"Kerajaan Beta" adalah ungkapan yg lumrah digunakan dalam sistem raja berperlembagaan. Sama seperti "Her Majesty's Government' di UK
Sapa2 pun jadi kerajaan, YDP Agong atau Sultan akan sebut KERAJAAN BETA, biarpun PM tu dari PKR,DAP,BN,PAS.. cuma YB baru ni, geng ulamak dunia saja mengakui ini Kerajaan tebuk atap yang sah.. - f/bk
Kesana kesini kesana kesini.sekali dgn Nga Kor Ming pun kira sekali.Padanlah goyang 113 vs 109. At least kita tahu 109 tu memang solid berbanding 113 yang macam tali rapoh dan ada pengiraan kata 112-110 pasai timbalan speaker depa letak di blok kerajaan...
PN memang tak ada majoriti...
1) Kira-kira yg dibuat dalam Dewan Rakyat td menunjukkan PN cuma ada 2 majoriti
2) Tapi itu berdasarkan kedudukan kerusi sahaja apabila 1 kerusi di blok PN mengaku beliau tidak menyokong PN. Jadi, PN TINGGAL MAJORITI 1 KERUSI
3) Terdapat 3 MP tidak hadir sidang tadi. Mereka ialah DAP, PKR dan GPS.
4) Semua orang tahu DAP memang tidak akan menyokong PN. Tu dah tolak lagi 1 majoriti yg merupakan majoriti terakhir PN
5) Tinggal antara PKR dan GPS. Ini penentu. Jika PKR ini geng Kartel, maka tinggal GPS. Dan GPS akan ikut masuk PN. Jadi PN selamat.
6) Namun, jika PKR ini geng Kartel, mestilah beliau akan hadir sidang hari ini. Maka PKR ini diyakini bukan Kartel makan beliau tidak menyokong PN. Maka, PN tumbang.
7) GPS yang 1 kerusi itu secara automatik akan menyokong kerajaan baru. - Dr Ariff Kadir Al-Katami
Rampas Selangor,N9 dan Sabah mungkin pelengkap kegembiraan Melayu PN...
Alaa, 2 tahun lagi PRU15. Apa nak heran. Dalam 2 tahun tu mana2 pemerintah tak akan sempat nak buat apa pun untuk rakyat.
Kita izinkan Melayu PN ni gembira dulu. Kerajaan pun tak stabil ni. Pembersihan pengkhianat masih berjalan. Biarkan aje. Tapi percayalah, tak payah tunggu lama, hujung tahun ni aje kita akan nampak kesannya.
Melayu dijangka makin ramai menganggur dan terlibat jenayah mencuri untuk makan. Melayu juga terpaksa pajak barang kemas untuk beli beras, kicap, telur, susu. Tu belum ada GST lagi. Mahu atau tidak, kerajaan PN tiada pilihan selain mengenakan semula GST sebab PN tak de duit. Itu pun jika diluluskan parlimen ya. Jika bersidang pun takut, mcmana nak lulus GST? Tak lulus GST, mcmana PN nak bayar gaji menteri PN?
Tu belum lagi duit nak bayar hutang 1MDB yg berbilion tu. GLC pula dijangka gagal membantu kerajaan dari segi kewangan sebab ketua2 GLC lantikan politik mana nak reti benda2 korporat ni. Kalau mereka reti, tak de nya nak cari makan dalam politik ni.
Kita enjoy aje tgk mcmana pepuak Melayu yg sokong PN ni nak hidup. Tak lama. Bermula hujung 2020 ni berdasarkan perangkaan sekarang. Time tu kita tengok sendiri Melayu benci kat PN, MN, PAS dan UMNO mcm Melayu benci kat BN masa PRU14 dulu. Perut bila dah lapar, mung Melayu kaa, mung Islam kaa dah tak jalan dah. Tgk org curi tabung masjid aje dah laa. Pencuri Melayu Islam jugak yg curi tu sebab perut dah lapar. - Dr Ariff Kadir Al-Katami
out of Muhyiddin’s fear...
