Khairy Jamaluddin said his campaign for Youth chief is being sabotaged by certain quarters who are stopping members from meeting him.

King and politics, ball is in the royal court

King and politics, ball is in the royal court

It appears that the public now seems to think that the Yang di-Pertuan Agong should intervene to put certainty and order back in the country. Some quarters however felt that such is not desirable, arguing that it is not appropriate to get the king involved in it. 

Apparently this view fails to take into consideration various facets of the king’s role and functions under the constitution. On top of that the intervention seems the only available option given that the prime minister has already refused to consider, let alone allow, the convening of parliament to see whether he still has the majority behind him.

Lim Kit Siang � Blog Archive � Emergency Umno Supreme Council meeting - for the sake of Abdullah or Malaysia?

Lim Kit Siang � Blog Archive � Emergency Umno Supreme Council meeting - for the sake of Abdullah or Malaysia?: "Today’s emergency UMNO Supreme Council meeting, second in a week, exposes Umno in a white-heat crisis to Malaysians.

There were all sorts of rumours last week, including the quite “unbelievable” one (which I mentioned in my blog) that Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had been given up to Sept. 26 to step down as Prime Minister - although nobody was able to explain why Sept. 26 as the deadline for at least a clear-cut announcement of his retirement intention rather than the more believable Oct. 9."

Ruling Party Postpones Elections | My Sinchew

Ruling Party Postpones Elections | My Sinchew: "KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia's prime minister says the ruling party has postponed the elections to elect its leaders from December to March.

The decision by the United Malays National Organization comes amid calls by dissidents in the party for Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to step down earlier than his deadline of 2010

Abdullah told reporters Friday (26 Sept) that postponing the elections will allow him to leave office early. He did not elaborate.

He also did not say if he will contest the post of party president in March. Traditionally, the UMNO president becomes the prime minister. (AP)"

New Plan A Bad Deal For Pak Lah

The Malaysian Insider: "New plan a bad deal for Pak Lah
KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 26 - If the Umno Supreme Council endorses the new transition deal this morning, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi will announce that he will not seek re-election as president but will continue to head the party for at least eight months more until the elections are held.

Judging by behind the scenes discussion over the past 48 hours, there is every reason to believe that the council elders will fight for the plan, which involves postponing elections from December till May or June next year, and Abdullah handing over the reins to Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak then.

Still, selling the idea of postponing the party polls to the rank and file is not going to be a walk in the park for council members. Many branch and division leaders have expanded a lot of resources and funds on galvanizing their supporters. Having to go through the same expensive process in a few months' time is not going to be an attractive option for them."

Marina Lee Abdullah = Courage

This is Mdm Marina's letter to the followers of Malaysia Today. The government has committed a serious blunder for their arrest of Raja Petra Kamarudin. The government is simply making the people angrier by their action.

Again I shall state that I may not always agree with RPK's opinions but nobody should treat any person that way. Can't resolve matters with him? Easy, throw him in the lock-up. There, problem solved. This method of seize and control can no longer be applicable. People aren't simple-minded as before. People today are more educated and exposed to the ways of the world. However do bare in mind that I'm referring to West Malaysia where the people are more advanced in development and education. Whereas back here in Sabah, we're still struggling to keep up with the pace set by West Malaysia.

To those who has only visited Kota Kinabalu, please be informed that interior Sabah is the exact opposite of that. I wish I can find authentic photos to post up here. Hmmm... perhaps I could but I have to retrieve them later. Once I have them then I shall write a bit about poverty in Sabah.

Anyway, going back to RPK. My admiration for the man has increased. He believes in a cause, stands by it and stays with it. This man can easily enter politics and win a seat in Parliament. But we all know he's not into those kind of thing. Once I have the time I shall grow through his archives and find that particular article on why he won't be a politician. He is more effective being editor of the influential Malaysia Today. We need him there as a balancing force in the future government.

Since we're all here, I just want to share some stories what I heard yesterday. These are merely rumours that I've heard so it could be true or not true. So take everything I say with a pinch of salt;I heard that the Sabah state government is facing a critical situation whereby the component parties' members are very unhappy with CM Musa Aman's decision to retain Raymond Tan as DCM. Especially after Raymond declared himself as being a BN Independent and not forming nor joining any other party. We all know that. Some of it came out in the papers. However, have you ever wondered the true reason why Raymond is asked to stay on? Rumours says that he is currently overseeing Musa's project and still needs him around. There's also curiousities going around why is that Musa's cabinet ministers are mostly either from his hometown Sandakan and the areas near there? Find out the details for yourself. I think I've said enough already. Besides, this posting is suppose to be about Mdm RPK.

