Will allegations of malpractice affect PKR in general election?

PETALING JAYA: When Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said the recent party polls, beset by allegations of irregularities and malpractices, would not affect the party's chances in the next general election, it drew mixed response from political analysts and some party members.
His contention is that the party had done everything possible to rectify flaws in the direct elections system implemented for the first time and therefore, would not affect its performance in the next general election.
However, political observers believe the fiasco that saw the party's Federal Territory chief Datuk Zaid Ibrahim pulling out of the contest for the deputy presidency over alleged voting irregularities before resigning from the party would affect their chances in the next general election.
"For me, I believe to a certain extent, malpractices certainly affect the party, not just trust among the supporters but also the trust of those outside the party, particulary the fence-sitters who are watching this election closely," said political analyst in Universiti Sains Malaysia, Dr Sivamurugan Pandian.
"I believe those who lost in the election will certainly show their anger and frustration, because they lost due to the system," he added.
Dr Sivamurugan also noted that the unofficial party election results showed that they were losing the Indian votes.
"If they do not have Indians being elected for the party vice-president post, the party can even appoint one of its Indian leaders to be a vice-president.
"The party has 33 percent Indian supporters. The results would somehow affect the party. Maybe, the perception among urban voters about the PKR tussle will not change, but not among the rural voters," he said.
He said some quarters within the party itself had began asking whether Anwar was a legitimate leader as they were already questioning why Anwar, who is the Opposition Leader in Parliament, did not contest as party president.
"Anwar now has to focus on how to restore the confidence and trust since the party is facing its biggest challenge since the 2008 General Election. How he is going to pacify those who had lost in the party elections to continue to support the party?" he asked.
Even their own counterpart in the Opposition pact did not turn a blind eye to what was happening in PKR's party election when senior Selangor exco member and DAP leader Teresa Kok openly reminded DAP members in Selangor not to emulate PKR.
However, other political analysts believed that what happened during the PKR election had little impact on the level of support towards the party, depending on when the general election would be called.
"It won't affect PKR. It depends on when Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak is going to call for the general election. It will only affect PKR in the short term but not in the long term," said political analyst in Monash University Prof James Chin.
"The reason is very simple, Malaysians have short memories. Malaysians are easily distracted by political scandal," he said.
However, Chin opined that the party's biggest challenge was whether the party number two or those elected as deputy president had enough political weight to take over the party presidency.
"The question remains...whether, whoever elected as number two has enough political weight to take over as number one, in the event that Anwar goes to jail as a result of his (current) sodomy trial.
"That is the biggest challenge PKR faces, not the number of votes a candidate gets," he reasoned.

100 stage demo at PKR congress venueLatest News

1300 members quit the party.

tunku : how can a man be a pm when he can't even have full grip on his own party? furthermore he is not even the party's president.many had realized now that pkr is not the party that can lead the nation as it is a party that is meant for cronies. only the favourites get the place. pity the indian community, they have been cheated badly by anwar and pkr.they should leave the party at once.there is no point for them to cling on.people can judge the pkr's condition by looking at the attendance of delegates in their on going congress.

State funeral for Chong Eu on Sunday

Public can pay respects in Dewan Sri Pinang from Friday

GEORGE TOWN: Tun Dr Lim Chong Eu's body will lie in state at Dewan Sri Pinang from Friday until Sunday for members of the public to pay their last respects. Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said the funeral Sunday would be held in accordance with federal protocol in cooperation with the state government.
"The family members and funeral committee will be consulted on the matter," said Dr Koh, Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, who paid his last respects at noon Thursday.
The cortege will leave for the Batu Gantung crematorium at noon on Sunday, according to funeral committee member Tan Sri Khoo Kay Por.
"The casket will be placed here (at the house) until 11am tomorrow (Friday) after which the public can pay their last respects at Dewan Sri Pinang from noon," the former Penang Gerakan chairman told newsmen at Dr Lim’s house in Tanjung Bungah here Thursday.
Dr Lim, Gerakan founder, former Penang Chief Minister and a giant in Malaysian politics, died in his house at 9.07pm Wednesday, after a stroke about a month ago. He was 91 and was earlier taken home from Penang Hospital, where he had been warded.
Rapid Penang will provide three free shuttle buses from Tanjung Club, Penang Swinming Club and Sandy Bay to the house for those wishing to attend the wake, starting at 4pm Thursday.
Dr Lim's son, Chien Aun, said the family was still waiting for the state government to provide details of the state funeral for his father.
"We have spent two to three days with him and it is only fair that we allow the state to take over tomorrow to give the public a chance to pay their respects," he said.
Funeral committee member Datuk Oon Choo Khye said a meeting would be held Thursday night for the final arrangements.
"Schools, non-governmental organisations or large groups wishing to pay their last respects at Dewan Sri Pinang must call the hotline (04-8902828) to register, due to the large crowd expected," he said.

tunku : may he rest in peace.i had a very little knowledge about Tun Lim's contributions till i read Tun Mahathir's blog about him. that is why history is very important lesson that every Malaysian should know by deepest condolence to Tun Lim's is indeed a great lost for the nation.

