WILL THE KING PLAY THIS CARD..? ~ Malaysiakini

Malaysiakini portal has the comprehensive report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/89522 on this subject PKR vice-president R Sivarasa said ,” fresh elections would be held within six months to a year of the alliance gaining control of Parliament. This is done to dispel any worries that the government is unethical or undemocratic and will do a world of good for the new government in question. Fresh Polls .? Who calls the shots..? It really is going to happen by looking at the “mood of the country” as a whole as Abdullah cannot expect to carry on with the crossovers/migrations/hoping and defections of MPs hanging over his administration. What does he do then..? After 916 has gone by,there will still be other dates as an political analyst was quick to point out because of the BN “Taiwan agricutural field trip” 

The following are excerpts  from Malaysiakini which should be sufficient to answer many questions. We ask will the AGUNG as the KINGMAKER used the prerogrative to apply this ruling for the benefit of the country and the rakyat as a whole.? The stage is thus set for a fresh polls GE13 don’t you think..?

According to Malaysian law, the king has the right to accept and formalise any new government that can show proof of sufficient mandate in Parliament. Alternatively, he could order fresh general elections, provided the prime minister – either outgoing or incoming – recommends it .

“We don’t agree it is undemocratic because our federal constitution, under article 48, does not allow an MP to resign. So if they want to shift, the only way is to cross over. This rule is put in by the Barisan itself. But having said that, we also recognise the importance to reaffirm the mandate from the people,” said Sivarasa.

“We don’t mind even if the king calls for dissolution of Parliament, that’s up to him. But we would be the new caretaker government and we will go into fresh elections making sure that it is as fair and clean as possible,” he added.

Under Article 48(6), MPs are barred from taking office for five years if they resign. Because of this technicality, only MPs who wish to retire from office resign, whereas MPs who only wish to change parties would be forced to cross over.

    How to have a GE 13 again?

    The election commission is still not fair yet and it was confirmed by the electoral roll they use for the Permatang Pauh by election.

    A lot of people are saying if the GE 12 had been fair, BN would have been WIPE OUT!

    Why not give a try?? If u think Malaysian really supporting Pakatan Rakyat.. why must u afraid of Election Commission.

    Permatang Pauh election showed Anwar’s won although there were BN manipulation, and he still get the mandate. Let’s people decide which party they want.

    It’s more ethical compare to buy MP’s and now desperate go to Taiwan to get faith. Sound funny..
    By doing this way.. what’s a difference between PR and BN.. buying froggies.

  3. Eagle has landed says:

    Yeah!…. it is time to wipe them out. lets have a new election, hopefully Pak LAh will be trapped into this game plan. At the moment it really hurts PM with so many unfavorable call and insubordination from within and outside his party. To make thing worst his no. 2 is pretending and tagging along playing shadow boxing with no. 1 as punching bag. Hey….wake up Mr. PM.

    I bet my last dollar, BN will not call election.

    If an election is called, there will be windfall for the voters as massive vote buying will take place, failing which most BN Politicians will be wiped out.

    So fellow malaysians, your vote is not worth only $50.00 to $200.00. It is worth 1,000 to 10,000 times or even more.

    Do not accept anything less!!!!

    For every $50.00 spent, the potential to earn much more than that is there and this is evident everywhere and right in front of your eyes. You do not even have to wear specs to see it.

    Alternatively, take the money and tell the Politicians we are not cheap skate. Show you are worth much more at the ballot boxes.
