Noh Omar cakap besaq...cubalah nasib hang di Kajang...


Noh Omar dicabar lawan Anwar Ibrahim...

Bekas calon Ketua Pemuda Umno 2013, Syed Rosli Syed Harman al Jamalulail mencabar Pengerusi Badan Perhubungan Umno Selangor, Datuk Seri Noh Omar bertanding mewakili BN menentang calon PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Katanya, ahli-ahli   Umno Selangor marah kerana Anwar bukan rakyat Selangor bertanding di Kajang.

“Oleh itu Noh Omar selaku pemimpin Umno nombor 1 di Selangor selaku anak jati Selangor mesti tunjukkan kejantanannya menentang Anwar,” kata beliau kepada FMT.

Katanya, soal kerusi Kajang milik MCA tidak timbul kerana di Gelang Patah, Johor pada PRU ke 13, MCA beri laluan kepada Umno bertanding mewakili BN melalui calonnya, Tan Sri Ghani Othman menentang calon DAP, Lim Kit Siang,

Beliau mencadangkan MCA beri laluan kepada Umno bertanding kerana majoriti pengundi Kajang adalah orang Melayu 48 peratus diikuti orang Cona 41 peratus dan orang India 10 peratus.

“Jika Umno diberi peluang bertanding, Noh Omar wajar dipilih sebagai calon kerana bekas Menteri Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani itu  setaraf dengan Anwar Ibrahim,” katanya.

Katanya lagi, jika Noh menang beliau akan menjadi Ketua Pembangkang di Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor.

“Semangat ahli-ahli Umno Selangor akan bertambah kuat jika Noh Omar menang dan justru itu ia memudahkan BN untuk merampas kembali Selangor dari tangan Pakatan Rakyat, pada PRU ke 14,”  katanya lagi.

Sementara itu Presiden Perkasa, Datuk Ibrahim Ali dalam smsnya menulis Perkasa tidak terlibat dalam PRK Kajang.

Ditanya adakah Perkasa akan menyokong calon MCA atau adakah Perkasa akan meletakkan calon Bebas di Kajang, beliau menulis, ” Perkasa tidak terlibat dalam PRK Kajang.Terima kasih”.- fmt

The jinx of the Selangor MB seat...

As the nation prepares to face another by-election, this time triggered by a tactical manouevre by PKR rather than an act of fate, speculation as to whether Abdul Khalid Ibrahim will remain the Selangor menteri besar is intensifying.

If PKR supremo Anwar Ibrahim wins the Kajang by-election and succeeds Abdul Khalid as the MB, Abdul Khalid would not be the first Selangor MB to be asked to pave way for political reasons.

There are at least four previous menteri besars who had to vacate their posts in the wake of controversies and pressure from their own political parties.

Harun Idris (1964-1976)

Having served as the MB for 12 years, Umno rising star Harun Idris was forced to quit when he was charged for corruption by the government.

Harun's role in the May 13, 1969 racial riots was called into question several times, but he survived the wave of pressure from his rivals to stay on for a second term as menteri besar.

But in 1976, he was sacked by Umno and subsequently charged with corruption for allegedly abusing state funds. This landed him a six-year jail term, although he was pardoned by the Agong soon after.

He is still Selangor's longest-serving MB.

Ahmad Razali Mohd Ali (1982-1986)

Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad's brother-in-law, Ahmad Razali, was an unpopular figure in Selangor Umno and only lasted one term after being appointed the top state post by Mahathir himself.

His term was marred by a reported incident during an Umno meet in Kg Pandan where a chair was allegedly thrown at him by a delegate. In 1983, one year after taking over as MB, Ahmad Razali saw the stage where he was launching the Thaipusam festival in Batu Caves collapsed, injuring 34 people.

He resigned in 1986 after four years as MB to make way to Muhammad Muhammad Taib.

Muhammad Muhammad Taib (1986-1997)

A hugely popular figure in Selangor Umno, albeit dogged by his own set of controversies, Muhammad Taib lasted 11 years as MB and was secured in his position until he was charged in Australia for currency irregularities amounting to RM3.8 million.

He step down from his post after he was charged, although the court later found him not guilty, based on his argument that he "did not understand English" and thus could not have known about the law restricting the bringing in of cash into Australia.

Muhammad Taib also reportedly eloped with the Selangor sultan’s daughter while he was MB and they allegedly got married in Thailand, though the couple have since divorced.

In the run-up to the 13th general election, he joined PAS and campaigned for the opposition party.

Abu Hasan Omar (1997-2000)

Abu Hasan Omar probably has the story that rings most familiarity with the current situation in Selangor.

A federal minister then, Abu Hasan swapped seats with Jamaludin Adnan in order to contest the Permatang state seat, and thus forcing two by-elections - Permatang and the Kuala Selangor parliamentary seat.

Strangely, he had also then called on the opposition "not to contest" the Permatang seat as to not to waste time and money.

However, a sex scandal, where he allegedly fathered a child with his sister-in-law ended his short-lived tenure, leading to his resignation in 2000. Mahathir admitted back then that Abu Hasan had to quit to stop the "slanders and lies" against the embattled MB.

Abu Hasan was replaced by Dr Mohd Khir Toyo, who led Selangor until he lost the state to Pakatan in the 2008 general election.

However, Khir faced a corruption allegation regarding a lavish mansion he had built in Shah Alam while being MB, though it was not until he lost his MB position that he was convicted.

He continued serving in the state opposition later until 2010 when he was found guilty and sentenced to a jail term.

Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (2008-?)


Abdul Khalid, who is eight months into his second term as MB, has faced stiff competition and challenges to his tenure mainly from rivals within his own party ever since he took the post five years ago. 

However, the attacks have increased in frequency following last year’s general elections.

