Ahmad Said got the Menteri Besar seat because he threatened to jump ship with another assemblyman

This is an open secret in Terengganu. The kampung man, Ahmad Said will be retained as Menteri Besar until next election because BN cannot afford to lose Terengganu to PAS.

BN’s Terengganu dilemma

Kong See Hoh

KUALA LUMPUR: Talk is rife that Terengganu Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said may soon be replaced, which may not bode well for the two-seat majority Barisan Nasional (BN) state government.

According to a report in Sin Chew Daily today, given the slim majority in the state, BN is treading carefully as a change in allegiance by just two assemblymen is enough to cause the coalition to lose power in the state.

In the 13th general election (GE13), the Ahmad Said-led state BN held onto power winning just 17 of the total 32 seats.

A source told the daily that there was already talk right after GE13 that Ahmad Said would stay as mentri besar for only a year.

Now with the one-year tenure coming to a close next month, all eyes are on whether he would be replaced.

“It is learnt that Ahmad Said was not BN top leadership’s choice but due to certain agreement, the prime minister had allowed him to continue to lead the state (after GE13) with the condition that he steps down in a year,” said the source.

Nevertheless, the source added, the BN top guns have to tread carefully on Ahmad Said’s position given the hair’s-breadth majority the coalition has in the state.

BN has to consider the possibility that if he is forced to step down, Ahmad Said and assemblymen aligned to him may become PAS-friendly independents, allowing PAS to take power, the source pointed out.

Should BN decide to have Ahmad Said replaced, his successor is likely to be picked from among three assemblymen who are Umno division chiefs – Datuk Mohd Jidin Shafee (Permaisuri), Nawi Mohamed (Hulu Besut) and Datuk Ahmad Razif Abd Rahman (Seberang Takir).

Meanwhile, Ahmad Said said he was not aware of the speculation.

He declined comment, saying anyone could spread any rumour on the internet.

Change PDRM name to Polis UMNO

I say, you will never see similar grand funeral in Penang for next 30 years.

Total absence of police to maintain public order is a shame to an apolitical professional institute like PDRM.

Guan Eng questions absence of police during Karpal’s funeral
by christopher tan

GEORGE TOWN: The Penang government will attempt to determine why the police did not turn up during the funeral of Karpal Singh.

“The state would conduct a post-mortem to determine the reasons on why the police did not turn up as planned and work towards overcoming the weaknesses that may have cause any inconvenience to the public,” state Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng said.

“We hope the public can forgive and overlook any shortcomings during the funeral,” Lim said in a statement Monday, adding that the mammoth crowd was unexpected.

“We wish to apologise to all who came from far and near but did not have the opportunity to pay their last respects to Karpal Singh at Dewan Sri Pinang.

“We thank the 25,000 Malaysians who attended the funeral and 3,000 motorcyclists who came on their own accord without any prior arrangement to accompany the hearse to the crematorium in Batu Gantong.

“The public funeral by the state government is probably the largest in Penang’s history because the people of Penang and Malaysia made it so.

“Let us fearlessly follow Karpal in fighting for justice and rule of law as the bedrock of prosperity of our nation and economy,” Lim said.

Lim also urged the people to move forward and not only do the right thing but to do it right.

Those Malaysian Chinese still dreaming the Communist Chinese will be their savior shall wake up now

This is only article I agree with him. Those Malaysian Chinese still calling China as their motherland shall give up Malaysian citizenship and migrate to China for good sake.

即使在20世紀,天朝帝國已經終結,中國有了現代政府,但發生在印尼的兩次血腥事件,也是同樣處理,同樣結局。

Take my words, Mainland Chinese will spit on you as what had happened during the MH570 incident.

UMNO politicians have no choice and to polish China due to fall out with America.

Malaysia has its own panda [熊猫]

These two animals in Malaysia are also facing extinction like the giant panda from China. The annual rental of USD 1 million for pandas shall be re-channeled for our wild animal preservation.

Sun bear and leopard cat are own 熊猫 [马来熊+豹猫]. Zoo Negara can put sun bear and leopard cat in the panda exhibition hall if China declines to deliver a pair of giant panda to Malaysia. :-)
