Si 'barua' PAS minta Hadi buktikan dia 'dibeli' PKR...

Hadi kata PKR curi 2 barua PAS sokong Azizah...


Buktikan PKR 'beli' saya, kata Saari pada Hadi...

Anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) PAS Saari Sungib dilapor mencabar presiden partinya Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang untuk mengemukakan bukti beliau “dibeli” oleh PKR.

Perkara itu dilontarkan ekoran tindakannya menandatangani akuan berkanun (SD) yang menyokong Presiden PKR Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Ismail sebagai pengganti Menteri Bersar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim.

Saari, wakil rakyat Hulu Selangor menjelaskan, beliau menandatangani SD itu bagi mengelakkan Khalid menyebabkan lebih banyak masalah pada negeri itu, lapor The Star Online.

“Peguam menjelaskan bahawa ADUN mesti memindahkan sokongan kepada calon lain untuk mengesahkan SD itu, dan kami sokong Wan Azizah kerana PKR dan DAP setuju dengan pencalonannya,” beliau dipetik sebagai berkata.

Hadi semalam berkata, PKR tidak patut "mencuri" dua wakil rakyatnya, Saari dan Hasnul Baharuddin (Morib), untuk menyokong Azizah sebagai calon menteri besar.

"Takut majoriti tak dapat, curi wakil rakyat kita, beli wakil rakyat. Adakah ini etika bertahaluf?

"Kita tidak memandang ringan, dua wakil rakyat yang sanggup menyeberang, yang jadi broker, yang jadi barua, semua ada,” katanya.

Portal berbahasa Inggeris itu juga hari ini melaporkan Saari sebagai menegaskan, beliau hanya cuba mengekalkan kekuatan Pakatan di Selangor.

“Banyak ulama dalam parti, tetapi mereka masih benarkan tindakan mengutuk saya atas tindakan saya, yang sebenarnya hukuman sebelum perbicaraan. Parti Islam jenis apa ini?

“Di muktamar, pengerusi tetap tidak campur tangan apabila perwakilan berdoa supaya tuhan murka pada saya. Perkara ini sangat memalukan parti,” belia dipetik sebagai berkata.

Perwakilan dalam muktamar PAS sebelum ini mengambil peluang dalam ucapannya untuk membacakan doa mengutuk Saari dan Hasnul selain Timbalan Presiden Mohamad Sabu.

Wakil PAS Wilayah Persekutuan Azhari Ariffin berkata, dua ADUN itu ibarat ejen perosak dalam parti dan menyifatkan mereka sebagai “nila setitik yang merosakkan susu sebelanga”.- mk


Prove 'bought by PKR' claim, PAS rep tells Hadi...

PAS state assemblyperson Saari Sungib(above,right) today challenged his party president Abdul Hadi Awang to provide proof that he was "bought" by PKR.

This is in relation to Saari signing the statutory declaration supporting PKR president Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail to replace outgoing Selangor menteri besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

The Hulu Kelang assemblyperson said that he had signed the SD to deny Khalid from causing further damage to the state, reported The Star Online.

"The lawyers explained that the state assemblypersons need to transfer their support to another candidate in order to legitimise the SD, so we supported Wan Azizah because PKR and DAP had agreed to her nomination," said Saari.

Hadi yesterday accused PKR of "stealing" and "buying" two of its assemblypersons, making it possible for the party along with DAP to claim a commanding majority in the Selangor state assembly.

He had also described Saari as well as Morib state assemblyperson Hasnul Baharuddin as lackeys (barua) for signing the SD in support of Wan Azizah on Aug 14.

Saari, however, stressed that he was only trying to safeguard Pakatan Rakyat's grip on Selangor, and hit out at PAS for vilifying him without knowing the full story.

"There are many Islamic scholars in the party, yet they allow a motion to condemn me for my actions, which constitutes as punishment before trial. What kind of Islamic party is that?

"At the muktamar, the permanent chairperson did not intervene when a delegate prayed for God's wrath upon me. This is very shameful to the party," he added.- mk

Mat Sabu - Aku manusia bukannya dibuat dari plastik...


Timbalan Presiden PAS Mohamad Sabu yang dikecam ahli parti kerana dikatakan berkempen menentang presiden parti menolak dakwaan tersebut dengan mengatakan bagaimana beliau berkempen bagi Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang semasa Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 (PRU13).

Mohamad atau lebih dikenali sebagai Mat Sabu berkata, beliau juga berkempen untuk bekas ketua Pemuda PAS Nasrudin Hassan, apabila beliau bertanding kerusi Temerloh tahun lepas.

Nasrudin dianggap suara yang berpengaruh antara golongan konservatif parti, juga antara yang tidak dipersetujui Mat Sabu.

Mat Sabu berkata beliau menolong Hadi dalam memenangi kerusi parlimen di Marang, Terengganu. Hadi berada di belakang calon Umno pada masa itu dan hampir kalah.

"Apabila saya mendengar Nasrudin susah mendapat sokongan kaum Cina, saya turun padang untuk bercakap kepada mereka dan bawa Nasrudin untuk memberitahu mereka inilah calon (Pakatan Rakyat). Tolong undi dia," kata Mat Sabu.

Mat Sabu berkata, Hadi dan Nasrudin dapat menang sementara beliau sendiri kalah di Parlimen Pendang.

"Mereka katakan saya cuba jatuhkan presiden. Tetapi apabila saya dengar presiden akan kalah di Marang, saya pergi ke Terengganu untuk buat sebaik mungkin.

"Saya tidak boleh terima yang presiden kita akan kalah. Pada masa sama saya tidak boleh terima bekas ketua pemuda kita (Nasrudin) akan kalah juga.

