In a bid to oust the Menteri Besar of Terengganu Ahmad Said, 10 BN backbenchers boycotted the second day of the assembly sitting by not turning up at Terengganu state assembly sitting today.

Yesterday,  rumour was buzzing and spread like wildfire through SMSs’  and all over the internet saying that there was going to be a motion of no confidence on the Menteri Besar which would be tabled at state assembly sitting today.

This morning everything fizzled out and remained just rumours when the 10 assemblymen plotting against the Menteri Besar had chicken out last minute on the motion of no confidence and instead they just boycotted the assembly today.

Typical Umno style, talk one thing do another thing.

Anyway, we know that all is not well in Terenganu and a political storm is brewing there and it is a question of time before the Menteri Besar Ahmad Said is forced to step down.

In and another development, three BN assemblymen who were also party to the no confidence motion have reported that they allegedly received death threats via SMS. All three – Rosol Wahid (Ajil), Zakaria Ariffin (Paka) and Halim Jusoh (Pemaisuri) have lodged police reports.

If you remember, after the March 8th General Elections, the previous MB Idris Jusoh was also a victim of power play in the state and it was said that he too was not favoured by the palace.

So, this is not the first time a leadership struggle is taking place in Terengganu because the palace is not in favour of the CEO of the state.

This rebellion will only end if the present CEO is removed.


Sorry guys on 30th March,2009, I said, I Don’t Think Najib Will Get The Prime Minister’s Post This Friday. I was sure, way, way off the mark. Sorry again about that. Najib Tun Razak has proved me wrong. 

Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak actually became the sixth prime minister of Malaysia at 10am today, Friday, the 3rd of April, and the transition of power was smooth and without any hiccups. Thank God!

I express now my congratulations to Najib for securing the very important role, Prime Minister Of Malaysia.

The Palace endorsed Najib as Prime Minister of Malaysia with a swearing-in ceremony at Istana Negara today.

It is a great achievement for Najib personally and it is one all Malaysians can be proud of.

The challenges ahead for Najib are formidable, yet I hope that he will rise to them.

On behalf of this Blog and the readers, I would like to offer Najib ongoing support in his new role and take great pleasure in his success.

On a personal note let me say how pleased I am that Najib will have this opportunity to further his ideas and thoughts to improve Malaysia’s standing in the world in terms of freedom and human rights record.

Yes, we are in different sides of the political spectrum.

In the last election campaign, and in the years leading up to it, I campaigned vigorously against You, for the right to become Prime Minister and to govern this country. 

That is politics. 

We have brought different approaches, priorities and outlooks to the issues this country faces, and I have voiced those views strongly.

That I have been able to do so is one of the great strengths of Malaysian society and I thank Pak Lah a fellow Penangite, for allowing Malaysia to move in that direction after Mahathir’s 22 years of rule with an iron fist.

Although I have had my disagreements, Najib Mr PM, I say this: 

I am sure all Malaysians, no matter their political beliefs, know that your becoming Prime Minister today warrants the putting aside of politics and working towards the flagging economy which will be further hit real hard the coming months and years.

I for one wish you again the very best and hope you bring this great nation of ours to greater heights so that history will remember you as the BEST MALAYSIAN PRIME MINISTER.

Please, don’t play us out for heaven’s sake!.


Mengadap Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong

Al-Wathiqu Billah Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Ibni Almarhum Sultan Mahmud al-Muktafi Billah Shah

Yang bersemayam di atas takhta Kerajaan Malaysia dengan beberapa amat kebesaran dan kemuliaannya.

Assalamualaikum dan Salam Sejahtera,

Ampun Tuanku,

Dengan hormat dan takzimnya patik sekalian merafa’kan sembah dan berdoa kehadrat Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala, mudah-mudahan Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong sentiasa berada dalam keadaan selamat dan kesejahteraan.

Ampun Tuanku,

MEMOHON PERKENAN UNTUK MENANGGUHKAN LANTIKAN PERDANA MENTERI BARU SEHINGGA NAMA BELIAU DIBERSIHKAN OLEH SURUHANJAYA BEBAS

Patik sekalian mewakili semua 81 Ahli Parlimen Pakatan Rakyat dengan penuh takzim ingin merafa’ sembah mengenai rancangan YAB Perdana Menteri untuk mengadap Seri Paduka Baginda pada 2 April ini bagi menyatakan hasrat meletakkan jawatan dan menyerahkan jawatan beliau kepada YAB Timbalan Perdana Menteri yang merupakan Presiden UMNO yang baru.

Ampun Tuanku,

Jawatan Perdana Menteri ini merupakan suatu jawatan tertinggi dalam negara yang menjadi maruah sesebuah negara. Jawatan yang sebegitu penting seharusnya diberikan kepada individu terpilih yang bersih dan tidak dipersoalkan integritinya.

