How to win a Buy-Election?

April 26, 2010

Firstly, a very big thank you to all Pakatan Rakyat’s machinery on the ground for all their hard and dedicated work in Hulu Selangor, syabas to all of you and we are proud of you guys.

Secondly, “tahniah” to the People of Hulu Selangor for voting in a “phantom voter” of Sg Siput to our Parliament. I sincerely hope if the “new MP” can clarify this in his first appearance in Parliament, which i bet he won’t. Well, like he have promised, he will have to answer all those questions which he have pushed aside but will answer only after the buy-election. let wait and hear from him.

Lastly,  if any other opponents who want to win a buy-election, please be reminded and follow the fine examples shown by the APNO’s PM “leadership” like below.

The first incident was his blatant disregard of the Election Offences Act against bribery when he tried to induce the 1,500 voters of Rasa to vote for the BN candidate by announcing the approval of RM3 million for rebuilding Rasa Chinese Primary School but with one big condition.

Najib publicly declared: “If we win this by-election, you can come to Kuala Lumpur the next day to look for me. I will write a personal letter to approve the money and it will be transferred to the school board’s account. If we lose, don’t have to come.”

The second incident was during his visit to Kampong Hassan where he promised the Chinese-majority voters in the area that the Barisan Nasional government would build 200 low-cost housing for them if the BN candidate wins the by-election.

The third incident : PM 1 Malaysia APCO promised the Felda settlers, hari ini kasi sahaja RM1000.00 Cash dan Bank draf RM49,000.00 kalau BN menang. So let BN win dan esok dapat duit RM 49,000.00.

Well, it’s that easy to win a Buy-Election and the MACC guys are nowhere to be found and the police will not even dare to make a report of their own in order to start an investigation.

What would have happened if Anwar or Kit Siang or Guan Eng were to offer this?

Remember how many police reports were make when Lim Guan Eng gives out RM100 to appreciate the “warga emas” in Penang?

Remember MB Khalid was hauled up by MACC over the 46 cows he donated for “Hari Raya Korban” in Shah Alam?

Well, i can only hope the Felda settlers will spend their money wisely and hope they will last until the next GE so that they don’t have to bother the PR’s Government of Selangor for the time being.

“Kamu Cina, Ini Tempat Melayu” – 1Malay-Sial

April 23, 2010

Ong Vic Kee, Merdeka Review

“Kamu orang Cina, sini tempat Melayu,” herdik seorang lelaki di bilik gerakan Barisan Nasional terhadap dua orang wartawan perempuan di Kampung Sungai Buaya, pagi ini. Malah, lelaki tersebut menuduh wartawan yang sedang bekerja di bilik gerakan itu sebagai “pengintip dari pihak musuh”.

Kejadian ini berlaku apabila wartawan MerdekaReview membuat liputan di Kampung Sungai Buaya bersama seorang lagi wartawan dari Laksou (satu media internet bahasa Cina).  Kedua-dua orang wartawan perempuan keturunan Cina ini singgah di bilik gerakan BN untuk menyiapkan kerja, selepas mendapat kebenaran daripada petugas bilik gerakan BN.

Pada mulanya, beberapa orang petugas yang peramah menyediakan meja untuk wartawan, setelah mengenalpasti identiti mereka.  Namun, pada masa kedua-dua orang wartawan mulakan kerja mereka, seorang lelaki berketurunan Melayu memasuki bilik gerakan itu secara tiba-tiba.

Beliau dan pengikutnya bertanya kepada wartawan, siapakah dan dari manakah mereka datang?  Wartawan tersebut telah memaklumkan secara lisan identiti mereka, malah wartawanLaksou telah menunjukkan kadnya, di samping menyatakan tujuan mereka berada di situ.

Namun, lelaki yang disyaki sebagai ketua bilik gerakan tersebut memarahi wartawan kerana tidak menyatakan identiti dan mendapatkan kebenarannya terlebih dahulu untuk masuk ke bilik gerakan.  Bagaimanapun, lelaki tersebut juga tidak menyatakan identitinya.

