Pernicious Pakatan

I still remember before the 12th General Elections when the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat came up with 23 promises in their manifesto. The first category, “Administration” had these:

  1. To ensure that all state assemblymen are always clean from misappropriation or corruption throughout their term of service.
  2. To form a special body To investigate any misappropriation regarding the administration of land and other state resources.

Everyone lauded the now-defunct Pakatan Rakyat for the manifesto. Soon after forming the state government the MACC was already investigating shady deals involving the state government that led to the demise of witness Teoh Beng Hock whose death benefitted DAP more than the Barisan Nasional, and the aide of former Menteri Besar, Khalid Ibrahim who has sinced been sentenced to prison with whipping.


Recently, PKR’s Chicken Blower Rafizi Ramli (above) made a report to the MACC on bribes being asked by members of the Selangor administration.


The bribes, in the form of women, are said to be asked to those wanting favours from people in the state government.

Today, we have been shocked once again – a former PKR Selangor MP has been arrested by the MACC for receiving bribes amounting to RM30,000 to facilitate a contractor’s tender process. He is also being investigated for eight other offences.

A despicable offence that he is also being investigated for is the misappropriation of provident funds of a disabled person. The money totaling  RM60,000 was siphoned out from the provident fund account after he convinced the disabled person to withdraw the savings and passed to him.


All the offences above were committed while he was still in office yet not one special body was set up by the Pakatan Rakyat government.

Pakatan Rakyat/Pakatan Harapan mase so much noise about the alleged abuses done by the Barisan Nasional from 1974-2008. Yet, the Selangor state government has managed to do despicable things within the first eight years alone.

They had no qualms cheating a disabled person of his life savings. And do you still want to give them power?

The Pakartun’s Poltroon

I cannot really make out what Tony Pua really is. What, not who. Either he is showing one of the early signs of dementia, or he truly is a retard.

Mr Puaka, as he is fondly referred to with a hint of sarcasm on social media, mentioned to the press that the DAP should contest in all the now-defunct Pakatan Rakyat seats held by former partner, PAS. That has brought about negative responses from PAS office-holders who still cling to the past and forgetting that DAP has welcomed PAS splinter-group PAN, as its partner in the recently announced Pakatan Harapan that has replaced the Pakatan Rakyat (except in Selangor).

  
The only reason for the Pakatan Rakyat to still exist in Selangor is because the Menteri Besar, Azmin Ali, knows if PAS is excluded then he would have to face the possibility of being ousted from office by the real holders of Selangor political power – the DAP. That is why I used the term Pakartun to describe the loose political cooperative.

Of course Mr Puaka talks big only when he is in Selangor, or when protected by immunity in Parliament.

Puaka has been using his privilege as a member of the Public Accounts Committee to hit out at 1MDB’s Arul Kanda. He dared Arul Kanda to an open forum or debate bit received no response from the latter. Now that Arul has turned around and accepted the debate challenge without terms and conditions, Mr Puaka has seemed to chicken out, giving all sorts of excuses not to debate, including saying:

“It should be a question-and-answer session and not a debate because I am asking the questions. There’s nothing for him (Arul) to ask me.”

He said the above to Pakartun’s unofficial media, Malaysiakini.

  

Like I said, I don’t know what to make out of Mr Puaka. He surely suffers from short-term memory loss. It was he who dared Arul Kanda to an open debate, but now wants to protect himself from being scrutinised by the latter. Lest we forget:

  He is a bright spark from the DAP. Therefore he can’t be suffering from dementia. But it sure proves that he is nothing but a yellow-bellied, milksop!

PKR: The Big Fat Joke – Part 5

Now that Azmin Ali has been chosen to replace Khalid Ibrahim as the Menteri Besar, PKR has come up with a resolution that accepts Azmin Ali as the Sultan’s choice as the MB, and in the same letter displays its rude behaviour again towards the Sultan.

Now, as Deputy President of PKR, I am pretty certain Azmin Ali supports these resolutions and with a thick skin attend his swearing-in ceremony tomorrow.

Good luck, Selangor! I hope you have applied enough KY onto your buttcrack again this time.