After intense speculation, Kajang assemblyperson Lee Chin Cheh resigned abruptly earlier this week, paving the way for opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim to contest the seat in a by-election - believed to be with the intention of replacing Abdul Khalid as MB.

Ironically, Anwar had told BN not to contest the by-election.- malaysiakini

Najib - Rekonsiliasi Nasional OK, Kerajaan Perpaduang NO...


Kabinet setuju rekonsiliasi nasional dengan Pakatan...

Putrajaya akhirnya menyambut pelawaan Pakatan Rakyat (PR) apabila bersetuju mengadakan rekonsiliasi nasional dengan gabungan pembangkang tersebut, kata Datuk Seri Najib Razak (gambar) hari ini.

Keputusan tersebut dicapai selepas perdana menteri selesai berbincang dalam satu mesyuarat Kabinet hari ini.

"Dalam mesyuarat Kabinet hari ini, menteri saya dan saya meneliti rancangan untuk menubuhn dan mempromosikan suasana yang kondusif dan membantu mempromosikan rekonsiliasi nasional menerusi perpaduan dan konsensus dalam negara," kata Najib dalam satu kenyataan  hari ini.

Najib menggariskan empat perkara dalam rekonsiliasi nasional tersebut dan akan bertanggungjawab sebagai ketua dalam mencapai matlamat demi kebaikan untuk negara.

"Rancangan rekonsiliasi nasional itu akan berasaskan empat kunci utama iaitu sosial, politik, kerajaan dan hubungan antarabangsa dan melihat pada masa depan, saya akan mengetuai pelaksanaan perubahan ini dengan harapan membawa semua rakyat Malaysia berada dekat antara satu sama lain," kata Najib.

Najib juga yakin PR akan menyambut cadangan tersebut terutamanya selepas Ketua Pembangkang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim membuat tawaran sama baru-baru ini.

"Saya terharu dengan gesaan pembangkang yang mencadangkan satu konsensus dan saya yakin mereka akan mengalu-alukan perkembangan terbaru ini," katanya.

Bagi memastikan cadangan rekonsiliasi nasional tersebut dicapai, Najib menggesa semua pihak perlu bersedia berhenti daripada menyebarkan penipuan dan fitnah, serta menghentikan politik kebencian.

"Bagi semua mencapai ini, kita semua perlu berhenti menyebarkan penipuan dan fitnah, seterusnya menghentikan politik kebencian."

Selain itu, Najib juga berharap cadangan tersebut akan membawa hasil yang positif kepada generasi masa depan negara.

"Kita mesti bekerja ke arah Model Perpaduan Sosial bagi memastikan perpaduan kekal sebagai objektif bersama bagi generasi masa depan negara," katanya.

Bagaimanapun, Najib menegaskan rekonsiliasi nasional tersebut bukanlah sebuah pembentukan kerajaan perpaduan tetapi sebaliknya membuktikan keterbukaan kerajaan dalam mencapai kesepakatan dalam perkara tertentu.

"Ingin saya tegaskan di sini, rancangan ini bukan termasuk pembentukan apa-apa kerajaan perpaduan.

"Namun, kita mesti melihat untuk menjadi lebih inklusif dalam aktiviti dan majlis," katanya. - TMI. Baca seterusnya di sini

National reconciliation talks okay but no deal on unity government, says Najib


Are Najib’s days numbered...

A prominent Bloomberg columnist wrote today that judging from how Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and his "people" are circling around Datuk Seri Najib Razak, it is hard not to wonder if the prime minister's days are numbered.

Man under pressure... Najib is currently facing the toughest period of his premiership. - The Malaysian Insider pic, January 29, 2014.
In a short comment headlined "Are Najib's days numbered in Malaysia?", William Pesek noted that nostalgia for Dr Mahathir's rule was gaining momentum in the country.

"For many, the age of the mercurial Mahathir Mohamad (1981-2003) was a golden one of rising living standards and strong stances against the lecturing ways of the US and the International Monetary Fund.

"The decade since saw one hapless prime minister after another pledge major change that didn't materialise, Najib Razak being the latest," Pesek said.

The columnist's comments came after biting comments against Najib's rule from Umno veterans and politicians who say subsidy cuts will shrink support for the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) in the next general election due in 2018.

Najib is meeting his supporters in Kuala Lumpur tonight to address the criticisms and put word on the ground that he remains in charge and will see through his reforms.

Pesek also noted that Dr Mahathir led a campaign to oust Najib's predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who stepped down in 2009 after BN suffered historic losses in the 2008 general election.

"Are Najib's days numbered, too? Judging from how Mahathir and his people are circling, it's hard not to wonder," Pesek wrote.

The opposition party PKR had also cited the danger of Najib being unseated for their leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to contest a controversial by-election in a state seat to "fortify" Selangor, the country's wealthiest state.

Anwar had said he would explain his reasons for running in the Kajang by-election although his critics say it is a move to remove popular Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, who has had differences with the party leadership.-TMI

UMNO/BN mudah lupa...

Satu tamparan hinggap ke kepala Noh Omar

Ada beranikah...

Ke Putrajaya melalui Kajang...

Anwar ke Kajang pertahan Selangor daripada Umno jika Najib tersingkir...

PKR hari ini menjelaskan rasional di sebalik pengosongan kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Kajang dan meletakkan Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim sebagai calon adalah langkah menghadapi plot menyingkirkan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak dari dalam Umno oleh kem Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Pengarah Strategi PKR, Rafizi Ramli, berkata usaha untuk menyingkirkan Najib mula dijalankan kem bekas perdana menteri itu yang juga merupakan musuh utama kepada Anwar dalam kes  pemecatan bekas timbalan perdana menteri itu pada 1998. Rafizi minta maaf, mengaku beliaulah yang susun strategi itu...

