Noh Omar - BN will win 36 seats in Selangor...

ceramah selamatkan selangor, klang, noh omarSelangor Umno deputy chief Noh Omar is confident that BN will recapture the state in the next general election by winning 36 out of 56 seats, a seat short of a two-thirds majority in the state assembly.

In an interview with Chinese dailies reported yesterday in
Nanyang Siang Pau, the agriculture and agro-based industry minister expects Umno to win over 30 seats from the 35 it will contest, MCA to capture five out of 14, MIC and Gerakan to grab one each out of three and four seats to be contested respectively.

Selangor BN's target in the 13th general election, said Noh, is to win back Selangor with a simple majority, adding that a two-thirds majority would be a "bonus".

Noh said response to BN’s activities shortly after the last general election was lukewarm, but claims the situation has changed under the leadership of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak, who is also Umno and BN state chief.

This, he said, was evident from BN having to hire more buses to ferry people to their events - the the past five buses would go out and come back empty, but today five would not be enough.

He also boasted that if they prepare 10,000 chairs for their events more than  20,000 people would show up, taking this as a sign that Selangor residents were interested in BN otherwise they would not come.

Asked whether such a trend would translate into votes, Noh replied, "Hopefully."

Parliamentary seat haul

At the parliamentary level, Noh was also confident that BN can grab 12 out of 22 Selangor parliamentary seats.

He predicts Umno can win seven out of 10 contested, MCA can capture three out of seven while MIC can win at least two out of four.

"It seems that MCA can retain Pandan," he added.

Meanwhile, he left the question of his own candidacy to Najib's decision.

"My promise is to try my best help Umno win, but who will be the menteri besar is not my job (to ask)," he said.

Five states ‘in danger’ for BN in GE, says Khir Toyo

BN yakin menang 36 DUN Selangor...

NONETimbalan Pengerusi BN Selangor Datuk Seri Noh Omar yakin BN akan berjaya merampas kembali negeri itu dalam pilihan rayan umum akan datang.

Katanya, mereka yakin akan menang di 36 daripada 56 kerusi yang dipertandingkan, hanya kurang satu kerusi untuk membentuk majoriti dua pertiga dalam Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN), lapor Nanyang Siang Pau.

Dalam wawancara eksklusif itu juga, Noh meramalkan Umno akan menang 30 daripada 35 kerusi yang ditandingi, MCA mampu mendapat lima daripada 14 kerusi sementara GERAKAN dan MIC masih-masing mendapat satu kerusi.

Noh berkata, mereka memang mahu merampas Selangor dengan majoriti mudah tetapi jika berjaya mendapat majoriti dua pertiga, ia dikira "bonus".

Katanya, walaupun mendapat sokongan kurang memberangsangkan selepas kalah dalam pilihan raya umum 2008, situasi kini berubah bawah kepimpinan Datuk Seri Najib Razak secara langsung.

Anonymous - #28963511 Of course, they're upbeat about it. They've planted and moved so many phantom voters to selangor. so they're smug about it now

Fair Play - At best, Noh Omar is counting the chickens before they are hatched.

Nicholas Philip  - They need to provide bus to bring ppl for their events shows how desperate have BN become. 

rayfire - Good, have the confidence and spend more and more money in Selangor, heck that the whole bag of money and dump it from house to house! You can spend all you want! You will not earn our nambikkai or tembikai for that matter! 

malaysian2020 - dont be so humble Mr noh omar,just say BN can will all the 57 seat it contested...opps sorry all the 56 seats

anon-23 - Seriously, if umno wins in selangor, the jewel state of the country is finished. It will be governed by a bunch of nincompoops whose priority would be to enrich themselves. All the hardwork and money saved by Pakatan will but come to nought. That bn might win remains a possibility with the help of the EC and its people who will rig the polls.

From Musa Hitam to Ku Li to Anwar,Mahathir forced them out one by one...

Let BN politicians be reminded that they should stop blaming the rakyat if they find themselves down the slippery slide of popularity.

They should also stop blaming their diminishing chances of landslide victories in the coming general elections on the demographics. Likewise, they should also stop blaming their coalition counterparts for failures and for losing territories to the Opposition coalition.

BN's precarious sitz-im-laben has nothing to do with race and religion either. And the mother of all their contentions - that Anwar Ibrahim, is the primary cause of their loosening ground is also not the problem.

 It was Dr M who killed Umno, not Anwar

The core cancer that is eating into BN today is the fact that they were deprived of true leadership by their chief architect Tun Dr Mahathir. Remember, he sacked not one potential successor but far too many.

BN must not forget that the Tun not only flushed out potential talents but also did massive surgeries on UMNO and subsequently setting in irreversible serious, secondary infections.

Let us remember the pages of history. The nation had Musa Hitam, a man who made it into the TIME's pages as an Asian promise. Then came Anwar Ibrahim who was also sacked from BN. Remember the potential stars of Semangat 47? All were thrown out into the cold and so also went Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah right up to this day.

Then BN pushed Pak Lah to the frontier only to see BN itself have him replaced by Datuk Seri Najib. But even before Najib could warm his high chair, the Altantuya saga brought the roof caving in for BN.

Today, can anyone be chided for telling and perceiving that there are no charismatic leaders within the BN fold?

We need a personality, a voice, a beacon of hope

The populace needs a personality. The voters need a voice. The citizens need a beacon of admiration and hope.

Do we have one single personality within BN who can stand tall and command the respect, support and undivided loyalty - someone whom the rakyat can agree hands-down as the person who can put the country on track?

