MCA is trobling BN again.

MCA is trobling BN again.

MCA is trobling BN again.

Posted: 08 Mar 2010 11:51 AM PST

MCA is back in quandary. In another twisting event Dr Chua Soi Lek the Deputy President has resigned followed by seven CC members and that makes up enough number for a fresh Party election and the date has already being decided; that is on the 28th March.

Dr Chua Soi Lek seems to be the most flirtatious among all the leaders in MCA and have been back and fore from one faction to the other and now he has taken decision to resign to give way for fresh party election just 2 days before the Annual General Meeting.

His decision is obviously to estrange his former ally, the President Ong Tee Kiat from the rest of the party members and in particular 21 other CC members. His idea was not to let Ong Tee Kiat to make up the AGM and circumvent the estrange President from addressing the delegate.

However the AGM went through as the President managed to get enough quorums to go through the business of the AGM, and according to the Secretary General the AGM was in line with the Constitution of the party.

603 of the 2378 delegates turned up and were more than sufficient number to hold the AGM as planned. The constitution provides a minimum of 200 delegates to go on with the AGM.

The act of relinquishing elected position by 22 CC members were obviously an act to disrupt the AGM and it was crudely a planned sequence purely to facilitate the process of overthrowing the President Ong Tee Kiat.

This time around Dr Chua Soi Lek made another 180 degrees turn and conspires with the V/P Liow Tiong Lai, the Youth Head, Wee Ka Siong, and the Wanita Chief Chiew Mei Fun and four other V/Ps including Dr Ng Yen Yen who only resigned on Saturday.

The Wanita and the Youth Wings were given instructions by their respective leaders to cancel the wings AGM but the Wanita Wing went on with the AGM without their leader Chiew Mei Fun as there were enough quorum and that was an obvious one up for the incumbent President Ong Tee Kiat (OTK).

There are some salient and prominent points that OTK pointed out and that would be the sure his campaign points in his bid to retain the Presidency, but time and space do not allow me to elaborate those points in this short article.

The highly emotional charged meeting was not officiated by the BN Chairman Dato Seri Najib Razak which was very unprecedented.

Some were in the opinion that the BN Chairman was playing a game of wait and see which was not unpredictable for Najib, as he is lacking magnanimity and always indecisive. He would always be with the winner and the buttered side of the bread.

This was the first time that any component party of BN went through its General Assembly in orphanage without the Chairman of the component officiating its annual Assembly like normally practiced.

OTK in his address to the delegates gave a very honest speech with emotional flavor.

Firstly he seeks for an apology from the delegates for dragging in the issue of PKFZ in the open, which became the real and actual raison d'être for the chaotic consequence to MCA.

PKFZ issue has been linked closely to some former and current MCA leaders and Ministers and if this was not addressed with transparency, MCA and BN are the final recipient of the blames and subsequently bring MCA and BN to a fall.

In the process of bringing back the damaged idea about MCA OTK said that he had stirred the hornet's nests as there were many politicians with very personal interest in the party are feeling the jittery.

OTK said he was sorry and apologetic for it as he was just tying to stop the uninterrupted failing image of MCA because of PKFZ issue in the last General Elections has brought in catastrophe especially in Selangor.

The floor gave OTK standing ovation with loads of praises and a show of sympathy and compassions for what OTK is facing in the massive politicking in MCA currently.

The delegates inscribed and adorned the virtues and sacrifices of their President and extended full support for Tee Kiat in the forth coming Party Elections scheduled to be held on the 28th of March.

A delegate from Selangor Cindy Leong sobbed seeing her adored leader OTK visibly have lost a lot of pounds and inches and Cindy saw it because of the problems OTK faces in MCA.

Who is going to take on who is not yet discernible but it is detectable and logical to believe the Dr Chua Soi Lek would be taking on OTK as the President and Liow Tiong lai is going for the second spot.

It is expected to be heavy exchanges of blows and punches from both side of the divide and no one is certain what is going to be like in MCA and BN as a whole. But there is one thing for certain that no one is going to gain everything neither does anyone is going to lose everything.

The cracks within MCA would add on to the already injured BN and it is going be a game of everybody with individual preferences and we can witness all the intrigues and the art of politics on stage play.

What we are scared of now is the possibility of every one getting injured licking their own wounds all alone by themselves.

Some times I just can't help believing that the nation has to start anew, and let the experienced and the knowledgeable personality does it, as the political facets of the day is irremediable.

