Editor veteran Datuk A Kadir Jasin hari ini berkata adalah menjadi pengetahuan umum beberapa sultan “berkempen” menghalang Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad kembali ke arena politik.
Beliau mengulas ucapan Timbalan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail di Kedutaan Malaysia di Jakarta, Indonesia semalam, mengatakan Agong ada menawarkan jawatan perdana menteri kepadanya selepas Pakatan Harapan menang pilihan raya umum 9 Mei lalu.
“Pengesahan dan ulang sebut ini penting kerana rakyat, khususnya pengundi yang memilih PH, berhak mengetahui tindak balas Agong terhadap keputusan mereka memilih PH,” kata Kadir di blognya.
Menurut Kadir, Wan Azizah berkata dia ditawarkan jawatan itu kerana PH menang pilihan raya dengan lambang PKR dan dia adalah presiden parti.
Editor veteran berkata ketika itu semua orang tahu calon perdana menteri PH adalah Dr Mahathir, kerana persetujuan parti-parti komponen itu dihebahkan kepada umum.
“Jadi rakyat tahu dan satu dunia juga tahu calon perdana menteri ialah Dr Mahathir dan bukan orang lain,” katanya.
Beliau seterusnya menyorot perhatian pembacanya kepada peristiwa Istana Kelantan menarik balik gelaran Dr Mahathir pada 6 Februari lepas, 3 bulan sebelum PRU14.
“Penarikan balik darjah tertinggi Kelantan itu dilihat sebagai penolakan terhadap Dr Mahathir oleh Istana Kelantan.
“Adalah menjadi pengetahuan umum bahawa beberapa orang sultan secara tersurat dan tersirat ‘berkempen’ menghalang kepulangan Dr Mahathir ke arena politik tanah air,” katanya.
Beliau berkata ucapan oleh Wan Azizah itu mengesahkan tekaan orang ramai. - fmt
Several rulers sought to prevent Dr M's return
Kiamat bagi penerima dana SRC...
Akan berlaku PRK “Pilihanraya Kecil” di kebanyakan kerusi DUN dan Parlimen bagi Kelantan, Terengganu malah di seluruh Negara apabila kerajaan memulakan siasatan keatas 1MDB dan SRC.
Berikut adalah AMARAN keras dari Datuk Bahri Mohd Zin, Mantan pengarah operasi siasatan khas Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia,
“kamu ada kuasa, aku ada Allah insyallah termakbul sudah berlaku peralihan kuasa kerajaan Malaysia kini, inilah doa saya pada sepertiga malam selama ini.”
"Lobang cacing tak perlu ku intai lagi dan insyallah kita akan menonton kes-kes yang tak pernah terlintas di benak kita selama ni,"
Ucapan ini di buat sebaik sahaja Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad mengangkat sumpah sebagai Perdana Menteri Malaysia yg ke 7.
Sebaik menjalankan tugas di hari pertama sebagai Perdana Menteri Malaysia Pakatan Harapan, Tun Dr Mahathir telah menekankan bahawa Peguam Negara, Tan Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali dan bekas Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar, mungkin akan disiasat berkaitan pembabitan dalam kes syarikat pelaburan 1 Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) dan SPRM akan dikaji semula.
Tegas beliau, tindakan akan diambil berdasarkan undang-undang negara atas nasihat peguam dan pentadbiran negara.
Dengan kenyatan ini pasti bekas perdana Menteri Najib Razak pemimpin2 Umno Barisan Nasional termasok bekas pemimpin kanan PAS Nasaruddin Md Isa dan 17 orang yang maklumatnya telah di bocorkan oleh siasatan SPRM, penerima dana yang berasal dari Kumpulan Wang Amanah Persaraan (KWAP) akan turut terheret sama.

Why Anwar must win in Port Dickson...
I was delighted to be asked to speak in Lukut last night in support of Anwar Ibrahim. Unfortunately, there were just too many VVIPs speakers which left no time for a free agent like me. Still, this is what I would have said, in case you want to know.
Ladies and gentlemen,
The last time I shared the same platform as Anwar Ibrahim during a political campaign was eight years ago, in Hulu Selangor.
There, I was the candidate for the parliamentary by-election and Anwar was campaigning for me. He did me the honour of promoting me as the candidate although I was just a rookie in PKR. I am grateful for that. Unfortunately, I lost by 1,750 votes to the combined forces of Najib Razak and Dr Mahathir Mohamad. In those days, it was okay for cash to be king, and Felda voters gave everything to Najib in appreciation for his millions.
