Did Anwar Ibrahim tell the truth?

BERNAMA Interview with Hamid Awaludin
Hamid Awaludin was Indonesian minister of law and human rights from 2004-2007 when Jusuf Kallawas vice president, and was Indonesian ambassador to Russia and Belarus from 2008-2011.

Anwar Ibrahim claims it was Jusuf Kallawho approached him whereas JusufKalla said he was approached by Anwar. Which is true?

Hamid Awaludin:

I was present during Jusuf Kalla’s discussions with both Anwar and Najib. It was Jusuf Kalla who accepted Anwar’s request to mediate. He did not take theinitiative and approach Anwar. Jusuf Kalla does not have any political and economic interests in Malaysia.He is busy with his affairs in Indonesia. So why wouldhe take the initiative and approach Anwar? It isn’t logical.

Jusuf Kalla considers both Anwar and Najib as good friends. He wanted to help because they were competing fiercely with one another. That is how hesaw this.  

Anwar claims there were several "preconditions" in the agreement elections, fair media, etc. Can you outline any preconditions?

Hamid Awaludin:

I am very sure that there were no preconditions discussed between Jusuf Kalla and Anwar. For me, adeal is deal. And there was a deal that both parties – Anwar and Najib – agreed to.

Some people always try and find a loophole after the event, or an excuse not to deliver on their promise.Some people are different in character to others.

Anwar now claims PM Najib didn't sign the agreement and it was therefore not valid. Jusuf Kalla says the PM did give his verbal agreement and therefore the deal was agreed by both parties, and was valid. Is Anwar correct or is JusufKalla?

Hamid Awaludin:

Anwar knew that Najib did not sign the agreement.Najib had very reasonable, political reasons for not signing the agreement and Anwar understood and accepted it.

But Najib gave his word that he would honour the agreement. He consented to the agreement. Basic morality teaches us that man’s word is more important than his signature. And deeds are more important than any declaration. Najib delivered on his promise. He called for national reconciliation during hiselection result acceptance speechNajib’s deeds matched his word.

On Election Day, do you feel that the agreement was still in place? Had anything happened before Election Day to invalidate the agreement?

Hamid Awaludin:

I am very sure that nothing jeopardized the agreementin the run up to the election or on Election Day. The agreement still stood. Things changed after Najib was declared the winner. Even the day after Najib’s victory, I was personally optimistic that deal is deal, and both sides would abide by the dealBut Anwar broke the deal. Perhaps he was unable to manage his followers,especially because the DAP had won more seats thanAnwar’s own party. Anwar found himself in a difficultpositionBut a leader must lead, not be led.

Do you and Jusuf Kalla feel Anwar broke the deal? If so, how?

Hamid Awaludin:

I feel that Anwar still does not accept political reality.Perhaps he has things he will not say because he doesn’t want to hurt people. I dont know.

Do you feel Anwar was/is sincere in wanting national reconciliation in Malaysia?

Hamid Awaludin:

I believed that Anwar had sincerity and I still hope hehas.

Why do you think Anwar is behaving in the manner in which he is – denying the agreement, refusing to cede defeat andorganising protests across Malaysia?

Hamid Awaludin:

From the beginning, Anwar convinced himself that he would win the election. He had struggled for so longand he thought that this was the end of the struggle. He thought he would win the battle and defeat BarisanNasionalHis belief was strengthened by opinion polls that were often in his favourAnd each rally Anwarheld during the campaign attracted massive crowds. But in the end, the people’s choice is the ultimatefactor in democracy.
Anwar believed he would win the election but he was afraid Najib would resist and not hand over power. So Anwar wanted insurance against this scenario. That is why he came up with the idea of the deal.

Sedition... only in Kit Siang?

Former Court of Appeal judge Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah and Director General of Education Tan Sri Abdul Rahman Arshad have graduated as Opposition politicians' latest punching bags. 

DAP secretary general Lim Guan Eng's father, Lim Kit Siang, who happens to be DAP's supreme leader and a staunch believer of unbridled freedom has started 'barking' at the two gentlemen. 

As usual those foreign-funded 'independent' and 'free' news portals who eat, drink and breathe nothing but freedom, have been barking together... if not louder than Kit Siang and his ilk. 

Kit Siang said the police should have arrested and charged the ex-judge and former DG of Education under the Sedition Act.

