Have these Ketuanan Rakyat Crooks no decency at all?

There should be a limit where one can take up on their vested interests. Especially, not against the ‘system’. Somehow, for the Ketuanan Rakyat advocates, that is not the case. Yesterday, despite being barred from organizing an unsanctioned Special Assembly at the Perak State Assembly in Ipoh, which is against HRH Paduka Seri Sultan’s explicit consent (as per interpreted by the State Assembly Speaker), Speaker Sivakumar and his band-of-bandit-ADUNs staged an ‘assembly’ under a tree yards away from the parameters of the augur hall.

Pakatan reps hold meeting under raintree

Perak State Assembly emergency sitting

IPOH: Under a raintree and the scorching sun, Perak Speaker V. Sivakumar created history by convening an emergency meeting of the Perak “State Assembly” in a vacant plot a stone’s throw from its usual venue.

The 27 assemblymen who turned up – all from the Pakatan Rakyat – stood around Sivakumar, who had earlier donned his robe, and convened the sitting at 10.20am.

The 28 Barisan Nasional and three Independent assemblymen were not present.

Dressed in black suits, as they would have in the State Assembly, the assemblymen who turned up took the conducted matters of the House seriously and were oblivious to the heat and cheering crowd which had turned up to watch this latest twist in the tussle between Barisan Nasional and Pakatan Rakyat for control of the state.

The police left them alone and did not move away from the State Secretariat building.

The emergency meeting was held under the tree as police had barred all elected representatives from entering the State Secretariat where the State Assembly is located.

The Pakatan reps did not play to the “gallery” despite them cheering and holding up placards in support, and passed the three motions which were tabled within 15 minutes.



They were motions to support Datuk Seri Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin as the rightful Mentri Besar; to dissolve the State Assembly, and to adopt the order made by the Rights and Special Privileges Committee to suspend Datuk Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir and his six executive councillors.

After the sitting was adjourned, part of the excited crowd were seen posing for photographs with the raintree which is said to have been there for decades.

Earlier, supporters from both Pakatan and Barisan had gathered peacefully in front of the heavily police guarded State Secretariat as early as 8am.

The situation turned chaotic when Barisan supporters formed a human chain at the building’s main entrance in an attempt to deny Pakatan assemblymen, who turned up at 9.45am, from entering.

Supporters began shouting, pushing and shoving each other, triggering a stern warning from Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm Azisman Alias that anyone, including the elected representatives, would be arrested if they refused to disperse.

The police did not arrest anyone as the crowd backed off when the Federal Reserve Unit was preparing to fire a water cannon.



It seems these defiant Ketuanan Rakyat ADUNs are only interested in getting into power and not to do what they are supposed to do: representatives of the rakyat and make law for the state. The law stipulates that the group that has the majority support in the augur house shall form the Government. On January 2009, they lost this advantage and turned over to BN. These selfish power crazy politicians simply refused to give and went on a defiance-spree, trying to disrupt everything and anything possible, physical, legal and even unlawful.


As the result, the Perak State Government is impaired. There have been no new approvals made by the Exco. The newly sworn on MB Nizar and Excos have no time and resource to do anything but deflect of all these unproductive attacks and sordid attempts.

Have they no decency at all?

The rakyat is the one who is suffering and will suffer. At the dawn of the global financial crisis, which inevitably affect Perak, the Ketuanan Rakyat Crooks are more interested to get their power-craze craving rather than serve the interests of the people, tactically and strategically. Never mind in the process to regain power, they disrupt the machinery of the state government. Its them coming back to power which is more important!

Apparently, this is the same tone and modus operandi that party-less Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim did when he was sacked as the Deputy Prime Minister on 2 September 1998. Malaysia was facing a critical regional financial crisis then and he was more interested bringing then Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad’s Government to its knees, prop himself up and throw anything and everything, in sundry, the planning and process of achieving his sordid dream to assume power.

‘Reformasi’, something then a familiar setting in Jakarta, was brought into the Malaysian shores. Young Malaysians were exposed and systematically taught to embrace ‘street demonstration and violence’ politics and do away with civility. For the first time also, politics were taken into the Malaysian cyber scene in an exponential growth.