Do we have one single voice within BN who can speak in the best interest of all Malaysians, the nation and its Rulers without marginalising anyone - rich or poor; Malays, Chinese, Indian, Sabahan or Sarawakian; Muslim or non-Muslim?

Do we have one single beacon of admiration and hope within BN who can stand tall and untainted with allegations and corruption or living a lifestyle that is exemplary for and proudly recognized by all Malaysians?

Like it or not, the people accept Anwar as a leader

If you look at the Opposition coalition, they are not free of allegations. But what is very clear is that they are able to put aside their differences in political ideologies and visions of their future and rise to push for the people's interest first.

The Opposition camp has been able to quickly identify its leader and put their weight behind him despite all the allegations about this man's personal lifestyle preferences.

And whether we like it or not, whether Tun Dr Mahathir likes it or not, Anwar Ibrahim is being recognised as a leader not only by the coalition camp but also by all their respective supporters and members.

In fact, much as BN may denounce, even the corporate corridors, individuals from the global business arena, leaders in other countries, and maverick politicians are in alignment with the very positioning of Anwar ibrahim by the Pakatan Rakyat forces.

Is there anyone in BN who can do what DSAI has achieved, namely to reign in the opposition parties and have them anoint him as their forefront leader?

 Internal cancer

So BN is not fighting a political war today. It is actually suffering from a depletion of its marrow, i.e. lack of leadership.

And who do we blame for BN going bankrupt in leadership after fifty years of getting full support from the rakyat? Blame the rakyat still? Or blame the Opposition? Or find a scapegoat in the person of Anwar Ibrahim?

The rakyat gave BN every opportunity every five years, seasons in seasons out, to lead them and the nation. But today BN is fighting for its life to win with a landslide victory of bygone eras.- Malaysia Chronicle

Old foe Anwar giving Mahathir a run for his money in GE-13

Baru Mahathir sedaq,Umno kekurangan cerdik pandai Melayu...

Mantan Perdana Menteri Mahathir Mohamad akhirnya mendedahkan. Pimpinan tinggi Umno sengaja menahan golongan bijak pandai melayu sebagai rancangan untuk terus berkuasa antara sesama mereka, dan mengakibatkan keadaan sekarang bila parti kekurangan bakat baru terutama di peringkat tertinggi.

“ Sejak berdekad yang lalu, Umno tidak membenarkan mereka yang bijak menganggotai parti. Sebab itu ramai doktor masuk PAS. Ini membuatkan susah untuk Umno mendapat calun sesuai untuk menjamin kemenangan dalam pilihanraya.” Mahathir memberitahu Bernama rabu lepas.

Siapa patut dipersalahkan

Tapi Mahathir ialah bekas PM dan presiden Umno selama 22 tahun,dari 1981 hingga 2003, maka bertanggungjawab bagi sebahagian besar polisi yang membentuk Umno sehingga kini. Samada kita suka atau tidak, Umno mempunyai reputasi buruk berdasarkan perkauman dan agama untuk memenangi kaum etnik terbesar dinegara ini-orang Melayu.

PM Najib Razak, khasnya, di cerca sebagai “jaguh talam dua muka” kerana menyokong tumbuhnya kumpulan NGO extremis hak ultra Melayu seperti Perkasa dan anti Kristian seperti Jati, sambil pada masa yang sama, menyebut2 polisi kesederhanaan kepada masyarakat antarabangsa.

Mahathir juga menggesa pemimpin Umno supaya meninggalkamm amalan hanya memilih ketua bahagian untuk bertanding. Komen ini timbul ketika Najib mula pusingan terkahir dalam memilih calun2 boleh menang untuk pilihanraya umum 13 yang dijangka tahun ini.

“Kita harus terima calun yang baik, samada mereka ahli Umno atau tidak.Kita mahu orang yang layak dan berbakat, kemudian baru kita boleh membentuk kerajaan yang berupaya,” kata Mahathir.

Perselisihan dalaman

Pemimpin pembangkang tidak terkejut dengan komen Mahathir, dan merasa kan beliau cuba mempengaruhi keputusan Najib berkenaan calon2 , daripada mengubah Umno.

“Umno sedang mengalami perselisihan dalaman paling teruk.Dalam semua negeri yang mereka perintah, sekurang kurangnya ada 2 kumpulan yang berlumba lumba untuk kuasa. Semua mahu calun mereka dipilih.

Dalam politk, jika tiada kerusi samada di Parlimen atau Dewan Undangan Negeri, maka ibarat harimau tak bertaring. Mahathir ialah salah seorang dari panglima perang.Najib juga.Mereka ada kem mereka dan akan cuba memberi kan penyokong mereka sebahagian dari kerusi tersebut.- Malaysia Chronicle

Dalam 12 minggu Najib dan Mahyuddin belanja RM 609 juta ronda2 rasmi seluruh Malaysia...

Kerajaan telah membelanjakan RM608.68 juta sepanjang tempoh 12 minggu untuk kos lawatan rasmi Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak dan Timbalannya, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Menurut satu jawapan bertulis di Dewan Rakyat, "peruntukan segera" yang diluluskan dari Januari hingga 15 Mac telah dibelanjakan semasa lawatan mereka ke 14 negeri, dengan kos lawatan ke Perak merupakan yang tertinggi sebanyak RM220.38 juta.

