RPK says will return if no ISA for him

Raja Petra has offered to return if Najib vows not to welcome him with the ISA.

Going to musicals, enjoying dinner with a group of Malaysian friends until 11pm, and speaking at public events.

Raja Petra Kamarudin, the controversial blogger that the Malaysian police claims it is actively hunting, hardly seems like a man in hiding.

Or, as many reports have put it, a fugitive.

It is a term he bristles at. He said detention without trial is the only thing stopping him from returning home to Malaysia.

“Why am I being called a fugitive, or runaway, or worse, that I absconded? Like I embezzled money and fled the country,” he told

The writer of the No Holds Barred column in web portal, Malaysia Today, insisted that since he is not convicted of any crime and nor were there any standing charges or arrest warrants, he cannot possibly be classified as a fugitive.

He also does not have to appear for the appeal against his release from the Internal Security Act (ISA), a law that allows for detention without trial at the prerogative of the home minister, a case which has seen no progress since Raja Petra left Malaysia in May 2009 .

However, critics point out that he was not in the country when an arrest warrant was issued after he failed to show up for the hearing on a criminal defamation charge last year, resulting in a discharge not amounting to an acquittal in November as the police failed to execute the warrant.

But the man known by his initials, RPK, claimed he left the country not because he wanted to flee charges of sedition and criminal defamation, but that his sources had informed him that a new ISA detention order was being prepared at the time.

“We were winning all the court cases. We were making the government look stupid. My lawyers to this day regret that we had to leave,” he said of the charges levelled at him due to his accusation that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, were involved in the death of Mongolian translator Altantuya Shariibuu, and a related submarine deal that French authorities are now investigating for an alleged irregularity in commission payment, said to amount to a whopping RM500 million.

To back his claim, he issued an open offer to Najib to “guarantee me that I will not be placed under ISA and forget another six charges I know they were preparing, and I will come back and fight the sedition and criminal defamation cases.”

Raja Petra has spent the past few months calling what appears to be the government’s bluff. When police insisted they were still trying to track his whereabouts, he came out to speak in public in May, claiming the Barisan Nasional government knew all along as he had met various Umno figures in the United Kingdom over the past year.

He also told The Malaysian Insider in this interview that his lawyers have informed Scotland Yard that he was available to them anytime, and he has also challenged the government to attempt to extradite him.

Raja Petra was confident that it has not done so as such an attempt would, he claimed, play into his hands.

“With sedition and criminal defamation, the truth of the matter is not material, only whether the statement has caused hurt. But to extradite me, they have to establish dual criminality.”

His point was that a case in a UK court would be based on a different charge that would have to establish whether his allegations against Najib and Rosmah were true, as these two crimes — sedition and criminal defamation — have been abolished in the UK early this year.

But perhaps the one thing that irked him more than being called a fugitive is the idea that he has required funding during his stay in the UK, having left Malaysia over a year ago.

Both Najib and Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir, a deputy minister, have claimed that Raja Petra is not trustworthy as he is funded by the opposition.

“You think I pokai (penniless) ah? You don’t know how much property I own, or shares, or any of my financial background.

“Do you know how many public-listed companies I was director of in the 1980s?” he said as he laughed off the notion that he was bankrupt.

He explained that he was sent a letter giving him 14 days to contest his bankruptcy on April 14, 2001 but this was only three days into his 60-day stint under his first ISA detention.

“The man I was supposed to have guaranteed was Datuk Hamzah Zainuddin, who has accused Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of harassing his wife. Why would I have guaranteed such a person?” he said, alleging a frame-up.

“But in any case, everyone knows you can put assets in your wife’s name or your daughter’s name.”

For now, he is happy to continue taunting Najib’s administration, and in his most recent column entry, he told the government to stop harassing other individuals with regards to funding him or another central figure in the Altantuya saga, the private investigator P. Balasubramaniam hired by Abdul Razak Baginda, a close associate of Najib’s who was being harassed by the Mongolian.

“Hey, no need to investigate the lawyers. The lawyers are not paying for private investigator P. Balasubramaniam’s expenses here in London... I just wanted it on record that Raja Petra Kamarudin is paying for Bala’s trip to London and Paris — so no need to harass anyone else,” he wrote.

PAS-DAP dispute does not affect opposition pact, says Anwar

PKR adviser Anwar Ibrahim said the dispute between PAS and DAP leaders over certain matters would not affect harmony in the opposition pact.

He said PAS, DAP and PKR had reached an understanding over policy matters involving administration, Islam as the federal religion and the position of the Syariah Court.

"There are differences in opinion over certain matters and these can be resolved through discussions," he said after opening a seminar on "New Hope for Malaysia" (Seminar Harapan Baru Untuk Malaysia - SEHARUM) 2010 for Terengganu PKR leaders, here, today.

He said the disagreement between PAS spiritual leader Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat and DAP chairman Karpal Singh over the Islamic state issue was deliberately raised by the opposition's enemies to create friction among the opposition allies.

"This issue had been there for 20 years now and it has not affected the opposition. We could see this from the results of the Kuala Terengganu and Sibu by-elections," he said, adding that a meeting involving the three parties was also held each week.

Anwar, who is also the Permatang Pauh MP, said the opposition was gearing its members in preparing for the next general election, including strengthening its position in Melaka, Negri Sembilan and Johor.

He said besides PKR, PAS and DAP were also stronger in these three states now compared to before the 2008 general election

Home Ministry sends show-cause letter to Harakah

Just a day after it was called in to be ‘reminded’ of its roles and responsibilities of a media, the Home Ministry has issued a show-cause letter for Harakah, the PAS owned official organ. According to Taufek Yahya, the chief editor of the publication, they are required to show-cause for violating the publication permit by the Home Ministry who sent the letter on July 7. They would have to explain why they failed to provide 8 copies of each of their edition to the ministry before distribution.

Taufek said “I was shocked because the things mentioned in the letter were not raised during the July 5 meeting. We do not want issues that are detrimental to Umno and BN to be seen as affecting national security. Mainstream newspapers have also been critical to Pakatan Rakyat (PR) but these were not classified as security threat. When I raised the matter, the ministry said they did not want to have a debate. In my opinion, the home ministry is under political pressure to act. I sympathise with the home ministry officials who have to face the pressure,”


Surely the pressure comes from UMNOPUTRAS ! Even though the reprimand already served,why is there a further need ? You see,even among the Ministry , they dont have common standard approach . How can the people trust the 1Malaysia ? Waste of public money to foot their salarly !