PKR polls problems won’t affect Pakatan’s chances in next GE: Anwar

KUALA LUMPUR: Pakatan Rakyat's chances in the next general election will not be affected by the alleged problems in the recent PKR polls, says Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.
He said he did not think the polls would be a challenge for the coalition as action was already taken to rectify problems in the direct elections system implemented in PKR and they were transparent in their actions.
Anwar was responding to speculation that the Barisan Nasional may use the alleged problems in the PKR polls to gain support from voters in the next general election.
"I think they are just using as many issues as they can (against us)," he told a press conference attended by various Pakatan leaders at the Parliament building Wednesday.
"We have many veteran leaders such as DAP adviser Lim Kit Siang and PAS secretary-general Datuk Mustafa Ali who are so used to such situations. So I think we are ready," Anwar said.
Asked if the distribution of seats was being planned, he said that Pakatan's preparations at the current stage were focused on strengthening its understanding on issues such as those in Sabah and Sarawak.
"We will deal with the seat distribution later," he added.
PAS deputy president Nasharudin Mat Isa said Pakatan was gearing up for the general election starting with a programme with the rakyat in Penang on Dec 18 and the coalition's convention on the next day.
"The programmes that we will be planning are to do with the strengthening of Pakatan as an alternative to the present Government," he said.
He said although several issue have cropped up in the component parties, the coalition will continue to raise issues plaguing the rakyat.

tunku : this is what you call denial syndrome.however this denial syndrome by anwar is good for BN.keep denying anwar but the people knows well how you had failed to control your own can a person who can't even control his party lead the will be disaster.the nation will be in chaos.let show him the boot comes the election.

People No Longer Trust Anwar, Says Dr Mahathir

KEMAMAN, Nov 23 (Bernama) -- Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said the international community are beginning to doubt Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and as such the government should not worry or prevent him from going abroad to prevent the opposition leader from continuing to insult Malaysia.
Furthermore, said the former prime minister, if Anwar were prevented from going abroad, it would create anger against the government, and the government would be facing various allegations.
"We should not prevent him from going abroad. I don't think we should be scared of him. (If) we do that, people will be more angry with us, hate the government. Then, people will say all kinds of things against the government.
"It's all right, I think the other people too no longer trust him, who wants to believe. To me, I don't care. They are not the ones who will be voting, the voters are the people here," he told reporters after visiting the Eastern Pacific Industrial Corporation (Epic) Berhad, at the Kemaman Supply Base, Teluk Kalong Industrial Area, here Tuesday.
Dr Mahathir earlier gave a lecture entitled "Challenges Faced by Muslims Currently" at the Diamond Hall, Kemaman Municipal Council, organised by the Terengganu Development Institute in collaboration with the Terengganu Community Development Agency, attended by almost 5,000 civil servants and members of the community in the area.
Also present were Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said and his wife, Toh Puan Norliza Mahmud and State Legislative Assembly Speaker Datuk Tengku Putera Tengku Awang.
During the debate at the Dewan Rakyat yesterday, several backbenchers suggested that Anwar be barred from going abroad to prevent him from continuing to criticise Malaysia.
Commenting further, Dr Mahathir said the more often Anwar went abroad to criticise his own country, the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor would create a more negative image for himself.
Dr Mahathir said it was time that PKR supporters and members joined Umno because it was proven that the PKR was created merely for the interest of certain individuals instead of championing the interest of the people.
He said the party should be dissolved immediately because its existence would only divide the Malays and Muslims in the country.
"Whoever is responsible for dividing the Muslims should be totally rejected instead of making him a leader to the extent that he would create problems among the Muslims themselves.
"Muslims should unite in a mammoth party (Umno) which had been playing its role all this while to develop the country and champion the cause of the people.
"Surely we don't want a leader who does not know how to serve the people but only wants to become a Prime Minister," he said.
Dr Mahathir also said that the success of the Barisan Nasional in the by-elections in Galas, in Kelantan and Batu Sapi in Sabah recently should not be used as a yardstick for the government to hold a general election in the near future.
He said the Barisan Nasional government still had a lot of time to plan a strategy to win the support of the people so that more people would return to the party.
"Our victory in a particular area cannot be used as a measure (of support). Are the factors for the BN victory in that area the same as in the other areas?
"So, I think the leadership knows about this matter," he said.
On talks that the 13th general election might be held simultaneously with the Sarawak state election next year, Dr Mahathir said the peninsula had a lot of time and there was no need to rush and have the elections at the same time.
"If I were the Prime Minister, I would wait first," he said.
He said Sarawak had no choice because it must hold the state election next year when the mandate for the present government ended.
"But here, we have a choice," he added

tunku : people now knows that anwar is a chameleon which changes its colour that suits its surrounding except for his fool supporters and those who are using him to gain power like dap and pas.Tun Mahathir is right, we should not stop anwar from going abroad , let him bark till he drop dead, no one will listen to him anymore except for his jewish connection.

