Worry about Nurul Izzah (Anwar Ibrahim?)

Share with you concerns from another voter from Lembah Pantai on reading Nurul Izzah’s interview in The Sun yesterday weekend edition. This uncle voter has sms his concerns to friends in Lembah Pantai.

In italics are Nurul Izzah’s statement from the interview and uncle voter’s response in bold.

Some points that really hit the wrong buttons for me this morning as I read the papers. My worries:

“I wouldn’t say that I lack experience. I have first hand experience. That is my advantage.” The experience of fighting for one cause does not equal being able to handle AND deliver the dynamic, contradicting needs of 200,000 people in Lembah Pantai.

“I am in the opposition. I can speak without fear or favour.” Only being able to speak so will not move anything for people in Lembah Pantai. They deserve somebody who will be able to get things moving, done and delivered.

“Shahrizat is in the government also means that she faces a heavier burden to prove to the people what she has done all this while.” If Nurul Izzah had been old enough, she would be able to tell how Shahrizat solved the inefficiencies for Lembah Pantai. To date, thousands of families that have moved out of squatters into proper flats, no more flooding, enjoy more job opportunities (and yes that includes all the PAS and PKR supporters) . If one were to say that Shahrizat has to PROVE anything in regards to what she has done all this while, it truly means that one has NOT done their homework and not travelled the entire of Lembah Pantai. The very LRT station Nurul Izzah stood at to shake hands with the people is a result of Shahrizat working well with many authorities. Don’t tell me Nurul Izzah didn’t realise that!

“What has Shahrizat been doing with all the allocations provided in the past 12 years?” Refer to the answer above. And go read the papers over the past 12 years.

“Why is it that people in certain parts of Lembah Pantai are still in a pathetic living condition?” Spoken like a truly naive young girl. You cannot take note of one area in Lembah Pantai and live in a bubble in regards to its situation. Look around and compare. Also those very people living in the ‘pathetic’ living condition are actually pending moving into flats.

“We do not need an MP with more money, but one with stronger political will.” Evident enough that PKR will not be able to give Lembah Pantai people what they need. Lembah Pantai people are not a tool for PKR’s one cause, but actual people with actual lives. Reality bites: Money is needed to provide the necessities of life. Not JUST political will. Perfect thing though, Shahrizat can give both!

NB: Can’t find this interview in Malaysiakini. I’ll let you know what my family members think of this later.

  2. Terrible, the MP for Lembah Pantai actually threatened the residents with these –

    http://www.malaysia-today.net/2008/content/view/3797/1/

    These people must have been the MP for far too long, to the extend that they think the money to build these flats belongs to the BN! They think they should be given credit for something done and problems solved! Not forgettting that these MP receive a monthly salary for the service rendered…

    Does BN actually fork out his own money to create all these facilities? Was it the BN money or was it the Rakyat money?

  3. Hahaha. ARe you sure this is what Nurul Izzah said? Gosh, if you (Nurul Izzah) didn’t do your homework, don’t bother speaking up, you’ll end up looking like a fool trying to be smart.

  5. Err…guess who won!
    It seems despite her “being naive”, Lembah Pantai residents (or are you talking about Bangsar residents?) still voted for her! Hmmm….

  6. A vote for Nurul Izzah is a vote for Anwar Ibrahim and tne Barisan Alternative (DAP and PKR). A vote for her also reflects the support for whatever the opposition is fighting for. Perhaps we are nearer to the 2 party system as in the US or England or Australia. A good sign that we are moving towards a develop nation status !

  7. winning in the recent election does’nt mean u r a winner already until proven otherwise….most people in Lembah Pantai voted blindly because they don’t even care what the opposition is fighting for….or what they want….U don’t care what she said and for what purpose….eventually L P will regret what they have done to themself…

  9. PKR SYMBOLISE AT leasT THEY CLAIM
    to fight for Justice Actually they are
    Mobilising the Chauvinism in Chinese & Indian : The are not fighting for right of class i.e poor ,unforunate,underprivilage of all races but they are FIGHTING for THE RIGHT OF INDIAN & FOR THE RIGHT OF CHINESE…….They are saying when women fight for equal right actually the are fighting for MORE RIGHT…SO ARE THE CHOUVERNIST.

    PKR is not base on sincere ideology of humane and human right as the claim. They way they go in to street defy Ghandi concept of Non Violence.
    Under pretex of Right of Speech
    They vandalise .

    Like Communism fuel by hatred
    Though the original mastermind
    concept is communalism. Communist fail because no spirit of sharing as it preaches
