Muhyiddin for UMNO President aka Malaysia Prime Minister? Pakatan Rakyat say something!!!

Woah!

Muhyiddin is really hinting out loud that he is willing and ready for a go for Presidency for UMNO.

Anybody else ready to throw the gauntlet and go for gold? Ooops, candidancy?

Can we have caucus in every state of Malaysia before the finale at the UMNO party election later this year?

Caucuses where the state UMNO delegates have chance to listen to the candidate’s dreams & fears & hopes?

Caucuses where the delegates will take away the messages for tearing to pieces at the local mamak or warong kopi?
I will be following this closely because I want a qualified PM this time around. At least, if the PM do get to meet Obama, our PM won’t get outshined unneccessarily by the new age leader.

P/S:

And I am very angry that the rest of the BN component parties and Pakatan Rakyat do nothing to demand for qualified candidates for UMNO Presidency. As Malaysians, we are stakeholders in the executive post of the country. Or have we relinquished our stakes in the country???

Say something, Anwar Ibrahim, Wan Azizah, Lim Kit Siang, Nik Aziz, please….

Non-Malays should not seek equality nor seek clarification

My friend, a Kelantanese, was shocked after watching a snippet of Tengku’s speech on TV1 10.30 evening news last Saturday. Tengku Faris read the text in front of him word for word. Malaysiakini reported it faithfully.

Raja Petra said that the speech Tengku Faris read out wasn’t his. That it’s just a case of the text being shoved to him. Let’s say that’s true. Didn’t Tengku realise what he was reading even as he was reading it out loud? If he was forced to read it, what does this say of him? Why did this Cambridge grad mouth the words?

Should we just ignore and sleep over it… This Tengku could one day be our king!

Nik Aziz has also come out and said that an Islamic state is inevitable. Ong Ka Ting was vilified and accused of ‘insulting’ Islam when he asked PAS to clarify if Islamic State agenda is really dropped or submerged for purposes of 12GE.

PR voiced their reservation (if not outright objection) directed at the individual making these statements. But that was just not enough to guarantee security of my rights.

Damage was done and my heart is broken.
