PAS Hadi “Fighting for Political Survival”

Oh No, PAS President is at it again. What will happen to PAS in GE14 is anyone’s guess.acawat1

It does seem that he is at his best when his back is at the wall as he makes this political statement to try to coax Barisan Nasional leaders to accept him and the party into the BN fold.

Will Sarawak leaders accept him and the party with open arms? He has yet to make amends on his “CAWAT” INSINUATION way back in 2009.

Even MP Salang and PRS Secretary General said this,””He pointed out that Sarawakian   MPs objected to the bill because it is an opposition bill tabled by Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, who has few fans in the state.

“During the Batang Ai by-election in 2009, he said we were still wearing cawat. Later, he accused Christians of converting Muslims. Things like that do not speak well of him as a person and a leader. So when he tabled a bill like this, how can I be certain that he meant well?” said Salang.

This is extracted from Rakan Best Nye Page: “Apologise first PAS President Hadi. We in Sarawak always live in peace,harmony, eat,shop, no segregation and enjoy together. 

We dont want PAS in Sarawak.
Don’t try to say this for your convenience. “PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang says Malaysians can learn from Sabah and Sarawak, where the two states’ diverse peoples have lived in harmony for so long.”

Is Hadi making the right calls or is he trying to get back the sympathy from the opposition front ,making PAS relevant while backstabbing the Barisan Nasional Coalition at the last minute?He has something up his sleeves and political parties within the BN are watching closely with hawks eye and waiting to  pounce.

BN Sarawak can do without PAS assistance as it goes to win the seats in Sarawak for GE14

PKR “Mas Gading wants Liow Tiong Lai.??”

PKR P192 Cabang spokesman Boniface Willy Anak Tumek wants Liow Tiong Lai to show more commitment to Bau than his statement after Bersih 709 regarding the Tung Shin Hospital.

Willy  in a Press conference at the Stampin office attended by journalists from all the major tabloids in the city issued a three page statement which calls for additional beds and improve facilities to meet the medical health and growing populace of Bau district.

Presently Bau has a population of 42775 from the lasts count and the hospital has only 68 beds which is diabolical.

Bau hospital needs to be upgraded to serve the rakyat. He even said,”the people of Bau are saying that they have been loyal”fixed deposit” supporters of the BN Government and giving them will be one fitting and meaningful way for the government to reciprocate and reward them for their fervent and untiring support.

The people call for the Federal Minister of Health to take immediate and appropriate actions so that they will have more beds to accomodate the increasing population of Bau.

Willy has this for the Health Minister ,”come and spend more time in Bau and you will love it more than Tung Shin Hospital.Surely,this will enhance your image and leave the police to handle their wrongdoings.”

BAU AWAITS YOUR ARRIVAL…..

Ong “Hornets Nests…Did they Sting you..??”

Natasha of audie61 could not help to ask MCA President Ong Tee Keat,”Have you been stung..?” He has stood on too many “TOES” and thats why there is an incessant pressure on his Presidency. Ong is not a person to “TOE THE LINE” and in many ways its also good for his leadership qualities and credibility but thats not the WAY MALAYSIANS are used to. Our way is quietly,deadly but assured of handling problems with solutions and not picking on too many “HORNETS NESTS

This article from internet portal  Malaysiakini 

Despite the torrent of blows to his leadership, MCA president Ong Tee Keat today took on a combative position in his opening address to the 56th MCA annual general meeting.

Taking pot shots at his party rivals, he also hinted that he would defend his post during the March 28 polls for the central committee in order to fulfill his party reform agenda.
mca agm 070310 ong tee keat 03According to Ong, even though the new central committee will be elected towards the end of the month, its members’ term, in accordance with the party constitution, will end in 2011.
He said that this leaves him with a one year window period to “follow through” with his “path of reforms”, thereby signalling his intention to defend his post.
Observers, on the other hand, see his former deputy Dr Chua Soi Lek as the front-runner in the contest.
We will have reelections on March 28, which is only one year before the 2011 party polls. I hope, in this one year, our party will do everything it can to move forward and it must complete the reform agenda.
“When I was in the hospital, there are people who said that I am not only suffering from pain on my leg, but also my heart. However, despite the pain, I must continue with this path.
“I have walked (this path) yesterday, and today. Tomorrow, I must do the same. There is only one more year to fulfill the reforms. I must follow through with this path of reforms,” he said.
Ovation for Ong

mca 56th agm front image 02This was met by thunderous applause from the 603 delegates present, who rose to their feet for close to a minute.