Wow, is this for real? 1Malaysia Is Real or 1Malaysia Israel?

I wonder how much did they spend with this 1Malaysia slogan?

Home Minister Begging for Another Chance?

April 23, 2010

Oh my GOD, is this guy joking? or is he drunk to beg us to give him or BN a chance again this time?…..or am i dreaming?

Give BN a chance at redemption, says Hisham

Give Barisan Nasional a chance to redeem itself, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein told the people of Hulu Selangor.

“I know Barisan has made mistakes before. You have already punished us by not giving us support in the last general election.”

“But now Barisan, under Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, is listening to the people’s woes.”

“Give us time to prove that we have learnt from our past mistakes and ensure that the 1Malaysia vision is a success,” he told cheering villagers during his visit to Kampung Baru Air Panas in Kerling near here Thursday.

Hishammuddin said he was touched by the local community’s warm response, adding that his officers were on hand to help resolve the problems.

He also told those present that allocations had been approved and work had started to resurface the roads in the village and plans were underway to upgrade its hall as requested by villagers.

“This shows that the Government under Najib does not make false promises but delivers on what we promise,” said Hishammuddin, while acknowledging that there were still problems that needed to be addressed at the grassroots level. — The Star

well, why don’t YOU give US a chance? or give Pakatan Rakyat a chance to proof they can manage this Country better?

Under Najis and YOU……

– The cow heads rule in Shah Alam

– Churches were burned.

– Jet engines were missing.

– the Indians were here to beg.

– the Chinese were here to sell their bodies.

– the Israelis have landed at Bukit Aman.

– the non-malays or rather non-APNO are 2nd class citizen.

well, we can add on a longer list if you want but please explain or give us a very good reason why you beg for another chance and for how long? another 50 years or so?

Korek, korek, korek – YB Tony

April 20, 2010

Parliamentarian Tony Pua today revealed further cases of highly questionable government contracts published on the newly-launched MyProcurement portal.

He called on the authorities to investigate four contracts which were awarded by the Education Ministry, the Royal Malaysian Police and the Defence Ministry.

azlan

It turned out that the figure as reported in the website was a mistake and has since been corrected to RM7.8 million.

However, a check on Rafa Sepakat Sdn Bhd – the company awarded the project – shows that it was thebeneficiary of RM53.4 million worth of contracts in the last six months.


More so, the company was set up less than three years ago with the key owner not even 23.

“The company was only established at the end of December 2007, and as at Dec 3, 2008 it had no revenue in its books,” decried Pua.

He said the main shareholder and director of the company, Abdul Rahman Abdul Ghani, will turn 23 only this month.

Pua also claimed that most of the contracts to supply food to 76 boarding schools in Pahang, awarded by the Education Ministry, were toindividuals and not companies.

The contracts for cooked food reached a total of RM123.5 million, with the amounts ranging from RM420,000 to RM3.91 million each.

“I do not know that there’s such a big difference in the size of our schools,” he quipped at the large gap in contract prices and called for greater scrutiny.

He also highlighted that one of the contract recipients, Rafidah Halib, was a Wanita Umno leader in the Marandivision.

“She was awarded a RM1.4 million contract to supply food to SMK Maran,” Pua said.

Pua also zeroed in on a RM82.8 million contract awarded by the Defence Ministry to clothing company KDI Garment Sdn Bhd for the supply of body-vest protection.

“A check with the Registrar of Companies showed that KDI Garmentlast filed their accounts in July 2006, with a revenue of RM1.75 million anda profit of only RM1,600.

“Should such a company be awarded a contract that is nearly 50 times its last known revenue?

Two other ‘interesting contracts’

Additionally, Pua discovered two other “interesting” contracts awarded by the Royal Malaysian Police – one to purchase ‘OKI printer ribbon and toner cartridges’ for RM25.4 million and the another, to buy ‘ink and toner cartridges for Canon printers’ forRM12.9 million.

“That amount works out to approximately RM400 spent on each police officer for the use of printer ribbon and toner cartridges.


