How Can There Be Credible Polls Reforms When Both The EC Chair And Deputy Chair Remains? (en/cn)

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 09:57 PM PDT

Press Statement By DAP Secretary-General And MP For Bagan Lim Guan Eng In Kuala Lumpur On 10.6.2013.

If Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S Subramaniam can contradict Election Commission(EC) Chair Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof's claims that the EC consulted the Health Ministry regarding the safety of the indelible ink, how can there be credible polls reforms when both the EC Chair and Deputy Chair remains? And yet Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Mohd Yusof still insists that he has consulted with the Health Ministry regarding the safety of indelible ink used at the May 5 general election contrary to Dr S Subramaniam’s statement that the Health Ministry had issued no such report.

Tan Sri Abdul Aziz had previously told the Straits Times of Singpore in a May 12 interview that the Health Ministry had advised against adding more than one percent of silver nitrate to the ink, which would have made the ink last. The EC was indirectly blaming the Health Ministry for refusing to allow an extra 1% of silver nitrate and causing EC to waste RM6 million on purchasing the indelible ink fiasco that could be easily washed off.

Tan Sri Abdul Aziz should immediately resign as EC Chair if he cannot produce the letter from the Health Ministry that stated putting more than one percent of silver nitrate in the ink could damage the kidney and cause cancer, a letter that the Health Minister himself denied ever issuing. If the Health Ministry cannot even trust the EC, how can the people trust the EC to be clean, fair and free in conducting elections?

The fiasco of the indelible ink that could be easily washed off has destroyed what little integrity EC has left, plunging its credibility to its lowest depths in history. Never before has the EC adopted BN's political attacks against the opposition and had even threatened to sue PR leaders.

Did PR Lose The Perak State Government Cleanly And Fairly?
Other alleged EC misdeeds include switching election results between BN and PR as exposed by DAP Perak publicity chief Wong Kah Woh for the Jelapang state seat in Perak. DAP’s Borang 14 for Polling Stream 3 at SRJK (C) Lahat shows DAP candidate Teh Hock Ke having obtained 330 votes, compared with 137 votes for the BN. However, the result for this stream announced by the EC was in the reverse, with the BN said to have received 330 votes against 137 for the DAP. The EC backed this with a different Borang 14.

Wong said the EC’s version of the result, which has been gazetted, is highly unlikely because the DAP’s parliamentary candidate Batu Gajah that covered Jelapang state seat, V. Sivakumar garnered 373 votes in that stream, compared with BN’s 141 votes. In the other four streams at the SRJK (C) Lahat polling station, Teh garnered between 58 and 67 percent of the popular votes and won Jelapang with more than 70% of the votes.

What is shocking is Wong's suspicion that one of the Borang 14 is likely to have been forged, because the handwriting for the figures in the copies of the form with the DAP and the EC are similar, but the signatures of the DAP, BN and Parti Sosialis Malaysia (PSM) counting agents and the presiding officer are different on the two forms.

DAP won Jelapang with 16,921 votes, a majority of 12,266 votes compared with the 4,655 votes received by BN and 2,568 votes won by PSM. Although the discrepancy will not cost DAP the Jelapang seat, Wong correctly said it would have made a difference in marginal seats such as Lubok Merbau, Manjoi and Pasir Panjang. Indeed this can change the final result as to which party forms the Perak state government as BN won Perak by 3 seats with 31-28 seats.

Both EC Chair And Deputy Chair Must Leave
EC deputy chairperson Wan Ahmad Wan Omar had told a Bar Council forum yesterday that the EC had fulfilled their objective of running an election and any complaints are merely “technicalities” which do not warrant resignations. How can these complaints be mere "technicalities", especially when PR won 51% of the popular vote and yet can not form the next government in Putrajaya whilst BN that won only 47% of the popular vote can win 60% of the parliamentary seats?

There can be no politically and morally legitimate government when BN won the smallest 112 parliamentary seats that comprise a mere 20% of the voters to form the Federal government. What type of legitimacy is enjoyed by a government that only enjoys 47% popular support as compared to 51% by the opposition? The average parliamentary constituency size of a BN seat is 46,510 voters compared to PR's 77,655 voters.

The striking contrast of PR's seat of Kapar with 160,000 voters with BN Putrajaya of around 16,000 voters highlights the unfair delineation of constituencies by EC that is weighted heavily in BN's favour. As Wan Ahmad was EC Secretary during the last constituency delineation exercise in 2002, how can the rakyat expect natural justice? For this reason, the resignations of both the EC Chair and Deputy Chair is a necessary condition, towards removing one important obstacle towards a fair and clean re-delineation of constituencies that fully respects the principle of "one-person, one-vote, one-value".

民主行动党秘书长兼峇眼区国会议员林冠英于2013年6月10日在吉隆坡发表声明:

如果拿督斯里苏巴玛廉可以与选委员会主席丹斯里阿都阿兹莫哈末的说法不一致,那就是选委会在采用不褐色墨水前咨询过卫生部关于其安全性,若选委会主席与副主席继续留任,哪里会有真正的选委会改革?

