Bekas menteri besar Terengganu Datuk Ahmad Said mempersoal alasan berkaitan notis awal digunakan bagi mengemukakan usul tidak percaya terhadap penggantinya Datuk Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman.
Ahmad Said menegaskan undi tidak percaya dikemukakannya tiada hak dihalang dan menteri besar hanya mempunyai pilihan membubarkan parlimen atau meletakkan jawatan bila ia berlaku.
“Kalau notis, I nak bunuh you, bagi notis 14 hari?” soalnya.
Speaker DUN Terengganu Datuk Mohd Zubir Embong petang ini menolak usul itu dan berkata kebenaran speaker diperlukan jika notis 14 hari dikecualikan.
Bercakap kepada Malaysiakini, Ahmad Said berkata jika peraturan itu digunakan, maka usul undi tidak percaya tidak akan berjaya dibentangkan sehingga hari kiamat sekalipun.
Katanya, usul itu tidak termasuk dalam peruntukan Fasal 33(11) peraturan mesyuarat DUN yang menyatakan perkara-perkara bawah perlembagaan negeri tidak memerlukan notis.
“Speaker salah guna kuasa sebab peraturan dewan tak boleh mengatasi perlembagaan.
“Speaker kata berdasarkan budi bicara, ini bukan soal budi bicara,” katanya.
ADUN Kijal itu membuat kejutan tengah hari tadi semasa sesi membahas titah Sultan Terengganu, Sultan Mizan Abidin dengan mahu membentang usul undi tidak percaya terhadap Menteri Besar Datuk seri Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman.
Mengulas lanjut, Ahmad Said berkata beliau masih adalah ahli Umno tetapi enggan mendedahkan tindakan seterusnya.
“(Saya) masih lagi ahli Umno, tengok perkembangan parti nak buat apa.
“Tak boleh beritahu. Takkan nak bagi tahu,” katanya.
Bekas menteri besar, bagaimanapun, tidak bimbang dengan sebarang tindakan sekiranya Umno mahu bertindak ke atasnya kerana membuat usul undi tidak percaya itu.
“Kalau (Umno) nak pecat, gantung, terpulang, dia berkuasa. Dia kan ada kuasa, dia buatlah,” katanya.
Ditanya apa yang mendorong beliau untuk membentangkannya usul itu, Ahmad berkata beliau telah berdiam diri selama hampir dua tahun.
“(Saya) dipaksa letak jawatan, kalau rakyat tak terima , saya terima.
“Apa salah saya, malukan saya sebegitu rupa, kita pun ada maruah juga,” katanya lagi.
Razif memulakan tugas pada Mei 2014 sebagai menteri besar menggantikan Ahmad Said yang dipaksa meletakkan jawatan setelah kemelut pertukaran kepimpinan tertinggi negeri itu.
Ahmad ketika itu dilapor membantah pertukaran itu, antaranya kerana ia timbul menjelang majlis perkahwinan anaknya.
Beliau malah mengambil keputusan drastik keluar Umno, tetapi menyertai kembali parti itu tidak berapa lama selepas itu.
Beliau kemudian dilihat bersama dalam beberapa acara dengan bekas perdana menteri Tun Dr Mahatir Mohamad yang lantang mengkritik pentadbiran Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak, terutamanya dalam isu 1MDB.
1MDB pada mulanya ditubuhkan dengan nama Terengganu Investment Authority (TIA) ketika era kepimpinan Ahmad. - mk
'Will I give notice to kill?' Ex-MB counters speaker's ruling...
Former Terengganu menteri besar Ahmad Said has employed a murderous and apocalyptical analogy to criticise the state assembly speaker’s rejection of his motion of no confidence against his successor.
Accusing the speaker, Mohd Zubir Embong, of “misusing his powers”, he disagreed with the contention that no notice was given for the motion.
“If I say I want to kill you, will I be giving a 14-day notice?” he asked.
Furthermore, he told Malaysiakini if this condition is applied, then a motion of no confidence cannot be filed until “kiamat” (apocalypse).
“The state assembly’s rules cannot supersede the constitution,” he stressed.
The Kijal assemblyperson stunned the house this afternoon when he tabled the motion against Menteri Besar Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman just before recess at 12.30pm.
When the sitting resumed at 2.30pm, the speaker dismissed the motion and ended the proceedings shortly after.
Meanwhile, Ahmad Said kept his cards close to his chest and refused to disclose if he would orchestrate a coup similar to what transpired in Kedah last month.
“I don’t know. I can’t reveal that to you,” he said when quizzed on the matter.
