Rahimi Osman spills the beans on PKR's Anwar Ibrahim, Latheefa Koya and Sivarasa:
....if what Rahimi say is untrue and slanderous I challenge PKR Ketua Umum, Latheefa and Sivarasa to sue Rahimi in Court or file a Police report for criminal defamation or whatever immediately. Ada berani? I don't think so.
So who the heck is Rahimi Osman? Rahimi is a former aide to Anwar Ibrahim in 2007 and 2008, Rahimi was said to be his closest assistant during the General Election campaign. He was apparently recruited into the staff in March 2007 to update Anwar's blog, after he dropped out of studies in the International Islamic University Malaysia (UIA). Read more about Rahimi here and be enlighthened. I know I am, and I would never accept a homosexual as Malaysia's Prime Minister.
In the closing days before Voting, I hope the BN machinery would concentrate their efforts in Permatang Pauh. If Anwar loses in Permatang Pauh, our Malaysia would be a very peaceful nation.
The following was written on Facebook by one Azmi Arshad, a voter from Shah Alam, and has been reproduced here with permission and many thanks:
This is my reply to Lim Guan Eng’s speech/email which was described by his ardent supporters as “touching” and “full of energy”. I’m not sure which parts were touching but my responses aren’t tear-jerkers either. I personally wish for the elections to be behind us so that we can get on withour normal lives again. Until then I feel obliged to respond, when able, to uphold the truth (menegakkan kebenaran) and debunk lies, allegations, deception and half-truths.
My responses are not intended to offend anybody but to rebut LGE’s insinuations, allegations and accusations. And that’s all his “touching” speech was; there was not a single mention about any of the government’s positive achievements. I know, that’s politics. But we the people cannot trust leaders who do not know where to draw the line or do not bother about lines drawn.
I have not removed any part of his speech/email to ensure it remained “touching” and “full of energy” from beginning to end:
LGE said: “Since Merdeka, two million Malaysians have migrated overseas because they do not see a future for themselves and for Malaysia . It is time that we don’t live in our past that is filled with hatred and fear. We should look to the future filled with hope and harmony between all Malaysians.”
There are many different reasons why people migrate. People from different countries migrate to other countries. Not just Malaysia. There are those who prefer the Western lifestyle, there are those who want to earn higher income, there are those who want to make quick money, there are those who enjoy living abroad, there are those who follow their spouses, there are those who look for soul mates, there are those who prefer other education systems, there are those who do it for political reasons, there are those who want to run away from Ah Longs, while some are simply extroverts or wanting a change of scene and there are those who want to capitalise on business opportunities and so on and so forth. (Try googling for reasons). Irregardless, whatever their own personal reasons and preferences it is very sad that you give the impression to your fellow Malaysians as well as foreigners that people leave Malaysia as though it is because they are doomed to perish in their birthplace. That is very misleading and dishonest. Indeed many leave because you have succeedeed in instilling such hatred and fear in them.
LGE said: “To put the past behind us, we must stop the politics of race and religion.”
Yet you, Sir, are the one who re-ignited the kalimah Allah issue after the atmosphere had returned to calm, despite knowing fully well the sensitivities and sentiments of the muslims. Why do you insist on this? Why is it not acceptable to use”tuhan” instead of “Allah” in the malay translation of the bible? Why do you ignore the plea of the muslims? Why do you choose to offend muslims? I find it incredible that you are calling for “a stop on politics of race and religion”, when it is the strategy deployed by none other than your party, after which you then try to point the finger at BN/UMNO when they are compelled to defend against your provocative attacks.
LGE said: “To put the past behind us, we must end corruption.”
I totally agree with you that we must prevent corruption. BN also agrees with you, as declared in their manifesto, and you can see MACC working overtime. Why do you not encourage the government instead of merely condemning and refusing to acknowledge their efforts? And why have you done nothing on the alleged corrupt practices of DAP in Selangor linked to the tragic death of Teoh Beng Hock? Why won’t DAP allow for DNA samples to be obtained from the suspects linked to your party? The government has been investing a lot of time and effort cleaning up and DAP also needs to act on the blatant corruption under its own administration (of which allegations come from its own members against your own high ranked members). I’m sure you have seen the allegation by Tony Tan, who is still waiting for Teresa Kok to sue him for defamation, and the allegations against Ronnie Liu (with documentary evidence at that). I am not saying you personally had anything to do with it but you could not prevent corruption either and furthermore you have subsequently done nothing. While changes are taking effect towards a cleaner and more efficient government, you keep sounding like a broken record.
LGE said: “To put the past behind us, we must abolish the suppression, oppression, repression of our basic human rights and freedoms.”
Are the Opposition’s political leaders in jail? Is there shortage of food? Are people being kidnapped and tortured for opposing the government? What basic rights and freedoms have been violated? Is it because the police had to do their job to stop the rioting by your Bersih hooligans? Is it because the country does not allow same sex marriages? Is it because the government tries to help the poor by giving them some preferential treatment which is contrary to your “equal opportunity” concept? It is very sad that you would blatantly lie about the situation in this peaceful country for the sake of wanting to rule it while Anwar Ibrahim has the audacity to compare himself to Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Ghandi and Martin Luther King. You freely abuse your freedom of speech by spreading lies and deception. On the other hand you suppress the dissenting voices in your own CEC elections and try to distract attention from your unethical practice by trying to blame and demonise the ROS. You are not being truthful to yourself, to your party members and to the people.
LGE said: “To put the past behind us, we must demand good governance and performance from our ministers.”
Yes sir, I agree with you. BN demands the same and is very much ahead of you on this, not least with Idris Jala doing a great job implementing KPI systems for ministers and government.
LGE said: “To attain peace Malaysians must stand united and reject those who wish to divide us by preaching racial and religious hatred.”
Yes sir, I totally agree with you. That is why most of the people are rejecting DAP. You and your party are the true culprit in inciting racial and religious hatred and I had published my views on your mischief well before you gave this “touching” speech.
LGE said: “If we want to benefit from equal opportunities and realize our human potential we must stop extremists from continually degrading others as inferiors so as to uplift ourselves.”
Yes sir, I agree with you to a certain extent. I just do not know what you mean by “equal” because equal does not mean fair. For example, a disabled or poor person may need to be given more help to enhance his chances of survival. “Equal opportunities” is not an end in itself. But it seems “equal opportunities” to you means everybody, rich or poor, malay or chinese or indian, is given equal opportunity and if the result is that wealth is owned 100% by DAP supporters then the result is satisfactory by your definition because everyone was given “equal opportunity” and it’s too bad the others failed. Whereas what we should also be trying to achieve is fair distribution in balance sheet terms. And it goes without saying that it be done according to policies being honestly executed.