如果拿督斯里苏巴玛廉可以与选委员会主席丹斯里阿都阿兹莫哈末的说法不一致,那就是选委会在采用不褐色墨水前咨询过卫生部关于其安全性,若选委会主席与副主席继续留任,哪里会有真正的选委会改革?而丹斯里阿都阿兹还坚持他曾咨询过卫生部关于5月5日全国大选不褪色墨水的使用安全,而苏巴玛廉却说卫生部从来没有发表相关报告。

丹斯里阿都阿兹之前于5月12日告诉新加坡《海峡时报》 说,卫生部曾反对增加1%的硝酸银(点墨维持久一点)。选委会间接责怪卫生部不允许使用硝酸银而导致选委会浪费600令吉的不褪色墨水采购费,并引发墨水一洗即脱的丑闻。

丹斯里阿都阿兹如果无法拿出卫生部关于增加1%硝酸银将导致肾脏损伤、致癌的信件,他应该马上辞去选委会主席, 就连卫生部长本身也已经否认该部曾发出有关信件。如果连卫生部不相信选委会,那么人民如何相信选委会能够干净、公平及自由的举行选举?

不褪色墨水一洗即脱的丑闻已经毁掉了选委会仅剩的一点廉正度,也让它的声望降到有史以来最低点。从来没有选委会像国阵那样对在野党进行政治攻击,也从来没有选委会威胁要提控民联领袖。

民联是不是在干净、公平的情况下输掉霹雳州政府?

我们还有许多选委会做错事的证据,包括对调国阵和民联的选举成绩,霹雳州行动党宣传主任黄家和所揭发的九洞州议席。在拿乞华小投票站三号票箱。行动党的表格14显示行动党候选人郑福基获得330张票,国阵获得137张票。但是,选委会宣布这个票箱时却将成绩对调,说国阵获得330张票,而行动党获得137张票,而选委会以另一张表格14来支持他们的做法。

黄家和说选委会已经在宪报上公布的版本看来不可能,因为九洞州选区所处的华都牙也国会选区行动党候选人西华古玛在上述票箱获得373张选票,而国阵只获得141张。在拿乞华小另外四个票箱,郑福基都获得58%至67%的多数票,以70%得票率赢得九洞。

最惊人的是,黄家和怀疑其中一张表格14已经被造假,因为在行动党及选委会各自所持的表格字体一样,但是行动党、国阵及社会主义党计票员及现场官员的签名却不一样。

行动党在九洞赢得1万6921张选票,多数票为1万2266张,国阵获得4655张,而社会主义党获得2568张。虽然上述差别并没有导致行动党失去议席,但是这种偷龙转凤的做法在一些票数微差的议席如:鲁博马坡、曼锐、巴锡班尖却能影响输赢。这甚至可以改变最后谁执政霹雳州政府的结果,因为国阵正好以3议席(31:28)赢得州政权。

选委会主席及副主席必须离职

选委会副主席旺阿末旺奥玛昨天在律师公会论坛上说,选委会已经完成他们主办选举的任务,任何投诉都只是"技术问题"不至于他们需要辞职。当民联赢得51%的多数票,却不能在布城组织政府,而国阵只赢得47%多数票却获得60%的国会议席,这些投诉怎么可能是"技术问题"?

当国阵赢得史上最少的112个国会议席(20%的选民)来成立联邦政府时,这不会是政治上、伦理上合法的政府。当执政党只有47%的支持率,而在野党却有51%的支持率,这是什么合法政府?国阵所赢得的国会选区选民人数平均为4万6510人,而民联选区的选民人数平均为7万7655人。

最明显的差距是民联加埔国会选区选民达16万人,而国阵布城国会选区选民只有1万6000人,突显了选区划分多么不公平,严重地偏向国阵 。由于旺阿末在2002年选区重新划分时任职选委会秘书,人民还能相信这当中有自然公义吗?因此,选委会正副主席必须辞职,我们才能在追求干净、公平选区划分的努力上,除去绊脚石,实现"一人、一票、一价"原则 。

Government Coercing Voters to Back BN With Selective Aid

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 07:33 PM PDT

BY SYED JAYMAL ZAHIID (TMI)

KUALA LUMPUR, June 10 — The ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) coalition is coercing voters to support the government by punishing opposition backers through selective aid, Pakatan Rakyat leaders have said.

The federal opposition blasted Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin for his promise to provide greater assistance only to those who backed BN in Election 2013, saying the move was aimed at "victimising" voters in a bid to sustain its political dominance.

"It is not surprising as this has always been the way of BN which is to victimise those who vote against them and help those who back them," PAS central working committee member Khalid Samad told The Malaysian Insider.

"That is how they ensure they stay in power. By victimising the voters. They will maintain an economic condition so that the Malays will continue to back them," the Shah Alam MP added.

On Saturday, Muhyiddin was quoted as saying that the BN administration will direct "greater assistance" towards the communities that backed it during the general election in a move that gave out mixed signals over the Najib administration's seriousness in pushing for national reconciliation.

