PAS denies plan to leave Selangor Pakatan .

By Neville Spykerman

SHAH ALAM, Sept 25 — Selangor PAS leaders today collectively denied a statement issued by its state liaison committee secretary Mohd Khairuddin Othman which claimed the party was ready to abandon Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

The statement, which also indicated Selangor PAS was fully behind Datuk Hasan Ali and his criticisms against the select committee for competency, accountability and transpa
rency (Selcat), received front-paged coverage in all mainstream newspapers today.

The state PAS commissioner has been causing a stir in PR by undermining the state government watch dog which is holding a public inquiry into the misuse of annual allocations by Barisan Nasional (BN) lawmakers ahead of the general election last year.
According to him, Selcat had bullied the district officers who had been grilled over how millions of ringgit in taxpayers’ money was allowed to be almost completely used up in just two months.

Scrambling to contain the fallout, PAS leaders told The Malaysian Insider that Khairuddin had made unauthorised statements which were not sanctioned by the party’s state liaison committee. "He should not have made the statement because the issue was never discussed," said Meru assemblyman Dr Abdul Rani Othman. "I have personally talked with other PAS lawmakers and leaders. No one had been called to attend any meeting nor were our opinions sought," he said, adding that the state liaison committee secretary was expressing his personal opinion and was not speaking on behalf of Selangor

Abdul Rani said he had spoken out against individuals making such sweeping statements in the press during a recent PR meeting and was appalled his advice had been ignored. As for Selcat, he said the PR backbenchers fully supported the public inquiry. "No one should try to be a hero for the Malays or a hero for the other races. In PR we have to work for all," he said, in a clear reference to Hasan, who is seen as trying to garner support from the Malay-dominated civil service by criticising Selcat.

Rani said a meeting between the Selangor mentri besar and all PR leaders should be called as soon as possible iron out the problems internally. Even if there were problems with Selcat, the matter should have been settled behind closed doors instead of washing dirty linen in public, he said. Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad, (photo) who had called on Hasan to leave PR if he could not be a team player, described Khairuddin’s statement as “interesting”. "It’s a very serious policy statement which contradicts the PAS muktamar, the highest decision-making body in the party which voted to work toward strengthening PR," said Khalid.

Other PAS lawmakers today also confirmed the party had no intention of leaving PR.
Sijangkang lawmaker Dr Ahmad Yunus laughed at the suggestion and said “I don’t think so.” while PAS’s Selangor executive councillor Iskandar Samad said the party was definitely staying in PR “despite all the bashing in the press.” When contacted, Khairuddin also backtracked from his earlier statement and said he was misquoted. "I made no mention about PAS leaving PR in my press statement," said the lawyer.

However, despite the U-turn the damage has been done. The issue of Selangor’s instability due to its constant infighting will likely be exploited by Barisan National (BN) during the upcoming by-election in Bagan Pinang where PAS is taking on Umno. Meanwhile, other Selangor PR partners today said they were giving room to PAS to sort out its internal problems. “I’ve been asked to stay out of it and allow PAS to deal with Hasan and Khairuddin,” said a state lawmaker who declined to elaborate further.

Salah satu daripada pecahan amal mulia di bulan Ramadhan adalah beri’tikaf dan bertafakur. Ketika melakukan pelbagai muhasabah, maka saya ada terpandang satu ayat yang sedikit mencurigakan. Ia berbunyi begini:

Perdana Menteri berkata, “kita tidak akan membiarkan Umno dipermainkan dan akidah parti itu dipersoalkan mana-mana pihak. Jangan persoalkan akidah kita (Umno)” (Berita Harian 8 September 2009).

Melihatkan kenyataan ini, hati saya tertanya-tanya sama ada bolehkah manusia atau parti politik membuat akidah? PAS tidak pernah mencipta akidah. Islam ini bukan pandai-pandai PAS. Ia agama yang diturunkan kepada Nabi-Nabi oleh Allah Azzawajalla. MORE >>

Will Selangor survive? After Beng Hock.

Selangor Pakatan faces life-and-death conspiracy threat. Monday, 10 August 2009 | LKS The Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government is facing a life-and-death threat with a high-powered Umno-BN conspiracy to topple it at all costs and restore Umno-BN rule in Selangor as in Perak six months ago.

This is not an ordinary challenge but a no-holds-barred onslaught and take-no-prisoners assault mobilising all available means and resources, including the most unethical and illegal, whether at state or national level, whether government or outside like the mass media, to destroy the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government and cause the break-up of Pakatan Rakyat.