"Saya pernah bercanggah pendapat dengan Nasrudin dahulu, tetapi saya tidak boleh biarkan beliau kalah. Jadi saya tolong beliau. Akhirnya saya yang kalah tetapi tidak mengapa," kata Mohamad.

Mohamad sudah lama menjadi fokus kemarahan golongan konservatif PAS daripada sayap Pemuda ke para ulama hingga ke pemimpin bahagian di seluruh himpunan utama.

Beliau dituduh merancang kempen menentang Hadi selepas mempersoalkan keputusannya dalam krisis menteri besar Selangor.

Semasa himpunan Pemuda ketika beliau memberi ucapan, kumpulan delegasi keluar dari dewan sebagai tanda protes.

Mohamad berkata, walaupun beliau berada di dalam parti untuk masa yang lama dan banyak pengalaman dalam dikritik, beliau masih kecil hati dengan tuduhan komplot beliau terhadap presiden.

"Saya masih manusia juga, bukannya dibuat dari plastik."

Menurut Mohamad Sabu atau Mat Sabu, muktamar kali ini beliau menjadi sasaran daripada perwakilan lain untuk mengkritik tindakannya.

“Entah macam mana saya menjadi sasaran.

“Tetapi saya berasa seronok bila mereka bercakap dan berterus terang dalam mengkritik dan memberi cadangan di Muktamar kali ke-60 ini.

Katanya lagi, apa yang tidak seronok gambar beliau ada pihak yang tidak menyukai tindakannya telah membubuh cat.

“Tak seronoklah, jangan buat macam itu, muslimat marah.

“Bagi yang mengkritik itu perkara biasa. Namun perjuangan kita tetap berlandaskan Islam dan tidak akn berubah,” jelasnya.

Ujarnya, apa yang beliau cakap di depan wartawan itu semuanya berdasarkan mesyuarat yang telah diputuskan oleh semua di dalam PAS.

Pada 17 Ogos lalu, Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang tidak dapat hadir dan ada masalah kesihatan.

“Tapi saya baca semua keputusan dan surat yang ditandatangani oleh Presiden. Tidak tinggal sepatah ayat pon.

“7 September juga PAS sudah buat keputusan untuk menolak jawatan menteri besar. Kami sentiasa berhubung dan mengadakan mesyuarat dalam membuat keputusan yang penting. 

“Jadi tidak timbul saya mengkhianati Presiden atau membelakanginya,” katanya.- tmi/fmt



Sementara itu Mohamad Sabu hari ini menyindir perwakilan Wilayah Persekutuan Azhari Ariffin(atas) yang membacakan doa dalam ucapan untuk mengecam beliau dan dua ADUN Selangor semalam.

Beliau menyifatkan tindakan berdoa itu sebagai satu "taktik baru" yang tidak pernah digunakan sebelum ini.

"Walaupun ada perkara baru yang dipersembahkan. Baru kali pertama saya tengok ucapan dalam bentuk doa.

"Dulu kita guna doa, bila nak ceramah tak boleh, FRU suruh bersurai, akhirnya kita berdoa," katanya.

Perwakilan itu pula menggunakan taktik tersebut untuk menghadapi larangan pengerusi tetap, kata Mohamad dalam ucapan penggulungannnya di Muktamar PAS Ke-60, petang ini.

"Tambah lagi sewaktu Ustaz Abu Bakar Cik berdoa, panjang. Macam tu juga dengan Ustaz Fadzil Nor.

"Macam semalam, kalau berdoa panjang, Pengerusi tetap nak suruh berhenti, doa.

"Ooo... rupanya ini taktik baru. Lepas ini kita baca talkin pula. Lepas ini kita baca talkin dalam bahasa Melayu (sewaktu berbahas)," katanya sinis sambil diiringi gelak ketawa perwakilan.


Walaupun beliau memuji tindakan Azhari tampil berbahas tetapi tokoh PAS itu tetap menyindir bahawa pemimpin muda itu tidak mendedahkan identiti sebenar.

Beliau juga menolak tuduhan oleh perwakilan yang curiga dengan pemimpin PAS yang berkawan dengan pemimpin sosialis.

Katanya, beliau sebagai pengerusi jawatankuasa mobilisasi dan demokrasi bertanggungjawab untuk mendekati “kumpulan kuasa ketiga”.

Tindakannya itu juga disokong oleh Setiausaha Agung Datuk Mustafa Ali dalam ucapan terdahulu.

Mustafa berkata Mohamad sememangnya bertanggungjawab berkawan dengan pemimpin Parti Sosialis Malaysia dan NGO Islam dan bukan Islam.

"Tanggungjawab dia sebagai pengerusi gerakan mobilisasi dan demokrasi berhubung dengan NGO, termasuk bukan NGO bukan Islam dan PSM," kata Mustafa dalam ucapan penggulungannya.- mk


Mat Sabu counters roasting with humour...

After being roasted by several delegates at the 60th PAS muktamar, PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu finally took to the stage today with his usual sense of humour intact.

"I don't know how I suddenly became a target at the muktamar this time, but it's amusing when people are direct in their criticism.

"What is not amusing, is my picture on a banner nearby being spray-painted.

"Don't do that, the women's wing will be upset," he joked in apparent reference to his looks.

Mohamad over the last two days was accused of trying to undermine PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang, allying himself with "godless" socialists and being disrespectful of party clerics.

It didn't help when a week before the muktamar, he in an interview with Malaysiakini ticked the party leaders off for bandying Islam instead of concentrating on justice and good governance.

Dismissing claims he was out to undermine Hadi, Mohamad, better known as Mat Sabu, related how he had worked hard to ensure the party president won in the last general election.

He also addressed his apparent contradictory statements with Hadi on the Selangor crisis, stating that he was only conveying decisions made at the party's meeting.

