YES or NO ?

I think it's time for Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to stop their political drama and tell Malaysians, once and for all, their (PKR, PAS and DAP) collective stand on the implementation of Hudud in this country.

Pakatan Rakyat supremo Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim should not be hiding behind his wife cum Keadilan president Datin Seri Wan Azizah when issues that really matter are being hotly debated.

Come on Saudaraaaaaa Anwar Ibrahiiiiim!!! Just tell us YES or NO? 

We the loyal Malaysians who uphold the Constitution are keen to know what you’re really made of.

Some say you (Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim) are a chameleon that changes ‘color’ according to the audience.

So, come on Datuk Seri … prove your critics wrong and state your ONE & ONLY stance on HUDUD.

Will Pakatan Rakyat implement Hudud, if/when it comes to power … when you’re THE Prime Minister flanked by deputy PMs from both the DAP and PAS?

p/s By the way, where is Saudaraaaaaaaa Lim Kit Siang and the ‘toothless’ Lion of Jelutong ?

Game Over brothers?

Anwar Ibrahim does not have the balls to declare his support for Hudud or otherwise. Either way, he is screwed to seventh heaven.

anwar bacul! anwar adalah bencana kepada negara tercinta ini, sebab itulah Allah telah mencabut 'layar' dari kapal-nya lebih kurang sepuloh tahun yang lalu.
Kini 'bencana' itu muncul kembali tetapi percayalah, Allah itu maha berkuasa dan maha mengetahui.
Yang berpura-pura dan menjadi dalang akan menerima padah-nya, walaupun di-junjung oleh negara paling 'tidak berperikemanusian' di-dunia ini.
anwar akan hancur sepertimana pembelot2 lain dalam sejarah negara menemui titik-nokhtah mereka.

DAP agrees to PAS candidate but with conditions

PETALING JAYA: The DAP will support a PAS candidate for the Jan 17 Kuala Terengganu by-election only if the Islamist party does not pursue its agenda for an Islamic state with hudud and qisas laws.

DAP chairman Karpal Singh said DAP has never been inconsistent in its stance against the introduction of such laws because this went against the provisions of the Federal Constitution.

On Dec 23, Karpal had also released a statement reminding that a five-man Supreme Court panel, led by former Lord President Tun Salleh Abbas, had made a judicial pronouncement in 1988 that Malaysia was a secular state, not an Islamic one, according to the Constitution.

“Following my statement, (PAS vice-chairman) Datuk Husam Musa retracted his statement unconditionally. I stated that with the retraction, DAP would support the PAS candidate for the Kuala Terengganu by-election,” he said in a statement on Monday.

Karpal said this in response to MIC president Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu’s statement on Sunday calling him a “toothless tiger" and criticising the DAP for supporting PAS.

“Obviously, Samy, as usual, has not checked his facts,” Karpal said, adding that since the March 8 general elections, Samy Vellu had lost substantial support among the Indians.

SHAH ALAM: Kapar member of parliament S. Manikavasa- gam said Pas president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang was ungrateful and a backstabber for asking him to resign his post as an MP before he had made his final decision.

He said Hadi did not respect him as a Pakatan Rakyat member of parliament when the Pas president suggested that he step down as an MP if he wanted to resign from his post in Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) on Saturday.

"Earlier, it was the menteri besar (Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim) and now it is Hadi. This is not right. They should have discussed it with me.

"I guess they could not wait for me to resign and quit the party even when I have not made a final decision.

"Hadi forgot that the Indian community and I had helped a lot during the last general election.
"Previously, the Indian community did not support Pas but now they are willing to hold Pas flags," he said when contacted yesterday.

Manikavasagam said he would make an official announcement on whether he would quit his party post or otherwise in a press conference on Wednesday.

Pakatan Rakyat Row Hots Up: Karpal chides Kapar rep, urges him to quit

Email to friend Print article

KUALA LUMPUR: The Kapar member of parliament should resign as MP and wait another five years before contesting, DAP chairman Karpal Singh said yesterday.

