Why is blogger, MP and Penang chief of staff Jeff Ooi getting all mired in UMNO politics?
Earlier PAS president Hadi Awang and PKR president Wan Azizah Wan Ismail did the same, too, in opening their doors to some ‘unstable’ characters.
Let the UMNO sickos fight lah, Pakatan Rakyat, do your work for the people!
Now, Jeff joins Mahathir & Co. to ask Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to resign as prime minister, asking the latter to set a date (malaysiakini).
“Many economists and financial analysts have predicted a downturn in foreign investments and an economic slump in the long run if the crisis continues unchecked. So Pak Lah must act by announcing his retirement plan. It will restore investors’ confidence in the long run,” the MP said, adding that investors would not want to invest in a politically unstable country. Since all investors come in for the long haul, they would not want to put their money in a country mired in political uncertainties”.
So says the Penang Chief Minister’s chief-of-staff!
But what does a top investor – Japanese manufacturer Ibiden – which today announced a one year investment worth RM1.2 billion in a third manufacturing plant in Penang – say?
“The company (Ibiden) was unperturbed by the current political crisis in Malaysia”.
Malaysia, says the company manager Yutaka Torimaru, is:
“far more secure and stable than many other countries in the region.”
Echoing him is Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng, who says that Ibiden’s confidence in Penang proved that:
“Foreign investors were not swayed by Umno’s political dramas. Penang CAT governance, based on competency, accountability and transparency would continue to attract foreign investments.
Chief minister of Penang and chief of staff never discuss these things izzit?