MP PAS Jerai, Mohd Firdaus Jaafar, pada 27 Mac, telah meminta Jabatan Perdana Menteri untuk menyenaraikan semua peruntukan yang diluluskan serta-merta untuk lawatan rasmi perdana menteri negeri-negeri tersebut.-malaysiakini

PM, DPM visits consume RM609mil over 12 weeks...

najib puchong 180312The government had dispensed RM608.68 million over a period of 12 weeks to meet the expenses of Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin's official nationwide visits.

According to a parliamentary written reply, the "urgent allocation" approved from January to March 15 was disbursed during their 14-state visit, with Perak recording the highest at RM220.38 million.

Jerai PAS MP Mohd Firdaus Jaafar, on March 27, had asked the Prime Minister's Department to list to all the immediately allocations approved for the prime minister's official tour of the states.

Allocations for Johor ranked second, with RM201.40 million doled out for 24 projects, while the Federal Territories came in third with RM63.25 million dispensed for nine projects.

Najib’s recent marathon forays to Perak and Selangor focussed on opposition-held areas, distributing goodies and promises to boost BN’s popularity, had fuelled speculation that polls might be announced soon.

BN suffered its worst electoral defeat in 2008 under former prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, when the opposition won 82 parliamentary seats and gained control of Kelantan, Kedah and Penang, as well as Perak and Selangor.

The ruling coalition, however, wrested away Perak in February 2009 - after three Pakatan Rakyat assemblypersons defected, mere days after Najib took over as state Umno chief, plunging the state into political chaos which lasted several months.

Political pundits opined that the 13th general election will pose a critical challenge to the first-time premier to reverse inroads made by the opposition in Parliament and to win much needed votes in Perak and Selangor, a fate analysts believe, still hangs by a thread.

PAS confirms plan to replace Anwar as Opposition Leader...

Pakatan Rakyat is making preparations to replace parliamentary Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim (pic), according to PAS secretary general Mustafa Ali.

However, Mustafa said the candidate they have in mind will have to take over after the coming polls, and he is none other than prime minister Najib Razak.

“After the 13th general election, we would like to replace Anwar Ibrahim with Najib Razak or Muhyiddin Yasin," quipped the veteran PAS leader, responding to questions by reporters on the calls by pro-Barisan Nasional leaders to impeach Anwar based on allegations of sexual misconduct.

The impeachment process was announced yesterday by Anwar's former friend-turned-nemesis-turned-senator S.Nallakaruppan, and UMNO lawyer Shafee Abdullah.

However, the duo was given a lesson on parliamentary procedures by rights lawyer and PKR vice president N Surendran, who said their action smacked of "breathtaking ignorance of impeachment and parliamentary procedure in Malaysia and the Commonwealth".

Surendran pointed out the absence of any provision or precedent for impeachment in the Malaysian parliament.

"In England, the procedure was last used over two hundred years ago in Lord Melville's case and is now obsolete. The rationale of the impeachment remedy was to hold Ministers and the Executive accountable in the administration of the country.

"To suggest that it be used against the Opposition leader shows a gross misunderstanding  of the impeachment process. With the evolution of the motion of no confidence, select committees and close parliamentary scrutiny and questioning, the old impeachment mechanism has become archaic," said Surendran in a statement to Harakahdaily.

What impeachment? Najib is just afraid of rational debate with Anwar

 PAS - Kita memang cadang nak tukar Ketua Pembangkang...

Menjawab soalan sama ada Pakatan Rakyat (PR) bersedia menukar Ketua Pembangkang, Setiausaha Agung PAS, Datuk Mustafa Ali (gambar) berkata, ya.

“Selepas pilihan raya ke-13, kita memang nak Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim digantikan oleh Datuk Seri Najib atau Tan Sri Muhyiddin sebagai Ketua Pembangkang,” kata beliau kepada Harakahdaily.

Mustafa berkata petang tadi, beliau ditanya wartawan daripada media perdana mengenai tindakan seterusnya yang akan dilakukan Pakatan Rakyat sekiranya Anwar berjaya dilucutkan jawatan di parlimen oleh impeachment yang cuba dibawa Datuk S Nallakaruppan dan peguam Datuk Seri Dr Muhammad Shafee Abdullah dalam permainan politik kuning Umno terbaru terhadap Anwar dalam isu biseksual.

Apabila wartawan tersebut bertanya samada PR bersedia menukar Ketua Pembangkang sekiranya berlaku, Mustafa yang lebih dikenali dengan panggilan Cikgu Pa memilih untuk menjawab secara sinis soalan nakal beliau dengan menyatakan setuju bahawa Anwar digantikan dengan Najib dan Muhyiddin sebagai Ketua Pembangkang selepas PRU13.

Terdahulunya, Shafee berkata usul yang dikemukakan Nalla akan dibawa ke jawatankuasa disiplin parlimen bagi membolehkan Anwar digantung atau mengosongkan kerusi itu.

Membalas tindakan Nalla dan Shafee, Naib Presiden PKR, N Surendran berkata pengusulan pelucutan jawatan Anwar sebagai Ketua Pembangkang menandakan kedua-dua mereka jahil undang-undang.

“Tiada peruntukan atau rujukan kes untuk pelucutan jawatan di Dewan Rakyat. Di England, kali terakhir ia dipakai pada 200 tahun dahulu dan kini sudah lapuk. Rasional pelucutan jawatan adalah untuk menjamin kebertanggungjawaban menteri dan eksekutif dalam pentadbiran. Adanya usul undi tidak percaya, jawatankuasa terpilih dan soal jawab tertutup parlimen menjadikan prosedur ini bahan sejarah.