Baru-baru ini terdapat banyak skandal yang mengaitkan nama YAB Timbalan Perdana Menteri seperti komisyen pembelian kapal selam Scorpene yang melibatkan negara Peranchis. Yang paling mengejutkan adalah peristiwa pembunuhan seorang wanita Mongolia yang dikatakan turut mengaitkan nama beliau. Perkara di atas telah tersebar ke seluruh dunia dan diulas di banyak akhbar dan majalah seluruh dunia.

Oleh kerana perkara di atas begitu banyak diperkatakan dan memandangkan jawatan Perdana Menteri begitu penting buat negara ini, adalah amat wajar sekiranya Seri Paduka Bagida menangguhkan lantikan Perdana Menteri yang baru ini sehingga segala dakwaan berkenaan disiasat oleh sebuah Suruhanjaya Bebas dan nama beliau dibersihkan demi menjaga maruah negara ini.

Ampun Tuanku,

Patik sekalian akhiri warkah yang tidak sepertinya ini dengan sekalung penghargaan ke atas keprihatinan dan pertimbangan Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong. Mudah-mudahan Allah Subhanahu Wata’ala melanjutkan usia Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong dan seluruh kerabat Tuanku dan semoga sentiasa berada di dalam kesejahteraan dan kebahagiaan yang berkekalan.

Amin Ya Rabbal ‘Alamin

Ampun Tuanku,

Patik sekalian dengan segala hormat takzimnya;

Interesting developments, yesterday Pak Lah asked the media not to pester him on the date for the transition of power. Pak Lah urged the media not to keep asking him to reveal the date he will step down as Prime Minister. Pak Lah asked the people to be patient as the handing over of power to his deputy Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak would take its course. Pak Lah said “Just wait for that. Don’t ask me to say anything now. All these things will happen. The transition will take its course.”

So, it looks like till to date, there is no actual handover date yet to Najib Tun Razak, although, Pak Lah told the Umno Assembly that he is going to see the Agong on April 2nd.

Yesterday in an interview with BBC in London, Tun Dr Mahathir said that Najib is a good administrator but has got WEAKNESSES. Wow! this is a killer punch by Dr Mahathir. Looks like Dr Mahathir knows something about Najib which we don’t. In so saying, I believe Dr Mahathir has killed Najib. Even Dr Mahathir is favouring openly Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin to be the next PM instead of Najib.

What is happening here to our poor Najib? Is he ever going to be PM? I think not.

I strongly believe that our Agong too may not agree with Najib taking over from Pak Lah. I’m sure Agong too is aware that Najib has failed to dispel all the swirling rumours of his alleged links to the murder of Mongolian beauty Altantuya Shaariibuu @ Aminah. Our Agung will not accept Najib’s appointment as PM until Najib has satisfactorily cleared all the lingering doubts about the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu @ Aminah.

Wonder what must be going thro Najib and Rosmah’s mind now.  Must be full of anxiety and palpitations for Najib and Rosmah. So near and yet so far! I think this is KARMA and Najib is dead man walking.


I never fail to read Malik Imtiaz Sarwar’s articles. His blog “Disquiet”, and weekly column in the Malay Mail, is a never miss for me.

Malik, a fellow Penangite,  is a leading Malaysian human rights lawyer and activist and the current president of the National Human Rights Society (HAKAM). Malik is never new to controversy, at one time, there was even a poster circulating all over Malaysia declaring Malik to be a traitor to Islam and calling for his death, because, he was acting as an observer on behalf of the Malaysian Bar Council in the Lina Joy case. Remember Lina Joy, a Muslim woman converted to Christianity.

Malik was also one of the main players who had asked the government to set up a national inter-faith commission.

Read Malik’s latest “Precedential Transitions” a good eye-opener on the anticipated power transition to Datuk Seri Najib Razak by Pak Lah and the appointment which is a matter left entirely to the discretion of His Majesty the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.


“Your Majesty, do everything in your power to prevent any judicial error”

Open letter to the Sultan of Malaysia about blogger Raja Petra Kamaruddin

Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard wrote today to Sultan Mahmud Al-MuktafiBillah Shah, the king of Malaysia, asking him to intercede in the case of “RPK”.

“Your Majesty,

Reporters Without Borders, an organisation that defends press freedom worldwide, would like to draw your attention to the case of Raja Petra Kamaruddin, a journalist also known as “RPK,” who is charged under the Internal Security Act (ISA) in connection with articles posted on his Malaysia Today blog (http://mt.m2day.org/2008/) and who now faces the possibility of being imprisoned again.

In the speech you gave today, you described the younger generation as Malaysia’s hope and future. RPK is a model of the free speech this generation should enjoy.

The way the federal court in Putrajaya is conducting RPK’s case is travesty of justice. The court’s impartiality is jeopardised by the fact that Augustine Paul, one of the three judges on the panel handling the case, issued a ruling against RPK in 2001 as a “threat to internal security.” RPK had posted comments online that lambasted the judge for his role in Anwar Ibrahim’s corruption trial – comments that were widely circulated on the Internet.
