It’s Special and the queue will be Long~ ref malaysiakini

Too much politiking says a former Sarawak MP and sometimes we need to unwind. How very true and stress is one of the reasons why many politicians are having to “Pop Pills”. Today at 5.45pm he says he just received news from his daughter who was reading the Malaysiakini report breaking news at 5.45pm that http://malaysiakini.com/news/91573 Deputy Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak has qualified to stand for election as Umno president, receiving nominations from 59 divisions. So its Najib and Muhyddin past the posts who will be candidates for the UMNO General Assembly in March.

But what matters to many ordinary folks besides the political scenario is that Tuesday 21st October is a Special “TOTO” draw day. Why..? It seems that the Mega Toto 6/52 prize RM 20,209,075.08 is now carried forward to this date. Sure the queue at mosts Toto outlets would be massive. How about punting a few bucks also on the Toto 4digit Najibs 59 and Muhyddin 44 which is 5944.

The 6 digit we will have to give it to the youth numbers of Mukhriz 62 Khairy 34 and Khir 26.Give it a try who knows 623426 or 263462 a RM$1 will generate you M$100,000. Don’t forget to contribute to audie61 if you strike. What a way to unwind by indulging in a few dollars in Toto.

Are you game or has politics made you so engrossed that you don’t even have time to just sneak a few minutes at a Toto outlet. Its for a GOOD CAUSE and for a CHARITY this Tuesdays draw says an outlet owner.Try it and you will feel its worth your while………

“Party Constitution…??”

In this Malaysiakini report http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/91556 and also all over the national and local tabloids PM is under attack to move back the party polls to December.Party watchers told Malaysiakini that Abdullah could stay on as premier even if party polls were carried out in December.

Even in this report the PM hits out at Muhyddin,””The point is that there is an agreement. Why want to raise it again? Can’t wait to become deputy president. That is if there is enough support for him,” the normally cool  Abdullah shot back at Muhyiddin, who is contesting the No 2 post.” So we say, does Muhyddin know what is the constitution or rather the President’s Duties and tenure..? Sure,there is “There is nothing wrong with shifting the election back to December but will Abdullah allow that.

Firstly he has the PREROGATIVE  to call the supreme council meeting and he determines the date and the need to call for such a meeting. An emergency meeting can be called anytime if he so wishes. According to the constitution I’m sure that he holds the office for a tenure of three years unless he sooner resigns,retires,or being dismissed or becomes disqualified from holding such office. Also can Muhyddin push the present supreme council members and wield his powers to oust Abdullah by asking Najib to call for a UMNO Supreme Council. Of course,Najib can with Muhyddins blessing and more than half of the UMNO supreme council.

This was practised by Party Rakyat Sarawak Supreme Council Members and it nearly worked but unfortunately that is history. In the party constitution there are additional powers provided in that the Supreme Council shall have the power to censure the President,Deputy president,Vice Presidents and any Council members for any failure to perform their duties or acting against the interests of the party or failing to COMPLY WITH any order or direction or resolution of the party or for acting against the interest of the Party and its members PROVIDED ALWAYS that any motion of motion shall not be passed unless it receives the support or votes of the 2/3rds of the SUPREME COUNCIL meeting and PROVIDED FURTHER that if a motion of censure is passed against the President or deputy President or any party official elected by the DELEGATES

We say,PM has something locked up in the cabinet and he will unleash it if he is pushed any further. I’m sure Mahathir knows this trick too well and thats why he too is moving fast to oust the PM. If the PM starts his rounds of going down to inform the grassroots there will surely be a split in UMNO. Will Abdullah use his party position to the maximum? A man can only take that much and he needs to work out who is actually with him in the Supreme Council before he moves to remove Muhyddin or Najib or be REMOVE AND OUSTED sooner rather than later. UMNO will be hoping the warlords stick to the transitional plan as any more drastic moves will propel UMNO to suffer more than a SPLIT.

 The “MAYBE” answered by Abdullah in an unshceduled Press conference which he refers to an attempt is being made to push him out of office earlier than March is already a SIGNAL. Your guess is as good as mine.Could one of the tigers be forced down from the HILL….???

Muhyddin seems to have ‘Lighted the Fuse”

In this Malaysiakini report Muhyddin deputy president candidate seems to have losts some friends within the BN coalition partners when he said http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/91535 that there is no urgent need for Deputy BN chief post. Why just put a plug in or give himself no space for any manouvering? Muhyiddin today said the vice-president’s posts held by other BN component party leaders were good enough platforms from which they could express themselves. Has he shot himself at the foot or has he suddenly found power too hard to resist.?

 Moreover he was implicated and it was also speculated that he was slamming the transition plan when he recently said the campaign period for the Umno party elections was too long. All is not to well and Tun Mahathir has also come out and sounded with his ‘USUAL” trademark sarcastic remarks on Badawi’s needs and it really has irked the PM today.  This report from another source in Sabah has a lot of political intonations and it is solid in nature and has a very hard hitting political message by PM. It will bring with it some reactions from Tun I’m sure. We shall wait and see…..

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi lashed out at Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, whom he described as behaving like the party elections director who decides “the leaders in the Umno party and whom should be removed”.He said Umno had never needed instructions from leaders who were not in the party.“Who is Tun (Dr Mahathir) who has left Umno and trying to issue orders to Umno people which should be followed?

“He is behaving like the director for the party elections, determining so and so should hold such a position … this person should hold this position, who needs to be in the party, who needs to be removed. What right has he to do this?,” he said at a press conference at Kota Kinabalu International Airport, here tonight.

Abdullah said this when commenting on Dr Mahathir’s statement wanting Umno delegates to “remove Abdullah’s men” in the party elections in March.“Actually he wants to create changes, anger and hatred.“Is it really wrong for people to work with me. Should those people who don’t speak and don’t make noise be considered as bad people…people who have never done good for Umno and the government.

“Who is he to make such decisions. This will create hatred among Umno members, teaching Umno members to quarrel among themselves,” he said.Abdullah said he had decided not to defend his Umno presidency to avoid quarrels among party members.

“Because of the contests which normally happen especially at the top level, there will be splits. We should learn from what had happened in the past.“Such talks will raise anger among those who are considered unacceptable, (those who) must be sidelined. I consider what Tun had done had actually led to quarrels within Umno,” he said.

According to the Prime Minister, what Dr Mahathir had called for would not bring any good.“Is this the reform that we want…We have freedom, every Umno member has the freedom to contest.

“I hear that there was an attempt by someone to ask Ali Rustam (Malacca Chief Minister), who wants to contest the deputy president’s post, to withdraw … why ask Ali to withdraw? What is bad about Ali?“Let him contest and let Umno people decide whether they want Ali or otherwise,” he said.

In this matter, Umno members did not need outsiders to give orders.“It’s better for Tun not to speak at all today,” We say,could this be a direct reaction to the Mahathir telling PM to “SHUT UP”. Seems that PM is absolutely right this time round as Mahathir has resigned from UMNO and he should not meddle in UMNO party matters. Sometimes we say,”BETTER TO PLAY DUMB AND NO ONE WILL SAY YOU ARE A FOOL OR A STUPID PERSON.”

Muhyddin has actually put the cats amongst the pigeons and he will need to watch his steps as the crocodiles are about to pounce on you. An hour in politics is a long time and whatmore 5 more months. The fuse needs to be stopped or Mahathirs old guards will also be blown away. Malaysiakini and other portal sites will surely give more insights to this newest spat between Mahathir and Abdullah. Its getting interesting again………….
