Petition urging Azmin to quit hits 143,000, surpassing Tajuddin petition

12

An online petition calling for Senior Minister Azmin Ali’s resignation has collected over 143,000 signatures – after just one day – and the figure is rising by the minute.

The petition contains just one line – that Azmin has purportedly failed to live up to public expectations of a senior minister.

The petition has already surpassed the petition calling for Tajuddin Rahman’s removal, which collected 139,706 online signatures – and declared victory in just over 24 hours – when the government announced the Prasarana chairman’s removal with immediate effect. I didn’t think that figure could be surpassed anytime soon, given the storm of outrage over Tajuddin’s distasteful conduct at his press conference.

Well, I was wrong. Azmin is soaring (sinking?) to a new hard-to-beat mark.

A Change.org user going by the name of Kerajaan Gagal (Failed Government) started both petitions.

What do you think? Should Azmin Ali resign?

In a leap in efforts to improve the wages of cleaners of Singapore in future, some 40,000 Singaporeans and permanent residents employed in outsourced cleaning jobs will receive a basic monthly income of at least S$2,420 from July 2028, almost double what they are getting now.

Those working as outdoor cleaners, healthcare cleaners, dishwashers, conservancy general cleaners, restroom cleaners and refuse collectors will get a higher base salary of S$2,835 by 2028, up from S$1,442 at present.

How Malaysia’s Parliament created a politician like Tajuddin

https://www.thestar.com.my/opinion/columnists/over-the-top/2021/06/08/how-malaysias-parliament-created-a-politician-like-tajuddin

Tajuddin is not at fault alone, for it is ultimately us, Malaysians, who have to think about how to create a Parliament with members who treat citizens of all races, faiths and stations with respect, dignity and compassion.

No. It should be Adam Baba and DG Hisham that needs to resign. They have months to prepare and how many lives are lost as a result of that.

In many countries a leader would tender resignation voluntarily once he/she loses public confidence but not in Malaysia as many are self elected.
His facebook being bombarded with such # to quit.

Speaking/approving without proper consideration/consultation, incompetence, dereliction of duty, blatant communal partiality, abuse of power, sense of entitlement, conflict of interest, kleptocracy/larceny, selective enforcement/prosecution, withheld rights/facilities, callousness to suffering – these are now normal in TakBolehLand. Let us not label just one person as exceptional.

Perfect storm brews as PM Muhyiddin wrestles with Malaysia’s Covid-19 pandemic woes

https://www.straitstimes.com/asia/se-asia/perfect-storm-brews-as-muhyiddin-wrestles-with-covid-19-pandemic-woes

From confusion over Covid-19 lockdown rules and vaccine appointments to complaints over meagre aid packages and double standards in enforcing restrictions, not to mention a spate of deaths in police custody, the Muhyiddin administration is reeling from a laundry list of grievances.

It has led to a prolonged backlash on social media. There were even anti-government protests despite the pandemic, culminating in an online petition calling for the Malaysian premier’s second-in-command, Azmin Ali, to resign.