He said S. Manikavasagam, who is expected to resign from Parti Keadilan Rakyat before the New Year, was elected as an MP on a PKR ticket.

"People did not elect him in his personal capacity. He has no right to leave PKR and join any other party.

"His only other option is to resign so that the people in the constituency can decide what they want," Karpal said.

Karpal said there was a constitutional provision which states that an elected representative who resigns cannot stand for an election or by-election for a period of five years.
"This constitutional provision was included in the constitution by way of amendment by former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad when Semangat 46 was formed."

Karpal said Manikavasagam should not use the five-year ban as an excuse to remain an MP.

"Under the circumstances, he should resign. If he decides that he is unhappy with PKR, then a by-election would be proper," he said.

Karpal also said Selangor assembly speaker Teng Chang Khim should not have got into a spat with Manikavasagam and Klang MP Charles Santiago over the Klang Sentral Terminal issue.

Teng said Santiago had been bought over by the BN when he protested against the relocation of the current bus and taxi station to the new Klang Sentral Terminal.

Feuds hurting opposition
By Hazlin Hassan, Malaysia Correspondent

Mr Anwar's multiracial Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), the DAP and PAS
formed the loose PR alliance a month after the opposition's
biggest-ever electoral success in the March general election. --

KUALA LUMPUR - MALAYSIA'S opposition is looking battered as open feuds
break out among its leaders ahead of an important by-election.

A major issue that could split the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) alliance is the
insistence by one of its members, Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS), to
push ahead with its agenda of imposing hudud or Islamic criminal laws.

The PAS move - as made known by vice-president Husam Musa recently -
has outraged its alliance partner, the Democratic Action Party (DAP).

The DAP, which draws its support mostly from the Chinese and Indian
communities, is deeply opposed to the proposed laws which, among other
things, allow for the amputation of limbs for thieves and caning for

DAP chairman Karpal Singh has urged de facto opposition leader Anwar
Ibrahim to say openly that he is against hudud laws in Malaysia. Datuk
Seri Anwar has stayed mum.

Mr Anwar's multiracial Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), the DAP and PAS
formed the loose PR alliance a month after the opposition's
biggest-ever electoral success in the March general election.

But now they are crossing swords not just over the hudud laws.
Infighting over various issues has also broken out among PAS, DAP and
PKR MPs in opposition-ruled Selangor.

DAP MPs have criticised PAS over its insistence that beer not be
served at football matches.

Meanwhile, a DAP MP Charles Santiago is openly feuding with a senior
party member who accused him of having been bought over by the ruling

And the PKR camp is riven by internal disputes that prompted a threat
by PKR lawmaker S. Manikavasagam to quit the party.

There is also a bitter power struggle among some top PKR leaders in

PKR information chief Tian Chua downplayed the infighting. 'We will
have to find a solution, and negotiate with all parties involved,' he
told The Sunday Times.

But the by-election in Kuala Terengganu is due on Jan 17, leaving the
opposition little time to mend its image.

Rebel MP vents his frustration

Kapar MP S. Manikavasagam has reached the end of his PKR tether,
blaming certain party leaders who do not practise what they used to
preach, for his disenchantment.

NINE months after being elected as Kapar MP with a 12,297-vote
majority, S. Manikavasagam is angry, broke and powerless.
"Appointed municipal councillors have more power and access to funds
than the elected MPs"- S. MANIKAVASAGAM

The PKR supreme council member and one of its three deputy liaison
chiefs for Selangor, has declared that he will quit the party on the
last day of the year, come hell or high water.

“I’ve been quite sore for some time now. PKR leaders promised a lot
but what have they really done after winning power?” he asked when met
at a coffeeshop in Section 8, Petaling Jaya on Friday evening.