Federal Court says power to review own decision limited

The inherent power of the Federal Court to review its own decision is limited and strictly confined to procedural matters.

This was the majority ruling of a three-men Bench led by Federal Court judge Tan Sri Zulkefli Ahmad Makinudin in their grounds of judgment on the issue of the power of the Federal Court to review its own decision.

The matter was argued by parties in Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s appeal to obtain documents including the statements of his accuser, Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan, to assist him in preparation of his defence in his sodomy trial.

On Feb 25 this year, the quorum had unanimously dismissed Anwar’s appeal but notified parties in the appeal that they would supply the grounds for their decision at a later date.

Both Zulkefli and Datuk Heliliah Mohd Yusof took the view that the apex court could review its own decision under Rule 137 of the Rules of the Federal Court 1995 but its powers were confined to only procedural matters.

They held that the apex court could not invoke its inherent powers to review its own decision on the merits of the case.

Justice Tan Sri Wira Mohd Ghazali Mohd Yusoff, however, adopted a dissimilar stand, which was that Rule 137 could not be invoked at all by the court to review its own decision.

In his 10-page judgment, which was released to the media today, Zulkefli said it was clear that Anwar had intended to move the court to review the issues on their merits which was outside the purview of Rule 137.

He said the limited inherent powers conferred to the Federal Court under Rule 137 was to maintain the apex court’s character as a court of justice and to address injustice or abuse of the court’s process.

Rule 137 did not confer a new jurisdiction or a statutory jurisdiction, he added.

Heliliah, in her 72-page judgment, said a certain reserve of powers intrinsically remains with the Federal Court to review its own decision because the Federal Court was created by the Federal Constitution as a judicial organ at the apex of the judiciary.

“Hence by virtue of being at the apex, it is only the Federal Court that has to be the organ to deal with injustice or abuse of processes,” she said, adding that the object of Rule 137 was not to defeat finality.

Ghazali, in his 64-page judgment, said Rule 137 cannot be construed to mean that it conferred power upon the Federal Court to review, re-open, re-hear or re-visit, to reverse or set aside a judgment given in an appeal which had already been heard and disposed of.

Instead, he was of the view that the Federal Constitution and the Courts of Judicature Act did not confer the Federal Court a power to review its own judgment.

He said Rule 137 was not another tier of appeal, adding that it was of the public interest that there should also be a finality in deciding any dispute.

“I do not think that when the Rules Committee introduced Rule 137 in the Rules (Rules of the Federal Court), it was the intention to allow parties to apply for a review of an earlier decision of this court in the same action by exercising a purported inherent power.

“It would be unfortunate if this court utilises Rule 137 to allow a panel of equal standing to an earlier panel to hear and rule on contentions that the decisions of the earlier panel was wrong or incorrect and that the earlier panel had made an erroneous decision,” he said.

Anwar had filed for a review to set aside the Federal Court’s own decision on Jan 29 this year to turn down his appeal for the documents.

Apart from the witness statements of Mohd Saiful, he also wants the examination notes of Dr Osman Abdul Hamid from Pusrawi Hospital, statements by condominium owner Hassanuddin Abdul Hamid, and those of the three doctors from Kuala Lumpur Hospital (KLH), a chemist’s notes and medical reports and CCTV footage of the condominium at the alleged time.

Anwar, 63, is on trial for allegedly sodomising Mohd Saiful, 24, his former aide, at a condominium in Bukit Damansara, Kuala Lumpur, on June 26, 2008. The trial is set to resume on July 19.


What they say , at the end of the day only DOLLARS and CENTS that counts , we are paid by BE END so the LAWs applies upon the request of their BOSS ma.

We are not leading Umno S’gor roadshow – Zulkifli and Zahrain

Zulkifli Noordin and Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohd Hashim, the independent Members of Parliament have both denied that they will be leading the road-show organized by the Selangor Umno which was to clarify and expose the ‘lies’ spread by the opposition alliance PR (Pakatan Rakyat). Umno Selangor had announced that they will be launching the road-show to clarify to the people the ‘lies’ which the PR claims.

Zulkifli said “This is unethical reporting of which there is a hidden, twisted agenda. We know because of the revelations we have made, the little Pharoahs have resorted to twisting facts. Even the RM2 million accusations by the Opposition Leader cannot be answered. This is not a news report, it’s an analysis. The statements are not true,”

Meanwhile Zahrain said “I have not met the Umno Selangor information chief. I have no interests in Umno ceramahs. We have also criticised the government in several occasions. Zahrain has been very vocal about Sime Darby. We are taking an independent position. It’s a shame that some people have their own twisted agendas to serve their own political masters. Konsensus Bebas appreciates the work that reporters do but do not use dirty political tactics. This is not news, it is an accusation,” said the Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP.”

This came in the wake of reports that Abd Shukor Idrus, the Selangor Umno Information Chief saying that both Zulkifli and Zahrain is set to join the roadshow where he said “Zulkifli and Zahrain would be able to open the public’s eyes to the “lies” created by Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in his bid to realise his personal goals. Only they know what happened, they used to be in the party, such as Bayan Baru MP Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim and Bandar Baru Kulim MP Zulkifli Nordin,”\


So much money to do roadshows... you don't need roadshows to prove opposition lies... just do your part with honestly and it will prove whatever lies being thrown at you... who will fund the roadshows?.. the hotel accommodation?.. food and beverages in expensive restaurants?.. the car / airplane ride for roadshows?.. etc?.. tax payer's money right?.. moronic money wasting efforts..

pkr, dap and pas should also do a roadshow and expose the lies the government has been telling.
From altantuya to missing engine..!!
From floatmarine to kugan..!!
We definitely have more to say then umno/bn. Play the same game and play the blame game too.

Najib reaches out to settlers over inaccurate Felda report

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak today urged Felda settlers not to feel disheartened by the inaccurate media report regarding the financial health of the land development authority.

“I find this deliberate misreporting an affront to these hardworking Malaysians and a blatant attempt to discredit the government’s efforts to improve our quality of life.

“They tarnish not only the reputation of Felda, but also of all the hard-working individuals who are part of this institution,” he said in his blog .

Najib, who described Felda as “one that I hold dear for what it represents in this country’s history and for what it has meant to generations of Malaysians whose sweat, blood and tears have transformed it into what it is today”, expressed his frustration that until today, “no apology has been forthcoming to redress this insult.”

“And Felda is within its rights to take legal measures to protect the integrity of the organisation,” he said.

Najib was commenting on the front-page article in Suara Keadilan, the PKR official organ, titled “Felda Bangkrap” in its June 22-29 issue.