'Not out to topple Hadi'

He cited the Aug 17 decision which decided to endorse PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail and her deputy Azmin Ali as menteri besar candidates.

"I read out at the press conference the statement that was signed by the president, I did not even change a dot in the text," he said in his winding-up speech.

Hadi subsequently overruled the central committee and submitted his own list of names to the Selangor palace for consideration, which included a PAS representative.

"Having the intention to topple the president had never come across our hearts," said Mohamad.

He added that his presence at a Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) function was due to his duties as the democracy and mobilisation bureau chief which requires him to engage other political parties.

He also denied a delegate's accusation that he had alluded that Indonesian president-elect Joko Widodo, fondly known as Jokowi, was better than Hadi.

Instead, Mohamad said he had merely used Jokowi's victory as Indonesian president to highlight the rise of the "third force" which he said was likewise happening in Malaysia.

"Those who are being charged for sedition, people like Adam Adli, Safwan Anang, Hishamuddin Rais, all these are what is called the third force that may shape the future political landscape," he said.

He stressed that the Islamic party needed to keep abreast of these developments.

Mohamad also emphasised the need for PAS to have friends, using the problems of Egypt's Islamic Brotherhood as illustration.

"After the Islamic Brotherhood came to power, they excluded many party's because they thought they could go it alone.

"But when there was a crackdown against the Islamic Brotherhood, there were no more tens of thousands of supporters that had hit the streets to support them," he said.

'Veto power used sparingly'

Meanwhile, PAS secretary-general Mustafa Ali too defended Mohamad, stating that it was he who had asked the deputy president to attend PSM events.

Likewise, Mustafa also defended Hadi's move to veto the party's central committee, stating that the president did not normally exercise this power.

"The president does not use his veto power all the time, there should not be such perception," he said.

Mustafa said Hadi had only exercised his power when decisions needed to be done on short notice.

In the case of the Selangor crisis, Mustafa claimed the palace had asked for names for menteri besar candidates on a short notice, therefore Hadi made his own decision in consultation with the syura council.

He claimed PAS and its Pakatan Rakyat partners were unable to decide on who should be the next Selangor menteri besar, thus prolonging the crisis.

Even though the PAS' central committee had decided that the top post belonged to PKR, Hadi's list to the palace included a PAS candidate.

After the muktamar, Mustafa was asked if PAS would accept the menteri besar position if offered by the Selangor sultan, but was coy about the matter.

"If a PKR candidate is chosen, we will support it, but if PAS is chosen, I don't want to comment," he said.- mk

IGP dapat tangguh arahan tangkap mualaf...


Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar berjaya menangguhkan arahan mahkamah ke atasnya untuk menangkap seorang mualaf dalam pertikaian penjagaan anak.

Penangguhan itu diperolehi melalui keputusan Mahkamah Rayuan yang membenarkan penangguhan hukuman ex-parte ke atas perintah yang dikeluarkan Rabu lalu.

Perintah penangguhan ex-parte adalah penangguhan yang dibuat dengan kehadiran sebelah pihak tanpa kehadiran satu lagi pihak.

Keputusan Mahkamah Rayuan itu dibuat pada hari Rabu dan salinannya dikemukakan pada peguam, M Kulasegaran

IGP Khalid telahpun mengemukakan afidavit bersama permohonannya.

Mahkamah Tinggi Ipoh sebelum ini memerintahkan IGP menangkap K Pathmanathan @ Mohamad Ridhuan Abdullah dalam masa tujuh hari dari Jumaat minggu lepas.

Perintah itu dikeluarkan oleh Mahkamah Tinggi Ipoh.

Penangguhan hukuman yang diperolehi AG diputuskan oleh seorang hakim, Hakim Aziah Ali.

Ia sama seperti kes Datuk Seri Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin melawan Datuk Seri Zambry Abdul Kadir apabila penangguhan hukuman Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur dibuat oleh seorang hakim Mahkamah Rayuan.- mk


Papan Iklan Besar Jatuh Hempap 4 Kereta Di Pulau Pinang...

Empat kereta rosak teruk selepas dihempap papan iklan yang terjatuh dari bumbung sebuah bangunan lima tingkat akibat dipukul ribut dalam kejadian di Krystal Point, Bayan Baru di sini, malam ini.

Kejadian berlaku pada jam 7 malam apabila angin kencang disusuli hujan lebat menyebabkan papan iklan berkenaan jatuh lalu menghempap kereta jenis Citroen, BMW, Perodua Myvi dan Kelisa yang diletakkan di kawasan parkir kereta di luar bangunan berkenaan.



Saksi dikenali sebagai Mariam, 24, berkata sebelum kejadian, dia berada di hadapan bangunan itu sambil melihat keadaan awan yang tiba-tiba bertukar gelap dan ketika itu hujan rintik-rintik.

"Tidak lama kemudian saya bunyi kuat seperti ketulan batu jatuh dari atas bumbung sebelum papan iklan jatuh menjunam dan terus menghempap beberapa kereta dan saya berlari masuk ke dalam bangunan untuk menyelamatkan diri.

"Selepas itu, ramai orang berkerumun untuk melihat kejadian berkenaan dan nasib baik tiada mangsa dilaporkan cedera," katanya ketika ditemui di tempat kejadian.



Sementara itu, Komander Kanan Ibu Pejabat Jabatan Bomba dan Penyelamat negeri Abdul Rahim Ismail berkata, sepasukan pegawai dan anggota bomba bergegas ke lokasi kejadian dan mendapati papan iklan sebesar enam hingga 12 kaki yang berada di bahagian bumbung di tingkat lima runtuh dan jatuh. 

