Sandiwara Anwar

Tidak ramai mengetahui sebelum Anwar campur tangan untuk menyelesaikan konflik tersebut, beliau terlebih dahulu menyemak rekod-rekod kesemua Adun PKR dan secara kebetulan mendapati bekas Adun Kajang Lee Chin Cheh bakal berhadapan tindakan undang-undang tidak lama lagi (kesalahan di bawah Akta Pilihanraya).

Maka pada Anwar, “it’s about time!” dan menggunakan kesempatan yang ada untuk bertindak! Justeru, Lee Chin Cheh diminta melepaskan jawatannya sebagai Adun berkuatkuasa serta merta. Beliau tidak mahu sekiranya Lee Chin Cheh dijatuhi hukuman, kerusi DUN Kajang akan dieksploitasi BN sepenuhnya malah cengkaman PKR di Selangor akan terungkai apabila rakan PR terutama PAS memberi tekanan kepada PKR sendiri ..

Muslihat Anwar

Tindakan bagi menggantikan Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim sebagai ‘jalan keluar’ konflik melibatkan MB Selangor itu dengan Azmin Ali.

 sebenarnya bertujuan untuk “check & balance” pentadbiran Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim yang sering berdepan kritikan ahli PKR sendiri  berhubung beberapa tindakan diambil seperti isu air, isu Langat 2, kenaikan cukai taksiran, rampasan kitab bible dan sebagainya.

” mencatur strategi menggunakan ‘jalan belakang’ ekoran kedegilan Tan Sri Khalid berkrompomi hatta dengan Datuk Seri Anwar sekalipun.

” dilihat sebagai  platform terbaik untuk beliau terlibat secara langsung dengan urusan kerajaan negeri mencakupi kewangan yang menjadi punca konflik melibatkan MB Selangor dengan Pengerusi PKR Negeri tersebut.

Selangor diketahui lubuk wang bagi mana-mana parti yang memerintah…justeru Anwar perlu berada dalam kerajaan negeri untuk memastikan dana kepada beliau dan PKR tidak putus.

 Anwar punyai maklumat tentang cadangan kerajaan untuk membeli SYABAS dengan nilai sekitar RM6 bilion..Perkembangan ini menarik minat Anwar untuk turut sama memperolehi hasil yang lumayan sekiranya perjanjian itu dimuktamadkan nanti.

Oleh itu, segala sandiwara berkaitan peletakan jawatan Lee Chin Cheh, pemilihan Anwar sebagai calon DUN Kajang, serta tawaran “Pelan Perdamaian Nasional” @ Rekonsiliasi Nasional kepada Dato’ Seri Najib hanyalah  strategi seorang pemimpin licik untuk melarikan dari dari pelbagai isu  – kes perbicaraan mahkamah berkaitan samannya kpd Dato Nalla, isu anaknya Nurul Izzah dan isu berkaitan penggunaan Kalimah Allah yang semakin membarah di kalangan umat Islam .

 Lagipun Anwar sedar tajaan kepadanya semakin berkurangan setelah janji beliau untuk menawan PUTRAJAYA pada Pilihanraya Umum Ke13 lalu gagal.

Mungkin percaturan PKR kali ini akan memakan diri, namun tidak adil menyalahkan PKR semata-mata apabila ada pihak lain yang sama-sama mahukan semua ini berlaku. Siapa lagi kalau bukan DAP…

PRK KAJANG, ANWAR HANYA BONEKA DAP!

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

From      A.Kadir Jasin.

I think there’s something that Rafizi is not saying. He quoted the example of Kelantan. But I think he is actually thinking more of Perak in 2009.

The Pas-led but DAP-controlled PR government of Perak fell when two PKR and one DAP ADUNs left their parties to become independents.

The possibility of that happening in Selangor among the disgruntled PKR ADUNs cannot be dismissed if the factional war between Mohd Azmin Ali and Abdul Khalid Ibrahim continues.

Members of Azmin’s camp are more likely to abandon ship as their camp is seen as the loser. Anwar is caught in between. He is close to Azmin, who is the PKR deputy president and a long time confidant, but Abdul Khalid is said to be better accepted by the DAP and PAS.