LGE said: “Why should Allah not be allowed to be used in the Bible when it is used in the Middle East ?
Sir, have you not been listening to explanations, justifications and arguments of the muslim community and Islamic authorities? Why are you asking this question again? It has been thoroughly explained, which means you have either not bothered to study the evidence or you choose to deliberately ignore it. Among other things, you know very well that the malay translation for god is “tuhan”, not “Allah”. I am very sad and depressed that you antagonise the muslims in this country and even more so in Penang. Before this “touching” speech of yours I made an appeal to our Christian bretheren to please use “tuhan” instead of “Allah”and that had nothing whatsoever to do with politics. Why do you wish to disrupt the peaceful religious harmony in this country and why are you so against the use of “tuhan”? And what does the Middle East have to do with the malay language?
LGE said: “We can only achieve harmony together. Despite our differences and diversity, Malaysians can make our common aspirations of freedom, justice, democracy and truth come true if we remember key values.”
Sir, we will achieve harmony again almost instantly if you would refrain from inciting races against each other. You are exploiting those differences and diversity for your own gain. Evidently you yourself do not hold “key values”. The values of Islam compel us to defend Allah’s name. Do your values, if any, compel you to use “Allah” instead of “tuhan” in the malay language bible? I appeal to you to please abandon your religious incitement. You don’t even have to apologise, just please retract your call and I will thank you sincerely and unconditionally — your previous stand on this matter will be forgotten.
LGE said: “That it is not who we are that is important, but what we are that is important; not the colour of our skin that is important but the content of our character; and not our past ancestry that is important but how we connect with the present and with each other to face the future.”
Yes sir, I agree with you. Islam is colour blind and the Holy Quran and the Prophet (Peace be upon him) are testament to this fact. And please know that muslims love Jesus (Peace be upon him). In the Hereafter we will all be accountable for how we lived our life in this material world. Yet it was your cybertroopers who tried to turn the malays against Tun Mahathir by “exposing” his Indian heritage, hoping the malays would then turn against him. Surely you must agree that kind of behaviour is racist and disgusting? They failed of course because not only Islam is absolutely colour blind but malays too are almost colour blind – that’s why, because of their past heritage, we also have malays who look like chinese (that’s me), indian and even european.
LGE said: “We can only be prosperous together. The time has come to focus on the economy, unemployment, education and business opportunities as the conditions for prosperity. We must build human talent and be performance-based.”
Sir, while I agree that material wealth is important, it would mean nothing and would be the cause of destruction of human values if that is your only measurement for prosperity. Prosperity in material wealth is meaningless if we do not pay alms to the poor, if we do not help others and if we are heedless of God (Tuhan). Please do not be overly obsessed with capitalism. Other than that, yes, we must work hard to earn a good honest living and in accordance with religious values. You will be pleased to know that the government has been focusing on all of the above.
LGE said: “For those who say that PR do not know how to govern, the 4 PR states of Penang, Selangor, Kedah and Kelantan have proven our ability by beating the other 10 BN states by attracting RM25 billion in investments comprising 53% of Malaysia’s total investments of RM47.2 billion in 2010. For the first time in history, Penang is now the new champion of investments in Malaysia , coming out top in 2010 with RM 12.2 billion.”
Sir, if PR has achieved good economic results, or even the best economic results as you proudly say, then I congratulate you. I also congratulate the federal government for making it conducive and attractive for those investments — in the case of Penang some seeds were of course planted by the previous state government before PR took over. It would be nice and sporting of you if you were to give credit where credit is due, instead of boasting as if you did it all on your own from zero, although we know you are sincerely trying hard for Penang to prosper and be independent like Singapore.
LGE said: “To put the past behind us, we must end corruption. Barisan Nasional cannot reform to end corruption. Remember, if we do not end corruption, Malaysia dies. If we end corruption, BN dies. The choice is clear. “
Sir, I understood you the first time. But now you are being deceptive again by trying to make corruption and BN synonymous. Your supporters will cheer and clap but to the rest of us it merely shows your consistency in indulging in character assassination. As a taste of your own medicine, we can not only replace ‘Barisan Nasional’ with ‘DAP’ in your quote but we can also say “Remember, if we do not end racism and oppression, Malaysia dies. If we end racism and oppression, DAP dies”. Not pretty is it? But it’s true. There is nothing I can add which is not already publicly known to show that BN is anti corruption (although your propaganda material shamelessly says BN menghalalkan rasuah), has implemented and enforced laws against it and has been achieving results. It is only that you refuse to acknowledge the achievements and are not capable of “sangka baik” of anyone who could be an obstacle to your quest to rule the country with PAP.
LGE said: “To put the past behind us, we must abolish the suppression, oppression, repression of our basic human rights and freedom. How can we have a clean government when we do not have clean elections?”
Sir, very sadly you repeat in this “touching” speech of yours the baseless accusations of an event that has not yet occured and furthermore after seeing how SPR has implemented so many of DAP’s demands. On the other hand what do you have to say about your own CEC election fiasco? What kind of “clean” and “democratic” process was that? This is unbecoming of a leader. How would you expect the rakyat to trust a leader who does not practise what he preaches? How can we have a clean and honest Opposition when their own elections are a farce and full of dishonesty?
LGE said: “We do not want our children to live in fear of oppressive laws as we have lived. A Pakatan Rakyat government will abolish the UUCA, the Sedition Act and the Printing Presses and Publications Act and restore local government elections.”
Sir, we need laws to maintain social order and social harmony. Isn’t there already enough mudslinging, slandering and disrespectful speech going on in the social and alternative media? Why do you insist on being able to make seditious statements and carry out seditious acts that would cause chaos and social disorder in the country? What is your agenda? (Never mind, we already know your agenda). Aren’t you yourself already getting away with impunity with all your lies, deception, insults and false allegations while your supporters freely spread them? Local government elections will only result in more money and time being wasted in endless campaigning and slandering instead of just getting on with governing. Tolong lah… Enough of people jostling for power and fishing for votes please – this is too disruptive and unproductive. We want peace and quiet, stability and steady progress.
LGE said: “When can we find justice for Teoh Beng Hock, Ahmad Sarbani and A Kugan?”
