Pas tidak kesah tidak boleh menang di peringkat pusat dalam pilihan raya umum ke 14 lalu kerana hutang terlalu banyak.
Naib Presiden Pas, Datuk Mohamad Amar Nik Abdullah berkata, Pas akan mengambil alih kerajaan pusat dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang.
“Ambo (saya) pun suka tidak boleh perintah Malaysia lagi. Sebab hutang banyak, nak bayar macam mana.
“Jadi Tuhan bagi orang lain ambil dulu, selesaikan hutang Malaysia. Lima tahun lagi kita ambil Malaysia,” kata beliau dalam satu ucapannya di Kota Bharu.
Menurutnya, apabila parti lain menang di Malaysia, mereka akan selesaikan segala masalah yang ada, termasuk isu 1MDB.
“Selepas selesai semuanya, kawe (kita) pula akan ambil lima tahun lagi. Kita pula duduk di sana,” kata beliau.
Menurut Timbalan Menteri Besar Kelantan itu, perkara sama berlaku apabila Pas kalah di Kelantan pada tahun 1978 dulu.
“Serupa kita kalah 1978 dahulu. 12 tahun orang perintah, orang lain buat pembangunan, buat pejabat dan sebagainya, siap semua sekali, bagi kepada kita.
“Jadi tidak leloh (letih) kita. Kita boleh perkara yang dah siap,” kata Nik Amar.
Sebelum pilihan raya ke 14, Mohamad Amar berkata, Pas sengaja tidak bangunkan Kelantan kerana takut rakyatnya tidak sedia untuk menghadapi pembangunan itu. - mstar.

Bila orang2 PH diketepikan...
Shuaimi Ibrahim salah seorang anak buah Shahrizat lembu dan Eddy Casmady adalah Briged Pemuda UMNO... Kenapa barua UMNO ini diserap masuk dalam PH?
Kenapa tidak memilih orang PH sendiri yang mengiringi DSAI? Bukankah kebanyakan orang reformasi berlambak lagi yang boleh saport DSAI...
Jenis puak2 anjing UMNO ni tak boleh dibela nanti gigit tuan balik, tengok saja keadaan mereka semasa dengan UMNO.
UMNO tumbang saja mereka terus lompat kerana UMNO dah tak boleh bagi makan..
Akhirnya penyokong tegar PH ditolak ketepi hanya kerana nak ambik anjing UMNO..
Tengoklah nanti pasti ada huru hara angkara anjing-anjing UMNO ni nanti... Kita tunggu dan lihat... Aku pun dah jadi malas dengan sandiwara politik zaman sekarang... Kali ni lu pikir lah sendiri...- f/bk
A less blunt tool for Lim Guan Eng?
Really, Mr Mukherjee?
In a column this news website published yesterday, Bloomberg’s Andy Mukherjee had this to say: “Malaysia’s new finance minister is taking a sledgehammer to 1MDB. A less blunt tool would do the job just as well, probably better.”
In his words, Mukherjee said, “Lim Guan Eng is busy telling the world about the shocking state of affairs at the scandal-ridden state fund. But that won’t sate the Malaysian public’s desire for justice. Investors, meanwhile, are uneasy about things getting out of hand. Already, foreigners have sold out of the nation’s stocks for 13 consecutive days.
“For Lim to declare in his first press conference that government debt has exceeded RM1 trillion because of a sly public bailout of 1MDB gets him full marks for honesty, but not for tact.”
So, what indeed is this less blunt tool? Mukherjee offers no clues.
We can only guess he means Malaysia’s finance minister should hold back on telling the public exactly what went wrong with 1Malaysia Development Bhd (1MDB) and the scale of the giant hole in the country’s books.
So, how much should Lim hold back? How much tact should Lim have?
Should Lim hold back long enough for foreign investors to take up positions that would minimise losses and maximise gains, and then let fly?
Oh, maybe foreign investors should have been briefed first ahead of Malaysians who actually pay the salary of the finance minister?
While we are on the subject, what exactly does Mukherjee mean by foreign investors?
Perhaps he should call a spade a spade and just say foreign funds? Let’s not hide behind the catch-all phrase of “foreign investor”. A real foreign investor is an active participant in the Malaysian economy who builds a factory for example and offers up new technology and jobs.
Foreign funds are just like anyone who punts (For punt, read: gamble, as in rolls dice in a casino) on the stock market. They are passive investors hoping to make money off the backs of other people.
There you have it. It’s out of the bag. Anyone, and foreign funds in particular, hate it when there is uncertainty. Why? Because it messes up their plans (and profits). And there is nothing wrong with that. It’s only natural.
But Mukherjee should perhaps not act as a messenger for these funds. The funds have already spoken for themselves by pulling their money out of Malaysia’s stock market.