Beliau berkata, runtuhan itu menyebabkan empat kenderaan rosak teruk dan pihaknya akan mengarahkan pihak pengurusan bangunan mengosongkan kawasan runtuhan untuk kerja membersihkan saki baki runtuhan.

IGP dodges contempt with new stay order...

It seems inspector-general of police Khalid Abu Bakar has been provided a lifeline from possible contempt in the Ipoh High Court inter-faith custodial dispute.

The reprieve came after the attorney-general obtained an ex-parte stay of execution from the Court of Appeal on the order to compel the IGP to arrest K Pathmanathan @ Mohamad Ridhuan Abdullah within seven days from last Friday.

An ex-parte stay order is made by one party without the attendance of the other.

The stay has freed  the IGP of possible contempt, since both parties will now be required to meet on Sept 25 for the court to decide whether the stay will be permanent.

The appellate court decision was made on Wednesday and a copy was served on Ipoh Barat MP and lawyer M Kulasegaran today.

IGP Khalid made an accompanying affidavit to the application.

The arrest order to be executed by the IGP was issued by the Ipoh High Court.

The Appeal Court decision was made by a single judge, namely Justice Aziah Ali, rather than the customary three-member panel.

This is similar to the Mohd Nizar Jamaluddin vs Zambry Abdul Kadir case in which a stay of execution of the Kuala Lumpur High Court order was granted by a single Court of Appeal judge who heard the matter.

Kulasegaran said the application was unnecessary and unfair because the papers could have been served to him in person rather than ex-parte, and argued for a three-member appeal panel.

The Ipoh High Court had on Friday ordered the police and IGP to arrest Pathmanathan @ Ridhuan (left) and for his daughter Prasana Diksa returned to her mother M Indira Gandhi within seven days.

On that same day, the senior federal counsel applied for a stay of the order. only to be rejected by Justice Lee Swee Seng.

Yesterday it was reported that the AG's Chambers had subsequently filed a notice of appeal over Friday's application.

Kula: We will challenge

Kulasegaran slammed the government's move of securing the application without having their voice heard and questioned the government's motives.

Indira (right in photo), he added, is distraught and upset on being informed of the ex-parte order and they intend to challenge it.

Kulasegaran said the refusal by the IGP to arrest Pathmanathan is only giving aid to his continuing act of contempt.

“The administration of justice is being brought into disrepute. I have promised her our team of lawyers will immediately mount a challenge to set aside the ex-parte order.

“It is not going to be easy. To challenge the country’s top policeman, the IGP, and the government’s number one lawyer, the AG, is going to be an uphill task.

"But persevere we will for we have faith that justice in accordance with the law and as administered by our judges will prevail,” he said in a statement.

Stay application 'baseless'

Kulasegaran argued that there was no need for the government to opt for the ex-parte application.

"Although the AG is entitled to make such an application, there is utterly no urgency nor any prejudice to the IGP.

“The IGP merely had to arrest Indira Gandhi’s ex-husband and commit him to prison. Something which he, as a policeman, is duty bound to do," he argued.

“Indira Gandhi has her solicitors, Messrs Kula & Associates, and it would have only been fair for the AG to serve all papers on us and to have the matter heard before a panel of three judges in open court.”

The Ipoh Barat MP said it commonly accepted practice in law that both parties in the case ought to be heard.

“Justice must not only be done but must be seen to be done. The AG’s decision to move the court and obtain an ex-parte order is only going delay matters, while causing serious prejudice to the welfare of Prasana Diksa and Indira Gandhi and create a great disservice to the administration of justice.

“Had the court heard us, it might have come to the conclusion that the application was baseless.

"The AG must convince Malaysians that ex-parte applications such as these are being made for the interest of the public and not for any ulterior motive,” Kulasegaran said.- mk


Does it help S'gor to replace 'conniving' Khalid with 'conniving' Azmin...

Yesterday, we learnt the Selangor palace rebuked Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The sultan has expressed his displeasure through a letter. The letter was made public. This is highly irregular. Making it public, that is.

The sultan is vested with powers which are a formality, but do not translate into an opportunity for the sovereign to enact personal political preference. The sultan is non-political.

His advisers are making the sultan political and partisan. The sultan, however, has every right to be displeased. His displeasure is covered by his right to warn.

Anwar has been warned that he has erred. He has since apologised and sought forgiveness. What more do we want to exact from him? For more than 17 years, we have had his flesh. Do we now want his pint of blood?

Since we follow the Westminster style of government, according to the Victorian economist, Walter Bagehot, the sovereign has three rights: "the right to be consulted, the right to encourage, the right to warn".



According to Bagehot, a sovereign would, over the course of a long reign, accumulate far more knowledge and experience than any minister. And perhaps the HRH Sultan of Selangor has accumulated more wisdom than any minister.

But his counsels ought to have done better other than encouraging a collision course between elected reps and the sovereign. This is a dangerous path. The irresponsible advisers to the sultan are encouraging the sultan to follow.

This will place the palace in confrontation with political parties, never mind if Umno isn’t part of it at the moment. But Umno is eager to see a confrontation. As I said in an earlier article, this would ferment a martial mood among the Malays – our sultan is threatened, our honour is at stake.

Let us mengamuk. Call in Perkasa, Isma and the unregistered Malay groupings which are regarded as legal unlike the Penang voluntary squad. Umno can’t wait to capitalise on this and take repressive actions.

But alas, I fear the Malay mindset cannot be rescued by the cheapskate and alarmist allegation that the Malay monarchy is under attack. The Malay mindset is not as simplistic as Umno would have wished it were.

Sultans reasserting themselves?

In appointing a chief minister, the sovereign is guided by constitutional conventions. The main requirement is to find someone who can command the confidence of the Selangor assembly. That is the only qualification.