So Anwar’s entry into the Selangor DUN has more to do with keeping the PKR ADUNs from abandoning ship than warding off a coup bid by the Federal Government or the BN.

The BN with only 12 out of 56 DUN seats is unlikely to be able to topple the state government. Out of the 44 PR members, 15 each are from the DAP and PAS, and 14 from PKR.

Rafizi and other PKR leaders should stop making excuses for forcing the Kajang by-election. If they want Anwar as the new Menteri Besar of Selangor just say so. If they want to solve the party’s internal problem via a by-election, so be it. There’s no need for them to beat around the senduduk (straits rhododendron) bush.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Zaid Ibrahim.. Kajang – It’s not about Ambition

Kajang is not about Anwar’s or Azmin Ali’s ambitions. It’s about the potential failure of Pakatan Rakyat as a political alliance in the state.

The problem started in 2008 when Anwar—jubilant that Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim the corporate millionaire had agreed to join PKR—promised that Khalid would be Menteri Besar if the Pakatan captured Selangor. Anwar had previously promised Azmin the same position and credit is due to Azmin for accepting the change gracefully.

So, when Khalid became Menteri Besar, he did not take kindly to the decisions and directives made by Anwar or the party as a whole. In fact, he mostly ignored them. In my brief sojourn at PKR, I saw clearly that Khalid was “uncontrollable” from the political point of view.

Anwar’s penchant for avoiding difficult decisions and procrastinating on important issues is the real reason for the present trouble in Selangor.

Selangor had to find legitimate ways to channel funding to all political parties—including the Barisan Nasional—in proportion to the votes obtained at the general election. Khalid openly rebuffed this idea and Anwar didn’t have the stomach to contradict him.

Today, he wants to remove Khalid from the post but Khalid understands state politics quite well. After the 13th general election, PKR wanted Azmin appointed as Menteri Besar but the Pakatan could not agree to it.

So it is desperation with Khalid that has led Anwar to engineer the coming by-election. This move, however, will not be publicly understood unless people know about the Pakatan’s internal difficulties in Selangor.

Unfortunately, we have come to the point where Selangor Pakatan Rakyat members must be prepared to break ranks, if necessary, in order to forge real political unity.

Neither Anwar nor the Pakatan Rakyat can survive without that unity

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 Some people are saying that ultimately PKR deputy president Azmin Ali will be made the Selangor menteri besar.

A Penang PKR source told Oriental Daily News that PKR de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim would first take over as MB upon winning the by-election and after  the party elections in April.

Assuming the MB’s post is a stepping stone for Anwar in his pursuit to become the  prime minister, the source said, stressing that if Anwar did not make the Kajang move, he would be deserted during the party polls and see his big dreams fall apart.

As Azmin has gone through fire and water with Anwar all these years, the source said Anwar would back Azmin as the future helmsman of Selangor.

“Forcing a by-election for Anwar to contest is a tactic of killing two birds with one stone.

Selangor MB Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim is expected to relinquish his post after the party polls whereas Azmin, who enjoys ground support, would logically be lifted to a higher position with the backing of the election results, the daily reported.

“Then Anwar will become MB and make Azmin his deputy. He might also even make Azmin the acting MB,” the Penang PKR source was quoted as saying.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

In the permutations above (and there are a few more), one must not rule out BN’s manoeuvring to steal the State from the people and PR without needing a new Statewide election. This was cunningly done in Perak to oust Nizar. Currently, not only are Selangorians angry, HRH’s patience is no doubt being tested and this does not portend a good outcome for the future of PR.

Edmund Boon Tai Soon, Loyarburok.com

Where it was the Barisan Nasional (BN) in Nizar’s case on the Perak Constitution, the numerically weakest party PKR is now embarking on a venture to test the limits of the Laws of the Constitution of Selangor, or better known as the Selangor Constitution. Unlike Nizar’s case, the ‘threat’ to the current MB Khalid — so to speak — is not from the outside of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) but from within PKR. Like in Nizar however, it does not appear that an overwhelming majority of reasonable, right-thinking voters wish to see the current MB replaced by another.

