Eyeing Tamrin Ghafar's campaign speech on the night of 29th April,2013 at Taman Nusantara

Tamrin Ghafar has gone crazy and the late Ghafar Baba will be turning in his grave. Tamrin is very clever in manipulating his facts by quoting all the dead people that had told him so and so. Those poor people will have to dig out a lot of graves in order to prove him wrong. Tamrin's lies and deceit are so blatant and people with no clue and information about where he comes from and what he had become and where he wanted to go will be gullible.

No one expects Tamrin to be disloyal to his father's struggle and also UMNO's. He benefitted so much and are still benefitting from pensions whether as UMNO State Assemblyman or as an UMNO Parliamentarian. When you renounced the party do you renounced the benefits you are getting from the party? YES would be the right attitude and a principled one. No point talking about principles when one is not practising it.

Tamrin is not a bright student and we are not sure whether he studied what in Australia. He is also a developer who do not complete to develop projects when he was actively involve in Melaka. When he was MARA Chairman he made a boo boo of the Rahman Putra deal. He drives a car with the registration no: MT 1 (empty one). Announcing to the world his status.

So when he blames UMNO for the cause of May 13, 1969 and convince his audience that Al Marhum Tengku Abdul Rahman, his late father Ghafar Baba and the lateTun Ghazali Shafie told him so, the empty one successfully use dead people to be his witness, maybe not crazy but a smart move.

He starts with a blatant lie and continued spewing lies for the rest of his campign. An interesting analogy he debated about DAP not being a racist party but MCA is, is by comparing that MCA do not have  multi racial members whilst DAP has Malays, Indians and so on so forth. If he is not empty, he should know what the MCA constitution stipulates. YES UMNO, MCA and MIC are race based parties but they contested under the banner of BARISAN NASIONAL to represent Malaysians. They do not contest as a Malay UMNO. a Chinese MCA or an Indian MIC. The policies and principles for BN to form the Government is a united multiracial and multi religious Malaysia as seen under Gagasan 1 Malaysia.

Tamrin Ghafar, for the sake of Ghafar Baba's peace in rest, stop lying and deceiving. You can be disloyal to anything else, but not your father.

What Tamrin said in Taman Nusantara:

Dato' Mohd Tamrin b. Tun Abdul Ghafar Baba menyangkal fitnah UMNO terhadap Lim Kit Siang dan DAP sebagai dalang peristiwa Mei 13, 1969.
"(Menteri Dalam Negeri ketika itu) Ghazali (Shafie) memberitahu Anwar (Ibrahim) dan saya, ketika kami berada dalam Pergerakan Pemuda UMNO, bahawa kejadian itu adalah percubaan kecil untuk merampas kuasa yang dirancang pemimpin UMNO dan Mahathir terbabit,"
Tunku (Abdul Rahman) telah menulis dalam kolum 'As I See It" dalam akhbar The Star dua tahun sebelum beliau meninggal dunia, bahawa kejadian itu adalah percubaan merampas kuasa yang sengaja diadakan pemimpin UMNO yang kemudiannya menyalahkan DAP dan kaum Cina.

Malaysia Day gift - Internal Security Act to be abolished

Internal Security Act to be abolished, says Najib

15th September, 2011

KUALA LUMPUR: The Internal Security Act (ISA) 1960 will be abolished and two new laws will be introduced to safeguard peace and order, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said.

The prime minister also announced that the government would repeal the Banishment Act 1959 and reviewing other laws to be in line with current needs.

A comprehensive study will be carried out on the Restricted Residence Act 1993 and the Printing Presses and Publication Act 1984 where annual renewals would be done away with, and replaced with issuance of licence until it is revoked.

Announcing the matter tonight in his special Malaysia Day message, Najib said the two new laws would be formulated "under the spirit and umbrella" of Article 149 of the Federal Constitution to prevent subversive elements as well as fighting organised terrorism and crime, in order to safeguard peace and public order.

In the message delivered in front of 800 people at Angkasapuri and aired live over TV1 and TVi, the prime minister said the new laws replacing the ISA would provide for a shorter detention period.