“Contoh Bill Clinton yang digunakan Shafee juga menunjukkan beliau jahil akan mekanisme pelucutan jawatan di Amerika, yang diguna untuk memecat anggota Kerajaan Persekutuan seperti Presiden,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Timbalan Yang Dipertua Dewan Rakyat, Datuk Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar hari ini berkata tiada peruntukan untuk usul melucutkan jawatan Anwar atas persoalan peribadi dan bukan salah laku beliau di Dewan Rakyat samada dari segi pertuturan dan tindakan.

“Tiada mekanisme untuk itu. Dalam standing orders, pun tak ada,” kata beliau di lobi parlimen.- harakahdaily

Malaysia minta Isreal melobi agar KL jadi tuan rumah Persidangan Gas Dunia...

PKR mendedahkan bahawa Umno BN memohon bantuan dari Israel sewaktu melobi untuk menjadi tuan rumah Persidangan Gas Sedunia (World Gas Conference) yang akan berlangsung pada 4 hingga 8 Jun depan.

Setiausaha Agung PKR, Datuk Saifuddin Nasution Ismail berkata, pendekatan merayu bantuan Israel itu turut mendapat restu dan nasihat Wisma Putra.

"Keadilan mempunyai bukti yang mengesahkan sikap talam dua muka Umno yang secara diam-diam merestui hubungan dua hala di antara Malaysia dan Israel sedang ia menyerang Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim sebagai ejen Israel," kata beliau pada sidang media di lobi Parlimen hari ini.

Beliau turut  menunjukkan satu surat dari wakil Malaysia kepada wakil Israel yang mengesahkan bahawa Wisma Putra telah merestui pendekatan merayu bantuan dan sokongan Israel demi mendapatkan hak penganjuran sebuah persidangan antarabangsa.

Penganjuran persidangan itu, kata Saifuddin dikendalikan oleh Persatuan Gas Malaysia yang diwakili oleh Petronas dan dinasihati mantan Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Persidangan itu adalah persidangan terbesar yang akan mengumpulkan syarikat-syarikat minyak dan gas dari seluruh negara.

Justeru, Saifuddin mendesak Wisma Putra dan Tun Mahathir menjelaskan pendirian mereka berhubung perkara itu kerana ia bertentangan dengan solidariti rakyat malaysia yang memperjuangkan hak rakyat Palestin.

"Sikap Umno dan pimpinan mereka yang menentukan dasar Wisma Putra adalah bertentangan dengan keinginan rakyat Malaysia yang tidak mahu ada sebarang hubungan diplomat menentik sama ada secara langsung atau tidak langsung dengan Israel," katanya yang juga Ahli Parlimen Machang.-harakahdaily

Gov't sought Israeli vote to host gas meet...

PKR has documentary evidence to prove that the Malaysian government had sought Israel’s support and vote for it to host the World Gas Conference scheduled to be held on June 4-8.
NONEThe party’s secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail (left) said he has obtained reports, letters and other documents as proof of Umno’s hypocrisy over its ties with Israel.

“The conference gathers major oil and gas companies from all over the world.

"The organisation of the conference is based on vote by members of the International Gas Union (IGU) which includes Malaysia, Russia, Israel, Brunei, Indonesia and some others.

“The government had lobbied to hold the conference and sought Israel’s help to support Malaysia’s candidacy as host.

“Malaysia also indirectly offered to manage the registration and accommodation of Israeli representatives who attended the 2005 IGU Conference in Tianjin, China,” Saifuddin told the media in parliament house today.

mahathir ebook launching 091211 04He said the manner taken to seek Israel’s help and blessings, and also to seek Wisma Putra’s advise towards the organising of the event by the Malaysian Gas Association (MGA), which represents Petronas, and former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad as advisor, is questionable.

Saifuddin claimed PKR has evidence of Mahathir’s and Wisma Putra’s blessings for the MGA to appeal for Israel’s support towards getting the rights to organise the triennial conference.

The PKR secretary-general also showed a letter written by a Malaysian representative to his Israeli counterpart, which verifies that Wisma Putra had approved the approach used for Malaysia to seek Israel’s support.

Evidence of Umno's hyprocrisy

“Umno leaders’ attitude in determining Wisma Putra’s policy is against the desire of Malaysians who do not want any diplomatic relations with Israel.

“This expose proves Umno leadership’s hypocrisy on issues pertaining to ties with Israel as it shows they want to establish diplomatic ties, and also proves that they are willing to bow down to get Israel’s support.

“PKR urges Wisma Putra and Mahathir to state their stand on allowing the organisers to appeal for help from Israel as this is against the solidarity of Malaysians in supporting the Palestinian cause,” said Saifuddin.

For the past few weeks Umno and its media have been attacking Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim over his
Wall Street Journal interview claiming that the Permatang Pauh MP supported the Israeli cause.

Anwar, however, claimed that the mainstream media had taken the report and his statement out of context.

Foreign Minister Anifah Aman had also said that Malaysia
does not have ties with Israel.-malaysiakini


Phantom voters,'pendatang haram' with blue Mycards and fraud will be rampant in 13th GE...

ambiga question by police over seksualiti merdeka 071111 1Ng Yuen Chan has occupied the same room for 20 years, so the retiree was surprised to learn recently that he had two Indian Malaysian women as roommates.

