PKR Reps To Cross Over To BN

The continuing saga of party defection in Perak...

Today, Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said several Pakatan Rakyat elected representatives in Perak would cross over to Barisan Nasional soon.

But he declined to name the representatives nor state how many would be crossing over.

He said an official announcement would be made once the representatives had gone through all procedures to join BN.

The prime minister was speaking to reporters after launching the Federal Territories Day Festival at Taman Tasik Titiwangsa. (source: NST)

And in Perak, Menteri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin has called on PKR Behrang state assemblyman Jamaluddin Mat Radzi and Mohd Osman Jailu (PKR-Changkat Jering) to declare their stand in the Pakatan Rakyat-led Perak government.

The
two had gone ’missing’ since Monday.

Nizar said the two could not be contacted by their family members since they went missing on Jan 26.

He was speaking at a news conference after chairing a meeting with state leaders from Pas, DAP and PKR at his residence in Ipoh.

Nizar said the state government may make a police report on their disappearance after discussion with their families.

Jamaluddin, 52, is the chairman of the Perak Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Committee and Osman, 57, heads the State Tourism and NGO committee.

They both face charges of corruption involving the approval of a development project worth RM180 million in Seri Iskandar and the case will be heard in the Sessions Court here on Feb 10.

Najib behind 'disappearance' of PKR men: Anwar
Athi Veranggan | Feb 1, 09 7:21pm
Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim has called on Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to reveal the whereabouts of the two Perak executive councillors from PKR who have gone ‘missing’ for five days.

"I have received information suggesting that Najib was behind the disappearance of both PKR excos," Anwar said, taking a swipe at the Umno deputy president for proving to be an expert in 'safeguarding and protecting' missing persons.

Behrang assemblyperson Jamaluddin Mat Radzi and Changkat Jering state representative Mohd Osman Mohd Jailu have gone missing since last week and PKR de facto leader Anwar believes that BN premier designate Najib was behind their ‘disappearance’.

Anwar recalled the incident where private investigator P Balasubramaniam went missing last year after making two contradicting statutory declarations within two days in relations to the murder trial of Mongolian national Altantuya Shaariibuu.

"One should ask Najib on where the two PKR excos from Perak are, and also about Bala. After all, he is an expert in handling missing persons," Anwar, the Permatang Pauh parliamentarian, told newsmen after meeting six Perak PKR assemblypersons for an hour in a closed-door session at Yayasan Aman complex in Penanti, Penang mainland.

The six who met Anwar were Abdul Yunus Jamhari (Kuala Kurau), Tai Sing Ng (Kuala Sepetang), Chan Ming Kai (Simpang Pulai), Chang Lih Kang (PKR), S Kesavan (Hutan Melintang) and ex-Umno Bota assemblyperson Nasarudin Hashim, who crossed over to PKR last week. Gopeng parliamentarian Lee Boon Chye was also present.

On the meeting, Anwar said the six assemblypersons have pledged their loyalty and commitment to PKR and Perak state government.

"They have vowed to preserve the stability of the Pakatan Rakyat state government," he added.

Party hopping no more immoral?

Many PKR leaders believe that both Jamaluddin and Osman are now under the protection of top Umno leaders, notably Najib.

Some have alleged that millions of ringgit was involved in the BN coup de tat to usurp the Perak government from Pakatan, which came to power in last March general election.

Anwar also took a swipe at BN national chairperson Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for making a complete U-turn on the virtue of ‘party hopping’ when the prime minister confirmed today that several Pakatan assemblyperson would soon cross over to BN.

"I am shocked that he had said this when he and other Umno leaders condemned party hoppers as immoral politicians. So now he can accept party hoppers? It's no more immoral now?" he asked, referring to Umno's criticism against Nasarudin’s (right) switch of political allegiance to PKR last Sunday.

When asked whether the Perak government would dissolve the state assembly and called for a snap state election, Anwar said that Pakatan was confident to fight another poll.

He expressed optimism that Perak government led by Menteri Besar Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin was confident to face the people if the political situation in the state becomes unstable.

"I am not saying that there would be a snap election. But Pakatan is strong, and we are confident to face the people again," he said.

At present, Pakatan has 32 seats in Perak with DAP (18), PKR (8) and PAS (6), while BN has 27 with Umno (26) and MCA (1).

Mohamad Nizar plans to lodge 'missing person' police reports on Jamaluddin and Osman, both of whom are facing graft charges.

It's learnt both may initially declare themselves as independent assemblypersons before joining Umno on a later date.

Tit-for-tat defections

Many Pakatan leaders are resigned to losing the duo to Umno which could destabilise the 10-month-old state government which leads the BN opposition by a razor-thin majority.

However, they also indicated that at least three more Umno state assemblypersons in Perak would emulate Nasarudin’s footsteps soon.

But one assemblyperson indicated that the Pakatan government would dissolve the Perak assembly and called a snap state election "as the last straw to stop BN coup de tat."

Meanwhile, the sudden ‘disappearance' of Perak state assembly deputy speaker Hee Yit Fong today fueled speculation of her imminent crossover over to MCA.