Beliau juga memohon maaf atas perbezaan pendapat dalam PKR yang dilihat sebagai berpuak-puak dan mengecewakan rakyat dan menjelaskan ia sedang ditangani bagi mengelak pengalaman sama seperti dalam Pakatan Rakyat di Kedah sebelum ini.

"Sudah menjadi rahsia terbuka langkah untuk menyingkirkan Najib kini bermula.

"Sebagai seorang anggota strategi parti, saya tidak boleh menolak kemungkinan Najib disingkir dan Umno jatuh kepada kem ultra Dr Mahathir," katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.

Rafizi membayangkan perkara lebih buruk berlaku sebaik usaha tersebut berjaya kerana usaha untuk merampas negeri Selangor akan dilakukan sedaya upaya sebaik sahaja Najib tersingkir.

"Serangan dan rancangan tidak bermoral untuk sedaya upaya merampas Selangor akan bermula selepas Najib yang lemah disingkirkan," katanya.

Ahli Parlimen Pandan itu berkata, kontroversi agama dan perkauman yang dimainkan oleh Umno dan sekutu mereka sejak kebelakangan ini adalah isyarat jelas bahawa perkara di luar jangkaan mungkin berlaku.

"Jika Najib jatuh, diramalkan isu manipulasi perkauman dan agama akan dicipta untuk mewujudkan ketidakpercayaan dan kekecewaan kepada kerajaan negeri Selangor," katanya.

Rafizi berkata, langkah meletakkan Anwar bertanding di Kajang juga adalah sebagai batu loncatan kepada Pakatan Rakyat (PR) dalam usaha merampas pentadbiran Putrajaya daripada Barisan Nasional (BN).

"Istanbul menjadi batu loncatan kepada Erdogan dan Jakarta kepada Jokowi, Selangor boleh menjadi batu loncatan kepada Pakatan untuk merampas Putrajaya," katanya.



Sementara itu, katanya, PR memerlukan pemimpin tertinggi dan berkemampuan untuk mempertahankan Selangor daripada dirampas BN kerana negeri tersebut dianggap mutiara kepada mana-mana parti politik di Malaysia.

"Kita perlukan sebanyak mungkin pemimpin tertinggi di Selangor untuk mempertahankannya kerana ia merupakan mutiara kepada mana-mana gabungan parti politik di dalam negara," katanya.

Rafizi berkata, tidak mustahil suatu hari nanti kontroversi PKR di Kajang akan mengubah rentak strategi menuju ke Putrajaya.

"Kita boleh imbau ketika saat sukar yang akan dikenang sebagai 'Langkah Kajang' sebagai penentu dalam usaha menawan Putrajaya,” katanya.

Rafizi turut meminta maaf kepada pengundi Kajang kerana terpaksa berdepan satu lagi pilihan raya dan menegaskan PKR sedia menerima akibat sekiranya pengundi menghukum mereka.

PKR di Selangor ketika ini sedang bergolak selepas dikatakan wujud usaha untuk menjatuhkan menteri besar penggal kedua, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim daripada tampuk pemerintahan.

Krisis dan kontroversi tercetus sejak pengumuman kenaikan gaji oleh Abdul Khalid yang dikatakan tidak dibuat secara konsensus.

Kemudiaan disusuli dengan insiden pengguguran Timbalan Presiden PKR, Mohamed Azmin Ali daripada anak syarikat negeri Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Selangor (PKNS) baru-baru ini.

Kemelut PKR berterusan selepas Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Kajang, Lee Chin Cheh mengosongkan kerusinya pada Isnin.

Semalam, pengumuman dibuat oleh PKR untuk meletak Anwar sebagai calon di kerusi yang dianggap selamat untuk dimenangi.

Langkah meletak Anwar dilihat pengkritik sebagai usaha meredakan ketegangan antara kem Abdul Khalid dan Azmin yang menyukarkan pentadbiran Selangor. - TMI

BERSIH: PKR khianati kepercayaan pengundi

PRK KAJANG: Rafizi Minta Marah, Mengaku Beliaulah Yang Susun Strategi Itu

PKR apologises for Kajang fiasco...

I am aware that there is a lot of explanation that has to be made on the decision to vacate the Kajang seat to force a by-election. I am also acutely aware of Dato’ Ambiga’s advice communicated personally to me that we have to be as honest as possible with the people.

Apology to the public

So let me begin by offering the sincerest apology to the Malaysian public especially the voters of Kajang. The by-election will certainly consume public money and public space at the time when the people have to go through economic hardship.

There is no excuse for wasting public money except to offer my sincerest apology and for the party to be prepared if the voters of Kajang decide to punish us.

In all honesty, as the strongest proponent of the scheme I bear most responsibility for the decision.

Dynamics in Umno, racial and religious controversies

Yet precisely because we are honest to ourselves and the people, we have to acknowledge that there are problems and challenges that we are facing in Selangor that require intervention.

While Khalid Ibrahim’s administration has shown sterling performance over the last 6 years that endears him to the public, there are rooms for improvement in many areas especially given the latest dynamics in Umno.

It is an open secret that the move to remove Najib Razak has begun. As a party strategist, I cannot rule out the possibility that Najib is removed and Umno falls to the ultras led by Mahathir Mohamad’s faction.

The unscrupulous attack and schemes to take Selangor by hook or by crook will begin the moment the weak Najib is removed. Even as we speak, Umno’s cards are all too obvious in the latest round of racial and religious controversies stirred up in Selangor in the last few months.

Should Najib fall, expect a full blown manipulation of racial and religious issues to create mistrust and frustration with the Selangor government.

