Dr.M was supportive of the Sheraton move,coz he did not want Anwar to become PM,idea that was sold to him by Azmin but in the end Din was the one who pulled the carpet under him!!!.. - dr.ts
Ahli Parlimen Gua Musang Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah mengambil pendirian tidak akan mengambil bahagian dalam perbahasan Bajet dan pengundian pada 26 November nanti. Pendirian itu kerana beliau menurut hati nuraninya mempersoalkan keabsahan Muhyiddin Yassin sebagai perdana menteri.
Bagi Tengku Razaleigh kesahihan Muhyiddin diragui jadi Bajet dibentang kerajaanya juga meragukan. Atas prinsip itu Tengku Razaleigh tidak akan hadir ke parlimen.
Pendirian Tengku Razaleigh itu ditafsirkan dengan berbagai makna kononnya Muhyiddin akan berhadapan dengan masalah untuk meluluskan Bajet 2021. - mso
Kalu Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah dah cakap dia tak mau masuk campur.UMNO hilang satu sokongan. Keabsahan seseorang PM tu sesuatu urusan yg patut didahukukan.Gua amat berharap ramai lagi MP2 UMNO yg memiliki conscience untuk menolak belanjawan yg akan merugikan rakyat dalam jamgka panjang.Pokoknya kuranglah 1 undi bajet 2021 Din.Akibatnya PN hilang sokongan lagi dan Din bakal bungkus!... - dr.ts
Apa kata suruh dia langgah 3 tin Carlsberg dan tengok dia melelong dak?Carlsberg,Heineken, Guinness dan Tiger beer yg kandungan alkahol kuran 7%.Kes beer yang tak memabukkan ni lebih kurang macam kes RUU355 lah. Bila dengaq saja kata ketua pak lebai nak bentang RUU355 terus naik stim penyokong. Rupa2nya beer yang kurang dari 7% alcohol tidak dikategorikan sebagai minuman keras di tanah Melayu Isle, jadi tak ada beza pun dengan dulu. Memang dari dulu 7Eleven dan mini mart hanya jual beer dan bukan wine... - dr.ts
Hanya Cina buta saja sokong UMNO...
Kajian suku tahunan oleh Emir Research pada Ogos lalu mendapati bahawa Muhyiddin Yassin menikmati sokongan dua pertiga kaum Melayu sebagai perdana menteri, tetapi hanya 7 peratus orang Melayu yang menyokong partinya, Bersatu.
Tinjauan itu membabitkan 2,096 responden yang dipilih melalui teknik pensampelan pelbagai peringkat dan kaji selidik secara berdepan, yang mewakili semua 222 kawasan parlimen. Timbalan Ketua Menteri Pulau Pinang, P Ramasamy, membidas penemuan kajian Emir Research yang mendakwa majoriti responden berbangsa Cina menyokong Umno.
Dia mempersoalkan metodologi yang menyaksikan kesimpulan dibuat bahawa Umno adalah parti paling popular di kalangan kaum Cina Malaysia sementara hanya 17 peratus daripada mereka nya menyokong DAP.
Menurut Ramasamy penemuan bahawa Umno mendapat sokongan paling banyak di kalangan responden Cina dengan 25 peratus, diikuti oleh DAP pada 17 peratus dan MCA pada 12 peratus adalah luar biasa.
"Hasil tinjauan ke atas 2,000 responden itu benar2 pelik dan tidak dapat dibayangkan," katanya, sambil menambah bahawa ini menimbulkan pertanyaan mengenai cara penyelidikan dijalankan, motif di belakangnya dan siapa sebenarnya responden berkenaan.
"Apa yang dilakukan Umno sejak kebelakangan ini sehingga begitu disayangi oleh kaum Cina dan apa yang telah dilakukan DAP sehingga ditolak oleh kaum Cina?" soal Ramasamy.
"Umno masih musuh nombor satu DAP dan pada pilihan raya umum terakhir pada tahun 2018, DAP dan parti-parti sekutunya berhempas-pulas mengalahkan Umno dan BN. "Sebilangan besar kaum Cina menyokong DAP."
Katanya, meskipun sokongan kaum Cina terhadap DAP mungkin tidak sama seperti sebelum ini, namun dia percaya bahawa jika diberi pilihan antara Umno bersama BN dan DAP bersama Pakatan Harapan, dia yakin pengundi bukan Melayu untuk terus menyokong DAP. - mk
Kalu gitu bolehlah adakan PRU15 esok!!!
The Chinese and UMNO...