They were phantom voters registered at his home in Seremban, capital of Negri Sembilan, a key political battleground state and one of many such cases fueling fear of possible fraud in coming elections in the multi-racial country.

"The government should take action. These people don't exist here," Ng said angrily.

Opposition election workers and independent vote-reform advocates say a rash of irregularities could tip the balance in what may be a tight contest between the long-ruling BN coalition and an upstart opposition. Campaigners warn that if the government does not address the issue, they could take to the streets again as they did in a protest by tens of thousands last year that was crushed by police.

"I certainly think the playing field is still very skewed. It could cost the opposition the win," said Ambiga Sreenivasan (right), co-chair of electoral reform group Bersih 2.0.

"If they (the government) don't commit to reform before the... election, there will be a Bersih 3.0 rally."

Bersih 2.0 and other critics allege the coalition, despite promising reform, is illegally registering non-resident supporters in shaky constituencies or those held by opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim's three-party alliance.

In one case near Ng's house, more than 60 people were registered living in two apartment blocks that do not even exist, say opposition activists who have been scouring quarterly voter rolls compiled by the Election Commission.

The government denies a fraud campaign, and the commission says it is cleaning voter rolls. Late last year it purged more than 40,000 names that could not be accounted for, but the revelation only added to fears of widespread irregularities.

The commission also recently fired hundreds of staff after it was found they were responsible for registering voters twice, adding non-citizens, and other "negligence," government-controlled media reported.

Electoral roll a fundamental issue

NONEAnthony Loke (right), an opposition parliamentarian representing Ng's district, said a report by a government-appointed organisation found some 80,000 people were registered in just over 300 addresses, among other discrepancies.

"The most fundamental issue is the electoral roll. It must be cleaned up," he said. "If they don't clean up the roll, other changes are not as significant."

Bersih 2.0 and opposition parties led a rally in Kuala Lumpur last July to demand clean elections - ‘Bersih’ means clean - and were met by tear gas and water cannon. Some 1,600 people were arrested.

The rally gave voice to widespread suspicions documented in many cases over the years that the ruling coalition has routinely used fraud, vote-buying and a stranglehold on traditional media to stay in power.

bersih 2 rally guy fawkes mask 090711Stung by condemnation over the rally crackdown, Prime Minister Najib Razak set up a bi-partisan parliamentary panel in October to study possible reforms. A final report is due on Monday.

An interim report suggested measures including introducing indelible ink to prevent multiple voting, which the Election Commission has pledged to do.

"The main (recommendations) are all accepted and done already. Now we are busy doing the preparations," commission deputy chairperson Wan Ahmad Wan Omar told AFP.

But critics accuse the government of dragging its feet on far-reaching reform and ignoring calls to halt abuses like alleged vote-buying and preventing fair access to media.

New report on irregularities

NONEConcern has sharpened recently amid heavy speculation that the polls - due by next April - could be called within months.

"You can't expect BN to implement (all the) reforms for a system that has benefitted them for years," said Loke, also a member of the parliamentary reform panel.

In 2008, Anwar's three-party opposition alliance snatched away the BN's long-held two-thirds parliamentary majority and now holds four of Malaysia's 13 states, its highest ever number.

Bersih 2.0 has calculated the BN coalition won a parliamentary majority by only 27,000 votes.

Leading polling firm Merdeka Centre, along with another institute that monitors the electoral process, will launch a new report on such irregularities on Friday.

Ibrahim Suffian (left), head of the centre, said its research has found an "abnormal increase of voters" in closely contested constituencies.

"So it would affect the outcome of the election" in some areas, he said

Nazri - no need to worry, no foreigners,or dubious voters coz voters must produce Mycard to vote...

There is no need to worry over the possibility of foreigners being registered as voters or cases of dubious voters, as they must produce their MyKad to register or vote.

NONE"No foreign citizen can be registered as a voter, as the identity card (MyKad) must be used in the registration process.

"As for dubious voters, they still need to produce an IC to vote. If they cannot do so, they cannot vote," Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Nazri Aziz (
right) told the Dewan Rakyat today.

He said this when winding up for the PM's Department in the debate on the royal address.

As such, Nazri said, foreigners or voters of dubious origin would not be able to vote as by right none of them would be able to produce a MyKad.

Nazri explained that this was in accordance to Article 119 of the constitution, which allows only Malaysians to vote.

“There are 33 levels of checks via the the ALIS system, which links agencies to the National Registration Department, and the system will reject voter registrations from those who are not citizens,” argued the minister.

He was responding to concerns raised by opposition MPs while debating the royal address.

Electoral system in ruling government's favour

Cases of foreigners allegedly registered as voters and of 42,000 dubious voters with incomplete information that the Election Commission itself admitted to have been opposition fodder to push for electoral reforms in a system they claim has been weighted to favour the ruling government.
Nazri also brushed aside the call by Lim Kit Siang (DAP-Ipoh Timor) for a special committee to ensure fair elections, saying that the parliamentary select committee (PSC) for electoral reform is already doing the job.

When Lim stood up to press the issue, arguing that the issue was the lack of transparency in the current system, not just the technicalities handled by the PSC, Nazri hit back at him.

“This is like what a Year Six student would say... Not what I would expect from a veteran parliamentarian like you.

“Why would you say something stupid like that? You were an MP when I was still in school,” sniped the minister.

As Nazri continued his winding-up, more opposition MPs stood up to refer to issues concerning irregularities in the electoral system.