Model state as a launchpad for Putrajaya

While Khalid Ibrahim’s administration has set a gold standard in integrity and prudence in managing public funds, we also have to admit there are also other areas that we can improve. 

We need radical approach to solving the traffic woes, the pace of affordable public housing has to pick up. There is a need for more rigorous forward planning of water resources in Selangor and some hard decisions have to be made soon. We have to vigorously protect the rights of the minorities who are the targets of Umno’s political game.

As an MP, I certainly believe we can do better especially with regards to cleanliness and livelihood of the people. We have the potential to be a model state with least potholes in densely populated areas.

In other words, Selangor has to be doubly better than what it is today if it were to become a showcase for Pakatan in its quest for Putrajaya. Just as Istanbul was a launchpad for Erdogan and Jakarta is a launchpad for Jokowi, Selangor can be a great launchpad for Pakatan to take over Putrajaya.

Fortification of Pakatan in Selangor

The job is not done and we are about to face another round of onslaught from Umno.

Therefore, while it is certainly inexcusable to spend public fund unnecessarily in a by-election, it is an even bigger dereliction of public duty if we do not do anything, knowing that this round is going to be tougher.

What PKR and Pakatan Selangor need is a fortification so that we can expedite reforms and simultaneously fend off political attacks and manouvres from Umno. We need as many of our top leaders around Selangor to defend Selangor because it remains the crown jewel of any political coalition in the country.

Hence the decision to field Anwar Ibrahim for a state seat as this provides an option that we can readily exercise should the need arise.

Does this mean there will be a change of stewardship of Selangor government? Maybe yes, maybe no. But we do have the option to optimize our leadership potential if Umno stirs up more trouble.

Option is key. Having the option means having the flexibility of manouvres that can easily frustrate Umno’s game in Selangor especially with regards to racial and religious controversies.

T/Presiden PAS dengan nada bergurau kata kepada DSAI.."Ada tak lagi kerusi kosong..ana nak tanding." Hahaha...

Avoid the Kedah experience

At the end of the day, I know no amount of explanation can sooth the public anger. I only appeal for time to let the rationale sink in and space for us to do the necessary.

I also have to apologise on behalf of my party for the differences we have among ourselves that are seen as factional and often frustrates the public. Yet we trying our best to resolve it now for the sake of Malaysians, because not doing it now will certainly condemn us to the same experience of Pakatan in Kedah. We learn the lesson bitterly that differences must be managed early because the party always has to be whole to face Umno.

The game-changing Kajang Move

Good political leaders will never be popular. It pains me that we have to drag Anwar Ibrahim through this and subject him to public anger, yet his willingness to be a part of the bigger picture is the mark of the man.

Throughout the last few days, I reassured myself that it was Churchill who chose to be unpopular and remained a minority voice of alarm against the advancing Nazis till the end despite a public popularity to appease the Nazis. An the height of Nazi’s power, Churchill stood alone when every one else in Europe bowed to Hitler.

The conviction of doing the right thing, in the face of extreme criticism and public anger, remains a yardstick of what an honest leadership is.

I thank the top leadership of Pakatan who understand the necessity of doing this. I thank my comrades in the second leadership line up of Pakatan who have given the moral and political support for us to proceed.

I hope that one day when we are in Putrajaya, we can look back to the difficult days of what will be called the “Kajang Move” as the game changer in our quest for Putrajaya. I honestly hope that it will our defining moments that allow us one step closer to Putrajaya.

I maybe naïve and ridiculed for my naivette, but that’s as honest as I can be.


Let’s look ahead for a stronger Pakatan in Selangor posed to take over Putrajaya in the next election and don’t look back.- Rafizi Ramli,Media Rakyat

PAS dah naik angin,mau boikot dan mau YBnya dari PAS jadi MB...

ITULAH POLITIK... 

PAS ‘naik angin’, mahu boikot...

PAS kesal dengan tindakan bekas Adun Kajang Lee Chin Cheh dari PKR yang meletakkan jawatan tanpa sebab yang munasabah.


Ketua Penerangan Dewan Ulamak PAS Pusat Dr Mohd Khairuddin Aman Razali at-Takiri(kiri) berkata, pihaknya menuntut penjelasan munasabah daripada PKR kerana pilihanraya kecil akan mengorbankan banyak masa, tenaga dan harta rakyat.

“Rakyat melihat situasi ini dengan penuh prihatin.

“Pergolakan kecil politik Selangor melibatkan jawatan Menteri Besar dan isu PKNS ditambah pula dengan perletakan jawatan ini boleh memualkan rakyat di saat rakyat dibelenggu dengan pelbagai isu negara khususnya melibatkan peningkatan kos hidup,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan hari ini.

Menyifatkannya sebagai politik picisan, Mohd Khairuddin turut mengingatkan isu ini mampu menggugat keyakinan rakyat kerana Pakatan Rakyat sepatutnya fokus kepada mendedahkan kegagalan kerajaan Barisan Nasional (BN) mengurus ekonomi negara.

Katanya, Pakatan Rakyat perlu menilai semula sejarah Pilihan Raya Umum ke-12 (PRU12) yang menyaksikan beberapa wakil rakyat dari PKR melompat dan meninggalkan parti yang telah merugikan dan menggugat keutuhan Pakatan Rakyat.

Manakala sejarah PRU ke-13 pula dimulakan dengan perletakan jawatan Adun.

“Nasihat ini saya lontarkan sebagai peringatan bersama seluruh warga Pakatan Rakyat khususnya para pemimpinnya,” katanya.

PAS, parti tupperware?


Sementara itu Ahli Parlimen Temerloh Nasruddin Hassan Tantawi(pix,bawah)  berkata, pihaknya kecewa kerana PKR tidak pernah berbincang dengan PAS mengenai konflik di Selangor sehingga menyebabkan berlakunya pilihan raya kecil Kajang.