Ong again drew an eruption of applause when he said he did not care about his detractors nor about his fate as the party president.
“If you think about it, if I was so concerned about my post, then there would have been no need to disturb so many hornets’ nests,” said Ong, in reference to his attempts to probe the Port Klang Free Zone scandal.
Ong today defended his reform agenda but admitted that he was too hasty, thus making enemies with those with vested interest.
“Reforms cannot be accomplished overnight. It must go through a period of pain. The leader of the reforms can fall at the slightest mis-step. At the slightest mis-step, he can become the enemy of all.
“Perhaps I was too hasty with reforms. Thus, I again extend my apologies to all my comrades… We all have different opinions, but we must have the sense of camaraderie. Let’s not treat ‘him’ as the enemy.”
Ong said all reforms undertaken will be witnessed by the masses and it must be carried out to fulfill the wishes of the party members, the public and to uphold democracy.

“One Way Ticket..”

Joey received an sms from her source in MCA ,” Fresh polls only way to solve. Many say its a one way ticket.Statement from PM Najib already out. Check out article.Usual MCA stuff. ”

Joey took the cue, reposts it and sang it out loud on this beautiful Sunday evening ,” One way ticket to …………………………”

Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak said today MCA leaders have agreed in principle to hold fresh party elections.

The prime minister said, however, that they needed time to submit their resignation letters to enable the polls to be held.

“The MCA is aware that it has to resolve the conflict (within the party) in a specific time frame. If it cannot be speeded up, it should not be delayed too much,” he said after attending the fifth workshop in a series on the National Key Result Areas (NKRAs).

Najib said the MCA had not set a specific time frame for its leaders to submit their resignation letters for the fresh elections to be held.

“The leaders are still discussing to get a consensus among them. The fact that they have not submitted their letters of resignation does not mean they will not do so some time in the future.

“It all depends on the understanding that they can reach in due course. The only thing left is the timing of the elections in the MCA. But the principle of having an election is accepted,” said Najib, who is also the BN chairperson.

The prime minister was asked to comment on claims that certain MCA leaders were reluctant to resign to enable the party elections to be held in the effort to resolve the leadership conflict in the party.

Asked on the latest developments in the MCA, Najib said there had been no developments and he was waiting for the next move of the party’s leaders.

Those who think that the Dec 5 MCA AGM was postponed as part of the PM-brokered peace accord is as wrong as those who thought Ong Tee Keat and Chua Soi Lek could never work together.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

By I Love Malaysia

The fact is neither Ong Tee Keat nor Chua Soi Lek met the PM who had returned to Malaysia (after a week-long overseas tour of duty), 16 hours before the MCA Central Committee met and decided to postpone the AGM date. Besides, OTK was too busy shuttling between Hospital Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia and his home to nurse his stomach ailment, sustained from stress and irregular dietary pattern during Malaysia’s intense campaigning for a seat in the International Maritime Organisation in London recently.

Besides, those who thought Ong Tee Keat care about Umno must have forgotten how he took on powerful forces in PKFZ which has enrichened some of the most powerful Malays of this millennium.

The fact was, it was all systems go for the meeting, and the party CC took the drastic decision to postpone the meeting 48 hours before the AGM was due. The Special Branch and millitary intelligence have reverted to PM Najib asd his cousin Hishammuddin Hussein that certain quarters had planned to create chaos on Dec 5.

This message was confirmed and re-communicated by PM and DPM to MCA secretary-general Wong Foon Meng at the Bunga Raya Complex in KLIA the night before the CC meeting (http://www.thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2009/12/2/nation/5220483&sec=nation). Wong immeidately rushed to relay the message to OTK.

OTK was informed that the “Wah Kee” triad members from Pahang, Selangor and Perak had been mobilised to stir trouble on AGM Day, in the presence of Najib, the DPM and BN component leaders as well as representatives from the Chinese community. The booing and jeering would begin as soon as OTK stepped into Dewan San Choon in Wisma MCA. And the rabble-rousers would continue to stir trouble the moment OTK delivers his presidential address in a calculated move to embarrass him in front of the PM.

And after the PM leaves, the chair-throwing would begin and pepper-spray war would commence, runing whatever little left of MCA’s tattered reputation. And no way in hell would OTK allow that to happen under his watch – again.

