20,000 defy police to celebrate Anwar’s ban expiry

Aiya, I missed because got class…

About 20,000 people attended a rally in central Kuala Lumpur tonight to mark the expiry of Anwar Ibrahim ban from public office, a decade after he was sacked as deputy prime minister.

The crowd defied a ban on the event which was held in Kampung Baru despite scores of riot police were deployed in the futile attempt to stop the illegal gathering.

“We have not issued any permits for the gathering. I advise all the supporters not to attend it. The gathering is banned,” city police chief Muhammad Sabtu Osman told AFP earlier today.

At about 9.15pm, Anwar took the stage to tell his supporters to wait two weeks on whether he would be running for parliamentary seat and return to active politics.

Wow… read more at Malaysiakini here.

Say, what is the meaning of our votes at 12GE when frog MPs jump from one party to another party?

P/S: Some people went there because Raja Petra got wedding anniversary at same place.

Anwar to form new government? Please get Malaysians’ blessing…

Dear sir,

I read this in Malaysiakini.

Are you in a rush for the Prime Minister seat now or going to openly campaign for PM in the next General Election?

If now, appreciate please could you ask the PEOPLE of Malaysia for their blessing? It is important, because blessing (permission) can do wonders for a nation to heal any divisions, to move forward confidently and for families to live harmoniously.

An answer from Barisan Rakyat- DAP/ PKR/ PAS would be appreciated too, if Anwar is very busy. My two questions are:

Was GE12 about putting Anwar in the PM seat?

Were the people informed about this objective?

Thank you.

A cyber prescription for Barisan Nasional. Pak Lah are you listening?

Perhaps some Malaysiakini readers may have already written about this. But this take is better. hehehe…

Any BN leaders out there can carry this important message back to your leadership?

NB: Wouldn’t hurt newly crowned state governments to read it too.

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.

Malaysia’s next Prime Minister

Filed under: Announcement, Citizenry, Government, news, Politics — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — bananachinese @ 6:03 pm

This is my candidate for Prime Minister to stand in Malaysia’s next General Election.

Yeap, general elections due anytime. I better promote my candidate now.

And no, he’s not from UMNO, MCA, DAP, PKR or PAS. None from these parties can truly excite and offer me such hope for the future as this man can.