“PAS ini apa ? Parti Tupper Ware? Tak bincang sepatah? Tak runding sikit pun? Politik apa ini? Cara dan skil mana digunakan,” soalnya

Katanya, PKR tidak sepatutnya mempermainkan amanah rakyat yang berkerja, berjuang dan mengundi bersungguh-sungguh dalam PRU lalu.

“Saat rakyat berhempas pulas mencari sesuap nasi berdepan dengan kos sara hidup yang tinggi, kenaikan harga barang yang melambung.

“Tak pasal-pasal cipta pilihanraya kecil dengan drama realiti perletakan jawatan,” katanya.



Manakala Pengarah Jabatan Pilihanraya Dewan Pemuda PAS Malaysia Mohd Sany Hamzan berkata, pihaknya menuntut penjelasan yang munasabah daripada Lee terhadap perletakan jawatan beliau secara bertulis kepada Ketua Dewan pemuda PAS Malaysia dengan kadar segera.

“Sekiranya penjelasan yang diberikan tidak munasabah maka Jabatan Pilihanraya Dewan Pemuda PAS Malaysia memberi amaran akan mengeluarkan arahan kepada seluruh jentera pilihanraya pemuda PAS di semua peringkat untuk tidak memberikan kerjasama di dalam Pilihanraya Kecil DUN Kajang nanti sekiranya calon yang ditentukan masih lagi dari kalangan calon PKR,” tegasnya.

Beliau menganggap tindakan Lee sebagai satu pengkhianatan amanah yang diberikan rakyat Selangor  serta membelakangkan semangat ‘syura’ di kalangan Pakatan Rakyat Selangor.

Beliau juga kecewa terhadap pimpinan PKR Selangor yang mengamalkan agenda ‘politik egois’ dan ‘besar kepala’ dengan membelakangkan PAS dan DAP Selangor di dalam kerja buat mereka di Selangor.


“PKR Selangor berlagak seperti ‘boss besar’ yang boleh mengambil apa saja tindakan politik yang menguntungkan mereka tanpa persetujuan dan pandangan rakan-rakan parti PAS dan DAP sedangkan PKR Selangor hanyalah ‘pemegang saham minoriti’ di dalam Kerajaan PR Selangor,” katanya.-fmt

Sementara otai2 PKR, PAS, DAP belum bercakap..biarlah budak2 mereka beromong omong apa yang mereka suka...asal jngan sampai bertumbuk sudahlah...lepas tu , berbaik baiklah..bersalaman sesama sendiri n bersatu teguh....

Why Anwar should not be the MB...

Anwar Ibrahim’s announcement that he will be contesting the Kajang state seat has left political analysts shaking their heads in disapproval, as they believe that it will only mar the opposition chief’s image as well as chances of becoming a federal leader.

Anwar in a one line remark today said he is not eying the top position in the country’s richest state but Professor Dr James Chin of Sunway Monash University surmised that it could be the only reason for Anwar to contest the state seat.

“But this is a major misstep for Anwar, because what he is signaling is that he is on the same level of (Penang Chief Minister) Lim Guan Eng, which he is not; he is higher.

“Anwar’s plan has always been to take over the federal government and become prime minister. Now the message he is sending to the public is that since he can’t become prime minister, he will settle for Selangor menteri besar,” Chin told FMT.

Chin pointed out that should Anwar secure the post, he would have to deal first-hand with “petty issues” that may seem unbecoming of a federal leader, such as water, rubbish collection, potholes, massage parlours and illegal posters.

The rakyat would also judge Anwar’s performance as a menteri besar and to reflect his leadership abilities at the federal level – which may jeapordise his chances as prime minister if he fails to live up to expectations.

“And Selangorians are an educated, urban lot. If they are unhappy with the services of the state government, they will definitely make their grievances public. This is how Ronnie Liu was brought down,” the political analyst said.

He further stressed that it would be no easy task to juggle as the Selangor MB, the Opposition Leader and the Permatang Pauh MP, as the MB’s position requires hands-on responsibilities.

“But perhaps he thinks becoming Selangor MB is the right move as Selangor, like Penang, is almost guaranteed to remain in Pakatan Rakyat’s hands in the next general election,” said Chin.

“For instance, Lim’s position as Penang Chief Minister is guaranteed, that’s why he can run around. Maybe Anwar has made the same calculations: that no matter what he does, he will survive.”

In a statement yesterday, Professor Dr Agus Yusoff of Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia also described it as a wrong move for Anwar.


He pointed out that many see the move as a bid to resolve the Khalid Ibrahim-Azmin Ali spat, and the Pakatan Rakyat partners may not be happy with Anwar gunning for the role of menteri besar.

“Many see Khalid as a man of integrity and free of corruption, even if he is stingy with the state coffers,” said Agus.

He said Anwar was better off focusing on national consensus than creating new political conflicts.

“[They] should be looking for a win-win situation between the government and the people, and between the Barisan Nasional government and Pakatan. The rakyat want the political conflicts to end with a happy ending.”



Not easy to become MB

But both Agus and Chin said it would not be a smooth road ahead for Anwar if he truly wished to head the state of Selangor.

“First of all, he would still need the support of his partners in Pakatan, and secondly, he would need  the Sultan Selangor’s approval. This is because the power to appoint the menteri besar is with the Sultan,” said Agus.

Elaborating on this, Chin told FMT: “First, Khalid has to get the consent of the Sultan of Selangor to step down. If the Sultan refuses to accept, then this would be a problem.

“Whatever (the intricacies) of the Sultan’s relationship with Khalid, Khalid has not disturbed the Sultan. And while the Sultan has expressed his unhappiness over Khalid a few times, the Sultan has never asked or demanded that he be replaced.”