RESOLUSI MAJLIS PIMPINAN PUSAT KEADILAN BERHUBUNG PERLANTIKAN MENTERI BESAR SELANGOR

Majlis Pimpinan Pusat KEADILAN (MPP) telah mengadakan satu mesyuarat tergempar pada hari ini, 22 September 2014 berikutan perkembangan terbaru perlantikan Menteri Besar Selangor.

Berikut adalah resolusi yang telah diluluskan sebulat suara di dalam mesyuarat tersebut:

1. MPP mengambil maklum bahawa pada 22 September 2014, pihak Istana telah mengutuskan satu surat memaklumkan kepada Saudara Azmin Ali, Timbalan Presiden KEADILAN akan perkenan Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tuanku Sultan ke atas perlantikan beliau sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor. Beliau telah juga dijemput untuk upacara angkat sumpah pada 23 September 2014.

2. MPP melahirkan rasa yang amat kesal dengan layanan yang telah diberikan oleh pihak Istana terhadap pencalonan Dato’ Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail yang telah memenuhi kehendak Undang-undang Tubuh Negeri Selangor dengan sokongan majoriti 30 ahli Dewan Negeri. MPP juga tidak bersetuju dengan cara pihak Istana menangani proses pencalonan yang melibatkan Dato’ Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail sehingga beliau langsung tidak dipanggil mengadap walaupun mempunyai sokongan majoriti yang jelas.

3. Oleh itu, MPP berpendapat bahawa proses memperkenan lantikan Menteri Besar Selangor yang baru ini tidak mengikut kehendak Undang-undang Tubuh Negeri Selangor dan bertentangan dengan amalan prinsip demokrasi berparlimen. Ia juga menjejaskan kemuliaan institusi raja berpelembagaan.

4. Walau bagaimana pun, MPP juga mengambil kira keperluan menyelesaikan isu perlantikan Menteri Besar Selangor ini secepat mungkin demi menjaga kepentingan rakyat.

5. Makanya, MPP telah memutuskan untuk menghormati permintaan Dato’ Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail untuk beliau menarik diri dari dicalonkan agar isu ini dapat diselesaikan segera. Berikutan itu, MPP juga bersetuju dengan cadangan yang dibawa oleh Dato’ Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail agar Saudara Azmin Ali dikemukakan sebagai calon Menteri Besar supaya pencalonan Saudara Azmin Ali itu adalah dari parti mengikut tuntutan amalan demokrasi.

6. Ini selaras dengan pendirian MPP bahawa kemuliaan perlembagaan dan keluhuran undang-undang perlulah dipertahankan sepanjang masa. MPP menegaskan juga bahawa proses yang tidak menepati kehendak undang-undang ini tidak boleh dijadikan satu duluan (precedent) di masa hadapan.

PKR: The Big Fat Joke – Part 3

This evening started off with a communiqué from PKR’s Secretary-General:

Five minutes later, the Sec-Gen got outranked:

These comedians should try going into that line instead of politics. They can’t even agree on how to communicate and they dream about governing this country.

May I suggest for them becoming stand up comedians in, perhaps Saturday Night Dead!

Masquerade

Firstly, I do not know who gave the title “Constitutional Expert” to Professor Aziz Bari.  The fact that he used to lecture at the law faculty of the International Islamic University does not make him one.  It is like saying every soldier is a demolitions expert. However, everyone can safely deduce that he leans more towards Pakatan Rakyat, especially PKR, politically.

Probably every Tom, Dick and Harry might have responded to Aziz Bari’s claim that the Sultan of Selangor has no right to ask for more names for the latter to choose as the next Menteri Besar of Selangor.  He said this as reported by Malaysiakini’s Pakar: Sultan Tiada Kuasa Minta Banyak Nama (27th August 2014). In his statement, Aziz said that in a Parliamentary system, the (state) government is responsible to the state assembly, not to the Sultan. He added that the Sultan only has to agree to appoint the candidate with the most support in the state assembly as the Menteri Besar.

“Majority,” he said to Malaysiakini, “is the only (appointment) criteria, therefore the Sultan has no right to request for more names since there is already majority.”