Manikavasagam, known to his friends in the party and the outlawed
Hindraf movement as “Mike”, said it was the attitude of certain PKR
leaders which led him to the end of the rope.

“I have seen their true colours. They don’t practise what they used to
preach. Some have become very arrogant, even telling me not to behave
like the Opposition. How quickly people forget who they were before.”

Selangor MB Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim tops the list of leaders bearing
the brunt of his scathing attacks.

“Khalid has never been a true political leader. He is a corporate man
unused to resolving problems faced by the poor.

“He has no time to meet them, whether they are hit by natural
disasters or feel betrayed by the new state government’s pledges,” he
said, citing the storm in Selat Klang, the destruction of a Hindu
shrine in Kampung Tasek Tambahan by the Ampang district council and
the relocation of the Klang bus and taxi terminal as examples.

Manikavasagam, 43, a former logistics manager, also lambasted the MB
for introducing ineffective administrative policies in Selangor.

“The system he is promoting is clearly wrong. Under his leadership,
appointed municipal councillors have more power and access to funds
than the elected MPs.”

“It invites corruption and wastage. MPs and elected representatives
have to be mute during council meetings. I stopped attending because
the meetings became meaningless,” he added.

He said high-handed “Little Napoleons” flourished under the system and
recalled an incident in which his political secretary S. Shanmugam was
chased out from a briefing on the shifting of the taxi and bus
terminal by the Klang municipal council.

Manikavasagam is also peeved by delays in resolving issues pertaining
to land meant for the poor in Kg Perepat, Batu Arang and Batu Caves.

“Land matters come under the MB’s portfolio. He has several highly
paid officers in a special task force to tackle the matter.”

“So, why has this remained unresolved by an administration which is
supposed to champion the people?” he asked.

Manikavasagam said the lack of funding for constituencies was the main
grouse of other PKR MPs and state representatives in Selangor, adding
that he was the only one who dared to voice this out openly.

“Everything needs money. The people not only expect their wakil rakyat
to bring benefits to them but also resolve their immediate financial

“I meet an average of 50 persons a day, and a huge chunk of my
allowance goes towards solving their problems.

The Kapar MP regards himself as Yang Berhutang rather than Yang
Berhormat for his personal debts have piled up to RM60,000 since being
elected in March.

He said the MB should have done more to help PKR MPs and state
representatives like appointing them to government-owned companies.

Manikavasagam was a Reformasi activist who was encouraged by the then
PKR Youth chief Ezam Mohd Noor to join PKR in 1999. Ezam has since
joined Umno.

Among his first political duties for the party was to help PKR
vice-president Sivarasa Rasiah and current Subang MP, who was the
party’s candidate for Ampang Jaya in the 1999 general election.

He also regards Hindraf leader P. Uthayakumar, who is under ISA
detention as among his mentors in NGO activism and grassroots

“I learned alot from Ezam and Uthayakumar. They gave me the confidence
to speak and act on behalf of those who could not.

“These days, I am criticised for speaking openly. I have been
threatened to toe the line or quit the party,” he said.

Manikavasagam said has been very frank with PKR adviser Datuk Seri
Anwar Ibrahim and had raised his problems with him in the past.

“He also knows that I have always been close to Ezam. I have hidden
nothing. I even told him that I met Ezam during the Permatang Pauh
by-elections in August,” he said.

He said although he won Kapar as a PKR candidate, the party should not
claim too much credit for his election as MP.

“My association with the five Hindraf leaders under detention boosted
my credentials a lot. I am also seen as someone who will fight for the
rights of all communities.”

Manikavasagam said he expected various allegations to be hurled
against him, including claims that he had been bought over.

“They can say whatever they want. My conscience is clear,” he said.

Asked whether he would join any other party, he said he would keep an
open mind to all suggestions, adding that among whose opinions he
would seek would be self-exiled Hindraf leader P. Waythamoorthy.

“For now, my immediate focus will be on serving my 114,000
constituents as an independent MP,” he said.
