People voted for Barisan Rakyat! Don’t make us regret…

No DAP CEC mandate for PAS Menteri Besar in Perak

March 12th, 2008 (1 hour ago) « 156 Comments »

The decision to appoint a PAS Assemblyman Mohamad Nizar Jamaludin as Perak Mentri Besar has caused shock and consternation to DAP leaders, members and supporters.The DAP Central Executive Committee, at its emergency meeting in Penang on Sunday, 9th March 2008, had given approval for the formation of a Perak coalition government comprising 18 DAP Assembly members, seven PKR Assemblymen and six PAS Assemblymen.

DAP is prepared to accept DAP chairman and Assemblyman for Sitiawan Ngeh Koo Ham or PKR Behrang Assemblyman Jamaluddin Mohd Radzi as Perak Mentri Besar.

As the appointment of PAS Assemblyman for Pasir Panjang Mohamad Nizar Jamaludin as Perak Mentri Besar representing the third and smallest political party in the proposed coalition has not received the mandate of the CEC, DAP Perak Assemblymen will stay away from the swearing-in ceremony for Perak Mentri Besar scheduled tomorrow.

12th General Elections – Beyond Race


‘We are in the process of speeding up the formality in forming the Barisan Alternatif.”

Excuse me! Barisan Alternatif? For Pete’s sake (sorry RPK no pun intended) please drop that BA name OK! 
The Rakyat voted and they voted with heart for ‘BARISAN RAKYAT’ – read this again ‘BARISAN RAKYAT’.
If anyone still don’t get it please remember BA didn’t shake BN down, its BR that did it therefore its most appropriate to name the new alliance as ‘BARISAN RAKYAT’ period! komprendo? If PKR-DAP-PAS-MDP-ETC-ETC names it any other name we’ll run a petition to reject it how’s that? 

Three parties ‘may formalise their alliance’

MALAYSIA’S three main opposition parties are considering a formal alliance after their strongest showing in 50 years in the March 8 general election, said former deputy prime minister Anwar Ibrahim.Datuk Seri Anwar said the parties have held initial discussions about signing an agreement and creating a shadow Cabinet.

‘We need a more cohesive working relationship,’ he told reporters yesterday in Petaling Jaya, outside Kuala Lumpur.

A united opposition would be a ‘government in waiting’, he said.

But Datuk Seri Anwar, who has ruled out returning to the ruling coalition, declined to say whether he wanted to be prime minister or even be known as the alliance’s official leader.

‘I don’t like to be called an opposition leader,’ he said. ‘Alternative government. That sounds more political.’

He also refused to say when he might stand for Parliament through a by-election in one of the constituencies his party holds.

He is not eligible to run in an election until mid-April because of a corruption conviction on charges he denies.

‘I’m eager to be back in Parliament,’ he said. ‘I will attend the first session from the public gallery.’

Datuk Seri Anwar also told reporters that some political parties have tried to lobby him to join them.

‘Yes, there are parties asking, their people came and lobbied me to join them. I met them with an open manner. I am willing to exchange opinions with them. But I never think of joining other parties, Umno or Barisan Nasional forever and ever,’ he said.

His Parti Keadilan Rakyat, the Chinese-based Democratic Action Party and Parti Islam SeMalaysia will share power in four new state governments.

The former deputy premier, in a separate statement yesterday, warned the government not to sabotage the transition of power in the opposition-ruled states, saying it would undermine the stock market and the currency.

‘We are waiting for more details from Anwar before we respond. We are keeping an open mind.’ MR LIM KIT SIANG, Democratic Action Party leader, when asked if his party could work with PAS in a formal alliance
‘We are in the process of speeding up the formality in forming the Barisan Alternatif.”