This is normally secured by appointing the leader of the party with an overall majority of seats in the house, but there could still be exceptional circumstances when the sultan might need to exercise discretion to ensure that his government is carried on.

When Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim was called to the palace, the sultan ought to have asked him if he can form a government.

But Khalid wasn’t asked or before the sultan could ask, he offered his version of events. He could have turned down the offer by simply telling the truth – he does not have majority support and that Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail has it.

Or he could have accepted what is a called an exploratory commission, returning later to report either failure or success in securing a majority. He did not. He did not tell the truth. He did not want to free Selangor.

Is this the beginning of an assertive and adventurous monarchy? It will eventually lead to a clash between the sultan and people. The people do not now include Umno, because we know Umno is aligning itself with the monarchical democrats.

This group wants to see the sultan on their side so that they can use his stature to bulldoze through their political agenda.

I use the term monarchical democrats to refer to the political parties that uphold elections as means to secure power and then assign absolute-tending powers to its ally – the monarchy.

It is a quid pro quo arrangement. We support near absolute powers and in return, you help us out. The monarchy is clearly showing that it is siding with Umno.



Monarchy to protect the Malays NOT UMNO

The monarchy is here to help and protect Malays. They are not here to protect Umno and its leaders.Let us not allow ingenious or disingenuous minds (depending on how we see them) torture the language and intent of our Constitution.

Ours is a parliamentary democracy. The Yang di-Pertuan Agong is a constitutional monarch. The wishes of the people as expressed through the conduct of elected representatives must reign supreme over any other wishes, including the private wishes of the constitutional monarch.

Let me repeat myself silly on this – we don’t have an absolute monarchy.

The whole purpose of our Constitution at all levels is to give more liberal latitude to the people to exercise their discretion rather than freedom to the monarch.

The means by which this purpose is to be achieved is reverential to the sultan as it ought to be – that it is to be presented to the sultan in the form of advice for ratification rather than rejection or alteration.

Therefore, I respectfully submit that the wishes of the people as expressed through the conduct of their elected representatives have more authority that the wishes of the reigning constitutional monarch.

The parties submitting only one name to the reigning constitutional monarch acted on better authority that the monarch himself who is bound by the provisions of the Constitution.

The principle is the same – whether it is the Constitution of the nation or the state. The majority supported Dr Wan Azizah as MB – that is a fact and it is not for anyone outside to judge the soundness of their motives.



As to her qualifications – I think that are not in dispute. Perhaps she may not be able to engage in verbal jousting in the dewan – but in time she will do it.

Tun Abdul Razak Hussein wasn’t an orator but was a master administrator (the son is neither here nor there), the previous MBs of Selangor were not that qualified – Tan Sri Ahmad Razali Mohd Ali was a penghulu and had Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad as brother-in-law, Datuk Hormat Rafei was a band boy.

The qualification to become MB is one who commands the confidence of the majority. If a trishaw puller commands such, he has the qualification.

Some people thought as I do, that Azmin Ali the thinker, the methodical planner would be more suited to be the MB of Selangor – but the majority has a different opinion.

So despite our own private reservations about Dr Wan Azizah being a potentially effete leader (more at home at bringing packed food and refreshments to PKR meetings and playing with lanterns), 30 of the elected reps signed a pledge in support of Dr Wan Azizah.

Unfortunately, both parties are right in the way they looked at the political situation. A compromise may be necessary in order to avoid a collision course between elected reps and the monarchy. That could be very destabilising. That would require some accommodating gestures.

In the end, to avoid unnecessary collision course with the sovereign, PKR may have to make some adjustments.

The adjustments may involve endorsing someone else other than Dr Wan Azizah but from PKR. It will still get its person to be MB and more importantly, kick out the conniving Khalid. Also, to make the white of Umno’s eyes whiter. – Dato' Mohd.Ariff Sabri bin Hj. Abdul Aziz.@sakmongkol ak47

Dr.M - Hanya satu nama saja, sapa tak kata apa2 pun...


Pakatan Rakyat (PR) bukan entiti tunggal, disebabkan itu ia perlu menghantar nama calon menteri besar lebih daripada satu kepada sultan, kata bekas Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Bagaimanapun, Dr Mahathir berkata dirinya boleh menghantar satu nama saja kerana Barisan Nasional (BN) merupakan gabungan parti yang berdaftar dan tidak ada siapa pernah membantah keputusannya.

"Saya pilih (calon menteri besar) berdasarkan sokongan popular dan tiada siapa yang tidak puas hati, maka tidak perlu saya bagi lebih daripada satu nama," katanya mengulas tentang pertikaian jumlah nama yang perlu dihantar ke istana mengikut konvensyen.

Dalam krisis menteri besar Selangor yang masih belum selesai sekarang, Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim berkata, amalan menghantar satu nama dipraktikkan sejak zaman pemerintahan BN pada 1957.

Dr Mahathir juga berkata sebelum ini, menjadi amalan biasa semasa beliau mentadbir negara, dengan mengemukakan hanya satu nama kepada Sultan.

Semalam, istana dalam kenyataannya menegur PKR buat kali kedua kerana mempertikaikan titah Sultan supaya mengemukakan lebih satu nama calon bagi menggantikan Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim.

Dr Mahathir berkata, pembangkang terpaksa menghantar lebih daripada satu nama akibat percanggahan pendapat sesama mereka sendiri di dalam Pakatan Rakyat.

"Ia (Pakatan Rakyat) bukan parti tunggal. Mereka ini ialah tiga pihak yang tidak bersetuju antara satu sama lain. Jadi, perlu diberi sedikit ruang kepada Sultan untuk memilih antara calon yang ada.

"Dalam kes saya, tiada siapa yang tidak berpuas hati dengan nama yang dicadangkan, semua pihak bersetuju dengan satu nama itu. Sultan terimalah," katanya pada satu majlis di Kuala Lumpur hari ini.