The clear message is that the majority of the Malays, Indians, Bumiputeras, Orang Asli, Siamese community as well as those in Sabah and Sarawak still support the BN.

"We will continue to give them greater assistance; that is what we will do," the deputy prime minister was quoted as saying by state news agency Bernama at a BN thanksgiving function in Kundang Ulu, Johor, in an apparent continuation of the vilification of Chinese voters following the general election.

The DAP's Rasah lawmaker Anthony Loke said it was obvious that Muhyiddin's statement was aimed towards the Chinese community of which majority of them had voted for the opposition in the last national polls.

"This shows that he wants to penalise the Chinese community.

Loke said Muhyiddin's statement shows that he wants to penalise the Chinese community.
"What he said goes to show that he is not a deputy prime minister for all Malaysians but only for BN. After all, he is famous for making that statement that he is 'Malay first, Malaysian second'," Loke told The Malaysian Insider.

The DAP central executive committee member cited analysis that pointed to an increased shift in Malay support towards the opposition and demanded to know why was the government only punishing the Chinese.

"It's a very stupid statement and very irresponsible. He is saying something completely different from Najib who is pushing for reconciliation and so on and yet he is making all these divisive statements," he said.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak had spoken of a need to reconcile the country immediately after the polls outcome was announced, but it was not a theme that was universally accepted in the BN coalition.

Right-wing elements in Umno along with party mouthpiece Utusan Malaysia have sought to frame the May 5 polls as a Chinese-versus-Malay vote, after Najib's reference to a so-called "Chinese tsunami" following the election.

Utusan Malaysia had front-paged an incendiary headline titled "Apa lagi Cina mahu?" (What more do the Chinese want?) while tabloid Kosmo! took the blame game further with an even more overt title, "Pengundi Cina bersikap talam dua muka (Chinese voters are two-faced)", a day after polling.

However, analysts instead pointed to a growing urban-rural divide as well as the ascendancy of a "Bangsa Malaysia" who did not vote along racial lines, as the main factors for the outcome.

Khalid said Muhyiddin's statement reveals BN's true nature and said that until this government is voted out, discrimination against anyone who opposes it will continue.

"That is why we are here. To oppose them. After so long in power they still do not understand that the money belongs to the rakyat. Of course not everyone will vote for them but when they are elected into power, they must serve everyone," he said.

Despite the burgeoning of right wing elements within BN, several leaders have rejected the attempt to pin the blame for the ruling coalition's worst-ever electoral showing solely on the Chinese community.

BN won 133 seats in the 222-seat federal Parliament, seven fewer than in the 2008 polls.

An apparent crackdown against opposition politicians and activists for sedition, however, has cast doubt over the government's commitment to reconciliation.

PKR: Zahid spent over RM200k while campaigning

Posted: 10 Jun 2013 01:04 AM PDT

Malaysiakini

Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi violated the Election Offences Act 1954 by spending more than the ceiling sum of RM200,000 in his campaigning during the 13th general election, PKR has alleged.

“There is a video circulating (on the Internet) that shows Zahid saying that he gave RM100 and a 5kg bag of rice to 24,000 people in Bagan Datoh,” PKR director of strategy Rafizi Ramli said today.

At a press conference at party headquarters in Petaling Jaya, Rafizi said according to his calculation, the expenses for that one act of largess alone would be more than RM200,000.

This, he claimed, was a violation of the rules for candidates in the Election Offences Act.

Based on this, PKR will file an election petition this week.

Rafizi said he would reveal the related evidence linked to this petition – and others – at a press conference on Wednesday.

PKR has signalled its intention to file 18 more petitions, while Pakatan will file 35 in all.

Malaysiakini has not been able to locate the video or to contact the minister or his aides for comment on this PKR allegation.

[KENYATAAN MEDIA] #Black505 Padang Merbok Pada 22 Jun 2013, Tidak Ada Alasan DBKL Tidak Memberi Kebenaran

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 10:29 PM PDT

Pakatan Rakyat telah memberikan notis untuk mengadakan perhimpunan aman #black505 di Padang Merbok yang mulanya dijadualkan pada 15 Jun 2013 dalam tempoh 10 hari seperti yang dituntut oleh pihak berkuasa. Penganjur juga menerima nasihat kepimpinan Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) untuk tidak mengadakannya di Dataran Merdeka, walaupun itu adalah tempat perhimpunan yang dituntut oleh banyak pihak.

Saya mengambil kira rayuan pihak-pihak yang telah pun mempunyai perancangan program di Padang Merbok pada 15 Jun 2013. Setelah berbincang dengan IPD Dang Wangi, penganjur membuat keputusan untuk menukar tarikh perhimpunan aman #black505 Padang Merbok ke minggu yang seterusnya iaitu pada 22 Jun 2013 bermula jam 12 tengahari.