Whatever card Anwar was holding, Chin said, must be very strong to override the Sultan’s possible objections to the former becoming menteri besar.

He also added that it was up to the Sultan’s discretion to end the tradition of appointing only Selangor-borns to become the menteri besar – an unwritten rule in the state that a local newspaper speculated would disqualify Anwar for the top post in the state.




Selangor MB is small potatoes for Anwar

Meanwhile, Dr Lim Teck Ghee, the director of the Centre for Policy of Initiatives was reluctant to believe Anwar would make the mistake of going for the menteri besar post.

“The menteri besar post is actually small potatoes for Anwar, I don’t see how he, who is gunning for the premiership which he has been fixated on for years, would settle for something like this, especially towards the end of his critical career.”

Lim said it was more likely that Anwar was contesting the Kajang seat to bring unity into PKR and Pakatan in Selangor, which has been fraught with tension due to the spat between Khalid and Azmin.

“My reading of Anwar’s move to contest in Kajang is to ensure that Pakatan and PKR’s position in Selangor remains,” he told FMT.

He said Pakatan’s position in Selangor was currently precarious as they do not hold a big majority, so adding Anwar to the state assembly may help the situation.

“It may also be seen as an affirmation of Khalid Ibrahim’s leadership – to quell any concerns that there is any rivalry between Khalid and Anwar,” said the political analyst.

“So this move will bring unity to the fold and bring confidence to Khalid’s position.”


Yesterday, the Kajang PKR assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh announced he was resigning his position for the “common interest” of the party, sparking speculation that it was to pave way for Anwar to take over his position as state assemblyman and position himself as the new menteri besar.-fmt

PAS candidate for MB

Selangor PAS, meanwhile, said it is watching with interest for seismic changes within PKR.

It will intervene and propose its own candidate for MB if there is indeed a bid to oust the incumbent, Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, as is being speculated.

"Why wouldn't we want our own candidate? PAS has the most seats in the state assembly," said state party secretary Mohd Khairuddin Othman in a separate statement.

"Selangor PAS asks members at all levels to remain calm and wait for directions from the party."

Mohd Khairuddin said Selangor PAS’ preferred candidate for MB would include its chief commissioner Iskandar Abdul Samad.

“We will send his name for PAS central leaders to consider and it will then be up to them to decide."

However, he reaffirmed that the party will not rock Selangor but work toward bringing about stability.

PAS and DAP each hold 15 seats in the Selangor state assembly, compared to PKR’s 14. BN has 12 seats.- malaysiakini


Stand down as Permatang Pauh MP, Anwar told

Macai2 UMNO kalian minta lu punya bos cadang Rosmah sebagi calon BN... 

Ragam Selangor...

It can be seen that they charged 1 plate of plain white rice for RM3, 1 piece of normal-sized fried chicken for RM10, and the worst part is, a couple of papadoms priced at a humongous amount of RM12!
cheers.

Jibby dan Din pun pernah jadi MB juga...


Anwar: Dari PM turun pangkat ke MB pula...

Pagi semalam pejabat Menteri Besar Selangor menafikan Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim akan meletakkan jawatan. Begitu juga Penasihat PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim menafikan akan menjadi Menteri Besar menggantikan Khalid.

Begitulah orang politik. Hari ini nafi, esok jadi kenyataan. Petang semalam ADUN Kajang, Lee Chin Cheh meletakkan jawatan. Jadi khabar-khabar angin Anwar akan bertanding pada pilihanraya kecil (PRK) Kajang begitu kuat bertiup.

Pagi ini Khalid mengesahkan Anwar akan jadi calon PKR pada PRK Kajang nanti. Adakah PRK Kajang membazir? Sudah tentu bagi SPR membazir kerana ia terpaksa diadakan walaupun wakil rakyatnya tidak meninggal dunia.

Rakyat Kajang sudah tentu marah kepada PKR kerana menyusahkan mereka kerana mereka kena keluar mengundi semula selepas lapan bulan memilih wakil rakyat mereka. Menurut bekas calon Ketua Pemuda Umno 2013, Syed Rosli Syed Harman al Jamalulail PKR tidak boleh disalahkan kerana ia adalah jalan terbaik untuk meletakkan calon MB baru menggantikan Khalid.

Jika Khalid digantikan oleh Pengerusi PKR Selangor, Azmin Ali sebagai Menteri Besar, sudah tentu Khalid tidak mahu. Maka jalan terbaik terpaksa menurunkan Anwar Ibrahim untuk meredakan pertelingahan di antara Khalid dengan Azmin.

Inilah akibatnya PKR tidak mengamalkan konsep parti menguasai kerajaan. Jika PKR amal konsep ini, Azmin selaku Pengerusi PKR Selangor yang sepatutnya jadi menteri besar dan bukannya Khalid Ibrahim.

Sebagai bekas tokoh korporat, Khalid bijak mengurus negeri tetapi sebagai orang politik beliau gagal. Ini yang menimbulkan kemarahan para penyokong PKR. Khalid dikatakan boneka Elizabeth Wong di mana banyak projek pembangunan di Selangor Elizabeth yang cadang, Khalid terus setuju.

Menurut Syed Rosli lagi, kenapa marah kepada PKR terpaksa membazirkan wang rakyat untuk buat PRK Kajang sedangkan PKR mencontohi BN. Pada tahun 1997, BN sanggup mengadakan PRK Permatang untuk membolehkan Tan Sri Abu Hassan Omar dilantik sebagai Menteri Besar menggantikan Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd Taib.

Jadi PKR meniru BN mengadakan PRK Kajang untuk membolehkan Anwar Ibrahim dilantik sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor. Soalnya, adakah rakyat Pulau Pinang boleh menjadi Menteri Besar Selangor?