Semalam, Setiausaha Sulit Sultan Selangor Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani menafikan dakwaan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim yang amalan menghantar satu nama calon menteri besar kepada Sultan merupakan amalan sejak negara mencapai kemerdekaan pada 1957.

Katanya, kenyataan Ketua Umum PKR itu tidak tepat dan mengelirukan rakyat dan menerangkan apa yang berlaku semasa pentadbiran kerajaan BN.

"Pemilihan calon menteri besar dipersembahkan kepada Sultan Selangor oleh perdana menteri melalui Majlis Menghadap Sultan.

"Dalam majlis itu perdana menteri akan memberikan beberapa nama calon yang difikirkan layak untuk mendapat perkenan Sultan.

"Daripada senarai nama-nama calon tersebut, Sultan Selangor akan memilih hanya seorang calon untuk dilantik sebagai menteri besar," kata Munir. – tmi

D Ambran Dulah - Dengan kenyataan Dr. Mahathir betullah apa yg DSAI PERKATAKAN...jadi siapa yang profesional dan siapa yang sumbang dan pelik....


It was always one name for MB as nobody disputed me, says Dr M...

Pakatan Rakyat is not a single entity which is why it has to submit more than one candidate for menteri besar to the state ruler, former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said today.

However, he said he was able to submit only one name for Barisan Nasional as a registered coalition because no one disputed his decision.

"I chose (the menteri besar candidate) based on popular support and no one was unhappy, so it was not necessary to submit more than one name," said Dr Mahathir in response to the ongoing debate over the convention as to the number of names required for submission to the palace.

In the current Selangor menteri besar crisis, opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had said that BN had always given only one name to the ruler to appoint a menteri besar since 1957.

Dr Mahathir, too, had said it had been the norm while he was prime minister to recommend only one name to the ruler.

Yesterday, however, the Selangor palace issued a second reprimand to PKR over the number of names submitted to replace Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim as menteri besar.

Dr Mahathir said the reason the opposition had to submit more than one name was because of disagreement among their parties.

"This (Pakatan Rakyat) is not single party. This is three parties which disagree with each other. So you must give some room for the ruler to choose between the candidates. In my case, nobody was unhappy with the name suggested as all parties agreed to that one name. The ruler accepted that," Dr Mahathir said in Kuala Lumpur today.

The sultan's private secretary, Datuk Mohamad Munir Bani, said in a statement yesterday that the sultan denied Anwar's claim that it had always been convention to submit only one name for the post since Merdeka.

"Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's statement is inaccurate and confuses the rakyat. What happened during the BN government's administration was that the choices for the Selangor MB post were presented to the Selangor Sultan by the prime minister in a ceremony.

"During the ceremony, the prime minister would present the candidates believed to be qualified, for the sultan's consent.

"From the list of names, the sultan would choose one candidate to be appointed MB," said Munir had said.

Munir said the PKR de facto leader did not have the correct facts and urged him not to release statements that could confuse the public and taint the sultan's image.

Last Tuesday, Anwar sought the sultan's forgiveness for offending him after PKR defied his decree to submit more than two names to the palace.

But Anwar had insisted that his party had acted according to convention and state law in proposing only Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail for the position. – tmi

Enlighten us please, Aziz Bari tells palace...

Following the Selangor palace’s rebuke of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim yesterday, constitutional law expert professor Abdul Aziz Bari(right) has urged the palace to explain the previous practice of  appointing a menteri besar.
 
He said the palace should explain the practice since 1950 when the country had a constitutional monarchy.
The palace should also make clear its views on requirements for majority and submission of names.
 
“Is it similar to what we understand, (which is) what has been practised throughout the commonwealth, or something different?” he asked.
 
He also asked for the palace’s views on the Selangor constitution’s requirement that the menteri besar must be a Malay and a Muslim, since it had become an issue during the 1969 general election.
 
“It has to be pointed out that a practice - past and present - may not be right and in conformity with (the) constitution, which embody the practice of Westminster democracy convention in this respect.
 
“Let us take the opportunity to put the law and practice straight and clear, so that in future there will be no more delay like what happened in Selangor,” he said yesterday.
 
Yesterday, the Sultan of Selangor’s private secretary Mohamad Munir Bani (left) denied Anwar’s claims that it is the convention since independence to nominate only one person for the post of menteri besar.
 
In response, Anwar said “I merely wanted to state what had happened within my knowledge, especially while I was in the Umno-BN government from 1982 to 1998.
 
“If I had erred, I wish to apologise to his highness the sultan of Selangor.”
 
In addition, Aziz Bari suggested that the conference of rulers and the national palace should also explain how the appointments of prime ministers are carried out.

He said this as the legal provisions for the appointment for menteri besar and those for the appointment of prime ministers are “essentially the same”.
 
“The National Palace should tell us how prime ministers have been appointed and how changes during the term or after general election (are) normally being handled,” he said.- mk
Abasir - If what Munir Bani claims is true, it is clear that he is implying a blatant lie on the part of Mahathir. And Mahathir, by repeating his 'one nominee' rebuttal, is impugning vile motives on the part of the palace which is insisting on multiple nominees including those who do not have the support of the majority of the Assembly. Now what is the punishment for a treasonous utterance?

MinahBulat - Aziz Bari you are touching one of the 4 sacred cows that the Home Minister says is unspeakable and unquestionable. Race, Religion, Royalty and Rights ( Social Contract ). Now asking for an explanation from the Royalty can be deem and it is questioning Royalty and can be considered "biadap". I think most Malaysian will be very disappointed if you are now dragged in and be charged under the Sedition Act.

