When Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said he and Najib Tun Razak had made a deal about when the latter will take over the leadership of Malaysia, no one asked the right question!

One experience mainstream editor merely said “It’s a done deal” and another ex-editor asked “When?”. As if that is the only thing that matter.

Now you know why the media is in such a pathetic state like it is today. Every news fall into people’s morning tables or lazy laps just like that!

No one asked if it is even legitimate for Abdullah to make such a statement. Had he consulted other UMNO members? Had he even broach the subject with other BN component parties, or are they now non-existent, after the March 8 Tsunami?

Sadly no one ever considered any of these questions.

But in “Are we a democracy or a feudal state?”, lawyer Charles Hector asked in his blog if it is even constitutional for Abdullah and Najib to have come to this decision all on their own.

It looks like the two not-so-gentlemen may have even insulted the Yang Di Pertuan Agong by going against the Federal Constitution:

In Article 43 of the Federal Constitution — and it says that it is the “…Yang di-Pertuan Agong shall first appoint as Perdana Menteri (Prime Minister) to preside over the Cabinet a member of the House of Representatives who in his judgment is likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of that House…” – it is the Yang Di-Pertuan Agung that appoints the PM – not the current PM who decides on the next PM…and here Abdullah is reported stating that there was an agreement —

Hector asked: Is this is not an action that demonstrates disrespect to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Is it also not an action (….an agreement) that is in breach of our very own Federal Constitution?

Our highest law of the land, the Federal Constitution, is also clear that the only consideration before appointment by the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is that the candidate for PM is “…likely to command the confidence of the majority of the members of that House[i.e. the Dewan Rakyat]…”

Do the two individuals think they have the support of the majority or are even liked or respected by Malaysians?

We only know that there are not enough UMNO divisions who are courageous enough to nominate someone who will challenge Abdullah or even his deputy.

I hope Karpal Singh or someone else will make a police report aganst the two power crazy duo!

    This could be how it was done.

    A: I will step down by Sept 16 but you must let me enjoy at least 2 corridor which is the Iskanda in Johor and the one in Kedah, you can take the balance but one more condition Sabah-Sarawak corridor we must share 50-50.

    N: Okay I agree, you cannot do anything to the defence budget and also cannot scrap the National Service. You must also distroy the photos too, if the photos is published I will contest against you for sure.

    A: I can agree to you but once you be PM the defence will have to come under KJ okay?

    N: I talk to my cousin already and he want the Finance potfolio so KJ can have the defence.

    A: If this is all okay than I can resign by 16 Sept but one last thing you must let me keep the Tongkat Ali garden the Jane help me to plant.

    Let’s not CHEAT one another. Bodohwi will never give power to Najis. Why? Just look at those who are fronting Najis? They are all scumbags and nimcompoops who are baying for Bodohwi’s blood and want to tear apart his family and eat them alive. How do you give power to such people? Bodohwi prefers PR more than AMENO and its marauding, crony cultured hordes.

    As far as Badawi is concerned, he is `stringing`: “keeping my options open until someone better comes along”

    The one who bought the hoax are the nuts who head Star and NST. And Najib don`t believe it either.
    AAB has got Najib on a tight leash. About all Najib can do is roll over and play dead.

    Oh dear. Please don’t involve the Honorable Karpal Singh unless his willing. Yhis man of righteous conscience has lodged many police reports against Mahathir, Najib, the AG, and others. Why no investigations against these reported “felons”?

    And Anwar even lodged a police report against the Attorney General for not instituting criminal and other appropriate actions against the infamous six implicated in the Linggamgate scandal.

    Both the IGP and AG will be hard pressed to answer that after, hopefully, Sept 16.

    I really hope the king comes out soon & makes a clear stand against UMNO & also one of lack in confidence, dissapointment in the way they have run the country & all the crimes & corruption of their time in power.

    We must make them pay to have any real precedents in this country.

    In China, they shoot corrupt officials that have been proven guilty!

    A really long jail term would be better for the UMNO thieves!

