Gerakan concedes Penang to DAP for another term.

September 15, 2010
GEORGE TOWN, Sept 12 — Penang Gerakan chief Datuk Teng Hock Nan has conceded that DAP can keep the state in the next general elections but said his party has a good chance of recapturing it later.Teng predicted the ruling Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state government will not be in power for a long time.

He said that the popular chief minister, Lim Guan Eng, will not helm the state after the 14th general elections due to “how Lim handles the state affairs”, adding the people need a strong opposition if they want to keep the Lim Administration.

“With his style of running the government, he will be appointed the chief minister in the next general elections, but … not the following general elections,” Teng told The Malaysian Insider.

Elections are not due until 2013 but speculation is rife that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak will call for a snap parliamentary election while the states can hold theirs another time.

Najib’s ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) is grappling with sensitive race issues as a section of the majority Malays want to keep affirmative action policies under his New Economic Model (NEM) while other communities are demanding meritocracy.

The prime minister said yesterday he is committed to affirmative action but the methods need to change.

Speaking on race issues, Teng agreed that leaders from both coalitions in the state – BN and PR – play racial issues for their own benefits, “those holding high government positions” do it more.

“I am not saying Umno doesn’t do it [playing up racial issues] … more so done by people holding high government positions. They don’t pay any regards to social standing and they keep on fanning racial sentiments and running down one race.

“These people are also those who preach that we should not use racial issues for political mileage. You must practice what you preach,” Teng said.

“At one hand, you say this, on the other hand you go against what you say every day,” he added.

Teng noted that the relationship between the different races in the state has worsened compared to the time when the state was under Gerakan’s rule between 1969 and 2008.

He said Penangites will recognise the efforts of the multiracial Gerakan in the long run if the party continues to play its role in Penang as not only a constructive opposition, but also as a party that smoothens racial relationship in the state.

Acknowledging that Gerakan is perceived weak, he said the party has taken several initiatives to train new people who would be prepared to play positive roles in the state.

Teng said he was positive that if Gerakan members continued to hold on to party principles and if the younger generation worked together towards the betterment of the party, Gerakan will be able to take over the state administration from PR.

He said although he did not foresee Gerakan getting back the state in the next general election, it was possible in the 14th general election.

“The win will be towards Barisan or the party with a clean image and credibility for  bringing prosperity to Penang, but unfortunately [we are] perceived as weak,” Teng said, referring to Gerakan which was seen as irrelevant after its poor run in the 12th general elections.

The party suffered its worst electoral defeat after retaining only two federal seats. The party also lost its only cabinet post following its poor performance in the election.

But Teng urged Penangites to give the party “a chance” in the next general election to play the role of a constructive opposition in the state assembly.

“In any administration … any government, absolute power corrupts. We are heading towards absolute power. If you want Guan Eng to hold on to power longer, we appeal to the people to put a few of us in the state assembly,” he said.

“We want people to trust our track record and put a few of us in the state assembly for check and balance in the state assembly so that Guan Eng’s government doesn’t rot too fast. It will rot sometime, but not too soon lah,” he added.

How come KTK was so quiet about this?

DAP is here to stay in Penang…..bye bye BN….Blardy Nonsense.

UMNO caught lying AGAIN !!!

September 11, 2010

Once a liar always a liar….and it’s proven again, they lied!

During the last few days of Ramadan Month when the Muslims are fasting, it was supposed to be a Holy month but yet again some Muslims are willingly spewing lies after lies just to make themselves some cheap publicity in the news. Sad these Muslims do not respect their own followings but yet when non-Muslim invited to a Mosque by the nazir of the Mosque they make hell for them….and plenty of police reports….calling them “hina” Agama Islam.

See what they wear “officially” and what their leaders says.

UMNO & Perkasa Logo on their official shirt.

Rabu lalu, mesyuarat BN di Putrajaya memutuskan untuk memisahkan dirinya dari PERKASA kerana aktiviti pertubuhan itu boleh menjejaskan usaha BN untuk mendapatkan sokongan bukan Melayu. Sejumlah pemimpin BN yang menghadiri mesyuarat tersebut, telah menyatakan keraguan terhadap PERKASA dan mendesak Umno menyatakan pendiriannya terhadap pertubuhan tersebut.

Parti Cinta Malaysia menyokong tindakan pemimpin Umno memisahkan diri mereka daripada Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (PERKASA). Naib presidennya, Huan Cheng Guan berkata orang dan individu yang berfikiran waras sepatutnya menjauhkan diri daripada pertubuhan pimpinan ahli parlimen Pasir Mas, Datuk Ibrahim Ali.

“Kepimpinan Umno mesti mengarahkan wakil rakyatnya dan ketua bahagiannya supaya tidak menyertai aktiviti anjurah PERKASA dan menganggotai jawatankuasanya,” kata Huan yang juga bekas naib presiden Gerakan.

Berikutan itu, Setiausaha agung Umno, Datuk Tengku Adnan Mansor kemudian berjanji kepada rakan-rakan BN bahawa parti itu tidak akan memberi sokongan kepada PERKASA ataupun IbrahimPERKASA, yang mendakwa mempunyai 50,000 ahli, ditubuhkan selepas pilihanraya umum 2008 selepas pilihanraya dalam usaha untuk melindungi hak-hak berperlembagaan orang Melayu.

Ramai ahlinya adalah dari Umno. Benarlah kata orang, kewujudan PERKASA adalah satu bebanan ‘maha’ berat kepada Umno.. kehadirannya ternyata membuatkan Umno tidak selesa, selain membuktikan Umno gagal dalam membela hak Melayu/bumiputra (cakap je lebih)..

Tanggunglah sendiri wahai pemimpin dan penyokong Umno.. berani keluar statement (konon nk tunjuk tidak ada kaitan dgn PERKASA), so berani lah tanggung… selepas satu persatu bala menimpa.. mula mula kompenan BN dah beri ‘warning’, diikuti Parti Cinta Malaysia pula beri pukulan maut…
Umno kini hanya ada dua pilihan, sama ada menurut ‘titah’ parti2 kompenan BN dan Parti Cinta Malaysia, iaitu dgn memboikot segala aktiviti PERKASA sebagai membuktikan kata2nya, atau membuat U-turn dgn mengumumkan akan menyokong PERKASA..

Tidak pelik selepas ini, Umno akan berpecah kpd dua kumpulan, iaitu satu kumpulan yg cenderung kpd PERKASA/Ibrahim Ali/Tun Mahathir, dan satu kumpulan lagi yang menyampah dan meluat kepada team PERKASA tadi yg menjunjung gagasan 1Malaysia Najib, antaranya Khairy Jamaluddin dan Nazri Aziz…

May i ask, who is lying? UMNO or Perkasa? Najis or Ibrahim Ali? Tengku Adnan or Dr M?

looks like UMNO melayus are trying to cheat the Malaysian Malays again.