Menurut ADUN Kelana Jaya, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, dalam perlembagaan Selangor tidak mengatakan hanya rakyat Selangor sahaja yang layak jadi menteri besar.Soalnya, sanggupkah Sultan Selangor beri perkenan kepada Anwar Ibrahim sebagai menteri besar?

Jika Sultan Selangor tidak berkenan, maka krisis Selangor akan menjadi lebih buruk lagi. Atau mungkin Azmin Ali yang terpaksa dilantik sebagai menteri besar yang baru kerana beliau adalah anak Selangor.

Kesanggupan Anwar menjadi calon Menteri Besar Selangor turut dipersoal. Selama ini beliau mahu jadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia, kenapa tiba-tiba beliau mahu menjadi Menteri Besar Selangor pula?

Adakah kerana cita-citanya nak jadi Perdana Menteri sudah tidak nampak jalan lagi? Majoriti rakyat tetap bersama BN maka Presiden Umno selama-lamanya akan menjadi perdana menteri maka peluang Anwar tidak akan menjadi kenyataan selama-lamanya.

Menyedari hakikat ini, maka baginya lebih baik menjadi Menteri Besar daripada menjadi Perdana Menteri yang mustahil sama sekali. Bukankah Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dan Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin juga pernah jadi Menteri Besar?

Atau adakah Anwar mengorbankan dirinya dengan menerima jawatan yang lebih rendah semata-mata untuk menyelamatkan PKR pada PRU ke 14? 

Beliau nampak jika krisis dalaman PKR tidak selesai maka Selangor akan jadi seperti Kedah. PAS Kedah tewas pada PRU ke 13 kerana perebutan kuasa sesama para pemimpin PAS.

Sama-samalah kita tunggu apabila Anwar menang nanti dalam PRK Kajang, beliau akan dilantik sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor atau tidak. Atau adakah Anwar akan mencatat sejarah sebagai orang luar yang pertama yang akan dilantik sebagai Menteri Besar Selangor? Manusia hanya merancang, Allah yang menentukan.-fmt

PAS, DAP sokong Anwar tanding di Kajang

Selangor bakal melayang seperti Kedah... 

Khalid di'mangsa'kan?, 'Kajang' melipat layu...Anwar masih ber'dengus' kot?


The MB must be must be an 'anak jati' Selangor...

Anwar Ibrahim will be the Pakatan Rakyat candidate for the Kajang state seat by-election, said Selangor Menteri  Besar Khalid Ibrahim today.

Speaking to reporters at the PKR headquarters here, Khalid said this was a collective decision made by Pakatan.

He also confirmed that that PKR’s Lee Chin Cheh had resigned as the state rep effective yesterday but did not state his (Lee’s) reasons for doing so.

At the same press conference, Anwar thanked Lee for his service as the state rep.

Anwar also said he was chosen as the candidate to ensure a strong victory in the by-election.

Lee in a statement late yesterday had said that he was stepping down for the common good of Pakatan.

The announcement of Anwar as the candidate adds credence to speculations that he is going to replace Khalid as the state MB if he wins the by-election.

The PKR hierarchy feels this is the only way to stop the bitter infighting between Khalid and Azmin Ali, who is the Selangor PKR chief and party deputy president, from causing further division in the party.

However concerns are being raised if the Sultan of Selangor would agree to the idea of Anwar becoming the state MB.



Constitutional crisis in Selangor?

Popular blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin said that the candidate being proposed to replace Khalid as the MB must be Selangor born.

“If this person were to be an outsider, meaning not Selangor born, then His Highness would never consent to this person taking over as the new Selangor Menteri Besar,” he said in his latest posting in his Malaysia-Today portal. Anwar, who is the Permatang Pauh MP, was born in Penang.

Raja Petra, a Selangor royalty in close contact with the royal household, also questioned if the Selangor Sultan would consent to Khalid being removed and replaced with Anwar.

“And does His Highness have the authority to say no?

Lastly, how's the Sultan relationship with Anwar? Remember 2012 National Day celebration event?

“In Perlis, Perak (on two occasions), Terengganu (on two occasions), Pahang, Johor, Negeri Sembilan, and even in Selangor on one occasion in the past, the state rulers have had a say in who becomes Menteri Besar. So why should that change now?

“And if His Highness says no to Khalid being removed and replaced with an outsider, are we going to see a constitutional crisis in Selangor like what we saw in Perak in 2009 plus many other states before this?” he asked.

Anwar: I am not replacing Khalid

However Anwar told the media that he would not be replacing Khalid as the MB even if he wins the Kajang seat. He did not elaborate on this.

He further said that Barisan Nasional should not contest in the by-election if the Election Commission was concerned about the election expenses.

Azmin meanwhile said the decision to pick Anwar as the candidate was a collective one made by the party, and that he was happy with it.

When reporters asked Khalid if he supported Anwar’s candidacy,  he said: “If I did not agree, I won’t be here”.

In the 2013 general election, first-timer Lee won the Kajang seat for PKR in a six-cornered fight with 6,824-vote majority.

He garnered 19,571 votes, followed by BN-MCA’s Lee Ban Seng with 12,747 votes and Berjasa’s Mohamad Ismail (1,014). Three independents got between 83 and 249 votes each.

A defeat for Pakatan in this by-election would not affect Pakatan’s control of the state as it won 44 of the 56 state seats in the last GE. BN won the remaining 12.- fmt

Bekas ADUN Kajang - Gua mau kasi PR lagi kuat ma...


Saya letak jawatan untuk kukuh Pakatan Selangor, kata Adun Kajang...