Sultan Johor Calls For Bridge To Replace Causeway

JOHOR BAHARU, Nov 22 (Bernama) -- Sultan Ibrahim of Johor today called for a new bridge to replace the causeway to Singapore.
Speaking at the investiture ceremony to mark his 52nd birthday here, he said the bridge would be convenient for people travelling to Singapore and back and encourage tourists from the neighbouring country.
"I appreciate that the government is caring and constantly striving to tackle problems facing the people. However, there is one wish of the people of Johor that has yet to be fulfilled, and that is for a bridge to replace the causeway," he said at Istana Besar (the main palace).
Replacing the causeway would enable water at the strait to flow unhindered and at the same time improve the environment, he added.
Present at the ceremony were his consort, Raja Zarith Sofiah Sultan Idris Shah, Tunku Mahkota Ismail, Tunku Temenggong Idris Iskandar and President of the Johor Royal Council Johor Tunku Osman Tunku Temenggong Ahmad.
Also at the ceremony were Mentri Besar Datuk Abdul Ghani Othman and his wife, Datin Prof Jamilah Ariffin, state executive councillors and assemblymen and senior government officials.
The Sultan urged the people to live in a spirit of give and take and moderation, and to respect one another without regard to race in line with the johor government's motto "Muafakat Itu Berkat (Consensus Is a Blessing)."
He said that community leaders should strive to unite the people and emphasise the common good rather than individual or political interests.
"In Johor, the people, regardless of whether they are Malays, Indians or Chinese, are all citizens of my state. The rights and interests of everyone will be protected. So do not rake up the past that might cause dissatisfaction and arouse suspicion," he said.
The Sultan advised the people to seize the opportunities resulting from rapid development in the state, including jobs being offered in the Iskandar Malaysia development region.
He also announced the establishment of Yayasan Sultan Ibrahim which will give scholarships to poor students and medical and other assistance to senior citizens and the disabled.
He said the foundation would be funded by the royal allowance that he received.
The Sultan conferred the titles "Duli Yang Maha Mulia" on Raja Zarith Sofiah and "Yang Amat Mulia Enche Besar" on his mother, Hajah Khalsom Abdullah.
He also conferred on Hajah Kalsom "Darjah Kerabat Pangkat Pertama", the highest state award, and "Pangkat Pertama Datuk Seri Setia Sultan Ismail Johor" on Tunku Temenggong Ismail.

tunku : this is the second time Sultan Ibrahim had requested the government to build the bridge to replace the causeway.if it was not because of the sleepy head pak lah, the bridge had replaced the causeway by now.he is to be blamed for this.najib should start the project again without any delays.follow the original plan, we do not need the concern from singapore.we build it own our side.come on najib, fulfilled the wishes of the johoreans and its Sultan.

PKR Jenapala’s group protests Anwar’s special relationship with Azmin

PETALING JAYA: Former PKR deputy secretary-general P. Jenapala’s second protest rally at the party’s headquarters saw 300 of his supporters rallying against the “special relationship” between party adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and vice-president Mohamed Azmin Ali.
Coming in 12 busses, Jenapala’s supporters from Selangor started gathering at 3:30pm, holding various banners.
About half-an-hour later, Jenapala ushered them to the parking lots opposite the headquarters entrance and handed banners including a few which read “Anwar loves Azmin. Take your love out of the party”.
Jenapala criticised the senior leadership of the party, blaming them for how the party elections had turned out.
“Our Putrajaya hopes have been slashed because of this. We urge the leaders to declare this party polls null and void,” he said.
“We love PKR but the leaders whom we used to love have gone astray from where we begun,” he added.
Jenapala said 162 complaints had been made in relation to the matter but were not entertained by the party.
“We have been patient for too long. Without us, your dream to Putrajaya will not come true,” he said.
He was accompanied by former Kota Raja division chief, KS Kotappan and a Selayang community leader Rajandran Batumalai, who contested the deputy division chief post in Selayang.
As the protest ended, Jenapala met with party central elections director Fuziah Salleh and strategic director Tian Chua, who were on their way to attend a meeting at the party headquarters.
They both advised Jenapala to resolve his problems with the party internally in the future.
Jenapala applied to the High Court to stop PKR from declaring any candidate as having been elected to the deputy president’s post.
The case will be heard Monday.

tunku : jenapala should stop urging anwar and azmin out from the party as it is impossible to happen. azmin is everything to anwar.the best for jenapala's group is to get out from pkr. pkr is proven to be a party that never walk the talk and full of empty promises. the indians in the party should realized by now that anwar had cheated them all these while. get out from the party or be fools forever in pkr.