The prime minister said Felda has RM1.3 billion in cash reserves and RM4 billion in shares of various listed companies, acquired with an initial investment of only RM844 million.

The commercial plantations owned by Felda are estimated to be worth at least RM10 billion, and a sum of RM2.4 billion was spent on replanting to improve Felda’s palm oil and rubber yield.

He said last year alone, Felda paid RM26 million in tithes (zakat).

“In a state of bankruptcy, an organisation would not be required to pay zakat, only further disproving the accusations,” he said.

Najib also said in order to grow as an organisation, Felda must be prepared to explore and embark on new business and development frontiers.

“This is why a Memorandum of Understanding was signed to build a strategic partnership for Felda to become Malaysia’s largest beef and milk producer. A sum of RM603 million has been set aside by Felda as interest-free loans on offer to its settlers.

“Felda is also committed to improving education opportunities, evident from the newly-opened MRSM Felda Trolak, which was wholly funded by Felda,” he added.

Najib said these investments and expenditure were made to benefit the settlers, and Malaysians in general, “but allegations regarding misappropriation of funds and lavish spending attempt to cast aspersions on these efforts and impede our work.”

To the Felda settlers, the prime minister advised them to continue “to do great work for your family, your community, and your country”.

“We will continue to find ways to improve the standard of living in your communities and to ensure your efforts will be duly rewarded,” he added.


Wow..sure or not 844mil becomes 4 billion. US dollar exchange to Rupiah or what? Over 400% appreciation. Come on man, we are not stupid, where got such deal in this world. Please list detail transaction to show me wrong.

Now all these UMNOPutras really believe that they are supposed they have a right to rule over the "stupid '' Malays.

All these useless UMNO leaders are not going to stop sucking the country dry anytime soon as they really believe the Malays are stupid.

No request made yet to extradite RPK

Whitehall has yet to receive any application from Putrajaya to extradite fugitive blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin although the Malaysian government has hinted that the United Kingdom has refused to co-operate over the issue.

Malaysian government officials familiar with the extradition process said the Home Ministry has been unable to make the application because his alleged offence is not a crime in the UK.

“No official request has been made to bring back Raja Petra,” a source told The Malaysian Insider.

The British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur has refused to comment specifically on Raja Petra’s case but issued a statement on Wednesday about the extradition request procedure.

“An extradition request from one Commonwealth country to another is governed by the London Scheme for Extradition within the Commonwealth. This contains a Dual Criminality Rule,” said the High Commission statement.

“A person sought will only be extradited for an extradition offence. For the purpose of this scheme, an extradition offence is an offence however described which is punishable in the requesting and requested country by imprisonment for two years or a greater penalty,” it added.

Questions on Malaysia’s ability to bring back Raja Petra were first raised by PKR supreme council member Datuk Zaid Ibrahim who claimed that Putrajaya was unable to state what offence the Malaysia Today news portal editor had committed.

Earlier this week, Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein indirectly suggested that the British government has not agreed to extradite Raja Petra.

Under the British Extradition Act 2003, the requesting state has to submit an extradition request to the secretary of state who would issue a certificate for a hearing before a judge.

Apart from making sure that the person’s alleged conduct has to be a crime in both countries, the judge must also be satisfied that the extradition would not lead to violation of human rights under the British Human Rights Act 1998.

Raja Petra, who was facing a criminal defamation trial, was given a discharge not amounting to an acquittal in November last year by the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court after the police failed to serve a warrant of arrest.

He was believed to have fled the country in May last year after he was charged with defaming Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, the wife of the prime minister.

The member of the Selangor royal house had allegedly published an article linking the murder of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu to Rosmah.


BN don't waste your time in this extradiction - another waste of taxpayers money. Whatever is it, BN is fully responsible for all this mishap in law. First we have to look at ourself to see what is lacking in us. If we ourselves contradict with other country in term of law - then don't talk about extradiction.

How to extradite RPK from Britain? RPK has not committed any crime. Only in the eyes of UMNO leaders, he is a criminal because he wrote about the wrong doings of the corrupted people. British would respect the freedom of expression . All the hue and cry will make UMNO leaders look like the criminals, not RPK.

the rule of law exist in the no monkey business...the waving of the kris works for jaguh kampongs...and ironically...the monkeys are on our pay roll...and they treat you as like monkeys...and all of them are multi millionaires and billionaires on the small wage we pay as have to be a monkey to live among them as they treat you as one...RPK cannot be extradited as the police monkeys have to produce cogent evidence...not like the "saiful statement" that no one can see...and the monkey judges will not be able to stand up in a magistrates court here to make a bail application for stealing they do not understand or capable to articulate the law of "theft"...and the biggest of these monkeys is chief justice of malaysia...IGP of malaysia...and so on and so is sad and frustrating....

PM causing more confusion in sports betting license issue

It seems that the sports betting license issue will not cool down. At least not yet as the latest written reply from the prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in parliament is causing further confusion. The question was posted by Datuk Mahfuz Omar, the Pokok Sena Member of Parliament who requested for the list of terms and conditions issued to Ascot Sports Sdn Bhd when the government ‘awarded’ the license (which was withdrawn eventually).

Najib’s response was “For your information, the government has not released any licence for sports betting for the 2010 World Cup. Hence, the issue on the expected revenue from the World Cup bets does not rise. However, the government offered a re-issuance of the licence to Ascot Sports for bookie services (not including the 2010 World Cup) since the company was given prior approval to conduct the activity. Hence, the government is of the opinion that if the re-issuance of the licence is to be reconsidered, it would be only fair for Ascot Sports to be given priority based on its experience in the industry.”

Mahfuz said “His answer should reflect the government’s stand, as recently announced by Najib. Although I asked about it, why did his response come out like this? What is his real stand? Najib’s response was unclear and that it only raised further questions on whether the government still had plans to approve the sports betting licence but just not for the ongoing World Cup. This means that the issue of World Cup does not rise. The question now is that, the licence is not given for the World Cup... but after that? Perhaps for the English Premier League? Or Piala Malaysia? Does it mean that the government will issue the licence to Ascot Sports for other events and not the World Cup? I want an honest explanation from the government on this. Furthermore, the issue here is also whether the decision should come from the Cabinet or from the Umno Supreme Council? The Prime Minister had made the announcement only after the Umno Supreme Council meeting and not following a discussion in the Cabinet. Does that mean the licence is still on? Or is the Umno Supreme Council more important or higher in status than the Cabinet?”


this is known outcome, the sports betting licence will be given as Vincent Tan is an UMNO Putra. Malaysia Boleh!!