Special meeting with EC proposed

Saying that he did not have answers to the issues as they were  either new matters not raised during the debate or something that only the EC could answer, Nazri then proposed a special meeting to address those concerns.

“Since all the MPs are here, I suggest that we meet with the EC in the coming weeks, maybe on the 16th of next month, and I shall be there myself, so that the commission can answer.

“If possible, we can give advance notice so they can come prepared with answers,” offered Nazri.

The opposition MPs agreed and said that they looked forward to the meeting.- malaysiakini

Nazri - Jangan bimbang isu pengundi meragukan...
Masyarakat tidak perlu bimbang dengan kemungkinan warga asing didaftarkan sebagai pengundi atau kes pengundi meragukan, kerana proses pendaftaran memerlukan MyKad ditunjukkan, Parlimen diberitahu.

NONEMenteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Nazri Aziz berkata, di hari pengundian pula, jika pengundi gagal memberikan kad pengenalan mereka tidak akan dibenarkan terlibat membuang undi.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika sesi penggulungan untuk Jabatan Perdana Menteri dalam perbahasan titah Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Katanya, menurut Perkara 119 Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang hanya membenarkan rakyat Malaysia mengundi.

Terdapat 33 tahap semakan dalam sistem ALIS yang menghubungkan Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara dan sistem itu akan menolak pendaftaran daripada rakyat asing, kata Nazri menyentuh isu yang ditimbulkan anggota parlimen pembangkang.- malaysiakini


AngryBird - I do not know whether Nazri is bodoh, bangang or bahlul. Many foreigners in Sabah have acquired blue MYCARDS. How the hell they got this document? Don't pretend you are not aware of this, as your bloody stinking BN/UMNO parties are behind the issuance of blue Mycards. With Mycards, these foreigners have been registered as voters.

wira - Nazri. The point is anyone with a MyKad can vote if he is registered. UMNO is giving easy registration to hundreds of thousands of new MyKad owners just to ensure their survival at the detriment of the country. You are mischievous not to address to that point..

Kgen - Nazri is ignorant or playing stupid. There are lot's of foreigners with MyKad walking around like instant citizens.

JBGUY - He is such a nincompoop. Nazri should know by now that there are huge numbers of foreigners being given ICs on the premise that their new found citizenship would be forfeited if they don't vote for UMNO. The Electoral Roll is also filled with dead and phantom voters. An independent audit firm should be given the task of cleaning up the electoral rolls and they should be given adequate time to do so.

Lt Cdr.B.RMK - Well said GovPayMaster! Nazri is teaching us how to suck eggs. An estimated number of more than 3 million foreigners, especially, Indons are already bumiputras of this country, of course with blue ICs. And yet he got the audacity to say foreigners can't vote. He must the first one to be 'guillotined.'


GE-13 a fight between the filthy rich and the damn poor...

 Pakatan Rakyat (PR) will go into upcoming polls fighting a class war on behalf of the lower classes whom Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said were being held at the mercy of Barisan Nasional (BN) cronies.

The opposition leader told a crowd of more than 2,000 at a ceramah in Ampang, a former Umno stronghold, that PR was facing attacks in BN-controlled media because cronies of the ruling coalition feared cuts into their “obscene profits” if there was a change in government.

“This battle, this election is about the masses, the workers, the low-income earners against the rich cronies of Umno,” he said.

“Every day I am attacked. Who is fighting me? Not Najib or Muhyiddin. It is the tycoons who fear their profits will be cut,” the former deputy prime minister said, referring to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his deputy Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Although he accused several Malaysian billionaires such as those who controlled the Genting and YTL groups, he zeroed in on tycoon Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary’s monopoly of the sugar and rice market.

“Am I glad Malays control certain facets of the economy? Yes, but not to burden others,” the PKR de facto leader said.

“Under Syed Mokhtar, sugar prices are four times higher. You who support Umno, your family members in the paddy fields are being squeezed by your leaders.”

Anwar’s plea to voters comes after a survey conducted last month by independent pollsters Merdeka Center found that Najib’s popularity had surged by 10 percentage points to 69 per cent largely on the back of 78 per cent support from households earning under RM1,500 a month.

The centre credited this largely to Putrajaya’s RM500 cash handout to households with a monthly income of under RM3,000 under the Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia programme.

Najib’s predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s approval rating was 71 per cent before the 2008 polls but BN lost its two-thirds parliamentary majority and four state governments.

Anwar also pointed out to the crowd last night that it was PR that fought for minimum wage and the abolition of the Higher Education Fund (PTPTN), which he said “burdened poor Malays and made them beggars”.

“These young Malays earning less than RM800 a month who are supporting Umno... it is not Umno that is fighting for minimum wage, it is us. We want to cancel PTPTN, not Umno.

“We want to reduce fuel, electricity prices. But Umno says giving free water like Selangor will make the government bankrupt,” Anwar added, referring to the PKR-led administration’s subsidy of the 20 cubic metres of water to each household in the Klang Valley.

Najib has indicated that elections are near although his government’s mandate expires only next year.- The Malaysian Insider

Itu pun para penyokong UMNO/BN masih tak sedaq diri lagi....

PRU13-perang antara yang kaya dan yang miskin...

 Pakatan Rakyat (PR) akan menyebelahi kumpulan masyarakat kelas bawahan untuk Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 akan datang yang mana Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim melihatnya sebagai belas ihsan untuk kroni Barisan Nasional (BN).