Perhaps our “Constitutional Expert” does not know much on the history behind the Constitution. The Rulers may be Constitutional Monarchs but ours is not the same as the Westminster Monarch that they have in England.  In England, the monarchy was reinstated with the installation of King Charles II by Parliament after the failure of Oliver Cromwell’s Republic that followed the decapitation of King Charles I.  All laws are passed by Parliament without the Queen’s Consent (or King’s Consent if the Ruler of England is male) save for four things: bills affecting the royal prerogative (whatever the royal prerogatives are, are quite shady due to the nature of the uncodified Constitution in England). The second is bills affecting the hereditary revenues of the Duchy of Lancaster or the Duchy or Cornwall. Third, bills affecting the personal property of the monarch, and lastly, bills affecting the “personal interests” of the monarch.

To understand the role of the Rulers in Malaysia one must take several steps back in the history of this nation.  The mistake made by the government since those days is to instill the spirit of nationalism into every Malaysian.  The simplest way is to say that we were colonised by the British, and that we gained independence for them – which would only be true for Pulau Pinang, Melaka and Singapore. When Malaya gained “independence” only Pulau Pinang and Melaka rejoined Malaya while Singapore remained a British colony.  The British were here by virtue of the various treaties made with the respective Malay rulers.  British advisers were appointed and were paid by the Sultan who appointed them to administer the state on behalf of the Sultan.  They basically administered everything except for matters that affected Islam and the Malay customs, which remained the Sultan’s sole prerogative.  When the British administration left in 1957, this role was taken over by the Menteri Besar and the state executive assembly that form the administration part of the state government through elections.  The executive power remains with the Sultan. This is evident in Article 181(1) of the Federal Constitution that says:

“Subject to the provisions of this Constitution,” the “sovereignty, prerogatives, powers and jurisdiction of the Rulers…as hitherto had and enjoyed shall remain unaffected.”

The same was noted by Mark R Gillen of the Faculty of Law, University of Victoria (Gillen 1994:7). In the words of the late Sultan of Perak, Sultan Azlan Shah, former Lord President, it is:

“a mistake to think that the role of a King, like that of a President, is confined to what is laid down by the Constitution, His role far exceeds those constitutional provisions” (Azlan Shah 1986:89)

On Aziz Bari’s claim that the (state) government is answerable to the state assembly and not to the Sultan, may I remind Aziz Bari that in Article 50 of the Selangor Constitution, 1959, it says;

“The executive authority of the State shall be vested in His Highness and exercisable, unless otherwise provided by the Federal Constitution or this Constitution, by him or by the State Executive Council or any member of the State Executive Council authorised by the State Executive Council, byt executive functions may by law be conferred on other persons or authorities.”

You cannot form a government without the consent of the Sultan; hence the need for the Menteri Besar and members of the Executive Council to take an oath of office before the Sultan to administer the State on behalf of the Sultan.

On Aziz Bari’s claim that the Sultan is only to appoint as Menteri Besar whoever has the support of the majority in the state assembly, Aziz Bari should go back to where he read law and ask for his money back.  The Selangor State Constitution explicitly states in Articles 51 and 53(2) that the appointment of the Menteri Besar is the prerogative of the Sultan. The person to be appointed as Menteri Besar is a person, IN HIS MAJESTY’S JUDGMENT is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of the Assembly.  Therefore it is right for His Royal Highness to ask for more than two names to be submitted by each political party that has the majority command of the state assembly.

The same happened in Terengganu when UMNO wanted Idris Jusoh to continue on as the Menteri Besar after the 2008 General Election but the Sultan overruled and insisted on Ahmad Said instead.

The above is the form of democracy with the Sultan having the right to choose whom to head the executive branch of his government to administer the state on His Majesty’s behalf.  What is not democratic is Rafizi Ramli’s instruction to Selangor State Assemblymen under PKR except Wan Azizah and Azmin Ali to decline if nominated as the Menteri Besar by the other parties.

This is to choose a state government FOR THE PEOPLE, not for PKR. Rafizi should just shut up and hide behind his boss, while Aziz Bari ought to ask for his law school fees back, find a better law school and stop this masquerade.

 

Khalid Ibrahim Complains To ROS

The Menteri Besar of Selangor has lodged a complaint to the Registrar of Societies to declare his sacking by Parti Keadilan Rakyat null and voide as it is ultra vires of PKR’s Constitution. This is the latest in a series of legal moves by Khalid Ibrahim against PKR and pakatan-leaning media:

I am surprised that the Menteri Besar’s new allowance is also being questioned. Yet no one is interested to ask why has the allowance for the Speaker as well as ADUNs also gone up at the same time; mind you both Menteris Besar in-waiting, Wan Azizah and Azmin Ali also benefited from this increase.