Permohonan kepada DBKL untuk menggunakan Padang Merbok pada 22 Jun 2013 telah pun dibuat pada hari Jumaat 7 Jun 2013, iaitu 2 hari selepas permohonan pertama dibuat. DBKL juga telah mengesahkan bahawa semasa permohonan dibuat pada 7 Jun 2013, tidak ada mana-mana pihak yang membuat permohonan mengadakan acara di Padang Merbok pada 22 Jun 2013.

Oleh itu, tidak ada lagi alasan untuk DBKL dan Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan bermain politik dengan melengah-lengahkan permohonan ini. Saya ingin mengingatkan Menteri Wilayah Persekutuan bahawa majoriti besar rakyat di Wilayah Persekutuan bersama-sama Pakatan Rakyat dan beliau perlulah menghormati hasrat rakyat Wilayah Persekutuan yang mahu berhimpun secara aman di Padang Merbok yang merupakan padang milik rakyat.

Notis kepada IPD Dang Wangi akan dibuat esok dalam tempoh 10 hari seperti yang dituntut oleh PDRM.

Ini adalah ketetapan akhir dan tidak akan ada sebarang perubahan selepas ini tidak kira apa alasan yang diberikan oleh DBKL.

Perhimpunan aman #black505 akan diadakan pada tarikh 22 Jun 2013 (Sabtu) bermula jam 12 tengahari di Padang Merbok. Rakyat Malaysia yang cintakan kebenaran dan menolak penipuan pilihanraya diseru turun beramai-ramai untuk menuntut 3 perkara:

1.       Keseluruhan ahli SPR meletakkan jawatan serta-merta dan ahli-ahli SPR yang baru akan dilantik secara bersama dengan Pakatan Rakyat dan kumpulan civil society yang mewakili rakyat;

2.      Pilihanraya semula di 30 kawasan Parlimen bila mana dibuktikan berlaku penyelewengan;

3.      Hentikan sebarang usaha untuk meminda undang-undang pilihanraya atau persempadanan semula sehinggalah ahli-ahli SPR baru yang adil dilantik secara bersama seperti tuntutan (1)

Malaysia’s ‘Berlin Wall’

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 09:07 PM PDT

Malaysiakini

Dataran Merdeka is symbolic. It is our metaphorical Berlin Wall and its significance cannot be exaggerated.

Umno Baru leaders and the police have refused to allow the use of Dataran Merdeka for the 'Black 505' rally in Kuala Lumpur on June 15.

NONEEtched in the memories of older Malaysians is the lowering of the Union Jack and the raising of the Malayan flag at midnight, at the Selangor Club padang as Dataran Merdeka was then known. The younger generation would have learnt about its historical role.

When the 154.5km Berlin Wall – a concrete structure built by the East Germans to divide the east from the west – came down, the city of Berlin was reunited, communist rule in eastern Europe fell and the process of re-unification of East and West Germany started.

If the opposition coalition were to hold this rally at Dataran Merdeka, it would score a great moral victory, just as Bersih did. The violence during the Bersih 3.0 rally was perpetrated by the police. A weak regime is one which does not know how to use arguments and discussion as weapons, but resorts to violence.

If the place that is connected with Merdeka and the Tunku were to become the focal point for the 'Black 505' rally, attention would be focused on the reasons for the rally, and Umno-Baru would be forever linked with cheating in elections. Umno-Baru is desperate to deny the opposition the publicity.

A common tactic of Umno-Baru is to give the rally organisers the runaround. Even when Umno-Baru lies, it fails to do it with a concerted effort. When the opposition coalition applied to use Padang Merbok as an alternative venue, the Dang Wangi district police chief Zainuddin Ahmad claimed that another event was scheduled to take place there.

Police chief Khalid Abu Bakar claimed that the opposition's application was incomplete, while Federal Territories Minister Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor claimed that indoor venues and closed spaces, like stadiums, would be more suitable.

He said: "…..But to me, Padang Merbok is an open space… when it comes to open spaces, we will not give (our permission) because we know the law and abide by it."

If Tengku Adnan claims to be well-versed with the law and would happily abide by it, what explanations can he give for alleged widespread electoral fraud and cheating during GE13?

How does he explain the money politics which is synonymous with his party Umno-Baru? Can he account for the increasing acts of police brutality which suggest that police personnel are breaking the law and getting away with murder?

Don't expect reform

Some of you may disagree with street protests but only the naïve would think that GE14 could be the solution. The electoral boundaries are being skewed in Umno Baru's favour by the Election Commission (EC), even as you read this. Umno Baru and the EC will never negotiate or reform.

How much longer have the marginalised Indians to suffer? How many more election promises will their self-appointed leaders be taken in by? This minority government promised that they would implement many reforms before GE13 if elected; but after the election, they say the implementation will take five years.

azlanIn GE11, the EC made a last minute claim that the indelible ink would prevent Muslims from performing their prayers.

In GE12, the EC claimed that there was a national security scare and certain parties were planning to sabotage the elections by marking the fingers of people before they could vote. It was claimed that several people had been arrested while trying to smuggle election ink into Malaysia.

In GE13, the EC diluted the ink, saying it could be harmful.

