Selamat Hari Raya, PM Ke-7

Will the real 7th Prime Minister please stand up?

When I first set my eyes upon the photo above late last month, I thought of individual monologues based on the body language shown by the individuals in the photo.

Lim Kit Siang: “I am only holding this up because I will need the support of the Malays in PKR.”

Mahathir: “Anwar as the 7th PM? No way, Jose!”

Azmin: “I don’t really want to put this up but I need the party to vote me for the top post.”

Wan Azizah: “Better him than me. I am clueless most of the time!”

The above photo is the perfect depiction of how the Opposition front is in a disarray.  Each of the parties in the Pakatan Harapan want to become the Big Brother. PKR believes that it has what it needs to lead the coalition; Pribumi believes that it should have the lead role as it has a former Prime Minister as well as a former Deputy Prime Minister (and throw in a former Menteri Besar who did virtually nothing for the state he governed); while the DAP knows that it is the Kingmaker in the coalition, and no matter who becomes the Pakatan’s PM, they call the shots.

However, if those above were actually sincerely hoping for Anwar Ibrahim to become the next Prime Minister, they would be utterly disappointed as Anwar had recently announced the removal of himself as the coalition’s PM candidate.  The announcement leaves the race to become the Pakatan’s Prime Minister candidate to just two persons – Azmin Ali, PKR’s current Deputy President and Menteri Besar of Selangor, and U-Turn Mahathir, a former Prime Minister who stepped down but now misses the power that comes with the seat.


Wan Azizah does not come close to being the person either Azmin or Mahathir are.

But what of Lim Kit Siang?

Lim Kit Siang is the de facto father of the Opposition, no matter by what name you call it.  Although he declared that he is not interested in the post of the Prime Minister, everyone knows that he does not have to be in the seat to actually rule the country.  Nizar Jamaluddin, the JKR engineer who once went on to become Perak’s Menteri Besar, contested on PAS’s ticket but became the MB because his mother is related to Perak DAP henchmen Ngeh Koo Ham and Nga Kor Ming.  Through Nizar, the DAP managed to get things done its way, including giving leasehold land to Chinese New Villages inhabitants for 999 years!

Although Kit Siang is just a member of the DAP’s Central Executive Committee and nothing more, he is the hidden hand behind the CEC and especially his son, Lim Guan Eng (Tokong) who is the party’s Secretary-General.

Lim Kit Siang is known to use whatever means at his disposal to make sure he stays in power.

Those born in the mid-1970s and onwards may not have heard of the name Goh Hock Guan. He was the DAP Secretary-General who was involved in a power tussle with Kit Siang.

Hock Guan, who was also the Selangor DAP Chairman, wanted to field Lau Dak Kee in the Ulu Selangor by-election but Kit Siang favoured (now Tan Sri) Lee Lam Thye.

The repeat of this was in Johor during the 13th General Elections where Kit Siang and Tokong pushed aside then-state DAP Chairman Boo Cheng Hau and fielded their minions in order to hold on to power.

Kit Siang’s next move was to expel Hock Guan from the party. Others who were expelled included Dr Soarian, Chan Teck Chan, Seow Hun Khin, Chin Nyuk Soo and Goh Lin Eam.

Goh Hock Guan, in his letter to Cheng Man Hin, said,

“I don’t want to have any relationship with Lim Kit Siang. We’re totally adverse in terms of viewpoints and personality. As long as Kit Siang is holding the position as the Secretary-General of the DAP, he would definitely and finally destroy the future of DAP.”

Lee Lam Thye was made the Deputy Secretary-General but without power nor authority. Under Kit Siang’s orders, Lam Thye was not allowed to give views nor comments of any dissatisfaction. But he had an impeccable record of service to his constituency, and this threatened Kit Siang’s position.

On 29 September 1990, Lee Lam Thye dropped a bombshell announcing his departure from the DAP.  He said,

“A few leaders had hurt me from behind…I can’t stand anymore.”

After Lam Thye’s resignation, Lim Kit Siang issued a gag-order on the DAP ordering all party members to ‘shut-up’, avoiding giving any statement, view or statement through the media.

Lee Lam Thye certainly has a better life outside Kit Siang’s DAP

Azmin Ali may be the star of PKR but he does not have the support of the leadership.  It is no secret that he has no love whatsoever for Wan Azizah and her camp.

While Wan Azizah is no match for Azmin, who was Anwar’s Principal Private Secretary, Rafizi and Tian Chua who are in the former’s camp has been actively and openly doing things to undermine Azmin’s position.

Dubbed as the UMNO-man in PKR, I doubt that Azmin would make it to the Prime Minister’s seat as long as there still are those who are opposed to him.

And I also doubt his ability to rein them in onto his side.

This leaves us with the Gollum who still yearns for his precious seat.


At 92, many think that he is too old to be returning to the Premiership. He doesn’t think so.  Even with a protem Pribumi President, he thinks that only he is fit to lead the nation he dumped in 2003.


Which is why despite concerns he has twice hinted that the next Prime Minister for Malaysia is him.

We all know what kind of a PM he was, and we all know putting him and Kit Siang side-by-side, they are actually one of a kind. Both are fighting for the survival of their dynasty while current PKR’s reason for struggle has not changed since 1998 – Anwar Ibrahim’s freedom and nothing else beyond that.

