PAS is a toxic party that is oblivious of economic stimulation, good governance, international diplomacy and climate issues. They are incapable of respecting the common law, universal legal system and human rights. We should not vote for them or any parties associated with them for the sake of generations to come. They are riding on religion to shadow their hunger and greed for position which they had recently tasted, through self imposed backdoor method of the Sheraton move. For all youth, don’t destroy the country you loved by voting them. Think of your future, if not the future of your… Read more »

PAS will focus its 15th General Election strategy and resources on 80 chosen seats, hoping to win at least 40 and start it down the path to having a prime minister from the party by 2050.

Pakistan – big flood. Losses USD 15B and over 1K killed. Pakistan must be clearing and developing the hills and lands?

Kulim Residents Fear Looming Disaster Over Hill Slope Logging by Predeep Nambiar dd September 3, 2022 10:00 AM

“I wonder why the YB (Yeo) did not raise this when he was part of the Pakatan Harapan (PH) state government or even sent a letter asking for it to be cancelled”

Kulim is in Kedah governed by PAS. You should direct your question toMB Sanusi, not YB Yeo.

Omega 888

Yes, we are aware of PAS governing Kedah. From just one state, they are now governing 3 states equaled to Pakatan Harapan. That’s how much they have improved. They are now very much focused and specific in their approach. 

PH before GE14, Talk, Talk, Talk only. After GE14, black shoes, flying cars, national cars, tinted car windows, threw away promised manifesto and remained so very quiet. Now before GE15, back to talk, talk, talk make a lot of noise, noise, noise. GE15 ?

Oh mega – you come back again? PAS improve?You cannot tell 1/888 of how they improve? Or You love them to flatten ULU Muda FOREST RESERVE and tell penang kias to drink teh tarik and kopi or kau kau? You support flatten ULU Muda but against development in Penang?

Omega 888

What is there to dare and confront Barisan Nasional. They seem to be doing alright. They are now the only Single Coalition Party available to govern and give stability to our Nation. 

As for PAS, they seem to be doing well too. From just one, they now have 3 states under their wing equal to Pakatan Harapan. As for PH, from governing our Nation to five state and now only 3 states. After GE15, maybe one or no states.

Is this a good enough confrontation for you, shriek ?

Stable with ketuanan, religion and race? Stable with $$ under table? Stable with RM 4.6 to USD1? You can give1/888 how has PAS states improved? In Kelantan many has gone to other states to cari makan, no segregation when lining up to pay.

Ok instead of clearing the forest, it is time to clear the rubbish, leaves and debris that block the drains and longkang.

The movie ‘Mat Kilau’ was the biggest Malaysian box office hit ever, with RM90 million in ticket sales. This was our version of an Islamic Rambo rebelling against the “oppression” of British rule.

(Sept 6): The Malaysian ringgit tumbled to a 24-year low as a stronger US dollar and domestic political risks damped sentiment.

The ringgit fell as much as 0.2% to 4.5015 per US dollar as it breached the 4.5002 mark reached in January 2017. The Malaysian currency is now at its weakest level since January 1998, during the Asian financial crisis.