DAP and Pakatan Rakyat leaders in Selangor and in the country should be fully aware of this latest life-and-death threat to the 17-month-old Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government as testified by two pronouncements by the two top Umno leaders today.

In Perth, Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said Pakatan Rakyat will be “history in a year” while in Kuala Selangor the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Abdul Razak declared that he wanted “Selangor back in Barisan Nasional’s fold” as the state is the “heartbeat of the country”.

Najib should answer whether he wanted “Selangor back in BN” so badly that he is prepared to resort to both “fair and foul means” even to countenance the most unethical, undemocratic, illegal and unconstitutional measures like the illegal coup d’etat in Perak in February this year?

In Selangor, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) has been unleashed, not to declare war against corruption as is the intent of Parliament, but to declare war on the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat Excos and Assembly members.

There is already one casualty, the mysterious death of DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock at the MACC Headquarters on July 16.

Will the true causes and circumstances of Teoh’s mysterious death at MACC ever be uncovered? The Malaysian public does not have great confidence that this would be done, and this is why there is the sustained nation-wide call for a Royal Commission of Inquiry rather than an inquest into the causes and circumstances of Teoh’s death.

If the MACC is genuinely committed to wiping out corruption and abuses of power in the allocation of constituency funds, it should investigate all elected representatives including Barisan Nasional and not just target Pakatan Rakyat ones.

In fact, if the MACC investigate all parliamentary and state assembly constituency allocations going back the last five, ten or 20 years, a special court on corruption would have to be set up to deal with the multitude of cases that can be the subjects of prosecution.

DAP will not countenance any abuse or misuse of constituency allocations and the leadership will have to review the whole system. The Pakatan Rakyat leadership will also have to conduct a review of the system to ensure two things: firstly, no abuse or misuse of constituency allocations; and secondly, no room for MACC to misuse its powers as catspaw of Umno/BN to declare war on Pakatan Rakyat.

Providing the macro setting for this high-powered conspiracy to topple the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat government and to break up Pakatan Rakyat, an insidious campaign had been launched to defame and discredit Pakatan Rakyat parties and leaders – such as the lies and falsehoods of Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim is “a traitor to the Malay race”, that the DAP as “anti-Islam” and that PAS is “subservient to DAP”.

Pakatan Rakyat is facing its worst crisis in 17 months and all Pakatan Rakyat leaders, state and national, must be in crisis mode, as the crisis stemmed from two fronts:

* Firstly, from the high-level Umno/Barisan Nasional conspiracy to topple the Selangor Pakatan Rakyat state government and destroy Pakatan Rakyat at all costs and by whatever illegal and unethical means; and
* Secondly, from the flurry of dissension among Pakatan Rakyat parties in Kedah, Penang and Selangor, causing more and more Malaysians to question whether they had properly and rightly vested their trust and hope in Pakatan Rakyat for change in Malaysia.

Pakatan Rakyat leaders are meeting on Thursday and they must demonstrate that they have not lost sight of the larger vision of building on the momentum of the March 8, 2008 political tsunami to realize political changes in Malaysia by securing increasing support from Malaysians of all races, instead of frightening off support whether Chinese, Malays, Indians, Kadazans or Ibans.

Umno and BN have scented the possibility of “a kill” after the Manek Urai by-election in Kelantan on July 14, 2009 after PAS won it with a reduced majority of 65 votes as compared to the 1,352-vote majority in the March 2008 general election.

Can PAS and Pakatan Rakyat prove that this was only a “false sense” on Umno and BN’s part in the upcoming Permatang Pasir by-election in Penang later this month?

Rampasan kuasa Selangor: Perancangan 16 Sept berulang?

Desas-desus bahawa Perdana Menteri, Najib bakal merampas kuasa kerajaan negeri Selangor daripada Pakatan Rakyat pada September tahun ini, mungkin berakhir seperti perancangan 16 September, tahun lalu. Agak mustahil untuk Barisan Nasional merampas lapan kerusi, sebagai langkah menjatuhkan kerajaan PR buat setakat ini.

Namun, seandainya BN cuba menyempurnakan rancangan rampasan kuasa dengan dakwaan rasuah terhadap ADUN tertentu, ia mungkin memerlukan lebih masa. Singkatnya, kemungkinan untuk BN menggulingkan kerajaan PR Selangor pada September tahun ini, hampir mencecah sifar.[more]