Talking about Wan Azizah, it has definitely been more than 100 days since she “won” the Kajang seat. What promise has she fulfilled or begun to fulfill? Apart from being that puppet she has been since 1999, and reportedly being a punching bag for whoever it was that made her fled to her sisters house in November 1993 or around about that and calling up four people seeking their help, what has she done?

There has also never been any show-cause letter to Azmin for that press conference stunt he made when someone reportedly broke a certain promise made to him if Selangor is retained by the Pakatan Rakyat during the GE13?

Why is there also no show-cause letter issued to Elizabeth Wong who reportedly fought tooth and nail to wipe out notions that Selangor was going to run out of water come 2014?

PKR is a big fat joke. During its conception in September 1998, it was about fighting for a man who claimed he was wrongfully dismissed.

Now in 2014, it is fighting to dismiss a man wrongfully.

A big fat joke PKR is.

Khalid should just dissolve the state assembly and mean business. It would shut his opponents up.

PKR: The Big Fat Joke

Whoever controls water supply, wins the war. And Muslim soldiers based in Madinah went to war during the Battle of Badr with the Meccans by first denying the latter access to water supply.

In the modern world, water is costly to produce but yields great returns to those who control it. For that reason, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) is confident it could unseat itself in Selangor and win Selangor.

20140806-160542-57942518.jpg

The whole fracas began with the incumbent Menteri Besar, Khalid Ibrahim, making a deal with the Federal government for improving treated-water supply and the supply of raw water from Pahang to Selangor via the Langat 2 project. There is money to be made, therefore everyone wants to lay their hands on Selangor’s water assets despite the dwindling supply of treated water. Khalid received flak from his PKR counterparts for making the deal while Selangor voters were fuming mad over the water rationing despite assurances made by the Selangor state government that there would be enough water supply until 2019, and PAS claimed it would be sufficient until 2022.

Immediately after, Anwar Ibrahim via Rafizi Ramli, initiated the “Kajang Move”, a bid to oust Khalid and appoint Anwar as the Menteri Besar. Fate had it that Anwar was sentenced to a five-year imprisonment for committing sodomy. Enter Wan Azizah, his subservient wife, to contest on behalf of him and again to serve as his seat-warmer. The reason given was Wan Azizah could serve Kajang voters better, an unintentional hint that the Kajang voters were given a short-changed candidate by PKR in the 13th General Elections. Wan Azizah initially said that her becoming a state assemblywoman has nothing to do with the plans to oust Khalid as the Menteri Besar, but of course only idiots believed that.

20140806-162850-59330895.jpg

20140806-162851-59331102.jpg

20140806-162926-59366674.jpg

20140806-162926-59366545.jpg

So, now it is a free-for-all scramble for the Menteri Besar post with the embattled Khalid stuck in the middle of it all. Azmin Ali, Anwar’s lieutenant and Principal Private Secretary to Anwar when he was a Finance Minister, feels that he is the most capable person to govern Selangor. However, I was told that Rafizi as well as non-Malay representatives in PKR, as well as Selangor DAP representatives believe that Azmin is an UMNO person at heart (strangely they also say Khalid is an UMNO agent but still picked him as the Menteri Besar) and should not be allowed to become the MB.

Today, we see letters coming out from the various PKR camps championing both Azmin Ali or Wan Azizah on the other side as the most suitable candidate to become the MB. Below is the letter from the supporters of Azmin:

20140806-163944-59984848.jpg

Then we have one by those championing Wan Azizah:

20140806-164051-60051163.jpg

20140806-164050-60050960.jpg

Meanwhile, Khalid Ibrahim was issued a show-cause letter giving him only three days to reply to asking why should they not remove him for going against party directives:

20140806-164300-60180299.jpg

20140806-164300-60180089.jpg

While this circus show is taking place, the former mining pools used to provide water to the Selangor river dam are quickly running dry, with the dam level close to 30 percent of its capacity, a mandatory rationing level.

20140806-164503-60303594.jpg

PKR is a big fat joke, and the only Keadilan they are fighting for is to fatten up their pockets. And PKR is championing the exact thing Anwar claimed to have fought against: Nepotism and Cronyism.
