru rugikan Umno

Saya sebelum ini berhujah bahawa Umno akan mendapati strategi pertembungan tiga penjuru akan menutup peluang Umno berbanding HARAPAN untuk menang di kerusi marginal.
Di kerusi campuran dengan majoriti Melayu, pengundi bukan Melayu lebih cenderung mengundi calon HARAPAN berbanding Umno atau PAS.

Sekiranya sentimen antikerajaan di kalangan pengundi Melayu ketika ini bertahan, sesetengah penyokong Umno dan PAS pada PRU 2013 akan turut mengundi HARAPAN.
Umno pula memerlukan penyokong setia Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang untuk mengundi calon Umno berbanding memberikan undi kepada PAS di kerusi pantai barat yang mana PAS tidak mempunyai peluang untuk menang.

Tidak mengejutkan sekiranya dalam masa terdekat ini Umno yang akan mengarahkan agar strategi tiga penjuru tidak digunakan. Perdebatan tentang tiga penjuru ketika ini, termasuk di kalangan penyokong pembangkang, sebenarnya hanya membuang masa.

Timbalan Perdana Menteri yang juga merupakan Timbalan Presiden Umno Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi dan Menteri Kebudayaan dan Pelancongan Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz masing-masing memberi amaran secara terbuka berkenaan strategi tiga penjuru yang mungkin merugikan Umno.

Difahami, kerusi Bagan Datok (kerusi Zahid) dan Padang Rengas (kerusi Nazri) merupakan kawasan pantai barat seumpamanya yang saya gambarkan di atas.
Kejutan lain buat Umno adalah apabila Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak mengadakan mesyuarat dengan pemimpin Umno Kelantan baru-baru ini di kediaman Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah.

Dalam mesyuarat itu, Najib diberitahu bahawa Umno Kelantan tidak berhasrat bertembung dengan PAS di setiap kerusi. Keengganan pemimpin peringkat negeri Umno untuk bekerjasama dengan PAS telah membantutkan strategi rapuh pertembungan tiga penjuru Najib.

Medan pertempuran separa bandar

Memandangkan HARAPAN (dan begitu juga sebelum ini Pakatan Rakyat) sebelum ini lebih berpengaruh di kawasan bandar, memahami jiwa pengundi separa bandar adalah penting bagi menjamin kemenangan pembangkang.

HARAPAN perlu mencipta pakatan pembangkang mesra rakyat yang berpotensi menang yang mampu menarik sekurang-kurangnya separuh daripada pengundi Melayu dan melonjakkan sokongan yang besar daripada bukan Melayu.
Saya tidak pernah kata ia kerja mudah. Apa yang saya kata adalah Umno dan BN kini sangat rapuh di kawasan separa bandar di pantai barat, iaitu kerusi campuran dengan majoriti Melayu yang dimenangi BN dengan majoriti tipis pada PRU 2013.

Dari satu sisi, kawasan-kawasan ini ibarat “Rust Belt” pembangkang, iaitu kawasan yang dulunya mempunyai industri yang pesat membangun namun kini terjejas akibat ekonomi.

Jika Umno kalah lebih kurang 40 kerusi ini dengan pertukaran undi yang memihak kepada HARAPAN, semestinya ia akan melahirkan sebuah kerajaan baru.