This ‘under the raintree’ drama is exactly the kind of attention these sordid people crave for. Former abuse-of-power convict Anwar Ibrahim is known for being a ‘Drama King’. Somehow, this ‘infectious disease’ is getting to other power crazy people.

  1. Apa nak dihebohkan!.Sebelum ini pun Di Negeri Pasir Berdengung dan Negeri Batu Dua Butir sudah pernah berlaku (Kerajaan bermusyuarat di bawah Pokok) seperti yang dilapurkan olih Tan Sri P.Ramlee. Nampaknya Datuk Seri Nizar dan penyokong2nya juga mengharapkan akan ada hulubalang dari Negeri Atas Angin akan datang dengan Tikar Terbang, Teropong dan Serunai Anjaib untuk membantu. Wallahu Allam

  2. To avoid all this chaos… let the Perak people to decide. Not BN, not PR and not even the Sultan…

    Everyone has their thoughts and rights and they can even write lenghty notes in their blogs… give back the final say to the rakyat… or is the BN too afraid of the rakyat??? Bigdog are in denial too?

    The democratic system under the Constitutional Monarchy is about the rakyat deciding on a representative. To form a Government, the person who has the most support of representative, gets to be the Menteri Besar.


    Go and look it up in the Constitution, be it Federal or Perak!

    So happened, MB Dato’ Dr. Zambry Abdul Kadir now commands the majority of the elected representatives and HRH Paduka Seri Sultan is convinced so. There it goes. No more qualms about that!

    Hence, there is no need to dissolve the Perak State Assembly, which is only 11 months old.

  3. Bro,

    Cerita fasal bawah pokok ini teringat suatu ketika dahulu, kalau tak silaplah…kalau silap tolong betulkan…peristiwa Dato’Annuar Musa pada sekitar tahun 90-an, ketika krisis imuniti raja-raja Melayu meledak,telah menabalkan Tengku Ibrahim (kalau tidak silap saya sepupu kepada Tuanku Sultan Kelantan) sebagai Sultan Kelantan yang baru. Majlis pertabalan itu telah disempurnakan di bawah sebatang pokok gajus di sebuah padang sekolah di Kelantan.

    Kalau tak silaplah!

    Kami tidak berada ditanah air masa itu dan internet belum lagi meluas, untuk menerima maklumat terkini (semasa pada masa itu).

    Apakah Dato’ Annuar Musa berhak menabalkan Tengku Ibrahim sebagai Sultan Kelantan? Peruntukan apa yang beliau guna untuk bertindak demikian?

    Nampaknya, sekiranya peristiwa tersebut benar benar berlaku, maka sejauh manakah sesahihan pernabalan itu?

    Jelas hari ini, Al Sultan Kelantan DYMM Sultan Ismail Petra Ibni Almarhum Sultan Yahya Petra.

  4. Kenapa UMNO Perak takut sangat nak adakan pilihan raya kat Perak?

    Tolongla jangan bagi alasan pembaziran wang dan masa…

    Generasi UMNO sekarang sudah bacul atau menjadi pengecut…takut tewas sebelum berperang…atau memang dah tahu keputusannya jika pilihan raya diadakan?

    Untuk apa?

    Menurut Perlembagaan, samada Persekutuan atau Negeri Perak, mana mana individu mempunyai sokongan majoriti atau terbanyak ADUN berhak menubuhkan Kerajaan, atas perkenaan DYMM Paduka Seri Sultan.


    Semaklah Perlembagaan.

    MB Dato Dr Zambry Abd Kadir kini mempunyai sokongan 31 ADUN Perak untuk menubuhkan Kerajaan Negeri Perak dan DYMM Paduka Seri Sultan yakin atas sokongan majoriti ini. Oleh itu tidak perlu untuk adakan Pilihanraya Negeri, HANYA semata mata mahu “test power” populariti PR sahaja!

  5. BIGDOG !

    SIMPLE !
    Then let the winners be in peace to do what they are supposed to do for the wellbeing of PERAK and her PEOPLE.

