Anwar, Mahathir, Wan Azizah menerajui barisan pimpinan Pakatan Harapan

1521

So Anwar will be de facto leader, Mahathir the chairman and Wan Azizah the president of the coalition. Who could have imagined. But the people and civil society too must play a big role in putting forward their aspirations for reform and change. We cannot just leave it to the politicians.

Pakatan Harapan should also think about how to accommodate a party like Parti Sosialis Malaysia. And it should also come up with a clear manifesto with pro-people policies, the main points of which should be easily grasped by the people.

KENYATAAN MEDIA MAJLIS PRESIDEN PAKATAN HARAPAN
13 JULAI 2017

Menyedari bahawa rakyat mengharapkan perubahan politik negara ke arah pemerintahan yang lebih demokratik, adil dan sejahtera serta sebuah kerajaan yang komited untuk melaksanakan reformasi institusi, menjalankan tadbirurus yang baik dan mengutamakan kebajikan rakyat; dan

Menginsafi bahawa Malaysia di bawah pemerintahan kerajaan Barisan Nasional sedang berada di dalam keadaan krisis yang tenat, terpalit dengan skandal rasuah dan salah guna kuasa yang amat luar biasa, dan rakyat menanggung beban;

Maka, Pakatan Harapan mengambil tanggungjawab untuk membela rakyat dan membina semula negara yang dirosakkan oleh pentadbiran Dato Sri Najib Tun Razak. Melalui kesatuan politik di antara KEADILAN, DAP, AMANAH dan PPBM, kami akan menggembleng seluruh kekuatan rakyat untuk memenangi pilihanraya umum ke-14 dan membentuk kerajaan.

Oleh yang demikian, Pakatan Harapan mendokong matlamat-matlamat berikut:
1) Menurunkan kerajaan pimpinan kleptokrat yang diketuai oleh Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak;
2) Memulihkan kedaulatan dan keluhuran undang-undang seperti yang termaktub di dalam Perlembagaan Malaysia;
3) Membatalkan dan memperbetulkan semua tindakan yang melanggar undang-undang dan menggadaikan kepentingan rakyat di bawah pentadbiran Dato’ Seri Najib termasuk mendapatkan kembali wang rakyat yang hilang melalui skandal besar seperti 1MDB;
4) Membebaskan semua tahanan politik dan menggugurkan semua dakwaan politik;
5) Reformasi undang-undang dan institusi yang telah disalahgunakan terutamanya berhubung kuasa Perdana Menteri; dan
6) Menghadkan penggal perkhidmatan Perdana Menteri kepada dua penggal sahaja.

PAS is officially launching Gagasan Sejahtera Rakyat, the country’s third political bloc to contest in the 14th general election, in September.

The opposition coalition is also expected to announce that it will contest more than 120 seats in Peninsular and East Malaysia, in a bid to present itself as a viable alternative to both BN and Harapan.

Penang today unveil a Pakatan Harapan state leadership line-up.

Penang Chief Minister and DAP secretary-general Lim Guan Eng, chairs the state coalition. His deputies are the state chairmen of the component parties – Mansor Othman (PKR), Chow Kon Yeow (DAP), Dr Mujahid Yusof Rawa (Amanah) and Marzuki Yahya (Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia).

Najib has to give out more freebies to Felda folks to keep their loyalty. A desperate move indeed as Felda settlers are awakened by Tun M’s ceramah.

Sim
Guest

Reveal the source of your funding for the Felda incentives, PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli has challenged Prime Minister Najib, following the latter’s announcement of cash assistance for settlers at yesterday’s Felda Settlers’ Day celebration in Putrajaya.

“The four incentives add up to RM1.42 billion when Putrajaya and Felda just don’t have that kind of money,” Rafizi said in a statement today, querying where the prime minister would find the money for four out of the six initiatives announced.

“Najib should specify where his government found the money so that the Felda settlers do not fall victim to Barisan National propaganda.”

Felda settlers have expressed their frustration over last week’s announcement of incentives by Prime Minister Najib Razak, saying that the financial aid is merely a short-term solution to their problems.

Instead, they demand that the government and Felda Global Ventures Holdings Bhd (FGV) meet them to determine their real grouses and not just resort to handing out “sweets”.

“If they do this all the time, Felda is like a father who gives out sweets each time his children throw a tantrum,” said 69-year-old Mat Ali Musa from Felda Purun in Bera, Pahang.

The high cost of living, low wages and jobs lost to foreigners are the main concerns for voters ahead of the 14th General Election, a recent survey by the Invoke Centre for Policy Initiatives (I-CPI) has shown.

“The respondents are concerned with economic issues, the high cost of living, jobs and low wages,” said PKR vice-president Rafizi Ramli.

“These issues are far more important to voters compared to bribery and misappropriation of public funds.”

MO1’s MIB for Indians is finally revealed as an offering for them to become Indian Muslims (Mamaks) to qualify as Bumiputeras?

MO1 will gain new fixed deposit for Indians in GE14. MIC chief Subramaniam can take the lead for conversion? Goodies as bumiputeras are far better than the current dedak offerings.

Meanwhile Ridhuan Tee should appeal for Chinese Muslims to qualify as Bumiputeras too?

The headline guaranteed to p… off Chinese voters……
“I have listened to the requests made (by the community) and I accept that Indian-Muslims are Bumiputera……” – Najib Razak

greg

This is the extension of MO1’s MIB charade which is cynical, opportunistic and devious, and a carrot to dangle in front of Indian voters with GE14 in sight.

What has MO1 done for those Indian Malaysians whose families were born here and are still without citizenship? What happened to the nambikei MOU he signed with Hindraf to entice Indian Malaysians to vote for Umno in GE13?

MIC president Subramanian can lead the way to mass convert (a one way ticket) to Islam and become bumiputeras overnight for instant benefits like ASB and housing discount. MIC can become MIM.

I once lived with Indian Muslim (Mamak) neighbours.
Once outside of their Malay-looking house (e.g. in the car porch), they spoke in pure Malay.
But once inside, pure Tamil speaking filled the air till the tiny crevices of the walls. Even their afternoon TV movies were pure Tamil at the best of their Tamil enjoyment!
Trying too hard to qualify for Bumiputera status (on the outside)? Ask “what-say-you” any pure Malaysian Melayu.

Note: Most Indian Muslim (Mamak) cannot ditch their typical genetic? Indian head-gyroscoping (rotating) when they speak. I can’t help myself but also head-gyroscope while conversing with them face to face!
Penang multiculturalism mah!

Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad wants Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to join him in responding to allegations of misconduct in their respective premiership at a forum next month.

Mahathir said he will be answering all questions asked of him at the “Nothing to Hide 2.0” forum, including whether he himself had stolen any public funds.

MO1 must not hide behind his strategic communication team.

Malays must ask themselves if they want Hadi’s hudud to take them backwards just like in Aceh. Kelantan folks have been moving south to work in Singapore as cleaners. They need real hope in Harapan to bring progress minus the BN corruption to the state. Real jobs bring income, not focusing on punishment using hudud laws.

I do have to say abolishing GST is bad idea. It’s not that there is not enough money to abolish it but rather GST is inevitable, once implemented it should be kept even if just a low rate because reimplementing it in the future is administratively expensive.

Keeping a low rate even for 10-20 years make more sense than abolishing and too politically expedient