In GE14, the EC will be just as creative.

It is ironic that, in 2010, Najib Abdul Razak had warned delegates at the BN convention, held in Wisma MCA, that the opposition coalition was attempting to take over Putrajaya and that the federal government had to be protected from the greedy and the power crazy.

He said: "BN is a responsible coalition. You can place your hopes and trust in us. The people can trust us to do not only what is right, but what is in their best interests."

Around the world, repressive regimes have been toppled by non-violent civil resistance movements – Chile, Poland, South Africa, the Philippines. Armed resistance is not the answer, as military training and the supply of weapons is expensive. Nor should we expect foreign countries to intervene; they have to protect their own interests.

Only we can help ourselves. This sham Malaysian democracy can expect more marches and more resistance from the rakyat.

If Najib continues to exploit the rakyat, it is possible that even the police and security personnel will shift their allegiance and loyalty, as happened in Egypt.

In the current economic climate, the rakyat is forced to tighten its belt further. Graduates are finding it more difficult to get jobs, unlike politicians' children who are given choice appointments or who become directors of companies with a paid-up capital of RM2, which receive multi-million ringgit government contracts.

Young adults cannot afford to live away from home. Skilled workers are refused employment, as foreign workers, both legal and illegal, are cheaper.

Symbols of oppression

As living conditions become more intolerable, NGOs, human rights activists, students, opposition politicians, religious organisations and the rakyat will unite as one movement against oppression.

Najib can arrest a few such as Adam Adli, Haris Ibrahim, Tian Chua, Safwan Anang or Tamrin Ghafar, but more leaders will emerge.

Thirty-nine years ago, the education minister who gagged our academia and students with the Universities and University Colleges Act was Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Today, Najib will attempt to do the same.

In the Tunisian uprising, Mohammed Bouazizi immolated himself, when the police stopped him from making a living as a street pedlar to feed his family. He became the symbol of the Jasmine revolution.

In the recent protests in Turkey, 'The Woman in Red' whose face was sprayed with tear-gas has become a global symbol of police brutality and oppression. The demonstrations, which began as a protest against the redevelopment of a park, have escalated into public fury against the creeping Islamicisation and the increasing authoritarian rule of the government.

In Malaysia, we are not short of symbols of oppression. Two National Union of Bank Employee (Nube) officials, vice-president Abdul Jamil Jalaludeen from Pulau Tikus, Penang and general treasurer Chen Ka Fatt, from Ipoh Garden in Ipoh, were sacked from Maybank because they made a stand against its treatment of workers.

In the late 1970s, as Minister for Trade and Industry, Mahathir clipped the power of unions.

Today, Najib honours Abdul Wahid Omar, who was CEO of Maybank, by making him a minister in the PM's Department.

Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi may order a crackdown on activists and opposition leaders. In doing so, he will only unleash a more determined rakyat who will retaliate with more marches, boycotts and strikes.

Najib may try to prevent the rakyat and the 'Black 505′ rally from entering Dataran Merdeka, but he cannot curb our resolve to fight oppression. Perhaps, we should occupy Dataran Merdeka, our metaphorical Berlin Wall.

Najib may surround Dataran Merdeka with razor wire, but he cannot imprison our minds.

Government coercing voters to back BN with selective aid, says Pakatan

Utusan Malaysia had front-paged an incendiary headline titled "Apa lagi Cina mahu?" (What more do the Chinese want?) while tabloid Kosmo! took the blame game further with an even more overt title, "Pengundi Cina bersikap talam dua muka (Chinese voters are two-faced)", a day after polling.

However, analysts instead pointed to a growing urban-rural divide as well as the ascendancy of a "Bangsa Malaysia" who did not vote along racial lines, as the main factors for the outcome.

Khalid said Muhyiddin's statement reveals BN's true nature and said that until this government is voted out, discrimination against anyone who opposes it will continue.

"That is why we are here. To oppose them. After so long in power they still do not understand that the money belongs to the rakyat. Of course not everyone will vote for them but when they are elected into power, they must serve everyone," he said.

Despite the burgeoning of right wing elements within BN, several leaders have rejected the attempt to pin the blame for the ruling coalition's worst-ever electoral showing solely on the Chinese community.

BN won 133 seats in the 222-seat federal Parliament, seven fewer than in the 2008 polls.

An apparent crackdown against opposition politicians and activists for sedition, however, has cast doubt over the government's commitment to reconciliation.

In Halim Saad suit, Pakatan suggests a Mahathir legacy of graft and cronyism

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 05:09 AM PDT

The Malaysian Insider

Tycoon Tan Sri Halim Saad's massive legal suit against the government underlines the widespread corruption that typifies the Mahathir-era where the line between business and politics was blurred to help the ruling Umno amass an empire of wealth, said Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders.

Opposition leaders believe the suit, set to be one of the biggest corporate battles in the country, will also test the Najib administration's seriousness in tackling high-level corruption as they expect the legal battle to expose more gruesome details on Umno's dirty corporate ties.

