Stop hoodwinking Bersih using streets, use Dewan Rakyat

The true invisible hands and benefactor of BERSIH 4

The true invisible hands and benefactor of BERSIH 4

Bersih 4 organisers, who are very closely affiliated with the Chinese Chauvinist DAP, should stop hoodwinking the Malaysan pubic using BERSIH street demonstration but instead use the current political storm to test the outcome of democracy through the augur Dewan Rakyat.

After all, their sordid drama of “Unfair elections” isn’t really genuine since they accepted the election system outcome and DAP, PKR and PAS used the legitimacy of the past two GEs and claimed the right to form the respective state governments.

DAP has since March 2008 ruled Penang and PKR ruled Selangor. PAS, which is a trued jaded benefactor of the same election system then and now, has been in power in Kelantan since Novermber 1990.

The Opposition has been persistently harping that they would want to table a motion in the upcoming October Parliamentary session to moot a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Mohd. Najib Tun Razak.

Kit Siang stresses need for no-confidence vote against Najib

By LOOI SUE-CHERN

Published: 25 August 2015 3:11 PM
As the political and economic situation gets more worrying, DAP today reiterated the need to table a no-confidence motion against Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in Parliament.
DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar had assured yesterday that any no-confidence move against the prime minister was neither criminal nor a police concern.

This, the DAP veteran said, would allow a proper and less inhibited discussion on the alternatives to the present Najib administration.

He said the safest bet now was to assume that only some 75 to 78 opposition MPs would take a common position on the motion with the balance having to be made up from Umno and Barisan Nasional MPs.
“Although DAP, PKR and PAS have 88 MPs, it will be foolhardy for anyone to assume that the 21 MPs from PAS would all support a vote of no-confidence against Najib unless there was clear and specific directive from PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

“Are there at least 35 Umno BN MPs who are prepared to join with the opposition MPs on a ‘Save Malaysia’ agenda including the no-confidence motion against Najib?” he said in a press conference at the Penang DAP headquarters today.

Last month, Hadi reportedly said PAS would consider the necessity of the no-confidence vote, although his remark was reported as telling PAS MPs to stay out of it.

However, last week, PAS deputy president Datuk Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man said PAS would support a no-confidence vote against Najib.

BN as a whole has 134 MPs – 88 from Umno and 46 from its component parties.

Lim said if Najib was removed in a no-confidence vote, the government could have a new prime minister from Umno’s ranks and the administration could still remain controlled by Umno and BN.

Otherwise, he said the country could be administered by a caretaker government made up of parties, including the non-BN ones, with a prime minister chosen from among all the MPs, until the next polls.

“Such a national or caretaker government is unchartered waters for Malaysia. It may be feasible or otherwise, but all political parties and national players must be prepared to explore such possibilities,” he said.

Lim, who is Gelang Patah MP, also said in view of the latest developments in the country such as the continual plunge of the ringgit, there must be a special Parliament sitting in the first week of September.

He said apart from tabling the no-confidence motion against Najib, the sitting would allow a new chairman and new members to be appointed to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC), replacing those promoted to the Cabinet by Najib in his recent Cabinet reshuffle, and resume its probe into the 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) scandal.

“The 1MDB scandal has been described as a ‘one tonne millstone’ which Najib will carry with him wherever he goes. It is also a one tonne milestone for Malaysia, weighing down our economic capabilities and potential,” he said.

Lim said the Bersih 4 rallies this weekend in Kuala Lumpur, Kuching and Kota Kinabalu have come at a especially momentous time in Malaysian history.

He said it was an occasion for all Malaysians, regardless of their background and political beliefs, to acknowledge that the country was facing an unprecedented crisis, and to show their love for the nation and resolve to unite as patriots to seek a national solution in line with the fundamental liberties provided by the constitution.

“For this reason, the various government authorities should extend their full cooperation to ensure the success of Bersih 4 as a Carnival of Democracy and the salvation of Malaysia, instead of issuing threats and warnings.

“Bersih 4 participants are united in their common endeavour and commitment to peaceful and non-violent expression of support for democracy and a united Malaysian nation,” he added. – August 25, 2015

*********************

The Police already gave assurance that the motion through the augur house of Dewan Rakyat is neither criminal nor a concern by the law enforcement agency.

The legislators’ of Dewan Rakyat should exercise this right and if they truly represent the rakyat through the Westminister styled Constitutional Monarchy first-past-post-system, then they as MPs could vote to decide whether Prime Minister Najib still enjoy the majority support of Parliament.

