Pakatan Rakyat makin terdesak sampai mahu Mahkamah tangguh PRK

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) makin terdesak dalam siri kempen PRK N 31 Bagan Pinang. Hari ini, Naib Presiden PAS Salahuddin Ayub mengumumkan bahawa parti yang mendakwa ‘berlandaskan Al Quran dan hadiths’ itu akan mengunakan proses undang undang melalui Mahkamah untuk menangguh pilihanraya, kerana mendakwa isu ‘undi pos’ itu sebenarnya proses yang dipalsukan.

PAS to seek court order to postpone polls

PORT DICKSON, Oct 7 — Alleging that hundreds of postal voters are also ordinary registered voters, PAS today said it will seek a court order to postpone polling for the Bagan Pinang by-election scheduled for this Sunday.

Speaking to reporters at the media briefing today, PAS vice-president Salahuddin Ayub said the party will first meet the Election Commission (EC) this afternoon.

“This afternoon we will meet the Election Commission to demand a clean-up of the electoral roll,” he said.

“If the EC does not do so we will not hesitate to take legal action, we will get our legal team to seek a court injunction to postpone polling,” he added.

“We have brought up this matter for years, since the formation of Bersih, and in various meetings with EC, but no action has been taken,” he said when asked why PAS was only taking action now.

Another PAS vice-president, Datuk Mahfuz Omar, cited a Bernama report quoting the president of the ex-servicemen’s association, Datuk Muhammad Abdul Ghani, who urged retired soldiers who have yet to change their status to ordinary voters to return to Bagan Pinang if they are still registered as postal voters in the constituency.

“So the issue here is, are the retired soldiers going to come back to vote or somebody else will vote for them?” asked Mahfuz.

PAS had previously claimed that 70 per cent of the postal voters in Bagan Pinang are retired servicemen.

Some 4,600 of the more than the 13,000 voters in the Bagan Pinang state constituency are members of the security forces.

The postal voters, traditionally a safe vote bank for Barisan Nasional (BN), will vote tomorrow while ordinary voters will go to the polls on Sunday.

Apabila segala kempen cara biasa dan usaha mendapat sokongan majoriti rakyat gagal, taktik Pakatan Rakyat adalah menggunakan Mahkamah. Sebagaimana yang berlaku di Perak Februari lepas apabila DYMM Paduka Seri Sultan Perak menolak permohonan MB boneka-DAP Nizar Jamaluddin untuk membubarkan DUN Perak bagi menjalankan pilihnaraya negeri kerana tiga ADUN PR melompat keluar dan Kerajaan boneka DAP Perak tidak lagi ada majoriti, mereka bertindak untuk menggunakan Mahkamah sebagai medan sarkas mereka.

Sistem undi pos ini diperuntukan melalui lunas undang undang dan menjadi amalan hampir kesemua negara kommonwealth yang mengamalkan demokrasi ala Westminster.

Dalam pada itu, Salahuddin juga mempersoalkan keputusan Perdana Menteri Dato’ Seri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak mengisytiharkan Pengakalan Adnan (Port Dickson) sebagai ‘Bandar Tentera Darat’.

No need for PM to declare PD as army town, says PAS’ Salahuddin

PORT DICKSON, Oct 5 (Bernama) — PAS wants efforts to develop Port Dickson as a tourist town be given priority and not declaring it as Army Town.

Party vice-president and its Bagan Pinang by-election director Salahuddin Ayub said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak should therefore, not have made the public announcement with the aim of fishing for votes.

“It’s not that I disagree (with the move), but the priority should be on making Port Dickson a top international tourist destination. That’s the real issue.

“It should not be that as the by-election was approaching, you suddenly declared it (PD) an army town,” he told reporters at the PAS headquarters for the Bagan Pinang state seat by-election at Batu 4, here, today.

He said “if PAS wins, it will be able to do something with PD’s existing infrastructure and natural beauty”, and armed with a strong political commitment to resolving development issues in Bagan Pinang.

On the issue of Padang Serai member of parliament N. Gobalakrishnan reciting a Quranic verse when campaigning for PAS here last night, Salahuddin said it might be out of the ordinary for Muslims in the country but it was not wrong.

Pengisytiharan ini jelas bahawa majoriti rakyat Malaysia amat menghargai pengorbanan dan sumbangan ATM, terutama Tentera Darat dalam proses menjaga kedaulatan Agama, Bangsa dan Tanahair. Malah, kami di BigDogDotCom mengesa agar Pengakalan Adnan dijadikan sebagai ‘Bandar Askar Melayu’, sempena sejarah ATM bermula dengan pengujudan Askar Melayu di Port Dickson, 76 tahun lampau.

Laporan Sin Chew ini juga merakamkan pemimpin PAS tergamak menghalalkan ayat Al Quran dipergunakan sewenang wenangnya bagi tujuan politik oleh Bukan Islam. Sebagai pemimpin yang mengaku bahawa ‘perjuangan mereka berlandaskan Al Quran Sunnah’, mereka sepatutnya mempertahankan ayat suci Al Quran dari dicabuli atas pentas untuk kegunaan politik oleh Bukan Islam.