“But because there is no other information provided, we do not know how long the contract is for and the quantity (of ribbons and cartridges),” he added.

Pua blasted the portal for its lack of details regarding the contracts as this will help provide greater transparency.

“While there are no details of tender specifications, dates of tender and award, quantities, number of competitive bids and other relevant information, we have been able todetect various discrepancies and highlight potential ‘rent-seeking’ and ‘patronage’ deals,” he said.


Pua, who is former economic spokesperson for DAP, had been scrutinising the portal since its launch last week and has over the past few days pointed out a number of discrepancies.

Nazri Aziz – Malaysia’s Minister of Lies.

April 15, 2010

Ayam berkok-kok, Nazri bertalk-cock

It is indeed ironic that the Minister should be so quick to accuse others of lying, for when it comes to telling lies no one has left such an indelible mark on Malaysian politics than Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz acts tough, talks big, and throws his weight around. He thinks he is very smart and knows everything! After all, he is also the minister in charge of parliamentary affairs and the de facto Law Minister.

Those who refuse to tolerate Nazri’s nonsense have to contend with his temper tantrums and theatrics. Apart from his childish threats and taunts, the Minister has become adept through the years with turning and twisting the truth whilst calling others liars.

It was typical of him to accuse Thai pathologist Dr. Pornthip of being a liar: “She lied in the inquest and she is lying now”. Dr. Pornthip has claimed that Putrajaya has exercised “political pressure” which “could affect her work” in Southern Thailand thereby forcing her to pull out from testifying in the on-going Teoh Beng Hock inquest.

It is indeed ironic that the Minister should be so quick to accuse others of lying, for when it comes to telling lies no one has left such an indelible mark on Malaysian politics than Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz.

Below are some examples of him lying (intentionally or unintentionally) especially in Parliament!

Compulsive Liar

In May 2004, Nazri bluffed Parliament that Suhakam’s annual report is never meant to be debated in Parliament. The truth is that it is a legislative requirement for Suhakam, a creation of Parliament, to submit annual reports to Parliament so that its findings can be debated and its recommendations deliberated on.

In April 2005, Nazri tried to fool parliament by claiming that the “Cabinet’s plan to form a select committee on water privatisation was dropped because the King wanted water privatisation to be in place by the end of the year”. Lim Kit Siang told Nazri not to drag the King into the issue and that “…the Royal address is the policy pronouncement of the government of the day”.

In the same month, Nazri came up with a tall tale that “Bibles in Bahasa Malaysia cannot be circulated in the country as this could be seen as an effort to spread Christianity among the Malays….The prohibition had been in force since Independence and was in line with the Constitution” (Star, 13 Apr. 2005). A week later the then PM Abdullah Badawi said that there was no such ban.

In June 2006, Nazri misled parliament into believing that there “is no basis for the allegation of corruption in the judiciary as contained in a letter written by former High Court judge Datuk Syed Ahmad Idid (for) the case has been investigated by the Government, the ACA and the AG” (Star, 28 June 2006). The judge who resigned in 1996, wrote a 33-page letter highlighting corruption, abuse of power and personal misconduct in the judiciary.

The Sultan of Selangor have spoken!!!

April 13, 2010

Baginda juga menganggap kejayaan dalam dua tahun ini ialah prestasi tadbir urus kerajaan Selangor hingga mendapat pengiktirafan Sijil Tanpa Teguran daripada Ketua Audit Negara pada tahun lalu.

Pengiktirafan itu sekali gus meyakinkan Sultan Sharafuddin bahawa kerajaan negeri pada masa ini, dapat mentadbir Selangor dengan baik. ( Tahniah Pakatan Rakyat )

Titah baginda, kerajaan yang baik, telus dan bertanggungjawab yang dilaungkan  kepimpinan kerajaan sekali gus membentuk paradigma baru dalam menyampaikan mesej keadilan dan kesejahteraan kepada rakyat.

Baginda turut gembira kerana kebanyakan program yang dilaksanakan oleh kerajaan negeri dapat merakyatkan ekonomi Selangor melalui pelbagai pendekatan yang dibuat.

