Najib,RAMD dilindungi Perlembagaan...
Rejimen Askar Melayu Diraja (RAMD) tidak mungkin dibubar walau apa juga keadaan kerana pasukan itu dilindungi Perlembagaan Persekutuan dan Majlis Raja-Raja kata tokoh perlembagaan Dr Abdul Aziz Bari.
Beliau berkata demikian ketika ketika diminta mengulas dakwaan Perdana Menteri, Najib Razak baru-baru ini yang membangkitkan persoalan RAMD mungkin dibubar kerana tidak sesuai dengan konsep ‘Malaysian Malaysia’.
Tegas Aziz, apa pun maksud ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ – termasuk ketakutan dan pembohongan dari UMNO, RAMD tetap tidak boleh dimansuhkan.
“Pertama RAMD ada perlindungan perlembagaan; ia dikecualikan daripada prinsip sama rata yang menjadi tonggak perlembagaan – lihat Perkara 8 Perlembagaan Persekutuan.
“Kedua Majlis Angkatan Tentera yang merupakan badan tertinggi yang mentadbirkan ATM turut dianggotai oleh wakil Majlis Raja-Raja.
“Adalah sukar untuk memansuhkan sesuatu yang penubuhannya diminta oleh Raja-Raja sendiri (pada tahun 1933),” katanya kepada Roketkini.
Perkara yang sama ujarnya terpakai terhadap segala dakwaan dan momokan UMNO selama ini yang bertujuan menakut-nakutkan orang Melayu.
“Sama seperti dakwaan UMNO yang kononnya DAP akan memansuhkan institusi raja, kedudukan Islam, bahasa Melayu dan juga kedudukan istimewa Melayu,” jelasnya menegaskan bahawa semua hak dan kedudukan istimewa itu dilindungi Perlembagaan.
Ahli Jawatankuasa DAP Selangor itu turut menempelak dongeng kononnya kakitangan awam perlu setia kepada parti yang memerintah.
“Angkatan tentera, polis dan kakitangan perkhidmatan awam perlu memberi taat setia kepada Raja dan negara dan bukannya kepada Perdana Menteri atau parti yang memerintah.
“Mereka boleh mengundi apa juga parti yang mereka yakini; cuma tidak boleh terlibat secara langsung dalam politik,” katanya lagi. – Roketkini.com
Najib set to win 165 seats
with Hadi's help...
165 Parliamentary seats. That’s how many BN will win in GE14, or so this chap close to the ruling coalition’s election think-tank wanted me to know. If so, it means these people are confident of not just getting the two-thirds but are sure PM Najib Razak will lead the coalition in crossing the 148-seat mark comfortably, almost nonchalantly even.
Honestly, I get uncomfortable when people get that over-confident. In GE12 2008, some of the think-tankers were so confident BN would repeat the emphatic 2004 victory that they prayed that PAS would retain Kelantan, at least, “so that BN doesn’t get too cocky”.
In GE13 2013, new and younger think-tankers told me with utmost certainty that Lembah Pantai would fall to BN. So, very confident one. But on both occasions they were right where it mattered most to BN: the coalition led by Abdullah Ahmad Badawi won the GE12 even though it lost the two-thirds majority in Parliament and the coalition again won the GE13, led by Najib, with 134 seats, 14 shy of the two-thirds majority.
So, what I think of 165 seats? Sorry, I don’t think that’s going to happen. But, having said that, I did mean to ask this chap close to the think-tankers if the 165 included seats that PAS would win in the coming PRU (the Islamic party won 21 parliamentary seats in GE13). After all, if you go by yesterday’s proceedings on the Anti-Fake News Bill in the Dewan Rakyat, the BN and PAS MPs voted as if they were a coalition.
A sign of things to come after GE14? - rockybru
Hadi’s motion coming up
again at Dewan...
Manoeuvring in Parliament suggests that BN may pull an ambush on Pakatan Harapan tomorrow that would put the opposition MPs in a tough spot.
The government appears to have cleared the way for PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang's private member's bill motion to amend the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965, also known as Act 355, to be debated in the Dewan Rakyat tomorrow.
Hadi's motion was item number five on the Order Paper today. It was preceded by bills to amend the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Act 2009, Fire Services Act 1988 and the Civil Law Act 1956, as well as a simple amendment to the second schedule to the Financial Procedure Act 1957.
The amendments to the MACC Act 2009 and Fire Services Act 1988 were passed today.
In a surprise development, the government also retracted the proposed amendment to the Civil Law Act – leaving only the scheduled amendment, which does not require the same rigorous process and which can be passed quickly. This would then allow for Hadi's motion to be debated and possibly voted on.
Stating its stance
Harapan, which has kept its position on Hadi’s motion ambiguous, may see its MPs being forced to make their stance public.
The motion proposes that the maximum punishments in Act 355 be increased from three years’ imprisonment, RM5,000 fine, and six strokes of the rotan, to 10 years’ imprisonment, RM100,000 fine, and 100 strokes of the rotan. The increased punishment will allow states to impose punishment for certain offences that are consistent with hudud.
Unlike a government bill where changes to a law are debated in the second and third readings and immediately approved, a private member's bill motion will not go through a third reading even if it is approved during the second.
Instead, the private member's bill will be referred to a government committee that will decide whether to accept the proposed changes or simply ignore it. This means that technically, the second reading of Hadi's motion will have little significance in terms of actually changing Act 355, as the government would still have the final say.
However, Hadi's bill is politically charged, leaving any Muslim opposition MPs who vote against the motion or abstain open to potential accusations of wavering in their commitment to Islam. But forcing a vote could even rekindle discontent within BN's own ranks. With the exception of Umno, all of BN's component parties are also against Hadi's motion.
It is unclear if BN component parties have been informed of the possibility of Hadi's motion being allowed to be debated. Prior to this, MCA had taken credit for the government repeatedly postponing the bill, which was first tabled in 2015.
The only party that will have no qualms supporting the motion is PAS and its 13 MPs. PAS may even force a bloc vote, that will require individual MPs to put their preference on record. However, PAS is two MPs short of the quorum of 15 required of trigger bloc voting. Unless it can find another two MPs to back the move, it is unlikely to do so.
Stemming the tsunami
The manoeuvring comes a day before an expected dissolution of Parliament. While a vote on the motion could hurt both BN and Harapan, the latter would likely take the most damage, as it could blunt Harapan's attempt to generate a ‘Malay tsunami’ against the ruling coalition.
A Malay tsunami would only be possible with the backing of the rural Malay heartland, which is disproportionately represented in Parliament, and largely conservative in its religious outlook. If the motion is passed and handed over to a government committee, it will also allow BN to dangle the proposed amendment to Act 355 as a campaign pledge.
Whether the manoeuvring goes ahead tomorrow morning will also depend on 11th-hour negotiations between Umno and its BN partners. If BN changes its mind, it can always reintroduce other government bills, which take precedence over a private member's bill motion, or even call it a day for the Dewan Rakyat, which is sitting for the last day tomorrow. - mk