He added that extension of detention can only be done through a court order, except in the law concerning terrorism where the power remained with the minister.

"Generally, the power to extend the detention period will shift from the executive to the judiciary, except in matters concerning terrorism," he said.

Najib had promised when he first took over the helm of the country's administration on April 3, 2009 that he would carry out a comprehensive review of the ISA.

Najib said tonight that the government would ensure that the rights of those being taken action under the new law would be safeguarded in line with the spirit of the Federal Constitution.

He said the government also assured that individuals would not be detained because of their political ideologies.

"The government will also review Section 27 of the Police Act 1967, taking into account the provision in Article 10 of the Federal Constitutions concerning freedom of assembly," he said.

Najib stressed however that stern action would remain against street demonstrators.

He said that the permit to assemble would be given under certain set of criteria to be determined later, taking into consideration the norms at the international level.

Najib said the government would not hesitate to amend or repeal laws which are no longer relevant. -- BERNAMA

There's still room for improvement: PM 2011/01/10

KUALA LUMPUR: Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said he is generally satisfied with inputs from his meeting today with Barisan Nasional MPs, but believe they is still room for them to improve their service to the people.The Prime Minister and BN Chairman said that some of the problems brought up to the MPs were beyond their capacity to solve.

"This is the real purpose (of the meeting) based on our catch phrase that BN puts the people first," he said.

Najib said the MPs need the support of the federal and state governments and must be able to bring problems of the people to the top leadership for a solution.
This way the MPs will be more effective, he told reporters after the meeting at the Putra World Trade Centre here.

Najib said that 105 MPs, including deputy ministers, came for the meeting out of the 112 invited.

Those who did not attend had written to explain why they could not be present. Ministers were not included because they had other opportunities to meet Najib.

The meeting -- which was a series of sessions with a group of MPs at a time -- started at 9.30am and ended at about 5.30pm.

Najib said the meeting was a good way for him and BN Secretary General Datuk Seri Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor to learn about problems in BN constituencies and consider how MPS could serve more effectively.

Asked whether the meeting indicated an early general election, he said it was part of the political transformation process which he announced at the Umno general assembly in 2009.

He said the transformation had begun with amendments to the Umno constitution and proposed amendments to the BN constitution.

Najib said that political transformation was important for BN as a coalition that put the people first.

He said he will also meet division heads in parliamentary constituencies not under BN. - BERNAMA

KUALA LUMPUR: The meeting of Barisan Nasional (BN) Members of Parliament (MP) with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak was focused on development in constituencies and preparations for the General Election.

Keningau MP and Deputy Chief Minister of Sabah Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan when met after his meeting with Najib said it was a fruitful meeting aimed at developing the respective Parliamentary constituencies and preparations for the next general election.

"He urged MPs to always go to the ground and meet the people to know their problems or needs," he said.

Johor Baharu MP Datuk Seri Shahrir Samad said the initiative by the Prime Minister was a good practice because it was not a 'one way traffic' system whereby MPs just received directives or orders from the top.

"The meeting was centered on grassroots and as the people's representative, I put forward problems, needs and strategy to retain the Johor Baharu seat and ensure it remained with BN," he said.

Pulai MP Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said the meeting was an update of what was happening in their respective constituencies and Najib had also directed his officers to monitor the development.

"What the PM is doing this is a very structured way, a very technical approach. He's gathering information to make sure the information from us tallied with his.

"He shared his information with us, and he also listened to our opinion. Maybe he will be calling for a snap general election, but I'm not pretty sure. But in Pulai, we are ready (for general election) and we will win," he said.

The meeting that started in the morning took a break for lunch and resumed at 2.30pm and by 4pm about 80 MPs had met Najib.

Among those who met Najib after lunch were former Prime Minister and Kepala Batas MP Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin and Jerlun MP Datuk Mukhriz Tun Mahathir.

"My meeting with the Prime Minister was straight forward, direct to the point and focused on issues in my constituency. Actually the Prime Minister already has a picture of what was happening in the respective constituencies as he already has received a report.