Sir, as you well know, it was DAP itself that has prevented justice for Teoh Beng Hock by not allowing suspects linked to corruption in DAP to give their DNA samples, while the police and MACC officers (whom DAP accuses of being involved) had given theirs, to establish the two unidentified DNAs found on Teoh Beng Hock. I will put up a separate post on this another time to refresh your memory. While it is believed Teoh Beng Hock was murdered by at least two individuals and covered up by DAP, there was on the other hand clear evidence to show that Ahmad Sabari accidently fell to his death when he tried to jump from the ledge to the roof of the adjacent badminton hall but misjudged the distance. The investigation team even used a stuntman to re-enact what happened. Kugan’s death was also tragic and those involved have been punished, so what further justice are you seeking? I must say that in your insinuation, you were careful in ensuring that all three races are represented for whom to “find justice” so as not to be seen as racist. That’s clever of you and I won’t fault you for that.
LGE said: “When will we have Freedom of Information & Freedom of Speech? When can we have justice that is not only done, but is seen to be done.”
Sir, first of all I am already suffering from information overload of fact and fiction and stinging ears (and eyes) from seditious and obscene speech. I don’t know what more freedom you are seeking on information and speech. But then, you denied crucial information sought by the police when they were investigating Teoh Beng Hock’s death for justice to be done. The police were seen to be trying to have justice done for Teoh Beng Hock and DAP was seen to deny it. It does appear in this case that not enough information was given to the public for them to see the corruption in DAP that led to Teoh Beng Hock’s death. Nonetheless you still have an opportunity to ask their lawyers (Karpal Singh and Gobind) to allow those individuals to give their DNA samples to clear DAP’s involvement. Please come clean on this — you will be respected as a leader.
LGE said: “To put the past behind us, we demand good governance and performance from our ministers.”
Yes sir, I heard you, understood you and agreed with you the first time. My memory is not that short. It is nice to know that you and BN shares the same desire and perhaps you should read BN’s manifesto again.
LGE said: “Malaysia can be an international and intelligent country. We must have digital intelligence with broadband connectivity.”
Yes sir, I agree with you and I am sure BN does too and has evidently already achieved great success. Malaysia having the largest Facebook population is a good indicator of that success although we hope the international community does not use your cybertroopers with multiple fake accounts as a benchmark to measure the country’s intelligence.
LGE said: “We must also have integrity intelligence, so ensure that only honest people are the decision-makers. We must have institutional intelligence under the rule of law.”
Yes sir, I agree with you and I am sure BN does too.
LGE said: “We demand good governance and performance from our ministers.”
Yes sir, I heard you and agreed with you the first time and the second time. And I’ll respond for the third time, BN is all for it too. The difference is the Opposition has not delivered on most of their promises.
LGE said: “Has the Transport Ministry done its duty to run our airports and seaports well? Look at the Penang International Airport whose completion has been delayed more than 3 times. And the Penang Port is to be reduced to be a feeder port and privatized to a 3rd party at the expense of Penangites. Why is there no consultation with the people of Penang to restore the port to its former glory? Instead of looking after airports and ports, the Transport Ministry is more interested in vehicle registration numbers and wants to increase the maximum traffic fines to RM2,000.”
I don’t know sir. But delays in construction projects, especially renovation, are not uncommon. It happens in all countries. Reasons for the delay had already been explained. First you claim that the Transport Ministry is not running the airports and seaports well. Then you complain when the operations of the port is privatised to a licensed operator to improve the services. I suggest you swallow your pride and make an appointment with the ministry to give your views and suggestions to show your sincerity in wanting to “restore the port to its former glory”. If they reject your request, then there may be truth in what you say. I don’t like traffic fines either but aren’t you concerned about the deaths on the road caused by drunk drivers and reckless driving?
LGE said: “Director-General of Tourism is wrongly charged of corruption but the Tourism Minister finds nothing wrong with spending RM1.8 million in doing up her Facebook page, when we all know that it can be done for free.”
First you want the government to fight corruption. Then you say the accused is wrongly charged with corruption. There is just no pleasing you sir. In case you are not aware the DG was acquitted not because he did not receive the gratification but because (i) the prosecution could not prove criminal intent and (ii) the prosecution failed to call in the MACC officer, who was the key complainant. Now do you appreciate how it is not that simple to charge and convict someone for corruption? Would you want the government to lower the standards for conviction so that more can be found guilty and thrown in jail? So here’s the truth: MACC was correct to charge the DG for corruption and the court was also right in acquitting him; there is no need to politicise this. That’s why we have courts of law – someone gets charged and then he is found guilty or acquitted. Errr… Can you please give us the name and phone number of the person who will do Facebook pages for free (and web sites too)? I’d like to use the person’s free services, and I wish you had told us this much earlier.
LGE said: “The Health Ministry wants to privatise healthcare when it should be a public good given as an affordable right to all Malaysians. Why allow the wastage of public funds and affect the quality and affordability of drugs when drugs are bought through a middleman at higher prices when it could be bought cheaper direct from the manufacturers, some of which are operating in Malaysia.”
Let’s wait for the government to show us the pros and cons of the proposed privatisation. I can’t comment until I know the details. Whereas you oppose for the sake of opposing, true to your slogan “Lawan Tetap Lawan”. If privatisation means higher quality and more efficient services then that would be good but at the same time we would have to weigh the benefits against the cost to people. Whatever the decision and outcome, we know the government will look after the lower income group so that they will have access to healthcare in any case.
LGE said: “The Housing and Local Government Ministry opposes local government elections in Penang , denying our fundamental democratic right to elect our councillors and our mayors.”
I have to totally disagree with you. Local government elections are a waste of money, a waste of time and a major distraction from actually governing. Where do you get the idea that it is a fundamental democratic right to elect our councillors and mayors? Just because some countries practise it, it doesn’t mean Malaysia should xerox it. The state government should be given that responsibility and be accountable — just as in a company where shareholders appoint the board of directors who are then responsible for ensuring the company employs a competent CEO and management team instead of delegating those appointments to the employees by voting. The state government, mayor and local councillors should be one cohesive team. As I responded earlier, we want leaders who fear God and respect the people and not, as you believe, those who merely fear the people and job security. The present system is better, leave it be and get on with your job.
LGE said: “We believe that Malaysians deserve better. For the last 50 years, the wealth of the nation has been robbed. Let us protect the future of our children by ensuring we have a people-centric government that protects you instead of harming you, that rewards you instead of stealing from you, that respects you instead of abusing your rights. Let us clean up Malaysia to save our children’s future.”