News portal FMT reported that Emir Research said via a statement that its survey findings "indicate that the Chinese community support for Umno is as high as its support for DAP, and not higher than as previously reported". Hence, according to Emir Research, it was not correct to conclude from its survey that support for Umno was higher than DAP among the Chinese. The think tank was responding to reports that said its survey of over 2,000 respondents put support for Umno among the Chinese community at 25% compared to 17% for DAP.
Emir Research went on to explain that given the margin of error, it was inaccurate to conclude that Umno enjoyed more Chinese support than DAP and "only when we observe a percentage difference of at least 10% we can conclude that such a large difference cannot be by chance." Therefore, according to Emir Research, "the more scientifically accurate way to interpret the observed results is that support for Umno is as high as that for DAP among the Chinese respondents".
In a nutshell, what Emir Research was saying is, Chinese support for Umno and DAP is "equal". Am I right to conclude this way? Anyway, the Emir Research "explanation" has not been "well accepted" by many. I say this not based on any detailed study or survey but on casual conversations with my circle of friends, especially my Chinese friends.
All brushed off the findings no matter what the clarification. A good number laughed it off and some reminded me that Emir Research is linked to Bersatu and is run by Datuk Rais Hussin "who is a Bersatu supreme council member and was appointed chairman of the Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation by the prime minister who is also Bersatu president". Thus, they bluntly opined that the survey "is biased".
While Rais' appointment as MDEC chairman is true, I corrected my friends that he is no more Bersatu supreme council member. He remains in the party as an ordinary member, though. Anyway, I am not about to agree with the findings of the survey. Neither will I dispute it. Political surveys and researches, as I understand, are based on a clear methodology with specific procedures used to identify, select, process and analyze information. Projections and predictions are made based on information obtained from focus groups and their response to a questionnaire. In short, the basis for their findings is always samples of target groups.
As far as the Emir Research survey is concerned, I am not privy to what methodology was used. Nor do I know who the target groups were. There were some 2,000 respondents. That we know. And as pointed out by readers giving their views in the comments section of a news portal, they suspect the respondents could be pro-MCA folks, if not party members themselves. Well, your guess is as good as mine!
Going by the clarification made by Emir Research, their findings showed the Chinese support for Umno is as high as their support for DAP. This I suppose was what the 2,000 survey respondents told the good people of Emir Research conducting the survey. Putting aside the survey participants (presumably Chinese), the big question to ask is do Chinese in general love Umno more than DAP? Or love both all the same? Equally?
To state the obvious, only the Chinese can answer that. I can't as I am not Chinese. However, I can list out briefly what the Chinese see in Umno. At least what I think they have seen and are seeing now. Actions and gestures of certain Umno leaders have hurt the feelings of the Chinese, in particular with regards to their fond reference to "pendatang".
The same leaders said openly support of the Chinese (and non-Malays for that matter) was not needed for the party to win elections. But that was the Umno before the GE14 defeat. Present day Umno – there are still among their midst whose views of Chinese schools are well known. No elaboration needed.
Umno is in Muafakat Nasional with PAS to unify the "ummah". Needless to say, it's an alliance which gives top priority to Malays/Muslims. "Ummah" is Arabic for "community". But the word has become synonymous with the Islamic community. In Malaysia, it has always been referred to as the Malay/Muslim community.
Umno is not in Perikatan Nasional but many of its leaders are in the PN government (with PAS) which is seen as a Malay-Muslim administration. Not that this is not a good thing, but many actions taken thus far have made many a Chinese sit up and take stock of what's in store and what they "fear" is to come. Again I won't go into the specifics..
Top leaders in Umno now seem to be not in the same page with regards to the role and status of Muafakat Nasional and Perikatan Nasional. Some young leaders are now pushing for what is labeled a "progressive caucus" within Umno "to bring a new narrative that is more friendly towards the people". By "people", I take it to mean all Malaysians regardless of race and religion.
But a top Umno leader is suggesting the formation of a grand coalition. He named Malay and bumiputra parties to be in this grand coalition. To be fair to the leader, he did say non-Malay non-Muslim political parties could be included "as long as they are are opposed to Pakatan Harapan". Never mind the politics. Ponder what the proposal would bring to the community and to the country.
The list can get longer but enough said for now. Nevertheless, the things listed should be enough to answer (even for a little bit) whether the Chinese support Umno, the DAP or any other party for that matter.
I'll end with this quote from an Umno Youth leader taken from an article by MalaysiaKini columnist S. Thayaparan: "At the moment, Umno is perceived to be so conservative, an Islamist party, a party that propagates propaganda. This is what is clouding the party now. but Umno is not like that." It's up to you my Chinese friends to take that statement in total, partially or with a pinch of salt. - Mohsin Abdullah
