The Barisan Nasional-controlled Sarawak legislative assembly has suspended state DAP leader and Bukit Assek elected representative Wong Ho Leng for 12 months from the assembly starting yesterday.

wong ho lengHe was suspended on a recommendation of the state assembly’s privileges committee over a remark he made which insinuated improprieties in the the government’s financial accounts presented to the assembly in 2008.

Sixty members of the assembly voted in favour of suspending him under Section 14(1) of the Dewan Undangan Negeri (Privileges and Powers) Ordinance. Seven other objected.

Wong left the house at 6.08pm after a heated argument with speaker Asfia Awang Nassar over the procedure in the tabling of the motion to accept the recommendations from the committee of privileges to suspend him.

His party colleagues also staged a walkout in protest following Wong’s suspension.

The motion to suspend Wong was tabled by Land Development Minister James Masing and seconded by Roland Sagah (BN-Tarat).

sarawak state seat 2006 breakdown 011208After leaving the chamber yesterday, Wong told reporters he was contemplating legal action, adding that the move to suspend him was unfair and undemocratic.

“There is nothing that we can do against the decision. Might is right, but I can consider legal action,” he said.

He added that under the assembly rules, a member can only be penalised until the end of this current session which ends on Dec 31, 2009.

In his case, he has been barred from attending the assembly for 12 months until May 13, 2010.

The offensive remark that Wong was alleged to have uttered was in relation to the Supplementary Supply Bill 2008 moved by the state’s finance minister last year.

He also repeatedly used the word “camouflage” during the debate on the bill.

Of the RM921 million sought by the state government under the supplementary bill, RM900 million was allocated for the statutory fund while RM21 million for the Employees Provident Fund (EPF) bonus.

Second opposition leader to be suspended

The DAP assemblyperson was then asked to withdraw the word “camouflage”, failing which action would be taken against him. He however refused to withdraw it and was therefore referred to the committee of privileges.

At yesterday’s sitting, Wong who was given 10 minutes to speak before he was ordered out of the House, said that he should have been given a copy of the minutes of the proceedings of the select committee because he was entitled to a revision.

“Even if the House wanted to take action against me, it should be done in the last session and not carried forward to this session, and anyone who can read the standing order will understand the point,” he said.

mohammad asfia awang tengahSpeaker Asfia replied by saying that Wong had not disputed or challenged the evidence against him but instead went on to argue on the procedure of the motion.

Wong is the second opposition leader to be suspended in the House.

Last year, party colleague Chong Chieng Jen, the state assemblyperson for Kota Sentosa, was also suspended for six months by the committee of privileges on another matter.

Chong is back in the House after the the expiry of his suspension period.

Chong got another rebuff yesterday in the House when he was unable to continue reading his speech while trying to table a motion seeking better protection for native landowners in Sarawak.

As he was about to read out his text, BN members started leaving the chamber and the House was left without sufficient quorum for him to continue.

Later, the state minister in charge in resource management Awang Tengah Ali Hassan told reporters that Chong was merely trying to keep the land issue alive.

He said that the problems involving land matters have been adequately dealt with by the government.

The Republic of Malaysia?

It’s all about race, stupid!

by Raja Petra
Thursday, 07 May 2009 19:19


Raja Nazrin has just launched the debate on whether it is time that Malaysia abolishes the Monarchy and turns this country into a Republic. Yes, the Republic of Malaysia. I like the sound of that. I think I shall go along with that.


Raja Petra Kamarudin

Oh, no! Not another ‘stupid’ article from RPK. Sheesh…….it’s getting to be very boring. If it’s not about Altantuya, it’s about stupid this or stupid that.

Yes, I pre-empted what you are going to say and said it first. So there!

But that is just the thing. It is about race. And if you thought it is about anything else then you are plain dumb and deserve to be called stupid.

Oh, I forgot, I am talking about what happened in Ipoh today. And what happened in Ipoh is about race. It is about ensuring that the Malays do not lose political power. And, as far as Perak is concerned, as far as Umno is concerned, Perak has fallen into the hands of the Chinese.