"This is yet another legacy of Tun Dr Mahathir (Mohamad)," DAP lawmaker Liew Chin Tong told The Malaysian Insider, referring to the longest-serving former prime minister whose administration had spearheaded a Bumiputra corporate advancement project that helped create a pool of Malay tycoons like Halim.

"When it comes to corruption and cronyism, we know Umno is corrupt and filled with cronies. What we want to know now is, who is getting all that money. That's what the people want to know," he added.

Halim has mounted a massive legal challenge against the government to demand full settlement of an over RM2 billion deal that forced him to relinquish his controlling stake in Renong Bhd more than a decade ago.

According to digital business magazine, The Edge Review, Halim, once the sole corporate nominee of the ruling Umno, was offered RM1.3 billion in cash and property as well as control of a private waste management company, roughly valued at RM2 billion, in exchange for his disposal of Renong in the 2001 agreement.

Citing people familiar with Halim's suit, the magazine reported that the business magnate had since only received RM165 million despite giving up his business empire and is seeking the remainder.

The move comes as a shock since Halim's tenure in Renong was marred by questionable decisions. It is widely perceived that he had failed to rein in Renong's growing debts, which allegedly forced the government to take over his stake in the conglomerate through state investment arm, Khazanah Nasional Bhd.

Liew said the Halim saga was among the many failures of Dr Mahathir's Bumiputra corporate advancement project, citing other controversies like the legal battle between national carrier MAS and its former chief executive officer Tan Sri Tajuddin Ramli and the Forex scandal in 1983.

Opposition leaders believe the suit will test the Najib administration's commitment to tackling high-level corruption. — file pic"Unfortunately, since Mahathir retired, we are still dealing with these issues after 10 years. I feel it is time the suggestion to set up a Royal Commission of Inquiry be executed to investigate all financial legacies related to Mahathir," he said.

The Edge Review had said that the suit would expose for the first time the "behind-the-scenes dealings in several multibillion dollar transactions and contract awards that shaped corporate Malaysia between the mid-1980s and the early part of this decade".

It also quoted industry observers as saying that Halim's suit will provide insights into how Umno created a political moneymaking machine around Renong and its associated concern, United Engineers Malaysia Bhd (UEM).

"It will offer Halim's account of how he ceased to be a business nominee of Umno and also provide a personal confession of the gruelling years the businessman went through as he battled to keep debt-laden Renong afloat," the magazine wrote.

PKR's newly elected Kelana Jaya MP Wong Chen echoed the view and said the suit will help shed light on Umno's corporate links and how it helped the ruling Malay party amass massive wealth to sustain its dominance.

"This case will expose a system where an Umno sole corporate nominee helped shape and protect the party's empire.

"Furthermore, it would also highlight the dubious relation between Umno and businesses. What Halim Saad said is true, the nominal system had encouraged the culture of opaqueness in business and politics," he told The Malaysian Insider.

Wong, who is in charge of opposition party PKR's investment portfolio, also noted how the case would show if the government of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak would act on those involved in the fiasco.

"It will test if they are as transparent and accountable as they say they are".

The opposition claimed that those behind the costly policy failures of the Mahathir administration have not only escape punishment but are compensated heftily in some cases.

The most notable case is the out-of-court settlement between MAS and Tajuddin, another Bumiputra corporate posterboy of the Mahathir era.

Halim was taken by former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin under his wing to become Umno's sole corporate nominee in 1984. — file picThe move has been described as an attempt by the government to cover up details found in Tajudin's affidavit in support of his counter-claim where the embattled tycoon purportedly revealed much of the inner workings behind the purchase of MAS.

Opposition leaders noted that the same could happen with the Halim suit as the tycoon's exposes on the Umno-Renong link could force the government to concede and seek a settlement outside of court.

"I hope this case will not imitate the Tajuddin Ramli case where it was settled out of court. Until today, the people are asking what happened and how much of taxpayers' money was paid to him," PAS chief economist Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad told The Malaysian Insider.

According to The Edge Review, Halim had tried to pressure the government into paying a full settlement from the Renong deal but in 2010, Dr Mahathir told him the agreement would not be honoured.

Businessmen familiar with the situation say that Dr Mahathir told Halim that he had been informed by (Tan Sri) Nor Mohamed (Yakcop) that the assets taken over by Khazanah belonged to Umno," it added.

The Edge Review said Halim then met with Nor Mohamed, then a minister in the Prime Minister's Department in charge of the Economic Planning Unit, who confirmed Dr Mahathir's words.

According to the magazine and StarBiz, Nor Mohamed, the Malaysian government and state-owned strategic investment fund Khazanah Nasional Bhd have been named as defendants in the multibillion-ringgit suit that was filed in April this year.

In the statement of claim sighted by StarBiz, Halim is alleging that the parties had signed the 2001 and/or another 2003 agreement with him with "an intent to deceive him or induce him to enter into both agreements".