Nik Aziz tidak benarkan PAS bergabung dengan UMNO/Don't turn 'PAS for all' to 'PAS for PAS'...


Pendirian tegas Mursyidul Am Pas, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat yang tidak akan sesekali membenarkan Pas bergabung dengan UMNO sehingga tiada sesiapa dalam kalangan Pas berani untuk menyuarakan pandangan itu.

Bahkan menurut Pengarah Jawatankuasa Operasi Pas PRK Pengkalan Kubor, Datuk Wan Abdul Rahim Wan Abdullah, Nik Aziz akan meludah muka sesiapa yang berani berkata demikian.

"Tuk Guru kata siapa-siapa yang mahu ajak Pas nak bersama dengan UMNO dia kan ludah. 

Tiada sesiapa berani ajak Tuk Guru kalau nak jugak kerjasama dengan UMNO tunggu Nik Aziz mati" kata Wan Abdul Rahim demikian kepada pemberita di sidang media harian Pas di sini siang tadi.


Turut hadir calon Pas, Wan Rosdi Wan Ibrahim, Timbalan Pengarah Jawatankuasa Operasi Pas PRK Pengkalan Kubor, Mohd Zaki Ibrahim dan Timbalan Ketua Dewan Pemuda Pas Kelantan, Hafiz Musa.

Katanya kebencian Nik Aziz kepada UMNO sukar dihapuskan hingga menyebabkan pendiriannya itu sukar digugat oleh sesiapa.

Dalam perkembangan berkaitan, Pas akan merahsiakan terlebih dahulu lokasi ceramah perdananya bagi kempen pilihan raya kecil Dun Pengkalan Kubor yang akan dirancang akan diadakan pada 23 September depan.

Katanya Pas juga kini lebih menumpukan ceramah berkelompok, ceramah mini rumah ke rumah berbanding ceramah secara besar-besaran.- kedahlanie.info

'Berjongkang-jongkit' dengan UMNO juga perlu ditegur...

Perwakilan Perak Noh Ahmad bukan sahaja menggesa Pakatan Rakyat diperkukuhkan, malah mahu konsep PAS For All tidak dianggap sebagai "slogan kosong" untuk memenangi hati rakyat.

Menurutnya, konsep PAS For All perlu dalam usaha menyelamatkan orang Melayu daripada "dogma dan khurafat" Umno bahawa parti itu sahaja yang boleh menyelamatkan kaum itu.

"Pada pilihan raya umum ke-13 ia ada hasilnya. Kita menang dengan beberapa negeri dan kerusi.

"Jadi kami berharap orang pantai timur memahami realiti di pantai barat. Kita tidak kata kemenangan ditentukan oleh satu pihak.

"Tetapi sejarah membuktikan masyarakat Melayu sangat kuat dengan dogma dan khurafat bahawa Umno sahaja yang membela dan menyelamatkan mereka," katanya.

Kawasan pantai timur khususnya di Kelantan dan Terengganu majoritinya didiami kaum Melayu berbanding di pantai timur.

Beliau berkata demikian menyampaikan ucapan terima kasih dan membahas usul ucapan dasar presiden bertajuk "Terus Beristiqamah" dalam muktamar PAS di Batu Pahat hari ini.

Menurut Noh lagi, keputusan Majlis Syura Ulama yang mahu PAS bertahaluf dalam Pakatan Rakyat sebagai medan untuk menyampaikan Islam.

Menurutnya lagi, sebelum ini masyarakat bukan Islam mengenali Islam itu melalui kaca mata perlembagaan sehingga dilihat tidak mampu menyelesaikan masalah tertentu termasuk isu perebutan anak.

"Tanggungjawab PAS untuk menyelesaikan dengan menjelaskan Islam, bahawa ini (penyelesaian) dalam Islam.


'Berjongkang-jongkit dengan UMNO'

"Pakatan Rakyat Perak mengadakan dialog dengan NGO (bukan Islam) dan mereka ingin sangat mengenali apa kehendak Islam (berhubung isu itu).

"Selagi kita terkongkong dengan pandangan Islam melalui kaca mata Umno, selagi itu mereka tidak dapat lihat 'PAS for All'," katanya.

Sehubungan itu, beliau menggesa golongan ulama dalam PAS turun padang untuk mengadakan pertemuan dengan bukan Islam bagi menjelaskan pandangan dan penyelesaian berhubung isu yang terlibat.

Sementara itu, Perwakilan Melaka Yuhaizad Abdullah berkata aspirasi rakyat yang mahukan PAS bersama Pakatan Rakyat sebagai satu-satunya cara untuk keluar daripada "belenggu" Umno dan BN.

"PAS meninggalkan Pakatan Rakyat bermaksud meninggal hasrat dan aspirasi rakyat kepada PAS For All menjadi PAS for PAS, Rahmat Untuk Semua akan menjadi Rahmat untuk PAS.

"Tajuk tema muktamar kita 'Terus Beristiqamah, kita boleh teruskan, tetapi lebih malang, jika rakyat terus dibelenggu oleh Umno dan BN," katanya.

Beliau juga menegur kumpulan ulama dalam PAS dengan melabel ahli PAS dengan label antaranya seperti 'munafik haraki', pengkhianat, akidah tidak sahih, liberal, parasit'.

"Mereka yang menyokong Pakatan Rakyat, jangan mudah dituduh sebagai pengkhianat. Mereka yang berjongkang-jongkit di rumah Umno harus ditegur. Kerana setiap ahli kita ada nilai.

"Ulama juga jangan muda menghalau ahli keluar daripada PAS. Janganlah mereka yang berpegang kepada keputusan jawatankuasa PAS, itu dipandang serong dan dipersalahkan.