Bekas Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (Adun) Kajang dari PKR Lee Chin Cheh yang meletakkan jawatan hari ini mengatakan beliau mengosongkan kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) untuk kepentingan Pakatan Rakyat (PR) di Selangor.

Lee yang baru sahaja menjadi Adun selepas pilihan raya 5 Mei lalu juga mengucapkan terima kasih kepada pengundi Kajang yang memberikan kepercayaan kepadanya untuk berkhidmat.

"Keputusan saya untuk mengosongkan kerusi DUN N25 Kajang adalah untuk kepentingan bersama dan mengukuhkan kebolehan Pakatan Rakyat berkhidmat untuk rakyat Selangor," kata Lee dalam satu kenyataan kepada The Malaysian Insider.

"Saya mengucapkan jutaan terima kasih dan terhutang budi kepada semua pengundi di Kajang yang telah memberi peluang kepada saya menjadi wakil rakyat DUN N25 Kajang."

Sumber PKR mengatakan peletakan jawatan Lee bertujuan untuk memberi laluan kepada Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim bertanding di kerusi tersebut bagi membolehkan Ahli Parlimen Permatang Pauh itu menggantikan Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim sebagai menteri besar Selangor.

Bagaimanapun satu lagi sumber mengatakan Pengarah Strategi PKR Rafizi Ramli bakal mengisi kekosongan kerusi DUN tersebut.

Surat peletakan jawatan Lee diserahkan kepada Speaker DUN Selangor Hannah Yeoh hari ini.

Lee, 42, merupakan seorang peguam dan bekas ahli parti Gerakan selama 10 tahun.

Bekas Ahli Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya itu menggantikan Lee Kim Sin yang popular sebagai Adun Kajang dalam PRU13.

Dalam PRU13, Lee mendapat 19,571 undi berbanding calon Barisan Nasional Lee Ban Seng yang mendapat 12,747 undi.

Menurut undang-undang, kata Yeoh, Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya harus mengadakan pilihan raya di kerusi DUN Kajang dalam tempoh 60 hari. 

The Star Online melaporkan pagi ini Abdul Khalid sudah bersetuju untuk meletak jawatan sebagai menteri besar dalam masa terdekat.

Laporan yang memetik sumber dalaman PKR itu menyebut Abdul Khalid dijangka akan mengumumkan keputusan berkenaan pada Rabu ini.

Mereka berkata, Anwar akan menggantikan Abdul Khalid sebagai menteri besar.

Bagaimanapun, kedua-dua Abdul Khalid dan Anwar menafikan laporan itu.

Peletakan jawatan Lee sebagai Adun Kajang menguatkan lagi dakwaan tersebut.

Lewat petang tadi Abdul Khalid mengatakan beliau bersedia melepaskan jawatannya sekiranya PR sudah mencapai konsensus mengenai penggantinya.
    
"Saya boleh berundur sekiranya pakatan pembangkang mencapai konsensus untuk menggantikan saya tetapi tiada perbincangan mengenainya sehingga kini," katanya kepada pemberita selepas menghadiri majlis pelancaran buku 'Maps of Malaya and Borneo: Discovery, Statehood and Progress' di Kuala Lumpur, hari ini. 

Selepas pilihan raya umum ke-13, PKR hanya mendapat 14 kerusi DUN berbanding DAP dan PAS yang masing-masing mendapat 15 kerusi. – TMI

Singkir Khalid - Jangan rugi segantang laba secupak!!!

Anwar Ibrahim bakal masuk UMNO???

Khalid: Tukar MB mesti mendapat konsensus PR, seterusnya mendapat perkenan Sultan.

Kajang assemblyman says his resignation will strengthen Pakatan Rakyat...

Former Kajang state assemblyman Lee Chin Cheh said today he had resigned from his position for the greater good of Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor.

Lee, who became a state assemblyman for the first time following the 13th general election last year, thanked the Kajang voters for their trust in him.

"My decision to vacate my position is to help strengthen Pakatan Rakyat's capabilities in Selangor so that they can serve the rakyat better," he told The Malaysian Insider.

"I humbly thank the people of Kajang for the trust and faith they have shown to me when they voted for me to represent them."

A source from PKR revealed that Lee had stepped aside so that de facto party leader and Permatang Pauh MP Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim could contest the seat.

"A win for Anwar will enable him to replace Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim as the Selangor Menteri Besar," the source said.

However, another source had a different version of events, saying that PKR strategy director Rafizi Ramli would contest the Kajang state assembly seat.

Lee's resignation letter was handed over to Selangor legislative speaker Hannah Yeoh today.

Lee, 42, is a lawyer and former Gerakan member of 10 years before he switched allegiances.

The former Petaling Jaya town council exco member had succeeded the popular Lee Kim Sin as the Kajang state assemblyman in the 13th general election.

In the May polls last year, Lee garnered 19,571 votes, defeating Barisan Nasional candidate Lee Ban Seng, who received 12,747 votes.



Under the law, the Election Commission has to call for a by-election for the Kajang state assembly seat within 60 days of Lee's resignation.

The Star reported this morning that Abdul Khalid had agreed to resign as the Selangor Menteri Besar in the near future. The report quoted a PKR source as saying that Abdul Khalid was expected to announce his decision on Wednesday.

Speculation is rife that Anwar will replace Abdul Khalid as the Menteri Besar. However, both men have denied the report.

Lee's resignation as the Kajang state assemblyman has merely strengthened the speculation.

Earlier this evening, Abdul Khalid said he was prepared to resign as the Selangor Menteri Besar if Pakatan Rakyat had reached a consensus about his successor.

"I can withdraw if the party has identified my successor, but until now, there has been no discussion about the issue," he said.

In the 13th general election, PKR won 14 state assembly seats compared to 15 each for DAP and PAS.- tmi
