Ketuanan Melayu with PAS ? – what utter rubbish!

Islam does not not condone it.


Umno ‘opportunists’ causing friction in PAS

Umno ‘opportunists’ must put their own house in order before meddling in the affairs of PAS.
MCPXThe party’s Johor information chief Mazlan Aliman said these opportunists were creating discord among PAS leaders by making speculations that the two Malay-dominated parties were forging a power-sharing arrangement.

“As an exco member of PAS’ working committee, I wish to state my disappointment with the media reports on the issue of the PAS-Umno muzakarah (discussions),” he said in a statement today.

“Although PAS does not deny the importance of having talks with Umno for the good of Islam and the survival of Malays, it is not at all true that the talks are oriented towards (discussing) the sharing of power.

“Rather, PAS’ aspiration through the mandate given to it in the past general election to strengthen its understanding with Parti Keadilan Rakyat and DAP in Pakatan Rakyat has never changed,” he said.

According to Mazlan, two PAS exco meetings on June 8 and 25 resolved that the party would remain in and be at the forefront of Pakatan, be proactive within Paktan to struggle for Islam, be proactive in Pakatan-led states and strengthen its PAS supporters clubs.

He said a party meeting in Johor on July 20 reiterated the same commitment.

“The PAS Johor convention on Aug 3, to be officiated by PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang, will be the arena where delegates debate the cooperation within Pakatan and reject any political negotiations with Umno.

“I support the call by PAS spiritual leader Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat for all PAS leaders to unite and avoid being divided by the machinations of opportunists. Umno must put its own house in order before meddling in PAS’ affairs,” said Mazlan.

Umno president and Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi revealed on Sunday that Umno had held three talks with PAS leaders to discuss matters pertaining to Islam and the Malays.

Hadi confirmed the talks yesterday. However Malaysiakini also learnt that a potential power sharing deal in Selangor was the main point of discussion in the very first meeting held between the parties right after the March 8 general election.

Umno’s true colours

Meanwhile Selangor DAP secretary Lau Weng San said that a coalition government between PAS and BN in the state would be “unfeasible, unviable, impossible and unsustainable”.

He said that it would be quite impossible for such idea to materialise in Selangor.

“BN Selangor is basically reduced to Umno alone as MIC, PPP and Gerakan are completely wiped out while MCA is reduced to a mosquito political party with only two state seats and one parliament seat,” said the Kampung Tunku state representative in a statement today.

He added that the combined number of seats of Umno (18), MCA (2) and PAS (8) would only add up to 28 seats, half of the state’s 56 seats, which are in the hands of PKR and DAP.

He said that the proposed BN-PAS line up would also contain 90 percent of Malays with only one female assemblyperson.

“This line-up will fail to represent the racial breakdown in Selangor,” he added.

He said that Umno’s intention in proposing a joint government with PAS was clear – to have a Malay-dominant government which was unfeasible and unsustainable.

To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of people - Emily Cox

Siphoning EPF money

On 'Why should Valuecap borrow from EPF?' Syed Shahir Syed Mohamud: MTUC condemns the government's move to bail out Valuecap to support the local stock market using RM5 billion from EPF, as the provident fund is the custodian of the workers' money and not some sort of ‘automated teller machine' for the government.
If at all the EPF were to lend its money to the government, it has to be under the condition that there be transparency and accountability in the activities for which the money has been purposed. We want to know who is doing what with the money that belongs to the workers. This is the hard-earned money of the workers, their retirement plan. How is this bailout plan going to benefit the workers? We also question the reason for this bailout. If the economic fundamentals in Malaysia are strong and reserves sufficient as has been stated several times by the government, then why is there a need to offer so much money to the GLCs? Second Finance Minister Nor Mohamed Yakcop should prove how the EPF would profit from this loan. Bernama had reported that Nor had given the assurance that the loan given out by EPF would reap profits for the fund judging from Valuecap's past performance. But where is the paperwork and calculations to show that this move will benefit the EPF? MTUC is concerned that the loan might be mismanaged or misused and this, in turn, would affect the returns for the contributors. Mere assurances are not enough. We want to proof that this RM5 billion will not go down the drain. (The writer is president, MTUC). Sharyn: The government wants to use our pension money to prop up the Malaysian stock market which is the playing field of the rich people. If so, the government must ensure that the EPF account holders - who are predominantly the poor to average citizens of Malaysia - be guaranteed all of our pension money with a compound 8% growth (interest). It's so selfish and sick of the government to use the poor's pension money to help the rich to make more money with all the risks taken by the poor/average citizen. We can better use the RM% billion loans to Valuecap for our children's education, shelter, medical bills etc. Why not get those rich people to prop up the share market instead? Why should they park their money overseas and gamble with our EPF money instead? Kumar14: Who is behind this Valuecap organisation? Why suddenly, this separate entity is allowed to access funds from the EPF? Are they capable enough to handle it or is it just another desperate and blind move? It has been a very infamous trend where the people's funds are channeled to a company for investment purposes and suddenly POP! the funds disappear and there is nobody to be held responsible but a RM2 shell company. Charge who? Sue whom? The RM2 company (just a registered name)? We have seen this many times. People in power and with connections allow such things to go through and reap/rob the people's wealth and then blame it on organisations which actually don't exist. What if a lot of EPF funds are looted via such scams and nobody is to be pointed at? Where will the government get the funds to replenish the EPF? The people are very bored, disappointed, angry and frustrated at seeing all these dumb and unaccounted for measures being allowed by the government with lame excuses. Please, somebody verify the true purpose, integrity and capability of anybody attempting to use the people's fund.