The MPs have been given enough exposure about the controversy of the issues on 1MDB and reflect of the constituencies’  stance on the matter to decide whether Prime Minister Najib should be scandalously deposed through the proper and legal means of democracy or continue to lead the Federal Government.

It is also an opportunity to put the test of many outcomes. Whether or not Prime Minister Najib still enjoy the majority if to the total support of BN MPs. And whether or not PAS MPs would throw their support behind the Opposition pact.

Please do away with this mockery of ‘exercising basic human right on the freedom of expression’ and ‘right to assemble’. What is consistent is that BERSIH organisers then (in 2007) till present day do not possess the audacity to respect any of the authorities, even when permission to hold their demonstration have been granted, provided they adhere to the conditions.

What is the point of the dramas and circus stunts, which semi paralysed the city and inconvenience fraction of million daily commuters and dwellers in and out of the city centre and surrounding areas, who could care less about all these political stunts and clowning on the streets?

How did the first three BERSIH street demonstration changed the outcome of their political agenda?

How different is that in tactics, strategy and outcome compared to the series of Black 505 nation-wide rallies staged days after the 13GE was concluded and BN still retain a 133 majority in the Dewan Rakyat, after so much staged pro-Opposition series of demonstrations and rallies?

The fact is that BERSIH is nothing but a platform for political masturbation for these Opposition leaders and their supporters and pro-Opposition individuals masquerading behind NGOs hoodwinking innocent Malaysians with the idealism of their sordid politics.

All of these, at the inconvenience of a bigger majority within the striking range of the city centre and 20 Parliamentary constituencies within Wilayah Persekutuan and surrounding areas in Selangor.

This is not withstanding the waste of public funds through law enforcement authorities to monitor and manage these worthless political stunts and dramas in public areas (even at stadiums) and streets. Of course, there is also the City Hall extra bill for clean ups.

Worse still, it is on the weekend of Hari Kemerdekaan where they plan to invade and adulterate a venue already prepared to receive His Majesty Seri Paduka Yang DiPeruan Agong XIII as the guest of honour of the official Merdeka Day parade next Monday.

If BERSIH 4 still carry through this weekend, then it is evidently clear that the Opposition just want to capitalise any opportunity to create controversy and drama at the expense of everything even there are better and more civilised ways to realise the underlying objective.

Unless the underlying objective is to continue their sordid series of political stunts and irate the majority within the the immediate effect of gross inconvenience, at the expense of so many innocent Klang Valley commuters and dwellers, again and again.

Yet, come what may these politically-bankrupt Opposition leaders would still try to initiate a vote of no confidence.

  1. This time even Perkasa and UMNO members are to join them. This is how unpopular najib is!

    • Ya, jangan salahkan UMNO. Salahkan Najib, lain cerita. Macam macam hal Najib punca nya.

      Bersih nak demo jalanan, kalau Polis dah kata haram nak buat gitu, nak buat juga, keras kepala, alamat nak cari pasal le. Sumbatkan saja ke dlm lokap pemimpin mereka, tohmahkan, bicara, mana sabit kesalahn, sumbatkan ke penjara.

    • However unpopular Najib is, do not resort to an illegal assembly or road demo. We must never condone anything against the law or allow a situation that may turn ugly. We must condemn unwarranted acts and exhort good sense among those bent on such acts.

      I earnestly and sincerely urge the Police to take pre-emptive measures to prevent such an illegal assembly or road demo taking place. I support the idea of arresting the leaders well before the event. I also agree with the MCMC blocking the websites of those calling for and encouraging the public to take part in the event.

      I note that the Armed Forces have made a statement that they will intervene if the government declares a state of emergency and that they have been carrying out training with the police to maintain public order -http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2015/08/27/Bersih-4-Armed-Forces-emergency/

      I agree that “There are many factors that could turn a rally, however peaceful, chaotic,” And there are those who would exploit the situation to serve their own ends. So, all concerned citizens must speak up now and call for actions by the authorities that will ensure the illegal demo does not take place.

      • No preemptive arrests, assures Nur Jazlan
        Sin Chew Jit Poh – ‎14 minutes ago‎

        Nur Jazlan: There will be no preemptive arrests because we believe the rally is going to be peaceful.

        Well, maybe they have good intelligence, good assessment of the situation now. New Special Branch Director and new Deputy Director.

        The prerogative, the discretion is certainly theirs.

