Parliament is the place where Muhyiddin, Anwar or anyone else must prove they have a majority

Aliran has just released this message:

In light of a possible loss of confidence in Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, Aliran stresses the importance of upholding parliamentary democracy instead of sidelining it.

We reiterate the urgency of convening Parliament to resolve the multiple crises facing the nation. It is alarming that Parliament is only sitting for 52 days from March to December 2020.

The only way to resolve the political impasse is to do things openly and in line with parliamentary convention.

MPs should have the option of voting on a motion of confidence in Parliament. In the UK, this can take the form of a confidence motion (by the government) or a no-confidence motion (usually by the opposition).

Such motions should not be lowered down the order paper after “government business”. Under parliamentary convention, a no-confidence vote takes precedence over normal parliamentary business for the day and usually begins with speeches by the prime minister and the leader of the opposition. In the UK, there have been three votes of confidence and 23 votes of no-confidence since 1945. Full statement on Aliran website

Biotech: Guilt-free palm oil?

A commodity associated with tropical deforestation may soon have a synthetic replacement – but what will it mean for the farmers whose livelihoods depend on palm oil plantations?

Once again, Anwar Ibrahim has earned himself another losers’ tag in the game to be Prime Minister. Deservedly, for his timing was so atrociously poor and his gambit so flimsy in a tenuously fluid political situation.

“timing was so atrociously poor” since today almost all malay institutions… cannot accept a leader of multiracial party to be PM due to the deeply ingrained ketuanan psyche?

As a tai lo, you should tell the Penang gov. to not be such hypocrites. Charging plastic bag for RM1 next year while they are responsible for building so many artificial islands around the coast (which one is more damaging to the ecosystem). In 2016, … [allegedly] says if the federal gov. have no money, they can ask the Penang gov. for a loan. But few days ago, CM Chow has requested the federal gov. for allocation of funds. Who has no decency? Anyways, I am happy for you, at least you have your rice bowl at the DAP cellar.

Sorry tai lo, I don’t support PN government. As for DAP, I consider them far worse than PN. They are covering their sins after they realised that all the sands blasted out from our hills are being used to enrich themselves. If you think plastic bags bought from the supermarkets is a big cause of pollution, you are not very smart. They just do it to show they are somehow very green…As for the statement asking pg. gov. for loan, it’s your former boss says (got proved from the newspaper back in 2016) They know they cannot become federal anymore… Read more »

you dont support PN but you love PAS and migrating Kota Bharu. Your PAS Minister very special; more than James Bond. Can move in and out during Covid without need for licence.
Show me the billions. No need billions, Thousands will do. Sink land, Hong Land and Shenzhen people can show how they from minimal investment from the seabed reclaimed and become land for development. Cut hills, kbkb. We have good land in Penang to be used as Airport.

Lol, I support neither side. I never said I liked PAS and the only reason I am more vocal about DAP is because they are governing Penang + they won all Chinese-majority parliamentary seats. You must be joking, what industry did DAP brought in from overseas, most of it already came under Tun Lim Chong Eu era. Don’t compare us with SG or Shen Zhen, our reclaimed lands are mainly used for housing (profit for the state) while they have strategic long-term planning. You know who benefits under DAP administration, their developer friends…they next thing they like is building airports… Read more »

Singing a new tune? You sing moving to Kota Bharu where under PAS is better than in Peng land. In the 70’s to 90’s, good land is plentiful. Most people ride bicycle or ride Boon Siew kapcai. There were bullock carts and ringgit is bigger than bullock cart wheel. Graduates can buy a house and a car after 5 years. But the world has changed. Dr Lim was lucky, Yankees are fighting in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos is fighting and China is under the bamboo curtain. Yankees will not invest in those countries. Investors are pouring into Sink land and… Read more »

In past, sink and hong land has so much land. No need to reclaim from sea. Similarly, KL and Ipoh need not to landfill and build in tin mining or rubber estate land. Gilakan can giving land to their tangan and kaki chippy. You have how much acres??

Sooner or later Malaysians will lack the necessary skillsets to work and earn money in Singapore. Better upgrade now, learn to at least speak in English or Mandarin. BM has no value in Singapore unless you work in Geylang Serai pasar malam.

Goldman Sachs has agreed to pay nearly $3bn to end a probe of its role in the 1MDB corruption scandal.

The bank’s Malaysian subsidiary also admitted in US court that it had paid more than $1bn in bribes to win work raising money for the Malaysian state-owned wealth fund.

US officials said the record settlement reflected Goldman’s “central” role in a “massive corruption scheme”.

Key question: How much of this money is returning to Malaysia?

If Anwar is PM, we all know how this is going to play out, he will try to cover the lack of Malay support in his side by playing the Malay+Islam card. Why do we even care at this point?

No dominant malay party anymore as malay politics are very fragmented, even Umno now has at least 4 factions. No ala carte anymore but need combo to be government. Malay battleground will play out alongside covid pandemic.

DAP with 42 parliamentary seats can sit back, wait for suitors desperate to complete a majority combo.

While Umno is pressing PM8, Che Det-Kuli tag team could seize the day with GPS+Warisan+DAP?

No match because teh susu is like tunlang. Always kbkb. He talk being green but does the opposite. He moves from heritage area and go and live in a condo built by developers. He supports his relative who works in a developer company. He has a 4WDs and has to change wheels for city drive or for country drive. He will go and look for the cheapest one ton mee in Penang. (drive round searching) Correct me if that is not what he said.
