OTK showdown OCT 10. Will democracy survived? Reformed needed

Looking at the news surrounding PKFZ, Chua Soi Lek (CSL) and MCA. It seems the tussles for power and supremacy keeps building up. Excerpts from the STAR captured my attention.

Ong Tee Keat has choosen the right move to agreed with the EGM. He has uphold what he believed is truth. With truth at hand, he has even stick his ministrial post at stake in unveiling the PKFZ controversial issues by making it public. The public needs strong leaders that take care of the people’s interest at heart and steps in to defend to correct the wrongdoings. Despite pressures from all quarters, in my opinion, the truth shall prevails with democracy to works at its best. We do not need leaders that are no brainer and no guts to speak up when they are required to. With the coming EGM, i believe OTK with the silent majority will do the correct steps to reform MCA and give OTK the renew mandate to save the party.

Well, certain group  such as  CSL’s group trying hard to get him reinstated, personally i wonder, do they do this for the party,  the overall chinese population, malaysians at large, or for CSL?  We will need delegates to vote with conscience.

Noticed the March 2008 election has opened the eyes o fthe Malaysians, it also shows that BN and PKR either one can be the choice of the people if they adopt a government having the people at heart. The people wanted less corruptions,wrongdoings and swift actions to handle it. Personally with stable government, the majority of peole won’t suffer but a corrupt and badly managed will destroy the country.

We are all born under the BN government, as over the years failure to cross-check of certain individuals has tarred its image. Whereby the new PKR government has taken over 5 states, noticed they are the same group of people crossed from BN and the behaviour are childish. Not befitting to hold post. Therefore for the sake of country, uphold the basis of constitution and remember all the reps that are elected are need to sworn to protect all Malaysians of all race, colours and religions.

Let’s take some polls here:

Blow to UMNO as Former PM Tun Mahathir Quits As Member Pressuring Badawi

While Pak Lah and its team still struggling to keep the UMNO intact, former Malaysia PM Tun Dr Mahathir called it a day by quitting as UMNO member and urged the rest to follow suit to pressure the current premier Abdullah Badawi. Another UMNO party veteran Tan Sri Sanusi Junid also quits as well. Meanwhile Tengku Razaleigh refuted rumours that he will quit and maintained his stance that he will challenge PM Abdullah in UMNO polls scheduled in December.

Some UMNO insiders said the decision by the former premier and veterans might further weakens UMNO and give way to Pakatan Rakyat to further grip power in the disoriented BN coalition. Looks like the rakyat will be worried as curent political situation might deter investors from coming in full force. Read all these in STAR, Malaysian Insider, Malaysia Kini, MalaysiaToday, SinChew, NSTP and SUN

Soul-searching time, Tun Mahathir voice out

In the latest update news from the STAR online, former premier Tun Mahathir continues to unleash his criticism saying that it will help UMNO and in response to allegation by several UMNO leaders that he was providing ‘ammunition’ for the opposition to destroy the party. While Tengku Razaleigh continues to mount pressure against PM Badawi.

Hmmm, it seems like more finger-pointing and blaming from all quarters on the failure of UMNO to regain its supremacy after 50 years in strong power. I wonder do they really  think straight? or is there a hidden agenda? come on, the rakyat needs a clean, democratic government and not a bunch of fools. They have forgotten all these boils down to dissatisfaction done by their civil servants and make the rakyat frustrated with all the arrogance shown by their reps. Wake up and clean your act and make sure policies are properly executed and implemented for the benefit of rakyat without bias.

In the weeks to come, expect Pak Lah to come under fire while the Pakatan Rakyat continues to enjoy their new victories at the five states, Selangor, Penang, Kelantan, Kedah & Perak. Let’s see whether the Pakatan Rakyat by DAP-PKR-PAS fulfils their election promise and not just a marriage of convenience to get power. The rakyat Malaysia does not like to be cheated.

 

After the 12th General Election, what’s the postmortem? BN wake up or forever disappear.

Now the Malaysia’s General Election is over, some of the Barisan National(BN) component parties still blur on what hit them and the Barisan Rakyat (BR)gotta deliver their promises after sweeping 5 states. With Menteri Besar been sworn in, we can see the sultan’s also take the opportunity to deliver severe blows to Badawi in order to regain their power.

 Interesting to note, some of the component parties within BN still in a self of denial. It does not matter anymore, the main thing is, whoever been elected by the People, shall serve the People whole-heartedly. Malaysians do not like to be cheated in the ballot boxes, If not the swing will be shown again in the next GE.

 I’ve read an interesting article at MalaysianTodayon MCA’s defeat is due to its structural weakness and the bullying part of their so called partner UMNO by keeping silent and not been treated as a partner. Hello what is sharing of power if cannot discuss openly. Since the opposition are controlling few states, will they behave like the BN eventually? only time will tell.  Take a look at the article The Future of MCA.  So MCA are you still living in twilight zone as a second largest component party? are you ready for the new world order?

 Lets’ keep our eyes open on the political development situation in the country with many things will unfold soon…….
