Umno’s shocking implosion: Onn Jaafar’s vision is the party’s last hope

An Umno rally in Bukit Jalil in 2012

With most people absorbed by the ongoing implosion of the United Malays National Organisation (Umno), a major shift happened a couple of months ago which may have gone largely unnoticed.

For the first time in 63 years, going back even before the independence of Malaya in 1957, the largest party in the country is no longer a race-based party but a multi-ethnic party – the People’s Justice Party (PKR), which now has 50 seats (as of 12 December).

The second largest party, the Democratic Action Party (DAP) with 42 seats, is also multi-ethnic to a certain extent.

This trend is a distinct move towards multi-ethnic parties, including in Sabah and Sarawak. Full article on the Aliran website.

Recently there was a call by the Deputy Minister Of Education, YB Teo Ni Ching on certain quarter to stop emailing her to issue SUPPORT LETTER fork contracts. And she rejected these requests. I want to praise her for doing the right thing. But some quarters are accusing her of scolding them. Obviously this is twisting the fact. I cal upon those who want business, please go through the normal process in bidding or sending your proposals to the ministry. REFRAIN from asking support letter as it is tantamount to gaining favors. Please help not to build another OLD REGIME… Read more »

Since Bersatu started inducing Umno members to leap frog, I begin to have reservations of the survival of PH n have doubt of it’s sincerity to change for the betterment of the country. The same mentality of self interest first is so obvious, except for some mainly from Amanah n Dap. Have things changed as compared to the previous govt? I think we are at status quo momentarily. Tun must reverse n reconsider his many dubious statements n decisions, lest PH will disintegrate n all effort wasted. The frustration n disappointment of the voters will be deeply felt.

PH needs to manage the implosion of Umno. It has ensure no large scale shift to ultrareligious like PAS and at the same time not to provide an easy refuge for criminals and thieves. PH should encourage opportunistic umno leaders to quit and thus cleanse Umno … Let Umno regenerate under KJ or Hisham. Keep people like thamby chik in a suspended mode. Neither yes or no. Once all these … quit and stay in holding pattern, malaysia politics will have a chance to move forward. Encourage them to quit Umno but play coy letting them join PH.

All component parties in Harapan including DAP and PKR are expected to do their part to ensure Harapan government deliver what they promise Malaysians for voting them into power. In order for true reform to happen in Malaysia, Harapan government needs to ensure their leaders are honest, high integrity, focus on uniting the people and country, get rid of corruptions, racism and religion extremism. We expect Harapan to focus their energy to take Malaysia to new height which will bring development, prosperity and unity to Malaysians. As you can see Malaysians after been abused by BN particularly UMNO for more… Read more »

All because of Tongkat Ali? Demise of UMNO would deprive them of TA, as imprinted by UMNO into their feeble, bogeymen fearing minds.

Pacific Research Centre principal adviser Oh Ei Sun said that Umno was so used to being in power that its members are unable to function without the perks and benefits of being part of the ruling coalition.

“They quit because having been used to Umno’s money politics, they simply could not stomach being Opposition MPs without the attendant interests and benefits. By jumping they could at least position themselves to continue with the new government’s gravy train again.

The left should not be happy at the demise of UMNO because the default is PAS holding the Malay centre and we have a religo political contest in Malaysia and everybody loses.

This could be UMNO’s art of war strategy using ex-UMNO members (those leaving en mass) as infiltrating agents: 1) Implode & disperse its agents into PH coalition of parties as they knew PH eagerly want a majority vote in Parliament to push thro’ its plans, policies & fulfilment of its PH Manifesto. 2) Agents to contrive with those in PH not aligned to Anwar to create a split starting with PKR & self-appoint a future PM (Hishamuddin?) within their ranks. 3) Agents to use PM Mahathir as reason for supporting him by mass resignation to gain a favourable (quickie) acceptance… Read more »

Once a parasite, always a parasite. Why contaminate Pakatan Harapan?
A doctor like Mahathir should know very, very well of them like white ants – white + holy on the outside, destructive once left alone in the dark.

Kadir Jasin wrote in his blog:

Saya mohonlah kepada mereka yang ghairah memujuk bekas pemimpin Umno masuk PPBM agar berhati-hati sikit bagi mengelak PPBM daripada menjadi parti murahan dan dalam proses itu melemahkan semangat ahli yang sedia ada, khususnya golongan muda.

Ingatlah, walaupun hari ini mereka keluar Umno dan menyertai atau menyokong kita, dulu mereka adalah musuh politik kita.

Sekarang mereka hendak menyertai kita kerana parti mereka sudah rosak dan kalah. Siapakah yang rosakkan Umno kalau bukan mereka sendiri?

One of the art of war strategies is to create confusion & suspicion within the enemies ie PH. The end result is more than the perceived implosion in UMNO.

Bersatu, you’d better think carefully just b’cos you want the numbers (a flock of 100 ex-UMNO members) dangled by this Rahim? There are more honest Malays to pick from out there in the streets than in this tainted, corrupt party.

In a Malaysia Baru, race + religion, the twins of discriminative excuses should take a back seat. Which also means relook at the National Constitution … Article 153… Article 11 (freedom of religion) was taken to the extremes in fact the opposite of what it originally called for. Respect + tolerance are the keys to make it meaningful without extremism of threats, damage to properties & illegal kidnappings. And Article 12 (rights in respect of education) should be understood & put to practice even if it means abolishing the discriminative Matriculation which is against Article 12 – provides that there… Read more »