Sir, I have to be honest that your constant ludicrous accusations and insinuations are tiresome. The corruption and “robbing” topic has already been addressed and rebutted time and time again. Why do you continue flogging a dead horse. The government is already showing that it is a people-centric government – where “Rakyat didahulukan” — and I am grateful and happy that the government has never harmed me, apart from being disgruntled over a few speeding tickets. On the contrary the government has peen protecting us from many threats including the West’s call to allow same sex marriages, riots caused by the Opposition and other external threats such as the Lahad Datu incident. While MACC is busy handling more than 400 cases, please also investigate the alleged stealing in your own party.
LGE said: “We must put the past behind us where profits matters more than our health. Lynas concerns all of us because if Lynas is allowed to operate, Barisan Nasional will proceed with building two nuclear reactors. If we continue to put health above profits, what is the use of having all the money in the world if you cannot enjoy it healthily?”
Since you already acknowledge the immense benefits to the country (i.e. “all the money in the world”), I need not say more on this. However you are still trying to deceive and mislead the public on the safety issue. Until today all the academics, geniuses, scientists, nuclear physicists and intellects (if any) of the Opposition have not produced anything tangible to doubt the safety of the project. The United Nations International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has certified that it is safe. Do you doubt them? Were they bribed? Even your most hardcore online news portal FMT admitted to the truth: “We refer to the articles previously published by us which claim that the Lynas plant may be unsafe. We apologise for these publications as such claims do not have a scientific basis. The regulatory review of the Lynas plant has been thorough and diligent”. That’s nothing new is it; that the opposition tends to make allegations without basis. And even Saudara Anwar Ibrahim has changed his position. Your baseless allegation is dishonest and mischievious. I challenge you to issue an official statement that Lynas is unsafe instead of indulging in your usual “baling batu sembunyi tangan” antics. And please do an Anwar Ibrahim on this too i.e. complain to the foreign media.
LGE said: “The next elections shall be fought on the economy. We refuse to allow BN to use race as the issue in the next elections.”
The economy is indeed a major factor in the elections and it is DAP that has been using race as an election issue. However BN inadvertently gets tangled in race issues when they have to defend against your lies and deception to cause racial disharmony. DAP is in fact guilty of what they falsely accuse BN of. We have seen your cybertroopers posting comments saying they cannot understand why non-Malays vote for BN. We have also seen confessions by DAP’s former high ranking members on race-centric strategies. With DAP being hard core racist, this is also hypocrisy at one of its worst.
LGE said: “We need to increase the incomes of our poor or else they will fall victims to the Ah Longs. For example, Bank Negara’s Annual Report 2010 revealed that Malaysia’s household debt at the end of 2010 was RM581 billion or 76 per cent of GDP, thus giving us the dubious honour of having the second-highest level of household debt in Asia . In addition, the Malaysian household debt service ratio stood at 47.8 per cent in 2010, meaning that nearly half of the average family’s income goes to repaying debts. As a rule, banks would not lend money to those whose total servicing of loans exceeded one third of their income. In other words, we are spiralling into an indebted nation.”
Sir, enough facts and statistics have been given to explain the economy, including the national debt and improved poverty levels, but you conveniently choose to ignore them just as you conveniently ignore the facts and arguments of the muslims on the Allah issue. The man on the street is not interested in your macro-economic analysis. He wants to live in a peaceful country with food on the table while having opportunities to indulge in higher pursuits. One of the reasons we have the second-highest level of household debt in Asia is because Malaysia has relatively more property owners per capita compared to other countries. In other words, Malaysians take the opportunity to buy their homes with mortgages (resulting in household debt) compared to those in other countries with less affordable housing whereby they have to rent their accommodation (i.e. no mortgage therefore less household debt). You need to look at both sides of the balance sheet. Incidentally, Penang has performed the worst when it comes to the ratio of house price to household income. It has risen to 8 times since PR took over, compared to the internationally acceptable 3-4 times. Therefore you are in fact primarily responsible for the increase in household debt. Ironic isn’t it? That notwithstanding, facts and figures don’t lie: Malaysia has a strong and sustainable economy except that you try to mislead the public on the national debt while ignoring the fact that external debt has dropped to below RM17 billion. Please study the ETP to understand where our economy is heading and give constructive comments if you are sincere.
LGE said: “According to the New Economic Model documents, the bottom 40% of Malaysian households are living with a monthly average income of RM1,500 (and three-quarters of them are bumiputera) while 60% of the households (of four persons averagely) live with a less than RM3,000 income, which is near subsistence if one lives in the cities.These are families living in fear. We will help them live with dignity and not in fear, by increasing their incomes and cutting down their costs, with a minimum wage, getting rid of monopolies, expanding internet connectivity and encouraging creativity, innovation and productivity.”
Sir, perhaps you would, but the present government is already doing it and has steadily been achieving positive results. Nonetheless, let me introduce you to many malay families in that income group and you may ask them yourself whether they are living in fear and dignity. They do have dignity clinging to religious values but they fear DAP. This is the group who cannot compete under your demand for “equal opportunities” and yet you and your supporters condemn the government when policies are implemented to help them. Malays are not the only ones who need help; we must also help the chinese and indians at a disadvantage. It just so happens that most of the lower income group comprises the malays and DAP then accuses the government of being racist when they are given assistance. Please support the government in helping the poor of all races. At least Hj Abdul Hadi Awang was gracious enough to acknowledge the government’s efforts on 22nd April in front of more than 700 supporters at Kerteh: “Kita tidak nafikan apa yang dilakukan Kerajaan BN untuk kebajikan rakyat”. He then added: “Takkan tadok silap dan saloh selama 50 tahun BN memerintah dan Yang Maha Suci adalah Allah Taala, tetapi kita sebagai manusia tetap ada salah dan silapnya”. This is true. Surely you can also agree?
LGE said: “South Korea is a very good example of a nation that chose democracy, performance and freedom of opportunity to become a developed country. With a population of 48 million, its GDP per capita of USD20,000 is more than double Malaysia’s. But in 1970, South Korea’s per capita GDP was only USD260 compared to Malaysia’s USD380.”
That is interesting Sir, but you know very well that South Korea is an exception. Why don’t you also compare us to other neighbouring countries? How exciting is the GDP per capita when comparing home prices against disposable income? Yes indeed, Malaysia’s ratio is thankfully lower. In any case, I also would not want our country to be like South Korea, beholden to the US (which Tun M saved us from) and with North Korean missiles pointed at them. Please be thankful for what Malaysia is today while we continue to develop, especially now that the ETP is being implemented and showing positive results. Have faith.
