Ruling Coalition Urging to Have ELECTED BN Top Posts

Have election for Barisan top posts: Kayveas

KUALA LUMPUR: Barisan Nasional should have an internal election to pick the top office bearers, proposed PPP president Datuk M. Kayveas.

He said it would be good to have a chance to pick the coalition’s leadership, especially the top four posts - chairman, deputy chairman, secretary-general and treasurer.

“It is better to have an election for Barisan; we can nominate names.
If we agree Umno becomes chairman, then okay.
If MCA or other parties get the deputy chairmanship, it is also no problem."

“The positions of secretary-general and treasurer should also be contested by other parties. Maybe there are parties in Sabah and Sarawak who are rich and can become treasurer,” he said.

Kayveas was responding to
MCA Youth’s suggestion that the Barisan deputy chairmanship slot be expanded to two positions, with one of them held by MCA due to the party’s seniority and size in the coalition.

“Now there’s no election, so definitely the biggest party becomes chairman. There is nothing wrong with having a small election in Barisan,” he said.

He said the number of delegates for the Barisan election should be fairly distributed, with all component parties having an equal number.

He also said it was not fair to just allocate the second deputy chairman spot to MCA, as other parties should also have a chance to hold the post.

“If MCA has a new president, then he becomes the Barisan deputy chairman.
That is also not fair. There are presidents of component parties who have been there for more than 10 years and should be given a chance,” he said.

Kayveas said it was also time to have a Deputy Prime Minister who is a non-Malay, saying that Umno cannot run the country and form the Government on its own.

On Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s statement that Umno does not bully other Barisan component parties, he said there was a need to change the perception that Umno is a bully.

Muhyiddin Motion to Finish off PM

18th October Malaysiaparty 's pick of to-day

Muhyiddin moves to finish off PM

OCT 16 - Buoyed by the overwhelming lead he has secured for the deputypresidency after the first week of nominations from Umno divisions, Tan SriMuhyiddin Yassin has moved to land a fatal blow on Prime Minister Datuk SeriAbdullah Ahmad Badawi.Under the latest, and what many thought was the final version of thetransition plan, Abdullah announced that he would not stand for re-electionin Umno and hand over power when the party's annual congress officiallyelects its new leader in March.Following Abdullah's announcement, as planned, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, iscruising towards an uncontested win with no one else managing to secure anomination for the top post thus far. For many in Umno, it is already aforegone conclusion that Najib and Muhyiddin will be the next leadershippair of the party and government.But until now, there was also widespread acceptance for the postponement ofthe party congress from December to March in order to give Abdullah sometime to finish his promised reforms. It seems that even that is now underquestion.When met by reporters today, Muhyiddin said that the campaign period was toolong and that this would affect the official work of ministers and deputyministers aspiring for posts in the party.Reading between the lines of Muhyiddin's statement is a clear move to oustAbdullah earlier.Muhyiddin has been at the forefront of the campaign to get Abdullah toresign after the March general election which initially resulted in the 2010formula, and then when Muhyiddin felt that he could push it further, hesucceeded in orchestrating calls for an earlier handover which finally ledto the March 2009 agreement where Abdullah would step down as Prime Ministerafter the party congress.Now, Muhyiddin is at it again. Perhaps confident that he has no realchallenger for the deputy presidency considering his nearest rival, MalaccaChief Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Ali Rustam, is trailing far behind innomination numbers, Muhyiddin is now going for the kill by appealing to Umnomembers to exert pressure once again on the leadership to bring the date ofthe congress forward and hence get Abdullah out quicker.The move is calculated to give an advantage to the current frontrunners whoare all perceived to be aligned to the Najib-Muhyiddin ticket -vice-president aspirants Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein and Datuk SeriShafie Apdal, and Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir who is leading the race for theYouth leadership.The quicker the congress, where delegates will elect those who make it pastthe nomination stage, the better the chances are for these frontrunners. Ifthe congress takes place in March 2009 as scheduled, sentiment can turnagainst those who have taken an early lead.However, the main point behind Muhyiddin's latest move is that it isdesigned to cut short Abdullah's extra time in office. It is possible thatthe latest round of political attacks on Najib has created a sense that thetransition must happen quicker before any more damage is done to theincoming premier.Many Najib supporters feel that he will be better able to handle theaccusations if he is already the Prime Minister and that March may be toofar away. For Muhyiddin, an earlier Abdullah exit will also see himappointed as Deputy Prime Minister quicker.Muhyiddin's latest statement comes a few days after a telling photograph waspublished in a leading Malay-language daily of him, Najib and former premierTun Dr Mahathir Mohamad sitting together at a Hari Raya open house.For political observers, the photograph spoke not just a thousand, but amillion words. Dr Mahathir wants nothing more than Abdullah being booted outof office sooner than later.It seems Muhyiddin is about to deliver that for the man who has come out invocal support for him as Najib's deputy.

