How many times is he going to do this???!!! He insist on his man Idris and lament that the Palace’s appointment is unconstitutional and after confronting our King(Sultan of Terengganu) he changes his stand? This is so embarrassing la… He has lost all credibility (if he had any left).

And I was always the one who defended him in discussions with my friends that though he’s not been able to perform well as our PM, he deserves another chance, based on the legacy left by the former Mahathir administration, he needed time to reform and get rid of the hardcore corrupt powerful blood suckers (the super kutus). Who else in the current UMNO elite would you rather be at the helm? Najib? No, he wants to bathe (his keris) with Chinese blood. Hishamuddin? Same Keris wielding bigot as his uncle. Ku Li? Nah, he’s past tense.

So… Mr Anwar, I’m counting down to April 15th 2008…

biaDAP?

When Lim Kit Siang of DAP issued a statement that the DAP state assemblymen of Perak will boycott the swearing in of PAS Assemblyman Mohamad Nizar Jamaludin as the Menteri Besar of Perak, he was admonished for his disrespect for HRH the Regent of Perak Raja Nazrin Shah. Mainstream daily newspapers joined in the fracas and Utusan Malaysia published

DAP biadap

13/03/2008 12:37pm


KUALA LUMPUR 13 Mac – Ketua Penerangan UMNO, Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd. Taib menyifatkan arahan DAP supaya wakil rakyatnya di Perak memulaukan majlis angkat sumpah pelantikan Menteri Besar, sebagai sungguh biadap dan kurang ajar.

Beliau berkata, DAP perlu ingat bahawa majlis tersebut adalah sebahagian daripada adat istiadat Kesultanan Perak yang bermakna jika tidak menghormatinya, maka ia menjadi satu penghinaan kepada institusi raja-raja Melayu.

DAP malam tadi mengarahkan kesemua 18 Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) parti itu di Perak memulaukan majlis angkat sumpah jawatan Menteri Besar, petang ini.

Tindakan itu diambil berikutan keputusan Pemangku Raja Perak, Raja Dr. Nazrin Shah, semalam, yang memilih ADUN Pasir Panjang merangkap Setiausaha Perhubungan Pas negeri, Ir. Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin, sebagai Menteri Besar Perak ke-10.

For those who do not understand the Malay language, a condensation of the above article:-

UMNO Info Chief, Tan Sri Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd. Taib characterizes DAP’s motion to boycott the swearing-in ceremony of the Perak Chief Minister as very rude and uncultured.

He says DAP needs to be reminded that the swearing-in ceremony is part of the royal custom and tradition of the Perak Sultanate and it would symbolize great disrespectfulness toward the Royal Malay Sultanate.

But now that the Sultan of Terengganu and also our King, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong HRH Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin has chosen BN-UMNO Kijal state assemblyperson Ahmad Said as the next Menteri Besar, suddenly all is forgotten about royal traditions and customs it seems. 22 UMNO state assemblymen openly announce that they’ll boycott the swearin-in ceremony of Ahmad Said. They also threaten to resign from their posts as state assemblymen if the Sultan does not concede to their demands, or the rakyats’ demands??? (says who?) I don’t remember the rakyat ever being consulted about the right candidate for the MB post. And what did UMNO say when DAP protested about the Perak MB appointment just 2 weeks ago?

Another article from Utusan :-

PM pertahan lantik Idris

SEPANG 23 Mac – Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi hari ini mempertahankan tindakannya melantik Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh sebagai Menteri Besar Terengganu berdasarkan sokongan majoriti Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN).

Perdana Menteri berkata, pelantikan itu tidak akan berubah kerana ia dibuat berasaskan sokongan padu yang diterima oleh Idris daripada ADUN negeri itu.

“Sebarang lantikan dibuat terhadap orang lain tidak kena dari segi Perlembagaan,” katanya kepada pemberita ketika diminta mengulas kemelut pelantikan Menteri Besar di negeri Pantai Timur itu di sini hari ini.

And this :-

Tetap sokong Idris — 23 ADUN buat pengakuan dalam pertemuan dengan PM

KUALA LUMPUR 23 Mac – Timbalan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak berkata, dalam pertemuan dengan Perdana Menteri dan Presiden UMNO Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi malam ini, 23 daripada 24 anggota Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) di Terengganu telah membuat pengakuan untuk menyokong Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh sebagai Menteri Besar.

Najib yang juga Timbalan Presiden UMNO berkata empat ketua bahagian yang hadir dalam kumpulan tersebut iaitu Kuala Nerus, Kuala Terengganu, Setiu dan Besut juga telah memberi pengakuan untuk menyokong Idris sebagai Menteri Besar.

“Ini bererti mereka berpegang pada prinsip mengikut kepada tafsiran Perlembagaan yang mereka mempunyai suara teramai dalam Dewan Undangan Negeri dan mereka akan hanya menerima Datuk Idris Jusoh sebagai Menteri Besar,” katanya kepada Bernama.

Transalation

Our PM, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi defends his appointment of Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh as the Chief Minister based on the majority support of the state assemblymen of Terengganu

He further stressed that his appoint of Idris Jusoh will not be changed because it’s based on unanimous support of all the assemblymen.

And when questioned further by journalists he reiterated his stand by saying ” Appointment of any other person (as Chief Minister) is unconstitutional.”

And in the next article quoting our DPM Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak (I will only translate the third paragraph as the initial two overlaps the previous article’s meanings)

“This means that we maintain our stand according to the principles interpreted from the constitution that they who have the majority in the State Assembly Hall shall decide the appointment and they will only accept Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh as the Chief Minister of Terengganu.”

So. Who is biadap and kurang ajar?

I rest my case.