Did DAP not win the most number of seats in Perak? And is not DAP a Cina-Kominis party that wishes to see the end of Ketuanan Melayu and the New Economic Policy and wishes to replace it with Meritocracy and a Malaysian-Malaysia? And is this not what Lee Kuan Yew also propagates for Singapore? And is not Singapore persecuting and discriminating against Malays? Are not Malays serving in the Singapore Armed Forces not allowed to even carry guns because the Chinese do not trust them? And is not Singapore the enemy of Malaysia who is illegally occupying Malay land that the British robbed from the Johor Sultanate?

Did PKR not win the second highest number of seats in Perak? And is not PKR a non-race-based party that wishes to see the end of Ketuanan Melayu and the New Economic Policy and wishes to replace it with Meritocracy and Ketuanan Malaysia? Are not only half the PKR Wakil Rakyat Malays while the other half are Chinese and Indians?

Did PAS not win the least number of seats in Perak? And is not PAS an Islamic party that classifies Ketuanan Melayu and the New Economic Policy as nationalism and discrimination and therefore haram (forbidden) — and does it not support DAP and PKR in opposing Ketuanan Melayu and the New Economic Policy? Is not PAS the boneka (puppet) of DAP, and although the Menteri Besar is from PAS, DAP actually pulls the strings from behind the scenes?

Yes, that is what it is all about. That is why Pakatan Rakyat must be kicked out of Perak at all costs. That is why fairness, legality and the Constitution are no longer crucial. In the fight to uphold Malay Supremacy, fairness, legality and the Constitution must take a back seat. The ends justify the means. It is not how you play the game. It is winning, by hook or by crook, by fair means or foul, that counts.

If it were in Kelantan, Umno would not have dared do what it did in Perak today. If Umno tried to do the same thing in Kelantan as what it did in Perak today, blood would have flowed on the streets of Kota Bharu. By now, Kota Bharu would be under curfew. Widows would be claiming bodies at the mortuary and new orphans would be created. The plainclothes police officers in songkok would not have been able to drag the Speaker out of the State Assembly like a drunken cowboy in a Hollywood Western movie.

Did you see how the police officers dragged Siva out of the State Assembly? I did. And they were able to drag him out in such an undignified manner because he is an Indian-Hindu from Perak. If he had been a Malay-Muslim from Kelantan, they would never have done that in a million years. They do and parangs would fly. Heads of the Umno dogs would be scattered all over the roads of Kota Bharu.

Do I sound racial? Do I sound violent? Well, I hope so. Because that is exactly what it is all about. I do not mince my words. I do not hold my punches. This column is called No Holds Barred. And my article is therefore no holds barred.

I am disappointed about today. I am disappointed not because of what Umno did. I expected that from Umno. I knew that Umno would do that. What I am disappointed about is that Pakatan Rakyat did not hold their ground. Siva was dragged out of the State Assembly like a sack of potatoes. Yet no one did anything. No one jumped in and gave those goons a hard bash on the head.

I am also disappointed because the crowd was not a crowd. The people on the ground were mostly from out of Perak. Many were Bloggers and civil society movement activists. But they were not locals. They were not Perakians. Where were the local Perakians? They were not around. If they want to argue they could not get through because of the police roadblocks, then how could all those out-of-towners get through, in spite of the roadblocks?

There should have been blood spilled, today, in the Perak State Assembly. Violence must be met with violence. There is no other way. If they want to talk, then we talk. But if they want to use violence, then we match them with violence. And they violently dragged Siva out of the Perak State Assembly.

Siva should have been allowed to exit on his feet. Instead, he was dragged and thrown out like a drunken wino. Is that how a Speaker should be treated? Well, if he were Malay that would never have happened. If it were in Kelantan that would never have happened. But because he is an Indian from Perak then it can happen. And it did happen.

And you know what the icing on the cake is? Raja Nazrin graced the whole fiasco. He gave legitimacy to the entire circus in Ipoh today. His presence gave legality to what should have been illegal. Raja Nazrin’s decision to play along with Umno has hurt the Monarchy badly. It will take a long time for the Monarchy to recover from what happened in Perak today. In fact, it may never recover.

Raja Nazrin has just launched the debate on whether it is time that Malaysia abolishes the Monarchy and turns this country into a Republic. Yes, the Republic of Malaysia. I like the sound of that. I think I shall go along with that.

That is what Perak was all about, today. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Repeat after me: It’s all about race, stupid!

