Umno: A party divided and in distress

The battle against corruption must continue

44
2274

With Najib Razak imprisoned, the fissures in Umno are being laid bare. Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob appears to be under intense pressure from the party’s ‘court cluster’ ie those with court cases who are now unnerved by Najib’s jailing.

Some in the party seem to be worried that the longer Najib is in jail and as more corruption cases come before the courts, support for the party could slip in the weeks ahead. That would spell doom for their plans to take over the government and try and put an end to their legal nightmare.

For outsiders, it seems weird for party supporters to try and force an election when the party itself is already part of government.

One thing is for sure: the developments over the last week have helped to repair some of the damage to Malaysia’s international image.

So let’s not allow the good to be undone. Let’s continue the battle against corruption; everyone has to do his or her part and not let up.

A1 == 1. Dr M Rejects Claims Of Influence Over Judges In Najib’s Trial by FMT reporters dd August 27, 2022 12:35 PM https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/nation/2022/08/27/dr-m-rejects-claims-of-influence-over-judges-in-najibs-trial/ ======== **** It has to do with the timing. Why the sudden urgency now. Why not after the GE15 ? Imagine, 3 years plus and on going, but the last appeal can get wrapped up within the week. Why no similar action in the 1st year? Why not in the 2nd year? So many reasons has been entertained and suddenly just as GE15 is around the corner, no more already? If can wait and let the case to drag… Read more »

It’s a long way back for MCA and MIC now. Becoming more credible champions of non-Malay issues risks upsetting the very Malay parties whose coat-tails they need to ride. Stay silent, and they slide further out of the spotlight.

It appears as though the entire premise for their existence – multiracial representation – will never truly be achieved, not as long as BN and the government is set up as currently constructed.

” 10 States Likely To Stay Out” by Joseph Kaos Jr. dd Wednesday, 31 Aug 2022.

This is one of the reasons why we Rakyat should go for a ‘ Single coalition Party’ like Barisan Nasional to govern our Nation. If we give different political parties different states to rule, we will end up with like having ‘ Wild horses pulling in different directions.’

While the political parties look for ‘convenience’ for themselves in making this sort of decisions they forget the inconvenience they are causing for the Rakyat who are the actual VOTERS.

Have not made any attempt to move forward into the 21st century’s Digital and automation age. Don’t seem to be able to come with new ideas, no vision, no innovations.

Our Government should not fall for these excuses from the business community. Notice how the shortage of workers excuse is always followed by loss of revenue in BILLIONS.

These is to impress the Government that they will also losing revenue just as much, in billions. Our Government should tell the business community to do something about it themselves by looking into upgrading their business process or methods and the adoption of Green Technology.

Our Government should continue to maintain the policy of reducing dependence on foreign workers. Our Home ministry and Home minister was and still is right on the spot on this. Our own Rakyat are still available. Just that they have moved forward. The business community has not caught up with them yet. Wonder why?

As long as our Government gives in to these business people’s excuses of shortage of workers, our Nation will not be able to move forward. Our Rakyat will keep moving out of our Nation to greener pastures.

Umno and BN want to turn GE15 into a vote for Najib and Rosmah and against the nine judges who had unanimously adjudged Najib guilty of corruption and the High Court judge who found Rosmah also guilty of corruption on Thursday.

In the next general election, a vote for Umno and BN will be a vote for Najib and for corruption against the rule of law.

It is very unfortunate that many of the Malay/Muslim political leaders have gone far astray and deviated from the right Islamic path. They spent lavishly beyond their means and resorted to corruption to cover the cost, imitating the evil deed of the devil. They have deviated far away from the right path, to adopt the right measures to develop the country and uplift the position of the poor and needy. They are not God-fearing, that is to enjoin good deeds and to prohibit evils.

NO, NO, NO. Don’t always rush to make police reports or hire lawyers to sue. There is no need for it. It shows weakness and an inability to do rebuttals. This is spoken in a political arena.

Imagine the damage if these UMNO guys are in full control of Putrajaya. We, the people, should join the past Presidents and the Bar Council to give our fullest support for an independent judiciary and for the firmness and the professionalism these brave judges have displayed.

Save this country from BN, PN, Pas & all those leaders who use race, religion to champion their narrative. Our prosperous country has been drained dry & now our people are suffering.

Political pap like the Rukun Negara, once quoted by all and sundry as governing principles has been discarded and in its place, the interest of criminal “leaders” reigns supreme.

Malays’ understanding is very simple. A whopping RM42 million had been stolen – 3 courts and 9 senior judges concurred Najib did it. Not a single judge had ruled otherwise. The head of all three courts who convicted him are ethnic Malay. The Chief Justice is a Malay. The Attorney General is a Malay. And the best part is Najib was sent to the prison by his own UMNO-Malay government.