Anwar Not Like Suu Kyi, Says US Writer

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 20 (Bernama) -- Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should not equate himself with Myanmar's democracy activist Aung San Suu Kyi, said a writer of an American right-wing website.
Rachel Motte, writing in the New Ledger, an American web publication which publishes the right-of-centre opinions, said the equation should not have been made as Anwar's personal case was different from that of Suu Kyi's.
In addition, Malaysia's political landscape has little in common with Myanmar's, she said.
"If anyone has suffered for the cause of democracy, Suu Kyi has ... not Anwar Ibrahim, who has enjoyed the benefits of a trial, a team of lawyers, access to local, national and international media outlets, his own political party and the freedom to travel the globe.
"Anwar is no Aung San Suu Kyi. Indeed, his actions as the co-founder of a front organisation for the Global Muslim Brotherhood indicated that he is in fact opposed to the democratic ideals she has sacrificed so much for," Motte wrote.
The writer claimed that Anwar was using Suu Kyi's recent release to attract attention to his own political problems when speaking on social justice and democracy in Sydney, Australia, early this week.

tunku : anwar is not even the level of suu kyi's shoes.he's lower than that.the writer is right, anwar has all the freedom, all the special assistance from local and abroad.he has more than 7 lawyers representing him in his SODOMY trial with worldwide dare he compare himself, a sodomizer to a noble person like suu kyi.he is just a moron that is losing grip in his own party.

Anwar in Australia to sell himself.

Regional Security Agenda Eclipses Anwar's Plan, Says Home Minister

PUTRAJAYA, 18 Nov (Bernama) -- Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said that Malaysia's regional security effort eclipses any anti-government agenda that opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is trying to sell Australia.
He said that Malaysia was working closely with Australia to curb human trafficking and violent crime that was crossing borders.
He understood that the Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, during her recent visit, had thanked Malaysia for checking human trafficking and other criminal activities that could jeopardise her country's security.
"Our efforts are duly recognised and they hope to see our (regional security) agenda enlarged," Hishammuddin told reporters here after receiving Ambassador at Large for Human Trafficking in Persons Luis CdeBaca.
"What Anwar Ibrahim is raising in Australia... people can assess for themselves if it is for his own self interest, if it is of political consideration or if it is narrow thinking," he said.
He was asked to comment on a statement by Anwar reported in the Sydney Morning Post that the death of Teoh Beng Hock, former political secretary of a Selangor executive counsellor, was "a case of murder that cannot be answered."
"He can besmirch his own country, but what has he done to make it better or strengthen it. I am more interested in looking forward, to build something that will determine the survival, status, harmony and security of the region.
"If asked to choose, I am sure the Australian leaders will pick the agenda that is bigger," Hishammuddin said.
Responding to a question, he said:" If he (Anwar) is not (desperate), he won't be there. Also, he wants to draw attention away from the problems of his party. That is usually his modus operandi."
Hishammuddin noted that Australia had a hung parliament and wondered why "somebody like Anwar Ibrahim would go to Australia to try and governise a port when the parliament is divided."
"If that is not desperation I cannot explain what objective he has in running down his own country," he added.

tunku : anwar is truly desperate as all his foreign contacts are running away from him, even clinton did n ot met him recently in kl.she just made a phone call. he is the number one traitor of this country.he can even sell this country just to be in power.malaysian should not be fooled by this can he manage this country when he can't even manage pkr? i think the government is too soft on this moron.

Namewee Show In Kuantan Cancelled

KUANTAN, Nov 17 (Bernama) -- A show of the controversial rap singer Wee Meng Chee, better known as Namewee, at an entertainment centre here on Saturday has been cancelled following objections from many quarters.
The owner of the entertainment centre, who only wanted to be known as Wong, confirmed that the show would not be held and said there had been a misunderstanding.
He said the organiser of the show had approached him to rent the premises for an artiste of his and offered to pay a high rental.
He said he had not asked who the artiste was but found out that it was Namewee when a banner was hung up at the premises on Monday.
Soon after, he said, more than 30 non-governmental organisations in Pahang objected to the show by Namewee who had raised controversy for belittling the national anthem "Negaraku" over the Internet in 2007 and insulting a teacher and the Education Ministry more recently.
Wong said he was also advised by the police and the Kuantan Municipal Council to cancel the show.
A check by Bernama revealed that the entertainment centre had put up a banner announcing the cancellation of the show.
Meanwhile, in Temerloh, Pahang Umno Youth stated its strong objection to the show, saying it feared it could spark off undesirable incidents.
Its head, Abu Jimmi Samat, said there was nothing racial to the objection but it was raised because Namewee had hurt the feelings of the people before.
"We want an entertainer who has noble values and can serve as an idol for all races," he said.

tunku : there should not have cancelled the show.the show must go on and let see whether this namewee is brave enough to face the consequences. wherever he goes there will be his special "fan" that will follow him. good for him.