    That was 8 March 2008. Now, on 3 March 2009, PR no longer enjoy the majority of Perak DUN. The tide has been turned.

    BN now enjoys that majority!

    And HRH Paduka Seri Sultan is convinced that BN has the support of 28 + 3 ADUN, which makes them enjoy the majority of the Perak DUN. HRH Paduka Seri Sultan also is confident that the well being of the rakyat is being taken cared of when he gave consent and appointed Dato’ Dr. Zambry Abd Kadir as the 10th Menteri Besar.

    There is no necessity for the rakyat to decide as these ADUNs are legal representative of the rakyat and there is no provision in the Constitution for the Perak DUN to be dissolve just when the majority party suddenly becomes minority.

  6. haha…now I know why people labeled bigdogdotcom as the blog of the right wing of UMNO…

    frankly, I am appalled to see the extra mile that you’re willing to go just to defend the absurdity and falsehood of your party and its members…

    well, maybe that’s just me!

  7. syauqi_x,

    1) Could you please explain what were the absurdities and falsehood mentioned in BigDogDotCom’s article?


  8. husain,

    1) It is not up to BN whether to have a state election or not. That decision is for the DYMM Sultan to decide.

    2) DYMM Sultan DID decide and unfortunately for PR, the decision was not in their favour.

    3) Why can’t PR just bite the bullets and fight another day? Why not just keep quite and respect the decision of HRH?

    4) This is not about siapa takut siapa berani. This is about maturity in politics.

    5) Watch this if you do not understand -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKE5sGyHB50

  9. “It seems these defiant Ketuanan Rakyat ADUNs are only interested in getting into power and not to do what they are supposed to do: representatives of the rakyat and make law for the state” – Big Dog

    This is totally wrong, they passed resolution to desolve the State Assembly and return power back to the Rakyat. They are not power crazy but only BN is, BN is afraid of the Rakyat now?

    1. They are no longer majority of the Perak DUN. BN is now the majority and did not support this dissolution. How could the PR as minority pass a dissolution?

    2. DAP-puppet MB Nizar sought audience with HRH Paduka Seri Sultan for a consent to dissolve the Perak DUN and vehemently denied.

  10. Inilah masanya untuk kita meneliti perlembagaan Perak.

    Perlembagaan Perak menetapkan kuasa Sultan untuk melantik mana-mana Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri yang difikirkan mendapat sokongan majoriti. Selepas pilihanraya March 2008, tiada satu parti yang jelas mendapat majoriti mudah dalam pilihanraya.

    Tiada siapa yang mempertikaikan kuasa Sultan ketika itu, Berat untuk orang Melayu menerima Nizar sebagai MB memandangkan mereka sedar kuasa sebenarnya pada DAP. Tetapi itulah pilihan Sultan.

    Masalah sekarang Nizar tidak dapat terima Qada dan Qadar. Dia lupa pada Firman Allah swt yang kuasa boleh diberi dan juga ditarik balik sekelip mata. Terimalah hakikat yang kerajaan negerinya telah tumbang.

    Terimalah hakikat yang Sultan Perak telah melantik MB yang baru. Janganlah demdam kesumat membutakan Nizar akan realiti. Kerajaan Pr telah tumbang.

    Satu soalan yang selalu dinyatakan. Kenapa tak kembalikan pada rakyat untuk memilih kerajjan baru? Rakyat telah buat pilihan Mac lalu. Tiadanya parti majority membuatkan segalanya terserah kembali pada Sultan Perak.

    Dan hak baginda( mutlak) untuk memilih sesiapa sebagai MB. Dan hak baginda untuk perkenankan atau tidak pembubaran Undangan Negeri.

    Kelam kabut sekarang bukan kerana Sultan Perak tetapi sikap Nizar yang tak dapat terima kenyataan. Itulah masalah sebenarnya.