Antaranya ialah Pakej Rangsangan Ekonomi Negeri Selangor, program SPIES, pengagihan 10 peratus keuntungan kepada mereka yang berhak, pemuliharaan dan pembangunan Sungai Klang, skim pinjaman mikrokredit, pembagunan sukan melalui Majlis Sukan Negeri Selangor dan pembangunan projek teknologi.

Baginda bertitah demikian ketika merasmikan Mesyuarat Pertama Penggal Ketiga Sidang Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor Kali Ke-12 pagi tadi.

Sultan Sharafuddin bertitah kepada semua wakil rakyat supaya dapat memberikan khidmat terbaik selari dengan amanah yang diberikan rakyat.

“Beta berharap Dewan ini menjadi medan terbaik untuk menyelesaikan pelbagai isu melibatkan kepentingan rakyat. Mulakanlah dengan niat untuk bekerja dengan jujur, ikhlas dan betul dan berilah kerjasama yang perlu kepada pimpinan Menteri Besar, Tan Sri Datuk Abdul Khalid Ibrahim,” titah baginda.

Sultan Sharafuddin turut bertitah segala bentuk isu peribadi akibat perbezaan politik perlu diketepikan untuk rakyat kerana mahu melihat kerajaan Selangor mendapat manfaat dan menjalankan amanah rakyat dengan cekap dan lancar.

“Beta sedar dalam politik tidak mungkin ada 100 peratus persetujuan dan memang diakui bahawa amalan check and balance perlu bagi memastikan semua kepentingan diteliti. Beta mahu semua pihak melaksanakan sistem yang ada atas landasan amanah dan bukan isu peribadi akibat perbezaan politik,” titah baginda lagi. – TVS.

It is not the number of years in one’s life that matters — it is how much life one injects into those years that really counts. And for the grandfather of 11, the very essence of that life was his unfaltering faith and belief in the struggles of one man — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

By Clara Chooi

HULU SELANGOR, April 9 — At 70, Abdul Kudus Omar, even with his thinning shock of white hair, cuts a slim, trim and youthful figure.

His eyes, now crinkled at the corners, tell of stories long past and experiences that, although sometimes bitter, have also become the potion of life that has kept him fuelled throughout the years.

To Abdul Kudus, it is not the number of years in one’s life that matters — it is how much life one injects into those years that really counts. And for the grandfather of 11, the very essence of that life was his unfaltering faith and belief in the struggles of one man — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Ironically, Abdul Kudus’ friendship with the fiery opposition leader, dating as far back as 1974, had sparked off from a rather bizarre setting — in the interrogation room of the Bukit Aman police headquarters.

Then a corporal with the force’s Special Branch unit, Abdul Kudus who is today the division chairman for PKR Tanjung Karang, was tasked with interrogating the young student leader Anwar, who had been detained — for the first time — under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for rallying against rural poverty and hunger.

“It was a 60-day long interrogation. I was assigned to the duty with two others but I did most of the questioning for the others often found ways to get out of it,” Abdul Kudus told The Malaysian Insider in an exclusive interview here this week.

The septuagenarian gestured energetically as he recalled the details of his early friendship with Anwar and looked right at home in the tiny coffee shop nestled at the fringes of Desa Maju, Kampung Sungai Tengi. Despite his advanced years, the pint-sized activist commutes at least one hour daily to the village, known to be an Umno stronghold, to spearhead activities for his party’s campaign in the Hulu Selangor by-election on April 25.

“I had already known of Anwar before, as the leader of Abim (Malaysian Muslim Youth Movement), but we only met when he got arrested. It was too bad that he got arrested. At the time, the Home Ministry claimed that his actions had been under the influence and instigation of Parti Komunis Malaya — they were trying to implicate him with the communist party.

“Anwar was placed under solitary confinement for his involvement in the protests and my job was to speak with him every day for 60 days, to determine if he was indeed a threat to national security,” said Abdul Kudus.