"So, it will be impossible to say something different or incorrect," he said.

Abdullah who said he had expressed confidence of regaining Penang, said it was a very positive initiative by the Prime Minister to restore the confidence of the people. - Bernama

Teoh Beng Hock

Date : 07/01/2011

Pejabat Perdana Menteri
1. Pada 5 Januari 2011, Majistret Mahkamah Majistret Shah Alam telah membuat satu keputusan terbuka di dalam inkues yang telah dibuat ke atas kematian mendiang Teoh Beng Hock.
2. Saya telah dimaklumkan oleh Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Peguam Negara bahawa beliau akan memfailkan satu permohonan semakan (“revision”) di Mahkamah Tinggi Shah Alam bagi menyemak keputusan Majistret tersebut.
3. Walau bagaimanapun, pihak kerajaan akan meneruskan keputusan yang telah dibuat sebagaimana yang telah saya nyatakan pada 22 Julai 2009 (seperti yang dilampirkan), untuk mewujudkan satu Suruhanjaya Diraja dengan terma-terma khusus, untuk meneliti dan mengkaji peraturan berkaitan soal siasat yang diguna pakai oleh Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia dan untuk menentukan sama ada berlaku pencabulan hak asasi semasa proses soal siasat terhadap mendiang Teoh Beng Hock.
4. Sehubungan dengan itu, satu Suruhanjaya Diraja di bawah Seksyen 2 Akta Suruhanjaya Siasatan 1950 (Akta 119) yang diberi kuasa untuk menyiasat perjalanan atau pengurusan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia dan di mana sesuai untuk menyiasat kelakuan mana-mana pegawai Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia, akan diwujudkan.
5. Suruhanjaya Diraja tersebut akan diwujudkan dengan terma-terma khusus yang akan ditetapkan dan pihak kerajaan akan melantik ahli-ahli Suruhanjaya yang terdiri daripada orang-orang yang terbilang (“eminent”) dan dihormati. Suruhanjaya ini akan diwujudkan selama tempoh masa tiga bulan selepas satu tauliah perlantikan Pesuruhjaya dikeluarkan oleh Yang DiPertuan Agong (“YDPA”) di bawah seksyen 2 Akta 119 dan boleh dilanjutkan untuk tempoh masa sepertimana yang dibenarkan di bawah seksyen 5 Akta 119.














1. Kabinet pada mesyuaratnya hari ini telah membincangkan dan mengambil maklum pandangan semua pihak berhubung kematian Saudara Teoh Beng Hock pada minggu lepas. Bagi pihak Jemaah Menteri saya mengucapkan takziah kepada keluarga Saudara Teoh di atas pemergiannya.

2. Selaras dengan konsep “1 Malaysia Rakyat Didahulukan Pencapaian Diutamakan,” saya telah memaklumkan kepada Kabinet bahawa institusi kerajaan diwujudkan hanya untuk menjaga hak dan kepentingan rakyat. Oleh itu semua institusi kerajaan bertanggungjawab memberi perkhidmatan yang terbaik kepada rakyat. Institusi kerajaan tidak boleh bertindak bertentangan dengan kepentingan rakyat, membelakangkan kepentingan rakyat serta melebihi undang-undang dan perlembagaan negara.

3. Maka dengan itu, Kabinet mahu penyiasatan kematian Saudara Teoh dilakukan dengan menyeluruh bagi mencari punca kejadian tersebut. Oleh itu, Kabinet hari ini mengambil keputusan berikut:

i) Pihak Kementerian Dalam Negeri dan pihak polis telah diarahkan menyelesaikan siasatan kes ini dengan secepat mungkin dan laporan ini akan diumumkan.

ii) Satu inkues yang diketuai oleh seorang majistret akan dijalankan bagi menentukan punca kematian Saudara Teoh. Saya difahamkan inkues ini mungkin dapat dimulakan pada minggu depan.

iii) Satu Suruhanjaya Diraja akan diwujudkan dengan terma-terma khusus, iaitu meneliti dan mengkaji peraturan berkaitan soal siasat yang diguna pakai Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia dan menentukan sama ada berlaku pencabulan hak asasi semasa proses soal siasat terhadap Saudara Teoh. Ini bertujuan memastikan perkara seperti ini tidak berulang lagi.