Let us think about it.

Once upon a time there lived a king. The king had a beautiful daughter, the PRINCESS. 


But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt.


No matter what;








Anything she touched would melt.


Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her.


The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter?


He consulted his wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king,


'If your daughter touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured.'


The king was overjoyed and came up with a plan.


The next day, he held a competition. Any man that could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her and inherit the king's wealth.




The first brought a sword of the finest steel.


But alas, when the princess touched it, it melted.


The prince went away sadly .


The second prince brought diamonds.


He thought diamonds are the hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess touched them, they melted.


He too was sent away disappointed.


The third prince approached. He told the princess,


'Put your hand in my pocket and feel what is in there.'


The princess did as she was told, though she turned red .


She felt something hard. She held it in her hand.


And it did not melt!!!


The king was overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed!


And the third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever after.


Question: What was in the prince's pants?
M&M's of course.


They melt in your mouth, not in your hand.


What were you thinking?? DIRTY MIND :)

Do we still need Jambatan Bengkok?

Posted: 08 Mar 2010 09:49 AM PST

The Sultan of Johore wants the new bridge linking Malaysia and Singapore to be built (read h e r e). How now? It was canceled during Pak Lah's administration on grounds that it was too costly and the government didnt have much money then.

Mooted by former premier Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, the so-called 'Jambatan Bengkok' or crooked bridge was suppose to replace the ageing and congested Causeway.

The idea was also to ensure a clear passage for Selat Tebrau waterway, thus enabling local fishermen to benefit from a cleaner and heathier environment. The Straits too may cater small fishing and leisure boats and yachts.

Singapore, then under premier Goh Chok Tong refused to build its portion of the bridge, citing it as not economical and would only benefit Malaysia. However, the Republic did not object to Malaysia erecting in on its side.

And now that Sultan Ibrahim ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar has good and solid reasons for it, will Prime Minister Najib willing to re-open the file?

ToL Kita AnTaRa YanGTeRMuRaH DiDuNia!!

ToL Kita AnTaRa YanGTeRMuRaH DiDuNia!!


Satu, siapa yang tergelak baca tajuk post,atau terdetik dalam kepala dia "Kepala hotak ngko!" maknanya dia memahami apa itu Tol dan keadaan semasa.Jadi anda boleh memilih untuk tidak membaca.

Dua, sesiapa yang mengangguk atau terdetik dalam hatinya "Hmmm..betul tuh",maknanya ada yang dia tidak tahu.Golongan ini adalah sasaran penulisan saya selepas ini dan jika anda adalah salah seorang daripadanya,anda diharap meneruskan pembacaan. :)
Soalan pertama,betul atau tidak?Jawapannya betul.Tol kita memang antara yang termurah di dunia.

Tetapi apa sebenarnya saudara yang terselindung disebalik itu?

Lebuhraya di Thailand:Panjangnya 1000batu dan tiada tol

Secara peribadi,saya sendiri tidak begitu jelas tentang konsep tol di Malaysia ini di ambil dari mana.Jika ikutkan,antara yang mengamalkan konsep tol ialah Thailand.Tetapi ia hanya dibuat di Bangkok,itu pun jika kita pilih untuk lalu ikut jalan atas.Bukan seperti Malaysia,hampir setiap negeri ada.

Di Amerika Syarikat,mengikut salah seorang teman saya yang pernah menuntut di sana,dia pernah memandu dari Santa Monica di California (di pantai barat US) hingga ke satu bandar di Florida (pantai timur US). 4 hari 4 malam tak sampai lagi.jalan punya la cantik,tapi satu sen pun tak kena tol.Dia juga pernah memandu dari San Diego di Selatan California ke Seattle di Utara Washington State.3 hari 3 malam tak sampai lagi.Dan tiada tol.

Jesteru,negara mana sebenarnya yang mengaplikasikan tol ini sebanyak Malaysia?Di Thailand,Sami banyak tapi tol setempat sahaja.Tetapi di Malaysia ni sami sorang je.Tu pun tiap-tiap tahun umum naik tol.