党选情势大好杜绝翻盘此外,随着两次逼宫成功后,“纳慕配”已经成为党内主流共识。因此趁机缩短竞选期,让其他的竞争对手毫无无翻盘逆转的机会,可说是百利而无一害。纳吉的党主席提名至今毫无出现对手,东姑拉沙里仍未获任何区部的提名。而慕尤丁角逐署理主席也是大热门,最接近的对手即马六甲首席部长兼副主席莫哈末阿里(Mohd Ali Rustam)所获得的提名数目远远不如他。
另外,取消展延党选对“纳慕配”阵营有利,这包括在提名榜上领先的副主席竞争者,希山慕丁、沙菲益阿达(Shafie Apdal)以及纳吉的亲信阿末扎希,甚至包括压倒阿都拉女婿凯里的巫青团团长候选人,马哈迪幼子慕克里兹(Mukhriz Mahathir)。三人合照“一图胜千言”有趣的是,就在慕尤丁呛声前不久,马来报章就大篇幅刊登他、纳吉及马哈迪在一场开斋节门户开放活动中,并肩而坐的照片。政治观察家认为,这张照片可谓“一图胜千言”,吐露出重要讯息即马哈迪就第三次逼宫行动的幕后操盘手。

MCA Youth Wants Swift Action Against Racist Political Leaders
October 17, 2008 17:50 PM

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 17 (Bernama) -- MCA Youth wants the government to initiate firm and swift action against political leaders who do not respect the ethnic rights of all Malaysians.The wing in its resolutions passed at the MCA Youth 45th general assembly at the party headquarters here Friday also condemned the actions of certain Umno leaders who had issued statements which were racist in nature as well as "extremist" government officers who curtailed the freedom of holding ethnic cultural and entertainment activities."Their actions disrupts race relations in the country, which has various races, religions and cultures. The MCA Youth calls on the authorities to take stern action against these extremists who disrupt the nation's harmony," the wing said in its resolution.In another resolution calling for the promotion of greater freedom, the Youth Wing urged the government to review the Internal Security Act (ISA) and Printing and Printing Presses Act as these two Acts gave powers to the police to detain anyone without trial and limited freedom of speech.The Youth wing also wanted the government to establish a systematic mechanism that would lessen bureaucratic red tape while disciplining civil servants in a bid to curb the menace of corruption as an effort to strengthen the nation's competitive capabilities and integrity.On the economy, the Youth Wing called on the Finance Ministry and Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) to execute an economic action plan to overcome the global economic crisis to boost confidence of local as well as foreign investors in the nation's economy."In view of the world economic status, all current economic plans must be reviewed and plans which are not business friendly must be disbanded."We have to relax regulations on equity ownership, identify weaknesses and eradicate unfairness. Efforts must also be undertaken to do away the Industrial Coordination Act (ICA) 1975 to allow Malaysia to be competitive in the international market," the Youth wing said.In an effort to protect Small-and-Medium Entreprises and encourage the spirit of entrepeneurship amongst low-wage earners, the MCA Youth called on the government to introduce a low-interest, micro-credit loan scheme for businesses which had a good track record on loan repayment.Touching on education, the Youth called on the government to institute a mechanism to develop Chinese-type national schools (SJK (C)) systematically and to ensure that all primary schools regardless of status receive equal assistance and budgets.To establish greater equality among all education institutions, it also asked for Chinese private schools be acknowledged as part of the national education system and be given funding to develop human capital in line with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi's vision."We also call on the government to be fair and transparent in selection of students for JPA scholarships. This is to further encourage excellent students to contribute to the nation's human capital," the MCA Youth added.At party level, the wing suggested for an amendment of the party constitution to allow the Youth Wing elected representatives to vote in the picking of national leaders besides allowing the Youth wing to have a say in the party's decision making process.The Youth wing also wanted its constitution amended to reduce the eligibility age for Youth members from the current 45 years to 40 years.