Huru-hara, ciptaan Umno-BN, yang memalukan Malaysia

MB Umno ke rumah tokoh PAS

Muda Mohd Noor | May 8, 09 12:48pm
Ketika penentangan majoriti ADUN Umno terhadapnya belum reda, menteri besar Terengganu menemui seorang tokoh utama PAS baru-baru ini – membuka pelbagai spekulasi baru.

Walaupun Datuk Ahmad Said dikatakan “hanya membeli dua ekor kambing” milik ADUN Manir, Datuk Harun Taib, seorang pemimpin Pemuda PAS membuat andaian sebaliknya.

Pertemuan Ahmad dengan bekas ketua Dewan Ulama PAS itu diadakan di rumah pemimpin pembangkang itu di Kampung Kubang Lembek dekat Kuala Terengganu minggu lalu.

Harun mengesahkan Ahmad membeli dua ekor kambingnya jenis boer.
Bagaimanapun timbalan ketua Pemuda PAS Terengganu, Wan Sukairi Wan Abdullah memberitahu Malaysiakini, “tetapi saya rasa mereka ada urusan lain. Mungkin ada membincangkan isu-isu politik.”

Ahmad berdepan dengan tindakan 18 ADUN Umno yang mahu menyingkirkannya daripada jawatan itu – yang disandangnya bersama bantahan besar susulan kumpulan bekas menteri besar, Datuk Seri Idris Jusoh.

Baru-baru ini, 10 daripada ADUN pro- Idris yang memulaukan persidangan DUN pertengahan bulan lalu dengan alasan nyawa mereka terancam.

Tiga daripada mereka menerima SMS ugutan susulan ura-ura membawa usul undi tidak percaya terhadap Ahmad di persidangan tersebut.

Ketika dihubungi, Harun berkata Ahmad membeli dua ekor kambing jenis boer tetapi tidak mahu memberitahu harganya.

Ditanya sama ada mereka turut membincangkan isu politik khususnya membabitkan usaha 18 ADUN BN tersebut, Harun berkata, “kita bercakap kisah kambing sahaja.”

“Tidak eloklah bercakap pasal lain kerana Datuk Ahmad datang hendak membeli kambing,” tambahnya, yang juga timbalan pesuruhjaya PAS Terengganu.

Harun antara pemimpin PAS yang dikatakan condong kepada aliran pro-rundingan PAS-Umno seperti juga pendirian pesuruhjaya negeri Datuk Mustafa Ali dan Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

Harun bagaimanapun menambah, PAS negeri sedia berunding dan bekerjasama dengan Ahmad dan mana-mana pemimpin Umno lain.

Katanya, semasa sidang DUN lalu, beliau pernah menyebut bahawa PAS sedia berunding dengan pemimpin Umno negeri.

“Tetapi Ahmad tidak menjawab. Tapi kalau dia jawab, kita boleh berunding,” katanya.

“Kalau sungguh mereka hendak (berunding), saya sanggup bincang.”

Kesamsengan Umno-BN dalam Dewan Undangan Negeri Perak

Speaker yang sah dikeluarkan secara paksa dan kasar:

Apa sedang berlaku di Perak? (dikemaskini)


Zambry struggles for legitimacy
MAY 7 — Having been installed as mentri besar
by the palace, Barisan Nasional’s Datuk Dr Zambry
Abd Kadir would naturally expect to
run Perak smoothly. It never crossed in
his mind that he would face such big challenges.
To date he has had great difficulty convincing
the people that he is the legitimate MB and
not Datuk Seri Nizar Jamaluddin.

The noble intentions and the sweet words
alone cannot replace the people’s perception
that his government is an illegitimate one.
Like it or not he has to live with such a
tagline throughout his tenure as MB.

This is the price that he has to pay
when his party robbed a state which was
duly installed by the rakyat in the last general
election. Nizar may lose the governance but
he has managed to garner overwhelming
support from people of all walks of life,
transcending religious and racial barriers.

Since being appointed as MB, Zambry has
been struggling for legitimacy. For now
there seems to be no light at the end
of the tunnel.

His feeble attempt to depict Nizar as a traitor
did not work. The people just would not buy
his argument that by failing to resign Nizar
has been acting in defiance of the Sultan’s
prerogative powers. In fact, the people
responded to such an argument by saying
we are more comfortable with the alleged
traitor than a confirmed robber. If you can
rob a state how are we convinced that you
are not going to rob our money and our dignity.