4. Langkah-langkah ini mencerminkan kesungguhan dan komitmen kerajaan untuk mencari punca kejadian tersebut agar keluarga Saudara Teoh dan masyarakat mengetahui sebenarnya apa yang berlaku. Saya ingin menegaskan bahawa kerajaan akan melakukan apa saja yang perlu untuk mencari kebenaran dalam kes ini. Saya juga akan memaklumkan sendiri kepada keluarga Saudara Teoh hasil siasatan ini nanti kerana saya telah dimaklumkan bahawa keluarganya minta kerajaan mencari kebenaran punca kematiannya. Apabila ada dapatan tertentu saya akan sampaikan kepada keluarganya.

5. Oleh itu, saya harap semua pihak bersabar dan tidak membuat kenyataan yang mengelirukan rakyat yang menimbulkan persepsi yang salah serta menjadikan kes ini satu isu politik sementara proses siasatan berjalan. Kita tidak sepatutnya campur aduk kes ini dengan urusan politik kerana yang penting ialah mencari kebenaran punca kematian beliau.

“We want to establish the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth in this case. The process of investigations will be forthright and transparent. We regard every human life to be sacrosanct, and civil liberties to be inviolable, and these are important values under 1Malaysia concept as well”.

Tengku Razaleigh will lead BN against PAS

Galas by-election: Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah agrees to be BN election director

By Patrick Sennyah

SEPANG: Gua Musang Member of Parliament Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah said today he has agreed to be the Barisan Nasional (BN) election director for the Galas state by-election on Nov 4.

However, he added, the question of him being the BN candidate in the by-election did not arise as he would have to first meet with Prime Minister and BN chairman Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, probably on Monday.

"I have yet to have a meeting. I may meet with the prime minister on Monday.

After the meeting, I will hold a news conference and announce the outcome of the meeting," he told reporters at the KL International Airport here after flying in from London following an overseas trip.

He was greeted at the airport by Kelantan Umno Liaison Committee Chairman Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed and Umno Information Chief Datuk Ahmad Maslan.

Tengku Razaleigh said his appointment as the BN election director for the by-election, nomination for which is on Oct 26, reflected his responsibilities as an Umno member and head of the Gua Musang Umno Division for almost 50 years as well as his role as the member of parliament for Gua Musang.

Galas is one of the three state seats in the Gua Musang parliamentary constituency in Kelantan.

The seat fell vacant following the death from colon cancer of the PAS assemblyman, Che Hashim Sulaima (rpt) Sulaima, 46, on Sept 27. He had won the seat in the 2008 general election by beating Mohd Saufi Deraman of the BN by a majority of 646 votes.

At the end of last month, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin had announced the appointment of Tengku Razaleigh as the BN election director for the by-election, saying the Gua Musang MP was most experienced and influential and was well respected by the constituents of Galas.

Muhyiddin had also hinted that Tengku Razaleigh was the most suitable individual to be fielded as the BN candidate in the by-election. BN is expected to name its candidate on Oct 24.

PAS had alleged that Umno was trying to destroy Tengku Razaleigh's political career by involving him directly in the by-election.

Replying to a question on the matter, Tengku Razaleigh said that was the view of PAS and he respected it.

However, he added, the opposition party should also respect the view of Umno.

Asked about the alleged attempts by PAS to manipulate the issue of the Kelantan oil royalty, Tengku Razaleigh said the matter was subjudice as the PAS government in Kelantan had referred it to the courts.

When told that PAS had expressed confidence in retaining the Galas seat in the by-election, he said: "Let's see (what happens) on Nov 4." - BERNAMA

Pak Lah's view on whats happening in Penang.

Pak Lah: PKR angry at Lim


By Audrey Dermawan

KEPALA BATAS: The public outburst by Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) leaders against Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng shows there were weaknesses in the latter's administration, said former prime minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Bada-wi.
He said the attacks also showed that PKR leaders were disappointed with Lim's attitude to and stance on several state matters.