Anyway, enough already from me and here is her letter;


 First Time To Kamunting Detention Centre

By Marina Lee Abdullah

This morning my family and I went to Kamunting to visit Pet. This being our first time there we left home 6am just to make sure we don't miss the schedule time allowed : 8.30am to 2pm and the family is allowed weekly visits from Monday to Wednesday, Friday to Sunday. We brought some food, fruits, drinks, one pair of jeans, t shirt and his glasses.

When we reached the gates of the Kamunting Detention Centre, we had to register at the gates and proceeded into the prison area, a huge area. There we had to go through another gate and had to deposit all our belongings into two lockers. Went through a door and told to go to counter 10. When we approached counter 10 there was this partition with no grills or glass, Pet was already sitting there waiting for us.

My first reaction was to run and give him a real big hug and kiss, at the same time my heart feeling so heavy seeing this hero of mine on the other side. Pet was sitting down and wearing white prison clothes. He has lost weight, looked very pale probably not seeing sunlight for almost 2 weeks now, his beard and hair growing longer.

At that point I had tears in my eyes but was trying really hard holding back my tears. I really did not want him to see me cry that would only make it really hard for him. I reached out to hold and rub his hands and did not let go for a minute. He was glad to see us because the last time we saw him was 8 days ago at Bukit Aman.

I asked him how he was coping and he said hard being under solitary confinement and it is for 3 months and after that only will he be able to interact with the other detainees. He will be moved into a dormitory where he will get to watch TV and  read newspapers, New Straits Times and Utusan Malaysia.

He said he had 3 ustaz ( religious teacher) visit him this morning questioning about his religious knowledge and beliefs. The questioning was cut short cause of the family visit and would continue in the afternoon.

I told him to please be strong and don't let them get to him. I said "Honey they have got your body but not your mind and soul, hang in there love we've coming to get you. The Pakatan Rakyat is on track to takeover the government. Just give us a bit more time, ok?"

I told him that this time around there is a difference on the use of ISA and that he had made that difference. There is tremendous outcry on the use of ISA and that Political Parties within the Barisan Nasional, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim the Law Minister had even resigned for the use of the ISA, the thousands of well wishes and support I have received. People all over are praying and standing behind us on this struggle for change that he has started.

I promised Pet that I will do everything I possibly can with the help of the people to get him released and I will stay strong and tough to keep that promise. I will not fail him.

He told me that word was out at the detention centre that RPK was there, and some of them manage to shout out to him across the brick wall telling him that they just saw him and his wife on TV. They were also trying to comfort him.

At one point I told him that I really needed to hug and that missed him so much and was reaching out to do that but he said he was not allowed to because there we two prison officier watching us and they were noting down everything and there were merits points given or taken away. I said "what's that?" He said that there were certain rules for our visitation and if he break the rules visitation rites could be reduced and so on. I asked him, "you mean to say that giving you a hug is breaking the rules?" He said hugging is considered "kelakuan tak senonoh" improper or unbecoming behavior. I just could not believe it.

He then said that the first visit is the only time we are able to meet face to face and the subsequent visit will be through a screen and will have to talk on the phone. This will be for 9 months and of cause with good behavior from him. They go on merits he said like kindergarden school if you have behaved you get a candy.

He told me that he is being detained on 4 grounds,

  1. 2 articles on Islam
  2. The article on 'Let's Send the Altantuya Murderers to Hell"
  3. Articles on the Leaders
  4. Comments posted on the Blog, one of the commentor he mentioned was by Anti Anti-Hadith and Pet mentioned that he has his own Blog.


By then we were given the last 5mins call, I then told him, "Luv please trust me, we will get you out!"

Dear readers thank you so much for the well wishes that my family and I have received from all of you and I will stay strong with your help and support to take on this fight for change where my husband has left off until he is FREED.

Lots of love from my family and me

By Wong Chin Huat, The Nut Graph

MINISTER of international trade and industry Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin says Umno needs to reform or it, and by extension the Barisan Nasional (BN), may perish by 2013.

He is spot on, but what kind of reforms does Umno need to undertake? What has gone wrong with Umno and the BN?

For people like Muhyiddin, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and most critics of prime minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, the problem is the individual in power. Change the person in charge, and the party will rejuvenate. Nothing can be changed without a change in leadership first.

This writer begs to differ.

The electoral one-party state that Umno has built and defended virtually since Independence is the disease, the leadership only its symptom."