    The whole world is looking at laughing us. The situation is critical! PR you don’t want to take over a Malaysia that has been sucked dry, especially at the last minute. Do it now, the nations resources & reserves are being drained dry!

    Even PR is a filmsy coalition waiting to melt-away because of PAS which will surely impose its islamic ideology once in power after ousting BN. So the old saying “strange bedfellows” is certainly true for PR, in our quest for political change we have to choose between the devil and deep blue sea unless the Constitution is amended to protect us of the religious and racial classification. It would even be far-sighted to start a movement for Malaysia to be a republic which would further guarantee equal rights to all citizens and do away with a nation divided by awarded-titles, race and religion, this will eventually happen but only after scotching the country of all its wealth, peace and harmony. Its really up to the citizens to throw out the unworthy and put in the worthy. Its already happening only hope it does not stop with the eventual coming into power by PR. For now the people have already realized that the power of change is in their hands not in their elected representatives.

    Exclusive for Susan’s readers.

    Today, in the morning, I called almost all my friends to go to the Pos Laju (office) to collect RM625. Some say long queue and other reasons. I went about 2p.m. and in an hour I walk out with RM625.

    Why? If Najib is”removed” for good with the cunning and silent master-strategy of Anwar Ibrahim, then I will only have Pak Lah to thank for with walking to the Pos office not to sent love letters to Susan Loone but walking in the doors of Pos Laju with RM1.15 cents in my pockets and walking out with RM625 a “POP”.

    Susan, I also want to buy “Susu Kacang” liao. Hehehe. You want some?

  19. donplaypuks says:

    Susan

    As much as I am no supporter of BN, AAB or Najib, I really think you are scraping the barrel with this ‘insult to the King’ headlines. This is sheer nonsense!

    Political parties do not need the King’s approval for them to discuss or put in place a clear line of succession to party leadership. This is a must not only for stability within the country, but also in so far as foreign investors are concerned.

    Thus, AAB’s anointing of Najib is in line with time hounoured practices here, as well as internationally. There is nothing sinister in it or the announcement, except of course ‘when the time is right’ is a bit of a cop out.

    But, whether, when the time comes the King will accept Najib’s nomination, is of course another matter. In practice, in our history, no King has ever blocked a PM’s candidature. if there is an objection later, then we will cross the bridge when we come to it!

    In the meantime, we know you have an axe to grind against Najib vis-a-vis the Altantuya court case. But don’t let your perception of something come across as though you have evidentiary proof of criminal culpability.

    It’s always wise to be a little circumspect.

    Razaleigh Claims A BN Component Party Will Leave The Coalition

    MENTAKAB, June 14 (Bernama) — The Member of Parliament for Gua Musang, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah Saturday claimed that a Barisan Nasional (BN) component party will leave the coalition before the end of the month.

    Tengku Razaleigh, who was a former Finance Minister, however did not name the
    component party that would leave the BN.

    “I received news that one party will leave the BN before the end of the month,” he claimed when attending a gathering of Umno branches in Pahang, here.

    http://www.bernama.com/bernama/state_news/news.php?id=339522&cat=et

    Tengku Razaleigh says this after Badawi appointed Najib to take over before UMNO GE. Jadi, Badawi will resign before Sept 16 – when Anwar plans to take over.

    It only means that Badawi can see the writing on the wall.
    So Najib will LEAD opposition in the new gormen.

    Mahathir`s latest:

    1. Several blogs have given space to a scurrilous statement that I, my wife and my children, have USD 199.45 million and S $ 42,000,000 in fixed deposit in the Israeli National Bank in Singapore.

    2. The scum who alleges this does not have the guts to give his name.

    3. UMNO can make a statement about the money I gave to Dato Abdullah when I stepped down. Better still Dato Abdullah can explain how much of the 1.4 billion Ringgit in cash, shares and property that my staff and one of his Ministers handed over to him is still with him.

