Serious Blow to PM-Malaysiakini

Sarawakians Want Political Reform!

The no confidence vote taken by SAPP on the PM is a serious blow to  the BN. Of course Yong and his party can use this to further push the BN to submission. Yong said that the party needs to use this as a window of oppurtunity or else they will be forgotten by August. We say….There is too much at stake for the other parties or MPs to follow suit and we know that in Politics its a numbers game. I just came out of a bitter fight within our party PRS and this will be no different. The playing fields might be bigger but the tactics and strategies are no different. 

The war is already wage at all levels and the offensive strategy taken by PM has to be meticulous. The invading forces of Pakatan are near the castle and he needs now,” Unite BN in spirit,conserve their strength and plan the next move.” There should be nobody fleeing in the face of adversity. We keep saying,”PM knows what he is doing.” and he will be as swift as hare when the opening is ready for the treatments and his injections.

In Malaysiakini, Tricia Yeoh from the Centre for Public Policy Studies said that Sapp is a minor member of the coalition but its decision could be the tipping point for the government. “This will have a ripple effect. Public perception, both nationally and internationally, will be affected because the prime minister will be perceived as a weak leader,”

“This might provoke other lawmakers, who are equally dissatisfied with Abdullah, even those internally from the Umno party itself, to act,” she said, referring to the party which heads the coalition.The premier has refused to step down after the coalition’s worst ever election results, but he faces a major hurdle at Umno internal leadership polls in December,when dissatisfaction could bubble over.

We do agree as Lim Kit Siang in his blog painted a clearer picture and the PM still commands the government of the day. The speaker to fall sick……? and deputy takes over..?   Highly unlikely..Both were handpicked by PM.

But will the bombshell land in Parliament on Monday ?

With the ruling coalition commanding unbroken two-thirds parliamentary majority in the 11 general elections since Merdeka in 1957 until the recent political tsunami of the March 2008 general election, there had never been any no confidence motion against the Prime Minister in Malaysian parliamentary history.

The Parliamentary Standing Orders do not have special provision for a no confidence motion.

In the circumstances, a no confidence motion may be regarded as an ordinary motion under Standing Order 27 which requires notice of 14 days to be given – making it impossible for such a no confidence motion to be tabled on Monday, June 23, 2008 as the earliest would be July 2 if the no confidence motion is submitted today.

Standing Order 18 which allows an MP to move a motion to adjourn the House to discuss a definite matter of urgent public importance will be inappropriate and unhelpful as it only allows one hour debate on the specified issue without any vote being taken at the end of the debate.

The only way for a no confidence motion to be tabled and debated on Monday is for the Speaker ito treat it as a substantive and extraordinary motion which should take precedence and priority over all parliamentary business which does not need to comply with the requisite 14-day notice and publishing it as the first item of parliamentary business after Question Time in the Parliamentary Order of Business on Monday.

In doing so, however, the Speaker is likely be in direct loggerheads with the government of the day and must be prepared to pay the consequences of such decision.

I see little possibility of SAPP’s No Confidence Motion against Abdullah as Prime Minister being tabled and debated on Monday unless there is a second political tsunami in the next few days, with waves of support from other Barisan Nasional MPs from Sabah, Sarawak and Peninsula Malaysia making it a credible parliamentary move.

tengku razaleigh forum 260408 ku li speakingWe say BN is not yet ready to throw in the towel and the strategies which PM practises will be the truth and will all be brought out no matter who is involved as he tries to stay on to power at least until December. Are you so sure that he will not go beyond that…? His immediate tasks are to counter Tengku and his UMNO faithfuls and to a lesser extend Mahathir eventhough he is out of UMNO. Anwar is still outside his castle and PMs arrows are rightly “poised and positioned.” 

Will Umno’s general  assembly  be “Tengkus or PMs Battle of Waterloo.” which has been scheduled to be held from Dec 16 to 20,and  where they will be some keen contests expected for the top positions. Ku Li has upped his tempo by telling Sabahans that he has no problem accepting a Sabahan to contest the deputy and vice-president’s posts. The quota is simple and Ku Li has hedged his bets here as he knows “dangling  the carrot” to UMNO Sabah will see one of their own being made a Deputy President if KU Li wins.

UMNO Sabah members aligned to Tengku who will wage this bitter battle has got SAPP moving to fight the little wars. Anyway June 18th 1815 was the start of the decisive battle. What a coincidence…!!

    Kit Siang knows..Yong Teck lee Knows. Of course PM knows.PM is still saved by the skin of his teeth but the battle of Waterloo as you called it has alrady begun. Mahathir though out but his previous soldiers and generals are battered and most of them has broken legs and haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaads..!! Tengku wants to use Muyhiddin and Johor but we still feel that PM will get out of this bruised but OK<> READ MY LIPS.

    Bravo! Bravo! Bravo! to you Datuk Yong Teck Lee and your party SAPP. SAPP made a good and smart decision. Keep on fighting and we will always support you and SAPP from behind.

    BN has over stayed it’s welcome, but I don’t know PR is any better. I hope Datuk Yong won’t join PR since sabahans need to support a local party who is looking after the state’s interest. I bet you when all the dust settles, and PR forms a new govt, we are no better off. Our cause will be just an old promise…

    We don’t another colonial power(BN)! So, we need to form an east malaysian block.

    SAPP can try it’s best. Sabah is rotting for the last few decades so what is there to lose for the people there. But SAPP must play it’s cards right. They must get more MP to join them better still can get MP also from Sarawak. If that sleepy head don’t go there is a chance he may increase the price of petrol and diesel again this year and that will cause further hardship to the population

    WHAT EVER IS SAID AND DONE, THE RAKYAT CAN SEE, HEAR, READ AND LOOK FOR THEMSELVES, ABOUT THE WAY THIS COUNTRY IS BEING GOVERN. NO MORE LIES LIES LIES . ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

    THIS IS THE TIME FOR ALL THE RAKYAT TO COME FORWARD AS ONE MIND AND START PRESSURING THE MP’S(BN-BARANG NAIK PARTY) TO STOP THEIR SUPPORT FOR BN.

    WELL DONE SAPP, YOU ARE A TRUE HERO OF THE RAKYAT, THE FORCE SHALL BE WITH YOU, JUST WAIT FOR “DART VEDAR” “DSAI AND PR” TO COURT YOU ALL THE WAY TO TRUTH ITSELF.