Satu perkara yang sangat menghairankan.Jika diikutkan fakta,jumlah kutipan tol bagi 19 lebuhraya seluruh Malaysia setakat 2006 adalah RM23.66bilion.Tetapi kos membina lebuhraya tersebut tidak sampai pun pada jumlah tersebut.Ini bermakna setakat 2006,keuntungan sudah dicapai.Paling mengejutkan,kos pembinaan PLUS adalah RM5.9 b,tetapi pungutan tol di situ pada 2005 dan 2006 sahaja sudah menjangkau RM3.76b. Jesteru,kenapa tol masih dikenakan?

Maintainance?Jika penyelenggaraan yang kita jawab,soalnya di PLUS sahaja,kos penyelenggaraan adalah RM27.83j sebulan atau RM333.96j setahun.Secara logik,kos keseluruhan penyelenggaraan setahun tidak mungkin melebihi RM1.5b setahun.Jumlah ini boleh ditampung melalui pembayaran road tax dan sedikit bantuan kerajaan.Jika soal mematuhi perjanjian yang dibuat anda timbulkan,logiknya mengapa tidak cerdik membuat perjanjian yang berat sebelah seperti itu?Di mana kebijaksanaan kerajaan?

Mungkin ramai yang perlu membaca buku Malaysian Political Economic, karya Jomo dan Gomez, Pensyarah dari UM. Anda akan dapat jawapan bukan sahaja terhadap siapa pemilik PLUS dan UEM(Pemilik PLUS), tetapi juga semua syarikat2 di Malaysia. Di situ anda akan tahu betapa hebat dan kayanya ahli2 politik Malaysia.Dan ketika itu anda akan sedar dan akan kata.."Patutlah tol naik punnnn"..

p/s: Tiba2 teringat kata2 Datuk Seri Najib ""Kalau kita tak sanggup tanggung, tidak akan ada lebuh raya bermutu tinggi," .Lebuhraya LPT menerima lebih 150 kemalangan dalam 2 bulan pertama operasinya.Bermutu tinggikah?

Malaysia has no future for kids

Posted: 08 Mar 2010 08:41 AM PST

This excellent article from The Nut Graph clearly illustrate what is happening to your kids' future ... THERE IS NO FUTURE.

Why? Because the UMNO government has decided sakai scholl is the only way forward ... they can't afford to have a generation of thinking Malays, that is too dangerous to their warped Ketuanan Melayu which is only 'Bulul' deep, not even skin deep.

Malaysians, you are fcuked.

Going private

8 Mar 10 : 8.00AM

By Koh Lay Chin

BEGINNING today, The Nut Graph examines the problems that have become entrenched in the national school system. While public schools were reliable and multiracial centres of education for Malaysian children not too long ago, today, parents who can afford it are sending their children to private schools. Those who can't, opt for Chinese vernacular schools. There also seems to be a growing trend towards home schooling.

Do these trends indicate that the public school system is failing us? How did it come to this? And what needs to be done to stem the decline? The Nut Graphattempts to answer these questions in a four-part series.

(Pic by sueanna /

PRIVATE schools used to be the unpopular choice and "last resort" for Malaysian parents, but they may now be leading the pack of education options, educators say. "Ten years ago, parents rarely considered private schools, but now they are shopping around," Sekolah Sri KDU marketing manager Rina Thiagu-Kler says.

This trend seems to indicate a growing disenchantment with national schools, when once upon a time public schools were the natural choice for parents. Just how serious is the problem, and what is the increased interest in private schools telling us?

Significant increases

For certain, the statistics indicate that a significant number of Malaysians seem to be losing faith in Malaysia's public school system.

For instance, there is clearly growing demand for private education. The number of private kindergartens, for example, went up from 263,307 in 2004 to 668,287 in just two years, according to statistics from the Education Ministry's Private Education Department.

Enrolment in international schools, meanwhile, rose from 5,069 students in 2000 to 8,341 the following year.

And within seven years, the number of students enrolled in private primary schools nationwide increased more than 22% from 7,234 students in 2000 to 16,190.

Private education in Malaysia only began to flourish in the early 1990s, and even then the establishment of private schools tended to be concentrated at the pre-school, secondary and post-secondary levels.

Today, the private primary school figures are also ratcheting up, says Sri Kuala Lumpur chief executive officer Hanif Othman Merican. "We have waiting lists for almost every year and form in our school, and there is now a higher demand for parents to place their children in the primary schools first so that they have a better chance of continuing at our secondary school," he tells The Nut Graph.

Push factor

Parents seemed even more interested after recent changes in the education system, such as the reversal of the teaching of Science and Mathematics in English (PPSMI) to Bahasa Malaysia, Sekolah Sri KDU's Rina says. "They were calling right after that announcement was made."