In the 60 days, he said, his admiration for the young Anwar grew.

“He was co-operative, there was no exchange of harsh words or violence. We discussed things; education policies, politics, everything,” he said.

It was during that time, said Abdul Kudus, that he “fell in love” with Anwar’s courage and powerful convictions.

“There was something inside this guy, something in his style that told me: this man will be the prime minister of Malaysia one day,” he said.

Abdul Kudus said that although Anwar was sent to serve a 20-month sentence at the Kamunting detention camp, his friendship with him never wavered.

“We stayed in touch and when he was released, we would meet up, sometimes as often as once a week. We spoke extensively about the future of Islam, the wellbeing of the people and the future of the country,” he said.

Abdul Kudus added that he had initially been opposed to the idea of Anwar joining Umno. “I do not know what it was, I just felt something was not good. At the time, it was (former prime minister Tun) Dr Mahathir (Mohamad) who invited him in. He called Anwar’s father-in-law, Datuk Wan Ismail and said that he wanted Anwar to join his Cabinet,” he said.

Despite his uneasiness at the proposition, Abdul Kudus said his support for Anwar continued throughout the years, until the leader reached the pinnacle of his career in the Federal Government — he had become the country’s second-in-line to the premiership as the deputy prime minister.

Anwar’s steady climb to the top came to an abrupt stop, however, when he was suddenly sacked in 1998 over allegations of sodomy and corruption, and subsequently sent to jail until 2004.

“In Sept 2, 1998, I was in Seremban visiting my children when I heard the news — Anwar had been removed. I knew immediately he had been framed. I knew it without a doubt.

“Since that day, I joined the reformasi (reformation) movement and never looked back,” he said.

Abdul Kudus admitted that although his faith in Anwar had already become an impenetrable fortress, it had not been an easy transition to move from his cushy life as a pro-establishment supporter to the opposition camp.

“I had joined Umno in 1996 already. I was in the party as a member for almost two years when Anwar was removed. But it mattered little for I knew, and I strongly believed, that this man had been framed,” he said.

In Sept 16, 1998, Abdul Kudus organised a mammoth rally for Anwar at his home in Tanjung Karang, giving the leader the platform to explain his predicament to the people.

“Thousands gathered to hear him. It was surreal,” he said.

On Sept 20, Anwar was arrested. A few days later, Abdul Kudus, and many of his family members were sacked from Umno.

“Anyone with the ‘bin Omar’ name was sacked. But it was funny — we laughed until our stomachs exploded,” he said.

Abdul Kudus went on to explain that even his contract for an excavator service business that he had just started at the time, was also taken away.

“They took everything from us, from me. Even my brother, who was not an Umno member, was apparently sacked from Umno. Do not ask me how, we received the letters and we just laughed,” he said.

The losses, however, never once dampened Abdul Kudus’ resolve to stand strong for the reformasi movement, and his blind faith in Anwar even withstood the test of whopping offers of gifts and monetary rewards.

“I am quite somebody in Selangor. And they (Umno) knew that. I am very valuable to them because the people of Selangor know me,” he said.

He claimed that he had been approached with contract offers and cash rewards in exchange for his return to Umno and his departure from the reformasi movement.

“They asked me — how many million ringgit worth of contract do you want? I was asked also to hand over my membership form to Umno to a prominent politician onstage during one function and when I descended from the stage, I was to receive RM5 million upfront,” he said, smiling coyly.

Abdul Kudus claimed he politely declined the offers.
One day, Abdul Kudus believes, Anwar will lead the nation. — Picture by Choo Choy May

“After 34 years of clean service with the force… I never once accepted corrupt offers… and now, when I am old and decrepit, why should I sacrifice all those years?” he said.

Instead, Abdul Kudus said he chose to follow his heart.

“And I had already, from years before, fallen in love with Anwar’s fight. What Anwar is preaching is the very value I admire… I fall in love with people who preach the universal values of mankind — that mankind is equal, that we are all one people.