LGE said: “We used to regularly beat South Korea at football. And now our children are fans of K-pop culture and their football team are regulars at the World Cup.”
One thing for sure is that all DAP, PAS, PKR and BN supporters will be united in cheering for Malaysia whenever we play football or badminton against South Korea. Even DAP cannot prevent that. Yes, I agree that our footballing standard is terrible and the government has failed miserably here. But please don’t be upset with the government or consider it tragic that we have not developed our own M-pop culture.
LGE said: “Only when we free ourselves of fear of change, can we be free to prosper. BN cannot change. They need to be changed, for BN wants to rule by fear. Thomas Jefferson said “When the governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny”. The choice is yours, my friends. I urge you – Let us change so we can have liberty and live with dignity.”
LGE said: “*LimGuan Eng, DAP Secretary General & MP for Bagan”
Sir, we do not fear change. Indeed we have been going through changes under the present government (who themselves have gone through change), some we don’t like and most of which we embrace for the overall good. The government cannot please everybody all of the time (and neither can the opposition) but they do try to help those who may be adversely affected by policy changes. No sir, you are wrong: you may admire Thomas Jefferson and think that he is right since he was a US Pesident, but we do not want the government to fear the people because that won’t make them sincere. We want government leaders who fear God. We want the government to be sincere with the people, respect the people, listen to the people and make the country conducive for us to live in, having peace, social harmony, good business environment and an honest Opposition. We should also then respect and be loyal to the government and also respect the honest Opposition, whereas you clearly encourage anarchy and rebellion against the government for the sake of power and wealth. We already have liberty and live with dignity and if we do need more of those for greater social order and harmony then I don’t see how DAP can do any better then what the government is already doing. On the contrary DAP and Anwar Ibrahim themselves have acted without dignity in portraying Malaysia as a “suppressed, repressed and oppressed” country with a “sham democracy” where Opposition leaders are “threatened with murder”. Sir, before you demand change, you and your party first need to change. Indeed the reason I now support BN is because they have changed since PRU-12; when will you?
Saudara Lim Guan Eng, semoga mendapat petunjuk dan hidayah.
Dato' Ahirudin asked, where in the said ROS letter was DAP not allowed to use its logo for the election. I suspect a deliberate and malicious ploy against ROS to garner sympathy from voters for the DAP.
After DAP's Lim Guan Eng and Lim Kit Siang theatrics before nomination day which was very well reported here:
......Some learned friends says that the ROS should sue the DAP but I do believe that an investigation be done on the DAP Secretary General for spreading false news as nowhere did the ROS say that the DAP cannot use its logo for the PRU13. Remember the case which got him jail time a couple of years back? Well, read these posts to jolt the mudah lupa memory of Malaysians:
Telah pun saya bercerita peristiwa bersejarah di Malaysia dan Singapura yang berlaku dalam bulan Mei. Pandangan dan reaksi tentang calon yang diumumkan oleh semua parti minggu ini akan diulas dalam kolum Ahad 21 April. Dalam PRU13, hari mengundinya 5 Mei.
Satu sejarah baru akan berlaku! Pertama BN dan Najib Tun Razak, Perdana Menteri kembali menang majoriti dua pertiga. Kedua menang majoriti tipis. Ketiga Pakatan Rakyat menang! Keempat berkemungkinan rakyat "berpecah-belah". Apa pun kelima tiada hung parliament.
Sebelum tsunami 2008, gelanggang pembangkang tidak nasional, hanya lokal – memusatkan kepada beberapa negeri tertentu sahaja. Kejayaan PR lima tahun dahulu menjadikannya benar-benar pakatan kebangsaan.
Kejayaan PR kerana kepimpinan kerajaan, BN dan Umno di bawah Badawi lembik, gagal menunaikan ikrar pokoknya sebuah kerajaan telus dan memerangi rasuah tanpa takut dan segan. Apabila Badawi diketepikan Najib mengambil alih dan kini memohon daripada rakyat mandatnya sendiri.
Sebenarnya benih yang melemahkan BN dan Umno telah ditanam tahun 2003 apabila Parlimen, yang dikuasai dengan majoriti besar oleh BN, meluluskan undang-undang penyusunan semula sempadan baru kawasan pilihan raya Parlimen dan Dun.
Explains Speaking: “There was a major change in the 2002 delineation or reconfiguration of new constituencies. The Government deliberately reversed a long-standing tradition of creating more Pribumi majority constituencies in favour of more mixed constituencies in its attempts to outflank Pas”– mengurangkan jumlah kawasan majoriti Peribumi dan menambahkan pula kawasan “campuran” untuk kononnya mengatasi atau merusukkan Pas!
Juga kerana terlalu gembira dengan sokongan kritikal pengundi bukan Melayu dalam pilihan raya kelapan hinggalah ke-11. Satu dasar dan tindakan keuntungan jangka pendek! Benar pengundi semua bangsa telah memberi Badawi kemenangan hebat 2004 tetapi empat tahun empat bulan kemudian mereka beramai-ramai meninggalkannya dalam pilihan raya ke-12 (2008).
Dasar tidak bijak tahun 2003 – mengurangkan kawasan majoriti Peribumi, mujur hanya berlaku di Semenanjung sahaja, telah memakan diri sendiri. Umno/BN telah melahirkan satu Frankenstein, satu gergasi! Sudahlah sudah mewujudkan 50 kawasan majoriti Cina sekarang kerusi majoriti absolut Peribumi hanya tinggal 140 sahaja!
Dasar ini, iaitu menambahkan kawasan “campuran” dan mengurangkan kawasan majoriti Peribumi, mengikut seorang nasionalis adalah satu dasar yang bebal dan memecahkan tradisi yang telah di terima oleh semua bahawa kerusi Parlimen terus kekal majoriti Peribumi mengikut jumlah populasi dan keluasan daerah di mana mereka tinggal. Peribumi terlampau cepat berbudi pada orang. Meski pun mereka menikmati budi mereka tidak begitu sentimental atau mengenang budi. Melayu cepat dan mudah lupa diri! Pada hakikatnya, secara pukul rata, lebih kurang hanya tinggal 140 sahaja kawasan majoriti Melayu yang absolut dari jumlah 222 kerusi Parlimen.
Inilah medan politik sekarang:
140 kawasan majoriti Peribumi,
50 kerusi Cina absolut,
dan 82 kerusi “campuran”.
BN dan Umno kini mulai menghadapi risiko jangka panjang dari tindakannya yang tidak bijak terdahulu.