PAS prepared to accept Zaid as member

KUALA LUMPUR: PAS will always open its door to former members of other political parties, including former PKR Federal Territory chief Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.
Party vice-president Datuk Husam Musa said PAS had previously offered Zaid a place in the party but Zaid preferred to be with PKR.
"He (Zaid) is in a position to join any party... we did invite him to join PAS before but he declined, so it's up to him now," Husam said on Bernama TV's Hello Malaysia programme here Monday.
Zaid, a former minister in the Prime Minister's department, had on Nov 8 made the shocking decision to quit all his party posts and withdraw from the contest for the deputy president's post, citing cheating in the party elections as his reason.
He also called on PKR advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and its vice-president Mohamed Azmin Ali to withdraw from the party, blaming them for the problems in PKR.

tunku : zaid will go no where if he joins pas, he will never be elected to the top post in the party. dap will be a better option for him as he will get something there but when you think about it, will anwar allow pas or dap to accept zaid ibrahim? it is best for zaid to form a new party that will cater for all the frustrated and desperate politicians who don't get any top position in their current party. may be he should invite kj to join him to form a new party.

Azizan going crazy.

Several Media Organisations Barred From Covering State Assembly Sitting

ALOR SETAR, Nov 14 (Bernama) -- Several media organisations were not allowed to cover the Kedah State Legislative Assembly sitting beginning today until Tuesday.
Sunday, several journalists from the organisation that had been barred from entering the Wisma Darulaman building to cover the official opening of the State Assembly sitting by the Sultan of Kedah tried to enter the building to cover the proceedings but were stopped by security guards at the entrance.
The state government only allowed journalists from Bernama as well as The Star, Sinar Harian, Harakah, Sin Chew Daily, China Press, Kwong Hwa Jit Poh, Guan Ming Daily, Oriental Daily, Nan Yang Siang Pau, Makkal Osai and Malaysian Nanban to cover the three-day sitting.
The letter informing the list of the media allowed to cover the sitting, signed by the Press Secretary to the Menteri Besar, Muhamad Helmi Mohamed Khalid, was sent to all the media organisations in the country on Thursday following what was claimed as "manipulation by the media against the Kedah state government lately".
Apart from the mainstream media, journalists from Malaysiakini were also not allowed to enter the building although the organisation was not in the list of the media barred from making coverage.

tunku : azizan has gone mad.there is no manipulation by the media lately against the state government but instead they highlighted the failure of the state government to handle the flood crisis recently.they should accept that they had failed miserably and should not show their anger against the media. this people can't take criticism at all.the people of kedah will surely show their dissatisfaction comes next election.

Selangor Sultan Not Attending Selangor Foundation's 40th Anniversary Celebration

SHAH ALAM, Nov 12 (Bernama) -- The Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah has declined to attend a function to commemorate Selangor Foundation's 40th anniversary, State Secretary Datuk Ramli Mahmud said.
He said the Sultan had initially agreed to attend the function with the hope that his presence would inject new spirit for the staff at the foundation and in appreciation of their efforts in helping to improve the performance of students from less fortunate families in the rural areas in Selangor.
"However, the Sultan is shocked and very sad after being informed of the high cost of the function," he told a media conference Friday.
The function was planned to be held on Nov 15 at the Tun Dr Ismail Hostel, Kampung Pandan, Kuala Lumpur.
He said the Sultan had suggested that the foundation organised a lunch, which would be cheaper, instead of a dinner, but it was not heeded by the foundation.
Asked on the cost involved, Ramli said it was more than RM300,000.
The Sultan felt that the money could be put to better use if used for education and the welfare of the less fortunate students which was in line with the vision, mission and objective of the establishment of the Selangor Foundation, he added.

tunku : a foundation that was established to help the needies using RM300000 for a lunch function.Bravo khalid ibrahim, keep spending money lavishly, after all it is not coming out from your pocket.he should be ashamed of himself as the foundation chairman.please do not use excuse that you don't know about it or what.if you don't know about it you should resign at once.DAULAT TUANKU.