In 2001, when he was the MCA Youth chief, a group of gangsters had done similar things in what is now known as the 803 Incident, named after the August 3 fracas (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jnFpq4k_EIM). Then, anti-OTK MCA members threw chairs, blew whistles, threw stink bombs and even staged a bomb hoax to disrupt proceedings because they were angry that OTK had gone against Ling Liong SIk in the MCA purchase of Nanyang Press Holdings Bhd.

Fast forward eight years and the modus operandi remains, and one of the two main perpetrators remain. Three nights before the MCA Youth AGM, a dinner was held in Overseas Restaurant in Imbi hosted by former Federal Territories Parliamentary Secretary Yew Teong Look, the man instrumental in staging 803.

The anti-OTK man was distributing whistles and mapping out strategies to do a repeat of 803. The Special Branch had gotten wind that the rabble rousers had even planned to switch off the Wisma MCA main power source at the AGM official opening while the PM was there to discreedit OTK- something Najib’s security team could not compromise on. (The other mastermind of 308 was Hang Chin Pheng, who had receded into the background of MCA poilitics.)

The plan to use violence is strongly backed by MCA Youth chief Wee Ka SIong who has asked his machai Chong Sin Woon (who is under the payroll of Datuk Ng Bong Ching, a beneficiary of Liow Tiong Lai’s Health Ministry projects) to play a role. Chong, who harbours hopes of becoming WKS’ political secretary, has been told to convince delegates from MCA Youth to stay away from the meeting. In their absence, their MCA ID cards, which grants them entry into Dewan San Choon, will be given to the thugs to do their magic.

To avert all this and in order not fall into the trap laid by the WKS-led faction, OTK instructed CSL to postpone the MCA AGM. The postponement will buy him enough time to not only stage the Mother of All Comebacks, but also tigthen the noose around the dissidents.

“Too Afraid To Step Down”

Natasha received an sms  from a former colleague,” Afraid lah Ong group..!! Not willing to step down.” Uncle Chua says the constitution clearly stipulates that there must be 20 elected CC members must resign, in order for fresh polls to be held. So backs on the wall for Liow group.”

 The whole article we reposts from an internet portal for you all to make your own judgement:-

The first MCA special committee meeting to look into details of fresh party polls ended with the committee chairperson Dr Chua Soi Lek saying that there may be no new elections at all.

NONEChua, also the party deputy president, told reporters after the hour-long meeting this morning that there were too many technical and legal issues involved for fresh elections to be held.

“The possibility (of not holding fresh polls) is very high,” he said when asked to comment on the issue.

Among the hurdles he cited are the unwillingness of central committee (CC) members to resign and the tenure of the new leadership if fresh polls are held. Another question is whether fresh polls should involve Youth and Wanita leadership.

While the committee could not make any decision today, it has directed the party’s lawyers to look into legal issues to make sure that any decision that it makes later will not breach the constitution.

Chua said the lawyers have been asked to submit their feedback later this week, after which the committee will meet again. This will be one of two meetings it will hold before making a final decision.

He also said that only 13 CC members, including himself, are willing to resign to pave the way for fresh polls, but did not reveal their names.

The constitution stipulates that 20 elected CC members must resign, in order for fresh polls to be held.

mca liao faction briefing penang 221109 liow tiong laiVice-president Liow Tiong Lai, who leads one of the three feuding factions, had previously said that 13 CC members from his faction are ready to resign.

Last Wednesday, the MCA CC meeting decided to postpone its annual general meeting – scheduled for last Saturday – to another date to allow the party to decide on the fresh polls.

A special committee headed by Chua was formed to look into the date and manner of the fresh elections.

Liow’s faction had sought for new elections to be held within 60 days but both Chua and party president Ong Tee Keat said they prefer a date after March next year.

‘Fresh polls without contesting’

Chua today reiterated that although the party crisis must be resolved as soon as possible through fresh polls, no deadline should be imposed on the CC to resign.

“Nobody should be talking about deadlines in January,” he said.

NONEChua also said that “fresh polls without contesting” would be the best way to end the impasse, but did not elaborate on the suggestion.

Liow, a member of the special committee, maintained that it will ultimately recommend fresh elections. He said his supporters are trying to convince the other CC members to resign.

“I don’t want to say much… Too many statements will affect our effort,” he said before leaving the party headquarters.

In the 2002 party polls, candidates for key posts were nominated and won without any contest. This was after then premier and Barisan Nasional head Dr Mahathir Mohammad brokered a ‘peace plan’ to end the infighting in MCA.