Unfortunately, since Mahathir retired, we are still dealing with these issues… I feel it is time the suggestion to set up a RCI be executed to investigate all financial legacies related to Mahathir. — Liew Chin Tong

Dzulkefly said the only way to unravel the fiasco was to conduct a forensic audit on the suit. I think what the people want to see is if their money is not freely gambled," he said.

The former Kuala Selangor lawmaker also called on Putrajaya to expose all corporate transaction data involved in the Renong deal.

"Is the money belonging to the government-linked company Umno's money? And not the people's?" He said.

Halim, who was in 1984 taken by former Finance Minister Tun Daim Zainuddin under his wing to become Umno's sole corporate nominee, had built Renong and UEM into Malaysia's largest conglomerate, with ventures in the banking, construction, telecommunications, real-estate development and tolled-roads industries.

The Asian financial crisis of 1997 led to the fall in Renong's share prices and according to The Edge Review, exposed the conglomerate's poor cash flow and large debt burdens.

Mustafa Ali: MP PAS akan hadir sidang Parlimen

Posted: 10 Jun 2013 03:35 AM PDT

1 Syaaban 1434 H. [MOD] -


PAS menolak gesaan beberapa NGO yang mahu ahli parlimen Pakatan Rakyat memulaukan sidang Parlimen yang akan bermula pada 24 Jun ini.

Setiausaha agung parti itu Datuk Mustafa Ali berkata, MP PAS akan menghadiri sidang Parlimen seperti biasa, kecuali taklimat Parlimen, esok.

Mustafa dalam satu laporan Sinar Harian berkata, tindakan itu selari dengan keputusan mesyuarat pimpinan tertinggi Pakatan Rakyat sebelum ini.

pas mustafa ali 070413 01
"Dalam mesyuarat pimpinan tertinggi Pakatan baru-baru ini, kita telah putuskan untuk tidak menghadiri taklimat Parlimen. Pendirian PAS adalah berdasarkan keputusan ini.

"Semua MP PAS akan tetap menghadiri sidang Dewan Rakyat seperti biasa. Tidak mungkin kita akan boikot Parlimen, hanya taklimat saja kita tidak pergi," katanya seperti dipetik dalam laporan itu.

Katanya lagi, sesi taklimat itu hanya untuk memperkenalkan muka baru dan bukannya sebahagian daripada sidang Dewan Rakyat.

Kumpulan NGO yang meragui ketelusan pilihan raya umum hari ini sekali lagi menggesa MP Pakatan Rakyat memulaukan majlis angkat sumpah sebagai anggota Dewan Rakyat pada 24 Jun itu.

Jurucakapnya Badrul Hisham Shaharin berkata, wakil rakyat terbabit masih boleh mengangkat sumpah pada hari lain.

Kumpulan itu pada 6 Jun lalu mengumumkan akan memulakan kempen pemulauan majlis angkat sumpah dan menyerahkan memorandum kepada pemimpin politik berkaitan supaya mengambil langkah itu pada minggu itu juga.

(Dr Dzul, Saifudin dan Teresa...tiga Pegawai perhubungan Politik Selangor)

KUALA LUMPUR: Dengan pemilihan AJK PAS Pusat, Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad sebagai Pegawai Perhubungan Politik Pejabat Menteri Besar Selangor dari PAS, lengkaplah sudah perlantikan mereka.

Sebelum ini, Setiausaha Agung PKR, Datuk Saifudin Nasution Ismail dilantik sebagai Pegawai Perhubungan Politik Pejabat MB Selangor diikuti dengan DAP menamakan Teresa Kok sebagai wakil parti itu.


Namun begitu, timbul persoalan 'apa kerja utama mereka' kerana ia adalah perlantikan pertama pernah dibuat sebegini di Selangor.



Dr Dzulkefly ketika mengulas perlantikan ini berkata, beliau mengucapkan terima kasih di atas kepercayaan parti melantik beliau.



"Namun sehingga kini, apa tugas, saya belum pasti," kata beliau.



Beliau juga bimbang kalau-kalau berlaku pertindihan tugas dan tanggungjawab antara ketiga-tiga mereka memandang semuanya bekerja untuk kepentingan Pakatan Rakyat.



"Mungkin saya lebih senang kalau setiap kami diberikan tugas yang spesifik bidangnya," kata Dzulkefly yang kini adalah Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Pusat Penyelidikan PAS.



Dalam pilihan raya lalu, Saifudin kalah di parlimen Kulim Bandar Baharu, Dr Dzulkefly pula kalah di Parlimen Kuala Selangor manakala Teresa Kok menang di parlimen Seputeh.



Sebelum ini, Teresa adalah exco kanan kerajaan negeri Selangor.

1 Syaaban 1434 H. [MOD] -

Seorang pemimpin Angkatan Muda Keadilan (AMK) Chan Ming Kai berkata perhimpunan 'Black 505' yang dirancang untuk diadakan di Perlis pada malam ini akan diteruskan walau polis memberi amaran untuk mengambil tindakan ke atas penganjur.

Kemesraan suami istri bawa bahagia.