Penang stops double tracking project over flood concerns

PENANG: Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has issued a stop work order on MMC Gamuda JV's double-track project until the firm can guarantee that it will bear all cost arising from compensation due to floods.
The decision was made at the state exco meeting Friday following claims that the project in Kedah had worsened the flood situation there.
Lim said the stop work order would be lifted after the company provides a written guarantee that it would bear all costs resulting from losses due to flooding in Penang.
He said the state government also wanted Gamuda to dismantle the tracks that caused rain water to stagnate should flooding occur.

tunku : this guan eng is doing all his gangster act again.he keeps delaying the the double track project in penang. if he's sincere he should tell gamuda to take all the necessary action to avoid flooding caused by the project.the state government engineers can monitor the situation and make sure everything is in order.if gamuda do not follow the rules and procedures than only they take action.. the cause of flood can be because of something else not the project.the work should not be stopped.what a moron cm.

Anwar Challenged To Contest Against Zaid In PKR Elections

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 11 (Bernama) -- Independent Member of Parliament for Kulim-Bandar Baharu Zulkifli Nordin Thursday challenged Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) advisor Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to contest for a party top post against Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.
Zulkifli said Anwar should take up the challenge if he really believed in the principles of democracy which he often harped about, and to leave it to the party members of decide.
"He (Anwar) talked about democracy, but he is not contesting (for a post) and he wants to be a leader. The time I had known him...I found him to be egoistic and could not be criticised.
"I challenge Anwar to contest against Zaid, one against one, if he's a real man...we see who'll win. But the list of party members must be cleaned up first to avoid any form of irregularities," he told reporters at the Parliament lobby here.
Zulkifli said the Opposition Leader did not practise democracy as he led the party without having to go through any party election.
On Zaid's proposal to set up a new Keadilan party, Zulkifli said he needed not do that as PKR would manipulate the matter besides accusing him of being an Umno tool.
On Monday, Zaid withdrew from contesting the PKR deputy president post, citing cheating and abuse of power in the party elections as the reasons.
Meanwhile, Zulkifli urged the Home Ministry to investigate the citizenship status of Beginda Anak Minda or Nor Azman Abdullah, whose son was reportedly caned by a teacher recently for bringing food that had pork sausage in it to school.
He said the ministry must find out how this man could have two different identities.
According to him, Nor Azman had contested on a PAS ticket for the Engkilili state seat using his Muslim name of Nor Azman Bin Abdullah or Beginda in the 2001 state election, and for the Kapit parliamentary seat, using the same name, in the 1999 general election. He lost badly in both elections to the BN candidates.

tunku : anwar is afraid of contesting that is why he put his wife there to be on the safe side.he is just like the usa, talks about democracy but never practice it in the true way.he is more than a dictator and zul is right, he can't be criticised.he''ll get mad and do anything to stay in power. anwar will never accept this challenge because he is born to be a coward.till today he had not sued ezam for telling the whole nation that he is a sodomizer and wan azizah herself told ezam about this.

Anwar, Azmin must go: Zaid

Memo to call off party elections to be submitted Tuesday

PETALING JAYA: PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim and vice-president Azmin Ali must go, says Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, who pulled out of the party's deputy presidential race Monday.
He said Anwar and Azmin were the ones that caused problems in the party.
"They must go," he told a press conference here Tuesday, adding that Pakatan Rakyat needed a new leadership.
When asked who would be the right party president, he replied: "I will be a good leader."
He said the current PKR elections were in shambles.
Meanwhile, party vice-president Mustaffa Kamil Ayub said he has prepared a memorandum to call off party elections within 48 hours.
He said he would summit the memorandum to the party president Tuesday.
"If the party elections are not called off within 48 hours, we will take further action," Mustaffa said.

Another big melodrama - Zaid quits.

Zaid quits race for PKR No 2, all party posts

PETALING JAYA: Datuk Zaid Ibrahim has quit the PKR deputy presidential race saying the party "leadership actively condone malpractices and electoral fraud to achieve its designed objectives."
"I wish to announce my withdrawal as a candidate from the contest of deputy president of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and my resignation from all posts held in the party," said Zaid in a statement Monday.
Zaid also resigned as the party's political bureau member, Federal Territory chief and Wangsa Maju chief.
He said he decided to pull out of the No 2 due to blatant vote manipulation.
He said "there is no attempt on the part of the party leadership to address the various issues of manipulation and unfair electoral practices, although these issues were raised repeatedly.
"It is of utmost disappointment that I am unable to continue in this flawed election process," he said.
Earlier, PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution Ismail had denied claims of vote manipulation despite numerous complaints of irregularities during divisions as well as central party polls.

Below is the full text of Zaid's statement.