Hanif says the PPSMI ruling was the "straw that broke the camel's back". But many parents were unhappy about the situation in government schools in general and were looking for better options.

They were concerned about principals who were not qualified to head schools, as well as Islamisation, ethnic polarisation and the decline of standards in these schools, he says.

It is not just non-Muslims seeking private education for fear of growing Islamisation. "There are actually a number of Malay [Malaysian] parents who are looking for a secular education, even if they want their children to also go for Islamic classes. But they firmly believe in a secular educational system, and that is what we provide," Hanif says.

One anecdote that surfaced during the interviewing for this feature told of how a private school sacked an ustazah after she demanded that her students cover up during physical education.

Indeed, with growing distrust and suspicion among parents now about public schools because of Islamisation, such an environment within private schools would be a pull factor.

Special needs

There are other reasons. For younger Malay Malaysian parents like Nadiah Tajuddin, national schools were not an option for her son, who was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder at age four, and later dyslexia at age six.

He now goes to Itqan, a private Islamic integrated school which follows a mainly Singaporean syllabus and has English as its medium of instruction. She is very pleased with the school, and intends to send her two younger children there as well.

"I think that the national school system does not cater to kids with learning and behavioural difficulties, and I sincerely believe that Anuar would be labelled as a lazy and problematic kid by teachers or friends who may not know much better.

"I also believe that there the teacher-student ratio in national classrooms is too high for Anuar to thrive in such an environment," she says.

"Bad to the core"

Hanif says many educators acknowledge that the national curriculum is "inherently sound". But the educational system is "bad to the core", resulting in poor teaching, educational standards and racial polarisation.

He notes that racial cliques also exist in private schools, a reflection of Malaysia at large. "And if you get that in a school like ours, what more will it be like in the government schools?" Hanif says.

For him, then, private schools provide a better option than the public education system.

The parents who spoke to The Nut Graph all came from the national education system, and had warm memories about their schools. But times have changed.

Parent Alicia Jackson says she is sad she cannot consider national schools, which are the most affordable, for her son. Cynthia Lim, who sends her 10-year-old to a private school and her eight-year-old to a Chinese-medium school, says she never once considered national schools. "Everything in the national education system is now going backwards," she says.

Tomorrow: Chinese-medium schools to the rescue

Big Big Change Since 308

Posted: 08 Mar 2010 08:34 AM PST

No and Yes? Only Yes lah ...Big Change Lah ... Now we have UMNO II: Perkasa and UMNO says Corruption is glorious!

Our politics is changing

MARCH 8 —Today marks the second anniversary of the "Tsunami" election, or 308 as the Chinese likes to call it.

Has Malaysian politics changed? Are we seeing a deepening of the democratic process in Malaysia?

I have to say "no" to the first and "yes" to the second.

If anything, Malaysian politics has gone backwards.

The rise of nationalist groups such as Perkasa is a reminder to all that Ketuanan Melayu and ethnic sentiments are so deeply engrained in a section of the Malay community that change may not be possible without a major upheaval.

I am often reminded of the observation by a veteran Malay journalist, Ismail Kassim, that there are Malays in this country who would rather "burn" the country than sharing political power with the non-Malays.

The recent attacks on houses of worship and the cow-head incident is a reminder that ethnicity and religions remains the trigger point of Malaysian politics, just as it was in 1957 and prior to 308.

The Perak incident reminds us that a small, vocal section of the Malaysian polity is willing to use extra-constitutional means to remain in power regardless of globalisation- a world has changed but they are not interested.

If anything, the Perak incident shows that a peaceful change of power may not take place under the constitution if the key institutions do not respect the most basic tenet of concept of democracy — a peaceful change of government.

The cancer called politics of race and religious bigotry is spreading, at a much faster rate since 308.

Nowadays you can get a police report lodged against you for simply saying that there is a better way than caning women.

In terms of the democratic process, the change of state governments (including the two most important — Penang and Selangor) is significant and voters can now see that the world has not ended when the opposition takes power.

In fact, it is quite clear to any reasonable person that the Penang and Selangor governments are examples of greater transparency and good governance, when compared to the previous BN administrations.

The cynic will argue that it is because they have not been in power long enough to go to Disneyland but the real lesson is that with a strong UMNO opposition in both states, the state governments of Selangor and Penang are working hard for the people to get re-elected.