Pemimpin Umno obviously kerana keterlaluan gembira (dan takut kepada Pas!) tidak tersangka Pas, PKR dan DAP boleh bersekongkol dan tidur bersama atas satu katil! Dalam politik, tiada musuh dan kawan yang abadi! Yang kekal hanya tegas Speaking, “self-interest” sahaja.
Kalau menang (besar atau kecil majoritinya) dan kalau kalah besar kecil kekalahan itu bergantung pada kawasan Parlimen yang disifatkan sebagai “in the Peribumi heartland” – iaitu di kawasan Peribumi absolut dan 82 kawasan “campuran”. Walaupun di kawasan “bumi Peribumi” ini sokongan kepada kerajaan dan BN telah menurun agak terserlah mulai 2008.
Bagaimana pula dalam PRU13? Kalau kita percaya kepada kerajaan, Umno, MCA dan MIC dan media perdana dan juga propagandis mereka Peribumi/Melayu yang dulu lari telah kembali ke pangkuan Umno dan BN. Bagus kalau itu kenyataan. Tahniah! Cuma kononnya pengundi Cina sahaja yang belum lagi rujuk. Pengundi India pun telah rujuk.
Bolehkah BN, Umno terutamanya, merampas kembali kerusi yang dirampas oleh PR – oleh PKR dan Pas khususnya? Berjayakah MCA, MIC dan Gerakan menyambar kembali kerusi yang hilang dari DAP dan PKR? Apa yang nyata pembalikan kerusi dari majoriti Peribumi absolut kepada mixed-seats satu dasar yang tidak waras; nasib baik tidak berlaku di Sarawak dan Sabah kalau tidak kedominanan Peribumi di sana pun terancam dan tergugat seperti keadaannya di semenanjung.
Dasar DAP yang keterlaluan chauvinis itu, mengikut pandangan Dr Mahathir terutamanya dan juga orang lain, telah mempolarisasikan kaum terutama antara Cina dan Melayu/Peribumi. Juga divisif. Keadaan sudah meningkat hingga situasi ini yang tidak pernah wujud di Johor, di Sarawak dan Sabah yang terkenal dengan dasar toleransi dan liberal itu tidak lagi demikian, tidak seharmoni seperti sebelumnya.
Adalah bijak, pihak berkuasa, pihak penguat kuasa tidak mengambil ringan atau pooh-poohkan kebencian yang merebak bagai sekam ini. Parti chauvinis itu terus-menerus membangkit dan mengungkit hak dan kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu, Islam serta Peribumi walaupun kepentingan legitimasi Cina, India – bahasa dan agama mereka - dilindungi oleh perlembagaan.
Adakah PRU13 titik kebangkitan semula Melayu, Peribumi, Islam setelah mengalami keaiban pada tahun 2008, kritikan, perlekehan yang terus menerus mempersoalkan isu sensitif melibatkan kedudukan dan hak istimewa Melayu dan Islam?
Trend pengundi 2013: Cina, majoritinya jelas memihak setakat hari ini, kepada DAP walaupun MCA dan Gerakan cuba sedaya upaya, bertungkus lumus memujuk pengundi Cina jangan kerana kepentingan politik jangka pendek menghasilkan kemudaratan jangka panjang melalui polarisasi antara majoriti Peribumi dan Cina yang akan merugikan kedominanan kaum Cina dalam ekonomi, kewangan dan profesion.
Stabiliti politik hanya terjamin jika hubungan muhibah antara dua kaum terbesar ini terus wujud. Terus kekal, terus berkembang dan mempunyai ketahanan. Adakah Cina (25 peratus dari jumlah populasi dan mungkin 30 peratus jumlah pengundi kerana mereka ramai mendaftar sebagai pengundi) mahu terus berkonfrontasi, bertentangan dengan Peribumi, Islam dan juga Melayu – 65 peratus bilangan dari populasi dan dari bilangan pengundi?
Saya tidak fikir begitu, saya berharap tidak macam itu kerana saya sedar dan memuji orang Cina - lazimnya mereka satu bangsa yang realistik, praktikal, cerdik dan melihat masa depan menggunakan kaca mata yang bervision 20/20. Polarisasi dan kekacauan sudah tentu merugikan semua bangsa, tiada kecualian, tetapi mereka yang mendominasi ekonomi, kewangan, ekonomi runcit, construction dan SMEs akan jadi mangsa dan merana terteruk.
PR, DAP terutamanya, begitu berani; begitu agresif. Pengundi Cina, saya kira, berwawasan. Masakan mereka begitu jitu, semuafakat untuk merenggangkan hubungan muhibah dengan Melayu, Peribumi, Islam yang bilangannya ditaksirkan lebih besar dari bilangan yang menyokong Pas dan PKR?
Sudahkah kita sampai ke tahap retak menanti belah? Adakah kita menantikan timbulnya malapetaka yang lebih besar, lebih merugikan dari keadaan sekarang? Jangan sekali-kali - termasuk Peribumi - bermain politik polarisasi, bermain api dan melakukan sesuatu hingga retak melampaui tara, garis!
A post by blogger Melayu Lama who is also a good FB friend with his interesting observations and musings. In this post Melayu Lama eloquently and convincingly set out a case why UMNO should fight DAP head to head:
Post-WWII, right after the axis forces were defeated, locals with an axe to grind in Holland started rounding up pro-German wartime supporters and in some cases people who didn't help the resistance forces (not necessarily supporters of the nazis nor were they opposers of the resistance, they were just people who didn't want to get involved or were too scared) and started torturing them in camps. They were worse than the nazis until eventually Allied Forces arrived at axis forces vacated territories and found those despicable camps of the dutch torturing their own. They tortured their own people worse than even the invading nazis themselves.
pakatan has way too much of an axe to grind and from the look of things, the law, constitution, religious boundaries are all crossed in the name of so-called bigger justice which is to bring down the BN. But if laws are broken, cheating occurs, lies are spread, acts of violence are supported as a means to an end where do we draw the line? If they have all those means at their disposal as a tool to wrestle power do you think they won't keep those tools to maintain power? pakatan rules by mob and thugs and when we let lawlessness prevail in anyway for whatever circumstances we are no better than thugs ourselves. They have an axe to grind and they will chop off heads, even if it is illegal to do so they will conveniently make it legal. That will be the end of civilization as we know it. They are preaching way too much hate and they must be stopped!