He said there was truth to criticisms levelled against Lim especially since PKR Bayan Baru member of parliament Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim had used strong words to hit out at Lim.

"From what I see, this is the work of dissatisfied party leaders in Pakatan Rakyat and has nothing to do with others.

"This is clear evidence that there are problems in Lim's DAP-led state government," he said after presenting red packets and Chinese New Year goodies to senior citizens here yesterday.

Abdullah had been asked to comment on the political crisis in the state.

Zahrain had labelled Lim as a dictator, a Chinese chauvinist and a communist-minded leader. His colleague, PKR Nibong Tebal MP Tan Tee Beng, called Lim a chief minister with no class.

"I think this situation (political crisis) will continue and lead to shortcomings in the state government.

"Lim has to realise by now that there is a vast difference between his role as a state government (now) and as an opposition (then)."

Abdullah scoffed at claims that Barisan Nasional, particularly Umno, was responsible for the rift between PKR and DAP.

He said there was no need for anyone to interfere in the dispute. "This is especially so since PKR leaders are not afraid to speak their mind about the chief minister."

Faction ketiga dalam MCA?

Tiong Lai bertegas adakan EGM

KUALA LUMPUR 21 Nov. – Naib Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Liow Tiong Lai bertegas untuk mengadakan mesyuarat agung luar biasa (EGM) kedua pada 28 November ini.

Bagaimanapun beliau berkata, pihaknya akan akur jika semua perwakilan bersetuju untuk mengadakan pemilihan parti yang akan ditentukan tarikhnya secepat mungkin.

“Buat masa ini, EGM masih diteruskan seperti yang dicadangkan sebelum ini. Jika semua pihak bersetuju untuk mengadakan pemilihan parti, maka EGM itu tidak perlu diadakan,” katanya kepada Mingguan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Dalam pada itu, ketika ditanya mengenai pertemuan dengan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak semalam, beliau berkata, Perdana Menteri menyambut baik cadangan untuk mengadakan pemilihan parti.

“Perdana Menteri berpendapat pemilihan parti akan menjadi satu wadah untuk menyelesaikan krisis dalaman MCA kebelakangan ini.

“Bagaimanapun, kami (perwakilan MCA) harus meneliti beberapa perkara penting sebelum mengambil apa-apa keputusan berhubung EGM mahupun pemilihan parti,” jelasnya.

Ujar beliau, apa-apa keputusan yang diambil dengan persetujuan perwakilan MCA, pihaknya akan mengumumkan secepat mungkin.

“Apa yang penting bagi kami adalah menyelesaikan masalah dalaman parti seperti yang dikehendaki oleh beberapa pihak termasuk Perdana Menteri.

“Timbalan Presiden MCA, Datuk Seri Chua Soi Lek turut setuju dengan cadangan pemilihan parti. Maka, kini tugas kami adalah mendapatkan pandangan daripada semua perwakilan MCA,’’ jelasnya.

Khabar Angin atau Angin Khabar?

Husam letak jawatan?

KOTA BHARU 21 Nov. – Timbalan Pesuruhjaya II Pas Kelantan, Datuk Husam Musa dikatakan mahu melepaskan semua jawatan dalam parti dan juga kerajaan yang merupakan satu lagi episod yang menggambarkan perpecahan dan kekusutan dalam parti itu.

Namun hasrat itu tidak dipersetujui oleh Mursyidul Am Pas yang juga Menteri Besar Kelantan, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

Nik Aziz sebaliknya memberikan cuti selama lima hari bermula hari ini kepada Husam yang juga exco kanan kerajaan negeri untuk berehat dan menenangkan fikiran.

Tindakan Husam untuk melepaskan semua jawatan dalam parti dan kerajaan yang dikatakan berpunca daripada pendedahan kemelut dalaman Perbadanan Menteri Besar Kelantan (PMBK) yang diterajui Ir. Abdul Ariffahmi Ab. Rahman.