If Pakatan Harapan Plus – PKR, Amanah, DAP, Warisan and Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s faction of Bersatu – can hold together without being cracked, Muhyiddin Yassin will likely have to make one of the two following choices:
- First, to go to the polls to seek a fresh mandate which will be detrimental to Muhyiddin and Azmin Ali but to the delight of Umno;
- Second, resign and allow the king to appoint a new government especially if he fails to pass Budget 2021;
I don’t rule out other possibilities such as Muhyiddin repressing parliamentary democracy altogether. But as long as Harapan Plus is holding on tightly, Muhyiddin is stuck and has no room to manoeuvre.
Delaying Parliament sitting from March 9 to May 18 was meant to give him time to “buy” enough MPs to form a comfortable majority. That objective has clearly failed. The Muhyiddin government is now afraid of calling Parliament.
First, Dewan Rakyat’s secretary Riduan Rahmat’s removal and demotion five days before the May 18 crucial sitting is a sign of panic on the part of the government. Riduan, the most senior Parliamentary Service personnel who started his service with Parliament in 1989, was replaced with a relatively junior civil servant from the Prime Minister’s Department.
Second, the government dares not even face any vote in Parliament, not even procedural votes. In the April 17 letter to MPs and the original plan indicated to party leaders, there were supposed to be some procedural votes, such as suspension of the standing order and voting to move the debate of royal address to July.
A procedural vote is of technical nature which supposedly has no political consequences. But why is the government even fearful of such votes? The answer is simple: the government’s numbers are shaky and uncertain.
Perikatan Nasional has a maximum of 113 seats or less. As procedural votes are not of consequence, if any of Muhyiddin’s allies want to cause trouble, it is the perfect time to defeat a vote without the fall of the government.
Third, in fact, while the government can bully the Parliament speaker to not allow the official no-confidence motion to be on the agenda, each and every vote in Parliament is a risk that could demonstrate that the government has no majority.
Which is why I said as long as Harapan Plus is intact, Muhyiddin will continue to fear Parliament whether it is July or September. But the government will still have to present Budget 2021 at some point otherwise there is no money to spend and everything grinds to a halt.
If Muhyiddin still can’t command a comfortable majority in the next two months, the presentation of the 12th Malaysia Plan is likely to be shelved too. The longer he waits the more likely Umno will suffocate Muhyiddin with more pressure.
To give a little more context, essentially, British Westminster-style parliaments have three major functions.
First, to form the government. Parliament is where the majority of a government is formed and tested. It is not that minority government cannot rule. But when the government has no majority, it will have to negotiate each piece of legislation with the opposition. Muhyiddin is still thinking of buying MPs from the opposition and is not prepared to go to Parliament to negotiate his ways as he is afraid that he will lose the majority on the Parliament floor at the first instance.
Second, to make laws and approve spending. So much is needed to be done for the post-Covid-19 new normal. Laws needed to be changed, spending needs to be debated and approved. This function of Parliament has also been muzzled.
Third, to check and balance. Government backbenchers and opposition members are meant to hold the executive accountable through committee inquiries and parliamentary questions. The government is not even allowing written questions.
The Parliament has made major gains in less than two years under Harapan. If Harapan made it back to power, Parliament needs to be further strengthened so that it will never be decapitated in whatever circumstances.
Parliament under Harapan has formed a bipartisan committee to scrutinise appointments. In the future, most GLC appointments can be vetted by the bipartisan committee so that no change of government could affect the officeholders during the contractual period. But, of course, if the opposition such as Umno is not of democratic spirit, such reform is hard to execute.
During Harapan’s time, GLCs or boards appointed mostly professionals and if there were politicians, they were appointed based on credentials and professional experiences.
In the future, the Parliament’s committee chairs should be the coveted posts for senior backbenchers who do not join the frontbench cabinet. This would help strengthen the parliamentary system of checks and balances while enriching the nation as a whole. A lot more could be done when Harapan returns to office. - Liew Chin Tong