      • Won’t these sorts of things create tension? Bersih adamant, “Red Shirts” adaman –

        Bersih 4: ‘Red shirts’ ready to face off at rally
        The Star Online – ‎16 minutes ago‎

        KUALA LUMPUR: Despite police warning, the anti-Bersih red shirt group will carry on with their counter rally against Bersih 4 this weekend.

      • Yes, now they get emboldened –

        Bersih threatens to sue MCMC over website ban
        The Star Online – ‎1 hour ago‎

        PETALING JAYA: Bersih 2.0 has threatened to sue the Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) unless it withdraws a ban on websites that spread information on the Bersih 4.0 rally.

      • But for this bit of news, I like to borrow the kind of laughter I saw somewhere – Hahaha hohoho hihihi:

        Opposition offers to oust Najib in exchange for Anwar
        Malaysiakini (subscription) – ‎2 hours ago‎

        The opposition has offered to help BN MPs secure a new majority to topple Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak’s government in exchange for the freedom of jailed former opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.

      • Another one being emboldened by Nur Jazlan’s no-preemptive- arrest statement:

        PULAI VOTERS SHOULD SPIT ON HIM: Nur Jazlan turns Bersih 4 villain, warns anarchists out to make cops look bad
        Malaysia Chronicle – ‎1 hour ago‎

      • And they even dare to say these:

        All Umno, BN members urged to attend Bersih 4
        Malaysiakini (subscription) – ‎2 hours ago‎

      • And this doesn’t seem to jive with Nur Jazlan’s “No preemptive arrests” statement reported earlier on:

        Bersih 4: Stay away, says Nur Jazlan
        The Star Online – ‎4 hours ago‎

        PETALING JAYA: The Home Ministry has urged the public to stay away from Bersih 4 rally this weekend, as there is a high possibility that it will turn violent. Its Deputy Home Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed (pix) said that there were “anarchists” in …

      • Another one (quite confusing developments now):

        Illegal rally likely to cause chaos: Nur Jazlan
        The Sun Daily – ‎37 minutes ago‎

        KUALA LUMPUR: The Home Ministry does not rule out the possibility that there will be groups waiting to cause chaos in the Bersih 4 illegal rally planned for Friday and Saturday. Its Deputy Minister Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed said the anarchist group …

      • The Police must have been doing their job. Maybe the discussions that Maria Chin said they were going to have with the Police regarding the road blocks etc have produced results. Well done –

        Now, Bersih 2.0 says to circumnavigate Dataran Merdeka ‘out of respect’ for parade preparations

        PETALING JAYA, Aug 27 — Bersih 2.0 announced today that it will no longer be gathering at Dataran Merdeka for its fourth rally this weekend, but will instead gather around the historic field as a mark of respect for preparations for the annual Merdeka Day celebration in the city centre.

        The electoral reform watchdog chairman Maria Chin Abdullah said that they would not enter Dataran Merdeka as there are rehearsals going on for the historic event on August 31.

        “We would be meeting at 2pm in various locations before proceeding to areas around Dataran Merdeka,” Chin told a news conference here.

        “We would not be going through the places blocked by the police as well as not entering Dataran Merdeka out of respect to the rehearsals and preparation to celebrate Merdeka,” she added.

  2. The ones who should stop “hoodwinking innocent Malaysians” must be Najib and his loyal funds-recipients.

    The big difference for Bersih 4.0 is that Anwar won’t be able to hijack the event for his own political purposes.

    • Even if PM Najib could not be legally be wronged under existing interpretation of the law for accepting the ‘donation’, there are better ways doing this rather than the proposed and wheels-in-motion BERSIH 4.0 rally.

      Furthermore, to adulterate days before the formal national celebration of Hari Kemerdekaan.

      Can’t BERSIH be held last weekend or the next weekend, where it does not coincide the national official celebration of Hari Kemerdekaan?

      Initiatives like getting a million signatures for a petition to SPB YDP Agong and/or Majlis Raja Raja.

      It is a known point. There need not be any rallies required to make the rakyat even more aware of the issues, problems and magnitude to the administration and nation, from where it is already.

      It is already taken that whatever crux of the complaint, is known and being splashed in too many medium and variants of information be it on print, social media or global electronic media.

      Obviously, it is a political stunt at the expense of the country and tarnish the celebration of a significant history as a sovereign nation.

      • Excuse me.

        The main point is about “hoodwinking innocent Malaysians”.

      • The ONE who is tarnishing Malaysia is actually Najib himself.