NEW Petrol Price for Tomorrow ~ [the 3rd PARTY]

[ the 3rd PARTY ] blogger, JP, had a day dream today about oil price drop in blogging about this :

New Petrol Price for Tomorrow
by { JP }

This could be what I see tomorrow when I pump "gold water" into my car in a petrol station :

The currrent world crude oil price for this month is below US$78 per barrel now ! - updated oil price 10/10/08 5:15pm

Remember we are having the price hike from RM1-92/litre up to RM2-70/litre when the world crude oil price for that time was about US$120 per barrel;
while the world crude oil price drop tremendously, what about our country's stated policy (to review and revise petrol price in monthly basis) in responding to this ?

Pretending "don't know ah? "

"Drop ... drop .... it will drop ... can you be patient until I announce it (sound familliar ?) "
(Everybody start cheering ... YEH ..!!) wait, see

"drop RM0-10 for RON97(again) "

While Malaysiakini reported that the parliament meeting held on tomorrow will be "spark enough" as Anwar is having his last motion to succeed his "take-over" plan.
(Check out Malaysiakini - Mandarin version for more news) We are wondering whether this dropping of petrol price will be announced by our new Finance Minister (yet tobe the new PM or new Opposition Leader) or the current Opposition Leader - Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Gerakan Will Not Join Opposition
Even If It Pulls Out Of BN, Says Selangor Chief

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 12 (Bernama) -- Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia will "in no way" join the opposition even if it pulls out of the Barisan Nasional (BN), Selangor Gerakan chief and Central Committee Member A. Kohilan Pillay said Sunday.

He said Gerakan was looking at all possibilities, including becoming an independent entity, but stressed that the party would not join the Pakatan Rakyat.

Whatever decision the party leadership made, it must be acceptable to the grassroots in unison, he said.

"This matter concerns our status and future and it would be dealt with in depth. We don't want to become another SAPP (Sabah Progressive Party) or MDP (Malaysian Democratic Party, a splinter of the DAP), where a crucial decision had caused a split in the party," he told reporters on the sidelines of the Gerakan national delegates conference, here.

After suffering a massive defeat in the March 8 general election, Gerakan saw many of its members quit or defect to the opposition, and this put tremendous pressure on the leadership to take drastic action for the betterment of the party.

Kohilan Pillay said the issue would not hamper the party's efforts at revitalisation.

"Those who quit were disappointed as they could not fulfill their personal agenda in the party. But now the ground sentiment on Gerakan is improving and I believe we are doing the right thing and heading in the right direction," he said.

1. Gerakan seeks to be a louder conscience for BN
by Andrew Ong (Malaysiakini) Oct 12, 08 3:34pm

Gerakan has often been called the ‘conscience of Barisan Nasional’ and as its 21st national delegates conference draws to a close, the party appears to be finding its own conscience.

Several delegates told Malaysiakini that during the closed door debates had been a weekend of introspection as the party wades through uncharted waters.
*We must be the 'bad son'
*An opposition within the BN itself