The kind of hate towards the Malays dap people have in their eyes is akin to the hate hitler had towards the Jews. No kidding. Everything is Umno's and by extension the Malays' fault. dap is preaching so much hate and saying it's alright to commit wrongs just to get Umno (the Malays) out of power. No sense of right or wrong. People like that will literally plunder and kill since laws and morals are meaningless to them. Even kaffir countries have moral boundaries that cannot be crossed what more Malaysia and yet they are saying morals are of no question. Morals are the basis of a person's character. If they are immoral personally, what more professionally?
You can see that many are supporting a particular side based on tonnes of hate. Racists? Of course, kick us bloody Malays out right? Common sense is certainly missing. A lot of those lopsided, "we can do no wrong" type of postings everywhere. Hypothetically, their idols can rob banks and kill bank security guards in the process right in front of them and their (missing sense of) logic will tell them it's ok because the bank has something to do with BN and the guards are relatives of Umno members. They're mad. No sense of right or wrong anymore.
While I personally do not care for the sexcapades of legislators and such, I am of the opinion that morally, and morals meaning personal conduct here of not just their own but of their spouses, siblings, offsprings, relatives, in-laws, close friends and close associates, should be of acceptable standing. The saying that what they do in their own space and time is their business is rubbish. A public figure has no private life. That is the reality of things. Everything will be under the microscope for public scrutiny. If they insist on having a private life, the only way to do it is to get out of public life. Simple as that. It's a rule practiced everywhere regardless what kind of public figure they are: politicians, tycoons, royals, celebraties, the rules are the same eveywhere.
Even in really open, free for all countries that champion homosexuality, bisexuality, same sex marriages and other sexcapades taboo to Asians, even those societies place some standards of moral conduct on their public figures. The recent CIA head, Bill Clinton, immediate past Singapore parliament speaker and many more have either resigned or have been told to resign because of their sexcapades.Yet, in a supposedly "Islamic" environment such as ours we are told by some quarters that what they do in their spare time is none of our business? Looks like the kaffirs have better moral standards than us? Worse is that we have lebais indoctrinating values of politically laced institutionalized religion to make all these immoral acts halal.
It is quite obvious by now, if we haven't realised it before, that the real fight is between Umno and dap. The arguments and online debate processions for now are clearly race/lingo segregated and achieves minimal effect. Malays in general hardly debate in the English discussions and the dap chinese hardly debate in Malay dicussions. It is time Umno took them head on in the English discussions for the desired effect. Honestly, engaging pas and pkr is clearly a waste of time. They're not the ones determining the course for pakatan not are they wearing the pants in that trio. As lead party in BN, Umno needs to face and take on dap as the lead of the other side. Furthermore, the policies and actions/inactions of the dap have always been in total contradiction with Umno's, all the more reason to take on dap. pas' argument using religion is a mere distraction for Umno. Umno and it's supporters must not waste time with the distracting pak lebais discussing religious rhetotrics and focus on the dap and it's anti-Malay and anti-Muslim goals.
Clearly we have two groups who generally hate each other and speak different lingos. Add that to hate, loose or non-existent morals, institutionalized religion and people who are at loggerheads not being able to communicate let alone understand each other, the dap especially, and pas in a lesser minion-ish role than dap's, better be ready to bear the responsibility of starting something that can spiral out of control more than it already has. We're not talking about playing with fire anymore but more like playing with flame throwers!
As the time for nomination day approaches this weekend on 20th of April, the BN are unveiling their list of candidates while the Pakatan are still haggling with theirs...catch the latest here. I am not dwelling to much on the candidates as I, like many Malaysians have already decided which party/coalition that we will vote for.
I have a few words for tantrum throwing Bishop Tan though:
'Reflection of callous insensivity to Christians?'..... What the heck are you talking about? I say man Bishop Tan please get off your high horse lah show some tolerance lah, this is Malaysia if you hadn't noticed our blessed nation is a multi-religious and multi-racial country which have conducted three general elections successfully and peacefully on a Sunday with no complains whatsoever. Voting on Sunday 5 May 2013 will start at 8.00 am and end at 5.00 pm and you can have your mass in the morning which shouldn't take that long, and after that plenty of time for your flock to go to vote what.
So what do you want really Bishop Tan, the polls to be on a Friday? Rest be assured that the very tolerant majority Malaysian Muslims would not complain as they will find time to vote before or after Friday prayers, tak de hal punya.
But thething is the polling date are set by the SPR who are appointed by the DYMM Agung, so lets vote on the set date and let us pray that the best candidates of good moral standing are chosen for each constituency shall we?
So Bishop Tan I think lets move on to a more tolerant Malaysian society, can or not?
APRIL 15 — It is a truism that the survival and success of our nation depends upon our ability to sustain and enhance our inter-ethnic harmony. This is why the question of how Barisan Nasional (BN) or Pakatan Rakyat (PR) will manage ethnic relations in the country in the coming years is of critical importance to the voter in the May 5 general election.
For a society whose multi-religious and multi-cultural texture is one of the most complex in the world, Malaysia has done remarkably well in preserving a degree of inter-ethnic harmony which is the envy of the rest of the human family. An objective criterion testifies to this. Over 55 years there has been a minimum of communal violence. There has been only one major riot with communal overtones that resulted in the loss of lives. That the riot of May 13 1969 was contained within a specific city, that law and order was restored within weeks and democratic rule reinstated in 21 months, is incontrovertible proof of the government’s ability to deal with an ethnic challenge.
The BN government and its predecessor, the Alliance, have proven their credentials in a number of other less significant fracases. The 1967 disturbance in Penang; the 1978 Kerling incident; and the 2001 Kampung Medan episode would be some examples. The BN has also defused ethnic tensions arising from certain issues such as the 1978 Merdeka University controversy, and the 2010 sporadic attacks on churches, mosques and a gurdawara in the wake of a court decision on the use of the term “Allah”. Culprits responsible for the one cow head and five pig head incidents in recent years have also been punished by the law.
It is an irrefutable fact that BN has the experience and the expertise in dealing with ethnic challenges. PR has yet to be tested largely because when ethnic issues impinge upon security, they come within the purview of the federal government. Its management of four state governments has not equipped PR with the skills and knowledge to negotiate the complex multi-ethnic terrain that is Malaysia.
PR supporters sometimes point to the inter-ethnic harmony in Kelantan as proof of its ability to maintain good relations among the different communities. Inter-harmony in Kelantan has very little to do with the PAS-led government per se. Even when BN was in power in Kota Baru from 1978 to 1990, relations between the majority Malay community and the Chinese and Siamese minorities were amicable. Kelantan has a long and distinguished record of inter-ethnic conviviality which goes beyond parties and politics. The small size of the minorities — five per cent of the population — and their readiness to integrate into the larger Malay cultural ethos, the accommodative attitude of the majority, and an indigenous structure of governance which was not totally subverted by colonial rule, have all contributed to this.