PM said : ' U help me & I help u'
Tan said to PM : 'U help me & I pay u'
PM said to his wife : ' Tan pay me & I pay u'
His wife said to PM : ' U dont pay me & I'll C4 you!!! '

Very easy to get lesen with this formula...

Speaker refuses to cite Najib over Sibu ‘deal’

Najib addresses a crowd in Rejang Park, near Sibu, May 15, 2010.

Dewan Rakyat Speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin has refused to refer Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to the Parliamentary Rights and Privileges Committee over remarks made during the recent Sibu by-election.

He said today the remarks were made outside Parliament and not within his jurisdiction.

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) MPs had attempted to use Standing Orders 36(12) to refer Najib to the powerful committee for “misleading” the Dewan Rakyat over his RM5 million promise made to people in Rejang Park, Sibu, which was caught on video.

“I am not a judge... it is not within my jurisdiction. Under Standing Orders 23(1)(i) any statements made outside the Dewan Rakyat cannot be used as a reason or basis to refer someone to the committee,” said the Speaker.

However, Pandikar’s reply prompted Gombak MP Azmin Ali to question why PR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was referred to the disciplinary committee over his allegations linking APCO Worldwide to Zionist connections.

“If that is the basis of the Speaker, why then was Permatang Pauh dragged to face the committee over statements made outside the Dewan but was used by the same Dewan to punish Permatang Pauh?” asked Azmin.

Pandikar then said that Anwar’s referral to the committee was brought up by a minister (Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz) under Standing Orders 27(3).

He said that if a minister moved to refer someone, then “that would also be the government’s position.”

Later in a press conference, Bandar Kuching MP Chong Chien Jien claimed Pandikar’s decision clearly showed the “double-standards” practised in Parliament.

“The PM lied in his written reply when he said the government did not promise any projects during the Sibu by-election. The media caught him making his RM 5 million promise in Rejang Park,” said the DAP MP.

The Najib administration revealed last month that it had approved 107 projects and programmes, collectively worth RM37.7 million, during the recent Sibu by-election.

However, the government denied that the approval for the projects was done because of the Sibu by-election and in order to attract votes for Barisan Nasional.


Pandikar works for Najib, not for Parliament. It's so obvious here.

Najib has lied twice now, the latest about the RM5million Sibu case.
Does lying more than one time makes a person a compulsive lier?
I was taught it does. What say you, guys?

Those speakers just have their welfare upgraded, you think they are going to bite back their good boss, most likely those upgradings are part of their blackmailing made to their boss.

This is 1 Malaysia law. If the Minister refer Pandikar will become a judge immediately. If M.P. refer then pendikar will rescue himself with aboundant of reason. This is what Pandikar always mention that sooner or later we are going to have world class Parliament. I think with this decision we are just short of 1% towards WORLD CLASS PARLIAMENT.

with people like pandikar, no wonder the real killers of teoh and the mongolian girl DIED IN MYSTERY !!! with people like pandikar, who needs GOD !!!???

pandikar makes sabahan looks really stupid !!! so pk, do your extra OT in east malaysia to make the east people becoming smart AGAIN !!!!

Khairy calls Wee Choo Keong a ‘Chinese Ibrahim Ali’

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin today called Wee Choo Keong a “substandard MP” and described the PKR turned independent lawmaker as the Chinese version of Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali.

Khairy tweeted his remarks while Choo Keong was questioning Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Liew Vui Keong during the debate on the Subordinate Courts (Amendment) Bill 2010 in Parliament.

“Quality of Wee Chee Keong’s (sic) interventions are extremely poor. I think he’s a substandard MP,” said Khairy in his tweet to MCA Youth chief Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.

“I think he’s the Chinese version of Ib Ali (Ibrahim Ali),” he added.

Khairy was making an apparent reference to the similarities between Choo Keong and Ibrahim because both had been members of various political parties in their careers.

The fiery Perkasa chief was recently embroiled in bitter verbal spats with Khairy and Ka Siong recently over Malay rights.

Khairy also expressed hope that MCA would not take in Choo Keong as a member.

Ka Siong replied, also via Twitter, that Choo Keong could never “rejoin” the party.

Ka Siong claimed that Choo Keong was an MCA member in the 1980s and that he staged a “piket in front of MCA” and quit the party after that.

“He rejoins MCA? No way,” tweeted Ka Siong.

The former PKR MP turned independent lawmaker is well known as a former DAP man.

He was elected as Bukit Bintang MP on the party’s ticket in 1990.

Choo Keong was unceremoniously kicked out of DAP in 1998 after being accused of damaging the party’s image and later went on to form the insignificant Malaysian Democratic Party (MDP).

The DAP renegade then joined PKR before Election 2008 and went on to win the Wangsa Maju seat with a slim majority of 150.

In May this year, the Wangsa Maju MP left PKR to become an independent, citing disappointment with the party’s leadership’s handling of the Selangor sand-mining scandal and said that “little Napoleons and trendy leftists” were taking control of PKR.


Ibrahim Ali is the biggest loser here. Being used as a benchmark for all things ridiculous is possibly the worst legacy one can leave behind.

Harakah called in by Home Ministry, ‘reminded’ of roles and responsibilities

Harakah, PAS’ official organ has been called in by the Home Ministry in a week where publications of political parties don the headlines. The editor of the paper was called in an was reminded of their ‘roles and responsibilities as a publisher’. There were no discussion of any specific articles which were published. According to Harakah’s website, “The intention of meeting was for the ministry to advise the publisher to follow the guidelines outlined in the permit. Among these is for the publisher to provide eight copies of each issue to the ministry as soon as it is printed.”

Taufek Yahya, the editor met with Datuk Abdul Rahim Mohd Tadzi, the deputy secretary-general and Datuk Zaitun Ab Samad, the Publications and al-Quran text controls division secretary. He said “Harakah respects that the Home Ministry has a role to play but urged the ministry to respect the publisher in turn. The ministry should respect Harakah's role as an opposition organ and as a source of alternative news. The ministry had urged Harakah to be “more careful” while reporting “sensitive issues” like the sports betting licence, Jemaah Islamiah and the Federal Land Development Authority. By right, the ministry should know how to differentiate between national security issues and issues that undermine the ruling coalition. They are two different issues completely. The mainstream media reports negatively on Pakatan Rakyat as well as issues that go against the Pakatan-led governments, but this is not considered a security threat. The ministry should consider having a look at that too.”