If you have a two party system at the federal level, the same will occur; you will have a government that will actually be afraid to abuse power because they know they will be kicked out of power in the next general election.

The amount of political discussion on the internet and other media caused by the upheaval in the past two years can only lead to a more open society.

In a functioning democracy, all views (including the extreme ones) are accepted as legitimate political expression.

Unfortunately as I write this I also know that there are lawyers working on how to police the internet and control the content —for Malaysian users. If you are a foreigner, you can do what you want.

So the bottom line — the biggest change since 308?

Without doubt, the rise and rise of Najib. When he came into office, people were shouting "Mongolia" "C4" and "altantuyaa" (there is even a Wikipedia entry).

There were question marks over submarine deals and issues related to the family.

Today the public is wild over "1Malaysia" and I have not seen anything about Mongolia since the start of the year, and nothing about submarines other than a sub that can't dive. If anything, UMNO's tactic of moving to the middle ground and a direct appeal to the non-Malays (while retaining Malay support by outsourcing Ketuanan Melayu to Perkasa) appears to be working.

The economy is recovering and growth is assured by last year's RM60 billion stimulus plan.

Yes, things are looking up for BN with the passage of time. At the rate BN is moving, I expect a general election to be held later this year.

Here is the crunch; if PR loses big in the coming GE, the dream of a two-party system will be dead for at least another decade.

PR will be politically dead as well as DAP and PAS will retreat to their Chinese and Malay strongholds.

In summary, on this second anniversary of 308, UMNO and BN will be celebrating — it appears that the old Malaysian political maxim is right — Malaysians have short memory and even shorter memory when it comes to politics.

James Chin is a Malaysian academic. The views expressed here are his own and do not reflect the views of institutions he is associated with.

Know what "tak laku" means?

Posted: 08 Mar 2010 08:17 AM PST

Here is a fine example .. Terrorist Zul Noordin has been sacked but refused to surrender the seat because he is trying to sell it to UMNO, which is actually a gift from the Rakyat to PKR.

Hard luck for him ... so far no offer yet from UMNO and I don't think UMNO will want it because what Zul may not know is UMNO doesn't need a terrorist in their camp ie terrorist is a con to UMNO!

That's why UMNO startred UMNO II called Perkasa, why don't they start UMNO as Talibana or something like that if Islamist Taliban is a good fir to their racist agenda?

Zul, you should have a Melayu Hitler like Perempuan Puaka Katak Ali ... wrong move.

Zul Noordin tells Wan Azizah to quit

Zul lashes out against PKR's Wan Azizah, insisting she quit as party chief.


By Clara Chooi

KUALA LUMPUR, March 8 — Sacked PKR MP Zulkifli Noordin has ticked off Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail for asking him to quit the Kulim-Bandar Baharu seat, saying she should instead quit as party president for not defending Islam.

In what appeared to be a personal attack against her, he said said Wan Azizah's failure for "losing" four MPs and an equal number of assemblymen since Election 2008 meant she should also vacate her post.

"She has failed as a president to uphold the principles of PKR, although supposedly pledging to defend Islam and special position of the Islamic institution as enshrined in the Federal Constitution," he said in a statement tonight.

The first-time MP insisted he will not quit the Kulim-Bandar Baharu seat as he mocked Wan Azizah for her pseudo-Islamic ways.

His attack against her came a day after she disclosed that Zulkifli had kept silent when the "Allah" ruling was debated in the Pakatan Rakyat coalition. "Islam is not limited only to her small silk glove á la Michael Jackson!" said Zulkifli, referring to Wan Azizah's penchant for gloves when shaking hands with others.

The eye doctor who wears a head scarf uses the glove as Islam forbids members of the opposite sex from touching anyone apart from family.

"Allowing a non-Islamic panel to try a Muslim on his faith and religion is a great insult to Islam. On this note, I urge Wan Azizah to resign," he said in a statement here today.

Zul has lashed out against Wan Azizah, and criticised her 'pseudo-Islamic' ways.

He also challenged her to stand against him in Kulim-Bandar Bharu in the next general election if she dared to. But she is unable to contest in any polls for five years as she quit the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat in 2008 to make way for her husband PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Zulkifli also expressed sadness that the party president had allowed herself to be used by the "little Pharaohs" in PKR whom he claimed were voices of influence in the party.