" I wish to announce my withdrawal as a candidate from the contest of Deputy President of Parti Keadilan Rakyat and my resignation from all posts held in the party.
"I was offered to join this party under the belief that I could promote enlightened and progressive politics; nurture and develop principled political values and culture that I consider indispensable to the development of democracy and good governance in this country. I was mistaken.
"Over the course of the party elections, events have shown that the leadership actively condones malpractices and electoral fraud to achieve its designed objectives.
"I am certain that any political party with such hypocritical and false values will not be able to offer meaningful reforms to the people of this country.
"I have made this decision because there is no attempt on the part of the party leadership to address the various issues of manipulation and unfair electoral practices, although these issues were raised repeatedly.
"I wish to thank all the members who have supported me and placed their faith in the cause of reform.
"It is of utmost disappointment that I am unable to continue in this flawed election process.
"I remain committed to the Opposition’s cause and will continue to speak about the issues of the common people.
"Together, we will continue our unabated struggle towards a better government for the people.
"Finally, I hope those adoring fans of Anwar Ibrahim will no longer regard me as a “spoiler” standing in the way of their march to Putrajaya. I wish them well."

tunku : zaid knew very well about pkr before he joined them. he knew all but still joins that he's not getting high post he's quitting. he knows that he won't win the deputy post as azmin is too powerful in pkr with the backing of anwar. may be it is best for zaid to join dap as pas too won't give him any high post and its impossible a person like him would be given a high post in the party. dap would be his best choice as his ideology is similar to them.we hope that dap will give him a high post in the party.

PAS government only provided assistance in areas where the people were mostly their supporters.

Najib Orders Federal Agencies To Come In Aid Of Flood Victims

JITRA, Nov 6 (Bernama) -- Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has instructed all federal government agencies to come in aid of flood victims in Kedah and Perlis.
Conveying the order via a phone call to his political secretary Datuk Shahlan Ismail here, Najib said, there should be no discrimination in the provision of aid and that it should be given to all irrespective of their political affiliations.
"I am aware of how serious the flood situation in Kedah and Perlis and I will do all I can to help the flood victims," he said.
In the phone conversation, Najib, who is recovering from chicken pox, also asked Shahlan about the flood situation and expressed the hope that the people would be patient in facing the calamity.
He also thanked the people for their prayers for his health and speedy recovery.
Meanwhile, Shahlan said the Prime Minister's Office was now working with numerous corporations as well as with the Association of Wives of Cabinet Ministers and Deputy Ministers (Bakti) to provide assistance to the flood victims.
Non-governmental organisations would also be roped in to help the victims after the flood subsided, he said.
"We will provide about 10,000 units of gas stoves to the victims in Kedah and Perlis. I am currently dealing with the respective agencies to distribute these items," he said.
Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Mohd Johari Baharom, who was also here to hand over assistance to the victims, said the Muda Agriculture Development Authority and National Security Council would survey damages to crops so that assistance could be given to those affected.
A Kampung Pulau Timbul resident Aishah Hassan, 59, said the assistance provided by the state government was not sufficient.
Another villager, Saad Talib, 49, said most of the assistance were provided by the federal government.
"We are cut off from the outside world," he said, claiming that the state PAS government only provided assistance in areas where the people were mostly their supporters.

tunku : the federal government had gone to the ground from the first day.i had asked few friends in kedah about the situation there and they said that they have not seen any of the pakatan leaders coming to help them out except few places where the people were mostly their time of disaster we should not discriminate anyone regardless of the political ideology.the government of the day should help all it's people. pas are not showing the islamic value in is not too late, pas government should provide aid to all kedahans together with the federal government.they should not let the burden on the federal alone.

Guan Eng Barking Up The Wrong Tree, Says Wee Ka Siong

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 2 (Bernama) -- "Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng is "barking up the wrong tree" by forwarding an application to set up a branch campus of a Taiwanese university to me," said Deputy Education Minister Datuk Wee Ka Siong.
Wee said by right, the application should have been forwarded to the Higher Education Ministry.
However, he said the government had no problems working with any state which wanted to become an education hub but provided there were no political agendas.
"It was not right of Guan Eng to raise the matter with me when I was in Penang recently. However, I have no problems, if he so wishes, to bring him to meet Higher Education Ministry officials over the matter," he said when replying to questions from Yusmadi Yusoff (PKR-Balik Pulau) and Chong Eng (DAP-Bukit Mertajam) in the Dewan Rakyat Tuesday.
Yusmadi and Chong Eng had wanted to know if the federal government was willing to cooperate with the Penang government in making Balik Pulau on the island an education hub.
Meanwhile, to another question from Datuk Siringan Gubat (BN-Ranau), Wee said as of October this year, said the number of teachers from Peninsular Malaysia serving Sabah stood at 8,023 and 2,352 vice versa.

tunku : this shows how smart are these dap mps.they can even differentiate a ministry's role and yet wants to govern the country. as usual they always bark and bark and bark without any action.they are barking at their best as it is their expertise to always bark at the wrong trees and without facts.