In fact, current trends seem to suggest that conviviality among the communities in Kelantan may be under some strain as a result of the politics represented by PAS and its partner, the DAP. Some of the restrictions and controls imposed in the name of PAS’s notion of “Islamic morality” are beginning to create a certain degree of uneasiness among younger non-Muslim Kelantanese. Similarly, the rise of Chinese ethnocentrism at the national level, fuelled to a large extent by the DAP, is seeping into the consciousness of a segment of Chinese youths in Kelantan, and separating them from the Malay majority.
This is the real danger of enthroning PAS and DAP in Putrajaya. If they rule Malaysia, their respective ideological orientations will widen even further the chasm that divides Malaysian communities. PAS’s superficial approach to Muslim identity reflected in its negative outlook on the rights and roles of women; the interaction between the sexes; and what constitutes wholesome entertainment, coupled with its obsession with prohibitions and punishments, will not only drive a wedge between Muslims and non-Muslims but also polarise Muslims themselves. The DAP, on the other hand, which is already alienated from the Malay majority because of some of its chauvinistic stances will trigger a backlash from the latter if it pursues policies on the economy or education motivated by its lopsided view of equality.
It is not just their individual policies that are inimical to national unity. The DAP is vehemently opposed to PAS’s Islamic state which remains the Islamic party’s real goal even as it continues to flip-flop over its “negara kebajikan”. The DAP’s mission of a “Malaysian Malaysia” which in reality demonstrates very little empathy for the defining attributes of the land and its identity — Bahasa Melayu; Islam and the Malay Rulers — is a quest which PAS rejects totally though it has not been vocal about it since 2008. This huge gap that separates the two parties in Pakatan defies resolution. The third partner in PR, Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), has made no attempt to reconcile this ideological split between the two parties. This is why PR is, for all intents and purposes, an inchoate, disparate inter-party grouping which is utterly incapable of bringing the various Malaysian communities together.
Malaysians should ask themselves if it is wise to hand the reins of power to such a grouping especially at a time when religion is emerging as the fundamental fault-line in our society. This is a pertinent question to raise for while PAS remains wedded to a narrow identity-based dogma, the DAP is increasingly becoming the conduit for strident Christian voices that are less than sensitive to the prevailing Muslim-majority landscape. How can any sane, sensible person expect these two parties to help forge unity in the years ahead?

The DAP leaders are having their hands full even before the 20th April nomination day, for starters the threat of being de-registered by the Registrar of Societies due to serious problems in their recent CEC election is looking very real.
....which I think is uncalled for considering that ROS is only doing its job and had the CEC election been done according to the book none of the problems associated with the CEC elections would have materialized. In other words DAP have nobody else to blame for the fiasco except themselves and their leaders.
If indeed the DAP is de-registered I hope that its Secretary General Lim Guan Eng be man enough to take responsibility for the disaster and not blame BN and the elections for something which was of their own doing.
I would have thought that with all parties engaged in political campaign since March 2008, the campaigning period would have been reduced to the bare minimum....14 days is a long time in politics.
Especially so we have the many shit stirrers allied to Pakatan DAP,PAS,PKR like Ambiga's 'Bersih' and Haris Ibrahim ABU who are presmearing an expected Barisan Nasional Victory over the chaotic Pakatan parties coalition who cannot even agree on their choice of PM and publicly disagree on many issues of national interests lets not even to begin about their disagreements of who gets more and what seats to contest in PRU13.
I think of all the rubbish spewed by the Pakatan supporters ABU's message of violence need to be nipped in the bud by the relevant authority namely our PDRM, intimidating voters with thuggish statements is not Malaysia's culture and will invite response in kind from other citizens not happy with Violent Haris's message.
Yes I agree Haris dah makin menggila, a dumbass trying to breath violence and hate into his lifeless ABU campaign. Can't blame him really, the Pakatan campaign in ceramahs are full of negatives, hate and divisive messages. They want to win Putrajaya by beating down the Barisan Nasional with hate and divisiveness. I pray that Malaysians will see through this bunch of power crazed wannabee leaders of Malaysia, they will bring nothing but misery to Malaysians with their chaotic and leaderless way.
I am not predicting anything here but just to show that the Gelang Patah Parliamentary seat may no be what DAP thinks...a walkover win for them as they are super confident that the predominantly rural Chinese in Gelang Patah would vote for the DAP in overwhelming numbers no matter what: Read:

PRU-13: Parlimen dibubar tepat pada masa - Penganalisis Oleh AZMAIN IBRAHIM
KUALA LUMPUR 3 April - Pembubaran Parlimen secara rasmi hari ini adalah tepat pada masanya dengan mengambil kira iklim politik, ekonomi dan sosial yang stabil selain pemerintah telah berjaya mencipta rekod pembangunan yang cemerlang, kata penganalisis politik, Prof. Datuk Dr. Zainal Kling.
Malah, katanya, Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak melalui pemerintahannya sejak empat tahun lalu telah pun meninggalkan impak positif kepada negara.
Menurut beliau, pembangunan juga banyak telah dilakukan oleh Najib dalam tempoh empat tahun lalu termasuk melakukan transformasi besar-besaran dalam sektor kerajaan, ekonomi, politik dan sosial.
Katanya, perancangan terperinci Perdana Menteri telah dibuat sejak sekian lama selain mendapat maklum balas yang positif dari dalam negara dan luar negara.
"Pelaburan asing telah meningkat ke dalam negara, malah, perancangan ekonomi negara untuk tempoh lima tahun akan datang sudah pun tersedia dan selari dengan perancangan, katanya kepada Utusan Online ketika dihubungi di sini hari ini.
Zainal diminta mengulas pembubaran Parlimen secara rasmi hari ini bagi membolehkan Pilihan Raya Umum Ke-13 (PRU-13) diadakan dalam tempoh 60 hari.
Perkara itu diumumkan Perdana Menteri dalam ucapan khasnya yang disiarkan secara langsung menerusi televisyen dari pejabatnya.
Tambah Zainal, Najib telah membangunkan negara lebih daripada sebuah negara kebajikan.
Malah, pakatan pembangkang amat cemburu dengan kejayaan yang telah dilaksanakan oleh kerajaan sejak empat tahun lalu.