Abdul Ariffahmi yang kini sedang disiasat Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) merupakan menantu Nik Abdul Aziz.

Namun Pas Kelantan melalui Setiausaha Badan Perhubungannya, Mohd. Zaki Ibrahim berkata, perkara itu hanya khabar angin dan mereka tidak mahu mencampuri isu yang dihadapi Nik Abdul Aziz kerana menyifatkan ia tidak ada kena-mengena dengan politik.

Sumber memberitahu, hasrat Husam untuk berundur telah dikemukakannya kepada Nik Abdul Aziz yang juga Pesuruhjaya Pas Kelantan pada pertemuan empat mata Selasa lalu.

“Husam bertemu dengan Nik Abdul Aziz untuk menjelaskan bahawa beliau tidak terlibat atau menjadi dalang di sebalik apa yang berlaku dalam PMBK dan penjelasan itu diterima, tetapi hasratnya untuk meletakkan jawatan ditolak.

“Nik Abdul Aziz telah mengumumkan Husam cuti selama lima hari bermula hari ini pada mesyuarat Badan Perhubungan Pas Kelantan di kediaman rasminya, JKR 10 pagi tadi. Beliau (Husam) tidak hadir pada mesyuarat ini,” kata sumber itu kepada Mingguan Malaysia di sini hari ini.

Hari ini, sebuah portal berita melaporkan Husam mendakwa wujud konspirasi untuk menyingkirkan beliau daripada pentadbiran kerajaan negeri dengan mencetuskan perbalahan di antara beliau dengan Nik Abdul Aziz.

Malah khabar angin menyatakan bahawa Mursyidul Am Pas itu sedang menimbangkan untuk menggugurkan Husam daripada barisan Exco Kelantan ekoran isu pemecatan Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz sebagai Pengarah Perhubungan Korporat PMBK minggu lalu.

Syed Azidi yang lebih dikenali dengan laman blognya Kickdefella, pula dilihat sebagai antara orang kanan Husam.

Sumber itu berkata, dalam tempoh cuti tersebut, Husam juga akan menjalani pembedahan tulang belakang selepas ditangguhkan sejak dua bulan lalu.

“Husam sebelum ini beberapa kali menyatakan kesediaannya untuk berundur sekiranya beliau menjadi liabiliti kepada parti.

“Tetapi khidmat beliau masih diperlukan dalam membantu Nik Abdul Aziz mentadbir negeri ini,” katanya.

Sementara itu, Mohd. Zaki menafikan perkara tersebut dan menyifatkannya sebagai khabar angin.

Katanya, Pas Kelantan tidak mahu mencampuri isu berkaitan yang dihadapi Nik Abdul Aziz kerana menyifatkan ia tidak ada kena-mengena soal politik.

“Ia khabar angin sahaja dan jika benar sudah tentu dalam mesyuarat hari ini ada dibincangkan (perkara ini).

“Kita tidak pernah membincangkan soal ini, sebaliknya ia masalah pentadbiran yang boleh diselesaikan sendiri Tok Guru (Nik Aziz) selaku Menteri Besar,” katanya.

OTC and CSL decided to opt for my option one, maybe in the spirit of 1Malaysia

When MCA had their Extraordinary General Meeting, no one expect the extraordinary to happen. But the vote of no confidence to OTC was passed and the reinstatement of CSL was rejected. As I have mentioned in my earlier posting, if only they had used their brain instead of their brawn, it can save all these embarrassments.

Eyeing what the MCA delegates up to

On second thoughts, if they had used their brains rather than their brawn, both of them could still be working together constructively in a party where the Chinese Community put their hopes on in the political landscape of Malaysia. Now the community that is represented by the delegates at the extraordinary general meeting had shown them the way, the leadership decisions is questionable and did not get the confidence of their mandate and that the dismissal should not be done and at the same time there is no place for characters which have a reputation which can erode the good image of the Chinese Party.