  11. Untuk renungan kita bersama

  12. Bro,

    Bukan soal “test power” atau soal “keahlian ADUN”. Hal ini demikian kerana majoriti BN di Perak pun tidak stabil. 2 ADUN yang kunun2nya menyokong BN itu pun bermasalah. Sebelum mereka menyeberang pun pihak media sudah “menganggap” mereka ini seolah-olah bersalah. Berbagai2 fakta kes dilaporkan dalam media. Sampai soal rasuah seks pun diceritakan dalam media. Bagaimana jika mahkamah mendapati kedua-dua “mamat” ini bersalah? Kalau tiba-tiba didapati tidak bersalah, maka sudah tentu persepsi masyarakat menganggap ada “tangan-tangan ghaib” yang mempengaruhi kes ini.

    Justeru, apabila diadakan pilihan raya, bolehlah BN membersihkan namanya di samping mendapat majoriti yang lebih kukuh dan bersih serta stabil. Kerajaan yang mempunyai ADUN yang berintegriti. Kerajaan yang diperakui oleh pembangkang dan seluruh rakyat Malaysia. Kerajaan yang tidak boleh dicabar penubuhannya oleh mana-mana pihak.

    Selain itu, banyak pihak mempertikai rampasan kuasa di negeri tersebut sebagai suatu yang menyalahi Perlembagaan dan Undang2 Tubuh Negeri Perak. Prof. Aziz Bari serta pelbagai pihak mengatakan Sidang Bawah Pokok itu sah. Menurut beliau, “Apa yang berlaku sah dan tidak menyalahi undang-undang kerana perlembagaan dan arahan tetap dewan menyerahkan kepada speaker untuk menetapkan tempat bersidang.”

    Soalnya, adakah BN mampu mendapatkan sokongan majoriti rakyat Perak jika diadakan pilihan raya? Kalau BN yakin, ayuh adakan pilihan raya, supaya dapat ditutup mulut2 pemimpin PR. Saya beranggapan BN takut untuk mengadakan pilihan raya. Kalau mereka yakin, percayalah, percayalah (pinjam kata-kata D. Ahmad Shabery) sudah ada pilihan raya baru di Perak.

  13. Bro,

    Fasal Pertabalan Bawah Pokok itu, rajin2lah bertanya dengan veteran UMNO, takkan seorang pun tidak pernah dengar. Tidak tahulah jika perkara itu hanya khabar angin. Rasa2nya banyak yang tahu!

  14. […] PR goons even held an illegal emergency of the Perak State Assembly under a tree, when then the planned emergency session did not get HRH Paduka Seri Sultan’s perkenan. […]

  15. […] This obviously was not the first time. The development and handling of the Perak issue saw how DAP Chairman blames PKR de facto leader Anwar “Drama King” Ibrahim and summarily ask him to step down as Opposition Leader. The PKR anarchy-style-street-mob infested and unwillingness-to-adhere-to-establishment-rules-of-conduct style of leadership, which they dared to resort of being blatant ‘derhaka and ingkar’ as well, was a clear-cut Anwarista SOP was being clearly portrayed during the Perak Government takeover episode, which is legally still on going. Of course, these Anwar contagious effect of the rest of PR shows their ability to go the distance, even to make the augur houses into three-ring-circuses. […]

  16. […] Bar Council had realized that VK Linggam and/or Muhammad Shafee were into unethical practices since 1987 time to time the Malaysian judiciary that make the prostitutes operating in Jalan Alor look like Mother Teresa by comparison.the barisan national government arrogance, egotism and stupidity to revoke the memberships of unethical lawyers there might only be 5 or so lawyers Jump to Comments have these ketuanan melayu crooks no decency at all?

  18. […] Pakatan Rakyat Primates monkeying again…. They have done it again.  Despite that the Perak BN Government has been legally installed, with the new Speaker, Chief of Storm-stirer Sivakumar called for an illegal Perak State Assembly this morning. When they were barred to enter the Perak State Assembly by the authorities as there exist an injunction putin place by the Perak courts applied by the Perak State Secretariat, the usual theatrics take place. Hence, in their sordid attempt to attract international attention, this time they convened the illegal assembly in a hotel instead under a tree. […]