Lessons in DEmocracy- .

 Congratulations to Anwar.
For exposing the dark side of UMNO. As Milton Friedman said: The battle for freedom must be won over and over again.
The idea of universal democracy- rests on 2 pillars. The right to platform and the right to recall. Both are at play in the coming Kajang by-election. The kajang people are in a historic position in our democratic history. Never before have we been conscious of a game changing process.
Right of platforms.
The right of platform means the people have the right to know what the winners of an election will do after they have been elected. This right of platform belongs to the people as well as the political parties. Right of platform to political parties means they are free to present policies, ideas and specific programs for the betterment of the people.
. In the coming Kajang election, the freedom to offer platforms has exposed that UMNO is nothing, but a pedlar of pornography.
That’s how UMNO runs the country.
Now, the regressive programs of UMNO measure the moral health of UMNO and put everyone on notice about UMNO’s racial, religious and national sentiments.
What can we say about that? UMNO and its president are morally bankrupt.
The worth of this by-election to the Kajang people.
The people of Kajang have the opportunity to strip UMNO naked and expose its regressive programmes.
The opportunity to combat and destroy UMNO’s regressive platforms through dialogue and rebuttal.
We engage the people in dialogues instead of using the mentally-challenged method of making police reports or invoking the fear of another May 13.
And the best form of rebuttal is by voting against UMNO and BN in a great way by making them lose their deposit.
Let them eat Kangkung.
UMNO fears Anwar Ibrahim.
That’s the truth which explains the morbidity and maniacal responses from UMNO and its underlings.
With Anwar leading Selangor in whatever position the PKR coalition eventually agrees, we will see a stronger political leadership
with matching political skills to combat the evil machinations of UMNO.
Let’s face it; Khalid Ibrahim is a sound manager for Selangor.  what he lacks are political skills-  needed to consolidate power in Selangor.
A weak political leadership can lead to a BN takeover and whatever reserves that Selangor has accumulated can be frittered away in an instance.
Consolidation of political power is the key for Selangor. The issue of whether Anwar can become MB or not,
should not distract us from the bigger picture-
Selangor is the lynchpin state pointing to Putrajaya’s heart. Let’s give them a heart attack.
It shall be money worth spending to allow the people to exercise the right to recall.
The modern equivalent to the Malays’ right to repudiate the Original Covenant between Demang Lebar Daun and Seri Teri Buana.
It’s the modern equivalent to the withdrawal of the mandate of heaven.
It provides voters the opportunity to re-evaluate the platform which BN promised at the onset of GE13.
The Kajang people can use this by-election to reaffirm their vigorous objection to what BN has done after GE13-
which is reneged on almost all its platform.
Punish them severely by sending a strong message that, eventually the rakyat has the right to recall,
i.e. the right to censure the ruling government, without waiting for the periodic 5 years.
That message can serve to educate the whole of the country.
So, in this respect I congratulate Anwar Ibrahim and PKR for enhancing the meaning of universal democracy.
This is a great opportunity for the people of Kajang to also teach Najib and UMNO the meaning of the entirety rule.
According to this principle, once having won the right to govern, the legal winner governs the entire nation not just the section of that nation that voted for them .

Tony Pua, told a forum last night that Malaysians could forget about ever toppling the BN government if the majority of Kajang voters did not cast their ballots in favour of Anwar.

“If Anwar loses the by-election, Pakatan is finished. Forget about ‘Ubah’, forget about throwing out BN. It’s a crucial election that cannot be taken lightly,” Pua told a large audience at the Kajang Move forum.

“BN is going to use all its ammunition to attack Anwar. They know if he falls, that’s the end of Anwar and Pakatan,” he warned, adding that this was perhaps the reason for the long delay of the by-election.

Pua was adamant his declaration was not as a threat, but a statement of fact.

Anwar interview-Road to Kajang

If I become MB,” he said, raising his voice on ‘if’, “it will be until I become Prime Minister.” He smiled.

 Anwar painted a gentler picture of friendship and politics. Khalid, he said, is a good friend but Selangor needs “political clout”.