Posted: 09 Jun 2013 08:27 PM PDT

1 Syaaban 1434 H. [MOD] -
Ust. Ahmad Baei Jaafar

Kebahagian rumah tangga menjadi idaman semua pasangan yang berkahwin. Bukan sahaja mereka idamkan semua itu pada awal perkahwinan tetapi sampai ke akhir hayat malah sampai ke dalam syurga.

Tetapi kadang-kadang idaman itu tidak tercapai kerana hanya beberapa punca yang kecil.

Mungkin kerana suami mengharapkan sesuatu yang tidak difahami oleh isteri dan isteri pula mengharapkan sesuatu yang tidak difahami oleh suami.

Suka dijelaskan di sini, suami dan isteri masing-masing mempunyai rahsia yang mereka terpaksa simpan kerana tidak mampu untuk menjelaskannya secara lisan. Di sinilah titik mula masalah sebenar.

Dalam hal ini pasangan itu perlu memahami rahsia diri pasangannya secara pandangan mata hati dan merasainya melalui gerak hati. Dengan cara itu sahaja mereka dalam lakukan yang terbaik untuk keluarga mereka.

Tetapi kalau sesama mereka ada hijab yang menutup hati kecil mereka, pasti mereka tidak nampak apa yang dihajati pasangannya. Perlu diingat, untuk membuka hijab itu mereka perlulah bertolak ansur dan cuba menurunkan ego masing-masing terutamanya isteri.

Sebenarnya seseorang suami ada menyimpan beberapa rahsia yang malu untuk dijelaskan kepada isterinya kerana takut ditertawakan isterinya. Antara rahsia itu ialah suami mahu "bermanja" dengan isteri apatah lagi pada usia tuanya. Selain itu suami mahu dia dibelai dan hormati isteri sepanjang masa.

Supaya lebih jelas suka dipaparkan contoh terbaik dan yang pasti rujukannya ialah Rasulullah. Baginda adalah panduan kita ke arah memacu bahteri keluarga bahagia.

Perhatikan dua perkara yang sering dilakukan baginda.

1. Berbaring dipangkuan isteri
Daripada Aisyah r.a, beliau berkata: "Nabi s.a.w. biasa meletakkan kepalanya di pangkuanku walaupun aku sedang haid, kemudian beliau membaca Al-Quran" (Hadis Riwayat Abdurrazaq).

Kalau para isteri sedar, suami anda sesekali menyandar dan menyentuh bahu anda. Malah kadang-kadang dia berbaring di atas paha anda. Itulah tandanya dia hendak bermanja.

Tetapi kadang-kadang isteri cuba mengelak dan bangun.

Sebenarnya suami pada ketika itu akan berasa kecewa, tetapi dia tidak berani untuk melahirkan rasa kecewa itu.

Suami memang hendak bermanja dengan isteri, bukan sahaja pada waktu malam tetapi juga pada waktu berehat di siang hari.

Bayangkan kalau rasulullah mahu bermanja dengan isterinya, dan isterinya pula reda dengan sikap baginda, mengapakah isteri-isteri pada hari ini tidak boleh melakukan begitu juga.

Percayalah kalau suami boleh bermanja dengan suami, dan isteri sanggup melayan kehendak suami itu, pasti akan tercantum rasa sayang yang berkekalan. Pastinya, isteri yang memahami sikap manja suami itu akan diberi pahala oleh Allah.

2. Memanggil dengan panggilan mesra

Rasulullah s.a.w biasa memanggil Aisyah dengan beberapa nama panggilan yang disukainya seperti Aisy dan Umairah yang memberi maksud pipi merah bak delima.

Dalam budaya masyarakat kita, suami memanggil isterinya dengan namanya yang manja atau "yang" bagi maksud sayang.

Ada juga yang menyebut "bib" yang bermaksud habibi, kekasihku dan banyak lagi. Sebaliknya isteri akan memanggil suami dengan panggilan "abang" atau "bang" yang juga dengan nada manja.

Panggilan sebeginilah yang akan membuahkan rasa sayang sentiasa berputik di hati suami. Namun begitu terdapat juga panggilan manja kerana sudah biasa dengan panggilan itu.

Lahirnya panggilan itu bukan kerana ikhlas dari hati lagi.
Dalam masyarakat Melayu, panggilan manja itu lazimnya hanya berlaku pada awal perkahwinan, tetapi semakin pudar apabila sudah beransur tua. Malah mereka malu untuk memanggil dengan panggilan manja, kononnya malu kepada anak dan cucu. Inilah keadaan yang tidak kena kepada masyarakat kita, malah sikap mereka jauh daripada kehendak Rasulullah.

Seharusnya sebagaimana suami memanggil isteri dengan kasih sayang itulah yang sepatutnya disambut oleh isteri. Panggilan mersa pada setiap kali memulakan ucapan dan kata-kata merupakan sentuhan yang boleh membangkitkan rasa sayang antara mereka.

Jadi, binalah kemesraan dengan saling manja bermanja dan sebagainya. Semoga kita beroleh bahagia. Wallahu aklam.