    Despite what those who said we do not need the Agong’s approval for hand-over of power to Najib, are we saying that it’s an entitlement to become a PM? Tell me where in the constitution says that it’s ok to appoint a person as PM by another? If you still don’t get it, let me tell you it’s the people of Malaysia who decides not the nitwit sleeping PM. Anyevent, the noose is tightening against C4 for his involvement in Altantuya’s murder and who in the world would want a murder suspect to be the PM?

    The King will be duly informed
    The one the commands the respect

    The sleeping beauty and najilt
    Bargaining on their silly wars
    Trying hard to play the nice odd couple
    Beneath them the fiery clashes begin
    Saying smooth words to allay fear
    Amongst their supporters

    The feudal system they try to introduce
    Into their party to set the rules
    Preaching democracy in lips services
    Manipulating their survival……
    Ignoring the members’ right to choose

    Is not others don’t ask the correct question
    It is the publicity generating scheme
    The sleeping beauty and najilt
    The King just watches with his cup of tea
    Smiling looking into his stable of horses

    Outside the palace
    The gentlemen pact headlined the newspapers
    Papers sell people read

    There is nothing in the Constitution either about who shall be appointed the PM. It is up to the election winning majority party to decide and nominate to be ratified by the swearing in by the King.

    If the King rejects it, then we have a problem.

    Go read the Constitution or ask a lawyer friend.

    Abdullah’s fuel-hike move falls short

    From The Straits Times Southeast Asia correspondent Leslie Lopez

    KUALA LUMPUR, June 15 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Badawi’s scramble to stem the widening fallout from his high-stakes gamble to raise fuel prices is exposing his government’s shortcomings in crisis management.

    What’s more, the policy flip-flops and the raft of poorly-designed counter-measures have only brought into focus the distortions in the Malaysian economy and Datuk Seri Abdullah’s reluctance to confront the powerful vested interest groups that profit from it.

    The government’s missteps have also allowed the Opposition headed by former deputy prime minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to seize the initiative with public sentiment building against the government.

    Don’t you know that as the President of UMNO, he acts like a supremo? All those below him must tow the line or else they will be removed. Is this called the traditional democracy of UMNO?

    Leadership succession in UMNO has always been the Deputy must be able to learn to acquire the highest degree of tolerance and endurance. If he cannot wait for the leader to retire or step down, he had better leave before he gets booted out. Any utterance otherwise will lend him in profanity. You think under the circumstance, NR will dare openly defy AAB?

    As I see it, the leader has wide sweeping power and that corrupts absolutely. Just imagine someone were to pass a vote of no confidence on AAB at the coming UMNO Asembly! In my view, it will not happen. If it ever happened, some if not many heads will roll before the Asembly!

    That is the legacy the membership is not happy about. Don’t they realise that the quota system was purposely engineered to protect the position of the presidency.
    Did any of the past Presidents of UMNO ever follow the Constitution or respect the King? When they have to protect and perpetuate their position, they will care more of their own security than anything else.

    Do you think at the moment, AAB and NR have any respect for the King? My guess is as good as anybody’s else.

    Oh, my God, what an amazing declaration by our courageous Raja Petra. I salute you for your moral courage, rarely found in most people and leaders of the world.

    DPM’s wife was at the scene of Altantuya’s murder! Goodness gracious me. That declared allegation is very incriminating and demonising for both DPM and his wife.

    With the three boxes of evidences purportedly and or reportedly in the possession of Ezam, DPM and his wife will be facing a tough time to stand straight to face the Rakyat. With such a tainted character who is the declared presumptive PM of Malaysia, how can Malaysians allow DPM to move around so freely and doing his work as if nothing has or will happen to him?

    If DPM has any dignity or modicum of pride left, he must resign from his position until his case is absolutely cleared.

    In the light of the revealing circumstances, AAB, if he has any prior knowledge that his deputy’s wife was at the scene of the murder of Altantuya, he must do what he has to do as leader of the country; and that is, to exercise the power invested in him to either suspend his deputy or sack him and direct the appropriate authority to investigate and and indict him if there is sufficient evidence.

    God saves Malaysia from ignominy.
