Malaysian politics has become a hodgepodge of unreliable parties and egoistic narcissists, seriously lacking the qualities of once respectable leaders of society. Any Ahmad, Ah Seng or Samy can just come up with this or that party and claim to be fighting for the ‘rakyat’ @ citizens when they are really, all out to fatten their wallets and feather their nests. Each time any politician starts uttering the word ‘rakyat’ in their speech, alarm bells start going off in my mind. Oh! Oh! here comes another fib or bullshit disguised as a promise to help relieve the people of their present miseries.
Who has really delivered in his or her promise to Malaysians, lately? I remember Rina Harun use the word ‘rakyat’ during the 2018 campaign so frequently, that it made me cringe with disgust. After the PH won and took power, she was quick to take care of her own needs ~ self-make-over! Even after the PH collapsed, and the PN emerged under Mahiaddin as the 8th PM, the country saw a new ‘Rina Harun’ emerge in the limelight. Is this what the people get? Bloody humbug!
It’s purely self-interest. Malaysians keep getting screwed, by all these self-centered brutes. What future is there for the common people when shameless opportunists put up a grand performance at every political rally only to dupe us all when they get to squeeze their fat arses, into the seats of power. So, please spare us the bullshit that you are there to serve us, the voters, and citizens of Malaysia. We can see through all the melodrama and theatrics, you perform every now and then, to fool us.
The Pakatan Harapan Coalition Government comprising of the PKR-DAP-PAN-PPBM collapsed when Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad resigned as Malaysia’s 7th PM in 2020 after the Sheraton Move took place.
The Sheraton Move came after a ‘heated ‘discussion’ took place between Tun Dr. Mahathir and leaders from the PKR, DAP, PAN and PPBM. Notable outbursts are from Syed Saddiq, Radzi Jidin and Azmin Ali, who disagreed with the others pressuring Tun Dr. Mahathir to quit as the 7th PM and hand over power to PKR President Anwar Ibrahim as agreed when they first formed Pakatan Harapan and chose Tun Dr. Mahathir as their candidate to be the PM if they win in the 14th GE in 2018.
When the Pakatan Harapan Government collapsed following Tun Dr. Mahathir’s resignation, Anwar’s dream of becoming the 8th Malaysian PM, evaporated just like all his earlier attempts. It’s considered simply ludicrous to keep oneself getting played out times after the umpteenth time like what Anwar keeps getting suckered by the wily old man. Stupid!
In a way, Tun Dr. Mahathir has saved Malaysia from falling into the clutches of Anwar Ibrahim, the strong and ardent supporter of the Zionist regime and illegal State of Israel. Thank you Tun! We can’t repay you enough for your great deed!
When Tun Dr. Mahathir tendered his resignation as the 7th Malaysian PM, Malaysia’s 16th Supreme King, HRH, the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, Al Sultan Abdullah ibni AlMarhum Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah, had no choice but to accept Tun’s resignation as the man was adamant.
His Royal Highness then duly appointed Tan Sri Muhyiddin @ Mahiaddin Haji Yassin as the 8th Prime Minister since he had the backing of the majority of the MPs then.
So, the world witnessed Mr. Play It Safe @ Tan Sri Muhyiddin ~ Mahiaddin Hj Yassin step up to the plate and seize the excellent opportunity to be 8th Malaysian Prime Minister.
As I see it, the lack of anti-party-hopping laws here in Malaysia, is the root cause for the constant collapse of the ruling state or federal governments. Nowadays, every politician here in this country enters politics for one reason only. That is to enrich oneself and gain fame and fortune. Any talk about fighting for the people or the nation is mere hogwash. Do not believe such lies. They don’t give a rat’s ass about anyone or anything but their own interests.
Have you come across any struggling, poor, Malaysian politician? Chances are you haven’t.
The advent of the COVID 19 pandemic seems to be a blessing in disguise for PM Mahiaddin Yassin. He got the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong to declare a State of Emergency over the whole Federation w.e.f. the 11th of January 2021 till the 1st of August 2021. This Emergency has also suspended the Malaysian Parliament from sitting.