Idiots !!! Charity begins at home. Rope in all your goons first especially TDM and Perkasa before telling others. Oh, we find lots of racialist news/articles from BN controlled radio/tv/newspaper and no action or warning ever issued !

When is the Home Ministry going to call in the editors of the Utusan Melayu and Perkasa's publication to remind them of their proper roles as responsible publications.They won't I suppose as the Home Minister has no guts and is a racist who does not know whether he is coming or going

GE 13 and he will be out .

Ezam claims to have proof that Mkini and Star were undermining royal institution

Senator Ezam Mohd Noor has claimed that he has proof against local media The Star and online news media MKini for undermining the royal institution when they reported that the foreign workers on the construction of the new Royal Palace were unpaid for up to 3 months. He claims that "I have all the necessary evidence to back my allegations, and I will hand it over to the Home Ministry and the Council of Rulers soon,"

Ezam claims that both the media have been giving prominence to the opposition parties for their reports and that there were "evil manipulative elements". He added that “Star and Mkini were attempting to incite a public outcry over a federal government project by highlighting the alleged plight of foreign labourers at the new national palace currently under construction. Malaysiakini called the project the 'palace of tears' while Star is in cahoots with top opposition leaders who compared the cost of the new palace to a theme park in Europe,"

Zul Noordin lost PAS membership in 2008, says sec-gen

Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP Zulkifli Noordin stopped being a PAS member when he joined PKR in 2008, said PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali today.

Mustafa said the Islamist party’s constitution provides for automatic dismissal when a member joins another political party.

“According to the PAS constitution, once you join another party, you lose the membership,” he said.

Zulkifli claimed yesterday that he was still a PAS member despite having been sacked from PKR in March for breaching party discipline.

He added that PAS should at least provide him with an official notification letter to indicate that his membership had been revoked.

“There is no need to inform him, he was automatically sacked,” said Mustafa when asked if Zulkifli has been informed.

Zulkifli claimed he has been in PAS since 1997.

In 2004, he contested in Kuala Langat under the Islamist party’s banner but lost to Barisan Nasional’s Datuk Dr Shafie Salleh.

He joined PKR in 2008 when he was fielded in Kulim-Bandar Baharu, where he defeated former Umno Youth deputy chief, Datuk Abdul Aziz Sheikh Fadzir.

Since his admission into the Dewan Rakyat, Zulkifli has become one of the strongest critics of PKR policies, which he claimed had ignored Islamic principles.

He also openly opposed the party’s decision to support the local Christians’ demand to use the word “Allah” to refer to God in the national language, which led to his sacking from PKR.

Upon his dismissal from PKR, all three PAS vice-presidents — Datuk Mahfuz Omar, Salahuddin Ayub and Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man — declared that Zulkifli would not be accepted into PAS for the sake of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) unity.

Zulkifli is now part of the Independent Consensus, a grouping made up of former PKR MPs Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim (Bayan Baru), Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal), Mohsin Fadzli Samsuri (Bagan Serai) and Wee Choo Keong (Wangsa Maju).


I think Zul has been out of the news for too long and is getting jealous of all the publicity that Ibrahim ali and Zharain are getting. So any statement, frivolous or 'tidak relevan'' it may be, is good to get his name into the newspapers and websites again.

Looks like Zul Noordin needs to go back to law school. What kind of a lawyer is he if he does not know the party by-law? Just being a member is not enough one needs to know the by-laws of the party he is serving. I wonder from which law university he graduated?

he knows GE13 is coming...and his popularity is going down, even him cannot beat Zahrain in leading the frog last option is to emulate Ibrahim Ali formula...beg from the Pas to give him a seat.

Not only him alone desperate, other frogs too. wee chee keong trying to make his own publicity again against PKR Tian Chua, what to do, he has lost his appeal on Bkt. Bintang MP pension scheme, now he has nothing left old man. so trying to get get back his creditability back from the voters.

Zul Noordin now insists he is a PAS member

In a bizarre revelation today, independent MP Zulkifli Noordin claimed he is still a PAS member despite having been sacked from PKR earlier this year for breaking party discipline.

“I have neither left the party nor retracted my membership,” said the lawyer who stood on the PKR ticket for the Kulim-Bandar Baharu seat which he won in Election 2008.

He added that PAS should at least provide him with an official notification letter to indicate that his membership had been revoked.

“I have not received any official notification from the party either,” he told The Malaysian Insider in Parliament today.

“You cannot just remove a person as a member however. You have to give him a fair hearing. Especially based on the principles of PAS being an Islamic party,” said Zulkifli (picture), who has joined four other ex-PKR MPs in a new parliamentary grouping called Konsensus Bebas.

He laughed when asked if he ever plans to check the status of his membership with the party.

“Why should I? The onus is on them to check my status. Why should I need to? Perhaps they have revoked my membership but they never informed me and they never gave me a hearing,” he said, adding that he has been a member of PAS since 1997.

Since his sacking, PAS leaders have said that the party would not accept Zulkifli into its ranks and would respect its Pakatan Rakyat coalition partner’s decision to sack him.

Zulkifli, who was sacked in March, made the proclamation on his PAS membership when he defended the Islamist party during a press conference in Parliament today.

When commenting on PAS’s alleged involvement together with PKR in harbouring both private investigator P. Balasubramaniam and controversial blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin, Zulkifli claimed that there were a few “Anwarinas” in the Islamist party.

“I would not go to that level to speak about PAS. I am a PAS member. But it looks like PAS is not taking any action in this matter.

“There is this group of people whom we call the Anwarinas. They are Anwar’s supporters. They worship him. They play the role of destroying PAS,” he alleged.

Zulkifli said these detractors did not regard PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang as their president but revered (PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim as their chief. Coincidentally, Zulkifli represented Anwar in his first sodomy trial in 1998 but left his client this year after he was sacked from PKR.

He called on the PAS leadership to take action against these “Anwarinas”.

“Return the confidence to the Muslims. PAS is a good party. They fight for Islamic principles and they have not strayed from their path,” he said.

He added that PAS had continued to remain strong but the “Anwarinas” were attempting to destroy the party.


I suspect he is among those frogs got cheated by najib, most probably all these frogs are stuck in the middle of no where now, because najib or his agents never fulfill their promises to these frogs, that is RM2M or contracts. If my guessing is correct, then you frogs must step out and tell the truth how you all are been cheated

No, PAS would never accept someone like you. You are a two headed snake, romanced by Najib in New York, now licking his boots! Tak malu punya manusia, sacked by PAS and PKR, and now saying you are a PAS member again. Please berambuslah! Go apple polish Najib.