With Hee's defection, BN will have the three additional representatives it needed to claim government.

Given this, Menteri Besar Mohamad Nizar may exercise his option of calling a snap election.

But the Perak sultan will be called to play a pivotal role on whether to agree with Mohmad Nizar in dissolving the state assembly or hand over the state government to the one which commands the majority, which in this case could be BN.

MNO through the eyes of Sudin, Ajis and Ramlee

UMNO as seen through the eyes of three old men.

AJIS

SUDIN

RAMLEE

Collectively known as Bujang Lapok.


UMNO adalah sebuah parti politik yang berjuang mendukung cita-cita kebagsaan Melayu demi mengekalkan maruah dan martabat bangsa, agama dan Negara or as Bujang lapok says...Hoiiii menceceh...menceceh ...menceceh...menceceh...menceceh (repeat if you think it is necessary - this is an interactive site and your participation is encouraged). While it is uncertain whether UMNO pertahankan kermerdekaan Negara atau kedaulatan Negara today its main activity consist of the following:


Loyar buruk.
Sana sini bikin sibuk.
Naik basikal semacham beruk,
Takde kerja tolak habuk.


JENIS AHLI


Ahli-ahli UMNO adalah dua jenis:


Ahli Biasa ialah Warganegara Malaysia yang berbangsa Melayu atau Bumiputra yang berusia 18 tahun keatas. Mereka mesti memakai songkok dan mengunakan basikal cabuk tak pernah gosok, tayar kempis roda bengkok.


Ahli Bergabung ialah sebuah pertubuhan politik yang bersetuju berkerjasama dengan UMNO dan menerima syarat-syarat yang ditetapkan oleh Majlis Tertinggi tertapi mereka ni tak boleh harap masuk angin keluar asap.


Disclaimer: Any reference to any Individual or UMNO member in this article is intended and not apologized for.


Ok guys this is as far as I can mentally go in attempting to do this serious work...a discourse on UMNO through the eyes of our favorite trio...Bujang Lapok....with respect, thanks and apologies to Bujang Lapok to whom I am forever in debt for the hours and hours of happiness and laughter I get when watching them on the screen. If any of your readers are game enough please continue this serious bit of work and maybe we can put our work together into something we can share with others.

BUY LOCAL IS TO SHOW THAT THE FLIP FLOP IS PATRIOTIC AND A GOOD PEEM BUT WHY HE RAISED THE PETROL AND DIESEL PRICES BECAUSE HE DID NOT HAVE THE RAKYATS' INTERESTS AT HEART AND INTENDED TO MAKE THE RAKYATS SUFFER IN REVENGE FOR UMNO'S DEFEAT IN 5 STATES BUT NOW HE HAS NO WHY OUT BECAUSE THE DOMINO EFFECTS ON THE RAISED FUEL PRICES HAS CAUSED FOODS AND NECESSITIES AND ELECTRICAL TARIFFS TO INCREASE AND IT SEEMS THAT THEY ARE NOT COMING DOWN ANYTIME SOON DESPITE THE FLIP FLOP'S EFFORTS THE RAKYATS WILL NOT EVER FORGET NOR FORGIVE HIS BAD DEEDS TO THE NATION'S ECONOMIC WOES CREATED BY NONE OTHER THAN THE FLIP FLOP PEEM AND HIS GREAT BULLSHITS. THROW HIM AND UMNO OUT THE NEXT ELECTION WILL RESOLVE MOST OF THE PROBLEMS CREATED BY HIM AND HIS TAINTED CABINET.

THE CAUSE OF POLICE BRUTALITY IS THE RESULTS OF BAD INFLUENCES FROM BAD POLITICIANS LIKE SI BOTAK, NARJIS AND FLIP FLOP WHO BROKE THE LAWS THEMSELVES WITH IMPUNITY WITH COVER UPS AND MORE COVER UPS, AS A RESULT THE PDRM IS COVERING UP THE 1,000 MURDERS THEY COMMITTED IN POLICE CUSTODIES.

You can cheat the people for some time but fifty years of plundering and cheating the coffers of the nation is too much. It looks like the coffers of the nation is their own kitty bank and therefore UMNO must be removed otherwise nothing would be left for our Children’s Children as the riches of Malaysia will be syphoned off by all these UMNO thieves, robbers & goons.

Look at the Billions in Wang Ehsan from Petronas for Terengganu State that were squandered by the present PeeM and his SIL Khairy on the Crystal Mosque and the Mariner Yacht Club and the other many Billions of the Federal Government are lost through the expensive purchasing of Helicopters, Aircrafts and Submarines by DeePM Narjis the most greedy of the lot who selected the most expensive so that he can receive kickbacks and bribes and resulting in the murdering of Altantuya for uneven split distribution of the loot. Do you think you can trust him to be the next PeeM, probably he would have sold off Malaysia including his mother for some gravy.

Throw UMNO's tainted cabinet members out along with all their goons will resolve most of the problems Malaysia is facing today and bring Justice back so that those who commit murders must be punished by Justice whether legal or spiritual at God's Grace.