The way forward,

one is for OTK and CSL quickly search their soul and ask for forgiveness and mend their rifts because it is proven that they are equally strong and if they are united, it is a very strong and formidable combination for the party subject to the endorsement of their supporters.

two, if they cannot get to terms, then the MCA needs to find a new force to bring the chinese community together and rebuild the Chinese political vehicle to be accepted by Barisan Nasional and Malaysians at large with dignity and respect so that they will be trusted to represent the ommunity in the next general election.

Menjunjung tradisi parti, menzahirkan perubahan

Presiden UMNO YAB Datuk Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razak menyemarakkan semangat para perwakilan yang berada di Dewan Merdeka, Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra (PWTC) melalui ucapan sulungnya sebagai Presiden UMNO pada Perhimpunan Agung Umno 2009 pada 15hb.Okt, 2009.

Dalam ucapan perasmian tersebut, beliau yang juga Perdana Menteri telah menyusur semula perjuangan UMNO dengan mengaitkan kepada peristiwa-peristiwa semasa termasuklah penggubalan dasar-dasar dalam kerajaan yang membawa kepada kemajuan rakyat keseluruhannya.

“Untuk menongkah masa depan yang cemerlang, kita perlu berakar teguh, dengan beriktibar daripada sejarah dan sistem nilai, barulah kita berupaya untuk tegak menghadapi masa mendatang,” katanya.

Lantas dengan susur galur UMNO sejak ditubuhkan hinggalah mengharungi pelbagai krisis terbukti keteguhan UMNO tidak ada bandingannya sama ada krisis politik dalam negara atau krisis antarabangsa termasuklah kemelesetan ekonomi dunia.

“Umno tidak boleh lagi kelihatan sebagai parti yang hanya dilihat condong kepada satu-satu pihak sahaja,” katanya dengan penuh semangat.

Menurut beliau lagi, selama ini UMNO dihormati dan disegani sebagai sebuah parti politik disebabkan ia mendapat sokongan majoriti dari orang-orang Melayu dan Bumiputera, lantas kekuatan UMNO adalah bergantung kepada ahlinya.

Beliau juga turut menempelak pihak yang mengatakan UMNO parti perkauman kerana hakikatnya UMNO dan orang Melayu amat terbuka dan bertolak ansur dengan kaum lain.

“UMNO akan terus mendapat tempat selama mana kehendak dan kemampuan rakyat dapat dizahirkan dalam perjuangan, seterusnya dimanifestasikan dalam gerak kerja demi kepentingan rakyat menyeluruh,” katanya.

Beliau berkata sebagai tonggak parti pemerintah, UMNO akan terus menjuarai soal kebajikan dan periuk nasi semua rakyat dan mahukan gerak kerja parti selari dengan tuntutan zaman.

“Khidmat UMNO harus merata. Kita akan tetap menjadi parti yang pro kepada pertumbuhan ekonomi berdaya tahan, pengagihan kekayaan yang adil, jaringan keselamatan sosial menyeluruh dan kos hidup terkawal,” ujar beliau lagi kepada para perwakilan yang berjumlah 2,541 orang.

Dalam ucapan tersebut juga, beliau turut menyeru semua bangsa Melayu untuk bersama-sama membentuk satu saf yang berasaskan pertautan pemikiran dan memulih silaturrahim demi kepentingan bersama.

“Apa yang penting, ahli-ahli UMNO perlu mewajahkan peri laku mulia dan nilai-nilai murni sebagai asas jati diri dan kekuatan parti,” tegasnya.

Beliau yang mengambil alih tampuk kepimpinan parti melalui proses peralihan daripada pemimpin sebelumnya Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi Mac lalu turut berpesan kepada golongan pemimpin di semua peringkat lapisan agar sentiasa melakukan muhasabah dalam diri, melihat kelemahan dan memperbetulkan kekhilafan.

“Janganlah segan untuk turun ke bawah dan merapatkan diri dengan akar umbi sekalipun kita menyandang jawatan tinggi – ini kerana mereka yang menunjukkan keikhlasan dan merasai keseronokan menabur bakti kepada rakyat akan menjadi pemimpin yang disanjung.”