  3. Ambiga: Leaders dish out garbage, Bersih gives hope
    Malaysiakini

    Tajuk berita itu sepatut nya:

    Ambiga: Bersih dish out garbage, BN leaders give us hope

    • korrection: BN leaders curit curit duit rakyat

  4. This woman not clever or what? Note that the High Court had in one instance said the word bodoh is not defamatory, Najib has used the word bangang and bangsat, but I’d refrain from using the word stupid for now.

    Why still talking about “reorganise its plans for the Bersih 4 rally this Saturday” when the Police have said that Bersih failed to get permission from site owners and their planned rally is illegal. No point o talk bout the road closures due to the preparations for the Merdeka Day celebrations at Dataran Merdeka as it’s immaterial to the issue.

    Is it true as claimed by Maria Chin that “We have informed the police that the 34-hour rally will go on. We are also working with them as we are not sure which of the 18 points are off-limits and how they’re going to implement the road blocks”? How come so?

    Maria said the rally participants would not disturb the ongoing Merdeka rehearsals. But isn’t that for the Merdeka celebrations organizers to say whether they would disturb or not.

    Saying “This (Bersih 4) is the people’s way of celebrating National Day” is really kudut. Because Malaysia-loving Malaysians even see them as not respecting the national day, marring the joyous and dignified occasion by unbecoming and already declared-illegal street demonstrations.

  5. I often don’t agree with Salleh Said’s views but this one I do:

    Merdeka is about love for the country, not political ideals

    Salleh Said Keruak says that for just one day, Malaysians of all races, religions and political leanings should come together as one.

  6. zahid hamidi kata mana boleh buat undi tak percaya di dewan rakyat. itu macam nak gulingkan kerajaan.
    Najib pulak kata dia di pilih dan di sokong oleh 3 juta ahli umno jadi presiden dan Bn dapat mandat pada pilihanraya yg lalu.
    so apa masalah nak takut dengan bersih..

    • Pahal pun, saya tak setuju dgn Bersih nak buat demo jalanan. Nyata salah di sisi PAA. Tak boleh diamkan depa. Kalau tak, nanti melanda landa.

      Perlu di “nip in the bud” atau “clip its wings” supaya tak boleh terbang. Jenis beri sa inci nak se hasta. Setuju, mereka memporak perandakan keadaan. Ada banyak lagi cara mengeluarkan suara dengan cara yang di benarkan undang undang.

    • on the other hand, bersih 4 by days are clearly being contimated by chinese led Dap.

      And as everybody knows Dap election itself is not bersih.

      So, i will forgo bersih 4 and opt for a bangsa Johor approach towards Najib and his boffin boys to step down.

  7. Ini contoh nya diorang tuh, dengar tuh, “at all costs”, termasuk cara haram, bahaya –

    Bersih 4 must succeed – at all costs!
    Aliran Monthly – ‎19 hours ago‎

    • apa cara “haram”??

  8. I agree with Salleh Said telling Bersih not to hijack Merdeka Day and MCMC blocking websites that encourage people to attend the Bersih event.

    It’s a non-event, as far as I’m concerned. It’s risky for peace and harmony in the country. Many have opposed the event, the Red Shirts have talked about putting out 30,000 “counter-demonstrators”, though they have called off that after Bersih said they would not go to Dataran Merdeka.

    Terrorist elements connected with ISIS are quite busy in this country – the latest report says “2 charged in KL over ISIS fund-raising, including a chef who worked in Singapore.” – ST.

    Should anything happen that causes chaotic conditions, such nasty elements would exploit the situation and it can turn racial, too.

    Good to read Bersih saying they would not breach the Police road blocks in KL – the fellow involved with hand signals leading to the breaching of the Dataran Merdeka during a previous occasion is now in prison. But there are many others around who are nasty like him.

  9. Sedap dengor yang nih, harap banyak lagi kena mcm tuh –

    Bersih website blocked ahead of rally?

    After its warning yesterday, Bersih’s website has reportedly been blocked from internet access starting late last evening. Users on certain service providers have reported being unable to access www.

  10. Najib Razak disaman oleh ahli Umno atas dakwaan melanggar Perlembagaan Umno, peruntukan-peruntukan Akta Pertubuhan 1966 dan tanggungjawabnya berdasarkan Common Law sebagai pemegang amanah Umno.

  11. >>Stop hoodwinking Bersih using streets, use Dewan Rakyat<<

    DEWAN RAKYAT is neutered… speaker sudah dapat jamban suite emas.

    PAC sudah guling..

    AG sudah pecat

    MACC sudah lingkup

    SB director sudah bersara

    sssssudah lah !!