Wan Azizah has already announced after Anwar’s bombshell announcement that the Pakatan should concentrate on winning the next general elections before thinking of who is to become the PM.

Wan Azizah’s absurd comment

That is as absurd as saying let us get in the car and then we decide where to go on a holiday.  Everybody wants to know who will become the PM if they let you win.  Having said that, you do not need to have a brain if you are Wan Azizah

Although time is running out for him, Mahathir has no problem working with arch enemy Kit Siang as long as he gets to become PM again.

Maybe all he wants is to die in office. That way he stays No.1 till kingdom come.  Who doesn’t want a send-off fit for a Pharaoh? So, in the meantime, wishing the 7th PM Selamat Hari Raya, whoever you may be.

The Bully Speaks

In an incredibly amazingly stupid feat, the DAP has blamed the death of teenager Nhaveen on the Barisan Nasional federal government.


Jagdeep Singh Deo on his Facebook account said that “the crux of the matter is that the Federal Government has failed this family by not preventing this incident.”

Nhaveen died after being assaulted by other teenagers in DAP-run state, Pulau Pinang. He never regained consciousness.

How do you blame the Federal Government for something that happens in your backyard? Pulau Pinang is the only state that has its own Volunteer Patrol Force (Pasukan Peronda Sukarela) with the publicised aim to assist the Royal Malaysian Police to combat crime, on top of the already legally existing Volunteer Patrol Scheme of the Rukun Tetangga that was formed under the Rukun Tetangga Act.

Tokong’s Sturmabteilung

However, the PPS is just the DAP’s version of Hitler’s Sturmabteilung (Storm Detachment) or more popularly known as the Braunhemden (Brown Shirts). The PPS, or Penyangak Purple Shirt, was used mainly to do DAP’s party works, intimidate the population, and stifle resistance.

Datuk Huan Cheng Guan asks if he police hangs political party banners?

Tokong’s purple mob assaulted Ong Eu Soon, a Pulau Pinang activist who has been outspoken towards Tokong’s government.  Ong, who was at a newsvendor in Air Itam one night, was approached by ten PPS members including Lee Chan Kwong and Lee Yew Kuen who attacked him with their motorcycle helmet.

“You speak up, we beat you up.” – PPS Motto

This is all ‘leadership by example.’  Just as how the Tokong believes he is above the law, the PPS thinks that they are licensed to eliminate resistance to Tokong’s administration.  And just like Tokong who does not believe in press freedom, they too attacked journalists. A PPS member, Lim Ah Chye, was found guilty for attacking Guan Ming Daily’s Deputy Crime Chief, Ang Kean Siang, and destroying his camera.  Ah Chye also harrassed Kean Siang and his girlfriend by threatening them with death should Kean Siang refuse to withdraw his police report.

PPS is just another Nazi organisation

PPS looks up to the Penang administration which is led and controlled by the DAP.  DAP is famous for bullying not only its own members who go against Tokong’s wishes, but also representatives from its partner-parties into submitting to the wishes of the Tokong as the Chief Minister, a role Emperor Lim Kit Siang is said to want to fill in when his Tokong son goes to jail for corrupt practices.

Tokong is a bully – Part 1
Tokong is a bully – Part 2

The Tokong would do anything to stay in power in order to fulfill his greed no matter if he breaches the law and even the Federal Constitution.  Therefore it is no wonder that even a Malaysian-born foreign citizen could knowingly be fielded as election candidates.

There are already those who want to curb Tokong’s excesses.  DAP’s Tanjung Bungah rep as called for the Chief Minister’s term to be limited to only two terms, effectivly ending Tokong’s reign by the next general elections.

Limit the Chief Minister’s term to only two terms and drop ADUNs who are corrupted – a clear point towards the Tokong

However, Teh Yee Cheu knew that his motion would not get any support but submitted it anyhow to show on record that he had called for such a move.  His motion did not get support from those who are afraid of losing their privileges if the Tokong wins against the motion.

Even veteran DAP politician, Tan Seng Giaw, who is very much respected even outsude the ranks of the DAP has been making veiled comments about the excesses of the Pulau Pinang state government led by Tokong.

Tan Seng Giaw laments about Pulau Pinang on Facebook

It is no secret that Tokong is trying to bully Tan Seng Giaw out of the political scene like Boo Cheng Hau of Johor has, and much like his bully-of-a-father the Emperor Lim Kit Siang who killed off those opposed to him in DAP namely Lee Lam Thye and Hu Sepang.  Lee Lam Thye would have been the leader of the DAP had Lim Kit Siang not cheated and had the DAP election results his way. Lam Thye resigned from the DAP and politics.

To mitigate the damage, the Emperor made a speech saying the DAP suffers a major setback in its struggle as a result of Lee Lam Thye’s resignation.

As for Seng Giaw, he would have had the highest votes in the DAP 2012 elections with Emperor Kit Siang getting 7th place, and the Tokong relegated to just a miserable party member.

So back to ‘leadership by example’ and the death of poor Nhaveen.  If the Chief Minister of Penang could commit corrupted acts and go about acting innocent, what are sexual assault and bullying compared to that?  It’s embedded in the Pulau Pinang genes now by its political leadership.

Therefore,  the Pulau Pinang state government has itself to blame for bringing the culture of terror into the state and encouraged its citizens to behave like its leaders.