Ketua Pembangkang itu memberitahu sekitar 2,000 penyokongnya dalam ceramah di sini, yang merupakan bekas kubu kuat Umno suatu ketika dahulu, PR menerima tekanan daripada media BN kerana kroni kerajaan itu khuatir “keuntungan” mereka akan berkurang sekiranya berlaku perubahan kerajaan.

“Perjuangan ini, pilihan raya adalah antara golongan berpendapatan rendah menentang golongan kaya, kroni Umno.

“Setiap hari saya diserang. Siapa yang menentang saya? Bukan Najib atau Muhyiddin. Tapi jutawan yang takut keuntungan mereka disekat,” kata bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri itu merujuk kepada Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak dan juga timbalannya Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.

Walaupun beliau menuduh sesetengah jutawan Malaysia seperti pemilik Genting dan YTL, beliau turut mempertikaikan monopoli jutawan Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhari terhadap pasaran gula dan beras.

“Adakah saya berbangga Melayu mengawal ekonomi? Ya, tapi bukan untuk menyusahkan rakyat,” kata Ketua Umum PKR itu.

“Di bawah Syed Mokhtar, harga gula empat kali lebih tinggi. Kamu, penyokong Umno, keluarga kamu di sawah padi sedang ditekan oleh pemimpin.”

Tindakan Anwar itu dilihat dibuat selepas kajian bulan lalu yang dilaksanakan oleh Merdeka Center mendapati populariti Najib melonjak 10 peratus kepada 69 peratus dengan 78 peratus datang dari isi rumah berpendapatan kurang daripada RM1,500 sebulan.

Kajian berkenaan mendapati pemberian wang tunai berjumlah RM500 oleh Putrajaya untuk isi rumah berpendapatan RM3,000 ke bawah di bawah Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) adalah penyumbang utama terhadap sokongan tersebut.

Pemimpin sebelum Najib, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, telah menerima rating 71 peratus sebelum pilihan raya 2008 namun BN tewas dua per tiga kerusi Parlimen dan empat negeri.

Anwar turut menjelaskan PR merupakan pihak yang bertanggungjawab berjuang untuk mendapatkan gaji minimum dan pemansuhan Perbadanan Tabung Pendidikan Tinggi Nasional (PTPTN) yang menurutnya membebankan rakyat Malaysia dan menjadikan mereka penggemis.

“Golongan belia ini berpendapatan kurang RM800 sebulan siapa yang menyokong Umno ... Bukan Umno yang berjuang untuk gaji minimum, tapi kami. Kami akan memansuhkan PTPTN, bukan Umno.

“Kami mahu turunkan harga petrol, elektrik. Tapi Umno kata beri air percuma seperti Selangor akan jadikan kerajaan bankrup,” tambah Anwar merujuk kepada pemberian subsidi terhadap 20 meter padu air untuk isi rumah di sekitar Lembah Klang.

Najib telah memberikan gambaran pilihan raya akan berlaku dalam masa terdekat walaupun mandat kerajaannya memerintah hanya akan tamat tahun depan. - The Malaysian Insider

Ceramah Anwar di Taman Kosas,Ampang

Lebih 5,000 Ikuti Ceramah Anwar, Mat Sabu


28 March 2012

Anak menteri punya kes, 2 hari semuanya selesai,tapi...

Sikap dwistandard yang diamalkan Umno BN bukan sahaja melibatkan pemimpinnya sahaja, tetapi turut melibatkan kaum keluarga mereka bagi menyelamatkan nama baik walaupun terpalit isu jenayah.

Demikian kata Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, ketika ceramahnya yang diadakan di Taman Kosas yang dihadiri 5,000 hadirin.

“Saya pergi Johor, kereta saya dipecahkan, Nurul Izzah pergi Felda, Pemuda Umno serang dia hampir tumbuk dia.Tapi syukur alhamdulillah saya tidak terkesan, saya tengok Nurul Izzah walaupun anaknya diugut bunuh, ada mesej kepada dia ‘u berhenti sokong KEADILAN ayah kamu, kalau tidak, anak kamu hilang’. Lapor polis, sehingga kini masih siasatan.

“Maknanya lepas tiga enam bulan masih tiada jawapan, tapi kalau anak menteri punya kes, dua hari menteri kata tiada kes, semuanya selesai,” katanya.

Terdahulu, dilaporkan anak Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Nazri Abdul Aziz, didakwa terlibat insiden menyerang seorang penyelia keselamatan di sebuah kondominium mewah di Mount Kiara.

Ia bermula dengan pergaduhan kecil apabila Mohamad Nedim enggan memberi butiran dirinya sebelum memasuki kawasan kondominium itu, selepas diminta pengawal terbabit.

Bagaimanapun, keesokannya, akhbar arus perdana melaporkan polis mendapati pergaduhan hanya berlaku antara penyelia keselamatan dan pengawal peribadi Mohamad Nedim, tanpa melibatkan beliau sendiri.

“Ini dia cara Umno, kita sudah tahu apa yang boleh kita janjikan yang baik ibarat madu dan kita tahu apa racun yang ada dalam BN,” katanya.-keadilandaily

MACC must investigate Nazri Porsche and luxury MPV: Spending money like water

I refer to the refusal of de-facto Law Minister Nazri Abdul Aziz to declare the source of funds for the Porsche and luxury MPV used by his son Nedim in an assault incident on March 20.

In a statement on March 27, he attempted to ' wash his hands' off the matter by saying that he is not responsible for his son's conduct, but remained silent about the luxury vehicles.

Umno ministers including Najib spending money like water.