Listen to the ex-judge and please help identify the 'sedition' that the freedom fighter and DAP-owner is barking out aloud about. 

p/s Kit Siang, when is the DAP CEC re-election ah?

UPDATED! Who is the real 'CELAKA' ?

UPDATED with video.

Ex-Hindraf leader S.Jayatas who is currently PKR's political bureau member tried his old tricks at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters this morning. 

As usual the PKR lackey and a bunch of familiar crusaders of 'police brutality' appeared at the police station to lodge reports over the death of a suspected criminal while in detention. 

'Police brutality' and 'death in custody' have been the staple diet of the likes of PKR's N.Surendran (who was also there), Lateefa Koye and a few other Suaram activists but Jayatas certainly went a step further today to outshine the other PKR attention seekers.

Being new in PKR, maybe the disgruntled ex-Hindraf Jayathas was thinking out of the box by attempting to be a full blown actor, rather than pretending to be an activist.

The three 'scenes' below certainly qualifies Jayatas to be an actor, better than his PKR supremo Sivaji the Boss.

Scene 1 - Jayatas pushes himself against (runs into) a group of policemen on duty inside the Dang Wangi district police headquarters compound.
Scene 2 - The actor, as scripted in his head, drops himself on the tarmac while policemen watch his antics in disbelief.
Scene 3 - PKR vice president Surendren (in white) suddenly appears at the scene and Jayatas shouts 'celaka in Polis tolak'. 
p/s My simple advice to Jayatas - This 'dropping dead on the road' drama won't get you anywhere... try fasting till being hospitalized, you may end up as a Deputy Minister.

Thank You Shaziman Abu Mansor, you can't be DROPPED

Contrary to popular belief and inaccurate news reports, Tampin Member of Parliament since 1999 Datuk Seri Shaziman Abu Mansor  was not DROPPED from PM Najib Razak's 2013 cabinet. 

Shaziman, the Works Minister in the previous cabinet, was not DROPPED but the true gentleman of a politician opted to remain as an ordinary MP on his own will. 

In fact, I was made to understand that the 49 year old Civil Engineer was even reluctant to defend his Tampin parliamentary seat and was ready to allow other capable leaders from his Umno Division to contest in the recently concluded GE. He was persuaded to defend Tampin.

Why this remarkable young politicians with an untainted track record chose to pull the hand brake is anybody's guess but he was certainly not sulking or demanding higher positions in the party or the government. 

Shaziman may be young, indeed very young in political age, but his uncommon decision will certainly put many other politicians to shame. His understanding of politics and his sincerity in serving the rakyat will certainly put many dead wood warlords to shame (if they have any left).

Well, I just wanted to drive home the fact that Shaziman was NOT dropped from the cabinet. He opted out of the cabinet in a very honorable manner at a time when other lesser politicians are trying or holding the PM at ransom for perks and positions.

Tampin folks should stand tall and be proud, for you have a true leader who is not bound by perks or positions. 

THANK YOU for your service to this nation as a member of the cabinet Datuk Seri Shaziman Abu Mansur, you have done Tampin proud.

p/s Those sulking, merajuk-king, sabotaging, crying, foot thumping politicians could seek Shaziman's help to nurture them to be better human beings since the Tampin MP would have much free time now...after his fairways and greens.

Moron with a 'spring' in his head

A moron who thinks he is god's gift to Malaysia
KUALA LUMPUR: Pro-Pakatan Rakyat groups have vowed to overthrow the Barisan Nasional government this year through a massive street rally.

Speakers at a forum held yesterday unanimously agreed that waiting for five years until the next general election was too long, and vowed to overthrow BN this year through “force”.
The street rally is rumoured to be as early as May 17 or 18 to overthrow BN and capture Putrajaya.
“We will take to the streets and take over Putrajaya. If we really want to overthrow them, there is no other way. Democracy does not work,” Haris Ibrahim from ABU (Anything But Umno) told the 1,500-strong crowd here.
“The people cannot wait anymore. We don’t want to wait another five years. We will take the streets,” he added. -

This moron's statement is outright sedition - promoting an Arab Spring kind of revolution in Malaysia. He certainly has a spring in his head but are we going to wait for it to be bloody?

Please take the necessary action against this MORON before its too late... before the silent ones start moron-hunting. TQ 

p/s Wonder if the Bar Council supports this moron who also happens to be a lawyer.