“I see that he is not only a leader to his family, to the people but also, he is a leader of the world. When Anwar speaks, everyone listens — the Muslims, the Christians, the Buddhists, everyone,” he said.

Abdul Kudus expressed disgust at leaders who ruled only for the sake of holding on to power and not to use that power to improve society.

“They do not care, they would do anything to stay up on that pedestal,” he said.

He noted that Anwar, however, had not only gone to the far corners of power but had also been dragged mercilessly from the throne and thrown into the dark recesses of incarceration.

Even then, he said, the now 62-year-old leader had still emerged upholding the very same principles he had admired in the young student leader whom he met in 1974.

It was this determination, concluded Abdul Kudus, that would make his prediction, made within the four walls of the dank interrogation room at Bukit Aman more than 30 years ago, come true.

“Anwar will become the prime minister of Malaysia one day.”

Welcome to Sarawak. Another By-Election.

April 9, 2010

Hulu Selangor will be a testing ground for PR to defend on the 25th April 2010. Most probably between PKR and MIC.

Today it is given a chance back to BN to defend in Sibu, Sarawak, when their MP Datuk Robert Lau passed away this morning. PR lost it’s first By-Election in Batang Ai, Sarawak after 308.

Now the battle will be getting tougher and tougher since both side are fighting a nail biting battle in every By-Election since 308.

And the score now stands in favour of PR with a 7 PR vs 2 BN. Let us hear for our East Malaysian Brothers and sisters after the showdown in Hulu Selangor.

Pakatan Rakyat leads in getting new voters.

April 8, 2010
Written by Chan Kok Leong
PETALING JAYA: Pakatan Rakyat (PR) registered the highest number of voters in 2009, according to Election Commission (EC) statistics.

The opposition coalition of PKR, DAP and PAS took the lion’s share by registering 54.5% of the 69,906 new voters with the EC, while Barisan Nasional (BN) recorded 45.1% for the whole of Malaysia.

But Umno topped the list for the most number of voters registered among 20 political parties at 24,818 or 35.5% followed by DAP at 25.4% and PAS at 24.3%.

For the whole of last year 59,568 eligible voters registered with the political parties in Peninsular Malaysia while 10,338 registered themselves with the parties in East Malaysia.

Among the BN partners, Umno was the most hardworking at 78.6% followed by Sarawak-based Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) at 6.6% (2,082 voters).

MCA finished third with 1,467 voters registered or 4.6%. The 15-party coalition registered 31,568 new voters.

In the PR coalition, DAP was top with 17,790 voters (46.6%) registered, followed closely by PAS’ 17,022 (44.6%). PKR came in last with a paltry 3,331 (8.7%) new voters logged. Together, the parties registered 38,143 new voters.

According to the February 2010 data, last year’s trend was repeated with PR recording 55.3% of the total number of new voters registered followed by BN at 44.5%. Umno also led the way with 41.9% followed by DAP (25.3%) and PAS (19.2%).

In Perak, despite its loss of the state government last year, PR registered the highest number of new voters at 7,357 or 81.5% while BN pulled in 1,664 (18.5%) new voters.

In contrast, BN pulled in more new voters in Terengganu and Johor. In Terengganu, BN registered 85.4% of the 9,281 new voters while PAS logged in the remainder.

In Umno’s backyard of Johor, BN registered 73.5% of the 6,417 new voters while PR took 26.5%.

In the PAS hotbed, Kelantan, 92.4% of the 4,938 new voters chose to register with the Islamist party while the rest opted for Umno.

But in Selangor, the numbers were more evenly split with PR taking 57.8% of the 12,546 new voters compared to BN’s 42.3%.

The numbers were also similar in the other PR-held states of Penang and Kedah. PR had 57.2% and 57.9% in Penang and Kedah respectively.

In anticipation of a state election in Sarawak, PR parties — PKR and DAP — have stepped up their activities by registering 52.5% of the 7,669 new voters compared to the BN ones.

DAP registered 2,717 while PKR logged in 1,306. Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud’s party, PBB, registered 2,082 new voters while another coalition partner Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) logged in 1,254.