Mukherjee also took exception to Lim’s press release issued on Tuesday. Lim had said that 1MDB was effectively insolvent, and that the existence of as much as US$2.5 billion of the fund’s overseas assets is in doubt.
But Mukherjee seemed particularly offended by Lim’s characterisation of Arul Kanda Kandasamy, the 1MDB president, as “utterly dishonest and untrustworthy.”
“The colourful language against Kanda is jarring in an official press release. Malaysia isn’t a banana republic, but a sovereign rated A3 by Moody’s Investors Service,” Mukherjee wrote.
Jarring language? Really? Malaysia is facing major problems and the thing a columnist with Bloomberg, one of the world’s most respected financial news services, picked on was Lim’s “jarring” language.
For that, we as Malaysians must apologise. We did not realise fund managers were timid things who cannot handle blunt language. Are they snowflakes? Or shrinking violets? Whatever.
We did not realise “foreign investors” do not like the truth.
Perhaps we should couch it in euphemisms and jargon, instead of making it easier to understand.
But you see this is precisely why a majority of Malaysians got fed up enough to vote in a rag-tag coalition led by a 92-year-old.
Many Malaysians got tired of the fancy bankers and the politicians in their pockets using fancy language that no one understands to sell us stuff we don’t need.
We don’t need to be a financial genius to see money has been stolen from public coffers and the government took up high-interest loans and backed useless bonds for projects that benefit no one but bankers and assorted geniuses and perhaps even ratings agencies.
By the way, Mister Mukherjee, the money that has been lost? That’s my money. Not just mine alone but it belongs to all of us Malaysians.
And we sure as hell want to know what happened. We don’t mind the language.
But sorry if this article offends you. - Leslie Lau,Malay Mail
KL-S'pore HSR scrapped...
Putrajaya's decision to scrap the Kuala Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail (HSR) project is final, Dr Mahathir Mohamad has declared.
At a press conference today, the prime minister also said he was informed that the penalty for withdrawing from the agreement is close to half a billion ringgit.
"This is a final decision, but it will take time because we have an agreement with Singapore.
"I am told it is almost RM500 million," he said but added that he would confirm the exact compensation figure at a later date.
According to Mahathir, the HSR is not beneficial, as it only shortens the travel distance between Malaysia and Singapore by one hour, but would cost Malaysians a large sum of money.
"We will make no money at all for this operation," he stressed.
Asked if the Singapore government was informed or whether he would meet his counterpart on this matter, Mahathir said: "I don't know."
However, he added that the government plans to scrap the project in "the least cost possible".
Mahathir had earlier told the Financial Times that the HSR was one of the country's "unnecessary projects," and belt-tightening measures were needed to avoid the country being declared bankrupt.
"We need to do away with some of the unnecessary projects, for example, the HSR project which is going to cost us RM110 billion, and will not earn us a single sen.
"That will be dropped," he was quoted as saying.
The HSR project was conceived as part of the previous BN administration's Economic Transformation Programme in 2010. The bilateral agreement with Singapore was inked six years later.
Two project delivery partners – the Malaysian Resources Corporation Bhd-Gamuda Bhd consortium and the Syarikat Pembinaan Yeoh Tiong Lay Sdn Bhd-TH Properties Sdn Bhd consortium – signed on to the project last month.
The project was aimed at cutting travel time between Kuala Lumpur and Singapore to just 90 minutes.
The Financial Times also quoted Mahathir as stating that his government would be renegotiating several "unequal treaties" with China, including the East Coast Rail Line (ECRL) project.
Like the HSR, the ECRL has been branded by critics as another of the previous Najib administration's non-viable, big-ticket projects.
ECRL involves an RM55 billion loan from a China-owned bank and the employment of a state firm as the main contractor. - mk
Malaysia perlu bayar RM500 juta kerana batalkan HSR
Almost any transport linkBetween point A point B will benefit the evonomically better off place. In this case it is Singapore- more malaysians will work in SporeMore multinationals will use Spore as their hub as it will have lower cost malaysian labour readily abailableHSR will not benefit Johore as the distance is too short to save any meaningly journey time- unless the HSR speed is as fast as a rocket. - Anonymous_3fe1
For goodness sake, go ahead and cancelled this two silly unprofitable projects, the KL-S'pore HSR and the ECRL as we are not in a financially ready. China and Singapore should understand this, if not hard luck. Our economic survival remains top priority. - Anonymous_4056
KTM should start an express train without stopping straight from KL to Singapore and vice versa twice a day. Provide comfortable seats with good food and it should only take 4 hours,Over time increase the speed to reduce the time to 3 hours.This service will become a financial success. - Anonymous 2465861491622056