"Has she already forgotten how these little Pharaohs had reduced her to tears? And who was there as her shoulder to cry on during those moments but me?" he claimed.

The Independent MP said that he had initially no intention to speak against his former leader but was compelled to do so after she had issued her statement.

"I never wanted to make any statement against her not merely because I have respect for her as my elder by because we have been through many bittersweet memories. She has confided a lot in me on her secrets and the future of her family for the 12 years that I have been with them.

"But she was the one to make a statement against me and I am compelled to reply her. I hope that after this, she will stop her attack on me immediately," he said.

In his statement, Zulkifli also referred to Wan Azizah as "Kak Zah" instead of "Kak Wan" as she is usually referred to, claiming that he was the only one who called her that.

"It is a secret why I call her that and only she knows of this," he said.

In illustrating his claim that he had been a hardcore loyalist to "Kak Zah" and her husband, PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Zulkifli said that he had been the only PKR MP who had been ready to vacate his seat to make way for Anwar.

"Even these little Pharaohs had refused to give way to Anwar to contest but I was ready to make the sacrifice," he said.

The bitter-sounding Zulkifli claimed that Wan Azizah had been the one to tell him not to quit his Kulim-Bandar Bharu seat as he had already "made plenty of sacrifices" for her and her family.

"In the end, she was the one who decided to vacate her Permatang Pauh seat. I respect her decision but she should not question my principles and my sacrifices for her, Anwar and her family," he said.

He listed several reasons why he would not vacate his seat now, despite his recent sacking.

"I was not the one to leave PKR. Instead, I was sacked although until the very last second, I was still holding on to my will to be given the chance to defend myself before an all-Muslim disciplinary board. However, Wan Azizah refused to give me the chance. And now, after making me the victim of these little Pharaohs, she wants me to vacate my seat? Look who's talking?," he said.

Zulkifli also questioned her reason not to ask Anwar to vacate his seat on Sept 2, 1998, when her husband was sacked as the Deputy Prime Minister and fired from Umno.

"Is this not proof that Wan Azizah's statement was for 'poltical expediency', to satisfy the little Pharaohs who surround her?" he said.

Zulkifli also pointed out that when Umno's Bota assemblyman Datuk Nasharudin Hashim left to join PKR last year, no one had asked him to vacate his seat.

"In the Sept 16 conspiracy, Wan Azizah and PKR sent (PKR secretary-general) Saifuddin Nasution and Elizabeth Wong and several others to Taiwan to entice Barisan Nasional MPs to defect to PKR. At the time, I never heard Wan Azizah asking these Barisan MPs to vacate their respective seats on the principles of justice and democracy.

"When it is for personal gain, everything is 'halal'," he said.

Zulkifli also said that it was clear now that with the recent spate of defections, and his sacking, the PKR had lost its majority in Parliament against its partner DAP.

"Following democratic principles, then Anwar should resign from his post as the Opposition Leader. Hence, if he feels he can still hold on to this post, then why can't I do the same as the Kulim-Bandar Bharu MP?" he said.

PKR now has 27 MPs, against DAP's 28 and PAS' 23. Of the PKR's 27, one MP, Sungai Siput's Dr Michael Jeyakumar is from Parti Sosialis Malaysia who had contested on the PKR ticket in March 2008.

"It is clear that Wan Azizah has failed as a president after losing all these representatives. If she truly holds on to the principles of democracy and responsibility, then she should not wait a second longer to resign as the PKR president.

"I believe that if this goes on, not only will the dream to Putrajaya be destroyed, they would also be mapping out their journey to Sungai Buloh (prison) instead," he said.

Muhyiddin ... Cake for all

DPM: New Economic Model is for everyone

Muhyiddin says the NEM is for everyone

By Asrul Hadi Abdulah Sani

SUNGAI BULOH, March 8 — Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today assured Malaysians that the proposed New Economic Model (NEM) is for all, regardless of race, background and religion.

The deputy prime minister stressed that the government will not only consider the interest of the Malays but other communities as well.

The Malaysian Insider reported today that the government has decided to incorporate the proposed NEM into the 10th Malaysia Plan (10MP) in June, as fine-tuning and tweaks will go beyond its initial end of March launch.

It was learnt the delay came after feedback from various quarters prompted the government to rework its ideas and proposals that will turn Malaysia into a high-income nation based on innovation and creativity.