Dalam proses perubahan UMNO juga, beliau menegaskan bahawa kriteria dalam menentukan calon pilihan raya akan diubah kerana calon itu perlulah seseorang yang diterima masyarakat tempatan di samping mempunyai kualiti untuk berkhidmat kepada tiga peringkat penting iaitu peringkat rakyat, peringkat parti dan peringkat negara.

Beliau juga mengajak agar ahli-ahli UMNO berhijrah meninggalkan gejala negatif seperti politik wang supaya UMNO menjadi parti yang bersih dan dihormati setelah pindaan perlembagaan parti dibuat pada Perhimpunan Agung Khas UMNO.

Katanya pindaan itu bukan bersifat kosmetik mahu pun tempel-tempelan, sebaliknya ia adalah perubahan secara tuntas dan signifikan.

Madu dan racun untuk memulihkan UMNO

AHMAD A. TALIB Najib's reality check for party


By Ahmad A. Talib

IF not for the tone of the speech, Datuk Seri Najib Razak's pre-assembly briefing to delegates at the Umno general assembly would have been described as harsh and hurtful.

It was hard-hitting no doubt, said delegates coming out of the closed-door session. In fact, the Umno president took the delegates to task for some of their questionable behaviour and got away with cheers and applause.

A delegate from Perak, who declined to be named, said he felt embarrassed when Najib highlighted the known bad habits of members. He was sure that many in the Dewan Merdeka at the Putra World Trade Centre where the session was held felt just as ashamed.

"But the light-hearted way in which Najib outlined these party-survival issues made the whole exercise less painful. But make no mistake, the words hit us deep. He ripped us apart, but did so with a big dose of humour and measured cynicism. He made us feel guilty and embarrassed," the 40-something delegate said.

Party president Datuk Seri Najib Razak at the pre-assembly briefing at the Putra World Trade Centre last night.

A seasoned campaigner from Negri Sembilan said he had not heard a speech delivered like that in recent years.

"At this point in time, Umno needs someone who can rally us and give us a reality check. I can tell you, we got it yesterday. We need to atone our misdeeds quickly," the man said.

The session was closed to the media. But delegates who shared their thoughts with reporters were in unison giving Najib the thumbs up.

Delegates came to the assembly expecting their president to speak from the high ground but were pleasantly surprised when he spoke in a language they could all understand.

They were happy and came out of the briefing with a renewed sense of purpose after hearing Najib's hour-long speech. Najib, delegates said, touched on money politics, ego problems, internal bickering and destructive behaviour which had alienated many good Malays from joining and serving the party.

A member of one of Umno's bureaus, who came from Terengganu, was also glad that Najib paid tribute to the ongoing efforts to consolidate the party in his state.

The internal dispute has lingered for several months and threatened unity and party machinery.

The delegate explained that what Najib did was to highlight the negative elements in the party and thrust them in the face of those present.

He did so with the right balance of humour and serious warning that if the members were to rest on their laurels, the important win in the Bagan Pinang by-election last week would have been meaningless.

Indeed, Najib set the tone for the proceedings over the next three days on a high note. It is now up to the delegates to move with the party leadership to chart a new way forward for Umno as it faces challenges ahead in the next few years.

Monday, September 28, 2009


Its not going to be easy for anyone to decide whether Tan Sri Isa Samad should or should not contest in the Bagan Pinang by election. It is easier said than done for UMNO to get out of the rut and be clean, some drastic measures should be taken some time, some sober actions should be taken other times. In my opinion, if Tan Sri Isa Samad is not loyal to UMNO, Negri Sembilan would also be an opposition state now and if he had contested as a PR candidate, he would be Negri Sembilan's Menteri Besar now. Should he be compensated for his loyalty now. Whatver, it is decision time.

Should Samy Velu be asked to leave MIC after winning uncontested in the last Annual General Meeting. Again it is easier for a non MIC member to comment against MIC's members' wishes. If the majority of MIC members had heeded to public opinion there is no issue. They chose not too. This must be respected. Its not up to anybody else outside MIC. Its for Samy Vellu and MIC to decide. Whatever, it is decision time.