PM Tan Sri Mahiaddin Yassin has thus, secured his fragile Perikatan Nasional Federal Government from any coup or walkovers by any of the current Members of Parliament. Everyone thought that the MP from Pagoh was just another obedient ‘Yes Man’. Hehehehehe. How he has surprised every critic including the Godfather of Malaysian Politics. The Never Say Die Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. Mahathir seethes and complains that Mahiaddin lied to him. Hahahahahaha…
Tun Dr. Mahathir should not be complaining about being lied to by Tan Sri Mahiaddin Hj Yassin. Politicians including Tun are notorious for flip flopping and denying this or that like nobody’s business. There are just so many evidence of him making all sorts of promises only to deny them in the next instance. Anwar Ibrahim is one of his constant victims. 😛
Tan Sri Mahiaddin even confirmed that he has written a letter of apology to Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad.
That’s being wise. By apologising, he has offered an olive branch to his detractor. The onus is now on Tun to rise to the occasion and show he is mature enough to accept. Forgive but not forget. 😀
Unlike all other earlier Prime Ministers of Malaysia, this now, ninety-five plus politician simply does not know the word retire. His lust for political power still burns within him and is now aiming for a hattrick. To be the 9th Malaysian PM, even if he dies, trying.
We can tell by his constant attempts, to get elected by the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong, by seeking an audience with HRH, the Supreme King of Malaysia, and proposing the setting up of a MAGERAN @ National Operations Council, ala 1969. He offers himself to head it. The MAGERAN will have powers akin to a Cabinet. As we all saw it, the Agong, didn’t agree. I think that His Majesty has had enough with Tun.
The Yang Di-Pertuan Agong after calling for a special Conference of Malay Rulers has decreed that the Malaysian Parliament reconvene as soon as possible. Yet, Mahiaddin Hj Yassin and his Minister of Law and Parliament are employing delaying tactics.
This is evident by the way they are responding to the royal Decree.
Well, it seems that Malaysia’s 8th PM, Tan Sri Mahiaddin Haji Yassin, has run out of time, to stay in his proverbial bunker. He can no longer use the COVID 19 pandemic as his excuse, to keep the ‘Emergency’ in place. The 16th Yang Di-Pertuan Agong @ Malaysian Supreme King and the Council of Malay Rulers, have decreed that the Malaysian Parliament reconvene as soon as possible and get the nation back on the democratic track.
As expected, Mahiaddin’s appointed ‘Law Minister’ came out with a delaying tactic by saying that HRH the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong and Council of Malay Rulers didn’t specify the exact date for the Malaysian Parliament to reconvene. The way these fellas try to avoid reconvening Parliament at all costs only exposes their insecurities, about the realities facing them. Their existing political hegemony is bound to disintegrate at the slightest defection of any one or two of the current PN supporting parties.
All these hanky panky and delaying tactics are a clear proof that Tan Sri Mahiaddin and his cabinet ministers are afraid of getting a vote of no-confidence by the Members of Parliament the day that parliament reconvenes. Reality speaks!
Over at Facebook, an acquaintance of mine, proposed that Malaysia be returned to the Malay Rulers and the country be ruled by absolute monarchies.
I pointed out to the person that it’s not as easy as that. For one thing, the Rulers have been silent when Islam was insulted. The Dignity and Traditions of the Malays were belittled. The land has been devastated by rampant illegal mining, deforestation, and voracious felling of forest reserves by companies that were said to be linked to members of the royalty. All such matters would render that calling irrelevant.
Their lavish and pompous lifestyles are not following the Sunnah of our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam’s life of austerity.
The Ottoman Caliphate collapsed when the last Caliphs didn’t hold firm to the enjoinment of Rasulullah Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam to live in moderation. I do not have to point out to anyone proposing a return to absolute monarchies what kind of a lifestyle, our Rulers and leaders are currently living.
Furthermore, to do that, you need to amend the Federal Constitution. You need to have a 2/3rd majority of votes supporting the motion in the Dewan Rakyat to do that. The Dewan Negara also needs to do the same. 2/3rd majority supporting such a move. That’s not something easily done. Our country is led by Constitutional Monarchy.
People will simply say anything on social media. They need to realize that there are rules and regulations that need to be followed. To do as one pleases, buy your own island and establish thy own republic. You can then maybe call yourself as ‘Duli Yang Maha Mulia‘ as Mahathir once stated in jest. 😀
Hahahahahahaha! You can call him this and that, but you surely must admit that Tun Dr. Mahathir has one hell of a funny bone! He can make fun of himself just like that!
