Inilah wajah Umno yang sebenarnya

Posted on: September 18, 2008

Apabila Rakyat sedang dalam pelbagai kesusahan dalam kehidupan mereka, para pemimpin kerajaan Malaysia diharapkan agar memberi kepentingan kepada apa yang dirasai dan hadapi oleh Rakyat sebagai keutamaan.   Dan memberi penumpuan terhadap usaha-usaha memperbaiki kehidupan Rakyat.   Malangnya, inilah yang dipaparkan oleh Umno…hal ehwal Rakyat diketepikan sementara mengurus hal ehwal parti yang sudah begitu sarat dengan berbagai kegawatan…tumpuan pemimpin ialah bagaimana untuk mengekalkan kuasa yang sudah tiada…Umno-BN sudah tiada kuasa…kerana sudah menjadi kerajaan minoriti…kenapa tidak memenuhi permintaan Anwar untuk bertemu dan berbincang mengenai peralihan kuasa yang memang tidak dapat dielakkan lagi?   Kenapa tidak percaya bahawa Pakatan Rakyat memang sudah cukup bilangan yang memihak kepada Pakatan Rakyat?

Anwar Ibrahim mewakili sebahagian Rakyat Malaysia – jutaan Rakyat Malaysia.   Kenapa PM tidak mahu berjumpa dengan beliau?   Apa ruginya untuk berjumpa Anwar Ibrahim?

Abdullah Badawi akan diingati sebagai pemimpin yang paling tidak demokratik sepanjang sejarah politik Malaysia sekiranya kesemua Ahli-Ahli Parlimen BN yang tersenarai dalam bilangan lebih 31 orang itu tampil menyebut nama-nama mereka satu persatu untuk mencorakkan peralihan kuasa…

Justru itu, eloklah kiranya Abdullah Badawi segera bertemu, memenuhi permintaan Anwar Ibrahim…

Abdullah moves quickly to shore up power

Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, who this afternoon swapped his finance portfolio for his deputy’s defence post, is seen moving quickly to shore up power ahead of challenges to his political position both from within and outside his Umno party.

Political watchers interviewed by Malaysiakini said the latest political footwork was aimed at bringing in line dissenting camps within Umno and to curtail the growing strength of Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, who has threatened to form a new government soon.

” I am not sure about Anwar but this is a good move for Umno that should help the top party leadership to close ranks,” said veteran Umno watcher Mustapha Ong.

“But now I think Najib supporters can wholeheartedly go to the ground and tell them Najib won’t accept even if they nominate. It is very clear now that he will stand by Abdullah,” he added.

The 68-year old Abdullah sprung a surprise today when he announced at a hastily-convened press conference that he would hand over the coveted finance minister post to Najib, while at the same time assuming the latter’s defence minister portfolio.

The swap, although talked about in Umno inner circles for some time, caught Malaysians by surprise, sparking rumours that Abdullah, known for his simplicity and soft ways, was trying to consolidate power.

Mounting challenge from Anwar

Abdullah has been at the centre of a political maelstrom, caught by bitter infighting in Umno and a mounting challenge from the Anwar-led Pakatan Rakyat to overthrow his ruling Barisan Nasional coalition.

“Anwar has taken it so far, he has thrown down the gauntlet. It is clear is he is not going to just let it go,” said Vishnu Varathan, analyst at Forecast Singapore Pte Ltd.

“Even if there is no change in government now, you can’t rule it out in the next few months. There are also growing signs of cracks in Umno, what with Dr Mahathir (Mohamad) returning. Any weakness there will be open invitation for attacks from the opposition,” Vishnu added.

At today’s press conference, Abdullah described Anwar as a threat to national security and said he should be punished for “lying to the public and confusing the people”.

A party insider however denied Abdullah’s assumption of the defence ministry was a prelude to arresting Anwar under the country’s draconian Internal Security Act.

“We think Anwar should be arrested for all the mind games he is playing on the people but the defence ministry is not about that. Abdullah has been in defence before, so it is a natural exchange,” the party veteran said.Nevetheless, speculation is abuzz especially after blogger Syed Azidi Syed Abdul Aziz was arrested this afternoon under the Sedition Act. Last week, Abdullah launched a shock crackdown, detaining two journalists and an opposition politician under the ISA, which allows for detention without trial.

A decision by the Sabah Progressive Party – which has previously said it was open to joining the Paktan – to pull out of the Barisan is expected to pile further pressure on Abdullah.

Trade-off

Observers also said Abdullah – under siege to quit after a recent string of controversies – was also seeking to assure Najib his accession to the premiership would not be affected, and also to deflect a campaign led by ex-premier Mahathir to unseat him from the Umno presidency.

Khairy faces a challenge from Mukhriz Mahathir, the youngest son of the 82-year old ex-premier.

“Some divisions are expected to nominate other candidates but if Najib sticks with Abdullah, they are a formidable team. This is the power of incumbency,” said Khoo Kay Peng, an independent political analyst.

“It is a trade-off. For Abdullah, it is not about clinging on. He is not power crazy but it is more to satisfy his supporters and also to help Khairy consolidate his place in Umno,” Mustapha added.

Last week, Najib and his cabinet colleague, International Trade and Industry Minister Muhyiddin Yassin, caused a stir with statements distancing themselves from their boss.

Muhyiddin, who called on Abdullah to step down, also invited Mahathir – Abdullah’s former mentor turned foe – to return to Umno. At the same time, Najib backed away from a power transition pact made with his boss in July, whereby the latter would pass to him the premiership and Umno presidency in June 2010.

Meanwhile, the outspoken and feisty Mahathir, who still wields considerable influence in the party, has been rallying support from Umno members to dislodge Abdullah, whom he blames for weakening the country with his soft leadership.

Consultation

However, according to the party insider, Mahathir, who runs his own blog, has been persuaded to come around and “hold his tongue”.

Mahathir, Muhyiddin and Tengku Razaleigh (Hamzah) have all been consulted and they are not going to go against this latest move for the sake of party unity,” the Umno veteran said.

“Everyone gets something and their supporters get going to the ground to spread the word. Mukhriz may have to settle for number two post behind Khairy but at least his position is assured and eventually both he and Khairy will be made ministers,” he said.

Umno vice president Muhyiddin, previously favoured to run as Najib’s deputy in the December elections, is also expected to fall in line.

“He will become the senior vice president,” said Mustapha. “That should be fine with him as he will become Najib’s number two when Abdullah retires.”

Among the Umno leaders eyeing the top posts, the 71-year old Tengku Razaleigh may possibly end up with the least, but analysts said his rapport with party grassroots was weak to start with. They do not expect him to stand much chance without Muhyiddin leaving the Najib camp to come to his side and compete as his number two against Abdullah.

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.