Pakatan do not need such jokers/frogs/idiots like you. For goodness sake, join UMNO! Do not try to drag RPK into your cause to gain some publicity! Your skull cap is too tight for any grey matters to grow!

Zul challenges Ngeh to surrender datukship

A heated debate broke out in Parliament today with independent MP Zulkifli Noordin challenging DAP MP Datuk Ngeh Koo Ham to surrender his state award back to the Perak Sultan.

The dogged Kulim-Bandar Baharu MP who was recently sacked from PKR for indiscipline, accused Ngeh of being two-faced when he allegedly criticised Sultan Azlan Shah but at the same time, accepted the award that carries a "Datuk" title from the Ruler.

“I challenge you now to surrender your Datukship to the Perak Sultan. Do not play this two-faced politics. First you curse and swear at the Sultan but yet, this latukship (Datukship) you mau (want),” Zulkifli said, mocking Ngeh.

In his own defence, Ngeh stood up to retaliate and denied to the House that he had even cursed at the Perak Sultan.

“This is a blatant lie. You are lying. You are lying. I never spoke out against the Sultan. And since when I was the one who asked for this award? It was given to me,” he said.

Zulkifli, refusing to listen, insisted that Ngeh, who is from Perak, had often insulted the Sultan.

“You call yourself a Muslim. I never lied. I respect Islam but I condemn Muslims like you,” the usually calm Ngeh shouted in response, losing his cool.

An irritated-looking Zulkifli then stood up to continue his tirade against Ngeh, accusing the latter of being a follower of PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

“Go and meet your boss. But who is your boss? I do not know. Is it Permatang Pauh (Anwar) or Ipoh Timor (DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang)?.

“Whenever the courts rule against your people, you start to curse the Sultan, you curse the system. But when it rules in your favour, you are very happy and you say – manyak bagus ini mahkamah (this court is very good). Stop talking this two-faced politics. I think you should respect your own self,” he countered.

Ngeh had earlier stood up to speak in defence of PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim when Zulkifli, in debating the Subordinate Courts (Amendment) Bill 2010, had accused his former boss of deliberately delaying his sodomy trial.

Zulkifli had yelled at Ngeh to sit down, even as the latter scolded him for speaking against a person who was not physically present to defend himself.

“I did not give you the right of way,” Zulkifli argued.

Ngeh spat back, “If you do not want to give me the right of way to speak, then say so. Do it right.”

Deputy Speaker Datuk Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar lambasted Zulkifli for failing to inform Ngeh that he was not allowed to cut in and speak.

At the Parliament lobby later in the evening, Ngeh said there was no reason for him to return his Datukship to the Perak Sultan.

“Like I mentioned in the first place, I have never insulted the Sultan. I was also given the award, I did not ask for it.

“Furthermore, the Sultan has never said he would revoke my Datukship,” he said.

He further slammed Zulkifli for accusing him of being a subordinate to Anwar just because he had stood up to defend his fellow colleague in the opposition.

“Whe he had said about Anwar was all lies. When he spoke of integrity... he claimed that Anwar was deliberately trying to prolong his trial when he attempted to get key documents from the prosecution in his sodomy trial.

“He said it was deliberate procrastination but Anwar only wanted information. He was exercising his right,” said Ngeh.

Zulkifli's accusation that Ngeh had insulted the Sultan stemmed from the Perak crisis last year when the Perak Pakatan Rakyat government fell to the hands of the Barisan Nasional.

At the time, the Perak PR had urged the Sultan to approve the dissolution of the state assembly to pave the way for snap elections in the state.

Despite their call, the Sultan had refused to do so and the PR government fell when three of its assemblymen defected to become BN-friendly independents.


Zul you need report on papers everyday to keep you a life. Sorry to say GE 13 is on the way. Zul is one of the candidate to lose deposit.

Zul. You are trying to get some cheap publicity, it seems? Hey, you are elected to bring and debate national issues, bodoh.

Another thing, I understand that there is a special room in Tanjung Rambutan reserved for a Zulkifli Nordin, is it for you? Your eyes does not look good, you really do not look normal. Just look at your picture when you claimed you are a PAS member yesterday.

Please go to Tanjong Rambutan, perhaps your mental strength is being severely tested?

You stand of PKR ticket and then you bailed out - you 2 headed snake. You were aligned to anwar in the past - now you cursed him. You twisted tongue........ why you barked like a mad dog to get attention. U should resign and stand for election again - if you dare. Dun go around daring people like a hero - when u are a coward. Shameless Muslim!

Muhyiddin: BN must think like the opposition

Umno deputy president Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin told the Barisan Nasional (BN) to act like the opposition and recapture the states it lost in Election 2008.

The deputy prime minister stressed that BN members must be proactive and be willing to make sacrifices.

“You must take affirmative steps because they are the steps taken by Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to tarnish our image. They spread lies through the Internet which have influenced many and caused them to lose their trust in us,” he told delegates at the Lembah Pantai Umno division meeting.

Muhyiddin (picture) pointed out that BN and Umno had leaders comparable to those in PR who are now making a name for themselves after it won four states and 82 federal seats in the March 2008 elections.

“What is so special about Nurul Izzah? What does she have that Datuk Raja Nong Chik doesn’t?

“We must be like the opposition. If you think you are the government then you act like the government. If you think opposition then you are willing to make sacrifices and face the challenge,” he said.

Muhyiddin stressed that BN must return to the grassroots and convince the voters.

“It is time for us to go to the grassroots to face the problem and challenge them. We must take the upper position, be upfront and not behind. So that the people will know that we are willing to take the challenge and convince them. This we have to do because time is not always on our side.

“Historically, Lembah Pantai is ours. We are only lending it to them now. We want it back but it is not easy. It will be difficult but the rakyat wants to see if you are really sincere,” he said.

He also said Umno delegates must ensure that BN is not an option but a must for the country’s electorate.

Muhyiddin stressed that BN must prove to the public that it will and continue to be relevant.

“What we must ensure in facing the coming general election is to show to the rakyat that Barisan Nasional is a viable party.

“We want our party to be more viable compared to Pakatan Rakyat. We have been tested numerous times. The voters would not have voted for us if there weren’t any truths in our policies. If they did not believe in BN, then they would not have voted for us,” he said.

The DPM said the major problem affecting BN was not its policies but public perception towards the ruling coalition.

“There is a perception that Barisan Nasional’s policies are not suitable with the current situation. Perception is very important in politics. Why is there the perception that Umno is not like before? Umno is not what it used to be. That Umno is no longer fighting for Malay issues and BN is no longer united,” he said.