“ The circumstances and the dictate of the time requires that Selangor be driven,” Anwar said.

“I cannot accept Selangor being held every time to ransom. Every other week you have this problem, these attacks.We seem to be quite helpless, either they (the BN) use state apparatus or some NGO and not much can be done … we will not allow this to happen. This requires political leadership.”

‘It’s not about the money’

But Khalid  has solid credentials. Under his stewardship, Selangor reserves now stand at an astounding RM3 billion, a mountain of cash that he jealously guards.

Khalid has refused to play politics with the funds, either through politically-expedient projects camouflaged as state initiatives or through feeding the party.

Critics of the ‘Kajang Move’ claim that this is actually the main reason behind the manoeuvre. They say it is just a bid by PKR to break into the coffers. Anwar shrugged, as if this is nothing new, and without missing a beat lamented how “unfair” such accusations are.

He argued that there is no point talking about reserves with issues like poverty and public housing still a problem in the state.

“The mantle of economic management is not good reserves but good management of the economy. If you spend money, say the reserves, for public housing and free education for Universiti Selangor students, then is it wasting public money?”

Solution to Bible seizure

Anwar took the long and winding route in responding to a question as to why he chose to finally intervene in Selangor. At the end of this, it was not difficult to conclude that one of his grouses was the way the state has handled the Bible seizure issue.

“I would say: ‘Guarantee that they won’t be distributed to Muslims, don’t send them to schools and only use them for Christians. I want it in writing.’ And then I (would) send them back,” he said.

Comparing himself to Anwar, Khalid last week had said that, unlike him, Anwar can face impossible demands (he uses Hindraf’s demands as an example) but at the end of the meeting, those making the demands will be part of Anwar’s fan club. It is this trait that Anwar seems to be banking on to deal with rising religious tensions over the use of ‘Allah’ by non-Muslims.

If he heads the Selangor government, Anwar said, he could use state resources to build the confidence of Muslims so they would not feel threatened by purported threats to their faith. He said he has met Muslims who are “virtually fearful” of mass Christianisation and this means the issue is “beyond political”.

“No, I don’t believe Islam is threatened or (that) we (would) allow it to happen. I would say you have all the resources at your disposal to strengthen the position of Islam, to use the mosque to educate, to launch your dakwah (preaching) programmes.But you should never allow people to be held to ransom, to instil this sort of fear among the non-Muslims. This is something that is just pathetic after half a century of independence.”

“So I think we have to explain.  Don’t underestimate or overestimate your influence or power without engaging with the people.”

he said, Kajang was chosen among several seats because its demographics reflect that of the state and doing it now means there will still be time for Anwar and Pakatan to prove their chops in Selangor before the next general election.

“I cannot go on with this (and the feud within PKR Selangor and attacks by BN) on a protracted basis.  It was a very difficult decision, not very popular . But the decision has to be made for the larger interest and I think, at least for a start, we have caught BN off guard. Nobody anticipated it…”

As for Rafizi, it is only fair to allow him to explain in his own words..

Quote:  IN my 37 years,except for 97 in Kg Rawa,  , i have never encountered a group of people of one faith  demonstrating in front of a place of worship of another faith, never happened in Malaysia.!

If this statement is not alarming enough to jolt  a bit those still in slumber , it should. It shows how extreme and dire the state of affairs has become. And worst, it seems to be of design, intentionally manipulated for some ultimate diabolical intent .

Because if the worst case scenario of UMNO have a sinister design of considering using the “emergency declaration” to forcibly take over, that seems far fetched and implausible. Lets hope for our sakes, it really is that, because it ultimately affects our very way of lives and the status quo as we know it and have gotten so comfortable with.

……………………………………………………………………..

The Kajang Move is a strategic move for  the bigger interest of the nation..Dr. Dzukefli Ahmad endorsing the move from PAS.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Finally, this is a political strategy to help beat the corrupt and oppressive BN coalition, and consign them eventually to the trash-heap of history. That is not against the interest of the rakyat; on the contrary, that is the best possible thing for the rakyat..