"Mempertahankan keputusan jawatankuasa PAS, beerti mempertahankan presiden, timbalan presiden, naib presiden dan seluruh AJK PAS pusat," katanya.

Sementara itu, perwakilan Selangor Sallehen Mukhyi (kanan) berkata menegur rakan dalam Pakatan Rakyat supaya menghormati setiap keputusan yang dibuat oleh PAS khususnya berhubung isu menteri Besar Selangor.

Beliau yang juga exco Selangor berkata ketiga-tiga parti dalam gabungan pembangkang itu perlu benar-benar "berpakat" dan "tidak perlu membawa masalah yang dibebankan ke atas rakan dalam Pakatan".

"Kami akan menerima nasihat terus daripada pimpinan PAS Pusat dan dari Majlis Syura Ulama. Terima kasih daripada keputusan PAS supaya kami bertahan ada kebijaksanaannya," katanya.

Bagaimanapun, Sallehen mendedahkan beliau dan rakan-rakan exco PAS menerima cemuhan dalam melaksanakan tugas exco selepas keputusan itu dibuat, dan mereka menempuhinya dengan sabar dan memohon pertolongan daripada Allah.

Beliau juga menegur ahli PAS Supaya menunjukkan akhlak yang baik dan menjaga adab jemaah sekalipun tidak bersetuju dengan keputusan kepimpinan.- mk



Don't turn 'PAS for all' to 'PAS for PAS'...

Amid strained relations between PAS and its Pakatan Rakyat partners, several party delegates reminded the party's muktamar today of its “PAS for all” slogan, warning against turning it into "PAS for PAS".

The first day of the three-day 60th PAS Muktamar in Batu Pahat saw the delegates, all of whom were from west coast with more multi-racial constituencies, making the case for continued cooperation within Pakatan.

Perak delegate Noh Ahmad even appealed to his Malay-majority east coast counterparts, which are mostly dominated by conservatives and are critical of Pakatan, to consider the political realities on their end.

"’PAS for all’ is not an empty slogan. It has contributed to our win in several seats and states.

"Therefore Perak PAS hopes the leadership on the east coast can understand our situation on the west coast, the environment is very different," he said.

He stressed that PAS cannot hope to win by only relying only on Malays, lamenting their entrenchment in Umno.

"History has proven that the Malays can be dogmatic towards the notion that only Umno can defend and save them, it is difficult to break this.

"And when there’s infighting among us, it makes it even more difficult to break down this wall,' he said.

He also urged clerics in the party to engage the people on the ground more.

'Abandoning the rakyat'

Echoing this was Malacca's delegate Yuhaizad Abdullah who warned that PAS abandoning Pakatan would be abandoning the rakyat whose votes initially brought the coalition together.

"Abandoning Pakatan means abandoning the hopes and aspirations of the rakyat...‘PAS for all’ will become ‘PAS for PAS’," he said.

He also urged the party's clerics not to lower themselves by giving labels to others in the party such as "hypocrites", "traitors" or "liberals".

"Do not simply label those who support Pakatan as traitors. Those who are cosy in Umno's house should also be reprimanded," he said.

Likewise, Johor's delegate Zulhilmi Rohani too stressed the need of not only relying on a single race for support.

He added that the days of PAS going it alone was over.

"Pakatan allows PAS to be the best example of the values of the Quran which acknowledges all races.

"Regardless who leads PAS, they must be based on universal values.

"We cannot blame anyone if the rakyat reject us because we are only concerned about our sentiments for one race," he said.

Reconciliatory tone
 

The Islamic party has seen its non-Malay support increase to the highest level in its history through Pakatan.

However, following the souring of ties due to the Selangor menteri besar crisis, the party has recently experienced some backlash.

PAS and its Pakatan allies are at loggerheads over who should be the next Selangor menteri besar with PKR and DAP backing PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail but the Islamic party has refused to back her.

The situation was aggravated at the conservatives-dominated PAS Youth muktamar on Tuesday and Wednesday as delegates launched attacks on its Pakatan partners over the crisis.

PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's policy speech this morning which asked Pakatan not to betray the coalition, has also upset its allies.

PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution (left) in a Twitter posting today had questioned whether it was arch-rival's Umno's annual general assembly that was going on.

Within PAS, pro-Pakatan leaders and conservatives have also clashed over the matter.

However, delegates at the main muktamar this evening were measured in their words and demonstrated wisdom as they urged to diffuse of the crisis.

Zulhilmi urged an end to the tit-for-tat among party leaders, and instead urged a proper forum for such discussions.

Mat Sabu not spared

However, the muktamar today was not totally subdued, as Selangor's Sallehen Mukhyi, who is also the state's exco, fired a salvo at PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu.

"Do not let there be leaders who try to tell our members that Indonesia's Jokowi (Widodo) is better than our president or that people who fight on socialist policies are better than our leadership," he said.

Mohamad (right) in his policy speech at the PAS Youth muktamar on Tuesday had urged unity in Malaysia's Islamic movement, pointing out how voters had chosen Jokowi as president over a fragmented Islamic movement in Indonesia.

He had also highlighted how Malay youths had joined Parti Sosialis Malaysia's activities, warning that if PAS Youth did not reform this trend may continue.

Conservative delegates who had not been happy at Mohamad's criticism, since even before the muktamar, had staged a walkout during the speech.

Sallehen also defended PAS' decisions in the Selangor crisis and warned against quarters trying to "make holes" in the ark which is the party.

Notwithstanding the brief fireworks the general tone today was reconciliatory and even Kuala Krai's delegate Zulifli Yacob had slammed PAS Youth for its walkout and instead urged a more diplomatic approach.

However, this tone may change tomorrow as more delegates take the stage, including those from the east coast states who have been critical of PAS leaders that advocate for continued cooperation in Pakatan. - mk