Muhyiddin added that Umno must defend and challenge those who question BN’s policies.

“We must protect BN’s policies because people are beginning to challenge them. They accuse us of not serving minorities.

“Because of that we are faced with the question of perception. The voter’s judgment will be influenced and will not vote for us. They do not want equality to be said but be seen and implemented,” he said.

He also pointed that BN was not a racist party.

“We are not a racial party, but we represent different races. Our policies are not discriminatory but we consider the interests of all races.

“Pakatan Rakyat accused us of not distributing the economic cake fairly but BN wants to bring development to all races. However, some races are faster than others, that is why we treat each race differently,” he added.


LOL! What a DPM from fairy tales land. The more he make statement, the more my common sense get twisted (blur). DPM of self made believed. From what i sense, the PR told (try to expose) the TRUTH about BN dirt while BN lied (or deny) about the PR's TRUTH told about them.

As long as BN thinks along this line, we know that they will bring this country to doom. Economic equation cannot have race in it. Affirmative action cannot be based on race. It's all based on market forces and needs.

We cannot continue to put this government on the job if they have the wrong idea about how things work.

This is the same party man from the same party that ridicules everything the PR tries to do from Penang to Selangor..Everything the PR Govt did was wrong..Now this guy is saying UMNO must emulate the PR? What kind of leadership are we seeing here? Is this the best we can do for our DPM?

What is the difference between Nurul and Nong Chik? Good looks for one,brains for two,integrity?? I guess our esteemed DPM is too blind to see. He and his party is so way of the 'reservation' they are drawing blanks everywhere they turn. Sad sight but delightful nonetheless.....

Can UMNO goons & BN goons be clean, free of corruption and not cheat the poor Malay under the disguise of the NEP or NEM whatever name they called it? First clean up the Judicary, MACC, Police Force by removing all these corrupt peoples in all these institution first! Can't why? Cos UMNO and its goons are in the same boat as all these peoples they appointed to the institutions which are supposed to protect the constitution and rakyat but in reverse victimsed rakyat and make the constitution into a BIG MESS!!!!

In order to like an opposition:

a. Constantly harassed by the MACC, Police, RELA, Home Ministry n what have u.
b. Permit to rallies also must not be issued.
c. MSM must deny u any coverage.
d. All monies must come from the ppl collected during ceramah intermission.

:D too lazy to think of the rest..

GAS II stormed by Samy Vellu’s men

Chaos erupted at the Gerakan Anti-Samy Vellu gathering here when the event was rudely interrupted by about 50 people, believed to be supporters of the party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

The group turned up before the event was scheduled to begin at about 1pm and began discouraging people from entering Dewan Dato Hamzah, where the gathering was being held

Just before 2pm, a shouting match ensued outside the hall between the two factions and a minor scuffle followed when several men, engaged in a heated debate, began to shove each other around.

At 2pm, the rowdy group of Samy Vellu supporters pushed their way into the hall, shouting at the top of their lungs.

They are believed to be led by three key men — Selangor MIC information chief L. Siva Subramaniam, and two branch chairmen, one known as “Taman Maznah” Chandran, and another as Dharmalingam, a former Klang MIC division chief who currently sits as a director in the Port Klang Authority, an appointment made by Samy Vellu himself.

“Don’t you dare speak of MIC. Don’t you dare utter Samy Vellu’s name. Get out of this hall, stop this gathering,” they shouted as they made their way to the stage.

When they clashed with the organisers and supporters of the GAS gathering, another shouting match broke out.

More pushing and shoving were witnessed as the fight heated up quickly.

GAS supporters, led by sacked leaders V. Mugilan, K. P. Samy, G. Kumar Aamaan, former Petaling Jaya Barat MIC chief V. Subramaniam or “Bharat Maniam”, began yelling at the group to get out.

At one point, Samy, together with Kumar Aamaan, who was holding up a book called “The Life of Mahatma Ghandi”, began shouting “Ahimsa” which means a peaceful leadership style.

The chants grew louder as the GAS supporters who had begun piling into the hall, swelled to about 1,000 people.

Chandran, who was one of the most vocal of the group, then yelled at Samy, claiming that the latter had not done a single thing for the Indian community.

“If you had won in the elections and became an MP, would you still be here now? You have not given 5sen to the community,” he said.

Ignoring him, Samy then called the media up onstage for a press conference.

“We are not here to start trouble. This is a peaceful gathering but this is Samy Vellu’s style... he called in his gangsters,” he said.

He noted that they were willing to stop the gathering if the group of troublemakers insisted on causing havoc.

“We are all law-abiding citizens, we do not want violence. We will listen to the advice of the police,” he said.

Samy also called upon the Prime Minister to take note of Samy Vellu’s gangster-like leadership.

“He should act against these hooligans. They are the liabilities of the Barisan Nasional.

“We, on the other hand, just want peace. We want to submit our memorandum to the PM and call for an early retirement for Samy Vellu,” he said.

He also challenged Samy Vellu to declare publicly that Aimst University and MIED belonged to the Indian community and had not been “hijacked” by him.

“We will meet with the PM soon on this and on the Maika issue. There are over 60,000 shareholders, now only the PM can help,” he said.

Mugilan agreed that Samy Vellu was practising “gangster-style” politics and would be the BN’s greatest stumbling block in the next general election.

“This is how he controls the Indian community — with his gangsters.

“We do not pay our supporters to come but yet, they turn up in droves.

“So long as Samy Vellu is MIC president, the Indians will not support the BN. He is just a senile man,” he said.

At about 2.15pm, a group of policemen walked into the hall after they were informed that there were troublemakers attempting to disrupt the event.

The police spoke to the group of Samy Vellu supporters for several minutes before informing the GAS organisers that they could proceed with their event.

They however noted that the rowdy group would be allowed to stay in the hall for they had refused to leave.

When the shouting continued, however, at least half of the rowdy group were ushered out of the hall.

The three main leaders in the group of Samy Vellu’s supporters remained behind with a few of their men flanking them.

The event continued with a few speeches from the organisers but was continuously disrupted by insults thrown at them.

The din in the hall was too loud to hear what the sacked leaders were saying.

Despite this, GAS supporters cheered on cue at every punchline.

The tension in the air was almost palpable but the police kept a watchful eye on the crowd and was quick to lead away those who became too rowdy with their words.

At about 3.10pm, the function was declared over. No untoward incidences were reported.
Chaos erupted at the Gerakan Anti-Samy Vellu gathering here when the event was rudely interrupted by about 50 people, believed to be supporters of the party president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu.