Among those with reservations about the NEM are the Malay Consultative Council (MPM) which yesterday demanded it be based on the 1970s-era New Economic Policy (NEP), and should comply with Article 153 of the Federal Constitution that protect Malay and the special position of Bumiputeras.

Muhyiddin said Malaysians, including the MPM, will be provided with the opportunity to contribute the NEM.

"I want to assure every Malaysians, not just Malays but every Malaysians who have a vested interest in the New Economic Model that the prime minister is very well aware. Every Malaysians but not just Malay Consultative Council wants to have a say and I think they will be given an opportunity to look into what has been proposed by the National Economic Advisory Council," he told reporters after launching 1 Community 1 Corporation programme at Kg Paya Jaras Hilir here.

The National Economic Advisory Council (NEAC) chaired by Tan Sri Amirsham Abdul Aziz is formulating the NEM and has briefed the Cabinet twice on its progress.

"Every Malaysian will have the opportunity to look into what the council proposed and what sort of input that they want to give to the prime minister and the government. So actually as a regard to the Malay interest or the Chinese interest, all are being taken care of but obviously we have to go into details on how those plan could be developed," he added.

Muhyiddin also said that the NEM will be within the "spirit of the constitution."

"At the same time, whatever decision that the government has to make will be constitutional and within the spirit of the constitution. We understand that very well so I don't think any race need to be worry about.

"So there will be enough time for them to given the opportunity to have a look at what the proposed new economic model is all about. They can have a discussion among themselves to give input to the government," he said.

The deputy prime minister also took great pains to say everyone will be consulted.

"I must assure you that all will be consulted. You have the various types of NGOs, not just the Malay Consultative Council. The Chinese and Indians have their own types of NGOs, all the social and economic NGOS have their own ideas but we will take note of them. We will assure that they will be given a fair chance but of course the final decision will rest on the government," he explained.

The government had previously indicated the NEM could have been launched either late 2009 or early 2010. It was understood that Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was due to launch the NEM at the annual Invest Malaysia conference to be held after Bank Negara Malaysia unveils its annual report and economic indicators.

Muhyiddin refused to neither confirm nor deny if the launch of NEM has been delayed till June.

"Well, I think the prime minister will give sufficient time for various groups to submit their views on this. So do I hope the announcement will come from the prime minister himself," he said.

The NEAC briefed the Cabinet for the second time on March 1, days after engaging with several quarters on various issues related to the NEM.

Sources said the Cabinet had "concerns of political implications" for some measures but Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah has said the political risks would not stop the NEM which stressed on removing costly subsidies and improving competitiveness.

It is understood that eliminating policies that still adhere to the spirit of the NEP — even though the NEP no longer exists and was replaced by the National Development Policy in 1990 — has been received with "trepidation by the Cabinet."

Fully aware that this radical shift away from the patronage system so many Bumiputra businessmen are familiar with, the policy makers took pains to pave the way for the NEM's success by engaging with various pressure groups.

Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir yesterday maintained that the NEM would not neglect the Malay community and would have the spirit of the NEP.

MPM has also been campaigning that NEM should not sideline the Malays and remain in line with Article 153 which has 10 parts, with the first part making it incumbent for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to safeguard the special position of the Malays and natives of Sabah and Sarawak.

Perkasa, a member of MPM, is worried that the NEM will increase the monopoly of the country's economy by the Chinese community.

Its director of economic bureau, Dr Zubir Harun, has said that Perkasa is worried that the NEM will have a Chinese agenda and warned that the Chinese community will use the next general election to take over the country.

Ibrahim Ali: Francis Yeoh 'sombong dan bongkak'

Posted: 07 Mar 2010 10:17 PM PST

"I would like to refer to the MCA attack against me published in Malaysiakini, with regards to my statement in Kluang warning the government to be careful in giving big contracts to Chinese corporate figures. "I said that because I was referring to an article about the 1Malaysia New Economic Model Seminar organised by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce Malaysia, published in the NST on Feb 9. "In it, YTL Group managing director Francis Yeoh said: "There should be brutal competition for Malaysian business, (it needs such an) environment to thrive... the country can no longer have a little brother mentality where businesses are protected by the government. It has lured us into an economic model that cannot be sustained." "That is what he said. He is advocating a form of 'brutal competition', where only the strong wins. Which means the government should abolish all forms of assistance, and do away with all subsidies. In my opinion what he said is wrong. It is false. It's a statement that is arrogant, thankless and prideful."