The Malaysian public is entitled to know how a Minister on government salary is able to afford such a lavish lifestyle for himself and his family. While the public are suffering from low wages and rising prices, BN leaders and their families have accumulated enormous wealth by virtue of their government positions and political influence.

A stark example is Umno Minister Shahrizat Jalil's family, who purchased luxury condos, cars and made overseas property investments using public funds. The existence of this super-rich Umno-BN elite exposes the insincerity of the Prime Minister's promises of reform and change.

Indeed, during these hard times for the rakyat, the PM himself has spent lavishly on his daughter's recent wedding.

Declare assets like Selangor and Penang

Pakatan Rakyat's Selangor and Penang state governments have set an example for public accountability by declaring the assets of their State Excos. The BN must follow this unprecedented example.

Prime Minister Najib and the BN government must order the declaration of assets of all cabinet ministers,spouses and immediate family members. This assets declaration must be made public before parliament is dissolved for the 13th General Elections.

Meanwhile, the MACC must now investigate the sources of funds for the Porsche and luxury MPV used by Minister Nazri Aziz's son and make public their findings as a matter of public interest.


Nazri says son can handle own affairs



NFC project - No need new tender, we need the Agro Minister to tender his resignation...

The federal government will call for a tender for interested companies keen on taking over the troubled National Feedlot Corporation (NFC) project. Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Minister Noh Omar said today that the federal government was serious in ensuring that the project continues as planned.

According to Bernama, Noh said that this plan has been endorsed by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak and his deputy Muhyiddin Yassin.

"We have appointed a independent auditor because we are serious (to continue this project).

"We are also in the second process of calling for a tender for any interested companies," he said during the ministerial winding up speech during the debate on the motion of thanks for the royal address.

During his speech, Noh did not mention whether outgoing cabinet minister Shahrizat Abdul Jalil's family will lose the project. He also did not mention if the federal government would seek an reimbursement of the RM250 million soft loan to Shahrizat's family.

Troubles involving the NFC were first revealed in the Auditor-General Report 2010, which showed that the company had failed to meet targets set by the federal government in 2007. Following this, PKR produced documents which showed that the RM250 million soft loan was abused for several investments that were not related to the cattle-rearing industry. 

This includes the purchase of several plush condominium units in Kuala Lumpur and abroad, venturing into the restaurant and supermarket industry and a plot of prime land in Putrajaya. After months of denying any wrong doing, Shahrizat announced on March 11 that she would not be re-appointed as a senator when her term expires on April 8. 

A day after her sudden announcement, her husband Mohamad Salleh Ismail was charged with two counts of criminal breach of trust and two counts of violating the Companies Act 1965.- malaysiakini

Najib covering up scandal with new NFC bids

Projek NFC - tak perlu tender, apa yang perlu Menteri Agro 'tender' perletakkan jawatannya...

Kerajaan akan membuka tender kepada mana-mana syarikat yang berminat untuk mengambil alih projek ternakan lembu daging Perbadanan Fidlot Nasional (NFC), kata Menteri Pertanian dan Industri Asas Tani Datuk Seri Noh Omar.
Beliau berkata kementerian itu serius untuk memastikan projek tersebut dapat diteruskan dan berjalan lancar seperti yang dicadangkan sebelum ini. Menurutnya, cadangan mempelawa syarikat lain meneruskan projek itu telah diumumkan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak sebelum ini dengan timbalannya Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin diminta diminta memastikan projek itu diteruskan, lapor Bernama.
"Kita telah melantik juruaudit bebas kerana kita serius (untuk teruskan projek ini). Kita juga dalam proses kedua iaitu membuka tender projek untuk diteruskan oleh mana-mana syarikat yang berminat," katanya ketika menggulung usul menjunjung kasih titah ucapan Yang di-Pertuan Agong bagi kementeriannya di Dewan Rakyat hari ini.
Isu NFC berbangkit apabila didakwa telah menyalah guna peruntukan kerajaan sebanyak RM250 juta untuk projek pengeluaran daging. Dalam ucapannya, Noh tidak menyebut sama ada keluarga menteri kabinet Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil akan kehilangan projek tersebut.

Beliau juga tidak menyebut sama ada kerajaan persekutuan akan mendapatkan semula pembayaran daripada pinjaman mudah RM250 juta kepada keluarga Shahrizat.

Masalah yang melibatkan NFC pertama kali didedahkan dalam Laporan Ketua Audit Negara 2010, yang menunjukkan syarikat itu gagal memenuhi sasaran yang ditetapkan oleh kerajaan persekutuan pada tahun 2007.

Berikutan ini, PKR mengeluarkan dokumen yang menunjukkan bahawa pinjaman mudah RM250 juta didakwa telah disalahgunakan untuk beberapa pelaburan yang tidak berkaitan dengan industri pemeliharaan lembu.

Ini termasuk pembelian beberapa unit kondominium mewah di Kuala Lumpur dan luar negara, meneroka industri restoran dan pasar raya serta sebidang tanah di Putrajaya.

Selepas berbulan-bulan menafikan sebarang salahlaku, Shahrizat mengumumkan pada 11 Mac bahawa beliau tidak akan dilantik semula sebagai senator apabila tempohnya tamat pada 8 April.

Sehari selepas membuat pengumuman tersebut, suaminya Datuk Seri Mohamad Salleh Ismail didakwa atas dua tuduhan pecah amanah jenayah dan dua tuduhan melanggar Akta Syarikat 1965.-malaysiakini