The group turned up before the event was scheduled to begin at about 1pm and began discouraging people from entering Dewan Dato Hamzah, where the gathering was being held.

Mugilan told  that GAS II had been successful due to the large turnout.

“We will keep fighting. We will keep coming up with more ideas and make sure Samy Vellu steps down as president soon,” he said.

He acknowledged that the MIC president had received a strong show of support from the party’s Youth, Wanita, Putera and Puteri wings during the launch of their annual general meeting earlier but insisted that this was because of their fear of Samy Vellu.

“He is a dictator. All who oppose him get sacked. They are afraid of him.

“I received many SMSes from our supporters who were in the AGMs just now and told me what happened,” he said.

Mugilan would not commit to a third GAS gathering but gave his assurance that the GAS efforts would continue.

All four GAS leaders were summarily expelled from the party when they dared to speak out against Samy Vellu, who has ruled the MIC for 31 years now.

The former Works Minister had announced recently that he would only step down by September next year, ahead of his term of expiration in May 2012, but this did not sit well with many party leaders who had wanted him to leave during the party’s AGM this July 10.


I really don't care whatever happens to Mugilan nor Samy Vellu. Let samy continue, and mugilan convert and join Umno

This is the Tamil movie style - the most hated "Pannaiyar" sending his "Adiyals" (paid gangsters) to create trouble. However V.Mugilan is the Hero and Samyvelu is the villain.

Those in India who aspire to become "Villians" in Tamil movies must come to Malaysia and get real life training from "Semi Value".

I feel like as if we have gone back to stone age from such an act. This only reinforce my opinion that MIC definitely need a leadership change in order for our indian friend improve. If M. Gandhi see this, i can only feel how sad he will be.

Where is the freedom of speech if people are not allowed to hold peaceful gatherings. Vellu Samy's supporters have shown how Samy runs the party. It only makes more Malaysians especially the Indian community hate MIC and BN. Samy has not settled the Maika issue. He has become a liability to MIC and BN. Better resign fast before your are thrown out.

Useless PDRM. Why should Samy's gangsters be allowed to remain at a private venue? They are trespassers. Arrest the a$$hole$! Looks like PDRM also afraid of Samy's gangsters. Useless!

BN needs 20,000 new voters to reclaim Lembah Pantai

Lembah Pantai Umno chief Raja Datuk Nong Chik Raja Zainal Abidin said today Barisan Nasional (BN) needs 20,000 new members who are registered to vote in the constituency to regain the federal seat it lost in Election 2008.

“I have only 8,000 soldiers. How many soldiers can MIC and MCA give me? This is the current situation, we do not have enough soldiers, if the captain goes alone then everybody will die.

“If we have no power, then what medals can I give? Even if we are ready, there is still more that needs to be done. We need to register more voters and double our efforts until we can get 17,000 more members. Also, if we can get 8,000 members from the component parties then I am confident that we can win Lembah Pantai,” he told reporters.

PKR’s Nurul Izzah Anwar defeated Umno’s Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil with a majority of 2,895 votes to capture Lembah Pantai in 2008.

Raja Nong Chik (picture) said it would be hard for BN to recapture the seats it lost in the general election.

“We have a heavy task of taking back the seats that we lost. It is a heavy task considering the political scenario. Umno must realise that the current political scenario is different from back then. We must work hard to regain the trust of the voters,” he told delegates at the Lembah Pantai Umno division meeting at the PWTC here.

He stressed that Umno must learn the lessons from the Hulu Selangor by-election and apply them to Lembah Pantai.

“We must take our win in Hulu Selangor and apply it to the Federal Territory seats, especially Lembah Pantai. The electoral breakdown is not different from Lembah Pantai. It is exactly the same.

"Can we win in Federal Territory seats? The picture is not comfortable for us but that is the reality that we have to accept. Lembah Pantai Umno is ready but it is going to be a tough battle. It is going to be neck and neck,” he said.


Day by day, UMNO is losing the trust of the people more and more. Nothing has changed with UMNO. UMNO is incorrigibly corrupt and rotten to the core.

BN/UMNO needs a two-prong approach to recapture Lembah Pantai

transfer voters/members from other areas with huge majority BN win, then offer some cash incentive to the fence sitters from the proceed of the RM500,000 extra cash given.

also Nong, you can take 20,000 illegals from Sabah to settle in Lembah Pantai and register them as voters there. This two-prone strategy would alleviate the overpopulation of illegals in Sabah. It's a win-win situation!

and UMNO will be irrelevant sooner than later if UMNO Youth dares not challenge its senior party leaders to reform the Judiciary, PDRM and give MACC the power to persecute the crooks within the party. Unless and until all these are done, do not go begging for votes in exchange for developments.

With UMNO warlords getting richer and richer, their pockets lined to the brim, their bungalows getting bigger and more numerous, their furnishings heavier and fancier, their cars more and more exotic and beyond the ordinary people's imagination, and their distance further and further away from the people around them, just how could UMNO possibly expect the rakyat, be they Malay, Chinese, Indians, or others, accept them into their folds???

UMNO only benefit a handful, while the majority others could only watch in awe and hopelessness. UMNO would not and could not change because the price and opportunity cost to change is too high for the warlords to accept. They are too entrenched in their rent-seeking ways. UMNO is too good a super convenient tool to give up for anything.

Kayveas: PPP will not demand seats in next general election

The People’s Progressive Party (PPP), which lost the two seats allocated to it by Barisan Nasional in the 2008 general election, will not be demanding for seats in the next general election, said its president Datuk M. Kayveas.

“We are not going to fight for seats, and the party will adhere to the advice of the prime minister on the seat allocation,” he told reporters after chairing the party’s supreme council meeting at Wisma PPP here today.

However, PPP would identify the niche areas where PPP could win if given the green light to contest, he said.

Kayveas (picture) said he had asked the state party chiefs to identify the parliamentary and state assembly seats which PPP would have a chance to win with BN in the coming elections.

“We will be getting the feedback in a month’s time,” he said, adding that PPP would not interfere if the seats it was interested in were given to the other component parties to contest.

In the last general election, Kayveas failed to defend his Taiping parliamentary seat which he held for one term, when he lost to DAP’s Nga Kor Ming, while Lee Heng, also from PPP, lost the contest for the Pasir Bedamar state seat to DAP’s Seah Leong Peng.


This is a wise decision as you will be eliminated anyway. This is a clever exit strategy and nobody will blame your party for your defeat.

i had respect for you as a fighter and now a quitter, time to leave and I mean leave bn totally