Zambry tried in vain to kill Nizar’s lawsuit at
the infancy stage through the instrument of
the Attorney-General’s office. When the
matter was first heard before Justice
Lau Bee Lan, the A-G sought to fast
track the matter by asking the judge to
refer to the matter to the Federal Court.
What A-G did was definitely wrong as at
that time the A-G was not party to the action,
thus he had no business asking the court
to refer to the matter to the Federal Court.
Despite vehement objections by Nizar’s
lawyer, the judge, with due respect,
bowed to the A-G’s pressure and in turn
referred the matter to Federal Court.
Despite being asked to stay the referral
pending an appeal to the Court of Appeal,
the judge didn’t bother to grant an order of stay.

When the matter went to the Court of Appeal,
the latter affirmed the decision of the High Court.
Thus Nizar was prematurely forced to go to
the Federal Court. Zambry was too confident
that he would obtain a victorious judgment in
the Federal Court, thus wiping out Nizar’s suit
against him once and for all. But God was
with Nizar. The Federal Court unanimously
overturned the High Court’s decision and
remitted the matter to the High Court again.
The Federal Court judges in unison rejected
the A-G’s argument that the matter could be
referred to under section 84 of the Court of
Judicature Act as that very section dealt with
the interpretation of the Federal Constitution
whereas Nizar’s suit involved the state Constitution.

The matter went back to High Court and this
time before a new judge. Zambry was still adamant
to have Nizar’s case dismissed at the preliminary stage.
Hence the A-G played his role again. This time
the A-G objected to Nizar’s application for leave
for judicial review. Under Order 53 of the Rules of
High Court 1980, any application for leave for
judicial review needs to get leave from the court.
The application must be served on the A-G.
The A-G has the right to object. As a matter of
practice the A-G will not object unless such an
application is clearly frivolous. Nizar’s application
definitely does not belong to the frivolous category,
thus one would expect the A-G not to mount any
objection. But raise an objection was what the A-G did.

The A-G contended that Nizar was challenging the
Sultan’s prerogative power. Nizar’s suit,
the A-G argued, was in fact an attempt to challenge
the Sultan’s power through the backdoor.

On April 3, the court, in granting leave to Nizar’s
application for a judicial review against Zambry,
held that such an application was not frivolous.
The court concurred with Nizar’s lawyers that
he has passed the minimum threshold required in
the leave application.

The judgment of the court simply means Nizar
has been able to establish an arguable case
against Zambry. The judge declined to uphold
the A-G’s strenuous objection. Rejecting the
A-G’s argument that Nizar was challenging
the Sultan’s prerogative power, the learned
High Court judge held that Nizar has every
right to assert on what authority Zambry
could say that he is the lawful mentri besar
when Nizar claims himself as the legitimate
MB of Perak.

This has frustrated Zambry. Not only has
his dream that Nizar’s suit would be terminated
at the preliminary stage not materialise but
he now needs to put up a credible defence.
He has engaged a private lawyer to defend him.
Despite being unlucky in his first attempt to refer
the matter to the Federal Court, he continued
with his second attempt to fast track the suit.
He hoped to get a judgment in his favour before
the sitting of the Perak assembly today.
He desperately wanted to go to the state
assembly as a legitimate MB. Thus he needs
to be armed with a court judgment proclaiming
that he is the legitimate MB of Perak.

Once again God was with Nizar. Zambry’s
attempt to get the Federal Court hear and
dispose of the matter failed once again.
The Federal Court unanimously dismissed
Zambry’s application. Thus the matter was
remitted to the High Court.

The High Court heard the matter on May 4
and then continued on May 5 and 6. Zambry
wanted badly a judgment in his favour before
May 7. The court has not made any decision .
In fact the court wanted Nizar’s lawyer
to make a closing speech on May 7.

Umno may be proud of ultimately being able
to convene a state assembly sitting on May 7,
of course, with the aid of the police who can be
found everywhere in Ipoh.

Whether Zambry also shares the same pride
remains unclear. Without a judgment by the
court proclaiming him as a valid MB, his
presence in the state assembly today has
no beneficial meaning. For the people on
the street he is still an illegitimate MB a.k.a
a trouble maker.