I am here to lend support to Anwar. This election is a continuation of the people’s victory on May 9. We need to win this one so that there will be continuation of the reformasi movement in the country. We need to get rid of corrupt leaders, for sure, and this process has started. But corruption and abuse of power are not the only threat to our country. Equally dangerous is the racist and hate politics that have been adopted by PAS and Umno in their political struggle.
PAS uses religion to hide its racist policies. This is the party whose candidate in Port Dickson declares that Liew Chin Tong from DAP should not have been appointed deputy defence minister because he is not “qualified” – a disguised attack because he is not a Malay and a Muslim. This is the party whose president believes that only Muslims should be top leaders of this country. In Indonesia, such a racist party and its candidate would not be allowed to contest in an election. The candidate would be disqualified by the Election Commission (EC) immediately. Unfortunately, here the EC is powerless to do the same.
PAS is a threat to the security and stability of the country, yet we allow it to contest in an election. The Registrar of Societies should have deregistered PAS years ago because it misrepresented itself to the people, saying it is synonymous with Islam. Its leaders manage to hoodwink the people into thinking that Islam and their politics are the same. Their leaders openly reject a multicultural Malaysia, they reject democracy, they reject Muslims who do not look like them, and of course they reject non-Muslims too. In these circumstances, I appeal to the voters in Port Dickson to make sure PAS is defeated
In addition, Anwar will be a different kind of prime minister. I believe he will take better care of the “small people”, based on his fight against poverty and for the downtrodden in his younger days. Anwar menang, Port Dickson dan Malaysia senang. That’s why I urge Port Dickson voters to come out and vote for Anwar: send the message that our work was not finished on May 9, and what this country needs to move forward is a concerted effort from everyone.
I am gratified to note that DAP leaders, in particular Gobind Singh, have come out strongly in support of Anwar as the next prime minister, although Mat Sabu and Amanah are keeping quiet on this issue. Maybe they do not want to upset the current prime minister in case their position in the Cabinet is affected. Fully understandable, but unacceptable nonetheless.
Next week, Anwar will be sworn in by the speaker as a member of Parliament. To many Anwar supporters in the country, this will be a day to rejoice. But I want to caution them: becoming a Pakatan Harapan backbencher would be the start of misery for Anwar.
Anwar needs to be made deputy prime minister immediately, not left to languish in Parliament as another ordinary MP. The world would look askance at Malaysia having someone touted as the future prime minister sitting on the back bench. What will he do and how long will he sit there before he becomes prime minister?
Has there ever been a prime minister who was not a deputy first? No. If we are serious and sincere about Anwar becoming the prime minister, then we need to have him in place as deputy so that he can start learning to work with the prime minister again. Given their history, it will not be easy for either, but they have to start now. The country needs certainty and no more infighting between factions. The people want the succession issue resolved. They want the machinery of government moving in top gear.
If we are sincere about Anwar becoming prime minister, we need to ensure that he has the respect and acceptance of all Cabinet members, MPs and the world. He will not get that just by being proclaimed as the prime minister-in-waiting. Anwar needs the deputy prime minister’s position before he can get the cooperation and respect of Cabinet members.
What will he do as a member of Parliament? He has no position in Parliament right now. He can ask questions about bills and policies, and the ministers will give a proper answer if they know he is really the next prime minister. If Anwar wants to develop Port Dickson as a tourist attraction, or seeks to help Kelantan in its perennial flood problems, what does he do? He appeals to the minister concerned who will probably refer the matter to the some eminent person or the prime minister. Then what? His life will be miserable because he becomes a post box.
No one can govern by “moral authority”. No one becomes prime minister by the grace of his friends, and a few in the Cabinet are not even friends of Anwar. He becomes prime minister only because he has enough support in Parliament. If he has, then why not make him a deputy now ? If he does not have the numbers, then spare him the misery of calling him “prime minister-in-waiting”. Keep that description away until the PH leadership is ready to name him as prime minister.
My message to Port Dickson voters is simple. You must vote for Anwar because we need a clear succession plan. Our country has too many problems to be resolved, and we cannot afford anymore leadership infighting. We must not allow a PAS-Umno tie-up which would be disastrous for the country. For that, we need Anwar as our deputy prime minister next week. That way, he can immediately strengthen the current Cabinet, and he can start doing proper work to prepare him to be prime minister. If we are serious about him becoming the prime minister, this is what we must do. - Zaid Ibrahim,fmt