In Kedah, current menteri besar Ahmad Bashah Md Hanipah initiated an open war against his predecessor Mukhriz Mahathir by declaring in a press conference last month that the state Umno leadership had lost confidence in him.
Following this, Mukhriz, who is the son of former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad, was forced to relinquish his post.
Meanwhile, Ahmad said his next move would depend on Umno’s action against him for tabling the motion.
The former menteri besar, however, is unfazed.
“We’ll see. I am still an Umno member, so it depends on what the party is going to do.
‘”It’s up to them (Umno) if they want to expel or suspend me. They have the powers, so they can do it,” he added.
Asked what prompted him to table the motion, Ahmad pointed out that he had kept mum for almost two years.
“I was forced to resign. If the rakyat didn’t want me, I would understand. But what did I do to be humiliated in such a way? I have my dignity, too,” he said.
Ahmad was removed as Terengganu menteri besar and replaced with Razif in 2014.
This prompted Ahmad and two other Umno representatives to leave the party sparking off a crisis in the state.
The crisis ended two days later when Ahmad rejoined Umno after Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak apologised for removing him so close to his daughter's wedding.- mk
Najib Razak is the best example of what a big mistake is all about...
Najib Razak had shamelessly and without any moral conscience, quipped that Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad made a very big mistake in combining forces with the people from the Opposition and citizens in general, in a bid to oust him.
Obviously besieged from all angles, Najib had to give out a statement of self-preservation in order to save himself from being thrown out of the office.
And of course, he is in denial or rather purposely being oblivious as to why he needs to resign the first place.
And predictably, there were only feeble remonstrations against the Citizens’ Declaration by his sycophants. They could only dismiss, demonise, ridicule, putdown, pooh pooh and play down, remarkably without touching at all on the 30-odd points Tun Mahathir underscored on 1MDB, GST, economy, abuse of power etc that Najib failed to address since the scandals exploded.
The noises they created really are mind-boggling. Is UMNO truly beyond salvation?
There were many instances where Najib purposely and deftly maneuvered several actions that can be construed as abusing his position to curtail criticism and escape prosecution.
He lied to everyone when the news about RM2.6 billion exploded in July 2016. He was caught on video saying he never received any money in his personal bank accounts and had thanked a PAS leader for not believing the exposé by Wall Street Journal.
It was later discovered that there were indeed billions of money deposited in his accounts, after WSJ showed documented proof of the banking transactions. His whole propaganda machinery then had to think about something else, saying the money was a ‘donation’ to be used in 2013 general election.
And come UMNO general assembly in December 2015 after Najib had sacked his critics and forbid them to address UMNO members, Najib again had lied to everyone.
They haven’t thought about the fact that USD620 million was transferred out from his personal bank accounts right after the 2013 general election, although this was already an open secret at that time.
By January 2016, the specifically chosen Attorney General named Apandi Ali made the announcement that Najib is innocent and that USD620 million was ‘returned’ to the ‘donor’.
So who lied?
Raja Nong Chik? Najib Razak? Apandi Ali?
Who was lied to? The whole of Malaysia.
But we have the sycophants in UMNO saying nonsense and protecting their President at all cost. The conspiracy to de-criminalise Najib Razak oozes a stench that can be smelled all across the world.
Everywhere else, the crime similarly committed by Najib Razak will be tried in the courts and will be found guilty. Few days ago, a PKR leader was sentenced to two-years jail for misleading people to donate RM50,000 of ‘political donation’ in party accounts.
And Anwar Ibrahim was sentenced to 6-years jail back in 1999 for abuse of power, whereby directed the police to stop the investigation into his alleged sodomy case.
A Deputy Prime Minister was jailed 6 years for just hampering police investigation. Imagine what kind of jail term Najib Razak could get for abusing his power and arbitrarily using the law to strengthen his position.
If Anwar Ibrahim could see that what Najib Razak did is wrong, surely Najib must also face the same consequences as he once did. The fact that Anwar could agree and share the same sentiment with Tun Dr. Mahathir about Najib’s leadership behaviour proves to be a sure sign that Najib’s position is already untenable.
There were many other instances of the mistakes Najib had made. But sadly, he could not see all of it. His sycophants will ensure his downfall. Nobody in his circles are giving him the right advice. The amount of stupidity that is churned everyday just to prop up this Prime Minister is comical to say the least.
Najib should just look in the mirror and see what ‘a very big mistake’ really is.
If he still have the decency of a human being in knowing how to be shameful and modest enough to be accountable for every wrongdoing he committed, he and his cabinet needs to resign now so that the Agong can choose the next leader which could command the majority of MPs.- jebatmustdie