Don't Twist Facts On Merdeka Heritage Project - DPM

KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 1 (Bernama) -- Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin Monday urged the people to refrain from twisting the facts on the Merdeka Heritage Project to be developed by Permodalan Nasional Berhad (PNB).
He pointed out that the project was not funded by the government, adding that the people should not underestimate the wisdom of investment institutions in developing projects that involved the construction of a 100-storey tower.
"Certainly they (PNB) are smart, we should not look down on the wisdom of PNB which has existed for so long and provided lucrative returns to its shareholders.
"I think no one should spin (the facts) unless he has ill intention and perceive it as a project that does not benefit him," he told reporters after opening the BioMalaysia Exhibition and Conference 2010, here today.
Muhyiddin said the project was not merely an iconic project but gave benefits and yielded returns to investors as planned by PNB before developing the mega project. He said those who claimed that the project was a waste because it used public funds did not understand the rationale and planning made by PNB.
"I'm rather disappointed when there are quarters who see the project as a waste. This is not public money but funds belonging to PNB which manages millions of shares. I believe those who do not understand (the project) do not get detailed explanation," he said.
Thus, he called on the PNB management to make clarifications on the project and its direction to the media so that the media could report correct facts.
"I want the PNB management to detail the PNB's future planning. Such plans were probably not explained and thus gave the impression that it is a project that does not bring in profits," he said.
The Merdeka Heritage Project was announced by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak when tabling the Budget 2011 last month and would be developed beside the Merdeka Stadium and Stadium Negara within a 10-year period.
Both the stadiums would be retained as heritage buildings.

tunku : the opposition is twisting the facts that tax payers money are involved in this project.they are not telling people the real facts. pnb should explain in detail about the project which is not only building the tower but also to develop the surrounding area into a new business hub in kl.people should be proud that pnb is investing in this project in our country rather than investing abroad. just look at klcc.lots of people make "noise" at the beginning but now everyone is proud of it except for few lots which will never appreciate and just for the sake of opposing. again we hope that pnb will explain to people in detail about this project comprehensively.

Kelantan treated water lost due to bad governance.

Half of Kelantan's treated water lost to leakage

KUALA LUMPUR (Oct 31, 2010): Almost half the total treated water supply in Kelantan last year was lost to leakages and poor water management and services, depriving the state of much needed revenue.
The state recorded a 48.3% loss or 61,567,985 meter cube of its total treated water supply in 2009, according to the Auditor General's Report 2009. The total amount of water loss is also known as Non-Revenue Water (NRW), as the government has to pay for its treatment, but received no income in return.
The Auditor-General's report revealed that the figure is way off the mark of from the state's target of 40%.
Water supply in Kelantan is managed by Air Kelantan Sdn Bhd (AKSB), a subsidiary of the Kelantan Mentri Besar Corporation, and the report attributed the loss to both physical and commercial factors.
Physical factors which caused the bulk of losses or 43.1%, include leakages from the main and connecting pipes, as well as problems to the water distribution and reticulation system (flow of water from treatment plant to consumers).
Based on customer complaint records in Kota Baru and Pasir Mas, the audit found that AKSB did not meet its customer's charter of providing repair services within 10 hours to two working days.
Instead, it took the contractors from between two to six days to make repairs, causing a significant amount of water loss.
In Pasir Tumboh, there was an elevated water tank that had been leaking for two years.
According to AKSB, the water tank's repair works were delayed due to budget constraints. AKSB said it had resumed repairs in April this year and was scheduled for completion in July.
There is also no proper record of water intake for treatment by AKSB.
AKSB was also plagued with unauthorised consumption of water, inaccuracies in customers' meters and data handling errors.
To improve meter accuracy, last year AKSB replaced 34,036 units with a new "smart model".
The report said that the Kelantan government had in 2008 received RM130 million under the Ninth Malaysia Plan to implement a holistic NRW reduction programme.
The programme involved two major contracts issued by AKSB to an unnamed joint-venture company - for research and implementation of NRW reduction initiatives statewide, and to design and activate a Geographic Information System (GIS).
Work in progress until last year was only at a mere 22.2% and did not meet its target of 28.3%.

tunku : although they receives fund from federal and also from the water supply revenue, still this aksb under the menteri besar corporation had failed miserably to give good water supply to the people of kelantan. they are getting dirty water most of the time. is this a good government? they can't even give the very basic needs of the people. the menteri besar for two decades had failed to give clean and quality water supply to the people.
